PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 9 FOR RUSSELL WILSON WITH FEWER FPS THAN JUSTIN HERBERT
Russell Wilson is projected for 26.7 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #5 ranked quarterback and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Tom Brady but behind Justin Herbert. Week 10 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#3). He is projected for 25.9 fantasy points.
RUSSELL WILSON IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $9K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $7.6K
He is projected for 22.7 FanDuel points and 24 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$336 short of $9K on FanDuel and -$134 short of $7.6K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
