The Bears are bad normally but they're transitioning to a 3-4 defense and don't have the pieces. This should be fun.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

A road date with the Jags isn't what it was two years ago, while Cam no longer has Kelvin.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

The Packers offense dodged a major bullet when WR Randall Cobb suffered a minor should injury. Rodgers has 31 career touchdown passes to just 8 interceptions against the Bears. He should be the top quarterback of Week1.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Newton will be hurt by the loss of WR Kelvin Benjamin, but the Jaguars were just 17th against fantasy quarterbacks last year and he should be able to provide QB2 value.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Rodgers has destroyed the Bears his whole career and this Bears team is lacking in quality defensive backs.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Newton will need to use his legs more than last season, which should keep his floor pretty high. I'm not expecting huge passing numbers though.
