What to do with Russell Wilson in Week 11 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Russell Wilson ahead of the Seahawks Week 11 matchup against the Cardinals on Thursday Night Football.

What to watch for in NFL Week 11

Russell Wilson was on fire this season through Week 9, but everything came crashing down in Week 10, as Wilson struggled against the Los Angeles Rams. He put up a performance which saw him complete 23 of 37 passes for 248 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions. To add insult to injury, he also lost a fumble in the game.

After a week where nothing went right, Wilson will look to get back on track on Thursday night against the Cardinals. Can he redeem himself and lead your team to victory once again? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson is averaging 24.9 points per game this season and his 9.92 point performance in Week 10 was hopefully a one time fluke. It looks like we may be in for a shootout, as the Cardinals aren’t far behind the Seahawks defense, who have allowed the highest point totals to opposing quarterbacks this season. The Cardinals have allowed the fifth most points to opposing QBs, which bodes well for Wilson. Tyler Lockett is nursing a knee injury, so keep an eye on his availability as a target for Wilson, but all signs point to plenty of opportunity for success.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Russell Wilson as a QB1.
