Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.
RG3 might suck in this game as the Texans have a still underrated defense, but he'll still get you fantasy numbers with every awkward slide.

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.

Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.
RGIII still shaky, and Texans pass D looks sick.

Major struggles in the preseason with learning how to become a pocket passer and now pitted against one of the better pass defenses doesn't bold well for Griffin and the Redskins gang in Week 1.
