Top fantasy QB in W1 (448/3); I like his chances of reaching 5K pass yards after falling a little short past 2 years
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
2014 draft positives include 1st rounder T Matthews and the pass-friendly Freeman.
Outstanding August reminds us he was the 8th best QB in '13 despite run first team.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Expect a major bounce back year out of Matty-Ice. A porous defense will put Atlanta in the position for many many shootouts this year. With TE Tony Gonzalez gone the Falcons weren’t interested in refilling his position. Instead, they added another WR, Harry Douglas, which gives Ryan three great WR options. Julio Jones has already been spotted running, cutting, juking – we don’t see his left foot being any concern this season. A healthy WR Corps, a 31 year old RB Steven Jackson, a bad Defense and a pass happy OC Dirk Koetter is more than enough to expect Atlanta to lead the league in pass attempts this season.
Pete Carroll confirmed recently that the Seahawks will remain committed to the run in 2014. In the past two seasons, Wilson tallied 393 Pass Attempts (32nd in the NFL) and 407 Pass Attempts (31st in the NFL) and will probably hover around the 400 mark once again in 2014. Both the running game and defense are so strong that the Seattle Offense doesn’t call for a potent aerial attack. Wilson is as solid as they come and should be considered a stable option in 2014, but not one to topple other fantasy opponents.

For all the same reasons as Romo. Will be a solid fantasy option this year.
Has looked fantastic in the preseason. This bump (from 18) is warranted.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He is extremely consistent and safe. There is no doubt he will put up 4,000 yards and 30 TDs. It's too hard not to draft him at QB.
Wilson's upside is a bit capped with Seattle's solid ground game. 2014 is the first year that he can potentially put up over 30 TD's so you have to love his upside.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
In 2013 Matt Ryan was one of only 3 quarterbacks in fantasy football to have double-digit 20-point weeks along with having at least 7 300+ passing yard games. Considering that Roddy White, Julio Jones and Steven Jackson weren't much to rely on because of injuries and you have to walk away impressed with the quarterbacks campaign. He also had a positive 0.375 FFLockerRoom True Proficiency Game Average. http://fflockerroom.com/2014/07/25/2014-fantasy-football-draft-preparation-quarterback-proficiency/
While Wilson is not a sexy name, he is one of the best at what he does and that is time management. The Seahawks have a great running attack and tough defense so Wilson will never be relied on too much to carry their team, but rather he will be expected not to lose it. That isn't exactly what you want when it comes to quarterbacks to lead your fantasy team into a championship game. He is a solid QB2 but nothing more.

Fantasy Team Advice
Since the Falcons switched to their uptempo, pass heavy attack we have been unable to figure out why Matt Ryan is consistently overlooked in fantasy formats. Sure, he might not put up the most touchdowns in the league, but with this poor defense he will be playing catch-up more often than not, meaning plenty of yards and fantasy production. If you want to wait on a QB, Ryan offers some of the best value around
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
Seattle scored on 11/13 Wilson drives this preseason. The scheme keeps him from being truly fantasy relevant, but his already strong game is continuing to develop.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Matt Ryan was without Julio Jones and a healthy Roddy White most of last season and it showed. He did throw the ball a ton, with the second most attempts by any QB last season, but ended up as the 14th best fantasy QB with no playmakers to do anything with all those passes. He finished as the 6th best fantasy QB in 2012 and there's no reason he can't match that finish with Jones and White healthy.
If Seattle's defense wasn't so good I think Wilson would be much higher than this, but as it is he doesn't need to put up big numbers very often. Seattle loves running the ball and playing defense. Wilson's upside at the moment is in his scrambling ability, but once again, if Seattle has a lead they aren't pushing Wilson to run much in fear of him getting injured.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Better health for Julio and Roddy will help, but Gonzo's retirement hurts.
Even a slight uptick in passing volume could make him a solid QB1.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Ryan had poor protection and his weapons were banged up. Expect a big rebound in 2014.
Wilson is rock solid but it appears he's hit his ceiling in Seattle's offense as it is now constructed. It doesn't help that his top two WRs never are healthy, either.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I think Ryan is one of the most overrated fantasy players in the NFL this year. First, WR Roddy White is starting to advance in age and TE Tony Gonzalez retired and no viable replacement brought into the fold. Also, the Falcons play the NFC West and AFC North this year, divisions loaded with tough defenses. I think Ryan is a middle of the road fantasy QB2, not an elite option.
Wilson is extremely under ranked in terms of fantasy value this year. Wilson was the ninth ranked fantasy quarterback in 2012 and the eighth ranked fantasy quarterback in 2013. He is only entering his third season and should have a healthy WR Percy Harvin this year. I think he is easily a Top 10 fantasy quarterback with his solid touchdown totals, low turnovers and strong rushing statistics.
