The Colts are heading towards running a 2 TE offense with a west coast scheme. At least those 2 TEs would be Top 15 options if they were on separate teams, but West Coast in todays NFL does not work in Fantasy. Rich Gannon/Donovan McNabb/Brad Johnson were probably the best West Coast QBs of the early 2000s. Those 3400 Yards 27 TDs is not good anymore in todays down field bomb offenses.
Wilson is the Marshawn Lynch killer in the Redzone. But more importantly, he keeps drives alive. Russell added a new toy of Percy Harvin to add on Sidney Rice and Golden Tate. If Wilson had to drop back and throw the ball 30 Times a game, Wilson could be a Top 5 option.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Raiders ranked just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks last year and Luck is leading one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL.
Carolina was the 10th ranked fantasy defense against quarterbacks and have looked tough in the preseason. I think this game could be one of the lower scoring games of the week and Wilson is also a QB2 in the opener, as the Hawks offense is not as good on the road as it is at home.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
With Bruce Arians gone, its unlikely that Luck will lead the league in passing attempts when throwing past the 20 yard mark. After having a year under his belt, Luck will be a more polished and efficient passer.
A lot of rankings are posting Wilson higher than he should be. Without Percy Harvin you have a 2012 Seattle offense. He has sleeper appeal, but Iím allowing others to bite in 2013. Count me out.

Luck vs. the Raiders at home, yes please.
 
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
The Colts look to have more of a West Coast offense type thing going on here with Luck's college coordinator now in the mix, which should help to limit his interception totals.
Wilson tied an NFL rookie record with 26 TD passes last season, and, with the addition of the dynamic Percy Harvin, Seattle's offense should be taking to the air more often than they did in 2012. This bodes well for DangeRuss, for sure.

Oakland could be the worst team in the league.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Oakland gave up the 7th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.5.
Carolina gave up the 11th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 15.8.

Raiders are awful so it'd be a shock if Luck was anything short of amazing at home in week 1.
Wilson can overcome any matchup, but not loving him on road against rising CAR D.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Luck missed much of his rookie year's off season work due to school and quickly had to learn a high risk/reward offense and it showed in his numbers, especially interceptions and completion percentage. Now with his old Stanford offense in place and a season under his belt we will see an even better, more efficient player. The Raiders have little in the way of defense and Luck will pick them apart. My only concern is him sitting in the 4th quarter.
Wilson had a poor game against the panthers last season, but that was early Wilson. The later in the year Wilson was a better player. The Panther pass D was strong last season and they get Jon Beason back along with rookie Star Lotulelei. So they shouldn't have much trouble up front, but they can be beat in the secondary with Chris Gamble gone. Wilson can get it done through the air and ground so he's hard to bench.

Should be a QB1 for the next decade
Could easily end the season as a top five option if he is truly unleashed

Fantasy Football Freaks
Luck looks to have a pretty tough schedule as of now with Oakland being the only opponent ranking in the bottom 10 against QB's.
Tough matchup for Wilson to start the season but he always finds a way to put up solid fantasy stats each week.
