Fantasy Football Maniax
The Giants were 14th against fantasy quarterbacks, but they revamped their defense and I have my doubts they can matchup with all of the Lions new offensive weapons.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Giants did improve on defense over the offseason but Stafford has weapons for days. Hard to see him stinking up the joint on MNF.
I rarely back Flacco, and I'm not going to start in an ugly divisional showdown against a tough Bengals defense.
  
Tom Schriner

Prime-time game Monday night, Stafford faces the Giants who fared very well against the pass last season. Still a rock solid QB1 option in Week 1.
