Russell Wilson completed 17-of-33 passes for 151 yards and two interceptions while rushing eight times for 80 yards in the Seahawks' Week 12 loss to the Bucs.

The offense (3) barely managed more points than the defense (2) in a dreadful affair. Wilson did manage to top his season total entering the game with 80 rushing yards, but they did not come under good circumstances. Wilson was under constant pressure from the first snap, and his rushing total was just the result of him having to run for his life. The pressure seemed to affect Wilson, who misfired on several passes downfield including what could have been a couple long plays to Tyler Lockett. His final interception, which also targeted Lockett deep, ended a game where the Seahawks converted once on 11 third-down attempts. Wilson struggled in this game, but he had been playing well coming into this week. He will have a good shot to bounce back on Sunday night against the Panthers.
Nov 27 - 7:17 PM

Russell Wilson completed 18-of-31 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 15 yards and another score in the Seahawks' Week 11 win over the Eagles.

The overall passing line does not look great, but Wilson looked back to normal in this game. He hooked up with both Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett for long catches early, and he made a spectacular play to escape pressure and flick the ball to Jimmy Graham on his only passing touchdown. He also leaked out the backside on a fake toss to Doug Baldwin for the first touchdown reception of his career. Finally healthy, Wilson was able to evade pressure and make plays with his legs all day. He will be a high-end QB1 in Tampa Bay next week.
Nov 20 - 7:44 PM

Russell Wilson completed 25-of-37 passes for 348 yards and three touchdowns in Seattle's Week 10 win over the Patriots.

Wilson looked as healthy as he’s been all year. He led Seattle to scoring drives on his first three possessions and was able to make some plays outside the pocket. All three of Wilson's touchdowns went to Doug Baldwin, with the game winner coming on a 15-yard pass to the back of the end-zone. After a slow start, Wilson has a 5:0 TD/INT ratio over the last two weeks. He's a back-end QB1 against the Eagles in Week 11.
Nov 13 - 11:51 PM

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-26 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' 31-25, Week 9 win over the Bills on Monday night.

He also rushed for 10 yards and a third touchdown. It was Wilson's first rushing score of the season, and the three scores were his first touchdowns since all the way back in Week 4. To put it bluntly, Wilson had been a total disaster the previous month. He looked as healthy as ever against Buffalo, looking more spry on his runs and rollouts. Wilson's two touchdown passes both went to Jimmy Graham, who made incredible one-handed catches in the end zone on both plays. The two hooked up eight total times for 103 yards. Wilson averaged a robust 10.8 YPA and was responsible for the Bills benching LCB Ronald Darby before halftime. Wilson will look to build on this performance when Seattle travels on a short week for a tough road spot at New England in Week 10.
Nov 7 - 11:57 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, pectoral) is practicing fully for Week 9.

Wilson hasn't looked close to 100 percent this year while dealing with a slew of nagging injuries. He's been hesitant to tuck and run, which has greatly hindered him in fantasy. Wilson will be a borderline QB1 against the Bills on Monday Night Football.
Nov 3 - 8:14 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson could shed his knee brace soon.

Wilson's mobility has been limited while wearing braces on both his ankle and knee. He has already gotten rid of the ankle brace, and it sounds like the knee brace is soon to follow. Wilson did rush for 11 yards against the Saints, but he still looked hesitant to take off. He is on pace for just 101 rushing yards this season.
Oct 31 - 1:12 PM

Russell Wilson completed 22-of-34 passes for 253 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Seattle's 25-20, Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Wilson sort of tried to run in this one, carrying the rock three times for 11 yards, but was still extremely hesitant to tuck and run. That's been the story of Wilson's 2016. Hampered by injury after injury, his dual-threat dynamism has been sapped. Wilson has zero touchdowns over his past three starts. He'll be on the QB1/2 borderline for next week's game against the Bills.
Oct 30 - 4:45 PM

Russell Wilson returned to a full practice on Friday.

Limited Wednesday and Thursday with knee and pectoral injuries, Wilson resumed practicing at full tilt Friday and will be all systems go at New Orleans.
Oct 28 - 4:41 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, pectoral) remained limited on Thursday.

Wilson has guaranteed he'll suit up against the Saints, but he's looking seriously limited. He could already barely move before the pec injury. A rethink might be required of Wilson's top-five Week 8 status.
Oct 27 - 7:14 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, pectoral) said he'll play against the Saints.

It's been one injury after another for Wilson this season, but he's yet to miss a game. Speaking Thursday, Wilson said he'd suit up, but didn't go over the top downplaying his injuries like he did earlier this season. He also revealed his knee injury was supposed to sideline him for four weeks. Wilson could be quite limited, even by his 2016 standards, in New Orleans.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If you aren't comfortable rolling Wilson out in DFS given his injury concerns, Christine Michael is a fine way to expose yourself to a high-scoring offense. New Orleans has allowed at least 27 points in eight straight home games, and with Seattle coming in as favorites (the line opened at 3.5), we could certainly see a 25 touch day for Michael in a dream spot. NO has allowed 1.67 rushing TDs per game to RBs in addition to over 100 yards per game on the ground, so there isn’t much incentive to playing the fade on Michael.
Oct 27 - 3:43 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, pec) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Seattle is managing Wilson's reps after Sunday night's overtime tie with Arizona. Wilson hasn't look close to fully healthy this year, but isn't in danger of missing Week 8. He'll have a chance to get on track with a matchup against the Saints.
Oct 26 - 7:59 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) is on pace for 88 rushing yards.

Wilson rushed once for negative two yards Sunday night against the Cardinals, and he has not rushed for more than seven yards in any game since Week 2. Wilson has never had fewer than 489 rushing yards in a season. Coach Pete Carroll said after the game Wilson's lack of mobility is "a factor" in the offense's struggles, and it does not seem to be improving even as Wilson practices in full every week. The only good news is a trip to New Orleans can be a quick cure for a struggling offense.
Oct 24 - 9:45 AM

Russell Wilson completed 24-of-37 passes for 225 yards in Sunday night's tie with the Cardinals.

It's the second straight game Wilson's been held without a touchdown. The Cardinals defense completely shut down Seattle, holding them to 11 first downs. Wilson got all his yards deep into overtime and put the Seahawks in position to win, but Steven Hauschka missed a chip shot field goal. Wilson's injuries and lack of a running game are a concern to his ROS outlook, but he's a good bet to bounce back against the Saints in Week 8.
Oct 24 - 12:30 AM

Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) is practicing fully for Week 7.

Wilson has looked somewhat reluctant to tuck and run compared to previous seasons, which is obviously a product of his nagging ankle and knee issues. That's been a big hit to his fantasy value, though Wilson has still done enough to warrant weekly QB1 consideration. He'll draw the Cardinals on Sunday night.
