Russell Wilson completed 16-of-21 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason game, rushing three times for two yards.
We'd say he's ready for the regular season. The highlight was an absurd third quarter scramble where Wilson bought time for seemingly minutes on end before finally finding Tyler Lockett in the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown. It was the kind of play that sets Wilson apart, and has his fantasy arrow still screaming upward after years of continual improvement. Wilson finishes the summer 24-of-38 for 303 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He's an elite QB1. Aug 26 - 12:03 AM

According to Football Outsiders, Russell Wilson was the most successful quarterback in the league when working from a clean pocket.

He was also the fourth-best quarterback while under pressure, but his DVOA of 86.4 percent was far and away the best when unpressured. PFF's charting agrees, showing Wilson completed almost 73 percent of his passes and compiled a 26-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio when unpressured last season. These stats raise questions about the Seahawks' decision to basically ignore the offensive line over the last several years. While Wilson has been excellent regardless, it appears he could be even better if given time to throw.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson has "made a clear step ahead" this offseason.

"His command is all-time," said Carroll. "We saw him throw the ball all over the field throughout the offseason and he's been strong and accurate and really precise about stuff. He has had a great offseason." Wilson let it rip last year, setting new career-highs in attempts (483), completions (329), touchdowns (34) and passing yards (4,024). He's a top-five QB1 pick for 2016.

Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks' 2016 offense will resemble its form in the second half of last year.

"Our rhythm throughout camp, we stayed connected to what we did in the second half of the year,’’ Carroll said. "We went in determined to do that, and right from the get-go when we got back here on the field we were at it with tempo and timing." Long a run-foundation team, the Seahawks embraced more spread concepts and a ball-out-quick passing game following their Week 9 bye. Russell Wilson compiled a 24:1 TD-to-INT ratio in the final seven weeks.

Russell Wilson earned game MVP as Team Irvin downed Team Rice 49-27 in Sunday night's Pro Bowl.

Wilson went 8-of-12 passing for 164 yards and three touchdowns, engineering scoring drives on three of Team Irvin's first four possessions. He hit Devonta Freeman, Julio Jones, and Todd Gurley for scores, all in the red zone. Wilson's Seahawks teammate, DL Michael Bennett, earned Pro Bowl Defensive MVP by generating the game's lone sack. For Team Rice, Travis Kelce hit pay dirt twice. Team Rice's downfall was turnovers; Tyrod Taylor (3), Derek Carr (2), and Eli Manning (1) combined for six interceptions in the predictably sloppy affair.
Feb 1 - 12:32 AM

Russell Wilson completed 31-of-48 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Seahawks' 31-24, Divisional Round loss to the Panthers.

He also led the team in rushing with 32 yards on three scrambles. Wilson and the Seahawks got off to a nightmarish start, as the Panthers' offense went right down the field on four plays on the opening possession for a touchdown. On Seattle's first drive, Wilson threw a pick-six right to Luke Kuechly on his first attempt. He later threw another interception to Cortland Finnegan, and the Seahawks went into halftime trailing 31-0. A tale of two halves, though, Wilson and the offense put up 24 unanswered points after the break, but the comeback attempt fell short. Wilson threw for 255 yards and all three of his touchdowns in the second half. Two of them went to Jermaine Kearse, and one went to Tyler Lockett in between. Wilson wraps up a career-best season stats-wise after setting career-highs across the board as a passer by completing 329-of-483 passes (68.1 percent) for 4,024 yards (8.3 YPA) and a 34:8 TD:INT ratio. He might be the first quarterback off the board in 2016 drafts.
Jan 17 - 4:23 PM

Russell Wilson completed 13-of-26 passes for 142 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Seattle's 10-9, Wild Card win over the Vikings.

The Seahawks were all but eliminated, but Vikings holder Jeff Locke failed to turn the laces out on what likely would have been a game-winning field goal with 0:26 remaining. It was a miracle akin to the one granted to Seattle in last year's NFC Championship Game. Wilson struggled mightily, and was seemingly in a daze in the sub-zero Minnesota air. He frequently wasted timeouts and under-threw deep balls. His longest gainer came on a broken play following a bad snap. He'll have to be much better in the Divisional Round.
Jan 10 - 4:13 PM

Russell Wilson completed 19-of-28 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns in the Seahawks' 36-6, Week 17 throttling of the Cardinals.

