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.

The Chargers were a respectable 13th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, Stafford has low QB1 upside because he plays with WR Calvin Johnson and WR Golden Tate.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

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.

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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

I like Stafford this year and though he usually stinks on the road, the Bolts don't have a ton of defensive bite so a top 15 finish is in the cards
