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

Brady will be without LeGarrette Blount in this one, which means Brandon Bolden and Dion Lewis will man the backfield and both are excellent receivers and not so much goal line backs. The Steelers' secondary is competing to be the worst in the league. Brady will be hard pressed not to put up big numbers with the Steelers most likely doing the same.

- 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

Ban is gone, he has a chip on his shoulder, is at home and the Steelers defense is weak. I'm expecting a bloodbath

- 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

I've said all off-season that Brady would be the Patriots quarterback in the opener and that has finally come true. Brady is a QB1 against a Steelers secondary that has struggled in the preseason.
