Player Outlook

Russell Wilson will get drafted as a top-12 Fantasy quarterback, but the demand for him will be tepid. That's because he was a massive letdown to end 2020, sinking from 34.4 Fantasy points per game through the first half of the season to 18.6 in the second half. That happened because Wilson threw about five fewer attempts per game for more than two yards fewer per throw, and he slipped from 3.5 touchdowns per game (seriously!) to 1.5. DK Metcalf's disappearing act certainly played a role. Now there's uncertainty over what the Seahawks offense will look like, especially with ex-Rams pass-game coordinator Shane Waldron coming in to call plays and Pete Carroll's run-first mindset overseeing everything. But do not lose sight of the fact that Wilson has finished in the top six among quarterbacks in Fantasy points per game in four of his past six years, or that he's got a supremely talented receiving corps and a pretty good offensive line, too. Last year's ending left Fantasy managers frustrated, but there are reasons for some optimism. If someone in your draft reaches for Wilson, let them. But if Wilson slides into Round 6 or 7, after the likes of Dak Prescott, then consider him a darn good value.

Player News
  • The Seahawks added wide receiver D'Wayne Eskridge in the draft and tight end Gerald Everett via free agency to help bolster Wilson's pass-catching options, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Wilson has passed the disgruntled quarterback baton to Aaron Rodgers, as coach Pete Carroll confirmed last week that the Seahawks are on good terms with Wilson and won't trade the quarterback. The Seahawks have made solid upgrades on offense this offseason all the same, as they traded for right guard Gabe Jackson to help bolster the offensive line, then signed Everett to a one-year, $6 million deal before selecting Eskridge in the second round of the draft. Even with the plethora of weapons at Wilson's disposal, it remains to be seen how he works with his new offensive coordinator, Shane Waldron, who previously worked as the Rams' passing game coordinator.

  • Wilson told the Seahawks he wants to stay in Seattle, but he also said he'd be willing to play for the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears if a trade were considered, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Wilson has surpassed Deshaun Watson and Carson Wentz as king of the February rumor mill, with multiple reports suggesting the 32-year-old QB is contemplating an NFL future after Seattle. According to The Athletic, Wilson is frustrated with coach Pete Carroll's emphasis on the running game and wishes the Seahawks had made their pass-blocking more of a priority. He may not be ready to request a trade, but there's no doubt he's making a statement in going public (albeit indirectly) with his willingness to waive his no-trade clause for specific teams. While the Seahawks presumably will try first and foremost to repair the relationship, it does seem the once-unthinkable -- a Russell Wilson trade -- is now on the table as an option. Granted, the rift could be forgotten in a matter of months if Wilson and Co. take flight under new OC Shane Waldron.

  • Wilson completed 11 of 27 passes for 174 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams. He also ran four times for 50 yards. The Seahawks showed increased dysfunction toward the end of the season and specifically against the Rams. This was another prime example, and it was perhaps Wilson's worst game of the season. The 32-year-old quarterback threw a costly pick-six to Darious Williams in the second quarter, completed just 41 percent of his passes, and was sacked five times. Garbage time provided a slight boost to an otherwise putrid stat line, as he added 49 passing yards and a score in addition to 28 rushing yards on the second to last drive. Wilson appeared to be an MVP frontrunner to start the season, but he started slipping in the second half of the year and ultimately fell out of the race. Nevertheless, Wilson set career highs in touchdowns (40) and completion percentage (68.8) during the regular season, and his 4,212 passing yards were just eight yards short of a personal best. Both DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will be returning next year as well, so the Seahawks' passing game is equipped to return to the early season pace.

  • Wilson completed 20 of 36 pass attempts for 181 yards and two touchdowns, adding 29 yards on five rushing attempts in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers. Wilson was held in check for the first three quarters of action by a varied defense called by 49ers' defensive coordinator (and popular head coach candidate) Robert Saleh, but "Mr. Unlimited" was finally able to break through with 20 points in the fourth quarter to lead his team to victory. The 31-year-old fell seven yards shy of the career-high 4,219 passing yards he threw back in 2016. Unlike that season, Wilson put himself firmly in the MVP conversation with a new high water mark of 40 passing touchdowns (to 13 interceptions) to go along with 513 rushing yards and two more scores. Wilson continues to be the true definition of a dual-threat quarterback with his incredible accuracy at all three levels, plus arm strength and the ability to use his legs as a weapon. He will begin the 2021 fantasy season as an elite option with a high floor and high ceiling, but first, he will have to take on the Rams in the first round of the playoffs Sunday.

  • Wilson completed 20 of 32 pass attempts for 225 yards and a touchdown while adding nine yards and a touchdown on three carries during Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams. Wilson was hurried early and often by one of the NFL's top defensive units as he took five sacks and struggled to connect with his pass catchers at times. He managed to avoid turnovers, however, and contributed his second rushing touchdown of the season before throwing a TD pass to Jacob Hollister to put the game away. After a stellar start to the campaign, Wilson has been held under 250 yards in six of his last seven games and has thrown multiple touchdown passes just twice in that stretch. With the NFC West crown in hand, he will set his sights on playoff positioning in next Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.
