Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led the league in 2019 with 40 big-time throws (Pro Football Focus' highest-graded throws on precise downfield passes).
Huddle Up: And Wilson did it on 516 passing attempts, which tied for 12th in the league while playing for the run-heavy Seahawks. Wilson, though, still finished third among fantasy QBs -- his seventh top-10 finish in eight seasons -- so pass-heavy or not, count on Wilson to deliver top-end fantasy QB1 numbers.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 1,545 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on play-action passes during the 2019 regular season and postseason.
Huddle Up: Wilson has been one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL for several seasons and will have a good group of pass catchers again this season. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led all quarterbacks with a 94.6 Pro Football Focus grade on passing plays lasting longer than 3 seconds in 2019.
Huddle Up: Wilson's keeping-the-play alive skills have contributed mightily to his fantasy success -- he's been a top-11 fantasy QB in each of his eight seasons -- and he's arguably the most logical QB pick once Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes are off the board in drafts this summer.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 26 touchdowns with just two turnover-worthy plays on passes 20-plus yards downfield in 2018 and 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks added another big-play threat this offseason in WR Phillip Dorsett to complement the top duo of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Wilson will likely again be available at a discount in 2020 drafts, despite routinely finishing as one of the top fantasy options at his position.
