 After a tantalizing preseason it's time to see what Vick can do in Chip Kelly's offense. Against the Redskins who struggled vs. pass last year, and who he has had a lot of success against in an Eagles uniform.  
Staff Rankings
Fantasy Football Freaks
Tough matchup for Wilson to start the season but he always finds a way to put up solid fantasy stats each week.He missed both 'skins games in 2012, but he averaged 2 TDs, 280 passing and 28 rushing yards against them in '11.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Wilson had a poor game against the panthers last season, but that was early Wilson. The later in the year Wilson was a better player. The Panther pass D was strong last season and they get Jon Beason back along with rookie Star Lotulelei. So they shouldn't have much trouble up front, but they can be beat in the secondary with Chris Gamble gone. Wilson can get it done through the air and ground so he's hard to bench.The new look Eagles under Chip Kelly looked sharp in preseason and Michael Vick seemed comfortable in their offense totaling 454 yards and two touchdowns in around 4 quarters of game time. I'll be starting him this week even though he's always a risk to get hurt and this offense has yet to be tested in a real game. I believe his upside outweighs the risk. It doesn't hurt that Washington gave up the third most passing yards and fifth most fantasy points to quarterbacks last season.

 This is possibly way too low. Tempering expectations until we see the Chip offense in action.  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
Carolina gave up the 11th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 15.8.Washington gave up the 8th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.4.

Wilson is the Marshawn Lynch killer in the Redzone. But more importantly, he keeps drives alive. Russell added a new toy of Percy Harvin to add on Sidney Rice and Golden Tate. If Wilson had to drop back and throw the ball 30 Times a game, Wilson could be a Top 5 option.If one player has a lot to prove this season, Michael Vick is that man. The Eagles are coming off of so much disappointment that they lost their Franchise coach. The offense is the same offense the Oregon Ducks ran, which is perfect for dual threat QBs. If you had to make an all-time list of the best dual threat QBs of our time, Vick has to be #1 if you take out the mental mistakes. Jeremy Maclin and Desean Jackson still make up an ELITE WR duo.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Carolina was the 10th ranked fantasy defense against quarterbacks and have looked tough in the preseason. I think this game could be one of the lower scoring games of the week and Wilson is also a QB2 in the opener, as the Hawks offense is not as good on the road as it is at home.The Redskins allowed the 4th most fantasy points to running backs last year, I expect the MNF game to be a shootout and for Vick to be a borderline QB1.  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Could easily end the season as a top five option if he is truly unleashedImpossible to rank Vick as anything less than a QB1 despite injury risk. Chip Kelly's offense could help this Eagle soar to new heights.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Wilson can overcome any matchup, but not loving him on road against rising CAR D.I think Vick is in for a big year, but will it start on the road against an underrated Redskins defense?  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Wilson tied an NFL rookie record with 26 TD passes last season, and, with the addition of the dynamic Percy Harvin, Seattle's offense should be taking to the air more often than they did in 2012. This bodes well for DangeRuss, for sure.Vick is the biggest wild card of them all. If he buys into Chip Kelly's system and grasps it well from the start, he's capable of being the No. 1 player in fantasy, as we've seen before. On the other hand, he may underwhelm from the start and not even be Philly's QB on opening day. There really isn't much middle ground with this guy.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
A lot of rankings are posting Wilson higher than he should be. Without Percy Harvin you have a 2012 Seattle offense. He has sleeper appeal, but Iím allowing others to bite in 2013. Count me out.
