Seahawks | Russell Wilson named Week 1 starter

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll tabbed QB Russell Wilson as his starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson beat out incumbent QB Tarvaris Jackson and free-agent signee QB Matt Flynn with a strong training camp and preseason. As far as fantasy purposes are concerned, Wilson should only be viewed as a low-end QB2 in leagues of 12 or more teams. He might be worth a look as an option when bye weeks start, or when the Seahawks face a favorable matchup.
