Did you see Green Bay's defense last year? If you did, you'd probably think I'm too low on Wilson. The concern is that Wilson seemingly always starts the season slow. It may just be a coincidence, but of his five Week 1 starts, he's never topped 18 fantasy points. In fact, he's topped 15 points just once. Oddly enough, though, he does average more fantasy points on the road. He's a QB1.

Green Bay drafted some secondary help, but defense is still a question mark and Wilson should do better than the 5 picks he had in GB last year. Olsen had 5 receptions for 122 yards and 1 touchdown against San Fran last year and he should have good success against them this year too.
