I don't think Luck piles up the stats in this one like he will in most of his games, but his consistency last season is the reason you drafted him so high and the reason I'm not too worried even with the tough matchup.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Newton will need to use his legs more than last season, which should keep his floor pretty high. I'm not expecting huge passing numbers though.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Luck could get stifled here on the road against a great defense, but Luck isn't held in check very often

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

A road date with the Jags isn't what it was two years ago, while Cam no longer has Kelvin.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

If you own Luck in fantasy leagues, you almost have to play him regardless of matchup. I would stay clear in Daily Fantasy Leagues, the Bills allowed the 3rd fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks last year. There will be cheaper quarterbacks with much better matchups.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Newton will be hurt by the loss of WR Kelvin Benjamin, but the Jaguars were just 17th against fantasy quarterbacks last year and he should be able to provide QB2 value.
