From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Wilson only ran 40 plays against the Chargers, and he still had a solid fantasy week. He returns home and faces a Broncos defense hasn't lived up dream team billing quite yet. The valleys of previous years in Wilson's weekly scoring might be flattening out into a higher weekly floor.

Week 3: vs Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Super Bowl Rematch! Russell Wilson did what needed to be done on February 2, 2014, with 18/26 for 206 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with zero sacks taken from Denver on the way to an easy 43-8 Super Bowl victory. So far this season, Wilson is the ninth-ranked fantasy quarterback in the land, with 36/53 for 393 yards passing, four TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with 9/47/0 rushing to his credit. Doug Baldwin has been the top wide receiver in terms of targets, with 11 for 6/49/0 receiving, followed by Percy Harvin (eight for 8/64/0); Jermaine Kearse (eight for 5/69/0) and Ricardo Lockette (four for 2/38/1). The other three TDs thrown have gone to running backs Marshawn Lynch (five targets for 5/41/1 receiving); Robert Turbin (two for 2/35/1); and Derrick Coleman (two for 1/15/1). Wilson is getting the job done using the tools available to him. The Broncos' pass D allowed 26/42 for 247 yards, zero TDs or interceptions, with two sacks for eight yards of Alex Smith last week. Andrew Luck finished with 35/53 for 354 net passing yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with three sacks taken for -16 yards back in Week 1. To date, the Broncos are ranked 30th in the NFL averaging 300.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with two passing TDs given up balanced by two interceptions generated so far. Wilson and company have a great matchup to exploit at home this weekend.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs GB (19 / 28 / 191 / 2 / 0 pass, 7 / 29 / 0 rush)

Wilson picked up right where he left off last year, keeping the Green Bay defense off balance, leading a very impressive offense, and putting up good but not great numbers for his owners. In the early going, Wilson faced some decent pressure but stayed in the pocket and made quick passes to compensate, mostly to Percy Harvin. Wilson proved adept at finding the open man, and taking advantage of the Packers miscues. On one pass to Harvin, he capitalized on two defenders colliding and hit him in stride for a big gain; on another play, Wilson noticed the corner cheating in (drawn by the play action) and hit Lockette for a relatively easy scoring play. It wasn't until late in the game that Wilson showed how dangerous he can be as a runner, especially on a scramble for 13 yards to set up first and goal. His best asset continues to be his willingness to spread the ball around. As much as it felt like the Percy Harvin show at times, Wilson threw TD passes to secondary options Lockette, the fullback Derrick Coleman, and kept his tight ends involved as well. With so much talent on the field, there always seems to be a play to be made.

2014 Week 2 vs SD (17 / 25 / 202 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / 18 / 0 rush)

Despite the Chargers hogging the ball (Total time of possession: 42:15-17:45), Wilson still ended up with his typical 200 yards and 2 TD passes. The difference was, he was playing from behind for much of the game. And, fell short of the win in the end. He spread the ball out well, but noticeably low on receptions (1-5-0) was Percy Harvin. The Chargers pressured the pocket consistently, and so Wilson predictably had the most success getting the ball to his running backs (TD passes to both Turbin and Lynch) on short outlet passes. Wilson did make an effort to get the ball to Jermaine Kearse, and they have a pretty good rapport when the opportunities are there. Wilson's usual play-action sleight of hand confused the defense some, but not enough. In short, the effort was there - precision passes, clutch scrambling, great vision, and an impressive 1 minute scoring drive to end the first half, were all evident. But Wilson faced an uphill battle all day.
