The 49ers have enough missing pieces from last year's team that Murray could have a big game against them in the opener.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Vereen is going to be the Pierre Thomas of this offense and with Tom Brady liking to throw the ball a lot, Vereen has a ton of upside as a pass catcher in this offense.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The SF front won't be as daunting without Bowman in the middle, Aldon Smith gone, and Glenn Dorsey also out. Fire up Murray as a top-10 option.

Reading how this backfield will shake out has been tough, but Vereen vs. and uninspiring LB corps in Miami should do positive things for your fantasy team.

PPR league owners have to start Vereen this week.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

Niners are absent some key bodies and Murray should see the ball a ton at home. He should be better than some may think this week.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Health has always been the question mark. Vereen should be heavily involved but prob has more value in PPR leagues.
