Player Outlook
After 10 years in Seattle, Wilson was traded to the Broncos in the offseason. The move brings uncertainty to what has been a steady career for Wilson. He'll have a new head coach for the first time in his career and a whole new set of pass catchers. The upside comes from the possibility that Nathanial Hackett may let Russ cook, as Seattle fans have been wanting for years. It's also possible that Denver's set of weapons is the deepest Wilson has ever played with. But there's no DK Metcalf on this roster and there's no one with the track record of Tyler Lockett. Also, Hackett didn't exactly call a pass-heavy scheme in Green Bay. Wilson is definitely still a top-10 quarterback and has as much upside as he ever has, maybe more, but he shouldn't be drafted before Round 7 due to the uncertainty and the depth of the position.

  • Broncos' Russell Wilson: Continues to impress

    Wilson continues to prove himself as a leader and a clear upgrade at the quarterback position, having his best practice of training camp Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. In an end-of-game scenario in practice Thursday, Wilson reminded the Broncos why they made the blockbuster move to acquire the veteran quarterback this offseason. After multiple touchdown drives throughout the practice, Wilson was the one who decided the final plays in crunch time to lead the offense to a win. When discussing play calling in those types of situations, coach Nathaniel Hackett said, "I'm always kind of in his ear, but it's his choice, whatever he's feeling." It's not surprising that the team has placed their trust in the veteran signal-caller, and he will certainly provide a much-needed boost to Denver's aerial attack. Despite losing Tim Patrick to a season-ending ACL tear, the Broncos still have an abundance of talented wide receivers, including Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler. Additionally, tight ends Albert Okwuegbunam and Greg Dulcich are impressing in camp, providing Wilson with dynamic pass-catching options. The 33-year-old also has an effective run game to lean on when needed in the duo of Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon. Wilson should lead a more balanced offense in 2022, and Denver's pass-catching group should take a major step forward under his leadership.

  • Broncos' Russell Wilson: Trade to Denver official

    The Broncos acquired Wilson from the Seahawks on Wednesday, after the trade the two teams agreed upon last week became official. In one of the landmark transactions of the offseason, Denver finally landed its first big-name quarterback since Peyton Manning retired after winning Super Bowl 50. Wilson will have a bevy of pass catchers at his disposal, moat notably wide receivers Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, tight end Albert Okwuegbunam and running back Javonte Williams. Wilson is coming off a subpar season by his standards, as he missed the first games (three) of his career due to injury and the playoffs for just the second time in 10 pro campaigns. Still, he completed 64.8 percent of his passes, averaged 7.8 yards per attempt and had 25 touchdowns versus six interceptions in 14 appearances.

  • Broncos' Russell Wilson: Trade moves toward completion

    In the wake of the agreed upon deal that is slated to send Wilson from Seattle to Denver, the quarterback waived his no-trade clause and passed his physical with the Broncos on Tuesday night, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. As a result, Tuesday's blockbuster trade in which the Broncos are in line to send QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant, DL Shelby Harris, two first-round draft picks, two second-round picks and a 2022 fifth-round selection to the Seahawks in exchange for Wilson and a 2022 fourth-rounder, continues to move toward becoming official once the league's new league year begins March 16. The looming arrival of Wilson, who turns 34 in November, provides his new franchise with the signal-caller stability it has been seeking and in the process figures to boost the fantasy prospects of the team's core skill players, a unit that includes WRs Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler, TE Albert Okwuegbunam and RB Javonte Williams.

