Mariota could be a post-hype sleeper this season, but it does take a lot of huevos rancheros to go all-in on him after a very disappointing 2017. I expect the Titans to be good, and the running game will be a big part of that, but Mariota is a good quarterback and if called to do more to push his team over the top, I think he can accommodate.Winston was the 14th-best fantasy quarterback on a per-game basis last season despite three games in which he finished under four fantasy points. We should see improvement with the offensive line and Chris Godwin taking over as a full-time starter at wide receiver, so another run toward being a top-10 quarterback should be in order. UPDATE: Winston has a pending three-game suspension, which will hurt his overall numbers, but it doesn't take him out of the fantasy equation.
Kevin Wheeler

 In the 11 games last season where Jameis Winston played 90%+ of the snaps, he averaged 307 yards, 1.7 touchdowns and 1.0 interception for a 18.9 fantasy point per game average. Had he played at that pace for a full 16-game season, he would have finished as the No. 2 quarterback. @4for4_John

Mariota showed significant upside two seasons ago when he was the QB1 for an eight-week stretch. Last year was a trainwreck, however, as he finished QB18. His ceiling is much higher than that, but the floor is a disaster, making him only a streamer for the time being.Winston is suspended for three weeks so he is undraftable outside of two-qb leagues. When he returns, however, we are looking at a top-10 quarterback. He was superb last season when healthy and still getting better.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After what was a stellar start to his NFL career where he threw 45 touchdowns to just 19 interceptions, Mariota took a giant step back in 2017, despite being given better options to throw to. The good news is that he didn't stop running the ball, as he ran for five touchdowns, easily a career-high. He also just inherited Matt LaFleur as his offensive coordinator, someone who has been tutored by Sean McVay. With the weaponry that he has, there's no reason to think that Mariota can't finish as a top-12 quarterback, but his performance in 2017 left a bad taste in your mouth. When drafting him around the QB18 range, you're taking very little risk, but major upside if he returns to his pre-2017 form. Did you know that if you combined Winston's and Ryan Fitzpatrick's passing yardage last year, it would've led the NFL? Their combined 4,607 yards were more than Tom Brady's 4,577, though their touchdowns (26) were somewhat lacking. Touchdowns are the hardest thing to predict, but seeing Winston's yardage with the weapons around him, big things are going to happen for him. The three-game suspension that he received definitely threw some water on the fire, but you should be able to snag Winston with the final pick in your draft and you should have a top-12 quarterback on a points-per-game basis.
Kevin Roberts

The upside is there with Mariota's dual threat ability, but his receiving talent is still lacking and last year was depressing. He's a sleeper to watch but I'm not soldI believed in Winston last year and he failed me. I won't make that mistake in 2018 so he has to prove a lot but he could easily be a great sleeper

We don't know what the coaching changes will do for him yet, but we hope it's positive.

Mariota seriously regressed as a passer in 2017 but has the chance to reclaim QB1 status with the right kind of offensive-minded coach and offense. Winston missed three games last season but finished as the QB13 in fantasy points-per-game.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Mariota took a huge step back in 2017 and they decided to go with a defensive minded coach in Mike Vrabel. I think Mariota is going to be a better NFL quarterback than fantasy quarterback, but he should still have streaming appeal.
