I don't have a ton of faith in the New England secondary and the Steelers have a ton of weapons in the passing game. They will also be without RB Le'Veon Bell, which means they should be throwing the ball a ton in this game.

- 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.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The Patriots are without Darrelle Revis and the Steelers will need to throw the ball a ton without Le'Veon Bell and a good defense to keep the score low.

- 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

I don't love using guys on TNF games ever and Big Ben is without a key target, RB and o-lineman.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

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