Every NFL fan knows Russell Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in football. But it doesn't seem like everyone understands just how good he really is.

In fact, it seems that not even the oddsmakers are immune from this. FanDuel Sportsbook's projected totals for Wilson are so low they can only really be described as disrespectful.

The over/under for Wilson's passing yardage total has been set at 3,950.5 while the over/under for his touchdown total is available at 30.5. Both projections are insultingly low.

Wilson has cleared that yardage total in three of the past five seasons, including last year, when he tallied 4,110 yards. As for the touchdowns, he has reached 31 passing TDs in each of his last three campaigns, averaging 33.3 per year during that stretch.

The Seattle Seahawks have also rebuilt their offensive line, added Greg Olsen and are getting a ton of skill-position players back from injury. Adding in the potential for a second-year leap from DK Metcalf, Wilson's production should be expected to increase – not regress.

In other words, putting such a low limit on Mr. Unlimited is not a good idea.
