He will find the end-zone for sure in Week 1.

I like Fitzgerald in the opener, the Chargers defense is improved over last year, but they gave up the fourth most fantasy points to fantasy receivers last year.

Brandon Flowers and/or Shareece Wright will have a heck of a time trying to stay with Fitzgerald. Fitz moves all over the field, but even if they stick the smaller Flowers on him he should have a field day in the redzone.

Bolts were awful against pass in 2013 so I like Fitzgerald in week 1. Monitor light injury issue, though.
Interesting to see how he does in Lions debut. Could thrive if Giants focus on Megatron too much.
