Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Sees big things ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson believes he's just now entering the prime of his career, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

The 31-year-old may be slightly past his physical prime, but it would hardly be an oddity for an NFL quarterback to enjoy his best seasons in his early-to-mid 30s. Wilson also happens to have the best receiving corps of his career, with Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf forming a formidable duo at wide receiver while Greg Olsen and Will Dissly (Achilles) figure to get most of the targets at tight end. Seahawks OC Brian Schottenheimer has taken a lot of heat for his run-heavy approach, but he did find a better balance last season, with Wilson jumping from 427 pass attempts in 2018 to 516 in 2019. Another increase isn't out of the question, as Wilson has now reached a 65 percent completion rate and 8.0 YPA in back-to-back seasons.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Comeback falls short in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 21 of 31 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown while adding 64 rushing yards on seven carries in Sunday's 28-23 divisional-round loss to the Packers.

Wilson came up just short of digging his team out of a 21-3 halftime hole, tossing a seven-yard touchdown to Tyler Lockett in the process. This loss puts an end to an excellent campaign from Wilson, who finished with 4,110 passing yards and a 31:5 TD:INT in the regular season before knocking off the Eagles in the wild-card round. Coming off three consecutive seasons with 30-plus touchdown passes and still a threat to add meaningful contributions with his legs any given Sunday, Wilson should be among the first few quarterbacks off the board in fantasy next season.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws for 325 yards, advances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 18 of 30 passes for 325 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-9 wild-card playoff win over the Eagles. He also ran eight times for 46 yards.

Wilson produced his best passing yardage since Week 9 versus the Buccaneers, and he also led the Seahawks in rushing. The veteran signal-caller connected with DK Metcalf on seven passes for 160 yards and a touchdown, including a 36-yard toss to ice the game. Wilson and the Seahawks will travel to Green Bay for the divisional round next Sunday.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Comeback bid falls short
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 25 of 40 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers. He also ran eight times for 29 yards.

Wilson's first three quarters were uninspiring, but he turned it up in the fourth quarter, completing 14 of 23 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown. The Seahawks were inches from scoring with less than a minute left as the veteran signal caller completed a fourth-down pass to rookie John Ursua that was stopped just short of the goal line. Due to substitution issues following the catch, they took a costly delay of game penalty, pushing them back five yards. On Wilson's last opportunity to clinch the NFC West, he connected with Jacob Hollister on fourth down, but the tight end was stopped short of glory. The Seahawks will have to go on the road this postseason, starting in Philadelphia for the wild-card round.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Sets Seattle mark for passing yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 16 of 31 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.

Considering the Cardinals entered the contest with the worst-ranked pass defense in the league, it was an uncharacteristically underwhelming performance for Wilson that likely cost some fantasy managers championships. Despite targeting Tyler Lockett eight times, the two connected just once for 12 yards, and Wilson didn't complete more than one pass to any other wide receiver. However, Wilson walks away from this game with his name etched in Seahawks' history, passing Matt Hasselback and becoming the team's all-time leading passer with 29,501 yards. Furthermore, the Seahawks are still in control of their destiny in the NFC West as they can clinch the division with a win at home over the 49ers in Week 17.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Back on track with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 20 of 26 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.

After throwing an interception in four straight games and rounding out at 7.3 yards per attempt in that stretch, Wilson produced a clean performance against the Panthers, registering 11.0 YPA and completing 76.9 percent of his passes -- his highest marks since Week 5. Wilson rediscovered his chemistry with Tyler Lockett as well, connecting with the wideout eight times for 120 yards and a score, and he spread the ball out to seven other receivers. Fantasy owners should feel comfortable about deploying Wilson in Week 16 against the Cardinals, which allow a league-worst 294.2 passing yards per game.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws for 245 scoreless yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 22 of 36 passes for 245 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams. He also ran five times for 28 yards.

The Seahawks were quickly jettisoned from their typical run-heavy scheme after going down 14-3 early in the second quarter, and they couldn't get their passing game going. Wilson fell victim to the Rams' fierce pass rush with five sacks, and his receivers dropped a few costly passes, as the veteran quarterback failed to throw a touchdown for the first time since Week 14 last season. He also threw an interception in garbage time, marking his fourth straight game with a pick. Wilson and the Seahawks have fallen behind the 49ers in the NFC West, and they'll look to bounce back in Week 15 against the Panthers, who have allowed 229.3 passing yards per game -- 12th-best in the league.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Captures division lead with MNF win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 21 of 31 passes for 240 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Monday's 37-30 win over the Vikings.

