Fantasy Analysis
Week 3 Projections
Playing San Francisco at home, look for Wilson to throw and run a little better than he did last week against the Rams. To be a fantasy asset, he needs to throw some TD passes. His 1/1 TD/INT ratio for the first two weeks will not endear him to his owners. Look for Wilson to at least approach his normal playing level. He will certainly be below it, but you can feel good starting him if you do not have a strong backup.
Passsing: 225 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 36 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: 3561 Yards, 25 TD, 9 INT.
Rushing: 458 Yards, 3 TD.
