 Aaron Rodgers, GB (Bye: 7)

Outlook: The consensus No.1 fantasy quarterback heading into the 2017 season, Aaron Rodgers certainly looked the part over the first five contests, but a devastating shoulder injury torpedoed the season for Rodgers, the Packers, and any fantasy owners caught in the aftermath.

Green Bay's gunslinger returns with a healthy wing, but comes back to a bit of a turnover in the receiver room (as well as at quarterback coach). Much to the chagrin of Rodgers, Jordy Nelson is gone, and although a talented group remains, Nelson and Rodgers had an uncanny connection during their career together, especially in the red zone. The Pack signed Jimmy Graham to fill that void, but this offense has struggled to really get the tight end involved in recent years, and nothing can replace the chemistry Nelson had with his QB, as they often used improvisation and line of scrimmage adjustments to score inside the 10.

All in all I think there's enough talent on this offense to make Rodgers a lock for top-3 status. How well he meshes with Graham, and how well a suspect right side of the line blocks will go a long way to determine just how high the quarterback's ceiling is. I think this will be one of the most improved divisions in the NFL, and the fantasy quarterback pool is deep enough where I'm not sure Rodgers will be the weekly advantage he has in the past, but make no mistake, this #12 in green and gold is still the best in the league.


 Russell Wilson, SEA (Bye: 7)

2018 (Projected)SEA 325 524 3,880 28 10 88 492 3 373.2  

Outlook: Seattle's leader, quarterback Russell Wilson is back for his seventh NFL season and is the reigning points leader from the 2017 fantasy football season. Wilson exceeded expectations, tying his career high with 34 touchdowns. While he also tied a career high with 11 interceptions, that's still extremely low and he's among the least turnover-prone quarterbacks in the history of the game.

While he's still considered a high-end option at the position, there are some concerns heading into 2018. Wilson lost two of his top targets this offseason, most notably tight end Jimmy Graham, but also wide receiver Paul Richardson. The loss of Graham will likely be seen in the red zone where he was the most-targeted player (26) in all of football in 2017, which he converted for an impressive 10 touchdowns. Unfortunately Seattle hasn't added much of consequence to replace those players. Former third-round pick, tight end Nick Vannett will be entering his third season as a pro and his 6'6", 261-pound frame does give him the possibility of being a red zone weapon, but he's still very raw and hasn't proven much on the field. The team also added Brandon Marshall, who has historically had excellent red zone efficiency, but there's a real chance that he doesn't even make the 53-man roster.

On the positive side, Seattle has lost a lot on defense while the rest of the division appears to be passing them by, and the Seahawks will almost certainly be in more pass-heavy situations this season than they have been throughout the early part of Wilson's career. Wilson also continues to have a high weekly floor due to rushing numbers. He has averaged 34.1 yards per game rushing over the course of his career and actually exceeded that with 36.6 yards per game rushing in 2017. It's worth considering that many quarterbacks begin to slow down rushing as they get older, but Wilson is still quite mobile and his experience has helped him become smarter about when to run the ball, as opposed to just taking off and running as soon as his first option is covered.

Wilson is a very safe option to finish as mid-to-high-level QB1 but he's being drafted as the fourth, fifth or even sixth quarterback off the board in many drafts, which could make him a value, particularly in drafts where quarterbacks slide down the board overall.

2018 (Projected)NO 400 580 4,585 28 15 4 22 1 349.5  

Outlook: At first glance, Brees' QB11 finish would appear to be adequate, but 2017 was a true disappointment for the future hall of fame quarterback. After being selected as the third overall QB in fantasy drafts, Brees fell well short of his expectations. Despite finishing within the QB1 range, he only managed to finish as a top 12 QB in four of his 16 starts, well short of his 60 percent average over the previous five seasons.

But there's reason for optimism, despite concerns about age, changing scheme, and improving defense. 2017 marked Brees' lowest number of pass attempts since 2009 when he had one fewer start and his lowest number of TD passes since 2003. Compared to 2016, Brees attempted more than 8 fewer passes per game. With Mark Ingram's suspension and the seeming reluctance to over-utilize Alvin Kamara during that suspension, Brees will likely see his pass attempts rise slightly. If Brees can regain 3 to 4 passes per game, he'll likely experience some positive TD regression as well.

After mortgaging their 2019 first round pick, it's evident that New Orleans believes they need to win-now during Brees' last remaining seasons. Barring a Peyton Manning-like fall in efficiency, Brees remains a QB1 with top five potential, however, his acquisition cost will likely be close to his finish so the value is slightly limited.
