Week 3 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Russell Wilson was running for his life last Monday and he has now been sacked 12 times in two games. His overall numbers have been affected by this as he has averaged 262 passing yards and has thrown five touchdowns and three interceptions. He has fumbled the ball four times (only lost one) and just doesn't look comfortable.
Wilson will face a Dallas defense this week that is ranked 15th in aFPA to quarterbacks, however, the Cowboys' pass rush is expected to give Wilson trouble. There is no doubt Wilson is capable of putting up similar numbers to what he has done the past couple of seasons, however, without WR Doug Baldwin and a leaky offensive line, Wilson's fantasy standing has taken a hit.
For the second straight week, Wilson ranks a high-end QB2 so he probably is better off on the bench for Week 3. Keep an eye on the offensive line—if it improves it will elevate Wilson's ranking.
