Russell Wilson didn't have to put up big numbers to take down the Cowboys on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Seahawks won big over the Cowboys in Week 2, but Russell Wilson didn't have to put up huge numbers along the way. The rookie quarterback completed 15 of 20 passes for just 151 yards and a touchdown to go along with 28 yards rushing on the afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson is doing exactly what Pete Carroll is asking of him. Reminiscent of the 49ers 2011 season, Wilson is leading conservative, mistake-free attack that relies on the ground game. Marshawn Lynch paved the way to victory with 122 rushing yards, making it easy for Wilson to handle the offense. He's not going to be putting up huge numbers right away, so if he is on your fantasy team, you'll want to take a wait and see approach. Don't plan on starting Wilson until he puts up bigger numbers.
