It was both a good and a bad thing that Russell Wilson, to use the words of coach Pete Carroll, was able to run “all over the place” Sunday in a 14-5 loss at Tampa Bay.
The good was the obvious that it was another continuing sign of Wilson’s return to health and normalcy that he had 80 yards on eight carries — one more yard rushing than he had for the entire season coming into the game.
What was Wilson’s first official run of the game came in the second quarter and went for 17 yards — eight yards longer than any run he had had this season until Sunday.
So yep, it appears Wilson is pretty much back to normal after the trio of injuries that hampered him the first seven weeks of the season.
“Yeah, it felt great out there running,” Wilson said.
It's more good news for fantasy owners who have been hurt by a banged up Wilson most of this year. The Seattle offense seemed to be making strides before producing just three points this week in a 14-5 loss to Tampa.

Week 7 at New York Giants
Russell Wilson is coming off a bye week with mixed results through his first five starts. Although the numbers were better the last three games, he has had issues with protection from his offensive line and has attempted 37 or more passes in a game only three times. In the last two games, his passing yardage was decent, but he threw 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions, so again, mixed results.
Wilson will face a Giants defense ranked 18th in aFPA to quarterbacks. The Giants' pass defense seems to be playing better, but Wilson should put up decent numbers in Week 7. Start Wilson as a solid QB1 at home this Sunday.
