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.
Tampa Bay allowed the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks last year. I think they will be much improved under Lovie Smith, but Newton is still a low QB1 in this matchup.

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.
