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 Chargers were a respectable 13th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, Stafford has low QB1 upside because he plays with WR Calvin Johnson and WR Golden Tate.

- 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

 
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

I like Stafford this year and though he usually stinks on the road, the Bolts don't have a ton of defensive bite so a top 15 finish is in the cards
