1. Freeman looked awful in the preseason, but he was a fairly consistent fantasy QB down the stretch last season -- Romo also has Revis Island to deal with, and overall a much better secondary to face against NYJ.
I'd go Freeman at home, but I think this is a coin flip really.
2. With Tate you have two major issues -- 1, the possibility that Arian Foster might actually play (monitor that situation very closely) and 2. the fact that Derrick Ward is going to get the start if Foster is out. I expect Tate will get touches, but no idea how many.
I'm not as scared of Kerry Collins as a lot of people apparently are. He's not in Manning's universe, but he's probably good for 20 TDs over the course of a season, and I'd expect Wayne to get the ball a lot.
3. If Newton does anything on offense, it'll be pushing the ball downfield for a big play. That means Steve Smith will be involved. I'd give him the nod over Tolbert.
