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.
