Wilson is once again off to a slow start this season, with just one touchdown total and less than 200 yards passing in each game. The Seahawks did little to address their offensive line woes in the offseason, and it's showing, as Wilson has been continually harassed. The Titans don't have a particularly strong pass rush, as they have just a 5.7 percent sack ratio, but there's little evidence that the Seattle offensive line can stop anyone. Still, Wilson has the talent to succeed against any team, and the Titans secondary can easily be exploited. He's a low-end QB1 for this one, but he always has the potential to go big.Winston was efficient in the Buccaneers' Week 2 win over the Bears, but he was far from spectacular, completing 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown. His performance is unlikely to get much better this week in Minnesota against a tough Vikings defense that held Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger to a combined 33 fantasy points. The Vikings are incredibly stingy against opposing QBs, rarely allowing a 300-yard passer, and it's unlikely that Winston will break that trend. In a tough road matchup, he's likely not a start for you outside of two-quarterback leagues.
Mike Tagliere

Russell Wilson has traditionally started the season slow. It's a large enough sample size, too, as this is his sixth NFL season. At some point, the Seahawks need to invest a lot of draft capital into their offensive line that cannot block to save their lives, or Wilson's. The Titans have just a 5.7 percent sack ratio, but they'll work their way through the Seahawks offensive line for a better one this week. The Titans secondary is by far the weakest point of their team and because of that, Wilson needs to remain in fantasy lineups. Of the last 13 quarterbacks to play against the Titans, only Alex Smith and Blake Bortles totaled less than 18.7 DraftKings points.

Wilson's O-line is "O-ffensive," but he has been augmenting his numbers with rushing yards, which should keep him from a total dud. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Wilson has been one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL, he is a low-upside QB2 on the road this week.Minnesota is only 17th against fantasy quarterbacks and they have another tough matchup this week, which makes Winston a viable QB1 this week.
