Summary

The Seattle Seahawks have passed the ball more each year since drafting Russell Wilson. The growth in attempts hasn't impacted his output, Wilson has a career average of 8.1 yards per attempt after peaking at 8.3 for the 2015 season. He cracked 4,000 yards and threw for 34 touchdowns last season despite not throwing the ball more than 500 times. With his physical talent and an improving cast of weaponry around him, Wilson's potential is huge. We got a glimpse of his ceiling over the second half of the 2015 season when he threw 25 of his 34 touchdowns. The only real concern with Wilson moving forward is the state of his offensive line, but that has been a problem throughout his career. (May 21)

Seahawks | Russell Wilson has made strides (Wed Jun 22, 05:31 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has made a clear step ahead this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'His command is all-time. His ability to move defenders with his eyes to set up some things, he's consistently doing that, almost unconsciously, he's so clued in,' Carroll said. 'We saw him throw the ball all over the field throughout the offseason and he's been strong and accurate and really precise about stuff. He has had a great offseason.'

Our View: Wilson was arguably a league winner in the second half of the season last year after a slow start to the campaign. While the Seahawks won't have a high volume pass offense, Wilson has shown the efficiency and running ability to be an elite fantasy quarterback without throwing even 500 passes in a season. He deserves to go in the top five fantasy quarterbacks this year.

Seahawks | Change in offense aided Russell Wilson (Mon Jun 20, 12:50 AM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw 24 touchdowns and one interception in the last seven games after the offense shifted to emphasize quicker passes, timing routes and spread formations. He was sacked 31 times in the first seven games and just 15 times in the last nine games as getting rid of the ball quickly helped negate struggles on the offensive line. Head coach Pete Carroll said to expect more of that in 2016.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Wilson has been a top-5 fantasy QB each of the last two years, and he's been a top-12 fantasy QB every year he's been in the league. With more emphasis on shorter passes and guys like Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett catching passes, Wilson could finish as the best fantasy QB in 2016.
