Examining Russell Wilson's Long-Term Fantasy Value After Week 3
Russell Wilson had a monster game in Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he's a safe bet as your fantasy starter the rest of the way in 2013.
The second-year quarterback completed 14 of his 21 attempts on Sunday for 202 yards with four touchdowns and one interception, leading the Seahawks to an easy 38-10 win at home.
He completed passes to seven different receivers before being replaced by Tarvaris Jackson when the game got out of hand.
The Jaguars are horrible, yes, and success against Jacksonville's defense has come easy for all three teams it has faced so far in 2013. Some might assume that Wilson's numbers were therefore inflated, but looking at the big picture it's clear he is capable of putting up big numbers on a weekly basis.
Since leading the Seahawks to victory over the New England Patriots last season, Wilson has been an incredibly efficient and explosive playmaker for Seattle. He's thrown 27 touchdowns in his last 14 games, while throwing just six interceptions.
The Seahawks are a run-first team with Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, but Wilson has consistently been able to convert on big passing plays via the play-action pass.
Up next for Wilson and the Seahawks are the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. All three teams have shown the ability to shut down opposing rushing attacks this year, which should lead to more passing plays for Wilson.
That said, regardless of which team he's facing, Wilson is a must-start quarterback this year.
