Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Wins second straight OT contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 24 of 34 passes for 232 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday's 27-24 overtime win over the 49ers.

Wilson was uncharacteristically inefficient in the first half, as he was sacked on third down twice and completed seven of 11 passes for 73 yards, although he would have added a touchdown if rookie DK Metcalf hadn't had the ball stripped at the goal line right before halftime. The QB came out firing in the third quarter, converting his next seven passing attempts for 46 yards and a touchdown to Jacob Hollister. However, with a 21-10 lead in hand, the six-time Pro Bowler coughed up a fumble that DeForest Buckner returned for six to bring the 49ers back into the game. Wilson came up clutch at the end of OT, as he ripped off an 18-yard run and completed three passes for 15 yards to set up Jason Myers' game-winning field goal. The Seahawks have closed the gap in the NFC West and are 8-2 heading into their bye week.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Spectacular in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 29 of 43 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday's 40-34 overtime win against the Buccaneers. He also rushed once for 21 yards.

The Buccaneers scored on their opening drive, so Wilson responded on his first offensive possession by completing his first five throws for 73 yards and a touchdown to Tyler Lockett, who ended up being his favorite target all afternoon. That was just the start of Wilson's career day, as he threw an additional touchdown to Lockett, one to D.K. Metcalf and two to Jacob Hollister, including the game-winner. This is the signature game an MVP candidate like Wilson needs, as he now has 22 touchdowns and just one interception through nine games. Wilson will look to take down the division-leading 49ers in Week 10.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Bounces back to defeat Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 14 of 20 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Falcons.

Wilson and the Seahawks got pushed around by the Ravens in Week 7, but they rebounded well. Their offense was buzzing in the first half, as it scored on all but one drive to take a 24-0 lead into halftime. Wilson was responsible for two of those touchdowns, as he found D.K. Metcalf in the end zone twice for scores of four and two yards. Things died down for the Seahawks in the second half, but they afforded themselves enough of a cushion to hold on. Wilson got back on track with elite efficiency, posting a 70.0 completion percentage and 9.1 YPA. He'll look to keep it up against the Buccaneers' weak secondary in Week 9.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws first pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 20 of 41 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens. He also rushed three times for 27 yards.

This was an uncharacteristically inefficient outing for Wilson. Over the first six games, Wilson didn't finish below a 64 percent completion rate or 8.1 YPA, but he rang up at 49 percent and 5.9 YPA in this outing. Wilson also threw his first interception of the season in the second quarter, and Marcus Peters ran it back 67 yards for a touchdown. The Seahawks fell to 5-2 on the season, but Wilson is still firmly entrenched in the MVP conversation. He'll has an appealing bounce-back opportunity in Week 8 against the pitiful Falcons secondary.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Leads team past Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 23 of 33 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns. He also ran nine times for 31 yards and a score.

Wilson looked excellent again as he extended plays to notch his 14th passing touchdown and third rushing touchdown in six games. His game was highlighted by a nine-play, 79-yard game-winning drive in the fourth quarter where Wilson threw for 55 yards and scrambled for eight yards before Chris Carson punched in a one-yard score. Wilson's efficiency continues to be superb, as he has at least 8.1 YPA in every contest, and Sunday's 69.7 completion percentage was his second-lowest of the season.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Magnificent effort to beat Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 17 of 23 passes for 268 yards and four touchdowns in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams. He also ran eight times for 32 yards.

After the Seahawks' first two drives, it looked like it would be a long night for Wilson, as he was constantly on the run from a stout Rams' defensive front. However, he made adjustments, and on the third drive he rolled out to his left, patiently waited for his moment and lofted a pass where only Tyler Lockett could catch it for the game's first touchdown. Wilson ended up throwing three more scores, including a game-winner to Chris Carson with 2:28 remaining in regulation. He finished the contest with a season-high 11.7 yards per attempt, and this was the fourth time in five games he completed over 70 percent of his passes. Wilson will look to continue his efficiency in Week 6 versus the Browns.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws for 240 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 22 of 28 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals. He also ran twice for seven yards.

