Russell Wilson QB, SEA – We judge all sorts of players for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes fairly and sometimes unfairly. Wilson is a rookie, his receivers are below average, and he's only 5-11, which is obviously short for a quarterback. These are legitimate issues that he has had to deal with. But dealt with them he has. Six of his last seven games have been for 15 or more fantasy points in most formats, with the only outlier coming in Week 7 against San Francisco and their fifth-best fantasy defense versus QB's. He has also recorded five straight games with multiple touchdown throws. Wilson is still only 19.8 percent owned in ESPN leagues and is absolutely worth a flier as a QB2, despite his tough match-up in Week 16's rematch with San Francisco.
