Summary

Wilson comes into 2018 looking to repeat his overall QB1 finish from last season. He bounced back from an injury-plagued 2016 to lead the league in touchdown passes last year (34) and put a cherry on top with 586 rushing yards and another 3 scores on the ground. All told, he accounted for a staggering 82% of Seattle's total yardage and played a role in 37 of the team's 38 offensive touchdowns. The Seahawks invested a first round pick in running back Rashaad Penny, but a shoddy offensive line and declining defense could mean Wilson will once again be forced to carry the team on his back. Downgraded pass-catching weapons and the first offensive coordinator change of his career are concerns, but provided Wilson's offensive line can keep him in one piece, a statistical repeat of 2017 is well within his range of possible outcomes. With established overall QB1 upside and six straight finishes as the QB11 or better, Wilson deserves to be one of the first three quarterbacks drafted in fantasy leagues this season. (May 5)
