Sunday's loss was unquestionably Wilson's worst passing performance of the season, as he registered his first multi-interception game while also chalking up season lows in completion percentage (51.5) and yards per pass (4.58). Though he struggled to pass the ball, he managed to salvage at least some fantasy value through his performance on the ground, where his 80 yards doubled his total rushing yards on the season. He looks more willing to run than he has all season, indicating his ankle injury is likely a thing of the past. Next week, Wilson and the
Wilson completed 18 of 31 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown, and also caught a score in Sunday's 26-15 win over the Eagles.
Wilson wasn't doing much for most of the first half, but made a nice throw on the run to Jimmy Graham that resulted in a 35-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. His touchdown catch came on a gadget play, as he ran a pass pattern after pitching the ball to Doug Baldwin. Although Wilson ran for just 19 yards on eight carries, he looks more spry in and out of the pocket, and seems to be over the ankle injury that bothered him for most of the year. Next up for Wilson are the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay.
Wilson has not missed a game this season, but he was slowed earlier in the campaign after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 1. That injury understandably impacted Wilson's mobility, but he was able to run full speed in practice last week for the first time since the incident. With six total touchdowns in his past two games to boot, Wilson's performance level has elevated with his improved health, something that could make him an even more valuable fantasy commodity during the second half of this season.
Wilson looked his healthiest since Week 1. He's still not 100 percent, but he moved more like his normal self, avoiding the pass rush and scrambling to keep plays alive. The
Wilson completed 20 of 26 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing three times for 10 yards and another score in Monday night's win over the Bills.
Wilson's performance was easily his best since Week 4, even though the vast majority of his production came during the first half. After going three straight games without accounting for a touchdown, Wilson ran in from three yards out early on, giving him his first score on the ground this season. Then, Wilson got some help from tight end Jimmy Graham on his two second-quarter touchdown tosses, which both came off one-handed grabs from Graham. Although the Seahawks' offense stagnated significantly in the second half, Wilson's fantasy owners should be pleased by the fact that three of his eight total touchdowns this season came Monday alone.
