GB defense is a tad better but Wilson has looked sharp and is at home. I like him to be a top-15 guy to start the year.
AZ has Patrick Peterson but will be without Daryl Washington, Darnell Dockett and possibly Tyrann Mathieu. All good news for Rivers and the Bolts.
  
Derek Lofland

I think Wilson is primed for a big season. The Packers were 24th against fantasy quarterbacks last season and struggle against mobile quarterbacks. I think Wilson has a fast start to the season.
Arizona was impossible to move the ball against on the ground last year, Rivers is going to have to throw the ball against a Cardinals D that was only 21st against fantasy quarterbacks last year.
