Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Why is Wilson continually hated by the fantasy community? His late-season struggles last year have many avoiding him in 2021, though you shouldn't be one of those people. Over the course of his career (now 144 games), he's posted top-12 type numbers in 50.7 percent of his games, which ranks sixth among quarterbacks who've started 50-plus games since 2000. That's a better career mark than Drew Brees, who was continually drafted as a top-three quarterback during his prime. Wilson has never finished worse than QB11 and has finished as a top-three quarterback in four of the last seven seasons. He's as stable as they come.Don't go out of your way to snag him in early drafts. Even if Rodgers does play for the Packers, his touchdown rate was 9.1 in 2020. If we dial that number back to Rodgers' career mark of 6.3 percent, which is still elite, he would've finished as the QB10 instead of the QB2 that he did. He doesn't offer mobility anymore and his offense isn't what we'd describe as "pass heavy." Even if we knew he was playing this year, QB8 should be the price.

Let Russ Cook! I was completely wrong about him last year and I got burned. I thought the Seahawks were going run heavy and they let him air it out. That was the knock on him. His offensive scheme was too run heavy. It was never his talent. Seattle brought in a new offensive coordinator, Shane Waldron, from the Rams, so any worries about Brian Schottenheimer going back to the run are gone. The main concern- can the offensive line protect him? Wilson complained openly about getting hit too much. If they can, Russ will serve up plenty of fantasy points for hungry owners.The million dollar question...will Rodgers play for Green Bay again? If he does he's one of the all-time greats and the Packers offense becomes a force again. It sounds like both sides are digging in their heels though. The Packers have no desire to trade Rodgers and Aaron doesn't want to come back. It goes without saying to monitor this situation closely throughout the summer.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
For the first nine weeks of the season Russell Wilson, averaged 29.5 pts per game. After that, Wilson averaged just 17.5 pts the rest of the way, killing his MVP candidacy and many fantasy playoff hopes as well. Wilson is a steady presence, despite the down ending in 2020. He should be a lock for 4+K yards and around 35 TDs. The notion the Seahawks were shopping him seriously this offseason is laughable. The franchise QB isn't going anywhere. Last season, Wilson's rushing yards went back above the 500 mark, and his 42 combined passing and rushing TDs were a career-high. At 32, Wilson is in his prime and is an excellent redraft or dynasty investment. D.K. Metcalf's emerging star, coupled with the familiarity of Tyler Lockett, a returning Chris Carson, and an exciting slot WR option drafted in D'Wayne Eskridge, should keep Wilson high on the fantasy QB scale again at season's end. He could be the best return on investment in the position.Aaron Rodgers had an elite level season, but at 38 this year, it's better to think of him as just a hair behind that top 5 group. He threw for a league-high 48 TDs and just five picks while posting 4,299 yards passing and 387 fantasy points. Everything broke right for Rodgers in 2020. Well, except for the NFC Championship game. Oh, and the fact he's "disgruntled" with the organization. It's important not to lose sight of the fact that Rodgers threw for 25 TDs in '18 and 26 TDs in '19. The 48 seems like a pretty colossal outlier at this stage in his career. He had a three-week period where he threw for 15 TDs. Rodgers will give you consistently solid QB play and is still a reliable, upper-tier QB in fantasy. It would be foolish to bid on 2020 as though it was repeatable. Davante Adams had a lot to do with Rodgers' success. If Adams should suffer any injury again, Rodgers' value would immediately take a massive hit. This is the significant difference between Rodgers and a QB like Matt Ryan, who has more weapons at his disposal. For the second year in a row, Green Bay failed to bring in a complementary WR of note, although bringing back Aaron Jones is beneficial to the offense.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 He hasn't reported to camp (OTAs) and he wants an extension and/or to be traded. Lots of question marks here, but he's a top-10 fantasy QB for me in 2021 likely no matter what happens here (unless he somehow holds out or retires of course).
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The #LetRussCook movement seemed to have worked because the Seahawks finally let go of the run-centric Brian Schottenheimer at OC and brought in Rams pass-game coordinator for the last 4 seasons, Shane Waldron, to take his place. We have seen Jared Goff thrive under his watch but we've also seen run-centric offenses in LA. If Russell Wilson is finally unleashed, he could finally have the top-3 fantasy season everyone has been waiting for.A pissed-off Aaron Rodgers is a great Aaron Rodgers, and boy does he seem angry. It's hard to rank Rodgers at this point, not knowing if he will still be a Packer in Week 1, but wherever he ends up, he is going to have a chip on his shoulder the size of a Green Bay wheel of cheese. I'm going to be betting on that a motivated Rodgers, just like I did last season.

 Risk worth avoiding right now given he could sit out the entire year.

FantasyPros
Wilson really regressed in the second half of the season. In games 1-8, he had 236.1 fantasy points or 29.5 points per game. In games 9-17, he had 136.5 fantasy points or 17.1 fantasy points per game. Wilson is still 32-years old and in his career prime, but he can't be considered an elite QB1. He is more of a low-end QB1.The big question is will he play in Green Bay. It looks like there is going to be a standoff between Rodgers and the GM and landing spot will impact his 2021 fantasy ranking