  • Broncos' Russell Wilson: Trade to Denver in place

    A deal is in place to send Wilson and a fourth-round draft pick from the Seahawks to the Broncos in exchange for quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks and a fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per Schefter, the blockbuster hinges on Wilson waiving his no-trade clause, an expected outcome. Additionally, the looming transaction can't be finalized until the new league year begins March 16. Adding Wilson to the mix will provide the Broncos offense with a huge lift and significantly bolsters the nucleus of an attack that also includes running back Javonte Williams as well as wideouts Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Reportedly on the move

    The Seahawks have reportedly agreed to terms on a deal to send Wilson to the Broncos, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The report notes that such an outcome is pending a physical and Wilson's approval. Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the looming blockbuster transaction is expected to include multiple first-round draft picks as well as additional draft choices and players.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Wants to explore options

    Wilson hasn't demanded a trade from the Seahawks, but sources close to the quarterback indicate that he wants to explore other possible options to see if another team can put him in a better position to win another championship, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Though Wilson said in one of his final press conferences of the season that he hopes to remain with Seattle in 2022, the quarterback sounds as though he's open to the possibility of being dealt if he can go to a team that has a more promising outlook than the Seahawks, who are coming off a 7-10 season. With that in mind, Wilson looks like he'll be following a script similar to last offseason, when he never formally requested a trade yet still had his agent provide the Seahawks' front office with a list of four teams he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause for. Mike Garofolo of NFL Network reported last weekend that at this stage, the Seahawks have no plans to trade Wilson, who has two years remaining on his contract.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Still wanted by Seattle

    Coach Pete Carroll said Monday he expects Wilson to remain the Seahawks' starting quarterback in the 2022 campaign, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Carroll responded, "[Wilson's] our quarterback," when asked about the standout veteran's future in Seattle. Of course, the Seahawks will have ample time to mull over any personnel decisions during the upcoming offseason, and there's plenty of precedence that says coach's comments in early January shouldn't exactly be considered a guarantee. A serious finger injury caused Wilson to miss three contests during the 2021 campaign, and upon returning he logged a seven-game slump with only an 8:4 TD:INT. However, Wilson looked more like himself during the final two games of the season, when he posted eight total touchdowns and just one interception.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Produced four touchdowns

    Wilson completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 238 yards, three touchdowns and one interception while running for five yards and one touchdown against Arizona on Sunday. It was a classic Russell Wilson box score: scoring often, including as a dual threat, while dealing with low-usage volume. To produce four touchdowns on 30 snaps isn't a common feat for most players, but with Wilson it's an old story by now. It's not clear whether that story will continue in Seattle, nor whether Seattle will keep the same coaching staff if Wilson does return. The veteran quarterback's situation is one to monitor in the offseason.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws four touchdowns

    Wilson completed 20 of 29 pass attempts for 236 yards and four touchdowns while running for 24 yards on six carries against Detroit on Sunday. The Detroit defense is one of the weakest in the league, and this game proved to be a good setting for Wilson to reestablish some rapport with DK Metcalf (six catches for 63 yards and three touchdowns on nine targets). Wilson will need Metcalf to keep producing alongside Tyler Lockett (three catches for 24 yards and one touchdown on three targets Sunday) if the Seahawks offense is to maintain its momentum against a tough Arizona defense in Week 18.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Tosses two TDs in loss

    Wilson completed 16 of 27 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears. He added 13 yards on two carries. On a snowy day in Seattle, Wilson mostly took a back seat to Rashaad Penny, but he was able to cap a couple drives with TD passes to DK Metcalf and Gerald Everett, the latter of which gave the Seahawks a 24-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter. However, the defense couldn't make it hold up. Wilson has thrown multiple touchdowns in four of the last five games, but with Seattle now officially eliminated from postseason contention, he has little to play for but personal milestones heading into a Week 17 clash with the Lions.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Poor showing in defeat

    Wilson completed 17 of 31 pass attempts for 156 yards, no touchdowns and one interception while failing to record a rushing attempt in Tuesday's 20-10 loss to the Rams. Wilson had been looking like his pre-injury self over the last few weeks -- averages of 246 passing yards and two touchdowns over his last three games -- after rushing back too quickly from a broken finger in Week 10. The 32-year-old reverted to his poor passing form against a tough Rams defense, as evidenced by his third sub-60 percent completion rate game this season (zero total touchdowns in those contests). Fantasy managers should probably throw this performance out the window when evaluating Wilson for Week 16, as the tough matchup and lack of playmaker Tyler Lockett (illness) were factors in this dud. A bounce-back showing against the Bears on Sunday would not be surprising.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Seahawks-Rams moved to Tuesday

