Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns in an epic performance against the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football in Week 13. Wilson also lead the Seahawks in rushing with eight carries for 47 yards. Going into the Monday Night game, Wilson was averaging 198.3 yards passing and had 19 passing touchdowns and only six interceptions. He was averaging 37.2 rushing yards per game and had one rushing touchdown.
Fantasy impact: One game won't silence his critics but Wilson went a long way to dispel the notion that he can't carry the Seahawks offense. It was a truly magical performance and he accounted for 347 of the Seahawks 429 offensive yards. Russell is a dependable fantasy option who rarely turns the ball over and gives you steady production. He should be a solid option going into the fantasy playoffs. Unfortunately, the Seahawks face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14. They are giving up the fourth least fantasy points to quarterbacks.