Wilson added five carries for 13 yards. With the Seahawks up 30-6 by halftime, Wilson rested most of the fourth quarter. Playing behind an injury-riddled offensive line, Wilson nevertheless managed at least three scores for the fifth time in six starts, and sent a message to the rest of the NFC that the Seahawks remain a playoff force to be reckoned with. A true superstar, Wilson finishes with new career highs in passing yards (4,024) and passing touchdowns (34). He's the first player in league history to manage 4,000 yards passing, 30 touchdowns and 500 rushing yards in the same season.
Jan 3 - 7:50 PM

Russell Wilson completed 25-of-41 passes for 289 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Seahawks' 23-17, Week 16 loss to the Rams, adding six carries for 39 additional yards.

Wilson also lost a killer late fumble, while his second score came deep into garbage time. His interception was a bonafide arm punt that should have never been thrown. The turnovers were his first in six games. Although Wilson came back down to earth against Pete Carroll nemesis St. Louis, he continued to work his connection with Doug Baldwin, finding his top wideout for 8/118/1. Wilson has a tough Week 17 road matchup in a Cardinals defense that humbled him six weeks ago.

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-30 passes for 249 yards and three touchdowns and rushed five times for 46 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the Browns.

Another ho-hum three touchdowns for the non-elite Wilson, who now has 19 passing scores and zero interceptions in his last five games. Wilson hooked up with Doug Baldwin for two more short scores and threw a dime to Tyler Lockett for a 27-yard touchdown. Wilson now has at least three touchdowns and zero interceptions in each of the last five games. He is the first quarterback in NFL history to accomplish that feat. Needless to say, Wilson will be a top-three play next week against the Rams.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Wednesday that he would not include Russell Wilson in the top tier of NFL quarterbacks.

"Would you put him there with the guys that can transcend their supporting cast?" Pettine asked rhetorically. "The Bradys, whether it's Aaron Rodgers, Brees, Roethlisberger, the ones that you would consider the two, three, four elite guys? No. But he's certainly played himself into that next tier." Pettine indicated he believes Wilson's success is a "function" of Wilson's supporting cast -- a supporting cast that this year has included one of the NFL's worst offensive lines, the loss of Jimmy Graham to a torn patellar tendon, an injury-decimated running game, and no prototype No. 1 receiver. "He plays at a high level, he's very productive and they win," Pettine continued. "Now a lot of that I think is a function, too, is he's the perfect quarterback for what they do. To me it goes both ways."

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-32 passes for 292 yards and five touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

He only rushed once for six yards. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Wilson's dominant four-game run is that he has dissected defenses as a pocket passer, keeping his running ability in his "back pocket," a la Steve Young under Bill Walsh. Wilson now has a 16:0 TD-to-INT ratio over the last month, and a 26:7 TD-to-INT ratio over the course of the season. He'll arguably be the top quarterback play in fantasy football when the Seahawks take on the Browns in Week 15. Seattle will have to continue to lean on Wilson after losing Thomas Rawls (ankle) for the season in Sunday's win.

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-27 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns in Seattle's 38-7, Week 13 win over the Vikings, adding nine rushes for 51 yards and an additional score.

Facing a defense down three of its top players (Linval Joseph, Anthony Barr and Harrison Smith), Wilson faced very little resistance en route to his second straight monster game. Wilson was particularly elusive this afternoon, shedding sack after sack. As a passer, he continued to work his connection with Doug Baldwin, finding his No. 1 receiver for 5/94/2. With 3/4 of the season now in the books, Wilson is suddenly on pace for 4,596 combined yards passing and rushing, and 29 total touchdowns. The yards would easily be a new career best.

Russell Wilson has completed 71.4 percent of his passes from the pocket this season and 83.3 percent in the last two games.

One of the best improvisers in the game, Wilson said he worked on his ability from the pocket this offseason. "I want to use my strengths as much as possible," Wilson said, "but also always want to continue to try to build my game and just work on my footwork and hang in there as much as I can." Wilson lit up the Steelers from the pocket last week and has looked more comfortable behind an improving offensive line. Wilson will face a stiffer test in Minnesota this week, but he will remain a low-end QB1.

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-30 passes for 345 yards with five touchdowns and rushed four times for 14 yards in the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the Steelers.

Wilson established a new career-high by throwing for five touchdown passes. Three of them went to Doug Baldwin, who had the game of his life. This wasn’t a typical Wilson performance. Instead of scrambling and making plays with his feet, Wilson stepped up in the pocket and delivered accurate deep passes for huge gains. Wilson has now completed 45-of-59 passes for 605 yards with eight touchdowns and zero interceptions over his last eight quarters of football. The red-hot Wilson will be a no-brainer QB1 against the Vikings next week even with Jimmy Graham sidelined.
