Seahawks | Russell Wilson to play baseball in spring

Mon, 03 Feb 2014 19:36:16 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson plans to attend spring training with the Texas Rangers, according to his agent. He was selected in that sport's Rule 5 draft in December.

Fantasy Tip: Seattle fans and fantasy owners likely need not worry about Wilson ditching football for baseball, obviously. It's interesting that he will work with the team and hasn't given up his baseball completely, though.

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 23:49:45 -0800

Seahawks | Russell Wilson comfortable with Percy Harvin

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:46:17 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson suggested that he's already comfortable with WR Percy Harvin (hip) despite the fact that Harvin has yet to make his season debut. The two did some individual drills in practice last week. "I feel very comfortable with him already," Wilson said. "We talk about game stuff all the time. He's up here all the time just getting ready. So I think the biggest thing is just continuing to throw to him, continue to just do what it takes to have that chemistry."

Fantasy Tip: Harvin should immediately become a focal point of the offensive game plan, especially now that Sidney Rice (knee) is done for the year. When Harvin returns is unknown, but it's expected to be soon. He should be owned in all leagues.

Seahawks | O-line struggles to protect Russell Wilson

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:11:04 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks' patchwork offensive line allowed QB Russell Wilson to be sacked seven times in the team's 14-9 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 8 Monday, Oct. 28. The run blocking wasn't much better in the victory. "We had a million problems in protection," head coach Pete Carroll said. "The Rams rushed like crazy and we did a ton of stuff to try to offset it, but nothing helped us." Seattle only had 135 yards of total offensive in the contest, with 80 of them coming on a passing touchdown to WR Golden Tate.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be at least a couple of weeks before Seattle gets Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini back, so it might be a continuous struggle to protect Wilson until then. This trend also isn't good for Marshawn Lynch.
