I don't have a ton of faith in the New England secondary and the Steelers have a ton of weapons in the passing game. They will also be without RB Le'Veon Bell, which means they should be throwing the ball a ton in this game.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The Eagles allowed the 3rd most fantasy points to quarterbacks last year and QB Matt Ryan usually plays well at home. He should have a big game in the season opener.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The Patriots are without Darrelle Revis and the Steelers will need to throw the ball a ton without Le'Veon Bell and a good defense to keep the score low.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

This game has the highest over/under of the week and should live up to the Monday Night billing.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

I don't love using guys on TNF games ever and Big Ben is without a key target, RB and o-lineman.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Philly has upgraded their D but Matt Ryan is at home and Julio Jones can't be stopped in this matchup. I'm expecting a shootout.
