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.
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.
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 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.
The allure of the running quarterback has existed for years. Randall Cunningham was one of the first true dual-threats at the position in the 1980's and '90s, an era that also produced all-time great scramblers like Steve Young and John Elway. It was the arrival of Michael Vick in the NFL as the No. 1 pick... Read More
