The Colts are heading towards running a 2 TE offense with a west coast scheme. At least those 2 TEs would be Top 15 options if they were on separate teams, but West Coast in todays NFL does not work in Fantasy. Rich Gannon/Donovan McNabb/Brad Johnson were probably the best West Coast QBs of the early 2000s. Those 3400 Yards 27 TDs is not good anymore in todays down field bomb offenses.RG3 is ahead of schedule with his knee. It is too early to say Adrian Peterson, but everyone believes it is exactly that. He has not lost a step, which means he will still be a running threat. That game against SF late in the season will be one to watch. Look for the Redskins to get Alfred Morris the ball more than ever.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Raiders ranked just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks last year and Luck is leading one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL.RGIII has a dream matchup against an Eagles D that has looked worse in this preseason than they did last season, which is saying something, seeing they ranked just 27th against fantasy quarterbacks last year.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
With Bruce Arians gone, its unlikely that Luck will lead the league in passing attempts when throwing past the 20 yard mark. After having a year under his belt, Luck will be a more polished and efficient passer.Being ranked 9th on our list is simply due to his January 9th ACL tear. Analysts have harped all off-season that Griffin needs to eliminate unnecessary hits when scrambling for extra yardage. His success will be determined by his health and ability to stay on the field. If Adrian Peterson showed us anything last season, it was that coming off major knee surgery and succeeding is definitely possible.

Luck vs. the Raiders at home, yes please.   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
The Colts look to have more of a West Coast offense type thing going on here with Luck's college coordinator now in the mix, which should help to limit his interception totals.From everything we've heard thus far, there's no reason to expect RGIII won't be ready to roll by opening day. If he is completely healthy, he's a very good fantasy starter. Will the Redskins limit his running opportunities in light of the ACL injury? We'll see.

Oakland could be the worst team in the league.Shootout  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
Oakland gave up the 7th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.5.Philadelphia gave up the 2nd most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 21.6.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Raiders are awful so it'd be a shock if Luck was anything short of amazing at home in week 1.RG3 could be cautious in his first game back, or this could be an explosive shootout. I'll bank on the latter.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Luck missed much of his rookie year's off season work due to school and quickly had to learn a high risk/reward offense and it showed in his numbers, especially interceptions and completion percentage. Now with his old Stanford offense in place and a season under his belt we will see an even better, more efficient player. The Raiders have little in the way of defense and Luck will pick them apart. My only concern is him sitting in the 4th quarter.I think Washington will give Morris a chance to dominate this game to ease RGIII back in, but it's hard to sit him against such a poor pass defense. The Eagles led the league in touchdowns given up through the air. In week 11 he threw for 4 against them last season. I'd really need a top backup to sit him.

Should be a QB1 for the next decadeQB2 and RB2 combined when healthy equals an elite fantasy option  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 Perhaps a bit too harsh on Griffin here, but, in first week back after seeing no action in preseason/expressing sincere over-eagerness to get back on the field we should expect to see an uneven effort.

Fantasy Football Freaks
Luck looks to have a pretty tough schedule as of now with Oakland being the only opponent ranking in the bottom 10 against QB's.He destroyed the Eagles week 11 a year ago: 200 yards and 4 TDs passing and 84 yards on the ground.
