The 49ers have enough missing pieces from last year's team that Murray could have a big game against them in the opener.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

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.

As expected, Lynch was fresh going into the opener. He dominated from the beginning rushing for 110 and 2 TDs. He also caught one pass late in the game for 14 yards.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

The SF front won't be as daunting without Bowman in the middle, Aldon Smith gone, and Glenn Dorsey also out. Fire up Murray as a top-10 option.

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

With Seattle projected as 5.5 point favorites, Lynch should see plenty of carries against this mediocre front 7.

Niners are absent some key bodies and Murray should see the ball a ton at home. He should be better than some may think this week.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Packers defense has yet to prove a thing, so hard to hate Lynch at home with this soft matchup.
