The Kansas City Chiefs were 15th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, but they are not going to be able to slow down this Patriots passing game in New England.San Francisco was 20th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, but Newton is coming off a shoulder surgery and the 49ers have added some pieces on D. Newton is a low-end QB1 in Week 1.
