What to do with Russell Wilson in the Wild Card round of the 2021 NFL playoffs

We go over the fantasy football and DFS outlook of Russell Wilson ahead of the Seahawks Wild Card matchup against the Rams in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.

Russell Wilson’s pace slowed down over the back part of the season. He’s had just two games with multiple touchdown throws over the last six games of the regular season. The Seahawks need him to recapture that MVP form on Saturday for their Wild Card outing against the Rams. And for fantasy football, he’s one of the tougher players to get a read on this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, $6,600

Wilson had a tough time against the Rams defense this season. In their two meetings, Wilson has one touchdown and two picks. His touchdown came in the second game, Week 16, which the Seahawks won after losing the first one, the one where he threw two picks.

The Seattle signal-caller has the toughest matchup of any quarterback playing on Saturday. He’s also the third most expensive player at his position in DraftKings leagues.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

This is not a week to put Wilson into your lineup, whatever format you’re playing.
