Plagued by subpar QB play for years, the Broncos viewed Russell Wilson as a potential savior and gave up a bevy of draft capital to acquire him. Wilson's first year in Denver was bitterly disappointing, as he turned in the worst season of his 11-year career, with career lows in completion percentage (60.5%), passer rating (84.4) and touchdown passes (16), and a career high in sacks (55). Once a dangerous runner, Wilson doesn't run as much these days, and he doesn't escape pressure as easily. It's possible that this accomplished passer has a bounce-back season in 2023 under the tutelage of Sean Payton, but we can't assume that the 34-year-old Wilson will return to something close to vintage form. Approach with caution.

Russell Wilson undergoes knee surgery

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, QB Russell Wilson underwent arthroscopic knee surgery following the 2022 season to fix an issue that had nagged for multiple years.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson is expected to be ready for OTAs and at full health for the 2023 season, according to Rapoport, and he is already back to working out. Wilson struggled heavily in his first season in Denver, completing a career-low percentage of passes, touchdowns and adjusted yards gained per pass attempt. With health on his side, and a new head coach in Sean Payton, Wilson, who was fantasy QB16, could maybe vault himself back into the QB1 range.
