Wagner recorded 138 tackles, three sacks and eight pass breakups over 16 games during the 2020 season.
Wagner enjoyed his best performance of the season during the 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams, registering 16 stops and a sack. This was Wagner's fifth straight season with more than 130 tackles, and he was named first-team All-Pro in each of those campaigns. The 30-year-old linebacker has two years remaining on his contract and will carry a $17.5 million cap hit in 2021. Wagner will nevertheless be a focal point in Seattle next season, if not one of the only bright spots on the defense if the team doesn't bring in reinforcements.
Wagner made six tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.
Wagner put together yet another dominant season. The All-Pro linebacker posted 138 tackles, marking the fifth straight season where he exceeded 130 stops. Wagner added three sacks, eight pass breakups and a fumble recovery as well. A focal point of Seattle's defense, Wagner shows no signs of slowing down with a playoff game against the Rams on deck.
Wagner posted 13 tackles and a pass breakup in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.
Wagner compiled double-digit stops for the first time since Week 8. The veteran linebacker is now up to 126 tackles this year. He'll likely fall short of the 159 stops he posted last season, but Wagner is sixth in the league in the category, making him a top-tier IDP player for fantasy championships.

Wagner has played 100 percent of Seattle's defensive snaps this season, and it doesn't look like there are any more questions surrounding his status for Sunday's game against the Jets. The veteran linebacker already has 107 total tackles on the year, making this his ninth straight season above the century mark.

Wagner has been quite durable in his career; he has missed just one game since the start of the 2016 season. However, a soft-tissue injury always causes concern. It's encouraging that he was still able to practice in some capacity, but it's worth monitoring his status for the rest of the week leading up to Sunday's game against the Jets.
Wagner posted five tackles (three solo) and a pass breakup in Monday's 23-17 win over the Eagles.
This was Wagner's fourth straight game with fewer than 10 stops, and he recorded his lowest tackle count of the season in Week 12. Nevertheless, the All-Pro linebacker reached another milestone in this game, eclipsing the 100-tackle threshold, a feat he has achieved in each of his nine NFL seasons.
Wagner tallied 11 tackles (six solo), two sacks and three tackles for loss Sunday against San Francisco.
Wagner continues to rack up tackles this season, recording 36 tackles over his last three contests. He was also able to get pressure on the quarterback in Week 8, picking up his first two sacks of the 2020 campaign.
Wagner posted 14 tackles in Sunday's 27-26 win over the Vikings.
Kirk Cousins threw the ball 39 times, so Wagner was quite busy between bring down pass catchers and clogging up running lanes, leading to a season high in stops. The 30-year-old linebacker has a whopping 52 tackles through five games, making him a high-end IDP contributor once again.
Wagner (ribs) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The veteran linebacker landed on Thursday's injury report as a limited participant with the rib injury, but it won't impact his status for Week 5. Wagner has 38 total tackles and four passes defensed through four games this season.

It's unclear how Wagner suffered the injury, as he was coming off 12 tackles in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The team could be electing to rest their star linebacker, as it's too early to worry about Wagner's status for Week 5. If he is forced to sit out, however, it's unclear who would handle middle-linebacker duties with Cody Barton (quadriceps) also missing practice.
Wagner posted 12 tackles and a pass breakup in Sunday's 31-23 win over the Dolphins.
This is Wagner's first time leading the team in tackles this season, and it's no coincidence that he accomplished the feat with All-Pro safety Jamal Adams (groin) out of the lineup. Wagner averaged 8.6 tackles per game through the first three weeks, but he'll be counted on even more until Adams returns, which might not be until after the team's Week 6 bye.
Wagner recorded nine tackles (four solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Cowboys.
Wagner's off to another solid start in 2020, as he's notched 26 tackles through three games, putting him on track to reach 138 stops this season. The addition of All Pro safety Jamal Adams could cap Wagner's ceiling a bit, but Wagner is an All Pro himself and will get his regardless. Confidently deploy him as an IDP in Week 4 against the Dolphins.
Wagner recorded seven tackles and two pass breakups in Sunday's 38-25 win over the Falcons.
Wagner is accustomed to leading the Seahawks in tackles, but there could be a new sheriff in town, as All-Pro safety Jamal Adams made his presence known Sunday with 12 tackles and a sack. Still, Wagner logged seven games last year with single-digit tackles and still finished with 159 stops, but it's worth keeping an eye on it in IDP settings, as Adams could take over as the team's top tackler.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Wagner (knee) won't play in the Pro Bowl but shouldn't need surgery, Andy Patton of USA Today reports. "He's just going to rest up," Carroll said. "He doesn't have to do anything for it, but he needs to miss this game."
While surgery was on the table after Wagner's injury popped up in exit interviews, the All-Pro linebacker should be fine with simple rest and rehab. This was Wagner's sixth straight Pro Bowl bid after racking up a league-high 159 tackles this season. Wagner should be good to go for the 2020 campaign.
Wagner (ankle/knee) informed the media that his status for the Pro Bowl is uncertain, as he may need to undergo offseason surgery, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune
Wagner indicated both his knee and ankle could potentially need surgery, so that will be something to keep an eye on. He played and started all 16 regular-season games for the Seahawks this year. In the process, he recorded 159 sacks (86 solo), three sacks, one interception and a forced fumble.
Wagner recorded 13 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.
Wagner suffered an ankle injury in last week's win over the Panthers, but he wasn't hampered in this outing, playing every defensive snaps. Through 15 games, Wagner now has nine double-digit tackling performances, bringing his total to 152 stops this year. With 16 tackles in the season finale against San Francisco, Wagner will set a new career high in the category.

Wagner did not practice Wednesday or Thursday but will nevertheless suit up against Arizona. The 29-year-old has yet to miss a game this season.
Wagner (ankle) was absent during Thursday's practice session, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
A second straight day of missed practice is certainly not ideal, but head coach Pete Carrol has already gone on record saying he expects Wagner to be available Sunday against Arizona. If that's true, we'd expect the linebacker to make an appearance during Friday's practice, so keep an eye out to see how Seattle manages the linebacker's workload on the team's final day of practice before Sunday's divisional clash.
Wagner (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Wagner missed his first defensive snaps of the year after sustaining a sprained ankle in this past Sunday's win over the Panthers, but coach Pete Carroll said earlier in the week that he expects Wagner to play Week 16 versus the Panthers. Carroll reaffirmed his optimism by deeming Wagner "probable/questionable" Wednesday. We'll know more about the six-time Pro Bowler's status following Thursday's practice.
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Wagner (ankle) is expected to suit up against the Cardinals in Week 16, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports.
Wagner was forced out of Week 15's win over the Panthers in the fourth quarter due to a sprained ankle. It appears as though the star linebacker is trending toward availability for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Cardinals, though a final decision on his availability could come down to what he's able to do in the week's trio of practices. Wagner has secured double-digit tackles in five of the last six contests.
