Wilson completed 23 of 32 passes for 298 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Vikings. He also carried the ball three times for seven yards. While Wilson once again was efficient and nearly posted his second 300-yard performance in a row, he only got the ball into the end zone once and didn't get enough support from the rest of the Seattle roster. He still has yet to throw an INT this year with a dazzling 73.3 percent completion rate and seven TDs through three games, but the Seahawks have only a 1-2 record to show for it. Wilson faces another tough test Week 4 on the road against the 49ers.
Wilson racked up 343 yards and two touchdowns on 22-for-31 passing and recorded 16 more yards on three carries during Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Titans. Wilson backed up his 254-yard, four-touchdown performance from the season opener by stuffing the stat sheet Week 2. However, more than half of his yardage through the air came on three plays -- he had two TDs of 60-plus yards and another 51-yard completion to Tyler Lockett -- and the Titans offense ground and pounded on the back of Derrick Henry in the second half, leading to just six points for the Seahawks between the third and fourth quarters. Wilson will aim to get back to winning ways next Sunday on the road against the 0-2 Vikings.
Wilson completed 18 of 23 pass attempts for 254 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts. 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.
Wilson didn't play in the Seahawks' final preseason game Saturday against the Chargers. Wilson was expected to play about a quarter, but head coach Pete Carroll opted to keep the team's most valuable player on the sidelines for the final exhibition matchup. Even without Wilson on the field, we saw a glimpse of new OC Shane Waldron's system, according to Gregg Bell of The News Tribune. Waldron frequently utilized two tight-end sets, and he even got fullback Nick Bellore involved. Of course, we shouldn't draw too many conclusions from a preseason game. After all, no scheme is going to leave DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett (groin) off the field for more than a couple of snaps per game. With the defense more likely to take a step back than improve, Wilson should end up throwing plenty this season, regardless of the initial game plan.
Wilson could play about a quarter in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. RB Chris Carson and a few others likely will be held out, but Wilson is expected to get a little playing time to tune up for his Week 1 road matchup with the Colts. The Seahawks brought back the same nucleus of offensive players, albeit with a few tweaks, hoping new OC Shane Waldron can help Wilson bounce back from a disappointing second half of 2020.
