I think the Eagles secondary is one of the worst in the league and I think Garcon is going to show why on Monday Night. They gave up a league high 23 touchdowns to fantasy receivers last year.
Nelson should be fine coming off his knee procedure, but the 49ers were 4th against fantasy receivers, so I look for Nelson to not be a superstar in the opener.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
There is some worry that Washington will limit Robert Griffin's work, but the Eagles pass defense is so poor I think Garcon has an easy time of it even if he doesn't have a ton of targets.
Nelson is back from minor surgery and ready to go. I like all three of the Packers receivers this week because Aaron Rodgers is just that good. Yes, the 49ers are tough, but they aren't going to shut down Rodgers who threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns against them in week 1 last season. The problem is it can be difficult to predict who will get the most points for the receivers so you just have to start them all.

Garcon turned it on when he finally came back healthy, he's my pick to grab a round earlier.
If you can land Nelson as a 3rd receiver in a standard league or a low-end No. 2 WR in a deeper formats, you're ahead of the game. Nelson should be viewed no more then a No.2 Fantasy WR worth drafting at the end of Round 5 and into Round 6, any later and Nelson is a great steal.
  
Muntradamus

Garcon who looked to be the steal of the draft after his Huge Week 1, was never the same WR after the Toe injury. He is still not 100% confident in the injury, the Redskins signed Donte Stallworth and Devery Henderson. To go along with Santana Moss and Joshua Morgan. Fred Davis is also coming back. All of this adds up to a little bit too much inconsistency for 2013.
Jordy could be ready for a breakout year with no Greg Jennings. If Jordy does not get double teamed, Aaron Rodgers will take his shots on Nelson often. The knock on Jordy is all the talent that surrounds him, but at the end of the day. We can easily see Nelson leading the Packers WR core.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Garcon has yet to break the 1,000 yard mark in his 5 seasons in the NFL. His injuries have stabilized. Look for Garcon to flirt with a 1,000 yard season in 2013, should he remain healthy.
Itís hard to rank Nelson until we see how long heíll be out. He just had surgery to fix a nerve in his knee.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Philly D is shaky so Garcon could easily hit on some big plays.
Nelson is flying under the radar a bit, so I like him as a sneaky elite play this week.
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
 
Not too worried about Nelson being sidelined for the preseason with a knee procedure. He'll be ready for opening day.
