Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he will be ready to play this season whether he's making $25 million or $1.5 million. Wilson has expressed his desire to stay in Seattle and added that, when the time comes, he will let his play do the talking.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson and a possible new contract have garnered a lot of attention this offseason. Wilson has been calm and collected about the situation, at least on the outside, and is primed to have another standout season, especially with new weapons like Jimmy Graham. Wilson should be drafted as a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Lockett is expected to see plenty of time as a kickoff and punt returner, and his primary position is expected to be in the slot where he will make an impact on offense. He is a nice sleeper as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into draft day.

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin said Monday, June 29, that he wants to contribute more on special teams. "I want to help out more so on special teams in terms of on kickoff, punt return blocking, Baldwin said.
Fantasy Tip: That's all well and good, but fantasy owners won't like that. There is more chance for injury while he is not racking up statistics to help teams. It might be best to let Baldwin be someone else's potential problem.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said the goal is to remain in Seattle for "a really, really long time" when asked about his contract situation at the Russell Wilson Passing Academy Saturday, June 27.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson has sent mixed messages this offseason, hinting that he would be willing to leave Seattle and now saying he hopes to stay. Either way, he should be a low-end QB1 in 2015 after Jimmy Graham was added to the offense in the offseason.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson wants a considerable portion of his next contract to be guaranteed. This is considered the biggest stumbling block in Wilson's extension talks, as the league's funding rule requires all money of any future payments to be paid into escrow upon signing.
Fantasy Tip: Seahawks owner Paul Allen certainly has the financial means to make this work, so it shouldn't be too big of a concern. Either way, Wilson seems dead set on getting what he wants during contract talks, and the NFLPA may need to step in at some point.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is looking to become the highest-paid player in the league with his next contract, according to sources. Wilson's agent understands that any contract extension Wilson receives will be surpassed by another player in the future.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson will be entering the final year of his contract, so the team has time to reach a long-term agreement. He is coming off a solid season with 3,475 passing yards and 20 touchdowns and now has Jimmy Graham to throw to this season. Owners should consider Wilson as a low-end No. 1 quarterback with a chance to improve his value.

Fantasy Tip: Kearse had a 38-537-1 season last year, which won't open many eyes. In his fourth season with consistent playing time, he could be worth a WR5 flyer.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who is believed to be seeking a five-year deal worth more than $110 million, sounded as if he's ready to move on from the Seahawks if his contract situation isn't resolved. He's in the fourth and final year of his rookie contract that will pay him $2.99 million if he doesn't agree to a new deal. Seattle could place the franchise tag on Wilson next year, which would cost them more than $23 million for 2016.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson is likely just posturing as he and the team continue contract negotiations on a long-term extension. We fully expect Wilson to remain in Seattle long term. He'll enter the QB1 discussion in 2015 with Marshawn Lynch coming back and Jimmy Graham in the fold as an elite tight end option, especially near in the red zone.

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls has been a bright spot this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. "I love his running style… He showed very good feet, he caught the ball well, he's going to be a very willing blocker," Carroll said.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson won't let the prospect of a long-term deal distract him this season. Wilson said he hopes a deal gets done before training camp, but said if talks stretch into the season that he wouldn't let that affect what he does on the field.
Fantasy Tip: Not a lot of progress has been made with Wilson's deal. Deal or no deal, Wilson seems focused on the task at hand -- a third consecutive Super Bowl appearance. He's one of the most versatile passers, and fantasy quarterbacks, in the league and should be drafted in the top five at his position.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson continues to wait for a long-term extension as he plays out the contract from his rookie season. If anything, one would think Wilson would want to perform even better this season to prove that he deserves the extension he will indubitably receive. Draft Wilson as a top-five fantasy quarterback this year.
