Russell Wilson throws for 288 yards and 5 TDs in a close one in Week 2

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-28 passes for 288 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed five times for 39 yards in the 35-30 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson followed up his flawless Week 1 performance with another gem on Sunday Night Football in Week 2 against the Patriots. He has now completed 82.5 percent of his pass attempts through two games, averaging 305 yards and 4.5 touchdowns through the air in each game. He'll look to continue his MVP-like start to the season when the Seahawks play host to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Russell Wilson almost perfect, tosses four TDs in Week 1 win over Atlanta

Russell Wilson completed 31-of-35 passes for 322 yards and four touchdowns as the Seahawks cruise past the Falcons 38-25 in the season opener.

Fantasy Impact

He also added 29 yards on three rushes in this game. Wilson was nearly perfect against the Falcons, finishing with a QB rating of 143.1. As usual, he looked poised and in command of the offense throughout the game. If Wilson continues to put up lines like this throughout the season, he's going to finish the year as a top-5 fantasy quarterback once again. He'll face a tougher test in Week 2 when the Seahawks host the Patriots on Sunday Night Football.

Russell Wilson wants the Seahawks to play more aggressive on offense

Russell Wilson says he would like the Seahawks to be more aggressive on offense this season.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson added that he wants the team to "treat every quarter like it's the fourth quarter." We agree, Russ. Seattle has been known to run the ball early and often and only rely on Wilson's passing prowess while trailing in the fourth. The Super Bowl champ would be an even more elite fantasy option if the Seahawks opened up the playbook a bit, but it's unclear if they're actually planning to.

Russell Wilson wants to play more 'up-tempo' in 2020

Russell Wilson spoke openly about wanting Seattle's offense to be more up-tempo next season.

Fantasy Impact

Seattle has been team #EstablishTheRun for as long as Wilson has been their quarterback. In 2019 they ranked 24th in situation-neutral pace. Despite that slow pace the offense ranked ninth in the league in points scored. If the Seahawks ever opened up their playbook to let Wilson shine a bit more it would do wonders for his fantasy value. It'll be difficult to project that happening until we hear the coaches express the same desire, however.

Russell Wilson nearly leads Seattle to comeback win

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown as the Seahawks fell to the Packers in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson also scrambled seven times for 64 yards. He threw just one touchdown but played magnificently. The Seahawks likely would've had a better chance of winning if they unleashed Wilson earlier in the game, as opposed to continuing to try and "establish the run". Wilson will enter 2020 as an elite fantasy quarterback once again.
