Tom Brady will get his numbers. 4,000 Yards is automatic, and Danny Amendola is more than capable of being the #1 Option. While Gronk is the #1 option, Amendola will be an amazing #2 in the passing game for Brady. Danny was able to get numbers being the only WR in a Sam Bradford offense, he will definitely get numbers as the sometimes goto option for Brady.
Jordy could be ready for a breakout year with no Greg Jennings. If Jordy does not get double teamed, Aaron Rodgers will take his shots on Nelson often. The knock on Jordy is all the talent that surrounds him, but at the end of the day. We can easily see Nelson leading the Packers WR core.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Buffalo is without their top corner so Amendola could have a rocking debut.
Nelson is flying under the radar a bit, so I like him as a sneaky elite play this week.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
His possible groin injury is worrisome, but I truly doubt he'll play against a Buffalo team the Patriots should have an easy time with if he's not going to play fully. He is the #1 target for Brady and I should be the top point getter with Gronkowski out.
Nelson is back from minor surgery and ready to go. I like all three of the Packers receivers this week because Aaron Rodgers is just that good. Yes, the 49ers are tough, but they aren't going to shut down Rodgers who threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns against them in week 1 last season. The problem is it can be difficult to predict who will get the most points for the receivers so you just have to start them all.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bills were 14th against fantasy receivers last year, but that was with CB Stephon Gilmore in the lineup. They are going to have no answers for Amendola in the opener.
Nelson should be fine coming off his knee procedure, but the 49ers were 4th against fantasy receivers, so I look for Nelson to not be a superstar in the opener.
  
Staff Rankings

Danny is a high-volume receiver with 153 receptions in his past 28 games. Consider Amendola a low-end No.2/high-end No.3 WR in standard leagues that could approach 100 receptions as Welker's replacement if he can stay healthy, making him a potential No.2 in PPR formats. Look for Amendola to be drafted in Round 5 in the majority of all leagues.
If you can land Nelson as a 3rd receiver in a standard league or a low-end No. 2 WR in a deeper formats, you're ahead of the game. Nelson should be viewed no more then a No.2 Fantasy WR worth drafting at the end of Round 5 and into Round 6, any later and Nelson is a great steal.
  
Taylor Smith

Not too worried about Nelson being sidelined for the preseason with a knee procedure. He'll be ready for opening day.

Plagued with injuries every year, if Amendola can stay healthy in 2013 envision a Wes Welker type season from Amendola. Production directly correlates with health. If drafting Amendola as your number two option at WR, grab another decent option to back him up.
Its hard to rank Nelson until we see how long hell be out. He just had surgery to fix a nerve in his knee.
