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.
Welker is going to be a nice addition to the Broncos offense and I think Manning will try to involve him early and often against the Ravens revamped defense.

Still a Welker fan, but numbers destined to dwindle
  
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.
Ladarius Webb may work the slot and cover Welker for a good portion of this game. With Thomas and Decker as other options Manning won't force the subject.

Garcon turned it on when he finally came back healthy, he's my pick to grab a round earlier.
Welker is the only receiver in NFL history to produce 5 seasons with at least 100-plus receptions. He remains a No. 2 Fantasy WR in all leagues, but he's no longer the No.1 option anymore in his new passing attack. Welker should be drafted in Round 4 in standard leagues and Round 3 in PPR formats.
  
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.
Like I said about Thomas, Peyton Manning will be setting records in 2013, which means his WRs will have BEAST like numbers. While Thomas goes deep, Decker does his curls/slants, Welker will be finding all the soft spots without the ability to be doubled team.
  
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.
There are a lot of mouths to feed in Denver with Welker, Decker and Thomas at WR. That being said, Welker should be slotted as a nice 2WR option, as his production and consistency give you exactly what you need from a 2WR.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Philly D is shaky so Garcon could easily hit on some big plays.
Ravens don't have the corners to stop all of Denver's weapons. Welker could thrive in debut.
