The MLB's Texas Rangers traded Russell Wilson to the New York Yankees.
Wilson played his college baseball at NC State and was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round in 2010. In 2013, he was dealt to the Rangers and went to spring training in 2014 and 2015. He has always dreamed of playing for the Yankees, Wilson says, and plans to attend spring training with the Bronx Bombers this year. Wilson still has no plans to be a dual-sport athlete.

Russell Wilson completed 18-of-29 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' 26-24, Week 17 loss to the Cardinals.

Wilson added five rushes for 36 yards. As was the case far too often this season, Wilson and the entire offense were nearly nonexistent behind the Seahawks' abominable offensive line for most of the first half. Things, as usual, picked up after the break, but it was too late in a must-win game. After playing hurt for nearly all of 2016, Wilson kept himself in the 2017 MVP conversation with Houdini-like play behind his awful blocking, but the bottom fell out too often for Wilson to be a true contender for the hardware. The 'Hawks have to get Wilson more help for 2018. Stunningly, Wilson will turn 30 next November.

Russell Wilson completed 14-of-21 passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns while adding 30 yards on eight carries Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 16 win over the Cowboys.

He took three sacks for a loss of 33 yards. Wilson obviously didn’t stuff the stat sheet on Sunday, but he did enough to keep Seattle’s dim playoff hopes alive. He got Seattle on the scoreboard with a three-yard touchdown to Jimmy Graham late in the first half and hit pay-dirt again by slinging a six-yard score to Doug Baldwin early in the fourth quarter. Wilson had been nipping at Tom Brady’s heels in the MVP race (Todd Gurley might be the frontrunner now) but has slowed down by throwing for a combined 235 yards over his last two games. The 9-6 Seahawks wrap up the regular season with a must-win game against the Cardinals on New Year’s Eve.

The Seahawks have been fined $100,000 for failing to follow the concussion protocol with Russell Wilson in Week 10.

"There was a failure in the application," the NFL and NFLPA concluded after a joint review. In addition to the fine, both the coaching and medical staffs will be required to attend "remedial training regarding the protocol." It hasn't been unusual for the Seahawks to push boundaries during the Pete Carroll era. Their handling of the Wilson situation was so flagrant that the league had to act.

Russell Wilson completed just 14-of-30 passes for 142 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' 42-7, Week 15 loss to the Rams.

Wilson rushed for 39 yards on five attempts, fumbled twice (losing one), took a safety on an intentional grounding call, and took seven sacks in the embarrassing home defeat. The Seahawks were getting annihilated from the jump, going into the half in a 34-0 hole. Wilson's lone touchdown pass was a garbage-time 26-yard hookup with Luke Willson with Seattle down by 40. Wilson's brutal game comes at an awful time for fantasy owners in semifinals week. The Seahawks will travel to Dallas in Week 16 with the Cowboys welcoming back Ezekiel Elliott.

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-31 passes for 271 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions while adding 50 yards rushing on five carries in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Jaguars.

In his toughest matchup of the season, Wilson had his hands full early on. He hit halftime with a season-low 36 yards to go along with an interception. Wilson then found the long ball in the second half, connecting on gains of 43, 61 and 74 yards in the second half, with the last two being touchdowns to Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett for fourth quarter. Those two touchdowns gave Wilson 17 fourth quarter passing touchdowns on the season, an NFL record for a single season. Wilson did throw the three picks - two to A.J. Bouye and one to Jalen Ramsey-but still turned in a top-5 fantasy week in his toughest assignment of the season. Wilson will be a set and forget QB1 option next week when the Seahawks host the Rams.

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns in Seattle's Week 13 win over the Eagles.

Wilson remained a factor in the run game, adding 31 yards on six carries. He was under constant pressure, but made plays out of the pocket all night. Wilson threw all three of his touchdowns in the red-zone, with his highlight a perfectly placed fade to Jimmy Graham from 11 yards out. He's carried Seattle all season -- accounting for over 80 percent of their total offense. Wilson will get a tough Week 14 matchup with Jacksonville's secondary.

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-34 passes for 228 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception while rushing seven times for 25 yards and a score in the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the 49ers.

Both offenses were dreadful in the first half, and Wilson headed into the break with just 80 yards passing and a bad interception he threw on the opening play of the game. He did convert a 49ers fumble into a short touchdown run, but it was still a bad half of football. Things improved after the break, however, as Wilson led touchdown drives on each of Seattle's first two possessions, hitting Nick Vannett for a 17-yard score and Jimmy Graham from one-yard out. It was not a vintage day from Wilson, but it was enough to get the win. Averaging almost three total touchdowns over the last six games, Wilson will be a locked-in QB1 next week against the Eagles.

