Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to play fast

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:44:53 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said they are at their best when using an "up-tempo" offense, and the Seahawks have scored on nine of the 12 drives when they have used a no-huddle approach.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has been a bit of a boom-or-bust fantasy play this year, but his high ceiling makes him a lower-end QB1 against the New York Giants in Week 7.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson doesn't do much

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 20:33:42 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 24 of his 37 pass attempts for 198 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He also ran five times for 16 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson did a little bit of everything, but one thing most fans will miss in the box score is his tackle. On an interception, he ran down the cornerback and prevented a pick-six. That was a big key to the game. You'll need to make alternate fantasy plans in Week 6, as Seattle is on its bye.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson totals three TDs

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 21:24:19 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 21 of his 26 pass attempts for 295 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and he rushed four times for 38 yards and another score in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson and the Seattle offense were a bit sluggish in the first half, but they turned it on in the second half and looked very impressive. The Seahawks offense should continue to flourish in Week 5 on the road against a very giving Rams defense.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson tosses four scores

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:34:06 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 29 of his 49 pass attempts for 373 yards and four touchdowns and ran seven times for 26 yards in a 33-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson came alive in the second half, and he ended up throwing for more yards than he did in the first two games combined. The offensive line issues aren't going away, but Wilson has a good chance to deliver another QB1 effort against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

Seahawks | Quiet game for Russell Wilson

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 20:19:37 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 14 of his 27 pass attempts for 158 yards and rushed two times for 40 yards in a 17-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: The Seattle offense looked out of sync all game, and the offensive line still looks shaky. Fantasy owners may have to accept that Wilson will lay the occasional egg, but he is a QB1 candidate against San Francisco in Week 2.

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 20:07:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 13 of his 19 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for four yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson was hampered by nagging injuries for much of last season, but he began to look like himself down the stretch. Look for him to provide midrange QB1 production this year.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson strong in Week 2

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 22:21:21 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was 13-of-18 for 206 yards and a pair of touchdowns Friday, Aug. 18, in a 20-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Seattle didn't dip heavily into its passing game as evidenced by Wilson's 18 throws, but he looked solid midway through the preseason. Wilson grades out now as a mid-range QB1 on a strong Seahawks squad.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson sheds weight

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 07:14:24 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson shed 11 pounds in the offseason after working with a nutritionist. He weighed 225 pounds with 16 percent body fat in March and recently weighed 214 pounds with 10 percent body fat.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson rushed for a career-low 259 yards last season after a high-ankle sprain and a sprained medial collateral ligament. It was a borderline miracle that he didn't miss a game despite those debilitating injuries. He threw for a career-high 4,219 yards with his second-best completion percentage at 64.7 percent. Wilson is a bounce-back candidate as an upper-middle QB1.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham in sync with QB

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 20:22:30 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been more of a complete player than expected and one of QB Russell Wilson's favorite weapons, according to head coach Pete Carroll. "He and Russell are really tuned in," Carroll said. "They spend a lot of time together."

Fantasy Tip: Graham returned to form last year, and he looks locked in as a dependable TE1 heading into 2017.
