Russell Wilson completed 14-of-29 passes for 209 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions as the Seahawks defeated Green Bay 28-22 in overtime to advance to Super Bowl XLIX.
Wilson also added a rushing score in a contest the Seahawks trailed 16-0 at halftime. It was arguably the worst game of Wilson's career until late in regulation. Wilson entered the 56-minute mark with eight completions, and couldn't stop tossing picks. His four interceptions were just three fewer than he threw all year. Wilson did work with his legs late in the fourth quarter, however, and pinpointed two deep bombs in overtime to send Seattle to its second-straight Super Bowl. Wilson will have to be much better in two weeks in Arizona, but almost certainly will be as the Seahawks look to get a dynasty going. Jan 18 - 6:37 PM

Russell Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 268 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 31-17 Divisional Round win over the Panthers.

Fantasy's No. 3 quarterback from the regular season picked up right where he left off. Wilson was deadly accurate at the intermediate and deep levels, throwing Doug Baldwin open on a 16-yard can of corn to open the scoring, hitting Jermaine Kearse for a 63-yard bomb in the second quarter and letting talented tight end Luke Willson flash on a 25-yard score in the final frame. Wilson added seven rushes for 22 yards, deftly commanding the offense as he has for the last two seasons. Seattle will host either Green Bay or Dallas in next week's NFC Championship Game as they push toward back-to-back Super Bowls.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Russell Wilson will become the NFL's highest-paid quarterback when the Seahawks sign him to a long-term extension this offseason.

2015 would be the final year of Wilson's rookie contract, but Seattle was always expected to lock up Wilson to an extension this offseason. The Seahawks have benefited from having one of the best quarterbacks in the league under contract for basically peanuts for the last three seasons. Wilson's salary meant Seattle could build an elite team around him without slipping into salary cap purgatory. That luxury will be gone after this season.

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-25 passes for 239 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception in the Seahawks' 20-6, Week 17 win over the Rams.

With the win, the Seahawks have clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye. With Seattle playing so well and every team having to come through the Pacific Northwest, it's hard to see anyone other than the Seahawks going to the Super Bowl from the NFC. The Rams gave Wilson and Co. a run for their money in the first half, taking a 6-0 lead into the locker room and picking off Wilson to go along with three sacks. But Shaun Hill doomed the Rams with a couple horrible interceptions. Wilson and the Seahawks get two weeks to rest up for another title run.

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 339 yards and three total touchdowns in Sunday night's 35-6 Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

The pass yards were Wilson's most this season. He was able to beat the Cardinals for big plays downfield, including an 80-yard touchdown to TE Luke Willson in the first quarter. Both of his touchdowns went to Willson, who he also connected with from 20 yards out. Wilson added 83 yards on five carries and had a five-yard rushing score. It was a solid rebound coming off last week's 195 total yard effort. With the win, Seattle is in the driver seat for the NFC West.

Russell Wilson completed 12-of-24 passes for 168 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Seahawks' 17-7, Week 15 win over the 49ers, adding five carries for an additional 27 yards.

It wasn't Wilson's best game, but he easily out-dueled rival Colin Kaepernick. It's worth nothing that Wilson and the Seahawks received an enormous gift early in the fourth quarter, as Ed Hochuli called maybe the worst roughing-the-passer penalty of all time on a 3rd-and-5 from the 49ers' 15-yard line. Wilson found Paul Richardson for a 10-yard score two plays later, salting the game away. Today wasn't Wilson's best fantasy effort, and Week 16 could be another slow day with Seattle traveling to Arizona.

Russell Wilson completed 22-of-37 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns in Seattle's 24-14, Week 14 win over the Eagles, adding 10 carries for 48 yards and a third score.

Wilson and the Seahawks simply bullied the Eagles in what could be an NFC playoff preview. Wilson's 26-yard rushing score was read-option perfection, while both of his passing touchdowns went to receivers the Eagles completely forgot about. Wilson did make a few mistakes, taking some bad sacks and committing intentional grounding. But all in all, it was one of his best performances of the season. Wilson can be fired up as a mid-range QB1 for next week's matchup with the crumbling 49ers.

Russell Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Thanksgiving night win over the 49ers.

