Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is the most important quarterback in the NFL when it comes to impacting the spread.
According to a FOX Bet graphic shared by Outkick the Coverage, Russell Wilson is worth a league high 11 points over his backup Anthony Gordon. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
No other quarterback in the league is worth double digits to their team. You can see the list below.

Next time somebody tries to tell you Russell Wilson isn’t the man, I suggest you just send them the graphic above.
The dude is worth 11 points to his team! He’s a two score lead player by himself when it comes to the spread! That’s simply mind-boggling.

You know what this graphic really means? It means oddsmakers think the Seahawks are screwed if Wilson goes down.
They don’t think the Seahawks will be bad. They think they’ll be downright atrocious. If Wilson isn’t under center, then Seattle is screwed.
As a Wisconsin man, I enjoy seeing nothing more than Wilson getting the respect he deserves and has earned. We’ve never seen a quarterback with his skill set before, and it might be a very long time before we see it again.
