Russell Wilson emerging as legitimate fantasy option

Jonathan Daniel

Russell Wilson had an inspiring performance in Seattle's comeback win over the Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had a coming-out party against the Bears in Week 13. On the road in a hostile environment, Wilson completed 23-of-37 passes for 293 yards and two TDs, and added 71 yards on nine scrambles.

Wilson had perhaps his best performance of the season, leading the Seahawks to a 23-17 overtime win.

Fantasy Impact: You would never know Wilson was a rookie watching him pick apart the stiff Bears defense. He engineered a brilliant 97-yard drive to take the lead late in the fourth quarter, and led the game-winning drive in OT.

Wilson is quietly emerging as a quality QB2 in fantasy as the coaches are taking the training wheels off. He's a nice fantasy option down the stretch with the Seahawks making a playoff run.
