- Stephen A. blasts Hackett for not rolling with Russ late
News: 16 hours agoWilson completed 17 of 25 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-23 loss to the Raiders. He added 29 rushing yards and a TD on four carries.
Spin: He was pretty much the whole show for the Broncos, as Wilson led the club in rushing yards and none of his receivers managed more than 55. The performance was still a step forward for the quarterback, who tossed multiple TDs for the first time with Denver as he hit Courtland Sutton for a five-yard score in the first quarter and Jerry Jeudy for a 20-yard strike just before halftime. Wilson will look to build on this effort in Week 5 against the Colts.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Wilson was traded to Denver after 10 seasons in Seattle. The move comes after a down fantasy year for Wilson, as a three-game injury absence ended a streak of eight straight top-10 fantasy campaigns. Wilson still played pretty well when active, though, finishing as a top-10 fantasy QB in 50% of his appearances (ninth highest). Wilson's rushing output was way down last season (career-low 43 carries and 183 yards), but he brings an aggressive game to Denver, having finished no lower than seventh in average depth of throw four of the last five seasons. Wilson is still in his prime at age 33 and he has a pretty good supporting cast led by Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Javonte Williams. He's a fine mid-range QB1 target.
