Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was way off to start Thursday's game against the Packers, but he found his stride in the second half to lead Seattle to the victory. Wilson was just 3-for-8 in the first quarter, but he completed 78% of the rest of his passes on the evening. His 225 yards and paltry 7.3 YPA paled in comparison to his counterpart for Green Bay, but he finished with a pair of touchdown passes, a critical scramble for a first down, and some amazing throws when the game was on the line. He may not win the MVP, but Wilson's on pace to top 35 touchdowns with less than 10 interceptions with a passer rating over 110. He's still a stud.
Completing 26 passes against LA on Sunday, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson enjoyed his most prolific showing this season. Unfortunately, it wasn't actually a terribly good showing by Wilson. While he completed more passes than in any other game this season, Wilson also posted his lowest YPA of the year and regularly missed open receivers in favor of checking the ball down. After a string of three good performances in a row, it was a disappointing game for Wilson, though he almost snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by having one last chance at the end.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been a master of efficiency so far this season, bringing back memories of his Super Bowl-winning year. Wilson hasn't thrown more than 23 passes in any of his last three games, but he's chucked nine touchdowns in that time. On the season, he's got a TD percentage of 8.8%, third best in the NFL, and his interception percentage is just 2.2%. He's one of just three QBs with a TD% above 7% and an INT% below 3%, and the other two are Patrick Mahomes and Philip Rivers, two of the front-runners for MVP. That said, he's facing a defense that is allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks over the last four weeks. Wilson will have his work cut out for him this week.