Russell Wilson completed 26-of-42 passes for 258 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Seahawks' 34-31, Week 11 loss to the Falcons on Monday night.

Again the team's leading rusher, Wilson added 86 yards and a third touchdown on a team-high seven carries. Wilson's night started off on the wrong foot with an early interception on the opening drive to put Seattle in a 14-0 hole, but he did everything in his power to will the Seahawks back. It just wasn't enough in another game he was literally running for his life behind a turnstile offensive line. Wilson also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. His touchdown passes went to Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin, with Baldwin's being a wide-open hookup late in the fourth quarter to pull the Seahawks within three points. Blair Walsh missed a 52-yard field goal as time expired. Arguably the top fantasy quarterback right now, Wilson will be a locked-in elite QB1 next week at the Niners.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Seahawks are "expected to face consequences" after not following the league's concussion protocol with Russell Wilson in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals.

Wilson shouldn't have been allowed to re-enter Thursday's game without being cleared by an independent physician, but the Seahawks risked his health anyway. The NFL will decide on a punishment after conducting a "thorough review." It's possible the Seahawks could face up to $150,000 in fines.

Russell Wilson completed 22-of-32 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' 22-16, Week 10 win over the Cardinals.

In what was a knock down, drag out war of attrition marred by penalties and injuries to key players, the Seahawks survived for a short-week road win. Wilson's scores were a jump ball and layup, respectively, to Jimmy Graham. His biggest play of the night was a 54-yard completion to Doug Baldwin in the fourth quarter where he spun out of at least two sacks, and literally scrambled for over 30 yards (NBC charted it). Throwing across his body across the field, he found a leaping Baldwin on the left sideline. It was a Tony Romo signature play. Playing truly elite football, Wilson has 11 days to get ready for the Falcons on Monday Night Football.

Russell Wilson completed 24-of-45 passes for 297 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Seahawks' Week 8 loss to the Texans.

Wilson also added 10 carries for 77 yards. He struggled throughout the game when passing and was constantly under pressure. He underthrew multiple open receivers and one of his interceptions came on a forced throw across his body. The Seattle offense played poorly the majority of the game, largely due to bad offensive line play and being unable to run the ball consistently. His first touchdown came on a pass to TE Luke Willson on a play action bootleg in which he was wide open. His second touchdown came late in the fourth quarter on a 30-yard touchdown pass to WR Doug Baldwin. Despite not playing all that well, Wilson still scored plenty of fantasy points.

Russell Wilson restructured his contract so the Seahawks could trade for Duane Brown.

Wilson agreed to turn $6.26 million of his $12.6 million 2017 salary into a signing bonus that can be prorated over the final three years of his contract. It's a no-brainer from Wilson's perspective, as he gets a massive upgrade at left tackle and doesn't lose any money.

Russell Wilson completed 26-of-41 passes for 452 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in the Seahawks' Week 8 win over the Texans.

With Deshaun Watson dealing on the other side, Wilson stepped up to the challenge. As per usual, he did a great job creating time for his receivers to get open as he did on the first of Paul Richardson’s touchdowns, and he set up the second with a spectacular 53-yard rainbow to Tanner McEvoy. After the Texans took the lead in the fourth, Wilson threw another pinpoint deep pass to Tyler Lockett for a 54-yard gain and finished the drive with an easy play-action pass to Jimmy Graham for a score. Following yet another Texans score, Wilson appeared to give the game away with an interception, but the Texans left too much time on the clock, allowing Wilson to march 80 yards in just three plays for the game-winning touchdown. Wilson has thrown for 786 and seven touchdowns in the two games following the bye. He is firmly back in must-start territory.

Russell Wilson completed 27-of-39 passes for 334 yards and three touchdowns while adding 10 yards on two carries Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

He was sacked one for a loss of 13 yards. The Seahawks snoozed through the first half but were brilliant after halftime as Wilson spread the wealth with three second-half touchdowns. He connected with Doug Baldwin on a 22-yard touchdown for his first score before uncorking another touchdown in the fourth quarter, this time on a 38-yard flea flicker to Paul Richardson. With the game already in hand, Wilson padded his stats by hitting Jimmy Graham for a two-yard score on his final play from scrimmage. Wilson could have had an even bigger day but overthrew a wide-open Baldwin on what would have been a 63-yard touchdown late in third quarter. Equipped with one of the league’s strongest arms and still mobile as ever, Wilson remains a near-impossible assignment for opposing defenses. He’ll get the Texans at home in Week 8.
