Buffalo has had turnover at safety and inside linebacker. I think Cutler and co. make them look bad in week one at home.
Miami's D is underrated but Brady has a healthy cast around him again so he should be a top-10 option.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cutler has a ton of offensive weapons, but the Bills have one of the best pass rushes in the NFL. It will be a good test for Cutler to see if he is ready to have a breakout season.
Miami was 7th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, but Tom Brady tore up the Panthers pass defense in the third game of preseason and looks as sharp as ever.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
 
With a full round of WR's and with Gronk he should perform well this week.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
The Bills were one of the better pass defenses in the NFL last year but Chicago has one of the best offensive groups in the league. While Cutler probably won't dominate he should at least play as a QB1 in deeper, 12-team leagues.
Don't worry about the Q next to his name. It doesn't stand for Questionable. This week it stands for "Quick." That is how fast and often that he will be moving the ball in Week 1 against the Dolphins (as long as his counterpart TE Gronkowski is in the lineup.
