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.
Torrey has a lot of upside with the Ravens in 2013. With Dennis Pitta out for the season, Torrey will be a target machine. Somehow, someway, Flacco has to throw for over 250 Yards a game. Torrey is the only capable player of getting numbers outside of Ray Rice.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
Smith had 3 receptions for 98 yards and 2 touchdowns as he exposed Champ Bailey in the playoffs last year and he probably will not play against the Ravens, as he just ditched his walking boot. Smith has WR2 appeal in this early season matchup.
  
Kevin Roberts

Buffalo is without their top corner so Amendola could have a rocking debut.
All depends on Champ Bailey's status.

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

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.
Smith has a ton of expectations as he enters his 3rd-Year with the Ravens. He has produced similar production each of the last 2 years as he has produced roughly 50 receptions for 850 yards with 7 touchdowns as a rookie and 8 touchdowns last year. If you play it safe, you could be looking at Smith as a No.3 Fantasy WR in Round 7 but no sooner.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
The season opener is a rematch of last year’s AFC Divisional Playoff game in which the Ravens won a thriller in overtime at Mile High. In that matchup the Ravens pounded the ball on the ground 35 times for 144 yards, which set up Torrey Smith deep against Champ Bailey. And it worked well with Smith catching two touchdowns, one for 59 yards and the other for 32 yards. And this time around the Broncos will be without Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil, the first who is suspended and the second who...

Solid WR2 potential in a depleted vertical attack for the Patriots.
Value gets bump with Pitta out for the year but catch percentage must improve
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
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.
Baltimore WR’s, What Baltimore WR’s? Torrey Smith is the only WR left in Baltimore. Deep threat Torrey Smith is set up to have a huge year in this Ravens Offense. This season will be Smith’s 3rd season in the NFL, the year WRs typically break out. He will also be their new Number 1 WR.
