The only risk this week with Wilson is that he may not be asked to do much at home against the Raiders.
St. Louis' defense with just 3 picks on the season (and the 2nd most rushing yards by QBs against) seems like the perfect get right game for Kap coming out of the bye.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Raiders are 12th against fantasy quarterbacks, but they are going to have a tough time stopping Wilson in Seattle.
The Rams are just 25th against fantasy quarterbacks this year and the 49ers are coming off their bye week. Kaepernick has low QB1 appeal in a favorable matchup.

With Wilson struggling of late, what's the best cure for a team looking for an identity? How about what got you to the promised land a year ago? Seattle needs to lean on the running game and they should start this week. Wilson should be better doing less.
