Seahawks | Russell Wilson back at full speed

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 18:32:42 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has looked great throwing the ball and "great moving around" during OTAs, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll said he believes Wilson can be the best quarterback in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson was hampered by injuries throughout last season, but he was still a low-end QB1 for fantasy owners. He is now the focal point of Seattle's offense, and his scrambling ability gives him enormous upside.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson hosting workouts

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 19:01:42 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson hosted voluntary workouts ahead next week's official OTAs. "It's about bringing guys together to work and be on the same page, communication, getting the signals down right, getting the routes, and the depth and the timing and everything in sync," Wilson said.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson was banged up most of last year, but he still finished as a QB1. With his running ability, his ceiling is as high as any player at the position.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson made history last year

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 15:53:38 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson became the fastest quarterback to win 50 games in NFL history. Wilson has started for the Seahawks since the first game of his rookie season in 2012 and has not missed a game since then. He is tied with Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan for the most wins in a quarterback's first five seasons (56).

Fantasy Tip: Wilson struggled with injuries through the first several games of last season, but his toughness prevailed. Despite throwing just 21 touchdowns, Wilson still achieved QB1 status, partly thanks to his running ability. As long as he remains healthy, Wilson should be drafted as a QB1.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson had issues on the road

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 10:24:25 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 2,038 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 2,181 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions at home.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson played well at times this season but ranked in the top five in terms of sacks, which affected his stats during the year. He will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game in 2017 and can be a solid No. 1 quarterback for fantasy owners.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson up and down in loss

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 17:44:00 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 17 of his 30 pass attempts for 225 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran six times for 49 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries and a leaky offensive line hampered Wilson for much of the year, but he still has a high ceiling thanks to his running ability. If you can grab him at a discounted price, don't hesitate to draft him as your QB1 in 2017.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson may shed knee brace

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 07:20:05 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee) may shed the knee brace he has worn since suffering a sprained medial collateral ligament in Week 3 for the playoffs. "I don't know if he's 100 percent," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. "He's probably not running 4.4 like he did when he was coming out of the combine, but obviously he still runs well enough to be able to do the things we need him to do."

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has been markedly limited since his knee injury as he ran for a career-low 259 yards and hasn't been able to improvise or execute bootlegs as well. The Detroit Lions have been susceptible to opposing QBs the final five weeks, but their top corner Darius Slay (hamstring) was hurt for a lot of that. Wilson is a decent QB1 with what is there to choose from in playoff formats.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 29 of his 45 pass attempts for 350 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He also rushed 10 times for a team-high 36 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson saved his best for last for his patient fantasy owners, posting seven touchdown throws over his past two games after managing a total of 13 TD passes in his first 13 games. He was healthy for the second half of the season and re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option after a tough start.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson tosses three scores

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 20:48:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 19 of his 26 pass attempts for 229 yards, three touchdowns and an interception and ran six times for 12 yards in a 24-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: After a five-turnover disaster last week, Wilson bounced back nicely. He has been inconsistent this year, but he will have QB1 upside again in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson misfires

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 06:08:50 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw a career-high five interceptions Sunday, Dec. 11, against the Green Bay Packers. He was 22-for-39 for 240 yards and a touchdown in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Two of the picks were on deflected balls, but it was a bad showing in what has been a down year. He has now thrown 13 TDs and 10 INTs on the season, and he's a week-to-week decision in fantasy.
