FantasyPros
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.Prior to last year, Brees had been a top six fantasy QB for eleven straight seasons. Last year may have looked ugly, but it was the most efficient season Brees ever had. If the Saints go back to throwing the ball more and he returns to a normal TD-rate, we would be looking at a top three QB again.
Chet Gresham

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.Brees lost a lot of fantasy points last season due to a crazy rushing-touchdown success rate out of Kamara and Ingram. There is a good chance that success rate goes down a bit and moves Brees' touchdowns back up. His days of No. 1 upside are likely gone, but his ability is still there and he likely will fare better statistically this year.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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.A more balanced system lowers Brees ceiling so while he still has some upside in the dome, he's not the fantasy lock he once was.
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. Since 2008, Brees' touchdown rate had been 5.0 percent or higher, which was the reason he threw for at least 32 touchdowns in each of those seasons. In 2017, however, that number dipped to 4.3 percent. Was it Brees slipping? Well, when you look at his record-setting completion percentage (72.0 percent), highest yards per attempt since 2011 (8.1), and lowest interception rate in his entire career (1.5 percent), my answer would be an emphatic "no." The touchdowns will come back, as will the pass attempts, and Brees will likely be one of the steals in fantasy drafts.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 Unless you think Kamara is getting 35 touches a game to start the season (I don't), you can expect Brees to be doing lots of throwing early on. 8 different QBs have thrown for 40 or more TD's in a single season. Brees is the only that has done it in back to back seasons. Brees threw for 32 or more TD passes in 9 straight years.
Rich Piazza
Fantasy Shed
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. The Saints' backfield is unlikely to repeat last year's success. Combined with the addition of Marquess Wilson and third-round Tre'Quan Smith add a couple of intriguing options in the passing game.
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. Brees showed in the postseason that he can still put up prolific passing numbers when needed and he should still be a strong QB1 in 2018.
