Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson expressed a desire for the offense to utilize more of an up-tempo attack in 2020 during an interview with Pro Football Talk Live last week.
'I mean we've always been really good at two-minute (offense),' Wilson said. 'We've always been really good in those end of the half, those not always hurry-up situations, but those up-tempo situations (and) moments. And the reality is this: I think the defense gets tired, first thing. And I think the second thing is that, you know, I really know kind of what I want to get after them, how we want to get after them, especially in those moments. And guys just make plays in those moments. I think the freedom of just going after it and just scoring as many points, you know?'
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have long clamored for the Seahawks to give Wilson more opportunities in the passing game. The 31-year-old already carries a high fantasy ceiling, but it almost goes without saying that he could rival the best fantasy quarterbacks in a game if Seattle would ease up on its run-heavy ways early in games so Wilson could work his magic in the first half as well as the second. Regardless, he's a high-end fantasy QB1 for the foreseeable future.
