Friday Round-Up: 2015 Fantasy Football Projections For Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, Aug. 7 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

What's Russell Wilson's Fantasy Value?

With fantasy football drafts fast approaching, NFL.com senior fantasy analyst Michael Fabiano is helping you decide which quarterback to lead your squad this season, supplying 2015 fantasy projections for each of the League's 32 starting signal callers.

Here's what Fabiano had to say about the Seahawks' Russell Wilson, who finished third in fantasy points among quarterbacks last year despite Seattle throwing the ball less than any team in the League:

The Seahawks feature a run-based offense, so it's no surprise that this team finished next to last in pass percentage (48.6) in 2014. Seattle also finished last in pass attempts (453), 31st in completions (286), 25th in passing yards (3,475) and tied for 22nd in touchdown passes (20). So how did Russell Wilson finish third in fantasy points among quarterbacks? Well, 37 percent of his production came as a runner. In three years under coordinator Darrell Bevell, Wilson has averaged 625.6 rushing yards and had finished no worse than 10th in fantasy points at his position. With Graham now in the mix, however, Wilson should now push for 25-28 touchdown passes in 2015.
