Are we really doubting Russell Wilson still?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Coming off the best game of his life (at least from a statistical standpoint), Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is started in only 67 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues. Is that a problem to anyone else?

In case you haven't noticed, the Seahawks haven't been as dominant defensively this year, which has made Wilson's performance more critical to their success. The result is better numbers for the third-year passer. He's contributed at least two touchdowns in every game but one, and that one was sandwiched between two three-touchdown games, including Week 7.

In those three-touchdown games, Wilson also rushed for more than 100 yards, leading to some monster production that has made him the fifth-best quarterback in standard CBSSports.com leagues to date.

So he's consistent and has a high ceiling from week to week. So ... what's the deal, then? Certainly it's not the matchup steering you away from him in Week 8. The hosting Panthers have allowed the sixth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season and rank 22nd against the pass, giving up 250.7 yards per game.

Losing does wonders for Russell Wilson's numbers
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though it wasn't the case Week 6 against Dallas, when the Seahawks began what's now their first losing streak since 2012, quarterback Russell Wilson has thrived with the team's diminished dominance this season. Never was it more apparent than Week 7 at St. Louis, when a come-from-behind effort translated to a career high in total yards. He completed 23 of 36 passes for 313 yards and ran seven times for 106. It was his second 100-yard rushing effort in his last three games.

He also had three touchdowns -- two through the air and one on the ground -- giving him multiple scores in five of the team's six games this season. He had multiple scores in only eight of 16 games last season.

Though the Seahawks have done a fine job limiting yardage, they haven't been as dominant defensively as they were last season, and that's given them a greater need for offense late in games. Though they won't always be playing from behind against a defense that will allow them to make up ground, they may need to throw in the fourth quarter often enough for Wilson to keep this up.

He's a good choice to start again Week 8 at Carolina.

Russell Wilson explodes for 419 total yards, 3 TDs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, held to 138 total yards by the Cowboys in Week 6, erupted in the Week 7 loss at St. Louis. Wilson hit 23 of 36 throws for 313 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, and he ran seven times for 106 yards and another score.

Wilson scored a rushing touchdown for the third straight week when he scooted 19 yards on a zone-read play in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Wilson broke containment for a career-long 52-yard scamper.

He threw both touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, hitting tight end Cooper Helfet for 19 yards and wideout Doug Baldwin for 9 yards.

Wilson, who's thrown two touchdowns in five of six starts, visits the Panthers in Week 8.

Bad Russell Wilson shows up again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Well, that wasn't supposed to happen.

Not after throwing for two touchdowns in each of his first four games, not against a defense that entered the day ranked 18th against the pass and certainly not at home, where he's been at his best since entering the league in 2012. But yes, Russell Wilson let down those Fantasy owners who had just begun to think they could rely on him on an every-week basis, turning in a stinker Week 6 against Dallas.

Wilson is no stranger to stinkers in Fantasy, but in the past, they've come when the Seahawks didn't need anything from him, whether because of their defense or running back Marshawn Lynch. But this time, he just didn't play well, completing half his passes for 126 yards and one interception.

So does this change our assessment of him in Fantasy? Well, maybe I did go a little far with the must-start talk. But I think the Seahawks will need to rely on Wilson more this year than in years past, and I still think that means he'll be more consistent overall. Don't lose faith.

Russell Wilson struggles mightily against Cowboys
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson saw his brilliant start to the season come to a crashing halt Sunday against the Cowboys. In a surprisingly poor performance at home, Wilson completed 14 of 28 throws for 126 yards and no touchdowns with one interception. He rushed twice for 12 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown.

This was Wilson's worst performance since a Week 16 home loss to Arizona last year. Aside from his 53-yard completion to Jermaine Kearse, Wilson passed for 73 yards on 27 other throws. Wilson averaged 4.5 yards per attempt and posted a 47.6 passer rating.

Wilson scored a rushing touchdown for the second straight week. He'll visit the Rams in Week 7.
