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.

- 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.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
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.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

Maclin carries an injury risk but Jags can be torched and Philly will want to get him involved early and often.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

GB should move Jordy around to get him different matchups. He won't dominate, but I can't see him getting shut down, either.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

One of these Philly WRs will finish much higher than their ranking, but which one?

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

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.
