Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Nelson will be a WR1 most weeks, but he has a bad matchup against a Legion of Boom defense that allowed the fewest points to fantasy receivers. Nelson is a WR2 this week.
Maclin escaped a knee injury in the third preseason game, he has WR2 appeal playing against a Jacksonville secondary that ranked just 21st against fantasy wide receivers last year.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
As expected, Nelson was the favorite target from Aaron Rodgers in the opener garnering a staggering 14 targets, catching nine of them. As long as he's healthy, Nelson is a bonafide WR1.

GB should move Jordy around to get him different matchups. He won't dominate, but I can't see him getting shut down, either.
Maclin carries an injury risk but Jags can be torched and Philly will want to get him involved early and often.

Downgrade him because it's Seattle, but also keep in mind that Richard Sherman doesn't shadow a team's #1. Jordy will get his looks.
One of these Philly WRs will finish much higher than their ranking, but which one?
