Russell Wilson has been mired in a rough patch lately. Last week in a stunning loss to the New York Giants, he was only able to muster 263 yards and one touchdown, along with an interception. That was the fourth time in his last four games he’s failed to throw multiple touchdowns, something he did in every outing through his first eight games of the season. Fortunately for Wilson and the Seahawks, they draw the New York Jets this week, which is always a nice chance to pad the box score.
Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson
If you’ve been hesitant to put Wilson back into your lineups because of his recent results, I don’t blame you. The heady days of four and five touchdowns per game had him solidly in the MVP conversation for fantasy football too. But the Jets are a nice way for him get back into the groove. New York has allowed eight touchdowns over their last three games, including turning Derek Carr into a hero last week with his last-minute Hail Mary.
