Flacco was on pace for a career year in 2015 before he went down with an injury. Another Summer learning Marc Trestman's offense can't hurt either.

- Dennis Esser, Coach Esser

Missing Jimmy Graham early in the season could hurt a bit, but Tyler Lockett could fill a lot of the void with continued progress.

The touchdowns weren't impressive (14), but Flacco averaged 41.3 pass attempts and 279 yards passing in 10 games before tearing his ACL i...

System is there and he has the long ball but weapons could be just as shaky as last year.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Wilson's insane tear last year can't be dismissed, nor can Seattle's slow shift to a more pass friendly system. His upside continues to make him a legit top-5 threat.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Flacco is a good QB2 to target.

Seahawks should continue to evolve as a passing offense.

Joe Flacco is not an elite QB, but he is still a very good QB. His current ADP of 138.0 may be depressed due to the ACL and MCL tears from last season. But Flacco is looking to be ready by opening day. He may be a little rusty in the first month of the season, but I'm OK with that as I am drafting him as my primary bye-week backup QB, or as an insurance in case my staring QB goes down to injury. Let's not forget that he is a former Super Bowl MVP and had a decent 2014 season with almost 4,000 passing yards, 27 TD passes, and 12 interceptions. His targets this season are WRs Steve Smith Sr., Mike Wallace, Kamar Aiken and TE Benjamin Watson. Look for some additional fantasy points from RBs Justin Forsett and rookie Kenneth Dixon.

Proved he can carry a team with his arm in '15 (272.3 pass YPG, 24 TD passes in final 7 games) - No. 3 QB in Y! game each of past 2 seasons
