Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.

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

- Austin Lee, FootballGuys

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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Romo is fine and is at home, plus the Niners are a bit depleted. I think he's better than some think in this one.

- 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.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

The Cowboys passing game is one of the better ones in the NFL. And considering the poor defense, you have to love the play from behind cheap fantasy points. Romo should be a solid QB1 this week.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

 
Romo has a tough opener, going against a San Fran D that allowed the fifth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks in 2013.
