Wilson completed 29 of 49 passes for 373 yards and four touchdowns during Sunday's 33-27 loss to Tennessee. He also rushed for 26 yards. While it took time for the Seattle offense to begin clicking Sunday, and Wilson's final numbers likely weren't indicative of his real-world performance, it was a huge fantasy output. The 373 passing yards were a career high, so after throwing for just 356 yards and a single touchdown through the first two games of the year, it was reassuring for fantasy owners to see Wilson shine. The porous Seattle offensive line is still a concern heading into Week 4, but facing the Colts at home projects as a great matchup for Wilson's fantasy upside.
Wilson completed 23 of 39 passes for 198 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 12-9 victory over the 49ers. He also carried 12 times for 34 yards. It wasn't pretty, but Wilson ultimately pulled out the victory Sunday thanks in large part to his Houdini-like ability to escape dangerous situations. He won the day on a characteristically-elusive play midway through the fourth quarter during which Wilson escaped at least two potential sacks to find WR Paul Richardson for the game-winning touchdown from nine yards out. Although the rest of Wilson's day could be considered erratic and underwhelming, most of the offense's struggles seemed to belong to the offensive line. Not to mention, Wilson's stat line could've looked much prettier if not for a pair of end-zone drops by C.J. Prosise and Tanner McEvoy.
Wilson completed 14 of 27 passes for 158 yards and took two carries for 40 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Packers. Wilson took three sacks and lost a fumble on one of them, dealing with Seattle's usual struggles on the offensive line. He also didn't get much help from the running game, which accounted for just 50 yards on 16 carries once his own rushing stats are removed. Wilson did at least look mobile and healthy, likely setting him up for a bounce back in a Week 2 home game against the 49ers.
Wilson completed 13 of 19 passes for 200 yards and a score in Friday's preseason win over the Chiefs. He also added four yards rushing during the contest. Playing into the third quarter, five of Wilson's 13 completions went for 20 or more yards. Wilson has now averaged more than 10 yards per attempt in all three of Seattle's preseason contests. Wilson's legs always make him a worthy fantasy starter, but Wilson really left his mark while airing it out deep in 2015 - tallying 34 passing touchdowns while posting a career high 8.3 yards per attempt. If the Seahawks toss it down the field during the season the way they have in the preseason, Wilson could be primed for a rebound season.
Wilson completed 13 of 18 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 of preseason against the Vikings on Friday. He also rushed twice for one yard. Wilson looked sharp playing the whole first half. He capped the opening drive with a one-yard touchdown pass to training-camp standout Kasen Williams and tossed a 22-yard score to running back Mike Davis on the first play after the two-minute warning. Wilson already looks in regular-season form, and he's taken only one sack in 23 dropbacks through two games. Left tackle George Fant suffered a season-ending torn ACL, which could impact Wilson. Fant isn't good, but he's presumably better than the backup, whoever that ends up being. It's something to watch, at least.
