For the first time since 2007, Tom Brady will not be throwing passes to Wes Welker. How will this impact his fantasy value? That is yet to be seen, but Danny Amendola SHOULD be able to minimize the damage. However, Aaron Hernandez will not be playing football this season and most likely ever again and Rob Gronkowski will not be available until at least week 7. That is where Brady will be hurt the most. Brady's remaining targets are Michael Jenkins (new to the offense), Julian Edelman, Aaron Dobson (rookie) and Jake Ballard. Not the most enticing receivers. The Patriots backfield might have more value then receivers this season.Carson Palmer is throwing passes for the Cardinals this season, and has Larry Fitzgerald running routes for him. He hasn't had a receiver of this quality since Chad Johnson from the 2006-07 seasons. Palmer also gets Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts to toss the pigskin too. This is a huge upgrde from the Raiders receivers. Palmer is going to throw interceptions, but chances are Palmer will be one of the most added QBs via waiver wire moves this fantasy football season.Be very careful with Michael Vick because Nick Foles and Matt Barkley are just waiting to get a shot!It is possible that the AFC East has two rookie QBs take over their teams starting gigs by as early as the Bills (12) and Jets (10) bye weeks. Geno Smith could take over much earlier than that but E.J. Manuel will have to give Kevin Kolb the ability to beat himself before being handed the reins.Other notable QBs wearing a new helmet this season: Alex Smith - Kansas City ChiefsMatt Flynn - Buffalo Bills* - New Team** - Rookie*** - Sleeper1.) Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers2.) Drew Brees - New Orleans Saints3.) Cam Newton - Carolina Panthers4.) Peyton Manning - Denver Broncos5.) Tom Brady - New England Patriots6.) Matt Ryan - Atlanta FalconsSee Harrison's Atlanta Falcons Fantasy Football preview 7.) Colin Kaepernick - San Francisco 49ers8.) Russell Wilson - Seattle Seahawks9.) Andrew Luck - Indianapolis Colts10.) Matthew Stafford - Detroit Lions11.) Robert Griffin III - Washington RedskinsIt will be VERY interesting to see if RGIII can and will move around in the pocket and scramble for those 815 yards and 7 TDs again. Griffin was 22nd in the league in passing yards, so if he isn't scrambling for yards and TDs, how impactful can he be? Be very careful when considering drafting the Redskins QB! - @WeTlkFntsySprts12.) Tony Romo - Dallas Cowboys13.) Eli Manning - New York Giants14.) Ben Roethlisberger - Pittsburgh Steelers15.) Andy Dalton - Cincinnati Bengals16.) Joe Flacco - Baltimore Ravens17.) Sam Bradford - St. Louis Rams18.) Jay Cutler - Chicago Bears19.) Michael Vick - Philadelphia Eagles20.)
