Russell Wilson dropped over 10 pounds this offseason after modifying his diet.
Wilson weighed over 225 pounds in March, but he recently weighed in at 214 pounds with 10 percent body fat. Coming off an injury-marred season, the renewed focus on nutrition will help Wilson stay healthy while the lost weight will make him even more dangerous as a runner. The offensive line remains a large question mark, but Wilson should be in line for a bounce-back season. Jun 29 - 10:02 AM

Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell said Russell Wilson is "all the way back."

One of the league's top scramblers, Wilson rushed for a career-low 259 yards last season and was mostly confined to the pocket while battling knee and ankle injuries. Now that he's had time to recover, Wilson is looking like himself again. "His throws have good zip and he is showing good command," said Bevell after minicamp. Wilson should bounce back in a big way this year.

Russell Wilson says he feels 100 percent healthy.

"I feel great," said Wilson. "Running fast, feeling strong, throwing the ball well and all that. It’s been a great offseason." Wilson dealt with a high-ankle sprain and MCL injury last year, but didn't miss any games. Fully healthy and playing behind an improved offensive line, Wilson is a good bet to bounce back from his down 2016.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson "looks great moving around."

It is good to hear after Wilson posted easily the worst rushing season of his career while dealing with a high-ankle sprain and sprained MCL last season. "It just feels so much different than it did for so long of that season," Carroll said. "So we’ve got to take care of him, look after him, and have tremendous expectations for Russell’s performance next year." Despite struggling with his mobility, Wilson still managed to finish as a top-12 overall quarterback in 2016, and he has the upside for much more when healthy.

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-30 passes for 225 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Seahawks' 36-20, Divisional Round loss to the Falcons.

He added six carries for 49 yards. True to form for the 2016 Seahawks, Wilson was under siege from the opening snap, often having the rush in his face before he could even make his first read. Much healthier than he was early in the season, Wilson did an excellent job of negating it by either climbing or abandoning the pocket, but too much was put on the Seahawks' franchise player's plate. Limited by injuries nearly the entire year, Wilson wasn't himself this season, but was hardly the 10-5-1 Seahawks' problem. Wilson looks more mature as a passer every year, and showed no physical letdown when at full health. Provided the 'Hawks can at least marginally upgrade their offensive line, Wilson will be a no-brainer "bounce-back candidate" in 2017.

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-30 attempts for 224 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Wild Card win over the Lions.

Wilson was not asked to do much a game Thomas Rawls dominated on the ground, which might have been a good thing in the first half. Under pressure early, Wilson took sacks on back-to-back plays to end a drive in the first quarter after quick pressure forced him to throw the ball away on the first offensive series. His first touchdown pass was a poorly thrown ball which Paul Richardson saved with a spectacular grab -- one of many for Richardson on the night -- and he misfired on a throw which should have resulted in a first-and-goal on the next drive. He did put a dime on Doug Baldwin deep down the left sideline to set up the game-sealing touchdown, however, found Baldwin for another score late, and looked to be completely comfortable in the second half. If the Seahawks are going to hang against with the Falcons offense in Atlanta next week, Wilson will need to play like he did after halftime.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Russell Wilson will shed his knee brace for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Lions.

Wilson has been running more lately, but he still has not looked normal. Perhaps the brace he has been wearing since suffering a left MCL sprain in Week 3 has something to do with that. The Lions have struggled with mobile quarterbacks in recent weeks, giving up 77 rushing yards combined to Dak Prescott and Aaron Rodgers. Wilson is not as safe as Rodgers or Ben Roethlisberger, but a cheaper price and likely lower ownership make him a better tournament play.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Lions have allowed the third-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. While game flow may be a concern with the Seahawks favored by eight, Wilson averaged 25.43 fantasy points when favored by seven or more at home this season (six game sample). Out of that split, he averaged 17.3 points. Wilson is an exciting and relatively sneaky option this weekend.

Russell Wilson said he may shed the brace he has been wearing since suffering a left MCL sprain in Week 3.

"I don't have to keep wearing it," Wilson said. "I'm contemplating what we're going to do here." Wilson switched to a less bulky brace as he moved further away from the injury, but he still does not look quite like himself on the field. Perhaps getting rid of the brace altogether will help. With the offensive line in shambles, the Seahawks will need Wilson at his best to make a deep playoff run.

Russell Wilson completed 19-of-32 passes for 258 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 17 game against the 49ers.

Trevone Boykin came in to close out the game early in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks surprisingly rested Wilson early despite only leading by one score. They clearly were unwilling to take any chances with their franchise quarterback with a playoff berth locked up. The decision was likely influenced by Atlanta's dominance over New Orleans in a game at the same time slot. The Falcons will be the NFC's No. 2 seed behind the Cowboys.
Jan 1 - 7:17 PM

Russell Wilson completed 29-of-45 passes for 350 yards and four touchdowns and rushed 10 times for 36 yards in the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

Seattle's offense was putrid in the first half as Wilson absorbed five sacks in the first two quarters and Tyler Lockett suffered what appeared to be a fractured leg a half-yard short of the goal line. On the strength of Wilson's arm and legs, the Seahawks rallied back from a huge deficit to tie the game at 31, only for Chandler Catanzaro to boot the game-winning field goal as time expired. Wilson isn't getting a lot of help from his teammates -- especially his offensive line -- but he is stringing together big fantasy performances. He has another cupcake matchup in Week 17 at San Francisco.

Russell Wilson completed 19-of-26 passes for 229 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Seahawks' 24-3, Week 15 win over the Rams.

He added six rushes for 12 yards. It was hardly an inspiring performance from Wilson and company, but they were free to experiment and try to work out the kinks against the noncompetitive Rams. Wilson, predictably, faced lots of pressure, but took only two sacks. Most encouragingly, he continued to heat up his connection with Tyler Lockett, finding him for a wide open 57-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Wilson also underthrew a potential deep score to Doug Baldwin. It wasn't a "put the concerns to rest" evening. Wilson faces a stiff Christmas Eve test in the Cardinals.

Russell Wilson completed 22-of-39 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown, and five interceptions in the Seahawks' 38-10 loss in Green Bay Week 14.

Wilson imploded in this one. The five interceptions will be the story, but two of them were arguably not his fault and one came with the game well out of reach. The real concern was Wilson’s inability to hit open receivers down field, a problem he displayed two weeks ago in Tampa Bay as well. The game could have been considerably different if Wilson hooked up with Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham on what were sure touchdowns in the first half, but both passes were well overthrown. The Seahawks have basically locked up the NFC West, but they will need Wilson to play better if they hope to make a deep run in the playoffs. The good news is the entire team has a great get-right spot at home against the Rams on Thursday night.

Russell Wilson completed 26-of-36 passes for 277 yards a touchdown and an interception in Seattle’s Week 13 win over the Panthers.

Wilson led Seattle to an early lead in a puntless first half. He wasn’t asked to do much after that, but salvaged his night with a goal-line TD to Jimmy Graham. Wilson had one of his better rushing games, adding 29 yards on three carries. He’s a midrange QB1 for Week 14 against the Packers.

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.

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.
