Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Wilson may not survive the season given the state of his offensive line, particularly now that Luke Joeckel will miss a significant period of time, but he's healthy now and producing for fantasy owners. The Giants allow the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks despite their strong secondary, and they certainly could be due for a letdown effort after last week's shocking upset over the Broncos. Wilson has typically put up huge numbers only when his team is trailing and he's in catchup mode, and that's unlikely to be the case this week. But he should provide solid QB1 numbers, albeit likely without the ceiling that he usually brings. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Giants are 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks, but they looked elite on SNF. The Seahawks sometimes struggle on the road, but Wilson should be a QB1 coming off his bye week. Rivers had 3 touchdown passes against Denver in the opener, but Denver is 12th against fantasy running backs and he is a low-upside QB2 this week.
