Mariota still has upside and he has better weapons around him now than he's had in the past. I just don't trust him.Flacco is not a great fantasy contributor historically and he's in regression mode. He's also on a new team that needs to run the ball to win and he'll have Drew Lock breathing down his neck. No thanks.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Mariota was a trainwreck last year with only 11 touchdowns and 2,500 yards but he was playing hurt for most of the season. We've seen flashes at times of a quality fantasy performer, and we all know he has the ceiling to finish within the top 10, but if you are drafting him, it merely as a QB3 with hope for more.Although the Broncos drafted Drew Lock, it wasn't until the second round so it is by no means certain that he will ever overtake Flacco for the starting job. With that said, Flacco's job isn't safe if he performs poorly again, and the receiver corps certainly won't help so think of him as a QB3 in SuperFlex leagues.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
No way should Mariota be trusted this season, and for anyone who says Mariota gets rushing points, his rushing prowess is overblown. He averages just over 22 rushing yards a game in his career and has rushed for only 2 touchdowns, three of four seasons. Everything about Mariota is a losing proposition.Low end QB2 in what should be a run first offense.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Even if you're in a 2QB format, it's tough to rely on Mariota, who is reportedly going to be forced to compete for the starting job heading into the 2019 season. They brought in Ryan Tannehill, who has extremely similar numbers throughout his career to Mariota despite playing with lesser talent. The worst part about Mariota is that he's declined in each of the last two seasons, as this is the time in his career where he's supposed to be coming into his own. He's nothing more than a QB3 hopeful despite all the talent around himSome will start a debate about which quarterback will start for the Broncos, but it's going to be Flacco. There are things in Drew Lock's game that need to be worked out before he takes the field. Flacco isn't a lock to hold onto the starting job all season, though, making him a tough sell, even in 2QB formats. The weapons have been upgraded in Denver, as Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Noah Fant give him plenty of weapons to throw to, though it's tough not to see them as a run-first team
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I understand why Mariota is being taken as late as he is. This isn't a high volume offense, and they want to run the ball a lot. The thing is, people are overreacting too much to what he did last season. Walker was injured, the play calling was bad, and he suffered an injury to his throwing hand. This year they enter with a top 10 offensive line, a new offensive coordinator, a healthy Walker, new FA WR Adam Humphries, and second round WR A.J. Brown. If Mariota can stay healthy then he should push to improve upon the numbers we saw him put up in his sophomore season. In that year he finished as a fringe QB 1, despite rankings 24th in pass attempts
