Who Should I Draft?
Joe Flacco or Russell Wilson (2014)

|“In terms of fantasy value, I think Wilson is going to break out in his third year and one thing that would help him is having WR Percy Harvin for an entire season. The loss of WR Golden Tate will hurt, but if Harvin stays healthy for 16 games, it will more than make up for it.”||“Flacco was a disappointment in fantasy, but if the Ravens can improve their offensive line and add some targets, he may bounce back in 2014. The addition of WR Steve Smith could help this offense, but keep in mind that it is not 2005 anymore.”|
|“Despite his lack of size (5'9", 206), Russell Wilson proved many naysayers wrong in 2013 by bringing the Seattle Seahawks franchise a Super Bowl ring. In only his second season Wilson was able to compile 3,357 yards and 26 touchdowns through the air while adding an additional 539 yards and 1 touchdown via his legs. And head coach Pete Carroll expects Wilson to take another big step forward in 2014. He is already on the cusp of becoming a 4,000/30 quarterback, so what does his full-potential bring? While I don't believe it will be a 4,500 season or 40 touchdowns, a happy-medium in between last years stats and next season is within reach. They did lose Golden Tate to the Detroit Lions and Marshawn Lynch is starting to put a lot of mileage on his wheels, but the Seahawks still have plenty of weapons at Wilson's helm. Look for the 25-year-old to take another step forward, securing a position as a solid low-end QB1, high-end QB2 in deeper, 12-team fantasy formats.”|
