He got off to an ugly start last week, but Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson still came through with the fantasy points by the final buzzer. Wilson threw three interceptions in a game for the first time in 364 days, but he also tossed three touchdowns in Seattle's loss to the Jaguars in Week 14. His 271 passing yards were his highest total in five weeks, and he chipped in 50 more rushing yards as well. In Week 15, he'll have to square off against a Rams defense that has allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. That said, they've recently been exploited and have given up the ninth most points over the last four weeks. Wilson is still the backbone of Seattle's offense, and with their defense banged up, he'll have to be pushing to put points on the board as fast as possible. Expect him to still put up solid to great numbers from a fantasy perspective.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is a solid finalist for the MVP this season, and that's why he's a must-start against Jacksonville this week. Unfortunately, he's going to have to be at the top of his game because not only is it an East coast game, but it's against the top-rated defense in the league. The smallest glimmers of hope exist because Jacksonville has been slightly less effective against opposing QBs recently (fifth over the last four weeks instead of first). Wilson is truly a special and unique type of quarterback, and Seattle has been on a bit of a run lately. Realistically, it's the fantasy playoffs pretty much everywhere, and Wilson is one of the few players that can single-handedly win a week. He's got to be started.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson shocked the nation on Sunday Night Football as he took it to the vaunted Philadelphia defense. With no noticeable offensive line to speak of, Wilson put on his very best slippery suit and completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns. He also chipped in another 31 yards on the ground, though he didn't find the end zone this week. Wilson is now a serious MVP contender, as he's totaled 26 passing TDs to just eight interceptions and jogged in three more touchdowns on the ground.
