Tampa Bay allowed the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks last year. I think they will be much improved under Lovie Smith, but Newton is still a low QB1 in this matchup.
Arizona was impossible to move the ball against on the ground last year, Rivers is going to have to throw the ball against a Cardinals D that was only 21st against fantasy quarterbacks last year.
