It was a miracle that Wilson was able to finish last season as the QB9 with only 427 pass attempts and zero rushing touchdowns. There’s almost no way he can maintain that efficiency, but any regression he suffers there, he might be able to salvage with an increase in volume.

It’ll be a bit of an uphill battle as Pete Carroll/Brian Schottenheimer clearly want to be a run-heavy team. But if the defense takes a step back, it could force their hand and Wilson could end up somewhere between his 2017 and 2018 seasons, where he put up the second-highest percentage of weekly top-five finishes at the position with 37.5%.