    Wilson and the Seahawks will no longer play the Rams on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Rams organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, Los Angeles will be able to restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. After Tuesday's game, the Seahawks will face a quick turnaround for Week 16 with a Sunday matchup versus the Bears on Dec. 26.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Tosses two scores in win

    Wilson completed 17 of 28 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans. He also ran twice for eight yards. Wilson put together his best game since returning from finger surgery in Week 10, tossing a 55-yard touchdown to Tyler Lockett and a one-yard score to Gerald Everett. We haven't seen many deep shots from Wilson since his injury, so his connection with Lockett demonstrated that the 33-year-old quarterback is as close to 100 percent as he can get. Nevertheless, he'll have a tough matchup against the Rams -- which are fourth in the league with 32 sacks entering their Week 14 Monday night matchup against the Cardinals -- in Week 15.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Sharp in Sunday's win

    Wilson completed 30 of 37 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers. For the first time in four games since returning from finger surgery, Wilson looked more like himself, and his line would have been even better had Gerald Everett not bobbled a pass at the goal line, turning a sure TD into an INT on Seattle's first drive of the second half. The Seahawks are all but out of the NFC playoff picture at 4-8, but Wilson will likely go down slinging, beginning with a Week 14 tilt against the Texans.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Comeback falls short

    Wilson completed 20 of 31 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 17-15 loss to Washington. He also rushed twice for 16 yards. Wilson and Seattle's offense once again struggled to move the ball and produce points. In fact, he led the team in rushing and 94 of his passing yards came on two plays to Tyler Lockett. Besides that, his two leaders in receptions, Gerald Everett and DeeJay Dallas, totaled 64 yards on their 10 combined grabs. Meanwhile, star wideout DK Metcalf's lone, 13-yard catch didn't come until there was just over a minute left. Although Wilson salvaged some value with a touchdown to Everett early and Freddie Swain late, his two-point conversion attempt with 15 seconds remaining was intercepted, capping a frustrating showing from the signal-caller.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Struggles continue

    Wilson completed 14 of 26 pass attempts for 207 yards against Arizona on Sunday. Wilson was arguably better than he was against Green Bay in Week 10, but other than a few big throws to Tyler Lockett there just wasn't anything good going on for the Seattle passing game Sunday. The Arizona defense may well go down as one of the best in the NFL this year, so Wilson has that excuse at least, but it still seems like he's not fully himself as he works his way back from his finger injury, which he returned from last week. His Week 12 matchup at Washington is a favorable one, so Seattle will hope the finger cooperates and allows Wilson to really get back on track.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Major struggles in return

    Wilson (finger) completed 20 of 40 pass attempts for 161 yards and two interceptions and scrambled five times for 32 yards Sunday in the Seahawks' 17-0 loss to the Packers. Back after a three-game absence, Wilson was almost certainly limited by the surgically repaired middle finger on his throwing hand, as his return occurred more quickly than the initial injury prognosis considered possible. When fully healthy, Wilson is certainly capable of delivering a better performance, especially against a Green Bay secondary without its best corner in Jaire Alexander (shoulder). Wilson missed throws he usually doesn't, and almost every rep was ugly in some way or another. The Arizona defense is more dangerous than Green Bay's, so Wilson will hope to shake the rust before the Week 11 contest.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Activated from IR

    Wilson (finger) was activated from injured reserve Friday evening, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. The team didn't bother waiting until Saturday, with coach Pete Carroll having already named Wilson as the starter for Sunday's game in Green Bay. Rookie WR Dee Eskridge (concussion) also is coming off IR for the Week 10 game, while RB Chris Carson (IR/neck) has been ruled out again.

  • Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Confirmed as Sunday's starter

    Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Wilson (finger) will start Sunday's game against the Packers, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. It's not a surprise given Wilson was labeled a "full" practice participant earlier this week, but it's a good sign to hear confirmation from Carroll regardless. The veteran signal-caller still needs to be officially activated from injured reserve, but the team can make that roster move at any point ahead of Saturday afternoon's roster deadline (4:00 p.m. ET).
