I'd start Steve Smith. Newton won't complete a lot of passes, but he'll throw a few bombs and Smith will probably catch one or more of them (for a TD?). I just don't see Cleveland giving AJ Smith much room to hurt them. They have a solid secondary. On offense, I expect the Browns to use Hillis to eat up clock (limiting the touches the Bengals O will have), whereas I see Kolb and Fitzy putting up points fast, giving the Panthers more chances to throw and try to catch up.

Good luck!

Tough one but I think I'd be more inclined to start Smith as well. Both team's QBs aren't very good but what we do know is that Smith is a proven receiver whereas this will be Green's first NFL season game. I'd gamble with a former top 5 WR than a rookie playing his first game.
