Quick fantasy outlook: Wilson slipped to the third round of the draft last season in part because he lacks ideal height for a quarterback. Undeterred, he won the starting job from Matt Flynn during the preseason and never looked back. He led the Seahawks to an 11-5 record during the regular season and then won a road game in teh playoffs. Wilson has earned a reputation for being a quick learner who is receptive to coaching. He was impressively accurate last season (no need to add "for a rookie"), and got better as the season progressed. In the Seahawks' final game last year, a playoff loss to the Falcons, Wilson threw for 385 yards (and ran for 60 more) in a spectacular comeback performance that fell short only because the Seahawks left too much time on the clock (31 seconds) when they scored their go-ahead touchdown. Given Wilson's skills as both a passer and as a runner, as well as his track record of fixing his mistakes quickly, his future as both a fantasy quarterback and as an NFL quarterback is extremely bright. His biggest obstacle to fantasy stardom is the Seahawks' ability to win with a strong running game and a strong defense, seldom needing to air it out on offense. Nonetheless, he is a borderline fantasy QB1-QB2 this season with significant upside potential.
