Draft note
by John Paulsen
Wilson has three Top 3 finishes in the last five years, but the Seahawks’ run-heavy ways have made Wilson’s scoring heavily dependent on his ability to throw touchdowns. His 8.2% touchdown rate was the seventh highest since 2000. Patrick Mahomes was one of the seven, so excluding him, the other five quarterbacks experienced a drop of 34.7% in their touchdown rate, which would put Wilson at 5.3%, well below his career average of 6.0%. I feel comfortable penciling in Wilson for another 29-30 passing touchdowns, but unless the Seahawks increase his passing volume (unlikely, from the sound of it) or he runs more frequently, he’s going to have a tough time posting Top 5 numbers.

SEA QB Russell Wilson - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Pittsburgh
It was an efficient opener for Russell Wilson who only threw 20 passes for 190 yards. He did throw two touchdowns and did not turn the ball over. But those numbers were a far cry from what they have been in recent seasons.

Things won't get easier as they have to travel to Pittsburgh is ranked 12th in aFPA to quarterbacks after one week and considering that QB last week was Tom Brady, the Steelers pass defense should be decent this season.

Wilson only rates a QB2 for Week 2. Keep him on the bench. The Seahawks want to run first which explains the low pass attempts. That could be the trend this season which hurts Wilson's fantasy stock.
