Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.

Going up against his former team? 7 TDs in '13 opener? Yes, please.

Newton is a game-time decision. Even if he plays, your backup QB is probably a better option this week.

Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Peyton probably wouldn't mind topping his old team in his new stomping grounds and Indy's D really isn't all that great without Robert Mathis.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

*Falling Star* - It is looking more likely that Newton will sit Week 1. If he does, his replacement will be Derek Anderson. Either way, the fragility of the decision making warrants a DO-NOT-START for CN. If he does start there is still a great chance he is pulled if the game gets out of hand or he is hit hard. Not worth the risk.

No Welker, no Prater. Career year last year. Manning should still do very well in 2014 but in week 1 he won't be the best of the best. He will still be pretty darn good though.

I look for Manning to start the season strong at home against a Colts D that was only 17th in 2013 against fantasy quarterbacks and will be without DE Robert Mathis.
