Seahawks | Russell Wilson likely to be ready

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 22:55:02 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee) is likely to be ready to play in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets. Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 28, that "(he) would be surprised" if Wilson wasn't on the field Sunday. "He's pretty determined to get this done," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: If Wilson has some kind of a setback, or this is just gamesmanship on the part of the Seahawks, rookie Trevone Boykin would get the starting nod. Wilson is a risky play since his health for the full game is not guaranteed, he is facing a decent defense and west-coast teams playing in early kickoffs rarely have rousing success.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson practices in full

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 16:55:14 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is on track to play in Week 4 but likely will be limited in terms of his running ability, which will hurt his fantasy value. Wilson can still be a starting option in some leagues, but owners with better options at the position could consider benching Wilson this week.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson will practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:49:22 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) will participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and is on track to play in Week 4, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch Wilson's practice participation this week to see if he suffers any setbacks. Wilson will be a high-risk, high-reward option this week since his mobility likely will be limited because of the injuries. Owners could consider benching Wilson if they have a quarterback with a better matchup.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson diagnosed with MCL sprain

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:53:40 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) was diagnosed with a sprain to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee suffered during the team's Week 3 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Pete Carroll stated Wilson "feel great" and is recovering well.

Fantasy Tip: Considering he has a high ankle sprain on his right leg, Wilson unlikely "feels great", but Carroll remains optimistic his quarterback will be ready to go in Week 4 versus the New York Jets. The fifth-year quarterback has understandably rushed for only 33 yards this season and can't be expected to be a top-level fantasy option when his mobility is compromised. Owners should seek other options at least for this week.

Seahawks | Sprained MCL for Russell Wilson?

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:01:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee) is believed to have a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee. That is the initial belief after the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He will undergo further testing.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Wilson's injury is a bit more serious and he might be looking at some time off. If so, that's good news for the likes of Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael, who might be asked to shoulder more of the load on offense. It's not great news for Doug Baldwin and the receivers, who would have rookie Trevone Boykin throwing to them.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson nursing knee injury

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 15:17:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) suffered a knee injury in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers, he did not aggravate his ankle injury. Rookie QB Trevone Boykin replaced him and will finish up the game, according to the team.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a difficult season for Wilson and his fantasy owners so far. He will not return to the game with a giant lead late in the third quarter, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Wilson sit again in Week 4 if he doesn't make tremendous improvement throughout the week.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson getting treatment

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 15:16:41 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) left the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers and he is receiving treatment on the sidelines, likely for the ankle injury he has been dealing with the past two weeks. Rookie QB Trevone Boykin replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: With the game out of hand it is likely we won't see Wilson again for the remainder of the day. Fantasy should be worried about this ongoing situation, as Wilson doesn't seem to be getting healthier and might be forced to miss a game or two to rest his injury.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson not on injury report

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 19:06:54 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and was not listed on the injury report for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson struggled in Week 2 while playing through a high-ankle sprain, and there is no way to tell how close to 100 percent he is for Week 3. He is still worth starting in standard formats against the 49ers unless you have a high-end backup, but he is a risky play in DFS formats.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson a full go

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:45:27 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks are struggling to find a rhythm on offense, and Wilson's ankle sprain probably isn't helping matters. Unless you have a high-end backup, continue to start him in standard leagues, but he should be avoided in DFS formats.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson fully practices

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 17:46:49 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson was able to play last week despite the injury but was not able to do much in terms of running during the game. Wilson should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues, but owners may want to lower their expectations because of the injury.
