It's about time Dez goes into the season as a Top 5 WR. He has all the tools in the world to be on top of this list, if it was not for Miles Austin he probably would be. The Cowboys star player is #88, and it is time for Dallas to recognize that.Tom Brady will get his numbers. 4,000 Yards is automatic, and Danny Amendola is more than capable of being the #1 Option. While Gronk is the #1 option, Amendola will be an amazing #2 in the passing game for Brady. Danny was able to get numbers being the only WR in a Sam Bradford offense, he will definitely get numbers as the sometimes goto option for Brady.  
Derek Lofland

The Giants allowed the 4th most points to fantasy receivers last year, so I expect Romo to target Bryant early and often in this game.The Bills were 14th against fantasy receivers last year, but that was with CB Stephon Gilmore in the lineup. They are going to have no answers for Amendola in the opener.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Giants can't stop Dez and he's at home.Buffalo is without their top corner so Amendola could have a rocking debut.

 I think Danny is going to be a big contributor in the Patriots offense this year. Plays the 15th ranked Buffalo Bills pass D.

Back-to-back breakout seasons. Recorded 70 yards plus in 10 games, 12 TDs total (10 in Weeks 10-16 alone) Owners should consider Bryant a solid No.1 Fantasy WR option worth drafting as early as Round 2 in the majority of leagues.Danny is a high-volume receiver with 153 receptions in his past 28 games. Consider Amendola a low-end No.2/high-end No.3 WR in standard leagues that could approach 100 receptions as Welker's replacement if he can stay healthy, making him a potential No.2 in PPR formats. Look for Amendola to be drafted in Round 5 in the majority of all leagues.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The Giants pass defense was awful last season giving up the fifth most receiving yards in the league. Add to that Bryant emergence as an unstoppable force and you have a recipe for fake points.His possible groin injury is worrisome, but I truly doubt he'll play against a Buffalo team the Patriots should have an easy time with if he's not going to play fully. He is the #1 target for Brady and I should be the top point getter with Gronkowski out.

 Solid WR2 potential in a depleted vertical attack for the Patriots.

Dez finally broke out last season, and many have him tabbed to finally vault himself into the top tier with the best of the best.

Remember the Dez Bryant Rules!?! Bryant has seemed to conquer the character issues that plagued his rookie seasons in the NFL. If you had or went up against Dez in a championship-bout (Week 16) last year, you remember his performance of 224 receiving yards and 2 TDs. This physical wide-out has the kind of games that puts teams away. With a tunnel-vision QB in Tony Romo beind Center, we expect much of the same in 2013. The Dez Bryant Rules of 2012: http://www.legionreport.com/2012/08/28/the-...Plagued with injuries every year, if Amendola can stay healthy in 2013 envision a Wes Welker type season from Amendola. Production directly correlates with health. If drafting Amendola as your number two option at WR, grab another decent option to back him up.
