Fantasy Analysis
Week 2 Projections
It's concerning that Russell Wilson attempted just 20 passes in a contest that ended up coming down to the wire for a victor to emerge, though his fantasy output was salvaged by two touchdown passes. Travelling to Pittsburgh for a Week 2 clash with the Steelers and their stout rush defense, Wilson should be called upon to use his arm more frequently as he Seahawks are in danger of seeing their potent ground attack shut down. The Steelers' secondary was just shredded for 373 passing yards by the Patriots, so the matchup is in Wilson's favor so long as the Seattle coaching staff sees things the same way.
Passing: 216 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 29 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
He's a proven winner and a proven top-shelf fantasy quarterback, but Wilson's production took an alarming hit while he operated one of the NFL's most conservative run-heavy offenses last season. Wilson compiled his lowest attempt, completion and passing yardage numbers since 2013, which largely explained his uneven week-to-week numbers. Tossing a career-high 35 touchdown passes is the main reason why Wilson finished up 2018 as the fantasy QB10. A rebound campaign from Wilson, the fantasy QB1 just two years ago, seems very unlikely. There's little reason to think that the Seahawks will stray from their highly successful ground game (first in rushing yards and second in team carries last season) and increase Wilson's attempts while utilizing a thin Doug Baldwin-less receiver corps that's loaded with question marks. Will injury-prone Tyler Lockett, the new lead wideout, stay healthy and match his career-best 10 scoring grabs from last season? Will second-year pro David Moore and rookie second-rounder D.K. Metcalf step up? Don't expect Wilson's rushing production to compensate for soft passing numbers. Turning 31 in November and no longer the rushing threat that he once was, Wilson compiled career lows in carries (30 percent drop from 2017) and rushing touchdowns last year. For Wilson to extend his streak of seven straight top-11 fantasy finishes, he'll have to match his 8.2 percent touchdown rate from 2018 or at least come close to it. Durability? Entering his eighth season, Wilson, always willing to play through injuries, has never missed a game. He's riding a streak of 125 consecutive starts.

Passing: 3328 Yards, 32 TD, 7 INT.
Rushing: 424 Yards, 3 TD.
