The tale goes, once you experience Tom Brady, you can't go back. With no Aaron Hernandez or Wes Welker, Tom is no longer the #1 QB we always expect. Amendola/Gronk/Edelman still make up a solid WR crew. But let's be real, if Tony Romo was the QB of this squad it would be impossible to put him Top 5. Brady can get it done with any group, just may be a little harder to get those monster numbers.   
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Brady owned the Bills last season averaging 288 yards and 2.5 touchdowns in their two matchups. For his career he has thrown 51 touchdowns against them in 22 games. He's also faced the Dolphins and Jets 22 times each and has thrown 38 and 31 touchdowns against them. I think he may like playing the Bills.He gets the start against the Colts who aren't exactly the top defense in the league and didn't make enough moves to move up into that realm. Their more methodical offense should allow their defense to stay rested which should help, but they can be rushed against and that what Pryor will do best. His ceiling is high with his 4.38 speed, but his floor is low with his decision making. He will throw interceptions, but also will rush for a decent amount of yards and probably see some garbage tim...  
Staff Rankings
Fantasy Football Freaks
The receiving corp has been shaken up, but expect Brady to remain the same, especially against the Bills - 26th against QB last year.

 Ranked here solely due to extra value rushing yards will accrue

No one has ever owned one team more than Brady has Buffalo.   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
With Gronk's injury situation, as well as the respective departures of Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker, some are expecting Tom Brady's fantasy output to take a hit. While that may be the case to an extent, you'd be crazy to think he'll suddenly drop-off too suddenly.Pryor can run, but that's pretty much all he can do.

Brady is ready to make another core of WR look like All-Pros.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Bills are without top corner and Brady is a man on a mission. I expect a huge game.Pryor could surprise here with a nice matchup.  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
I look for New England to establish the run and as great as Tom Brady is, I think that he emphasis will be on the run and not the pass this week. Buffalo gave up the 6th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.6.Indianapolis gave up the 20th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 16.4.  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Sure, the faces have changed but Brady is still an epic field general, and, Buffalo was 7th most generous to opposing QBs in '12. They come into this one sans-Gilmore and with Byrd ailing.   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bills will be without their best corner (Stephon Gillmore) and Brady had 577 yards passing with 5 passing touchdowns and no picks against the Bills in 2 games last year. He is a solid QB1, especially with the Bills likely to start rookie UDFA QB Jeff Tuel. The Patriots figure to have good field position and plenty of scoring chances most of the day.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
This is pretty obvious. Brady lost Hernandez, Gronk and Lloyd, but made the addition of injury prone WR Danny Amendola (man has he burnt me in multiple fantasy seasons). I expect Ridley to be the real fantasy option on this team, but hey you never know it is Tom Brady. QB is deep enough this season to not pay top price on Brady as there are plenty of options available.
