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. Nov 20 - 11:51 PM

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.
Nov 9 - 11:55 PM

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.
Nov 5 - 8:26 PM

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.
Oct 31 - 2:16 PM

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.
Oct 29 - 7:27 PM

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.
Oct 22 - 9:18 PM

Russell Wilson completed 24-of-37 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Seahawks' 16-10, Week 5 win over the Rams.

Wilson added five carries for 16 yards. It was a quiet day for the Seahawks' offense against a Rams defense that had been producing weekly shootouts. Wilson and company relied on the defense to tame Jared Goff and pull off the road upset (seriously). The Seahawks once again had no running game, putting everything on Wilson's shoulders. His 2017 protection has been worse, but he was still often running for his life. Following the Seahawks' Week 6 bye, Wilson gets the Giants in East Rutherford. He'll be a lower-end QB1.
Oct 8 - 7:22 PM

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-26 passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Seattle's Week 4 win over the Colts.

Wilson was also a factor in the run game, adding 38 yards on four carries and another TD. Two of Wilson's five incompletions were interceptions on forced throws to Jimmy Graham, with one a flat out drop. After a slow start behind Seattle's shaky offensive line, Wilson has rebounded the last weeks. Wilson is on pace for 4,096 yards and a 28:8 TD/INT ratio through the first month of the season.
Oct 1 - 11:54 PM

Russell Wilson completed 29-of-49 passes for 373 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Seahawks' 33-27, Week 3 loss to the Titans.

Wilson added seven carries for 26 yards. The Seahawks were once again mired in offensive misery until their final drive of the first half, where Wilson marched them 86 yards in 49 seconds. From that point on, it was raining points and yards. In fact, Wilson's 373 yards were a new career high. He got cooking once the Seahawks abandoned the run and went fast-paced behind their awful offensive line. The performance was especially encouraging since it came on the road. Headed home against the lowly Colts, Wilson will be a high-upside QB1 for Week 4.
Sep 24 - 7:34 PM

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-39 passes for 198 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 34 yards on 12 carries in the Seahawks' Week 2 win over the 49ers.

It was another disappointing day for Wilson, who was running for his life behind Seattle's atrocious line. Wilson did not help matters, however, fleeing from clean pockets on the rare occasions they occurred and missing high on several throws. He also should have been picked at least three times. He stepped up when it mattered most, though, somehow escaping pressure and creating time before finding Paul Richardson in the end zone for the game-winning score. The problem is that the touchdown was Seattle's first this season, and the offensive line is not going to have an easier time next week in Tennessee. Wilson is too good to drop, but his owners should be looking for alternate options until this offense gets back on track.
Sep 17 - 7:44 PM

Russell Wilson completed 14-of-27 passes for 158 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Seahawks' 17-9, Week 1 loss to the Packers.

Wilson added two carries for 40 yards. As was the case in many of the Seahawks' 2016 road performances, Wilson was running for his life behind his sieve-like offensive line. Healthy — for now — Wilson continually evaded the oncoming rush, but was routinely flushed into spots where it was impossible to make plays. There was little he or the Seahawks' pass catchers could do, especially with the running game gaining zero traction. There aren't reinforcements walking through that door, meaning it's probably going to be another highly-uneven year for Wilson. He does have a prime bounce-back opponent for Week 2, as the Seahawks will be hosting the 49ers.
Sep 10 - 7:37 PM

Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell attributes Russell Wilson's down 2016 solely to injury.

Bevell was asked if teams had maybe "figured out" Wilson. "What they figured out is that he couldn’t move," Bevell quipped. Even as Wilson began to slowly get healthy near the end of the season, Bevell contends he was never "full Russell." It's a contention borne out by Wilson's 2016 film. There were games where he could barely move. Staying 100 percent healthy will remain a challenge behind Seattle's sub-par offensive line, but Wilson is a no-brainer bounce-back candidate.
Sep 7 - 4:09 PM

Russell Wilson completed 13-of-19 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

Wilson looked vintage in this game, consistently escaping pressure and creating opportunities for big plays down the field. He hit Jimmy Graham for a 30-yard gain with a bullet down the seam at the end of the first half, and he put a perfectly placed ball over Doug Baldwin's shoulder after the break. Fully healthy, Wilson looks back to the form which made him a fourth-round pick a year ago, and he will come at a much cheaper price this time around.
Aug 25 - 10:08 PM

Russell Wilson completed 13-of-18 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

And he did almost all of it against the Vikings' first-team defense. The unfortunate news was Wilson losing LT George Fant to a potentially serious leg injury. Wilson was as sharp as ever, hooking up with Kasen Williams and Doug Baldwin for big gains and showing complete command of the offense as both a rusher and passer. Wilson has fantasy overall QB1 upside in his sixth NFL season.
