Russell Wilson: Week 8 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor October 23, 2013

Over his last three games, Wilson has thrown for an average of 234 yards per game with five touchdowns to just one interception. While he should be able to easily pad those numbers this week, his efforts may not be needed as much given the soft match-up with the Rams this week.
The Rams will be without Sam Bradford at the helm so the Seattle defense should be in full control of this game. Couple that with running back Marshawn Lynch facing a Rams defense that gives up 126.4 rushing yards per game and there could be very little use for Wilson to do anything but be a game-manager. It's still a strong match-up for Wilson, but owners shouldn't expect a very pass-heavy game plan.
