Anquan Boldin seems to relish the BIG game and this game against the Cowboys for week one is just that. For some reason, I expect Boldin to show up and have one of his better games of the year.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

As expected, Nelson was the favorite target from Aaron Rodgers in the opener garnering a staggering 14 targets, catching nine of them. As long as he's healthy, Nelson is a bonafide WR1.

Not afraid at all to fire up Boldin in this matchup. He and Crabtree will have their way w/ Dallas' secondary.

Downgrade him because it's Seattle, but also keep in mind that Richard Sherman doesn't shadow a team's #1. Jordy will get his looks.

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

Boldin has WR3 appeal going against a terrible Dallas secondary.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Nelson will be a WR1 most weeks, but he has a bad matchup against a Legion of Boom defense that allowed the fewest points to fantasy receivers. Nelson is a WR2 this week.

GB should move Jordy around to get him different matchups. He won't dominate, but I can't see him getting shut down, either.
