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.

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.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson will play in Week 2

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.
