2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-12-2014 by Brad Kruse

Russell Wilson enters his third year in 2014. He scored 323 fantasy points in each of his first two seasons. In those years, Seattle has run the ball more than they've thrown the ball. In part, this is because Wilson is also an effective scrambler in his own right. In 2012, Seattle threw the ball 43-percent of the time and in 2013 they threw the ball 46-percent of the time. Part of this is just part of strategy and minimizing risk, but as Wilson grows into the position, he will throw the ball more.

With a healthy Percy Harvin ready for Week 1, Seattle will be able to do more with their passing opportunities as well since he is by far the best receiver the team has had in years. Look for Seattle to be a little more balanced this year. Perhaps a 50-50 split could be coming or closer to it. In his short career, Wilson has proven himself to be accurate (63.5-percent completion rate) and effective (eight yards per attempt). His TD rate (6.5-percent) has also been noteworthy. He could cut down on his interceptions, but with more volume, his already QB1 fantasy point totals could elevate him to push into the Top 6 fantasy QBs in the league.

6.05 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - Wait on quarterbacks. Wait, wait, wait. Without any context, I have done that here. I have Wilson ranked as a top-five fantasy quarterback right now, and getting him in the sixth round brings major value. However, considering that Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck, Matt Ryan, Tony Romo, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick were still on the board, you could make an argument that I should have waited even longer. Knowing how the next couple of rounds transpired, I should have strengthened my running backs here with Ahmad Bradshaw, then drafted Ryan in the seventh round.
