|Seahawks | Russell Wilson excels out of pocket|
Fri, 12 Dec 2014 15:18:56 -0800
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been at his best in his career when he has scrambled out of the pocket, and he's kept the ball on 17 zone-read plays in the last five weeks and has averaged 8.7 yards per carry. In the first seven games, he kept the ball 13 times out of 75 zone reads. Wilson has ran for five touchdowns on zone-read carries this year alone, which is more than in his last two seasons combined.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($6,000) ran seven times for 35 yards against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night. Although San Fran's defense has been pretty vulnerable of late, they've been pretty solid against limiting opposing QBs, especially on the ground. At FantasyScore, he's mildly interesting, at best.

|Seahawks | Russell Wilson runs wild again|
Sun, 09 Nov 2014 17:50:27 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has rushed for over 100 yards three times this season, helping to salvage his stat line after less than stellar results in the passing game. He remains a Top 10 option in FantasyScore due to his dual threat status.

|Seahawks | Russell Wilson good without Harvin|
Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:58:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While QBR is a homemade ESPN statistic, and not an official NFL stat, it shows that Wilson did not suffer much when Harvin was not on the field, and in fact he flourished. He remains a top-10 fantasy option at his position.

|Seahawks | Russell Wilson sets record|
Mon, 06 Oct 2014 20:55:24 -0700
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson set a Monday Night Football record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 122 Monday, Oct. 6. He also scored a touchdown rushing and threw for 201 yards and two scores.
Fantasy Tip: Although Seattle is often happy to play it conservatively and pound the ball with Marshawn Lynch, Wilson showed the type of damage he can do when he is given the reins of the offense. He may not be the steadiest player at the position from a fantasy standpoint, but he offers a lot of upside.

|Seahawks | Russell Wilson impressed with WR speed|
Tue, 03 Jun 2014 16:51:09 -0700
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is impressed with the speed of the team's receiving corps, especially thanks to the addition of WR Paul Richardson, who the team drafted this year. "Yeah, our receivers right now are as fast as it gets. You've got Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse is extremely fast too. Then you add Paul Richardson who you saw today went for that deep, deep ball that I threw to him. He's looking exceptional as well. So I think our receiver group is probably one of the faster in the league right now, based on who we have."
Fantasy Tip: Don't be fooled now that Seattle has more wideout depth in 2014; the Seahawks remain a run-first squad. Richardson will have to battle for playing time behind Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin, and he probably won't have a significant enough role to be worth a draft pick this fall.

|Vikings | May go with shorter QB|
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 00:12:10 -0800
The success of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has the Minnesota Vikings thinking a shorter quarterback may be an option for them. The Vikings have talked to Johnny Manziel, who is 5-foot-11, but other short options are out there like 6-foot QB Connor Shaw and 6-1 QB David Fales.

|Seahawks | Russell Wilson to play baseball in spring|
Mon, 03 Feb 2014 19:36:16 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Seattle fans and fantasy owners likely need not worry about Wilson ditching football for baseball, obviously. It's interesting that he will work with the team and hasn't given up his baseball completely, though.
