Brady owned the Bills last season averaging 288 yards and 2.5 touchdowns in their two matchups. For his career he has thrown 51 touchdowns against them in 22 games. He's also faced the Dolphins and Jets 22 times each and has thrown 38 and 31 touchdowns against them. I think he may like playing the Bills.
New up tempo offense should increase his attempts and numbers. But he does have a tough test week one against one of the top defenses in the league. The Bengals were second in sacks and sixth best in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. This will be a great time to see just how good Cutler can be this year, but i don't think I want him starting on my team in week 1.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
This is pretty obvious. Brady lost Hernandez, Gronk and Lloyd, but made the addition of injury prone WR Danny Amendola (man has he burnt me in multiple fantasy seasons). I expect Ridley to be the real fantasy option on this team, but hey you never know it is Tom Brady. QB is deep enough this season to not pay top price on Brady as there are plenty of options available.
Cutler has fantasy backup written all over him. If youve ever seen a Chicago game or even highlights, explaining further is unnecessary. Im not confident that they have fixed the offensive line or the interception rate of Cutler. His inconsistency worries me and should not be in lineups gunning for championships.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
I look for New England to establish the run and as great as Tom Brady is, I think that he emphasis will be on the run and not the pass this week. Buffalo gave up the 6th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.6.
BENCH - Cincinnati gave up the 6th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 13.5.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Bills are without top corner and Brady is a man on a mission. I expect a huge game.
Cutler could combust into flames here, but he is at home and new offense could see him thrive.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bills will be without their best corner (Stephon Gillmore) and Brady had 577 yards passing with 5 passing touchdowns and no picks against the Bills in 2 games last year. He is a solid QB1, especially with the Bills likely to start rookie UDFA QB Jeff Tuel. The Patriots figure to have good field position and plenty of scoring chances most of the day.
 
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
With Gronk's injury situation, as well as the respective departures of Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker, some are expecting Tom Brady's fantasy output to take a hit. While that may be the case to an extent, you'd be crazy to think he'll suddenly drop-off too suddenly.
New head coach Marc Trestman has a history of fixing quarterbacks. Unfortunately, it's the offensive line for the Bears that needs fixing. Cutler has a tremendous rapport with Brandon Marshall, and Alshon Jeffery is a promising talent. But if Cutler is having to run for his life behind that shaky O-line all year long, he'll have a hard time being consistently relevant in fantasy.

No one has ever owned one team more than Brady has Buffalo.

Qb1 upside but will likely be no better than a QB2 most weeks despite improvement from Alshon Jeffery
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Sure, the faces have changed but Brady is still an epic field general, and, Buffalo was 7th most generous to opposing QBs in '12. They come into this one sans-Gilmore and with Byrd ailing.

Brady is ready to make another core of WR look like All-Pros.
 
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
The tale goes, once you experience Tom Brady, you can't go back. With no Aaron Hernandez or Wes Welker, Tom is no longer the #1 QB we always expect. Amendola/Gronk/Edelman still make up a solid WR crew. But let's be real, if Tony Romo was the QB of this squad it would be impossible to put him Top 5. Brady can get it done with any group, just may be a little harder to get those monster numbers.
Cutler and Brandon Marshall is a dream connection. Cutler throws a great deep ball, Marshall loves to go up and get it. The Bears added Martellus Bennett who gives Cutler a great secondary Redzone option.

The receiving corp has been shaken up, but expect Brady to remain the same, especially against the Bills - 26th against QB last year.