Wilson had his streak of 70-plus yard rushing games snapped at three, but he did manage 19 yards on the ground. Wilson was not asked to do much, but made the big plays when it counted. Wilson escaped immediate pressure to find Tony Moeaki for a 63-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter, and he escaped for a 12-yard scramble to set up a field goal in the fourth quarter. With so much uncertainty at the lower end of the QB1 tier, Wilson's running ability gives him a very valuable floor. Wilson will be a QB1 against the Eagles Week 14.

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-22 passes for 211 yards with one touchdown and rushed 10 times for 73 yards in Sunday's 19-3 Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

With Marshawn Lynch bottled up by a balky back and a swarming Cardinals run defense, Wilson took it upon himself to knock off the division leaders. He did it with error-free football, never coming near a turnover and executing read-option plays beautifully. Wilson remains matchup-proof because of his legs -- he's now gone over 70 rushing yards in five of the last eight games. He'll be a QB1 against even in a difficult matchup at San Francisco on Thanksgiving night.

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-32 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns and rushed eight times for 71 yards in the Seahawks' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs.

Wilson again struggled to push the ball downfield, with his biggest completion of the day coming on a broken play throw to Luke Willson. Wilson was once again effective with his legs, picking up several big first downs on the ground. Wilson's rushing ability gives him a high fantasy floor, but the Seahawks' inability to get anything going in the passing game makes him nothing more than a QB1 streaming option.

Russell Wilson completed 10-of-17 passes for 172 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 38-17 Week 10 win over the Giants.

Wilson made shaky decisions as a passer and only had one good throw (a 60-yard bomb to Jermaine Kearse), but the Giants could not defend the edge. That led to a ridiculous 14-107-1 rushing line, most of which came on designed bootlegs and read-option plays. It's the third time Wilson has gone over 100 rushing yards this season and he now has four rushing touchdowns, stats that would make guys like Eddie Lacy jealous. Wilson's versatility gives him both a high statistical floor and a high ceiling heading into a tough Week 11 game at Kansas City.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he has "recognized" the offense is more effective when they use an up-tempo attack.

The Seahawks have been very effective in the two-minute drill this season, and Carroll attributes that to tempo. "We are better when our tempo is really good, so that is a point of emphasis," Carroll said. "We see how well we’ve done when we’re going at a good pace." With Russell Wilson struggling the last two weeks, the Seahawks are likely looking for anything to spark the offense. An up-tempo approach could lead to more passing attempts for Wilson and a higher fantasy ceiling. With LT Russell Okung and C Max Unger back from injuries, Wilson is shaping up as a decent buy-low candidate.

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-35 throws for 179 yards and no touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 9 win over the Raiders, adding 31 yards on eight runs.

Wilson missed some throws and never established a rhythm in the passing game, but he isn't getting any help from his teammates or the coaching staff, either. The Seahawks' receivers aren't winning -- and OC Darrell Bevell isn't using scheme to get them open -- while the Seahawks' offensive line has become a major problem. That said, Wilson is piling up enough rushing stats to raise his fantasy "floor," and his upside remains high on a weekly basis. He'll be a mid-range QB1 play in Week 10 against a struggling Giants defense that recently lost MLB Jon Beason (toe) and DT Cullen Jenkins (calf).

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-32 passes for 199 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 13-9 Week 8 win at Carolina.

Wilson saved his best for last, engineering a game-winning drive that was capped by a perfect throw to Luke Willson for a 23-year touchdown with 47 seconds left. Before that, however, it was rocky. Wilson threw an ugly duck when Cooper Helfet was wide open in the end zone and tossed a head-scratching pick. Still, he ended with another fine fantasy day once we add in six rushes for 35 more yards. Wilson, now averaging 51.7 rush yards per game, will be a strong QB1 against the Raiders in Week 9.

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-36 passes for 313 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Seahawks' 28-26, Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Wilson racked up an additional 106 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He sure didn't miss Percy Harvin, though we're sure there will be plenty of chatter on the topic this week after Seattle's loss. Frankly, the Rams got lucky and won it with their special teams by returning a punt 90 yards for a touchdown on some trickery before converting a fake punt deep in their own territory late in the fourth quarter. Wilson hooked up with his No. 1 receiver Doug Baldwin seven times for 123 yards and one score. He also found No. 3 TE Cooper Helfet for a score. Wilson will be back on the QB1 map in Carolina next week.
