Prime-time game Monday night, Stafford faces the Giants who fared very well against the pass last season. Still a rock solid QB1 option in Week 1.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Giants did improve on defense over the offseason but Stafford has weapons for days. Hard to see him stinking up the joint on MNF.
Shootout in Denver bodes well for Luck and a Colts team supposedly willing to throw the ball again.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Giants were 14th against fantasy quarterbacks, but they revamped their defense and I have my doubts they can matchup with all of the Lions new offensive weapons.
Denver should be much improved over their 25th ranking against fantasy quarterbacks, but I still think this game will be a shootout and both fantasy quarterbacks will have big games.

In a shootout? Denver's D is much better, tho.
