Only one player has been a top-five fantasy quarterback each of the past two seasons and it was Wilson. In fact, he was top three each season! You won't have to draft a great backup QB and you know what you are getting if you draft Wilson in the third and it is a QB that gives you a chance to win your league.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed 5 of 11 passes for 77 yards in a 11-18 losing effort against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Russell Wilson will cede most of his playing time to the young guys behind him as the Seahawks attempt to find a capable backup. Wilson is still locked in as a top 5 fantasy quarterback.

Last season, Russell Wilson finally had the opportunity to throw the ball more last season and he set personal records last year in passing attempts (483), completions (329), touchdowns (34) and passing yards (4,024). He is a top 5 fantasy QB with top 3 potential.

To start the 2015 season, Wilson was not a good fantasy footballer. His first nine games were why I didn't like him as a Top-5 fantasy quarterback. His rushing yards and touchdowns were fairly haphazard, and he often wasn't called on to put up fantasy numbers on a weekly basis. But then my reasoning flew out the window, as Wilson dominated the final seven games of the season, moving himself up to the No. 3 overall quarterback, exactly where he finished the season before. Did Wilson screw you in the first half of the 2015 season? By all means, yes, but then he absolutely won games for you in the second half. That inconsistency is scary, but it's not Wilson's doing. He has the ability to put big fantasy numbers up each week, but often the game plan was not conducive to him getting the pass attempts and rushing yards we need. Will that change in 2016? I think so. He is a very good quarterback. There's really no denying that now, and Pete Carroll will be much quicker to unleash him on defenses

Dual threat QB was fantasy gold last year. 4,022 passing yards, 554 rushing yards, 35 total TDs. Continued rise in production likely. Could contend for top fantasy QB in '16.

Poor Offensive line hasn't hampered his statistical output thus far.

Rich Hribar joins Josh Norris to see if Cam Newton and Russell Wilson can equal last season's output.

Proved he can carry a team with his arm in '15 (272.3 pass YPG, 24 TD passes in final 7 games) - No. 3 QB in Y! game each of past 2 seasons

Missing Jimmy Graham early in the season could hurt a bit, but Tyler Lockett could fill a lot of the void with continued progress.

Seahawks should continue to evolve as a passing offense.

Wilson's insane tear last year can't be dismissed, nor can Seattle's slow shift to a more pass friendly system. His upside continues to make him a legit top-5 threat.

Wilson had a ridiculous 24 touchdown passes and one interception in his final seven games. With his ability to run the ball, he is a sure-fire QB1.