Wilson is approaching a Drew Brees level of efficiency a quarter of the way through the season, as he's completed 72.9 percent of his passes for eight touchdowns, zero interceptions and 8.6 YPA through four games. He clearly doesn't need a ton of attempts to be a viable fantasy quarterback, which came in handy as the Seahawks shifted to a run-heavy scheme in this contest by affording Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise 25 combined carries, although that was more game script than a pass-averse game plan. Wilson and the Seahawks have a short week before a tough Thursday night matchup against the Rams. Last year, Wilson threw three touchdowns in each game versus the Rams.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Piles up four total scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 32 of 50 passes for 406 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Saints. He also ran seven times for 51 yards and two scores.

It was a monster game for Wilson, who was on the run often but avoided a sack for the first time this season. Just as important, this game revealed that coach Pete Carroll was willing to abandon the run-heavy motto if the Seahawks trailed by enough, as Wilson's 50 pass attempts were the most of his career. It also helped that starting running back Chris Carson's fumble woes resurfaced. Nevertheless, Wilson took over this game and will have a good shot to do the same thing in Week 4 versus the Cardinals, who just allowed Kyle Allen to throw for 261 yards and four scores in his second career start.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Extremely efficient in close win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 29 of 35 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Steelers. He also ran six times for 22 yards.

The Seahawks unleashed Wilson after giving him just 20 passing attempts in Week 1, and he reminded us of his supreme efficiency with 8.6 YPA and an 80.5 completion percentage. Although he started slow, Wilson tossed a touchdown to TE Will Dissly late in the first half, and he came out in the second half hot with touchdown passes to Dissly and rookie WR DK Metcalf. Wilson's still a flaky fantasy play because coach Pete Carroll is comfortable running the ball until it's completely necessary to pass. Still, Wilson flashed his upside and should be called upon again to use his arm in a Week 3 matchup versus the Saints.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Does just enough to win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 14 of 20 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Bengals. He also rushed four times for eight yards.

It was a shaky start for Wilson and the Seahawks, as they totaled minus-1 yard through the first two drives. The rest of the game was still shaky, but he finished with a decent stat line by tossing touchdowns to Tyler Lockett and Chris Carson. Getting Carson involved in the passing game was a priority of Seattle's offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer this season, and Wilson made it happen by targeting him a team-high seven times. Wilson also found utility in highly-touted rookie DK Metcalf, throwing to him six times, totaling four completions for 89 yards. While Wilson's ceiling is still capped by a run-heavy offense, he proved efficient for fantasy purposes despite limited reps.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Sharp in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed six of nine pass attempts for 82 yards, adding nine yards on two carries in Sunday's preseason tilt against the Vikings.

Wilson received his first game action after sitting out the first week of the preseason. The 30-year-old looked to be in midseason form over the two drives he commanded, completing two third-down conversions in the face of Minnesota blitzes. Wilson showed good rapport with new top wideout Tyler Lockett (three catches for 27 yards), and a strong showing from rookie DK Metcalf -- after he recovers from knee surgery -- could help alleviate the loss of Doug Baldwin to retirement. Look for the Seahawks' signal caller to get more playing time in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Chargers.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Not playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson won't suit up for Thursday's preseason game against the Broncos, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Wilson doesn't need many preseason reps to be ready for the regular campaign, but the Seahawks will be well served by getting the quarterback some game action in the post-Doug Baldwin era. In particular, the offense is breaking in three rookie wide receivers [DK Metcalf (oblique), Gary Jennings and John Ursua] while having minimal work with tight end Will Dissly, who didn't play after Week 4 last season due to a patella tendon injury. No matter how the pecking order plays out among Seattle's pass catchers, Wilson will be looking to uphold his record-setting contract extension from earlier this offseason.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Lands record-setting extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson reached agreement Tuesday with the Seahawks on a four-year, $140 million contract extension, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Though Wilson set a deadline of midnight Monday for reaching a new extension, the two sides were willing to negotiate until the early hours of Tuesday and ultimately consummated a record-setting deal. Wilson's contract is worth an average of $35 million from 2020 through 2023, including a league-record $65 million signing bonus. The 30-year-old's deal also includes a no-trade clause, likely ensuring that he finishes out his prime years in Seattle.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Will attend offseason programs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson will attend the start of the Seahawks' offseason program Monday, whether he has a new deal in place or not, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Monday is Wilson's self-imposed deadline for a new contract as he enters the final season of his four-year, $87.6 million deal. He's looking for a huge payday, but a holdout apparently won't be part of of the plan. The 30-year-old quarterback will probably be willing to listen to offers even if the contract isn't finished by Monday.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Expects new contract soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson told the Seahawks he wants a new contract before April 15, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Entering the final season of a four-year, $87.6 million contract, Wilson hopes to sign an extension before the start of Seattle's offseason program. His current deal ranks 12th among quarterbacks in average annual value, while the new contract surely will put him within the top five, potentially even ahead of first-place Aaron Rodgers ($33.5 million). The Seahawks have plenty of cap space available beyond 2019, but they also have three prominent defensive players -- Bobby Wagner, Frank Clark and Jarran Reed -- entering contract years. Wilson said he's willing to play out 2019 without a new contract if he isn't pleased with the offers, though there's little doubt the Seahawks would then hit him with a franchise tag next offseason.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Hasn't started contract talks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson and the Seahawks haven't engaged in any discussions to extend his contract beyond 2019, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Heading into the final season of a four-year, $87.6 million extension, Wilson has a reasonable argument to break one or both of the contract records set by Matt Ryan ($94.5 million fully guaranteed) and Aaron Rodgers ($33.5 million per season) this past year. No longer buoyed by a superstar-laden defense, the 30-year-old quarterback nonetheless led Seattle to the playoffs in 2018, posting a 10-6 record in what might've been viewed as a rebuilding season. With their youth movement well under way, the Seahawks have enough cap space to give Wilson a massive contract and also add a bit more help around him. Discussions should begin soon enough, though the potential for a work stoppage in 2021 could make things a bit tricky.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Totals two scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 18 of 27 passes for 233 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys. He also rushed three times for 14 yards and a touchdown.

