Russell Wilson comes through for Seahawks, fantasy owners


The Seahawks quarterback had a big game Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

His yardage wasn't extraordinary, but Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson still had a big game Thursday night in Arizona. Wilson threw for three touchdowns and no interceptions as the Seahawks beat the Arizona Cardinals 34-22.

Wilson completed 18 of his 29 pass attempts for 235 yards. He added 29 rushing yards on eight carries, though he did lose two fumbles in the game. Wilson completed touchdown passes to wide receiver Sidney Rice and tight ends Zach Miller and Kellen Davis -- one in each of the first three quarters -- as the Seahawks led beginning-to-end.

Fantasy impact: Wilson has been on the disappointing side of fantasy so far this season, with fewer than two passing touchdowns in four of his first six games. This was something of a get-right game for him, though, and brought his season touchdown total to 11.

The Seahawks' next few games are against the Rams, Buccaneers, Falcons, and Vikings, before their Week 12 bye, so there is reason to think this could be the start of an uptick for Wilson.
