Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Epic shootout potentially plus no Welker means a big day for DT.
Not loving the Patrick Peterson matchup, but Allen certainly carries some upside if targeted enough.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Indy is not going to be able to generate a pass rush against the Denver Broncos, which is great news for Thomas owners.
Allen is going to have a tough opener going against Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, but he sees enough targets to maintain WR3 value.

He should see plenty of Patrick Peterson in this one. Temper expectations.
