Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will start third preseason game?

The Seattle Times' beat writer Danny O'Neil anticipates that rookie quarterback Russell Wilson @DangeRussWilson will start in the Seattle Seahawks next preseason game. O'Neil noted there were "multiple indications" Wilson would start over Matt Flynn. Wilson has also played very well against 2nd- and 3rd-string defenses. He has completed 22-of-33 pases for 279 yards with three TDs and one INT, and another eight rushes for 92 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is merely a rumor, but let's call it what it is: an educated guess. Beat writers sometimes have to create a story where there is none to an extent. Wilson probably does deserve a shot to start considering how well he's played in limited time. Flynn also hasn't exactly set the world on fire either. It's a situation to monitor. Considering Flynn's average draft position (186), this affects who to grab off the waiver wire more than anything.