If the Seahawks hadn't pulled off the comeback, Wilson may have been haunted by a bizarre pick-six in the second quarter -- his initial pass was swatted back towards him at the line of scrimmage, but his attempt to knock the ball to the ground for an incompletion instead went straight to Vikings linebacker Erik Harris, who took it to the house. However, Wilson bounced back in MVP fashion, leading five straight scoring drives and totaling 27 points in the second half. The Seahawks have won five consecutive games to get to 10-2 and take the NFC West lead, with a Week 14 matchup against the Rams looming.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Struggles to beat Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 13 of 25 passes for 200 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Eagles. He also ran twice for 16 yards.

Wilson's stat line would've looked much better if he connected with a wide-open Jacob Hollister in the end zone and DK Metcalf didn't drop a deep pass at the goal line. The veteran signal-caller faced heavy pressure all afternoon, as he was dropped six times for a loss of 26 yards. It took some trickery to notch his only score of the day, as he found Malik Turner on a flea flicker in the first quarter. Wilson posted a 52 percent completion rate and 8.0 YPA; both marks were his second worst of the season. Nevertheless, the Seahawks bumped to 9-2 on the season (6-0 on the road) and will take the NFC West lead if the Packers take down the 49ers on Sunday Night Football.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Wins second straight OT contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 24 of 34 passes for 232 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday's 27-24 overtime win over the 49ers.

Wilson was uncharacteristically inefficient in the first half, as he was sacked on third down twice and completed seven of 11 passes for 73 yards, although he would have added a touchdown if rookie DK Metcalf hadn't had the ball stripped at the goal line right before halftime. The QB came out firing in the third quarter, converting his next seven passing attempts for 46 yards and a touchdown to Jacob Hollister. However, with a 21-10 lead in hand, the six-time Pro Bowler coughed up a fumble that DeForest Buckner returned for six to bring the 49ers back into the game. Wilson came up clutch at the end of OT, as he ripped off an 18-yard run and completed three passes for 15 yards to set up Jason Myers' game-winning field goal. The Seahawks have closed the gap in the NFC West and are 8-2 heading into their bye week.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Spectacular in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 29 of 43 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday's 40-34 overtime win against the Buccaneers. He also rushed once for 21 yards.

The Buccaneers scored on their opening drive, so Wilson responded on his first offensive possession by completing his first five throws for 73 yards and a touchdown to Tyler Lockett, who ended up being his favorite target all afternoon. That was just the start of Wilson's career day, as he threw an additional touchdown to Lockett, one to D.K. Metcalf and two to Jacob Hollister, including the game-winner. This is the signature game an MVP candidate like Wilson needs, as he now has 22 touchdowns and just one interception through nine games. Wilson will look to take down the division-leading 49ers in Week 10.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Bounces back to defeat Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 14 of 20 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Falcons.

Wilson and the Seahawks got pushed around by the Ravens in Week 7, but they rebounded well. Their offense was buzzing in the first half, as it scored on all but one drive to take a 24-0 lead into halftime. Wilson was responsible for two of those touchdowns, as he found D.K. Metcalf in the end zone twice for scores of four and two yards. Things died down for the Seahawks in the second half, but they afforded themselves enough of a cushion to hold on. Wilson got back on track with elite efficiency, posting a 70.0 completion percentage and 9.1 YPA. He'll look to keep it up against the Buccaneers' weak secondary in Week 9.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws first pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 20 of 41 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens. He also rushed three times for 27 yards.

This was an uncharacteristically inefficient outing for Wilson. Over the first six games, Wilson didn't finish below a 64 percent completion rate or 8.1 YPA, but he rang up at 49 percent and 5.9 YPA in this outing. Wilson also threw his first interception of the season in the second quarter, and Marcus Peters ran it back 67 yards for a touchdown. The Seahawks fell to 5-2 on the season, but Wilson is still firmly entrenched in the MVP conversation. He'll has an appealing bounce-back opportunity in Week 8 against the pitiful Falcons secondary.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Leads team past Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 23 of 33 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns. He also ran nine times for 31 yards and a score.

