***Russell Wilson Bandwagon***

Recommended Posts

Started him. Spent most of the game regretting it. Then the next thing you know you look up and he's got 19 points.

Schedule looks great. And Baldwin may have just shown up for the season. Maybe Wilson and Seattle roll here for the rest of the season.

against that decimated secondary.... 19 points is not good enough.... it's not good enough for any week in 2018 NFL... 19 pts is QB15... which is what wilson is currently at in my scoring for the year.

Well...I've been streaming QBs all season. I'll take it.

Question: Wilson is #15...I'd be interested to know how many points separate say, QB8 from QB17? I bet not much. 

Unless you have Mahommes, Brees, Wentz, Luck there's a lot of the same guys doing the same thing week in week out.

Great article on how focus under new OC on technique improvements and improved fundamentals with Wilson have created the insane efficiency we are seeing in Wilson’s game right now.

Good read

Have this awful feeling that the regression fairies are going to nail Wilson at the worst possible time. Maybe not this week vs MN where he may be forced to throw more than usual.

Week 15 @SF could be a prime spot. I mean...he threw 4 TDs and threw the ball how many times? 

Week 16 vs. KC...if you make it that far that is a great spot for Wilson.

This is hysterical.

Russell Wilson was able to nail the 49ers with a penalty for offsides when he 'allegedly' threw the shoe of the MLB for the Niners back behind the LOS and then ran up and got the snap off before the guy could track down his shoe, lol. 🤣👟:lmao:

'Exquisite' Russell Wilson making most of his opportunities

RENTON, Wash. -- Officially, Russell Wilson completed 11 of 17 attempts on Sunday. But there might have been one more throw not accounted for on the stat sheet.

It allegedly involved a shoe.

Specifically, the one that slipped off the left foot of San Francisco 49erslinebacker Fred Warner late in the third quarter of the Seattle Seahawks' blowout win at home. According to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Wilson picked up the shoe and tossed it several yards behind the line of scrimmage. The 49ers were flagged for offside on the next play when they were trying to get a replacement for Warner onto the field before the hurrying-up Seahawks got off their next snap. Shanahan cited that sequence as the reason he lost his cool and drew a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

There's a joke to be made about the shoe toss being another example of Wilson making the most out of his limited opportunities to throw this season.

After all, the offside penalty negated a sack, the unsportsmanlike conduct gave the Seahawks 10 free yards and they scored three plays later, when Wilson found Jaron Brown for his fourth and final touchdown pass of the game.

 

Good stuff, lol.

Russell Wilson completed just 10-of-20 passes for 72 scoreless yards and an interception in the Seahawks' 21-7, Week 14 win over the Vikings.

Wilson at least made up for it a bit with 61 rushing yards, but he was one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks of the week. His big gaffe was just a flat-out stupid decision with six seconds left in the first half; Wilson was chased from the pocket, did a 360 turn, then blindly flung an interception right to LB Eric Kendricks with the Seahawks up 3-0 and near the goal line. Wilson never recovered and was bad all night. Seattle still won with ease on the back of Chris Carson and the run game along with the defense. Wilson should rebound next week at the Niners.

Wilson torched SF at home last time out on extremely low passing volume. Anyone else a bit nervous about Wilson in the semis just handing off and letting the D due it's thing?

The regression fairies have been lurking. Need ceiling in the semis. Not sure Wilson provides it.

Feel same way but my other qb is Winston against Baltimore.

49ers have been generating offense lately so if 49ers try to shut down run it could open up the pass. Other options are Allen or Carr. Hate to go into semis using such volatile options.

I love the matchup, but super scared the Seahawks get an early lead and just run the ball. 

Starting Luck instead.

I have Dak in over him, and if not Dak, I would probably start Lamar Jackson over him.  He was providing decent fantasy output despite just 20ish attempts per game all season, but that never seemed sustainable or reliable.  Last week we saw what happens when the stars dont align.  The floor is just too low to trust at this time of year, assuming you have other decent options.

I have L. Jackson that I could sub in. J. Allen also on the wire sitting there.

My hope here is that @SF, maybe SF puts up more of a fight. They seem stronger against the run and are without a doubt super weak against the pass. And turnovers are non existent.

I face P. Mahommes tonight. I think a lot may depend on if Mahommes goes nuts or not. If yes, I'm searching for upside. If not, maybe I play it safe with Wilson.

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-31 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 15 overtime loss to the 49ers.

This was a game the Seahawks should have won but personal fouls and sloppy defense cost them the win. The offense looked good for most of the game however. Wilson was able to pick on the backup corners which led to two easy touchdowns, and Chris Carson picked up 119 yards on 22 carries. Wilson can still pop for bigger fantasy lines as a passer, but it's hard for him to have a huge ceiling when he's not running the ball like he used to. Wilson will still be a QB1 in next week's home matchup against the Chiefs.

:lmao: 5'-11"...maybe. He will go the way of Troy Smith and Pat White, both thought of as potential NFL starters yet failed miserably. His best case scenario is backup and injury fill in like that Wallace bum who I saw that they likened him to during the draft.

Fantaasy irrelevant.

Smith

Russell Wilson completed 18-of-27 passes for 233 yards and one touchdown in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Although his numbers don't jump off the page, Wilson was spectacular the few times he was allowed to throw, averaging 8.6 YPA through the air. The elephant in the room was Pete Carroll's and Brian Schottenheimer's offensive play-calling, which essentially handcuffed Wilson (despite his success) and stubbornly stayed establishing the run to the tune of 2.8 yards per tote on 21 total carries. To call Seattle's approach embarrassing is an insult to the term 'embarrassing.' If the coaching infrastructure stays in place this offseason (and we expect it to), consider Wilson a low-end QB1 entering the new league year due solely to the fact that he'll spend more time handing the ball off rather than being allowed to make downfield plays. His 3,448 passing yards from the regular season were his lowest since 2013.

Great example of someone trying to create a story and controversy where none exists. 

Seattle is going to wait until the draft and free agency plays out and then they will extend Wilson. Anyone want to put some money on this?
