Watch closely to Russell Wilson's injury status. If he goes, it isn't the best of matchups and he will not be 100%, but he was drafted as a top five quarterback for a reason so expect him to put up at least borderline QB1 numbers in Week 4.Just because Carolina's defense has been sensational the past few seasons doesn't mean this is an especially bad matchup for Matt Ryan. The Falcons match up well against the Panthers' pass rush and could take advantage of a deflated Carolina secondary. Expect more fireworks from Ryan in what could be the highest scoring game of the week.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
I think a healthy Wilson could beat the Jets' secondary pretty well, as the Jets will slow down the Seahawks' run game, forcing him to throw more, but his health is the concern right now. If Wilson plays, I still like him as a back-end starter 
FantasyPros Staff
FantasyPros
Wilson is dealing with a sprained MCL and can be viewed as a low-end QB1 against the Jets. He has produced 0.35 fantasy points per drop back so far this season and has only thrown two touchdowns.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jets are 20th against fantasy quarterbacks this year, but Wilson is too banged up to be a QB1 in this favorable matchup.Carolina is 8th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Ryan is playing at such a high level, that he is still a QB1.
