Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have had 11 days of downtime ahead of their Week 12 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. They probably didn’t even need that much rest to summon the effort needed to beat the downtrodden Eagles, but it’s great news for Wilson’s fantasy outlook this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

Wilson had a rough stretch in Weeks 9 and 10. In two games against the Bills and Rams, he turned the ball over an uncharacteristic seven times. But he was back on track last week against the Cardinals, throwing two touchdowns with a season-low 197 yards.

On paper, the Eagles have limited opposing quarterbacks to no passing touchdowns and just one rushing score over their last three games, but look a little closer and you’ll see that they were facing Ben DeNucci, Daniel Jones, and Baker Mayfield. Wilson should have no problem picking apart this team.
