Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had a total QBR of 45.3 with former WR Percy Harvin on the field this season, and a QBR of 71.0 with him on the field.
Fantasy Tip: While QBR is a homemade ESPN statistic, and not an official NFL stat, it shows that Wilson did not suffer much when Harvin was not on the field, and in fact he flourished. He remains a top-10 fantasy option at his position.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson set a Monday Night Football record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 122 Monday, Oct. 6. He also scored a touchdown rushing and threw for 201 yards and two scores.
Fantasy Tip: Although Seattle is often happy to play it conservatively and pound the ball with Marshawn Lynch, Wilson showed the type of damage he can do when he is given the reins of the offense. He may not be the steadiest player at the position from a fantasy standpoint, but he offers a lot of upside.
Tue, 03 Jun 2014 16:51:09 -0700
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is impressed with the speed of the team's receiving corps, especially thanks to the addition of WR Paul Richardson, who the team drafted this year. "Yeah, our receivers right now are as fast as it gets. You've got Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse is extremely fast too. Then you add Paul Richardson who you saw today went for that deep, deep ball that I threw to him. He's looking exceptional as well. So I think our receiver group is probably one of the faster in the league right now, based on who we have."
Fantasy Tip: Don't be fooled now that Seattle has more wideout depth in 2014; the Seahawks remain a run-first squad. Richardson will have to battle for playing time behind Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin, and he probably won't have a significant enough role to be worth a draft pick this fall.

The success of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has the Minnesota Vikings thinking a shorter quarterback may be an option for them. The Vikings have talked to Johnny Manziel, who is 5-foot-11, but other short options are out there like 6-foot QB Connor Shaw and 6-1 QB David Fales.
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.
Sat, 01 Feb 2014 20:39:33 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is 12 years, 250 days older than Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. That is the largest age difference between starting quarterbacks in Super Bowl history.

Thu, 02 Jan 2014 18:52:21 -0800
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he hopes WR Percy Harvin (hip) will be able to play during the playoffs but does not want Harvin to return until he is completely recovered from his hip injury.
Fri, 27 Dec 2013 20:38:03 -0800

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 23:49:45 -0800
With 7,673 passing yards in 30 regular-season starts, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck needs 248 for the most by a quarterback in his first two seasons. Carolina's Cam Newton had 7,920 in 2011-12 and the Colts' Peyton Manning had 7,874 in 1998-99. Also, Luck has 20 wins, tied for fourth-most by a QB in his first two seasons. Seattle's Russell Wilson has 23 with two games to play while Ben Roethlisberger had 22 in 2004-05 and Dan Marino 21 in 1983-84.
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.
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.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 09:59:35 -0700
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.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 18:10:51 -0700
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.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 18:10:15 -0700
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.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 09:41:21 -0700
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.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 09:43:32 -0700
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.
Sun, 28 Jul 2013 19:57:24 -0700
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.
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 10:43:52 -0700
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.
Tue, 11 Jun 2013 20:15:21 -0700
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.
Fri, 07 Jun 2013 18:51:24 -0700
Seattle Seahawks QB Brady Quinn appeared to have a solid performance during organized team activities (OTAs), and there seems no real doubt that he is the primary backup to starting QB Russell Wilson.
Tue, 21 May 2013 08:05:05 -0700
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said QB Russell Wilson is a million miles ahead of where he was last year. "He threw a couple of balls today, things that we talked about over the offseason that he'd like to take a shot at, and he did it today just to see what would happen with full awareness of why he was doing it," Carroll said.
Thu, 04 Apr 2013 17:45:49 -0700
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he believes QB Russell Wilson could have a breakout season in 2013. "I think he's going to really do well this year. He's going to bust out and will benefit tremendously from his first year. It may be hard to imagine he's going to get any better, but I think he's going to get a lot better, being he was a first year starter, first time in the League," Carroll said.
Mon, 04 Feb 2013 10:46:20 -0800
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he is not worried about opponents figuring out the team's read-option offense because the team only runs 15 to 20 percent of their plays out of the formation. Wilson said he believes the formation is effective because the team likes to throw out of the formation. "Yeah, it's tough to stop," Wilson said. "I think the thing with us, and why it works so efficient for us, is we love throwing the ball out of the formation. We do a lot of things, a lot of play action, a lot of different looks."
Wed, 23 Jan 2013 05:08:00 -0800

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 08:43:26 -0800
An unnamed representative of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reportedly called the team this week "insisting that something be done" to adjust Wilson's slotted third-round rookie contract. However, the new collective bargaining agreement prevents rookie contracts from being renegotiated until three of the mandatory four years have been completed. Theoretically, the Seahawks could simply cut Wilson and sign him to a new contract, if he clears waivers; however, he would not clear waivers.
Thu, 17 Jan 2013 07:59:58 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly may have changed his mind about coaching at the pro level after watching Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick perform in the divisional round playoffs last weekend, according to former NFL head coach Tony Dungy. "Could it be that Chip Kelly watched the playoffs and watched Russell Wilson run a little bit of his read option in the spread offense, and watched Colin Kaepernick run a little bit more of it?" Dungy said. Dungy added he believes Kelly watched the playoffs thinking, "My offense is way farther advanced than that, and maybe if this is going through the NFL, it might not be so tough."
Tue, 15 Jan 2013 11:20:01 -0800
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said it would be nice to have another quarterback on the roster that has the similar skillset to that of QB Russell Wilson. "We've talked a lot about that," Carroll said. "It would be nice to have another guy that might be able to be a factor that way. There's some really good kids out there. We'll see." It remains to be seen if Seattle is willing to trade QB Matt Flynn.

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 04:28:22 -0800
Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman believes QB Russell Wilson is actually the best rookie quarterback of this season's class; he just isn't as hyped by the media like Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III are. "They're going to hype who they're going to hype, and you're in the Seattle market, and it doesn't matter what you do," Sherman said. "He's beat the Bears, the Packers, the Patriots. You show me another quarterback with his resume, and I'll show you a great quarterback. But he doesn't get the credit because they don't want to give him the credit. They don't want to make him a big name. They make the guys a big name who they want to make a big name. He's a great quarterback, and he's probably a little better than those guys."
Sun, 02 Dec 2012 17:29:15 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has thrown 115 consecutive passes without being intercepted, and he has amassed decent statistics this season, although he and the team are usually much more effective at home. He is a solid QB2 in most fantasy leagues.
