Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 19-3 win over the 49ers. He took four sacks and added 35 yards on seven carries.
For a third straight week, Wilson was solid but unspectacular in a difficult matchup, though this time he did the vast majority of his damage through the air. The highlight was a 63-yard completion to TE Tony Moeaki, with the play requiring an impressive escape by Wilson, followed by a long catch-and-run by the tight end. Wilson will face another tough defense in Philadelphia next week, but it's a matchup that should require him to attempt more than 22 passes.

Wilson completed 17-of-22 passes for 211 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Cardinals. He also had 10 carries for a game-high 73 yards.
Wilson was harassed practically the entire game, getting sacked a season-high seven times, but also made several big plays with his feet. The lack of passing stats over the last five games continues to hurt Wilson owners, but his rushing numbers have softened the blow. He'll have a tough matchup next week, facing the 49ers on Thanksgiving.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 71 yards on eight carries during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Wilson connected with seven different receivers, throwing touchdowns to wideout Doug Baldwin and tight end Tony Moeaki, who was active for the first time since signing with the Seahawks on Nov. 4. Wilson has passed for more than 205 yards just twice this season, though he continues to make up for it with his feet, including 178 rushing yards and a touchdown in the last two games. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against a Cardinals defense allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game this season but the third-most passing yards.

Wilson completed just 10-of-17 passes for 172 yards and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 38-17 win over the Giants, but came up huge as a runner, carrying the ball 14 times for 107 yards and a touchdown.
Other than a pretty 60-yard throw to Jermaine Kearse, Wilson really struggled as a passer Sunday. He was sensational as a runner, however, and his one-yard bootleg touchdown with 5:19 remaining closed the scoring for Seattle. It was Wilson's third 100-yard rushing game of the season, and he's already recorded four touchdowns on the ground, after running for just one score in 2013. While the rushing stats are great, Wilson is in a little bit of a funk as a passer, failing to go over 200 yards, while posting a terrible 1:3 TD:INT ratio in the last three games. He'll look to get back on track throwing the ball next week against a solid Chiefs' defense.

Wilson completed 17-of-35 passes for 179 yards, with no touchdowns or turnovers in Sunday's 30-24 win against Oakland. He also carried the ball eight times for 31 yards.
Not the type of fantasy game owners were looking for from Wilson, who has not thrown a touchdown pass in two of the last four contests. He also had a tough time finding his wide receivers, as Marshawn Lynch led the Seahawks in receiving, with five receptions for 76 yards. He'll look to rebound from a statistical standpoint next week against the Giants.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 199 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, while adding 35 rushing yards on six carries in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
Wilson has now failed to score multiple touchdowns and throw for 200 yards in two of the last three weeks, though the exception was his record performance last Sunday when he became the first quarterback in league history to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game. He spread the ball around against the Panthers, connecting with nine different receivers, with his lone touchdown coming on a 23-yard pass to tight end Luke Willson with 47 seconds left to put the Seahawks up for good. The absence of Percy Harvin doesn't seem to be making much of of an impact on Wilson's stat line, and he'll look to get back on track in Week 9 against the Raiders.

Wilson completed 23-of-36 passes for 313 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing seven times for 106 yards and another score during Sunday's 28-26 loss to the Rams.
With plenty of talk about how the Seahawks would respond after wideout Percy Harvin was traded to the Jets earlier this week, Wilson put on a show, setting a season-high with his 313 passing yards, a large chunk of which went to Doug Baldwin, who caught seven of 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. He has remarkably rushing for over 100 yards in two of the last three games, while scoring one rushing touchdown in each of those contests. While he may not usually do a lot with his arm, Wilson continues to show that he can do some serious damage while rushing the ball, something he'll likely continue doing in Week 8 against a Panthers defense that is allowing over 140 rushing yards per game this season, tied for the fifth-worst mark in the league.

Wilson did not have his best game in Sunday's loss to Dallas, completing 14-of-28 passes for only 126 yards with an interception. He did score on a nine-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
The Cowboys controlled the clock, and Wilson struggled to get much going when Seattle did have the ball. It was the first time this season that he failed to throw multiple touchdowns in a game, as Dallas' underrated defense kept him in check. He'll attempt to get back on track against the Rams on the road in Week 7.

Wilson completed 18-of-24 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns, adding 11 carries for 122 yards and another touchdown, in Monday's 27-17 win over the Redskins.
Wilson had one of the finest games of his young career, due in large part to his ability to avoid pressure. He piled up rushing yards from the start, using a mixture of option bootlegs, traditional read-option plays, and scrambles from designed passes. He also made some nice throws after escaping the pass rush, notably finding Marshawn Lynch for a game-icing 30-yard gain late in the fourth quarter. In addition to the fantastic numbers he produced, Wilson had two touchdown passes to Percy Harvin nullified by penalties, though one of the two drives later ended with a scoring throw to Lynch. The only thing that slowed down the Seattle offense was a steady stream of penalties on the offensive line, which often resorted to holding against a tough Washington pass rush. The Seattle line has looked mediocre this season, but with the offense still thriving, Wilson is on track for his best statistical campaign. He's thrown for 190-plus yards and a pair of touchdowns in each contest, and is now averaging 52.3 rushing yards per game. Next week brings a favorable home matchup against the Cowboys.

Wilson completed 24-of-34 passes for 258 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's exciting overtime win against Denver. He also ran for 40 yards, and caught a 17-yard pass.
Wilson made a number of clutch plays, including a couple of crafty runs in overtime, setting up Marshawn Lynch's six-yard plunge to win the game. Wilson and Percy Harvin really haven't connected yet, but the smooth quarterback has been a consistent fantasy performer through three weeks, tossing a pair of scores in each game.
