Quarterback: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
@ Detroit Lions, Sunday 1:00pm
This is too good of a value to pass up. Russell Wilson isn’t having a great fantasy football year, but at this price he’s worth adding to your lineup. The Seattle Seahawks offense has looked better of late and that obviously improves Wilson’s outlook.
Seattle takes on the Detroit Lions this week a team that is allowing just 221 passing yards per game. So, this isn’t necessarily a great matchup for Wilson.
However, the Lions are allowing over 25 points per game which means there will be scoring opportunities for Wilson. He remains a major threat with his legs that has helped boost his fantasy production.
Backup Option: Mitch Trubisky, Chicago Bears
vs. New York Jets, Sunday 1:00pm
Mitch Trubisky is going through some growing pains as a passer. However, he has still been a strong play in fantasy football. Trubisky has put up solid passing totals and has killed opposing defenses with his legs.
This week the Bears face the New York Jets in what is shaping up to be a must win for Chicago. Matt Nagy will keep allowing Trubisky to use his legs if that’s what gets them a win.
