The fantasy playoffs are here. We made it. We’ll still have injuries and COVID-19 test results to watch out for, but it feels like a special achievement to make it this season. A wild regular season capped with a Tuesday night game seems fitting. Regardless, we still need to dig into what we saw this past week and what it means for the playoffs. To help, I took a look at few disappointing performances from Week 13 and discussed what I learned and how we can use the info moving forward.
Quarterback: Russell Wilson, Seahawks
Week 13 Results: 24.8 (Projected), 15.0 (Actual)
"Let Russ Cook" was the offseason anthem that turned into reality to start the season. The Seahawks were undefeated through five weeks and Russell Wilson was still in the MVP conversation through nine weeks. Now, we’re questioning everything about the offense (except for DK Metcalf). Wilson has finished outside of the Top 12 in four of his last five games. He finished as the QB20 in what we thought was a decent matchup against the New York Giants. With the playoffs starting this week, we need to better understand what’s going on with Seattle’s offense and if we can trust Russ to get back to his earlier season form to help us win our leagues.
