Wilson was a dud across all formats while he was hurt last year, but once he was healthy, he delivered the top 3-5 finishes that we care so much about in best ball leagues. Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham should also be feeling better and the backfield should be improved, so the offensive pie that Wilson serves up should also get bigger. He adds more value in best ball than his middling ADP indicates.

Summary

Once again, Seattle reshuffled its offensive line and the unit allowed an average of 2.7 sacks per game--the sixth-highest total in the league last year. Even so, Wilson gutted through the season despite the punishment that resulted in an MCL sprain and high-ankle sprain early in the year and later, a pectoral injury. He didn't have complete mobility until season's end, but he still finished the year as the No. 10 fantasy quarterback, posting a career-high 4219 passing yards. For the third consecutive year, Wilson heated up down the stretch, throwing 10 touchdowns during his final 5 games. Wilson also posted a career-high 11 interceptions, but 5 of them came against Green Bay in Week 14 and at least 3 of them were odd-ball situations. The past three years have demonstrated that Wilson has potential to deliver elite fantasy quarterback production, but he needs a better offensive line to do it. He's an aggressive and accurate deep passer when he has time in the pocket. When he's healthy enough to buy time, there are few who improvise as well as Wilson. Fantasy owners will likely be in wait-and-see mode with Wilson's upside, making him a mid-to-late-range QB1 in drafts. (May 25)
