    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Four scores to kick things off

    Russell Wilson completed 18 of 23 pass attempts for 254 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts.Wilson didn't do much on the ground (five carries for nine yards), but he didn't need to after dissecting the Colts' secondary from the pocket. The 32-year-old replicated his four-score performance from Week 1 of the 2020 season, and his fantasy managers are hoping the superstar quarterback can also replicate the 10 touchdowns he rattled off over the following two weeks as well. Indianapolis is no slouch on defense, so Wilson's matchup against a young Tennessee Titans defense next Sunday shouldn't worry his managers.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Doesn't play Saturday

    Russell Wilson didn't play in the Seattle Seahawks' final preseason game Saturday against the Chargers.Wilson was expected to play about a quarter, but head coach Pete Carroll opted to keep the team's most valuable player on the sidelines for the final exhibition matchup. Even without Wilson on the field, we saw a glimpse of new OC Shane Waldron's system, according to Gregg Bell of The News Tribune. Waldron frequently utilized two tight-end sets, and he even got fullback Nick Bellore involved. Of course, we shouldn't draw too many conclusions from a preseason game. After all, no scheme is going to leave DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett (groin) off the field for more than a couple of snaps per game. With the defense more likely to take a step back than improve, Wilson should end up throwing plenty this season, regardless of the initial game plan.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Should play a little Saturday

    Russell Wilson could play about a quarter in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.RB Chris Carson and a few others likely will be held out, but Wilson is expected to get a little playing time to tune up for his Week 1 road matchup with the Colts. The Seattle Seahawks brought back the same nucleus of offensive players, albeit with a few tweaks, hoping new OC Shane Waldron can help Wilson bounce back from a disappointing second half of 2020.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Likely sitting against Broncos

    Russell Wilson is not likely to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.GM John Schneider appeared on the pregame radio show and spoke of the great opportunity that backup quarterbacks Alex McGough and Sean Mannion would have in Saturday's contest. That presumably means Wilson will remain sidelined, as he also didn't appear in the team's first preseason contest against the Raiders.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Gets more pass catchers

    The Seattle Seahawks added wide receiver D'Wayne Eskridge in the draft and tight end Gerald Everett via free agency to help bolster Russell 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.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Willing to waive no-trade clause

    Russell Wilson told the Seattle 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.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Struggles in loss to Rams

    Russell 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 Seattle 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.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Clutch in crunch time

    Russell 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.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Accounts for two TDs vs. Rams

    Russell 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.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws for just 121 yards

    Russell Wilson completed 18 of 27 passes for 121 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington. He also carried six times for 52 yards.With a banged-up Seattle offensive line up against a fierce Washington pass rush, Wilson struggled to get much going through the air. He finished with just 4.5 yards per passing attempt -- his lowest mark of the year. However, the veteran quarterback was quite effective on the ground, ripping off a 38-yard run in the second quarter. That season-long scramble set up Seattle's first touchdown of the day, a 10-yard toss to tight end Jacob Hollister. The Seattle Seahawks let off the gas in the second half, however, as they failed to score on their final four offensive drives. Nevertheless, they accomplished enough to win their 10th game of the year and clinch a third straight playoff appearance. Up next is a crucial division tilt against the Rams in Week 16.