Wilson led the Seahawks into the red zone just once in the first half, and he took the lead with a four-yard touchdown run during the team's second trip late in the third quarter. Wilson's passing game was bottled up until it was too late, when he threw for 75 yards and a score with less than two minutes left in the game to bring the team within two points. The Seahawks never got the ball back, however, and were strapped with the loss. Despite the defeat, Wilson managed another strong season with a career-high 35 passing touchdowns and just seven interceptions. Coach Pete Carroll committed to the run this season so Wilson averaged under 27 pass attempts per game, leading to just 3,488 passing yards -- his lowest total since 2013. The 30-year-old is heading into the final year of his contract, and there's a chance the Seahawks franchise tag him for the 2020 season, which would cost the team $30.34 million, if they can't reach another multi-year deal.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Serviceable in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 12 of 21 pass attempts for 152 yards, with one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 27-24 win against Arizona.

After posting eight consecutive outings with multiple passing touchdowns between Weeks 5 and 13, Wilson has been somewhat inconsistent during the fantasy postseason. The 30-year-old put forth typically impressive performances in Weeks 14 and 15 by throwing for 508 combined passing yards and five touchdowns against the 49ers and Chiefs, but those two games were sandwiched between duds against Minnesota and Arizona in which he averaged 112 passing yards per game with one touchdown and two picks. Wilson has a challenging matchup forthcoming in the wild-card round, taking on a Cowboys defense that's allowing the second-fewest yards per attempt (6.4) on the season.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Beats Chiefs to clinch playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 18 of 29 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs. He also rushed eight times for 57 yards.

Wilson marched the Seahawks down the field on their opening drive, setting up a four-yard touchdown run by Chris Carson. He later took a four-point lead into halftime and came out firing in the second half, piling up points on four of five drives. His most impressive feat was the final offensive drive, when he threw deep passes to both Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin, leading to Chris Carson's game-sealing rushing score. The Seahawks' ability to find the paydirt while the Chiefs settled for field goals was the difference in this contest. Wilson now has a career-high 34 passing touchdowns and will head to the playoffs for the sixth time in his seven-year career.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Can't clinch playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 23 of 31 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's overtime loss to the 49ers.

A win here and the Seahawks would've locked up a playoff spot despite an 0-2 start to the season. Wilson tossed a touchdown to Doug Baldwin during the team's opening drive and another to him at the end of the first half. The passing game slowed down in the second half as Wilson completed 11 of 15 for just 87 yards (5.8 YPA) while losing 20 yards on three sacks. Despite the struggles, the Seahawks had a chance for redemption in overtime but couldn't manage a first down, and the 49ers won with a field goal on the following drive. Wilson and the Seahawks will host Kansas City in Week 16 on Sunday Night Football.
