Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the team's final preseason game, and he'll be the starter in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if QB Cam Newton (rib cage) isn't ready by then. Newton's injury increases the likelihood that the team will keep QB Joe Webb on roster, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Fantasy Tip: Carolina faces an undervalued Bucs defense in Week 1. If Anderson were to start, he shouldn't be considered in any leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is still a low-end QB1. However, the injury could become more severe with a certain amount of contact. Be cautious when drafting him.
