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.
Bobby Sylvester

Wilson has been a top three fantasy QB in three of the past four seasons. Even without weapons or an offensive line, he is a safe bet to deliver once again. With that said, the difference between him and Rodgers is substantial.Newton has a few rough seasons because of two injuries, but every time he has been healthy, fantasy owners have been gifted with a top five fantasy season among QBs. Granted, he won't throw the ball well, but his rushing stats are sure to keep his floor high.

Wilson was the top dog last year but he lost a red-zone beast and one of his top WRs. I still respect his upside and dual threat ability, but I'm not drafting him to be that same guy in 2018.Newton's passing numbers aren't very sexy but he's a dual threat monster. His supporting cast only got better this offseason too and let's not forget he was fantasy's #2 guy in 2017
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Once you get down to around the No. 45 overall pick, the sure things are gone, so why not take one of the elite players at his position? Wilson has now finished as a top-three quarterback in three of the last four seasons and has never fallen out of the top-12 quarterbacks in any of his six seasons. His defense is as bad as its ever been, which should force him to partake in some shootouts that never seemed to happen before. Despite the elite defense that was being played, Wilson has posted QB1 numbers in 47.9 percent of his games, including a career-high 68.8 percent of games in 2017. He offers safety and upside, which is rare at the position. After the failed experiment of trying to dial back Newton's rushing attempts in 2016, it was good to see them unleash him again in 2017. If you take away Newton's ability to run, he wouldn't be a quarterback in this league very long. Fortunately, it seems the Panthers figured that out, making Newton an elite fantasy option once again, rushing for a career-high 754 yards. The upgraded weaponry around him doesn't hurt, either.

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.  
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
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.
Derek Lofland

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.
