Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
The loss of Percy Harvin makes the headlines but it's the injuries to the line and tight ends that are the issue. Seattle doesn't want to throw 36 times like they did last week. Carolina is vulnerable to the run which is where the Seahawks will want to attack. Still, Wilson has just about become 'must-start' material.
For the second year in a row, the athletic dual-threat Wilson didn't wow us with his passing or rushing numbers, but he still finished 2013 as the ninth-most productive fantasy quarterback. Wilson averaged a respectable 209.8 passing yards and 1.8 touchdown passes per game with just two 300-yard outings. His 26 scoring strikes tied for ninth among all quarterbacks, but Wilson's 407 pass attempts ranked just 22nd. In the rushing department, Wilson again finished in the top three among all quarterbacks in rushing yards, which provided a small boost to his fantasy production most weeks. Consistency is Wilson's fantasy calling card; he scored more than 14 fantasy points in 12 of 16 regular-season games. Although a small uptick in Wilson's passing statistics is likely with a healthy Percy Harvin on the field (he missed most of 2013 due to hip surgery), don't expect the Seahawks to start letting Wilson air it out anytime soon. They won a Super Bowl by relying on an impressive running attack and an elite defense, so why change up that formula? Unless the team needs Wilson to ratchet up the passing game, he will operate as a game-manger most weeks. Doug Baldwin is tentatively expected to replace Golden Tate (Lions) in the starting lineup. Sidney Rice and Jermaine Kearse are in the receiver corps mix, too. The bottom line: consider Wilson a steady-but-not-spectacular low-end fantasy QB1.
though. What a win. Glad they are letting the kid(DangerRuss) air it out a bit more. Can't play QB in this league without the full playbook and stretching the field.
Hah.. I love Richard Sherman's bravado and persona, but certainly don't want to ...
