Cummings is a CBS Sports Senior Fantasy Writer, a former Footballguys staff writer and one-time host of "The Fantasy Football Show" on ESPN 1510 in Kansas City. He's one of the top Fantasy Football minds in the nation and specializes in detailed statistical analysis. His rankings and analysis go far beyond most -- giving exact projected numbers for every statistical category. If you want an edge in Fantasy Football, Cummings is the go-to expert.

We can tell you Cummings isn't high on Russell Wilson this year, dropping him out of the top five of his 2018 Fantasy Football rankings.

That's because of Seattle's increased emphasis on the run game. The Seahawks moved on from tight end Jimmy Graham and receiver Paul Richardson -- two big red-zone targets -- this offseason.
