News: 5 days agoWilson completed 18 of 23 pass attempts for 254 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts.
Spin: Wilson didn't do much on the ground (five carries for nine yards), but he didn't need to after dissecting the Colts' secondary from the pocket. The 32-year-old replicated his four-score performance from Week 1 of the 2020 season, and his fantasy managers are hoping the superstar quarterback can also replicate the 10 touchdowns he rattled off over the following two weeks as well. Indianapolis is no slouch on defense, so Wilson's matchup against a young Tennessee Titans defense next Sunday shouldn't worry his managers.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Wilson is back as the starter in Seattle, which was not always a given during what was a bit of a rocky offseason. The drama comes after a bizarre 2020 campaign in which Wilson opened the season with six top-7 fantasy weeks in eight games before managing zero after Week 8. Wilson's hot start was enough for his ninth-consecutive top-11 fantasy campaign (he's also finished top-3 in pass TDs each of the past four seasons), but Pete Carroll's penchant for a run-first offense figures to cap Wilson's pass volume moving forward. Wilson is now 32 years old, but still adds value with his legs (fourth among QBs in rushing yards in 2020). Consider him a mid-range QB1.
