Russell Wilson Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Wilson has turned in 3 straight top-10 fantasy finishes.

2017 showed us Wilson’s ceiling. That Seattle team ranked 11th in pass rate and 14th in pass attempts. Wilson turned a career-high 553 passes into 3,983 yards and 34 TDs. He added a 95-586-3 rushing line to finish #1 among QBs in fantasy points. And that was just with th…
