Ryan has been disappointing from a fantasy perspective through the first two games, but he's hardly to blame. Although he has just two touchdowns, he's thrown for 573 yards and has completed 69 percent of his passes. While the lack of touchdowns is disappointing, it seems pretty clear that Ryan hasn't missed much of a beat with new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. The Lions' passing defense is off to a terrific start, but it's still unclear whether the success is due to the talent-level or the poor quarterback play of the Lions' opponents (Carson Palmer and Eli Manning). Regardless, Ryan can pick apart any defense, and the Lions allowed only five rushing touchdowns to running backs last season, second in the league. That means the chances of multiple passing touchdowns is high in this one which, of course, keeps Ryan as a top-end QB1. Wilson is once again off to a slow start this season, with just one touchdown total and less than 200 yards passing in each game. The Seahawks did little to address their offensive line woes in the offseason, and it's showing, as Wilson has been continually harassed. The Titans don't have a particularly strong pass rush, as they have just a 5.7 percent sack ratio, but there's little evidence that the Seattle offensive line can stop anyone. Still, Wilson has the talent to succeed against any team, and the Titans secondary can easily be exploited. He's a low-end QB1 for this one, but he always has the potential to go big.

 Russell Wilson has traditionally started the season slow. It's a large enough sample size, too, as this is his sixth NFL season. At some point, the Seahawks need to invest a lot of draft capital into their offensive line that cannot block to save their lives, or Wilson's. The Titans have just a 5.7 percent sack ratio, but they'll work their way through the Seahawks offensive line for a better one this week. The Titans secondary is by far the weakest point of their team and because of that, Wilson needs to remain in fantasy lineups. Of the last 13 quarterbacks to play against the Titans, only Alex Smith and Blake Bortles totaled less than 18.7 DraftKings points.

The Lions will likely try to slow down the Falcons and make this a "grindier" game than usual, but it's still going to be tough to stop this offense.Wilson's O-line is "O-ffensive," but he has been augmenting his numbers with rushing yards, which should keep him from a total dud.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Detroit is 11th against fantasy quarterbacks this year, but they will be tested by the reigning MVP of the NFL.Wilson has been one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL, he is a low-upside QB2 on the road this week.
