Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson delivered another below-average fantasy performance, throwing for 221 yards, a touchdown and a pair of interceptions in the team's victory over the Carolina Panthers. Wilson also rushed for 12 yards on five attempts. While he has been steadily improving, Wilson has struggled early on in his rookie season, and the Seahawks' passing offense has been mediocre as a result.
Fantasy Impact: Russell Wilson hasn't been a reliable fantasy football option. While his rushing ability presents an interesting dynamic, Wilson has a long way to go in his development as a passer before he can be considered a reliable fantasy option. The preseason hype has died down considerably through the first five weeks of the season.
