10/26/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 199 yards and rushed for 35 yards in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Insight: He threw one touchdown, as well as an interception, and led the Seahawks to a game-winning, fourth-quarter touchdown. It wasn't a great fantasy day for Wilson, but he remains a solid QB1.
 
Hot10/19/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Russell Wilson owners will be very happy with his 300-yard passing game and 100-yard rushing game. He threw two touchdown passes and ran for another.
Insight: Wilson is normally a guy who puts up around 200 yards passing a 50 yards rushing so for him to hit both bonuses is unexpectedly huge production.
 
10/13/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson couldn't do anything with his arm or legs against a tough Dallas defense.
Insight: Wilson was just 14-of-28 for 126 yards with no touchdown passes and one interception. He did run one in from nine yards out in the third quarter, but it was an unsatisfying day for his fantasy owners.
 
9/22/2014 11:23:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson put together an excellent first half going 11-for-13 for 145 yards and a pair of scores.
Insight: he looked more like Peyton Manning than Manning did in the first half, but Wilson did little in the second half and finished with 223 yards, two TDs and 1 INT.
 
9/14/2014 7:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson finished the afternoon 17-of-25 for 202 yards and two scores, but couldn't engineer a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.
Insight: Wilson was again solid, but not spectacular. He has cracked the 230-yard passing mark just once in the last eight games. He's a much better team leader than fantasy asset. It was curious that the Seahawks risked an injury down nine points with 13 second remaining.
 
9/12/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for just 191 yards in the Week 1 win, though he did manage two touchdowns (Ricardo Lockette, Derrick Coleman).
Insight: Wilson has cracked the 230-yard passing mark just once in the last seven games and his fantasy value is as a low-end starter. He's a much better team leader than fantasy asset. It's a good sign that he targeted talented Percy Harvin a team-high seven times in the opening week and may help his statistics down the road.
 
2/4/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not expected to report to spring training later this month. Wilson was picked by the Rangers in December's Rule 5 draft. SOURCE: Jon Moroso, Fox Sports
Insight: Wilson, a standout second baseman in college, spent two seasons in the minor leagues with Colorado earlier in his career. After winning a Super Bowl with Seattle in just his second season, it looks like he made the right choice by sticking with football.
 
Hot11/3/2013 7:21:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has recorded multiple touchdowns in each of the last three games.
Insight: Wilson threw his first two picks since Week 5 Sunday against the Buccaneers but also had 217 yards and two touchdowns through the air and 36 yards and a score on the ground. He can be trusted as a top-10 quarterback in Week 10 at Atlanta.
 
10/6/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has rushed for 179 yards on 23 carries the last two games after picking up jsut 54 yards on the ground his first three.
Insight: Wilson's fantasy owners need the rushing production because he just isn't a prolific passing option. He had 210 yards, two touchdown and one pick through the air Sunday at Indianapolis, and that represented his second best fantasy passing game of the season.
 
9/22/2013 8:09:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had four touchdowns Sunday against the Jaguars before being pulled in the third quarter.
Insight: The Seahawks pulled out their starters after going up 31-0 with 11:41 remaining in the third. Wilson threw for 202 yards in the game and hit Sidney Rice and Zach Miller two times apiece for scores.
 
9/15/2013 12:42:00 PM
Description: According to NBC Sports' Michele Tafoya, the weather in Seattle for Sunday night's game against the 49ers is not expected to be as bad as initially expected.
Insight: Tafoya says it appears the area will just have light rain. With winds expected to be around 10 mph, fantasy owners can start all relevant Seahawks and Niners without worrying about the weather conditions.
 
1/13/2013 7:16:00 PM
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson set an NFL postseason rookie record by throwing for 385 yards Sunday against the Falcons.

1/6/2013 9:25:00 PM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson outperformed Robert Griffin III in a battle of rookie quarterbacks on Sunday. He finished with 187 yards and a touchdown on 15-of-26 passing.
Insight: He also had 67 yards rushing on eight carries. Wilson was sacked five times but he played well when his team needed him to in the fourth quarter. Next week Wilson will face the Falcons for the first time in his career.
 
12/30/2012 8:00:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson closed out a strong rookie season with 250 passing yards on 15-of-19 passing and one touchdown and 58 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries Sunday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Wilson tied Peyton Manning's rookie passing touchdown record with 26. He added four rushing touchdowns and was a fantasy star in the second half with 1,652 passing yards, 361 rushing yards, 18 touchdowns and just three turnovers in his final eight games.
 
Hot12/17/2012 7:24:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson came threw Sunday when fantasy owners needed it most, throwing for 205 yards on 14-of-23 passing with a touchdown and rushing for 92 yards on nine carries with three more scores.
Insight: Wilson has 13 touchdown passes, three touchdown runs and just three turnovers in his last seven games.
 
Hot11/25/2012 5:38:00 PM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has emerged as a capable fantasy signal-caller with 12 touchdowns and just three turnovers over the last five games.
Insight: Wilson had his fourth consecutive multi-touchdown game Sunday against the Dolphins. Unfortunately those scores went to backup tight end Anthony McCoy and fullback Michael Robinson.
 
10/15/2012 10:50:00 AM
Description: Seahawks rookie Russell Wilson had his best game of the season Sunday against the Patriots, throwing for 293 yards and three touchdowns.
Insight: Wilson came into Sunday's matchup having thrown five interceptions in his last two games. Sunday he only committed one turnover and that came on a lost fumble. Wilson probably won't be as effective when he faces the 49ers' stout defense in Week 7.
 
10/2/2012 12:07:00 PM
Description: Seahawks rookie QB Russell Wilson will remain the starting quarterback said coach Pete Carroll to reporters on Monday. "We’re going with Russell right now," Carroll said.
Insight: Wilson has yet to show any fantasy value this season. Through the first four games, he hasn't thrown for more than 160 yards and his highest point total is a 15-point effort in Week 3. The team's other option, Matt Flynn, is finally past his elbow tendonitis and could be the starter very soon.
 
9/9/2012 8:15:00 PM
Description: Seahawks rookie QB Russell Wilson wasn't exactly impressive in Week 1, completing 18-of-34 for 153 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Wilson ran for 20 yards on eight carries but he also lost a fumble and threw a pick. Don't anoint the rookie a QB1 just yet.
 
8/26/2012 9:56:00 PM
Description: Seahawks rookie QB Russell Wilson has officially been named the starter for Week 1, coach Pete Carroll said in a press conference Sunday.
