Just last year we ranked Wilson right with Rodgers but his injury definitely showed as he wasn't able to move around the field nearly as easily. This year Wilson will be back to his old self. The improved ground game should help, it's just a matter of them staying healthy, which none of the trio in the backfield have proven they are capable of doing. Once again, Wilson will be asked to carry this team. He's elite, so let others take the studs in tier one, while you sit back and scoop Wilson later.  
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Russell Wilson entered 2016 as the only player to post back to back Top-3 fantasy QB seasons. His injury slowed him down quite a bit, but he was still a QB1. You may be tempted to assume he will return back to those Top-3 days now that he is healthy, but he seems unlikely to ever run the ball again as much as he used to. What's more, is that the Seahawks did nothing to address their worst offensive line in the league or their mediocre receiver core.Flacco threw an absurd 672 passes last season and added Danny Woodhead and Jeremy Maclin this offseason. He is a virtual lock to toss for another 4,000+ yards if he is healthy, and is a good bet to see a positive bump in TD%.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
(4200 pa yds, 28 TD, 380 ru yds) His ankle slowed him drastically in the first half of 2016, and he only had one rush TD all year. I expect he'll bounce back to form and have a top 5 finish at QB this year.They will be throwing a ton still, but 80-100 of them will just be dump-offs to Woodhead. Flacco could crack the top-15 this year if everything falls right.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Wilson didn't put up close to the numbers I thought he would last year, but he also played through injuries for most of the first half of the season. Through the first seven games, he averaged 14.2 fantasy points and then upped that average to 18.8 fantasy points for the final nine games of the season. I expect more of that second-half Wilson if he can stay healthy.Flacco gets nice additions in Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead this season, and I expect him to again throw the ball a lot, but he is also dealing with a back injury that will keep him out of training camp.
Staff Rankings
QB List
If you decide to draft Wilson, know that he has scored nearly two thirds of his fantasy points in the second half of the season each of the past three years. You may be better off drafting Phillip Rivers (who always starts hot then fizzles) and trying to trade him to the frustrated Wilson owner in October.Flacco's picked up some new offensive weapons this year which should bump him up a bit from 2016. He's still Joe Flacco though-let's not go nuts. It's also important to note that he's dealing with a back injury now, and as of this writing, he's expected to miss training camp and potentially Week 1, however the Ravens are treating it as not-so-serious (the same thing they did with Breshad Perriman in 2015, and he ended up missing a whole season). Who knows what the truth is with Flacco's injury, but if the Ravens do end up signing Colin Kaepernick (and they might), Flacco might have some competition.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Wilson had 4,219 yards passing and 21 passing touchdowns, but the problem is he had only 72 rushing attempts for 259 yards and 1 touchdown. That should improve this year with his ankle and knee returning to full strength. A poor offensive line is still a major concern for this offense. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
A healthy Russell Wilson should be more dialed in within the pocket and active as a runner. A bounce back season is in order.Flacco isn't an elite fantasy option to begin with, but add a major injury and he's an easy fade in drafts
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
Healthy entering 2017; injuries limited his run game; threw for 13 fewer touchdowns compared to 2016; has been sacked 40-plus times in each of last four seasons; offensive line remains major problem (ranked last by PFF.com).Reached 4,000 yards passing for first time, but with second lowest YPA of career; continues to have mediocre targets; durability becoming more of a concern.

I expect more of that second-half Wilson if he can stay healthy.Flacco gets a nice addition in Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead this season, and I expect him to again throw the ball a lot. I have no problem grabbing Flacco as a backup this year with some room to be a streaming starter.
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Wilson will once again eclipse 5,000 yards in total offense and flirt with 30 touchdowns. Auction Value $14 The Ravens' dink and dunk offense does nothing for Flacco's Fantasy value. Auction Value $2
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite playing on one leg for a majority of the season, Wilson still managed to finish as a QB1 in 2016. If you were to get into his game log, you'd see that he was a different quarterback over the second-half of the season, finishing as the No. 4 quarterback from Week 9 through Week 17.The addition of Jeremy Maclin saved Flacco from throwing to Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman as his starting wide receivers. Not that Wallace isn't solid, but he's not a No. 1, and Perriman hasn't shown anything to suggest he's ready for a full-time role. Look for Maclin and newly acquired running back Danny Woodhead to be favorites of Flacco. The Ravens have led the league in pass attempts over the last two years, but Flacco has just one game with more than 24 fantasy points in that span. He's a safe No. 2 quarterback in 2QB leagues, but not much more.
