Bradford has one of the best matchups of the week and has looked great in preseason. Of course that could all come tumbling down on his head at some point, but there's no real reason not to rank him in the Top-10 this week.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Houston on the road is a problem, while Smith in general just isn't a guy to tie your week to on a regular basis.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

The Falcons could improve on D this year but it won't happen by week one. Bradford could get hurt on his first play, but if he sticks around he could pay off in a shootout.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
It isn't about talent or the offense with Bradford, and he's healthy for Week 1 with a cake matchup.

- Jon Collins, Fantasy Sports LR

 
Bradford will be my signal caller on all cash lineups week 1. The pricing is too good to pass up.

- Sean Beazley, EDSFootball

 
Bradford has looked good in the preseason and the Falcons ranked 24th against fantasy quarterbacks. I can't see him staying healthy the whole season, but he has QB1 upside in this matchup.
