Stud - Russell Wilson vs BUF
"Is Russell Wilson a strong candidate for Rookie of the Year?" -
The question was posed by one of my Twitter followers on Sunday afternoon and, at the moment, the question has legs. Robert Griffin III seemed to have a strong grasp on the postseason accolade up until his knee injury forced him to the sideline in Week 15. With that said, I still believe RG3 to have a slight lead on Wilson at the moment.
Back to the fantasy football spin.
Wilson posted one of the most amazing first-half fantasy performances in recent history when he accounted for four touchdowns against the Bills (in Toronto). The quarterback finished 14-23 for 205 yards with a touchdown pass, those four rushing scores and 92 rush yards on nine carries. The 41.4 fantasy points are a season high for the rookie out of Wisconsin. Still, Wilson's a risky play against San Francisco in Week 16. - Ryan Fowler
