Seahawks | Russell Wilson good without Harvin

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:58:16 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had a total QBR of 45.3 with former WR Percy Harvin on the field this season, and a QBR of 71.0 with him on the field.

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.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson to play baseball in spring

Mon, 03 Feb 2014 19:36:16 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson plans to attend spring training with the Texas Rangers, according to his agent. He was selected in that sport's Rule 5 draft in December.

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.
