Quarterback

Russell Wilson: Wilson completed a season-high 77.4% of his passes with 8.0 yards per attempt (his highest mark since Week 4) but failed to throw a touchdown pass. Wilson has now thrown one or fewer touchdown passes in every game but one this season. 

All things considered, Wilson played relatively alright with what was around him on Sunday, which is the main problem if you are trying to stream him or play him in 2QB formats. Wilson certainly has not played well, but Denver is just ravaged at wide receiver, offensive line, and in the backfield at this stage. We mentioned it last week for those who were entertaining streaming him against a Raiders defense we have been targeting weekly. We might get Jerry Jeudy back here, but Wilson is a low-ceiling 2QB play regardless.

Carolina also is not an amazing matchup like last week. They are 10th in passing points allowed per attempt (0.379) while allowing 6.8 yards per pass attempt (10th) and a 3.7% touchdown rate (12th).
