Any Fantasy Football Love for Russell Wilson

  As I sit in the man-cave and dig into the thousands of scenarios that lead up to draft night for my league, I can't say as I give very much thought to Russell Wilson of the Seahawks.
    At first glance, I think of him as a solid, NFL QB who wins a lot, is a great teammate, runs when he needs to and is vastly underpaid.
   Me thinking of him as an elite NFL QB or even a top-tier Fantasy Football QB just doesn't happen.
  But then, I look at those stats and the man has passed for 26 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.
   Hmmm, upper 20's in TD's with a few running TD's mixed in and he's not really even on my radar.
 Time to adjust the radar, I guess!
Let's take a look at his stats over a brief NFL Career. 
2012 - 3118 yards (64 percent completion) 26 td's and 10 int's - Rushing 489 yards and 4 scores
2013 - 3357 yards (63 percent) 26 td's and 9 int's - Rushing 539 yards and 1 td.
 Before we get to some analysis let's take a peek at what some of the Fantasy sites are suggesting regarding Russell Wilson's fantasy value.
CBS - Jeremy Eisenberg - 15th - 
CBS - Dave Richard - 18th
Yahoo - 14th
ESPN - 8th
Fox - 11th 
Rich Winter analysis: I'm surprised that Wilson has been so consistent in his first two years in the league. Those 26 touchdowns last season ranked him 9th in that department. Add in those rushing of near or over 500 yards per season and he moves up a few notches because he's going to give you some points in that area.
   The Seahawks lost a couple of receivers from last season including Golden Tate who landed in Detroit. 
Percy Harvin who was absent a year ago will take over the lead WR duties. When he's healthy, he's a good receiver, although he's never gone over 1000 yards.
