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

 
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

Yes Peyton isn't who he once was and the offense is going to be slower and more run oriented, but he still has a great supporting cast and he's still Peyton. How surprised would you be with 250+ yards and 3 touchdowns? Not that surprised.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

The Ravens could be a problem but Manning is at home and still has plenty of weapons, so you could be in a worse spot.
