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 off-season. He is a virtual lock to toss for another 4,000+ yards, and is a good bet to see a positive bump in TD% which should help him improve upon his rough QB #20 season from 2016.

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 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. **

Wilson will once again toatl 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

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. 
Derek Lofland

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.
