When Wentz is healthy, he's a lock to put up QB1 numbers with upside for more. With DeSean Jackson added, Wentz has an additional deep threat, and the offense should drop plenty of points each game. But he's missed eight games over the last two seasons, and the injury risk can't be ignored at this point. Add that all up and Wentz is a mid-to-low-end QB1, worth drafting in all formats.Wilson's fantasy career is almost bizarre. His passing numbers have never jumped off the page, as he's only topped 4,000 passing yards twice in his seven-year career despite never missing a game. Although he used to make up for it with his legs, he ran less than ever last year and scored no rushing touchdowns. And yet his touchdown efficiency spiked, as he threw 35 touchdown passes in just 427 attempts. Relying on that again, especially without Doug Baldwin, seems foolhardy. At the same time, his consistency and reliability, however he gets his numbers, warrants QB1 consideration.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
In the 11 weeks Wentz was healthy last season, he was the QB15 thanks to a greatly diminished TD-rate (as expected). With that said, he was even more efficient than his 2017 MVP campaign so there is more upside. The concern, of course, is that Wentz is still not healed from the back injury that kept him out at the end of the season so be sure to monitor that as your fantasy draft draws near.As odd as it may seem with Wilson finishing as the fantasy QB9, he had the most efficient passing season of his career in 2018. The differences, of course, were that the rest of the league caught up, Seattle ran the snot out of the ball, and that Wilson himself only rushed for 376 yards with 0 scores. Unless they throw more or he returns to scrambling as a 30-year-old, he isn't likely to improve on that QB9 ranking this season.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Wentz had some of the same consistency issues that Texans QB Deshaun Watson had returning from ACL surgery and Wentz also dealt with other injuries, causing him to miss 5 games. I think he will be a much different QB in 2019 with these injury issues hopefully behind him.Wilson was 9th among fantasy quarterbacks in 2018, despite having only 427 passing attempts. His rushing ability and his 8.2 touchdown percentage make him a great QB1 in fantasy football.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
All about health. We have seen what Wentz can do when healthy. He can be a top 5 QB if health permits, but that is a big if. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Wentz was having an MVP season in 2017 and then came back from injury in 2018 and was better in many statistical aspects. His TD% decreased, but I'd count on it being higher this season with the addition of Desean Jackson. DJax has improved the yards per attempt of almost every QB he's every played with and yards per attempt is a key statistic for measuring the success of a QB. Wentz's upside is sky high. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
All the hype behind Wentz feels real. He's over a year removed from his knee injury and should be confident again. Getting D-Jax and upgrades at RB won't hurt, either.I never love to trust Seattle's system, but Wilson just gets the job done. I don't want to draft him like a top-10 arm, but thats what he is.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you were to put Wentz's numbers up against the career of this decade's fantasy starters, his closest comparison would be Tony Romo. During his career, Romo posted QB1-type numbers 45 percent of the time, which is precisely what Wentz has done in his three years. Wentz hasn't offered the upside that some of the quarterbacks above him in the rankings, but he should provide high-end QB2-type production at year's endThe change in offense really hurt Wilson's potential in 2018 and you have to wonder if it'll be the same in 2019. After seeing his pass attempts rise every year in the league, Wilson saw them dip down to just 427 of them in 2018. Losing Doug Baldwin surely won't help, though the addition of D.K. Metcalf won't hurt. Wilson is likely a lock to finish top-10 at his position, but his upside has diminished greatly
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I think people forget how good Carson Wentz is. He was the clear cut MVP in 2017 before tearing his ACL, then he posted a 21/7 TD/INT rate in his 11 healthy games last season, finishing with over 300 yards or multiple scores in 8/11 weeks. He opens this season fully healthy, and is currently 4th in MVP odds. The offense also upgraded in the offseason. Not only has Alshon/Ertz/Agholor all returned...but Goedert is now set to take a step forward in his second season, the traded for DeSean Jackson (who's still an elite field stretcher), they signed Jordan Howard in FA, and they drafted both Miles Sanders and J.J. Arcega Whiteside. These are elite offensive weapons, and the Eagles have PFF's top rated offensive line. I expect the Eagles to make another Super Bowl run...and I expect Carson Wentz to be the driving force behind it.I will not be drafting Russell Wilson this season. The Seahawks have scripted far fewer QB runs than they did earlier in his career, and they've implemented a run first approach to the offense. Last season Wilson had an 8.2% TD rate, which was significantly above his career average, and is significantly higher than any QB can sustain. Even Peyton Manning had a career 5.7% TD rate, and had just two seasons in his career above 6.5%. Wilson is GOING TO SEE REGRESSION with his TD rate, and since there's no reason to expect his volume to increase, there's no reason we should be targeting him in drafts. He's being taken as the QB 8 right now. In the season I just talked about being hyperly efficient...he was the QB 9.
