Did you say SJAX vs the Saints... yes please!
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Falcons will be an equal opportunity destroyer of the Saints Defense. They will put up big numbers in the passing game, but they will also make sure they run the ball enough to put up big numbers there as well.
I like Miller this week facing a Browns D that was just 21st against fantasy backs last year, I think he will start the season off with a good game.
  
Kevin Roberts

NO defense is atrocious so -Jax could be a great play in week 1.
Browns D is rising and his exact role is still unclear. He still has great upside to get things rolling, though.
  
Taylor Smith

Now that he's out from behind the awful St. Louis O-line, Jackson might actually start scoring touchdowns. He'll have plenty of opportunities in the red zone with the Falcons, and he could be in for a bit of a fantasy renaissance.
The Dolphins love this guy, and he has everything you'd want out of a lead back: size, speed, quickness. He's just unproven.

Jackson will see more end-zone exposure now that he’s in Atlanta. Although Jackson possesses the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, we aren’t expecting that to be Atlanta’s bread and butter - due to their RB/WR weapon of Jacquizz Rodgers. Look for double-digit TDs and around 1,250 yards from Jackson in 2013.
Miami faces Buffalo twice, the Jets twice, the Colts and Saints – 6 games against teams finishing in the bottom 5 of rush defense last season. With an improved offense, Miller should have a strong second season in the NFL.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Unless all of the running backs from the team facing the Saints have been brutally murdered in a pregame squabble with Whodatters then you start one of them.
Miller's value was a little squashed this preseason by the Daniel Thomas hype from the Dolphins, but it was more of a motivational ploy to keep Miller sharp than anything. He is the undisputed starter and a talented one at that. Last season the Browns ranked 23rd in rushing yards allowed and 26th in receptions allowed to running backs. Of course Daniel Thomas still may get a series or two, stupidly.

Redzone opportunities are exactly what Steven Jackson owners will not be lacking. S-Jax moves to a high scoring, high flying Falcons offense that is ready to make a run for the Superbowl. Jackson will have 6 men at the box to defend the pass, which will lead to a Huge holes for the BRICK HOUSE RB. The Falcons plan to throw to S-Jax plenty this season as well. Lot's to be excited about, Jackson still has gas in the tank showing off with 146 Total Yards and 7 Receptions in his Rams Home Fi...
While everyone is jumping on the Lamar Miller bandwagon, you have to be semi-cautious about Daniel Thomas as of now. Daniel Thomas as a rookie showed a couple BEASTLY performances in 2011. He looked like such a Fantasy stud, owners were starting to use him as a RB#2 consistently. D-Thomas is not going away quietly, which will put the pressure on Miller to perform every week.
