Russell Wilson has always been a great Fantasy quarterback for most of his four-year career, but he was elite to close last season, which we hope carries over to this year. Wilson started 2015 for the Seahawks looking like a bust with just two games scoring more than 18 Fantasy points in a standard league in his first nine outings. But from Week 11 on, Wilson was unstoppable with 22 Fantasy points or more in seven games, including five with at least 30 points and two with at least 40. Ironically it coincided with Jimmy Graham (knee) getting hurt, but Wilson did most of his damage as a passer instead of running the ball. He finished the year with 4,024 passing yards, 34 touchdowns and eight interceptions and 553 rushing yards and one touchdown, and he was the No. 3 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues. We don't expect a significant drop-off for Wilson this year, and he should be considered a top five Fantasy quarterback on Draft Day. We recommend drafting Wilson no later than Round 4 in the majority of leagues.
