Seahawks | Carolina leery of Russell Wilson

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 18:23:16 -0800

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 13, and DE Charles Johnson said Wilson is Seattle's best running back and the toughest challenge for Carolina's defense.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson ran for a season-high 80 yards last weekend, and he should be deployed as a QB1 in Week 13 against a Carolina defense that has taken a big step back this year.

He faces a tough matchup in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he is a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee, pectoral) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is expected to start and play through the injuries, as he has been. The pectoral strain is of more concern, and his attempts could be limited Monday night against Buffalo. He's a fringe starter, at best.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson disappoints in loss

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 17:55:53 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 22 of his 34 pass attempts for 253 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also ran three times for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The stat line was very disappointing considering the Saints are among the worst passing defenses in the league. Wilson and the Seahawks will have an extra day to prepare for the Buffalo Bills in Week 9 next Monday night. Despite the poor outing, Wilson remains a decent low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson to wear knee brace

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 06:20:19 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee) will wear a custom knee brace during Week 4's contest against the New York Jets. He suffered an MCL sprain versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3 but was a full participant in all three practices held leading up to the Jets game.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson should be viewed as a risky No. 1 quarterback option this week due to the mobility issue. Daily fantasy players would best be served avoiding him Sunday, while seasonal owners with quality backup options should consider benching Wilson.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 to run less in Week 2

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 11:05:20 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) is expected to work from the pocket much more than usual in Week 2 versus the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia.

Fantasy Tip: Utilizing Wilson's athletic ability is a huge part of the Seahawks' offense, but it is not as if he can't operate in the pocket. Given his ankle injury, it will likely be the way he'll have to play in Week 2. Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and Jermaine Kearse should all see plenty of work this week, but Wilson probably needs to be treated as a low-end QB1 versus the Rams since his mobility figures to be compromised.

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 15:47:01 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) said he'll be "ready to roll" against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Los Angeles defense didn't really show up last week, but there's still plenty of talent on that side of the football. Wilson can succeed against anyone and is still in QB1 territory, but expectations should be tempered. His ankle may not be 100 percent and the Rams will want to take out their anger on the subpar offensive line Seattle has.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson should play

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 11:24:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) should be able to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said Wilson did have some swelling in his sprained ankle but that he would make it through. There was no structural damage revealed in Wilson's X-rays.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson struggled in Week 1 and he was clearly affected by the ankle injury. Don't be surprised if Wilson is limited in practice throughout the week. His status should be monitored, but for now he's still a QB1 consideration.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson's ankle injury not serious

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 10:13:09 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in a week one win over the Miami Dolphins, but head coach Pete Carroll said it was "nothing very serious".

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has yet to miss the start in his five NFL seasons, so it seems unlikely this ailment will keep him from suiting up in Week 2 after NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning his availability against the Los Angeles Rams was in question. Given how well the Rams usually play the Seahawks and the fact could be less than 100 percent, consider Wilson a low-end QB1 in this matchup.
