FantasyPros
The Saints were 27th against fantasy wide receivers last year, Godwin figures to have WR1 value in a likely shootout, especially with Mike Evans likely on a snap count.Vegas was just 19th against fantasy wide receivers last year, Moore has a great matchup and he should be a WR1 in Week 1.

Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's been rumored in camp that Godwin looks good, but that he's lacking something. He also missed a few practices throughout training camp, so it's something worth monitoring early in the season. The Saints cornerback unit is extremely good, especially since they added Janoris Jenkins at the end of the season. He'll replace the inconsistent Eli Apple opposite Marshon Lattimore. It's a tougher matchup than last year when Godwin hung 7/125/2 on them in Week 5, then 3/47/1 in Week 11. The Saints may not decide to shadow Mike Evans with Lattimore anymore considering Godwin's success, though Jenkins surely changes things. The combination of Lattimore and Jenkins allowed 87-for-159 passing in their coverage for 1,205 yards and seven touchdowns while intercepting six passes. That amounts to a QB Rating below 80. It is worth noting that Godwin's big game last year came while in New Orleans, but it was also before Jenkins was there. You're going to start Godwin in season-long leagues as a WR2 at worst, but it's not a week to feel very confident in cash games. I do like him better than Evans in tournaments, though.Most of the time, we can say that those who have experience with the quarterback and/or offense, they have a leg up on the rest of the receivers. That's the odd thing about the Panthers this offseason. They have a new offense being installed, as well as a new quarterback. Moore saw 135 targets last year, but does the addition of Robby Anderson hurt his ceiling? Anderson does have experience under Matt Rhule. I'm still siding with Moore, who's easily the best receiver on the roster. The Raiders allowed a massive 1.94 PPR points per target last year (fifth-most) but saw just 281 wide receiver targets on the year (eighth fewest), making them look better than they were. The 9.54 yards per target they allowed was the most in the league. They acknowledged the issue and added both free agent Prince Amukamara and first-rounder Damon Arnette to their cornerback unit this offseason. They wound up cutting Amukamara because they were impressed with Arnette, though just a week later, Arnette fractured his thumb. He's reportedly going to play with a cast on, which is far from ideal when covering someone as slippery as Moore. They don't do any shadowing, so Moore should see a mixture of Trayvon Mullen, Arnette, and Lamarcus Joyner. Knowing the changes and how it may take time for the new cornerbacks to acclimate, I still feel confident starting Moore as a solid high-end WR2 this week who presents WR1 upside. I wouldn't play him in cash lineups considering all the changes on his own team and that we haven't seen how the target share will play out, but he does deserve tournament consideration.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Mike Evans is dealing with a hamstring injury, and even if he is able to get on the field on Sunday, he will likely be somewhat limited. That should result in a ton of targets for Chris Godwin against the Saints' defense which he scored 3 touchdowns on last season. Tom Brady is going to help Godwin's efficiency and he should produce some monster numbers in this game that has one of the highest over/under totals on the week.D.J. Moore is probably my favorite third/fourth-round receiver target this year and he draws an awesome Week 1 matchup as the Raiders' secondary is completely beatable. Moore put up almost 1,200 yards last year in a putrid offense. Things should be much improved around him with a new and exciting coaching staff as well as a new quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater. I expect this to be a high-scoring game as neither defense scares me and I think Moore has a WR1 Week 1.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
The Saints and Bucs could very easily hit the over on the Vegas line this week, which means that you should invest in the top options from a fantasy perspective. As long as Godwin's fully healthy, which all reports are that he seems good to go, he's going to be a must-start option. Plug him into your lineup and don't think twice about it.The Panthers and Raiders game could easily turn into a shootout this weekend. If that's the case, the Panthers are going to be throwing the ball a ton and Moore could easily see over 10 targets in this game. While Moore isn't known for scoring touchdowns, which limits his upside in any format outside of Full PPR, he's going to be heavily targeted in this matchup. He's a safe WR2 this week with WR1 upside in Full PPR formats.
