What to do with Russell Wilson in Week 9 fantasy football

We go over Russell Wilson’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Seahawks Week 9 matchup against the Bills.

Is Russell Wilson the MVP of the season thus far?

Russell Wilson is cruising to an MVP award for his incredible 2020 season. His 26 touchdown passes lead the league, and he’s been a huge asset for fantasy football teams. Needless to say, he’s a guy who belongs in your lineup each and every week, especially in what could be a shootout this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

Wilson had four touchdowns and 267 yards last week against the 49ers. He added another 23 yards scrambling too. He does have six interceptions on the season, which really isn’t that much, and three of those came in a single game. He’s thrown multiple touchdown passes in every game he’s played this season.

In eight games this season, the Bills have allowed 12 touchdown passes while picking off just four throws from opposing quarterbacks. One notable result is that they did manage to limit Patrick Mahomes to just two touchdown passes, but the Chiefs leaned heavily on their ground game in that one. The Seahawks running backs are dealing with a long list of injuries, which means Wilson will again do the heavy lifting.
