Wilson plays a Dallas D that allowed the 5th most points to fantasy backs. RB Andre Brown fracturing his leg means that Wilson will be a true every down back this season.
I like Miller this week facing a Browns D that was just 21st against fantasy backs last year, I think he will start the season off with a good game.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Wilson is one of the more explosive running backs in the league and will get the bulk of the carries.
Miller's value was a little squashed this preseason by the Daniel Thomas hype from the Dolphins, but it was more of a motivational ploy to keep Miller sharp than anything. He is the undisputed starter and a talented one at that. Last season the Browns ranked 23rd in rushing yards allowed and 26th in receptions allowed to running backs. Of course Daniel Thomas still may get a series or two, stupidly.

Legion Report
Wilson exploded onto the scene in the later half of the 2012 season. Wilson and Brown are currently slotted as co-starting running backs whatever that means. That being said, we expect Wilson to see the bulk of the carries with Brown receiving the majority of goal-line attention (Brown 8 TDs in 10 Games: 2012). Wilson is also still returning kick for the Giants, which may come to an end should he run away with the job.
Miami faces Buffalo twice, the Jets twice, the Colts and Saints 6 games against teams finishing in the bottom 5 of rush defense last season. With an improved offense, Miller should have a strong second season in the NFL.

Fantasy Football Freaks
Finished 2012 strong with 247 yards and 3 TDs in his last 4 games. With Andre Brown out, he's a good play vs the Cowboys 28th ranked run D.
He's getting the start against a below average Browns run defense. If he can start strong, he'll be rewarded with 3 great matchups in a row.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Dude is primed for an insane 2013. Why not get it started in week 1?
Browns D is rising and his exact role is still unclear. He still has great upside to get things rolling, though.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Andre Brown looks to make it a 60/40 time-share and is goal-line and passing down back
Pegged to be the starter ahead of Thomas
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Ahmad Bradshaw is gone, so the job is Wilson's if he can hold onto it. Holding on to the football may also be important, as he found himself in Tom Coughlin's doghouse last season due to fumbling issues.
The Dolphins love this guy, and he has everything you'd want out of a lead back: size, speed, quickness. He's just unproven.
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Without Andre Brown for the first month and a half to help handle the load, it will be interesting to see if Wilson can truly handle the spotlight.

my post via FantasyPros Overvalued Players.....David Wilson is lightning in a bottle. While that translates to some blowout wins in your fantasy league, it can also cause heartbreak. There are a few red flags on Wilson. 1. The Giants will be a pass 1st/pass 2nd/pass 3rd offense. 2. Andre Brown is supposed to be splitting the carries 50/50. 3. Andre Brown will be the TD Vulture at the goal line. 4. David Wilson is prone to being in the coaches dog house. Fumbles/Mistakes. All of this adds...
While everyone is jumping on the Lamar Miller bandwagon, you have to be semi-cautious about Daniel Thomas as of now. Daniel Thomas as a rookie showed a couple BEASTLY performances in 2011. He looked like such a Fantasy stud, owners were starting to use him as a RB#2 consistently. D-Thomas is not going away quietly, which will put the pressure on Miller to perform every week.
