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.I'm not sure if anyone has realized it, but Brees has broken the age 40 barrier and is now 41 years old. Unlike Tom Brady, Brees is going to retire after this year. His average depth of target continues to decrease, which will require more pass attempts in order to reach QB1 territory. How to prove that? He completed 74 percent of his passes and threw a touchdown on 7.1 percent of his attempts, yet he was just the No. 7 quarterback in fantasy points per game. His ceiling at this point in middling QB1 territory.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Wilson is the ideal best ball QB target. He will have many up and down games as long as Schottenheimer is holding him back. I expect him to end as a top half QB1, but it will be from overall scoring, not consistency. Not someone I want to trust on a weekly basis in typical redraft leagues, especially at ADP. 
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 almost a lock to start 16 games and is among the safest fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL.Brees had 2,979, 27 passing touchdowns, and just 4 picks in 11 games last year. As long as he stays healthy in 2020, he should be a Top-10 fantasy option, but there is some risk as he turned 41-years old in early January.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Brees is no longer a viable locked in, every-week starter for fantasy football. He's going to be someone that you can plug in to play in certain matchups, but it's unlikely that he ever wins you a week single-handedly at this point.

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 
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Russell Wilson is always difficult to rank due to his incredible efficiency on such low volume. Year after year Wilson manages to put up elite stats while running one of the most run-heavy offenses in football. I think we could see some regression but not enough where he falls outside the top 10. DK Metcalf's 2nd-year progression will be key for Wilson's success.Drew Brees is the classic must start at home and probably avoid while on the road. His home games make him worth rostering but you will be forced to roster another QB for Brees' road weeks. If the value is there and you don't have a pressing need, I'd take him near the double-digit rounds.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Here's a list of things Russell Wilson didn't do after Week 9 in 2019: get over 20 fantasy points, throw more than two TDs, throw for over 270 yards, rush for over 30 yards, finish as a top 6 fantasy QB. Now people are placing him as high as number one in their seasonal rankings! WHY?! I love the talent, he's amazing, but the offence is basing on rushing and will remain that way until they fall badly behind and that happens surprisingly rarely. At the price, I'm passing on Russ. If he falls though, he'll be a solid buy.Drew Brees was the QB2 in fantasy last year! Well, kinda. You need to remove the game against the Rams where he injured himself after 5 throws and measure points per game, but there he is, right near the top! Now he's being taken as a borderline starter in many drafts and I just don't understand why. He threw three TDs in 6 of his last 7 games, he's got Emmanuel Sanders and a fit Alvin Kamara to go with Thomas, Cook and rookie upstart Adam Trautman and he's still got Sean Payton running aggressive plays! He's got mammoth upside for a bargain price. Go get him and stop sleeping on Drew Brees.
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.