Wilson looked excellent again as he extended plays to notch his 14th passing touchdown and third rushing touchdown in six games. His game was highlighted by a nine-play, 79-yard game-winning drive in the fourth quarter where Wilson threw for 55 yards and scrambled for eight yards before Chris Carson punched in a one-yard score. Wilson's efficiency continues to be superb, as he has at least 8.1 YPA in every contest, and Sunday's 69.7 completion percentage was his second-lowest of the season.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Magnificent effort to beat Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 17 of 23 passes for 268 yards and four touchdowns in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams. He also ran eight times for 32 yards.

After the Seahawks' first two drives, it looked like it would be a long night for Wilson, as he was constantly on the run from a stout Rams' defensive front. However, he made adjustments, and on the third drive he rolled out to his left, patiently waited for his moment and lofted a pass where only Tyler Lockett could catch it for the game's first touchdown. Wilson ended up throwing three more scores, including a game-winner to Chris Carson with 2:28 remaining in regulation. He finished the contest with a season-high 11.7 yards per attempt, and this was the fourth time in five games he completed over 70 percent of his passes. Wilson will look to continue his efficiency in Week 6 versus the Browns.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws for 240 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 22 of 28 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals. He also ran twice for seven yards.

Wilson is approaching a Drew Brees level of efficiency a quarter of the way through the season, as he's completed 72.9 percent of his passes for eight touchdowns, zero interceptions and 8.6 YPA through four games. He clearly doesn't need a ton of attempts to be a viable fantasy quarterback, which came in handy as the Seahawks shifted to a run-heavy scheme in this contest by affording Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise 25 combined carries, although that was more game script than a pass-averse game plan. Wilson and the Seahawks have a short week before a tough Thursday night matchup against the Rams. Last year, Wilson threw three touchdowns in each game versus the Rams.

September 22, 2019 07:48 PM
Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Piles up four total scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 32 of 50 passes for 406 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Saints. He also ran seven times for 51 yards and two scores.

It was a monster game for Wilson, who was on the run often but avoided a sack for the first time this season. Just as important, this game revealed that coach Pete Carroll was willing to abandon the run-heavy motto if the Seahawks trailed by enough, as Wilson's 50 pass attempts were the most of his career. It also helped that starting running back Chris Carson's fumble woes resurfaced. Nevertheless, Wilson took over this game and will have a good shot to do the same thing in Week 4 versus the Cardinals, who just allowed Kyle Allen to throw for 261 yards and four scores in his second career start.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Extremely efficient in close win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 29 of 35 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Steelers. He also ran six times for 22 yards.

The Seahawks unleashed Wilson after giving him just 20 passing attempts in Week 1, and he reminded us of his supreme efficiency with 8.6 YPA and an 80.5 completion percentage. Although he started slow, Wilson tossed a touchdown to TE Will Dissly late in the first half, and he came out in the second half hot with touchdown passes to Dissly and rookie WR DK Metcalf. Wilson's still a flaky fantasy play because coach Pete Carroll is comfortable running the ball until it's completely necessary to pass. Still, Wilson flashed his upside and should be called upon again to use his arm in a Week 3 matchup versus the Saints.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Does just enough to win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 14 of 20 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Bengals. He also rushed four times for eight yards.

It was a shaky start for Wilson and the Seahawks, as they totaled minus-1 yard through the first two drives. The rest of the game was still shaky, but he finished with a decent stat line by tossing touchdowns to Tyler Lockett and Chris Carson. Getting Carson involved in the passing game was a priority of Seattle's offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer this season, and Wilson made it happen by targeting him a team-high seven times. Wilson also found utility in highly-touted rookie DK Metcalf, throwing to him six times, totaling four completions for 89 yards. While Wilson's ceiling is still capped by a run-heavy offense, he proved efficient for fantasy purposes despite limited reps.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Sharp in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed six of nine pass attempts for 82 yards, adding nine yards on two carries in Sunday's preseason tilt against the Vikings.

Wilson received his first game action after sitting out the first week of the preseason. The 30-year-old looked to be in midseason form over the two drives he commanded, completing two third-down conversions in the face of Minnesota blitzes. Wilson showed good rapport with new top wideout Tyler Lockett (three catches for 27 yards), and a strong showing from rookie DK Metcalf -- after he recovers from knee surgery -- could help alleviate the loss of Doug Baldwin to retirement. Look for the Seahawks' signal caller to get more playing time in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Chargers.
