What to do with Russell Wilson in Week 17 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Russell Wilson ahead of the Seahawks Week 17 matchup against the 49ers.

The Seahawks are currently riding a three-game winning streak after knocking off the Rams by a score of 20-9 in Week 16. Heading into the last week before playoffs start with a spot in the postseason already clinched, the Seahawks will take on the 49ers in their last game of the regular season.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

Wilson went 20-for-32 with 225 yards last week against the Rams, while throwing for a touchdown and running one in as well. He didn’t perform as well as most would expect him to, and he hasn’t thrown more than 263 yards in a single game since November 8. With a playoff spot already booked, there’s a chance Wilson could get plenty of rest in this game, but he’s still too tempting to actually sit if you’ve got him on your roster. He went for an impressive 29 fantasy points the last time the Seahawks went up against the 49ers, and hasn’t scored single digits all season so he should still be considered a QB1 even this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Russell Wilson.
