Wilson may have more potential this season than he's had in other year due to the uncertainties at the running back position for the Seahawks. Rashaad Penny seems destined for the PUP list to begin the season, while Chris Carson is recovering from his own injury. If the Seahawks aren't able to run the ball as effectively as they have in previous seasons, we may see Wilson throw the ball more than he's had to before. Wilson has an expensive price tag right now, but he may be worth it when it's all said and done.Even without Hopkins, Watson is going to be just fine for fantasy due to his rushing and playmaking ability. His overall ceiling will take a hit without Hopkins present, but he's still going to be a safe option to roll out every single week.

Despite taking only the 19th-most dropbacks in '18, Russell Wilson had the 2nd-most endzone targets & 2nd most TD on those throws (51 -> 24). Despite taking only the 10th-most dropbacks in '19, Russ had the most endzone targets (by 7!) & 2nd-most TD on those throws (59 -> 20 TD). - @Pat_Thorman Russell Wilson ranked 4th among QBs in total fantasy points last year. But he tied for just 11th in number of top-12 weeks (7). @SmolaDS Wilson threw the ball 516 times in 2019 and was sacked 48 times. That's 564 total drop backs. My projections have him increasing his game by game volume. Wilson has always been efficient and is one of the best at throwing accurately deep. @willson8tor xx

 There is plenty of reason to consider Kyler as your #4 fantasy quarterback ahead of Watson now that DeAndre Hopkins is out of town but frankly, fantasy value has much more to do with volume than surrounding talent. The Texans should be bad this season which ought to lead to an additional 50+ pass attempts in 2020 than we've grown used to seeing. That alone would more than supplement the fantasy impact of losing Hopkins.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 Just to play devil's advocate, Hopkins put up 1165 and 7 last year on 150 targets. A more spread out offense with more efficient production could Prevent Watson from really declining at all
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Wilson is about as safe as they come at the quarterback position, as he's now been a top-12 quarterback in each of his eight seasons, while finishing top-three four different times. He does that by staying on the field, as he's as durable as they come. His 48.1 percent QB1 hit-rate ranks 10th since 2000, though he refuses to bust, scoring fewer than 14.0 fantasy points in just 27.3 percent of his games, which ranks as the fifth-lowest mark in that time. He's reportedly asked the Seahawks brass to unleash the passing game a bit more in 2020, which could give him a bit more upside. We already know the floor is there.Let's be clear: Losing your No. 1 receiver (DeAndre Hopkins) that you targeted nearly 10 times per game is going to hurt production, especially when he was the type of receiver you could throw the ball up to in one-on-one situations and expect him to win. The Texans now have Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Kenny Stills, and Keke Coutee as his primary receivers. That's a list complied of speed and slot... that's it. Watson might be running more than ever in 2020, which is very appealing to fantasy owners, but his efficiency through the air is going to come down. We've never seen Watson without Hopkins, so he comes with an additional level of concern that you don't want when selecting a quarterback in the top six rounds.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Wilson had another stellar season with 4,110 yards passing and 31 passing touchdowns. He also had 342 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. He is a lock to start 16 games and is among the safest fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL.Ideally, Watson will not be so up and down in 2020, but his season stats are undeniable. He had 3,852 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns to go along with 413 yards rushing and 7 rushing touchdowns.
Steven Pintado
The Fantasy Coaches
Wilson was a solid play in 2019 since he was a round 8/9 QB so his value was solid. During the second half was only QB 15. He should still be considered a top QB with his running and dominate QB play.
