Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Let's be clear -- Ryan isn't going to throw the ball 608 times again in 2019. That happened last year due to the insane amount of injuries to their defensive starters, as well as the injuries to both Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Still, Ryan has proved to be a reliable fantasy quarterback who may not provide the highest weekly upside, but he offers more stability than most. He's been a top-12 type performer in 27-of-48 games the last three years, so he's still not someone you should reach forThe change in offense really hurt Wilson's potential in 2018 and you have to wonder if it'll be the same in 2019. After seeing his pass attempts rise every year in the league, Wilson saw them dip down to just 427 of them in 2018. Losing Doug Baldwin surely won't help, though the addition of D.K. Metcalf won't hurt. Wilson is likely a lock to finish top-10 at his position, but his upside has diminished greatly
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ryan had a quietly elite season last year, passing for 4,924 yards and 35 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. Ryan has had a bit of a good year-bad year trajectory over the last several seasons, but with Dirk Koetter back with the Falcons, Ryan should buck that trend with his second consecutive excellent season. He's not exciting, but with outstanding weapons and a great home venue, he should be one of the elite fantasy quarterbacks this season.Wilson's fantasy career is almost bizarre. His passing numbers have never jumped off the page, as he's only topped 4,000 passing yards twice in his seven-year career despite never missing a game. Although he used to make up for it with his legs, he ran less than ever last year and scored no rushing touchdowns. And yet his touchdown efficiency spiked, as he threw 35 touchdown passes in just 427 attempts. Relying on that again, especially without Doug Baldwin, seems foolhardy. At the same time, his consistency and reliability, however he gets his numbers, warrants QB1 consideration.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Matty Ice gets 13 of his games in a dome this season, where he has excelled in his career and is the best for fantasy purposes. He also gets a new OC, albeit he has worked with him before, but Ryan tends to struggle in his first season with a new offense before having a huge season his second year. He put up 4924/35 last season, 4095/20 the year before that, would not be surprised if he meets both those totals in the middle this season. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Ryan is not as sexy to own as Mahomes or Rodgers, but he certainly has gotten the job done over the last three seasons. In that time, no fantasy football player has more fantasy points, and with a reasonable 5.6% TD-rate, that pace appears to be sustainable. It further helps that he may have the best receiving corps in football.As odd as it may seem with Wilson finishing as the fantasy QB9, he had the most efficient passing season of his career in 2018. The differences, of course, were that the rest of the league caught up, Seattle ran the snot out of the ball, and that Wilson himself only rushed for 376 yards with 0 scores. Unless they throw more or he returns to scrambling as a 30-year-old, he isn't likely to improve on that QB9 ranking this season.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Ryan's weapons are fantastic and he continues to be underrated. I won't pay a premium price to own him, but you won't be sad you drafted him.I never love to trust Seattle's system, but Wilson just gets the job done. I don't want to draft him like a top-10 arm, but thats what he is.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
My ranking on Matt Ryan is likely going to be lower than most. It's not that I think he's a bad pick, I just don't like taking non mobile QB's. Ryan is going to add virtually nothing with his legs (never been over 150 rushing yards), so if he gets a bit unlucky in the TD department then he's going to bust. Here are Matt Ryan's finishes over the last 10 seasons: 14/19/8/8/7/15/7/19/2/15/2. Matt Ryan is a good QB, but he's had two seasons with abnormally high TD rates...care to take a guess which two? Even giving him the 5th highest passing TD projection, I just can't justify ranking him as high as he's being taken in drafts. He's going to need to get lucky with TD's to pay off, and I don't draft mid round QB's who need to get lucky. That's just not a winning strategy.I will not be drafting Russell Wilson this season. The Seahawks have scripted far fewer QB runs than they did earlier in his career, and they've implemented a run first approach to the offense. Last season Wilson had an 8.2% TD rate, which was significantly above his career average, and is significantly higher than any QB can sustain. Even Peyton Manning had a career 5.7% TD rate, and had just two seasons in his career above 6.5%. Wilson is GOING TO SEE REGRESSION with his TD rate, and since there's no reason to expect his volume to increase, there's no reason we should be targeting him in drafts. He's being taken as the QB 8 right now. In the season I just talked about being hyperly efficient...he was the QB 9.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ryan was 2nd among fantasy quarterbacks, thanks to 4,924 yards passing, 35 passing touchdowns and just 7 picks. He should continue to be great fantasy player in 2019.Wilson was 9th among fantasy quarterbacks in 2018, despite having only 427 passing attempts. His rushing ability and his 8.2 touchdown percentage make him a great QB1 in fantasy football.
