2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Having finished as a top-12 fantasy quarterback in every season of his career, Russell Wilson is once again being looked at as a potential stud heading into the 2017 NFL season. His pass attempts have increased in each of his five seasons, topping out at 546 attempts in 2016 but while he threw for a career high 4,219 yards, Wilson also tossed just 21 touchdown passes with a career-high 11 interceptions. On the bright side, that interception number was still low in comparison to the averages throughout the league. Wilson has typically been extremely efficient which has helped him remain a decent fantasy contributor throughout his career even when he's not having particularly huge yardage or touchdown weeks.

The biggest concern stemming from the 2016 season was Wilson attempted just 72 rushes, resulting in a career low 259 rushing yards. That put him below the elite running quarterback options but also behind the likes of Blake Bortles and Andrew Luck, who are not necessarily known for their running. An ankle injury and MCL sprain contributed to the decreased rushing output but it's also likely the team asked him to reduce his rushing attempts in order to preserve his health. He did drop some weight this off-season which should help him be more elusive, but the team still has major question marks across their offensive line which could be a cause for concern for Wilson's health.

Seattle added players in other positions, but didn't really do much to address their weak group of wide receivers. The team won't have much overturn at the position this season and while that can lead to added chemistry, only Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham are likely to be weekly fantasy options this season. Still, look for a return to form for Wilson in both the passing touchdown and rushing yardage areas, which should allow him to finish as a top 10 quarterback provided that he remains healthy. After being ranked in the top three heading into 2016, Wilson's lower ADP heading into 2017 could make him a great value for those who opt to wait a bit on quarterback in drafts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Seahawks WR corps rounding into form
Paul Richardson emerging as No. 3 over Jermaine Kearse
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 8, 10:40 am

Seattle Seahawks
ESPN is reporting that Paul Richardson appears to be the No. 3 behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett (leg), and that this could be the best group of pass-catching weapons that Russell Wilson has ever had. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Seahawks' quarterback has showcased the diverse array of weapons at his disposal, including the speed of Lockett and Richardson and mismatches with guys like Graham and C.J. Prosise. Baldwin presents a problem for defenses operating out of the slot. This looks to be another good bet for fantasy production, and Wilson is a safe bet for solid numbers with plenty of upside.
