Quarterback — Russell Wilson (24)

After being selected out of Wisconsin in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, quarterback Russell Wilson won the starting QB job in Seattle and became a star almost instantly.

In his rookie season, Wilson threw for over 3,000 yards, 26 touchdowns, and just 10 interceptions. He also rushed for 489 yards and four more touchdowns. Wilson is a playmaker, plain and simple. He is a smart quarterback with a ton of ability and I fully expect him to be a top 10 fantasy football quarterback in 2013.

This is a player you are going to want to get your hands on early in your draft, so make sure you strategize a good spot to get him. With dual threat quarterbacks really trending across the NFL, don’t be surprised if Wilson goes in the first round of some drafts, depending on the formatting of the league.

Primary backups — Brady Quinn, Tarvaris Jackson
