NO defense is pretty solid but Matty Ice has all his guys healthy at home. This should be a classic shootout.

- 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.

The Saints are known for their top-notch offensive schemes which overshadows their defensive backfield. It doesn't escape us though at FFLockerRoom. While Ryan does have White and Jones back at full-force, they will have their work cut out for them to put up big passing numbers.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

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.

The Saints and Falcons tend to be high scoring games, but keep in mind that the Saints allowed the third fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks last year.

- Derek Lofland, 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.
