I do not think a lot of people realized Wilson was the 3rd ranked fantasy QB in 2014, because he only threw for 3,475 yards and 20 touchdown passes. The stat people overlook are his 849 yards rushing and 6 rushing touchdowns. Wilson is one of the premier fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL, despite modest passing numbers. The addition of TE Jimmy Graham should help his passing touchdown numbers.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Flacco gets another offensive coordinator coming off of his best year statistically. The Ravens invested on offense this past draft and with the offensive line performing well Flacco should be a solid QB2 and spot starter for fantasy owners.

- Dennis Esser, Coach Esser

Last year Wilson was a steal as the 12th/13th QB off the board. This year he will not come at that discount. I like Wilson, but even with the Seahawks adding Jimmy Graham I don't think Wilson can do much better than last year's numbers.

- Dennis Esser, Coach Esser

Another solid back-up fantasy QB, with potential to throw 4,000 yards and nearly 30 TDs in 2015. He is one of my back-up QB targets.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

Wilson needs to learn how to throw TD"s as well, but because he knows how to run the ball in the end-zone he is a threat. The major issue with Wilson is he is great for the Seahawks but leaves a bit to be desired as a fantasy QB.

New OC Marc Trestman & talented rookies Perriman/Williams adds some intrigue.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

2014's third best quarterback will see a boost in TDs with Jimmy Graham on board.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

The addition of Marc Trestman as the new offensive coordinator is a nice upgrade for Flacco's fantasy value, but his receivers are going to be a work in progress with two projected starters coming in a s rookies and one who is older than dirt. The good news for his efficiency and padded stats will be Trestman's fetish with passing to his running back. Justin Forsett should easily hit 70+ receptions with a healthy season and his ability in the open field is a nice addition to Flacco's fantasy totals.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Wilson's upside depends on how much more he's allowed to throw the ball and if he can continue to put up similar rushing numbers to last year. Both of those aren't givens with the Seahawks' top-notch rushing offense and defense. I still love his upside with the addition of Jimmy Graham, but I think you should be able to get a discount for a possible decline in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.
