The Packers were just 26th against fantasy running backs and the loss of DT B. J. Raji is a big blow to their run defense. I think Lynch kicks off the season with RB1 numbers.
The Raiders spent a lot of money to upgrade a defense that allowed the fifth most points to fantasy running backs, but I think Johnson has big game upside in the season opener.
