Fantasy Football 2012: Russell Wilson a stealthy sleeper pick

Russell Wilson shouldn't disappoint fantasy owners as the Seahawks take on the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Otto Greule Jr

Russell Wilson should provide a quality sleeper pick this week in fantasy football as the Seattle Seahawks take on the Buffalo Bills.

Wilson has emerged as a legitimate starting quarterback for teams in the playoff hunt during the month of November. Excluding last week's 58-0 blowout against the Cardinals, Wilson has thrown nine touchdowns in four games without throwing a single interception.

The Bills defense has struggled against the pass this year. Teams average 240.7 yards a game and 1.6 touchdowns through the air. They have given up 39 passes of 20 or more yards.

SB Nation's Week 15 quarterback ranks have Wilson listed as a potential sleeper flyer at quarterback.

Wilson did not have a great game against the Arizona Cardinals. but that was because the game got quickly out of hand. Facing the lowly Buffalo Balls should be a very good pick-me-up.

Wilson is coming off of one of his worse fantasy performances against the Cardinals last week. That was largely because the game got so out of hand so quickly that the Seahawks quit running the ball. Wilson was removed in the third quarter and finished the game 7 for 13 for 148 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
