Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
Seattle has been wracked with injuries, played lousy in stretches and have a 2 1/2 game lead over Arizona for the AFC West lead with 5 games to go. At the beginning of the year, Cam Newton and Russell Wilson sat near the top of all the QB rankings and projections and we now know that has not come true. All this game will really settle is which one is the best QB this week. Play Wilson and expect a tough game with Wilson ending up with a relatively low score, but with good upside, making him worth the start but his floor is pretty low.
Passsing: 262 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 24 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Isn't this guy too short to play quarterback in the NFL? Averaging just 235.3 passing yards, 1.1 touchdown passes and 39.4 rushing yards per game with no rushing touchdowns scored through the first 10 weeks of 2015, Wilson looked like a fantasy bust. However, when Marshawn Lynch went down with a season-ending injury in Week 11, the Seahawks had no choice but to unleash Wilson - and he absolutely dominated. With a big assist from go-to target Doug Baldwin, Wilson averaged 272.3 passing yards and 3.4 touchdowns per game in seven season-ending contests on his way to racking up career high passing numbers across the board and finishing as the third-rated fantasy quarterback. Will the Seahawks revert back to their run-first ways with Lynch's (retired) replacement Thomas Rawls? No. The Seattle offense now belongs to Wilson, who will turn 28 during the season. With the Seahawks emphasizing a potent Wilson-led passing attack, an uptick in his passing production is virtually guaranteed. Baldwin leads a blue-collar wideout corps that includes rising-star Tyler Lockett, who is coming off a great rookie season, and Jermaine Kearse. If Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) returns fully healthy, he's too good not to rebound from a very disappointing 2015 Seattle debut. Unfortunately, it looks like more passing from the ridiculously durable Wilson (he hasn't missed a start in four seasons) will put a lower ceiling on his rushing production.

Passing: 1246 Yards, 8 TD, 3 INT.
Rushing: 126 Yards, 1 TD.
