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.

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.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was 18-for-29 with 235 yards and three touchdown passes in the team's Week 7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Oct. 17, and he finished the game with a 122.1 passer rating. "I don't know what we would do without him," head coach Pete Carroll said. "We would be a much different team. I don't know how you can measure it at this point. He has become such a special aspect of our team. He's instrumental to everything we do." It wasn't all good, though, as he fumbled three times and lost two of them and was sacked three times.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 15 of his 31 pass attempts for 210 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He also rushed 13 times for a team-high tying 102 yards. It was his first career 100-yard rushing game.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch had 17 carries while tying QB Russell Wilson for the team-high with 102 yards in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts. It was Lynch's first 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for four touchdowns in the team's Week 3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and QB Tarvaris Jackson also threw for a touchdown and ran one in. Both quarterbacks combined for 331 yards and five touchdown passes and completed 21 of 29 throws. TE Zach Miller and WR Sidney Rice had two touchdowns each.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson's big game doesn't come as a huge surprise against the hapless Jaguars. Don't expect production this large for much of the rest of the season, though.

The Philadelphia Eagles were close to acquiring San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick for a second-round draft choice a few weeks prior to the 2012 NFL draft but decided not to make the trade because they thought they could draft Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. After the Seahawks selected Wilson in the draft, the Eagles decided to draft QB Nick Foles.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is determined to improve upon his rookie season, and his work ethic, in the classroom and studying at home, continues to impress his teammates. "He knows this is his team," FS Earl Thomas said. "He's taken control back there. Even if you've played 10 years, eight years, he'll still get on you to tell you this is where you need to be to make this offense work. And you have to respect a guy like that."
Fantasy Tip: Wilson vaulted into QB1 status as the course of the season went on last year. Will he take it to another level or suffer a sophomore jinx? That remains to be seen. The potential loss of WR Percy Harvin (hip) for an extended period doesn't help, but then again he wasn't on the roster last season during Wilson's meteoric rise. Wilson will be drafted as a Top 10 fantasy quarterback.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson ranked fourth among quarterbacks in rushing attempts last season, but he's more of a scrambler than pure runner, according to ESPN.com writer Mike Sando. He led the NFL in time spent in the pocket per pass play (3.12 seconds) and average time before passing (4.18 seconds). Wilson received more opportunities to run late in the season, when Seattle incorporated read-option plays on offense. Sando doesn't recall Wilson taking an especially hard hit other than one against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14. In a conversation on ESPN Radio show "Mike & Mike," Wilson commented on how he views his responsibilities when on the move:
"To be honest with you, I don't really like running. I'd rather throw the ball to guys and let the true playmakers make the plays. ..."
Fantasy Tip: Wilson may put extra stress on his offensive line, but he's certainly a dynamic passer who has succeeded in the face of plenty of adversity. It'll be interesting to see if he can continue to produce touchdowns at such a prolific rate without accumulating more yards, either in the air or on the ground, in 2013.

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Bills) is expected to visit the Seattle Seahawks in the next day or two to possibly sign a contract with the team, two sources said Tuesday, June 11. Jackson was the team's starting quarterback in 2011, but lost his job last summer to QB Russell Wilson, and was traded to the Buffalo Bills. QB Brady Quinn is the current backup to Wilson.
