In 2017, not only was Russell Wilson the #1 QB in fantasy, but he was ahead of Tom Brady (#2) by 53+ points.
Last season, even in a down year, Wilson was still the QB8.
Seattle always talks about how they are going to pound the football on the ground on offense, which I do believe they like to do. But they also just spent a late-second round pick, a mid-fourth round pick, and a seventh round pick on wide receivers three months ago, in addition to Lockett who's a stud. Doug Baldwin's injuries and subsequent retirement hurts, but I'm still predicting a bounce back year for the Seattle offense.
I have Wilson, Luck, Watson, and Rodgers all within a few points of each other for the second-through-fifth spots, but I just have a good feeling about Russell Wilson this year.
