Brees is off to an impressive start by mere mortal standards, but a disappointing one by his standards, as he's thrown for 647 yards and three touchdowns without turning the ball over in his first two contests. He now gets a Carolina defense that he knows well, and against which he threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns last season in the teams' matchup in Carolina. It's difficult to gauge the Panthers defense, as they've played the offensively-challenged 49ers and Bills so far, so we shouldn't read much into the fact that they have yet to allow a touchdown pass yet. But on the road in a divisional game, it's unlikely that this will be on of Brees' best efforts. He's still an obvious start, but expectations should be tempered. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 It's the rare scenario where the Colts should be in this game, despite not having Andrew Luck under center. Gore won't go for 100-plus yards on the ground or anything, but there were just four times last year where the Browns didn't allow a rushing touchdown. It's hard to bet on Gore as anything more than a low-end RB2, but this isn't a bad week to use him.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Carolina has the best defense against fantasy quarterbacks this year, but that ranking is a little hollow with the QBs being Brian Hoyer and Tyrod Taylor. Brees should still be a QB1 this week.The Browns struggled to stop the run last week, but the Colts offense is a mess without QB Andrew Luck, so Gore is a risky flex option without Luck behind center.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Brees on the road against one of the toughest defenses in the league is not the best, but it's still Brees and a what will be a pass-heavy attack.
