Russell Wilson gave a pretty sneak peek of what he could do in fantasy. Is it time to take notice? We break down the fantasy implications.
Russell Wilson did some serious damage in the second half and finished his first preseason to the tune of 12-of-16 passing for 124 yards and while rushing for 59 yards on three carries.
Analysis: This is impressive stuff from one of the best players in college football last year. He threw a pick, so his passer rating was 91.7 in this one. The Badger scored on a wonderful bootleg in this contest and was very aware of his surroundings in the pocket. While we'd like to say he's on the radar in fantasy leagues, he has a long way to go. He did play against a third-team defense and never really saw much pressure from the Titans. Matt Flynn is still the favorite to be the starter, but Wilson may be in his rear-view mirror.
