Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson leads his offense against the St. Louis Rams - Andy Lyons

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 win over the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 win over the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football. Wilson added three carries for 16 yards. The Seahawks were lucky Wilson got  something going in the passing game as their run game was shut down all night by the Rams defense. Wilson was sacked seven times for 48 yards. On the year, Wilson has thrown for 1628 yards and 13 touchdowns while adding 339 yards on the ground.

Fantasy impact: Wilson doesn't typically put up big numbers in the passing game but he is a dual threat quarterback who does put up some good numbers overall. Always a threat to score with his legs, Monday night Wilson found Golden Tate twice on a night when the Seahawks couldn't run the football. He is a solid fantasy start in all leagues. The Seahawks face the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9.
