Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
Even without Chandler Jones the Cardinals were still able to manufacture enough of a pass rush to disrupt Andy Dalton in his debut as a starter. Couple things - the Seahawks offensive line isn't nearly as ravaged with injury as the Cowboys and in case you needed a reminder, Russell Wilson isn't Dalton. Given the talent in the Cardinals secondary this may not be a blow up sort of performance, but his 300-yard and three touchdown weekly average to date is in play.
Passing: 257 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 31 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Some fantasy managers often look past Wilson on draft day because of the Seahawks' reputation for utilizing run-heavy offenses, but the more shrewd fantasy managers are dialed in on the Seattle triggerman's value. Even though the Seahawks fielded the NFL's fourth-best rushing attack in 2019, Wilson still closed out the season the fantasy QB4 thanks to racking up just the third 4,000-yard campaign of his career (256.9 per game) and throwing at least 30 touchdown passes (1.9 per game) for the third straight season (and four of the last five). Wilson also finished 13th in attempts despite Seattle's run-first mindset, and he racked up 300-plus rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns for the second time in the last three years, which added a nice boost to Wilson's fantasy scoring. As Wilson heads into his age-31/32 season, he continues to play at an elite level. Wilson's top-two weapons, Tyler Lockett and rising star D.K. Metcalf, will anchor a receiving corps that includes deep threat Phillip Dorsett (he'll battle David Moore for snaps) and a solid trio of tight ends with aging-but-sure-handed Greg Olsen, Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister. A reworked offensive line that surrendered the ninth-most sacks in 2019 will feature up to three new starters and can only improve. A proven fantasy force, Wilson continues to demonstrate uncommon durability, starting all 16 games in eight straight seasons. He also has finished as the fantasy QB11 or better in eight straight years. How's that for reliable?

Passing: 2678 Yards, 26 TD, 5 INT.
Rushing: 342 Yards, 1 TD.
