Wilson has thrown for 2 touchdowns in each game this season. Enjoying a Bye Week 4, he is now fully rested and ready to take aim at the Redskins. Will he continue with his touchdown streak? Probably not. I am a much bigger fan of Wilson for NFL purposes rather than fantasy. Look at the Seattle signal-caller to perform as a QB2 in deeper leagues this week.
Outside of Week 1, Dalton hasn't attempted more than 23 pass attempts in any given game. Week 5 pits the Bengals against the Patriots. Look for more of the same as New Englands' secondary can wreak havoc but they most definitely can be ran on.

Washington allows the sixth most fantasy points, Wilson should have QB1 upside coming off his bye week.
