Tough matchup for Wilson to start the season but he always finds a way to put up solid fantasy stats each week.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
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 Im allowing others to bite in 2013. Count me out.The tier from Cutler on down to Flacco should state You get what you get.  
Raju Byfield

Could easily end the season as a top five option if he is truly unleashedBernard is the weapon Dalton needs to take next step  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
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.Dalton still has A.J. Green, and the Bengals are hoping the tight end duo of Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert will add some versatility to the passing game. But he can't really throw the ball downfield very effectively, and is pretty average overall.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Wilson can overcome any matchup, but not loving him on road against rising CAR D.I don't like this matchup on the road at all for the weak-armed Dalton.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
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.Dalton is similar to Matt Stafford by only having 1 WR. But the difference between Stafford and Dalton is Stafford can fling the ball anywhere. Dalton is a West Coast offense QB with an arm that is geared for only 1 WR. Andy is a 3,500 Yard QB with 25 TDs at the very best.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
