We seemed to go back to the 2019 Seahawks offense in Week 11, where Wilson threw the ball just 28 times. Lack of competition was part of the cause, but you have to wonder if the coaching staff wants to slowly get back to the run-heavy ways after Wilson turned the ball over seven times in the previous four games. On top of that, the running backs are all going to be healthy for this game. Still, Wilson has thrown for two-plus touchdowns in 9-of-10 games and has rushed for 42-plus yards in four of his last six games, so his fantasy value remains in the elite conversation, as he's still posted 20-plus fantasy points in 9-of-10 games. When you think of the Eagles defense, do you think of an elite unit? Probably not, but they're close from an efficiency standpoint. There are just six teams who've allowed fewer than 1.30 PPR points per offensive play and the Eagles are one of them. The good news is that they've allowed 6.44 yards per carry to quarterbacks, which is easily the highest mark in football. Because of that, quarterbacks have totaled 322 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Wilson is likely going to have to do some dancing, as the Eagles do generate a sack on 9.39 percent of dropbacks, the third-highest mark in the league. Because of that, teams have thrown the ball just 53.5 percent of the time against them, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in the league. When they do throw, the Eagles have allowed 7.12 yards per attempt, which is essentially the league average. They've also benefitted from touchdown-luck, allowing a touchdown on just 3.96 percent of attempts, which ranks seventh-lowest. One thing you need to know, though, is that the Eagles have had one of the easiest schedules in the league, and that's proven by the fact that quarterbacks have averaged 4.8 percent more fantasy points against them than they have in their other games. Go ahead and start Wilson as a QB1 and feel relatively confident about it.

Russell Wilson leads Seahawks to Week 11 win, throws 2 TD's

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 23-of-28 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 42 yards on 10 carries in the Seahawks' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson didn't light up the scoreboard, but he was very efficient on Thursday night with only five incompletions. A couple of the incompletions came from WR DK Metcalf - who missed a sure touchdown in the back of the endzone that hit his helmet and another big play in the red zone that went off his fingertips. Wilson worked the pocket like a magician and was able to fend off a late Cardinals run to earn the win. Wilson has a great matchup next week against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in Week 12.
