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

Texans pass D is solid and RG3 is shaky, plus added weapons. Garcon should still get his, though.

- 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.

The Houston Texans were eighth against fantasy receivers last year, but Garcon is targeted enough that he should maintain WR2 value.

- 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.

Against Houston's ferocious front, Garcon should be the favored target. But neither he nor Jackson are overwhelmingly impressive options with Griffin struggling to get comfortable in the pocket.

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.
