Broncos D shouldn't be elite to start the year but its still Flacco on the road.
Playing it a bit safe with Weeden, as matchup isn't amazing, but I think he has a shot at home.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
During The Ravens playoff run Flacco was impossible to stop and the Broncos found that out as he threw for 331 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 38-35 overtime win. They used the run to set up the deep pass to Torrey Smith and it worked like a charm. This time around the Broncos are also missing Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil so Flacco should have a secure pocket. But I could see the Ravens trying to slow this game down and running it down their throats. He's an upside play, b...

Flacco has adopted the Eli Manning label confusing many beginner fantasy players with the idea that because he has won a Super Bowl, hes going to be successful in my fantasy lineup. Wrong!
 
  
Taylor Smith

Is Flacco the guy that lit the world on fire in the postseason and led the Ravens to an improbable Super Bowl title? Or is he the guy we've known for years before that, who will put up middle-of-the-road QB numbers and spare everyone to death in fantasy? We shall see.
The Browns were trashed for drafting Weeden so high, considering he was already 28. But he's got a big arm, and the Browns have a pretty dangerous group of young weapons around him. He'll never be great, but he's shown that he can do some things downfield.

Remember, he took Denver for 331 yards and 3 TDs in the playoffs.

BENCH - Denver gave up the 10th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 15.0.
Miami gave up the 18th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 16.5.

Anquan Boldin was the best WR the Ravens had. They did not replace him, and who knows if Torrey Smith can really handle being the #1a/#1b WR for this team. Dennis Pitta will be active, but Pitta is not a Top 10 TE talent wise. The Ravens will have to lean on Ray Rice more than ever in 2013.
Weeden has a nice arm and this Norv Turner offense will make the Browns a better team. Still with that being said, Brandon Weeden is far from a safe-start at the QB position in Fantasy. Josh Gordon is a very immature #1 WR, and if the #1 WR is not even that great and you don't know if he will show up. On top of that the Browns are going to run the ball like there is no tomorrow, I would use Weeden only if you are desperate in 2 QB leagues.

Has been disappointing fantasy asset due to upside and with Boldin out of town/Pitta out for year, I am crossing off cheat sheet
