Russell Wilson entered 2016 as the only player to post back to back Top-3 fantasy QB seasons. His injury slowed him down quite a bit, but he was still a QB1. You may be tempted to assume he will return back to those Top-3 days now that he is healthy, but he seems unlikely to ever run the ball again as much as he used to. What's more, is that the Seahawks did nothing to address their worst offensive line in the league or their mediocre receiver core.

Russell Wilson '100 percent' healthy?

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (ankle/ MCL) told the media that he feels fully healthy at OTAs. “I feel great, my body is 100 percent,” Wilson said via the Seahawks Wire. “Running fast, feeling strong, throwing the ball well and all that. It’s been a great offseason.”

Fantasy Impact

Wilson, who dealt with lingering ankle and MCL injuries for the duration of the 2016 season, told the press he feels "100 percent" healthy at OTAs. Although he did not miss any games last season, Wilson's production reflected his health not being fully intact. His mobility was clearly affected by the injuries as he posted career lows in rushing attempts (72), yards (259) and touchdowns (one). As a mobile quarterback, Wilson relies heavily on his ability to scramble and extend plays with his legs. If he can make a full recovery, Wilson could return to the high-end QB1 tier as a must-start option for the 2017 fantasy football campaign.
