Seahawks | Russell Wilson excelling in fourth quarter

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 11:14:04 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has set an NFL record with 17 touchdowns in the fourth quarter this season.

Fantasy Tip: He's already set that record with three games to play. Wilson is simply a different player later in games. Never count out Wilson and the Seahawks and keep starting him as long as he's healthy no matter the matchup. Heading into 2018, he'll be a top-tier QB1.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was 17-for-31 for 271 yards, three touchdown and three interceptions in their loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Dec. 10. He also rushed five times for 50 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The three picks aren't pretty, but it was a pretty solid fantasy day for him against one of the better pass rushes. He'll have another tough matchup against the Los Angeles Rams next week as a QB1.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson doing it all for Seahawks

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 11:17:57 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not only second in the NFL in passing yards (2,801), but he easily leads Seattle in rushing yards (376) and is second among quarterbacks in rushing yards. He is averaging 317.7 total yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson hasn't really had much of a choice but to be the catalyst for the Seahawks in the passing game and the running game. Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise and others have done next to nothing this year. At the same time, Wilson is frequently forced to scramble due to poor offensive line play. Wilson is an elite QB1 for the rest of the season and an MVP candidate.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson piles up numbers on MNF

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 23:11:08 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 26-of-42 passes for 258 yards, a pair of touchdowns and an interception in the team's Week 11 loss Monday, Nov. 20, against the Atlanta Falcons. He also ran the ball seven times for 86 yards, while picking up a rushing touchdown as well. Additionally, he also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the two turnovers, Wilson had a really strong showing on Monday night that most likely lifted a lot of fantasy owners to victory in comeback fashion. The rushing stats are especially what stick out, as the 86 yards on the ground represent a season high for Wilson. Furthermore, this will go down as Wilson's fifth straight game with at least two touchdown passes. He's one of the most dependable QB1 options an owner can go with.

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 15:05:08 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (jaw) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has been playing better over the last month and will have all of his weapons available. He will be facing one of the better pass defenses in the NFL but can still be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson almost had jaw broken

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 06:33:11 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (jaw) said that he nearly broke his jaw after taking a hit from Arizona Cardinals LB Karlos Dansby during Week 10's game. Doctors had to reset his jaw and he had to wear a special mouthguard while being on a mostly liquid diet for part of the week. Wilson is still experiencing soreness but said that he feels better.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson was a full participant in the team's first two practices of the week and will be able to play in Monday night's game versus the Atlanta Falcons without any limitations. He should be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats.
