Jon Collins

With a 13:0 TD:INT ratio in last 4, Brady and Pats O look healthy and in sync... I'm not saying they have enough to win this game, but against the league's 8th most generous QB defense he should pile up passing yards if nothing else.
The only risk this week with Wilson is that he may not be asked to do much at home against the Raiders.

Denver is 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, but I still expect Manning to have bigger fantasy numbers with his better supporting cast.
The Raiders are 12th against fantasy quarterbacks, but they are going to have a tough time stopping Wilson in Seattle.

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.
