Packers still aren't good enough on D and Kap is comfy at home.
Wilson can overcome any matchup, but not loving him on road against rising CAR D.

Fantasy Football Freaks
 
Tough matchup for Wilson to start the season but he always finds a way to put up solid fantasy stats each week.
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Colin is Jamie Fox from Any Given Sunday. Nobody really likes him, but they all know he can dominate the game. With the #1 Selling 2013 NFL Jersey, the controversy over the Dolphins hat, to winning an Espy for best breakthrough athlete. He knows his time is now to win that Superbowl.
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
I do not think it will be possible for Kaepernick to duplicate the masterpiece he had in the Divisional Round when the 49ers gained 579 yards of offense against the Packers and not having Michael Crabtree will hurt, but the 49ers seem to have the Packers number and I expect Kaepernick to play well.
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.

Probably won't rush for 180 yards again, but he's too talented for GB.
 
  
Raju Byfield

Should take major strides with additions of Boldin, Patton, Collie
Could easily end the season as a top five option if he is truly unleashed
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Green Bay gave up the 19th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 16.4.
Carolina gave up the 11th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 15.8.
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
He'll be missing his favorite weapon with Michael Crabtree sidelined indefinitely, but Kaep's combination of a cannon arm and insane speed make him a can't-miss fantasy prospect. It wouldn't be all that surprising to see him wind up as the highest-scoring player in fantasy this season. Then again, he doesn't have the longest body of work behind him, either.
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.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
In the Divisional playoffs last season the Packers weren't ready for Kaepernick's read option and he completely destroyed them, rushing 16 times for 181 yards and two touchdowns while also passing for 263 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. They should be more prepared for it this time, but you would have thought they would have been prepared in a playoff game as well.
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.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Like Cam Newton, we love the ability for the big runs and the rushing TDs. With the loss of Crabtree and lack of consistency at WR, we feel that Harbaugh will stick to the run game this season. Kaepernick is still a strong option at QB and I would be confident drafting him to any fantasy squad.
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.
