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.

RGIII still shaky, and Texans pass D looks sick.

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.
Major struggles in the preseason with learning how to become a pocket passer and now pitted against one of the better pass defenses doesn't bold well for Griffin and the Redskins gang in Week 1.

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.
RG3 might suck in this game as the Texans have a still underrated defense, but he'll still get you fantasy numbers with every awkward slide.
