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.
Rivers had a bounce back year in 2013, but toward the end of the season, the Chargers turned into a run oriented team that did not pass as much. I think Rivers has a strong year in 2014, but I think a run oriented offense will keep him at the back of the Top 10. The Chargers clearly intend to be a running team with the addition of RB Donald Brown to an already crowded backfield.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
People are still thinking about 2012, but last year he did put up over 4,000 yards and over 30 TDs. You have to love those numbers from a fantasy perspective.
  
Tom Schriner

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.
Rivers has bounced back and once again become one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL. He is a pretty competent fantasy football gunslinger as well.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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.
Rivers revived his career in a new system last year. Expect more of the same from him in 2014.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
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.
Rivers was named the 2013 Comeback Player of the Year last season as he shocked the world in the process. An area of concern for future Rivers owners is that HC – Mike McCoy transitioned the offense from a quick-hitting passing attack to a more heavy run offense, as Rivers only threw for 30+ Passing Attempts only once in the final six games of the season. Even though Rivers finished as a top-line fantasy quarterback in 2013, we feel that there are 13 other trustworthy options out there to roll with who can lead you to a championship.

Has looked fantastic in the preseason. This bump (from 18) is warranted.

Fantasy Team Advice
 
Rivers enjoyed a bounceback 2013 courtesy of Mike McCoy. Expect similar numbers this season as the Chargers return the majority of their key players from a year ago
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Even a slight uptick in passing volume could make him a solid QB1.
Has thrown for 4,000+ yards in 5 of last 6 years with solid TD totals.
  
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.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Outstanding August reminds us he was the 8th best QB in '13 despite run first team.
Underrated QB1 potential typically going in the 9-10th round.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
