Jags D improved, but so is Eagles O.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Foles should open strong at home against a Jacksonville team that allowed the third most points to fantasy quarterbacks last year.
Miami was 7th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, but Tom Brady tore up the Panthers pass defense in the third game of preseason and looks as sharp as ever.
  
Tom Schriner

Don't worry about the Q next to his name. It doesn't stand for Questionable. This week it stands for "Quick." That is how fast and often that he will be moving the ball in Week 1 against the Dolphins (as long as his counterpart TE Gronkowski is in the lineup.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Hopefully Nick Foles comes out slinging against the Jaguars; you have to love QB's when the play against Jax.
With a full round of WR's and with Gronk he should perform well this week.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jax D is vastly underrated so Philly could have a fight on their hands. Foles should be good enough for borderline top-10 numbers, though.
Miami's D is underrated but Brady has a healthy cast around him again so he should be a top-10 option.
