 Tough opening day match up but Olsen could be the main beneficiary with that tough Seahawks secondary matching up with the Panthers WR's.  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 With the Panthers' receivers in for a tough day, expect Cam to look to his TE in the middle frequently.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Pack isn't great against TE so Davis could go off as top-2 receiver for 49ers.Seattle will be focused on Steve Smith and Cam's running, so Olsen could be pretty active.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
With the loss of Michael Crabtree in San Fran, for Kaepernick to continue his run of success, he will need to utilize every weapon he has. That means that Davis’ numbers of 548 yards, 41 receptions and 5 TDs in 2012 will see a spike. SF has lined up Davis all over the place and besides Anquan Boldin, Davis will be one of the main sources of firepower for this offense. Upside … Yep.Olsen finished 2012 with 843 yards and 5 TDs. His numbers look good from the outside, but if you factor in the fact that Olsen had games in 2012 when he did absolutely nothing – it gives a clearer picture. The later you can wait on guys like Olsen and the tiers below, the better.

Big boost with Crabtree on the mend   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
He was as volatile as any player in the league last year, but with Crabtree hurt and Boldin being their only proven target in the passing game, I can't see how he disappears from their game plan this year.

Kaepernick treated Vernon Davis like a 2nd String TE when he first became the starter. Vernon never had an outstanding fantasy day as a duo, he close to waiveable. But then the playoffs happened, and Colin finally figuered out Vern is a BEAST. With Delanie Walker gone, Michael Crabtree out for the season, <nobr><a href="#" class="FAtxtL" id="FALINK_1_0_0">Frank Gore</a></nobr> a step slower. Look for Vern to continue his postseason momentum into 2013.Every season Greg Olsen disappoints. He will have his solid weeks, but he will also let you down and get less than 50 Yards Receiving in a matchup you thought was automatic. Sooner than later this duo with Cam Newton should be dominate. Off of playaction in the wildcat, I don't see how defenses are able to stop it so well
