Russell Wilson passes for 320 yards in win versus Panthers, posts a modest fantasy point total

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks budding star eclipsed the 300-yard mark despite being pressured most of the afternoon, and also threw for a touchdown and lost a fumble. We break down the fantasy implications.

It took Wilson some time to get going, as he threw for just 122 yards at the half, but he opened things up later with a 43-yard touchdown strike to Jermaine Kearse. It would be his only touchdown of the game, but it was enough to dispatch the Panthers by a final score of 12-7.

Fantasy Spin: It wasn't the dominant fantasy effort owners have come to expect from mobile quarterbacks such as Wilson, but it was impressive given the circumstances. The second-year QB was pressured routinely by Carolina's front seven, and fumbled on one occasion, but he still managed to eclipse the 300-yard mark without the aid of an effective running game.
