Wilson has been a little uneven in the passing game lately, completing less than 50 percent of his attempts in Week 9 and less than 60 percent in Week 10, but played exceedingly well against a very good Arizona defense Sunday, posting a season-high 77.3 completion percentage while rushing for at least 70 yards for his third straight game. His touchdown came after the Seahawks put four field goals on the board, connecting with Cooper Helfet on a 20-yard score in the third quarter. He'll look to keep rolling when the Seahawks head to San Francisco Thursday.
Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 178 yards and two scores. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Wilson didn't have much going in the passing game, and was mostly limited to short passes. He averaged just 5.6 yards per completion. He was, once again, a strong presence in the run game. Wilson gained 71 yards on eight rushes. He finished second in the team in rushing, behind Marshawn Lynch.
Wilson will look for more Week 12 against the Cardinals.
Wilson racked up 26 Fantasy points Sunday, and it was the 71 rushing yards that put him over 20 for the first time since Week 7. He passed for just 178 yards on 32 attempts otherwise, though did toss a pair of scores, his first since Week 8.
Wilson has at least 18 Fantasy points in two of his last four games, a good sign of how difficult things have been for him. When he rushes the ball well, Wilson's Fantasy upside is still pretty high, as he showed by picking up 16 of his Fantasy points on the ground last week. However, if he can't get going in that aspect of the game, he's awfully tough to rely on, given how few weapons the team has around him.
If Wilson is your top option at quarterback down the stretch, you probably aren't feeling great about your chances right now. However, his upside is great enough that you can still use him in the right matchups.
Wilson, however, found a way to provide value to the club. The team mostly focused on the running game, and Wilson played a big role in that. He finished second on the team in rushing with 107 yards on 14 attempts. Wilson struggled in the passing game. While he completed 10 of 17 passes for 172 yards, Wilson also threw two interceptions. He was able to offset those struggles a bit by running in a 1 yard touchdown at the end of the game.
Wilson will take on the Chiefs Week 11.
The Giants defense has struggled slowed down passing games recently, allowing 65 combined Fantasy points to the last quarterbacks they have faced. Of course, Wilson has struggled in his own right in that span, picking up just 24 Fantasy points in consecutive games against pretty mediocre defenses, as he has struggled a bit since the trade of Percy Harvin.
One trend will have to end this week; either Wilson's struggles will end, or the Giants' issues with quarterbacks will. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard believe Wilson will come out on top in the matchup, with both ranking him among the top-10 for quarterbacks in Week 10. Consider him a solid starting option, even with his struggles.
