I know its the Seahawks but Rodgers is fairly matchup proof and this is a huge game to start the year. He'll be fine.
AZ has Patrick Peterson but will be without Daryl Washington, Darnell Dockett and possibly Tyrann Mathieu. All good news for Rivers and the Bolts.

Rodgers is going to have a monster season, but he plays at Seattle to open the season. The Seahawks allowed the fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks last year and look as tough as ever.
Arizona was impossible to move the ball against on the ground last year, Rivers is going to have to throw the ball against a Cardinals D that was only 21st against fantasy quarterbacks last year.
  
David Gonos

Possibly lowest Rodgers gets ranked all season.

You should always start your studs, especially in Week 1. But the Seahawks pass defense is beyond stellar. If there was a week to consider using your QB2 against a good match up, this would be one of them.
