Draft note
by John Paulsen
I’m not worried about Wilson changing teams, as good quarterbacks tend to drive their own fantasy value, and he’s walking into a great situation. He has a good receiving corps and a sharp offensive mind (new HC Nathaniel Hackett) leading the way. Wilson finished QB6 in 2020 and QB16 last season, though he had the 13th-highest per game average. He was QB4 in 2019 and QB8 in 2018, so he has a long track record of production and is likely to play in a pass-heavy offense for the first time in a while. The big question with Wilson is how much he’ll run. In the past four years, he has rushed for 23.5, 21.4, 32.1 and 13.1 yards per game. It’s not ideal if he’s running for less than 20 yards per game.

DEN QB Russell Wilson - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. San Francisco 49ers
It's been far from a fairytale start for Russell Wilson in Denver as the offense has struggled to move the ball consistently against two weak defenses in Seattle and Houston through two weeks. Wilson's 559 passing yards through two games is fine, but his fantasy performance has been disappointing in that he only has two passing touchdowns and virtually nothing in the rushing department to this point. Some of the Broncos' issues stem from a rookie coaching staff, but Wilson's play in 2022 has looked similar to the rough patches he endured in 2020 and 2021 rather than the efficient deep ball passer we have become accustomed to. The 49ers travel to Denver as an opponent with a strong defense and one familiar with Wilson from his decade in Seattle. While the Broncos are unlikely to struggle like they have so far all season, Wilson's rough play to open the season and the difficult matchup make him nothing more than a borderline starter in single-QB leagues.
