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.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
The only risk this week with Wilson is that he may not be asked to do much at home against the Raiders.
 
  
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.
Rivers has a tough matchup this week, the Miami Dolphins allow the eighth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks and Miami is a long trip with an early start time for Rivers.
