The Cardinals are just 14th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Hawks are likely to be playing with a short field, due to a quarterback situation that is likely to result in a ton of turnovers. Wilson has QB2 value in what figures to be a low-scoring game.
The 49ers allow the fifth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks, Rivers is a QB2 with little upside this week.
