Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Russell Wilson is part of the new generation of dual-weaponry when it comes to quarterbacks. He can hurt you through the air, but also on the ground. His rookie season proved just that as he went for 3,118 yards and 26 touchdowns through the air while going for another 489 and 4 on the ground. The real eye-opener though was his smaller 2.6:1 touchdown to interception ratio.
Seattle is built around a very solid defense which will allow for Wilson to grow without having to force many plays due to playing from behind. Therefore expect his ratio to remain consistent with his rookie year while adding to his passing statistics.
By the end of 2012 Wilson was putting up very solid numbers in the fantasy circles and is entering 2013 widely considered a solid low-end QB1 option in deeper leagues. While nothing is guaranteed, Wilson should produce well, but without the high potential of some of the other young guns.
