Seahawks | Russell Wilson could play out deal

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:34:49 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson could play out the 2015 season in the final year of his rookie deal without a contract extension. Wilson and the Seahawks have had no real progress on a long-term contract extension. Wilson is highly unlikely to accept a short-term deal. Wilson is preparing and budgeting as if he'll be on a bargain deal in 2015. It could take another year for both parties to agree on a long-term extension, and Wilson knows a franchise tag in 2016 would likely be for over $20 million.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has been more of a QB2 for fantasy football owners in his first couple years in the NFL. With the addition of Jimmy Graham to the fold and now that Marshawn Lynch is returning, though, Wilson should be a viable QB1 worth owning once the elite quarterback names come off the board.

Seahawks | No talks between SEA, Russell Wilson

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 07:57:25 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not had contract extension talks with the Seattle Seahawks at this point, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson likely will receive an extension at some point, but it does not look like it will happen now. Wilson posted some solid numbers this past season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback next season.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson nearing extension

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:49:38 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson might be on the verge of agreeing to a big and unique contract extension. "From what I've been told they've very close, they're just trying to make sure every single thing is in place before they go forward with this," beat writer Terry Blount said Friday, March 20. "I think it's going to be bigger and crazier and different from what any contract has ever been."

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks signal caller has led the team to back-to-back Super Bowls and one championship. And he has emerged as a Top 10 signal caller at his position for fantasy owners, too.

Seahawks | No timeline for Russell Wilson

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 09:59:06 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson does not have a timeline to get a new deal done, according to general manager John Schneider.

Fantasy Tip: After being one of the biggest bargains in his first couple of seasons, Wilson will likely become one of the league's highest paid players heading into next season. Because of his ability to make plays happen with his legs, Wilson has become much more intriguing in fantasy leagues. However, until the team surrounds more aerial weapons around him, he shouldn't be seen as more than a low-end QB1.

Seahawks | Seahawks talking contract with Russell Wilson

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:48:56 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the club have started contract negotiations, according to general manager John Schneider. A new deal for Wilson will likely make him one of the highest paid players in the league, but Schneider said Wilson might be willing to take less in order to help the team keep some key players. Wilson is scheduled to make $837,000 in 2015 in the final year of his rookie deal.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has taken his squad to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, and he's one of the more physically gifted young quarterbacks in the league. With that said, his fantasy value remains somewhat limited because of Seattle's lack of receiving options around him. What the team lacks in aerial weapons, though, Wilson can make up for with his legs on the ground. Consider Wilson more of a QB2 heading into the 2015 season.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson still supports play call

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 12:41:08 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson still has no doubt in the last play call that turned into a game-clinching interception for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX. "The part I hate is that I have to wait seven months to play another game," Wilson said. "My focus is still on being a Super Bowl-type winning quarterback for this football team."

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has proven himself to be a top-ten fantasy quarterback over the past two seasons, even with a subpart wide receiver corps in 2014. He remains a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback option heading into 2015.

Seahawks | Will face challenge with salary cap

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 13:00:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is expected to become the league's highest-paid player in the offseason, but head coach Pete Carroll thinks the team can avoid salary-cap repercussions for the rest of the team. Last year coming off their Super Bowl win, the Seahawks got rid of DTs Red Bryant and Chris Clemons and let CB Brandon Browner, WR Golden Tate, DT Clinton McDonald and CB Walter Thurmond leave in free agency.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson set for big payday

Wed, 21 Jan 2015 16:38:59 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a base salary of $662,434 this season, which is 25th among starting NFL quarterbacks. However, he will negotiate a contract extension this offseason that will make him one of the highest paid players in the league. A multi-year deal for Wilson is expected to be above $20 million per year with more than $50 million guaranteed. He is already the first player in NFL history to reach two Super Bowls in his first three seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($4,444, 8.89% of cap) will help you save significant dollars at the QB position at FantasyScore for the Super Bowl if you elect to refrain from using Tom Brady.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson tosses three scores

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 20:39:23 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 268 yards and three scores and ran for 22 yards in a 31-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers in the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson was efficient and mistake free as he often is, and regardless of Seattle's opponent in the conference title game, he should make a solid option at FantasyScore next weekend.
