In this week's edition of "Don't Overvalue Fantasy Performances Against the Jacksonville Jaguars," we feature Russell Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks' talented second-year quarterback handled the Jags secondary with ease in Week 3, completing 14 of 21 throws for 202 yards, four touchdowns and one interception before being taken out in the third quarter. He also added 14 yards rushing. 

There's no doubt Wilson is capable of these performances every time he steps onto the gridiron. He was one of the best QBs in the league during the second half of 2012, and his skill set can lead to major statistical outputs. 

Just don't buy, trade or valueor even change your opinion ofa player based on what he does against the Jaguars, who look about as lifeless as Bernie

So, when it comes to Wilson, he still remains just outside the top 10 among quarterbacks, which, in many leagues, still makes him a week-to-week starter. 

He's just not quite elite in the fantasy world.    

There are very few players in the NFL I enjoy watching more than Wilson, and his talent is undeniable. But he's part of a team that runs the ball a lot and doesn't get into many shootouts because of its elite defense. 

As we saw in the two weeks in which the 'Hawks didn't play the Jaguars, that doesn't always lead to consistent fantasy success.
