Wilson has such great upside, even in games where he isn't at his best, that I find it hard to not rank him second at the moment. I would love to see the Seahawks add some receiving weapons and offensive linemen, but no matter what, Wilson gets the job done on many fronts.Carolina's coaching staff says they will let Newton run, which means I'm on board with him as a top fantasy player. He's too inconsistent, but when he hits, he's helping your fake football team.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about Wilson's fantasy outlook for 2018. The Seahawks didn't do much to improve that offensive line in free agency or the draft. Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson just don't get me excited, and the wide receiver group is more or less the same. He would be lower on the rankings if not for his Houdini like ability to avoid pressure, and the rushing production he gives.

Last year's top-ranked QB will be the first QB picked in plenty of leagues. Wilson may have to rely on his arm more this season, as Seattle's once-dominant defense looks to take a major step back. Newton had a down year as a passer but remains an elite runner, which more than supplements his fantasy production.

Wilson averaged 25.7 fantasy points per game and he should still be the top player in this offense, even with a new offensive coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer. He did lose TE Jimmy Graham and WR Paul Richardson in free agency, but his ability to run the football still keeps him in the elite fantasy quarterback discussion. Newton averaged 22.8 fantasy points per game in 2017 and I think a change at offensive coordinator was long overdue. It will be interesting to see if Norv Turner can turn this team into a more efficient offense.
