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.Over a five-game sample size, Watson was spectacular. Well, at least his 9.3% TD-rate was. Everything else was mediocre. The TD-rate will come crashing down for sure, just as every other inflated one has in the history of the NFL. Plus, bouncing back from a severe injury isn't as easy as some have made it seem.

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.Am I too high on Watson? Very possible, but if you are going to go after a quarterback early, they sure better have league-winning upside, and Watson sure has that. He led all quarterbacks in fantasy points per game last season and showed me enough to risk an earlier-round pick.

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.Watson looked like a revelation last year but you have to wonder about the knee and if he's a one-year wonder. His upside is insane but he may be getting overdrafted
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. Just how unrepeatable was Watson's 2017 season? Well, since 2000, just four other quarterbacks have thrown a touchdown on more than 7.9 percent of their passes. We're talking about the entire careers of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, and Philip Rivers. Watson's rate was 9.3 percent in 2017. Looking at all quarterbacks in 2017, only he and Carson Wentz threw a touchdown on more than 6.7 percent of their attempts, which should give you all you need to know. In fact, you should expect his touchdown percentage to be cut in half (and it'd still be good). He's still among the top quartebacks because of his rushing ability, but don't pay for last year's production, which was still just six games worth.

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. Bill O'Brien's return and positive reports of Watson being ahead of schedule on his recovery make him an intriguing two-way threat with the position's top upside, as witnessed by Watson's amazing 2017 showing.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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. Watson average a league-high 28.6 fantasy points per game at quarterback before tearing his ACL. He could be the top fantasy quarterback in 2018, but I think the four names ahead of him are safer, as we only have a 7-game body of work.
