Seahawks QB Russell Wilson piles up 73 rushing yards in Week 12


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed 17 of his 22 pass attempts for 211 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions while racking up a team-high 73 rushing yards on 10 carries in Seattle's 19-3 win over Arizona in Week 12.

Wilson has been a little uneven in the passing game lately, completing less than 50 percent of his attempts in Week 9 and less than 60 percent in Week 10, but played exceedingly well against a very good Arizona defense Sunday, posting a season-high 77.3 completion percentage while rushing for at least 70 yards for his third straight game. His touchdown came after the Seahawks put four field goals on the board, connecting with Cooper Helfet on a 20-yard score in the third quarter. He'll look to keep rolling when the Seahawks head to San Francisco Thursday.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson tosses two scores Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdowns Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 178 yards and two scores. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Wilson didn't have much going in the passing game, and was mostly limited to short passes. He averaged just 5.6 yards per completion. He was, once again, a strong presence in the run game. Wilson gained 71 yards on eight rushes. He finished second in the team in rushing, behind Marshawn Lynch.

Wilson will look for more Week 12 against the Cardinals. 


Russell Wilson can still get it done


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson still doesn't have much help in the passing game, but he continues to make things happen with his legs, and he did so again in a Week 11 loss to the Chiefs.

Wilson racked up 26 Fantasy points Sunday, and it was the 71 rushing yards that put him over 20 for the first time since Week 7. He passed for just 178 yards on 32 attempts otherwise, though did toss a pair of scores, his first since Week 8.

Wilson has at least 18 Fantasy points in two of his last four games, a good sign of how difficult things have been for him. When he rushes the ball well, Wilson's Fantasy upside is still pretty high, as he showed by picking up 16 of his Fantasy points on the ground last week. However, if he can't get going in that aspect of the game, he's awfully tough to rely on, given how few weapons the team has around him.

If Wilson is your top option at quarterback down the stretch, you probably aren't feeling great about your chances right now. However, his upside is great enough that you can still use him in the right matchups. 


Seahawks' Russell Wilson limited in the passing game Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was limited in the passing game Week 10 against the Giants.

Wilson, however, found a way to provide value to the club. The team mostly focused on the running game, and Wilson played a big role in that. He finished second on the team in rushing with 107 yards on 14 attempts. Wilson struggled in the passing game. While he completed 10 of 17 passes for 172 yards, Wilson also threw two interceptions. He was able to offset those struggles a bit by running in a 1 yard touchdown at the end of the game. 

Wilson will take on the Chiefs Week 11. 


Russell Wilson looking to snap out of funk


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is stuck in a rut recently, but he just may be able to snap out of it against the Giants in Week 10.

The Giants defense has struggled slowed down passing games recently, allowing 65 combined Fantasy points to the last quarterbacks they have faced. Of course, Wilson has struggled in his own right in that span, picking up just 24 Fantasy points in consecutive games against pretty mediocre defenses, as he has struggled a bit since the trade of Percy Harvin.

One trend will have to end this week; either Wilson's struggles will end, or the Giants' issues with quarterbacks will. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard believe Wilson will come out on top in the matchup, with both ranking him among the top-10 for quarterbacks in Week 10. Consider him a solid starting option, even with his struggles.

 


Here we go again with Russell Wilson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Remember how consistent Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson looked at the start of the season, scoring at least 15 Fantasy points every week with the occasional 30-point extravaganza?

Yeah ... that's pretty much shot to pieces.

His 126-yard performance against the Cowboys in Week 6 seemed like an outlier at the time, but he's done the same thing three out of the last four weeks now. And in Week 9, he did it against the Raiders -- or what seemed like a gimme matchup coming in -- completing less than half his passes for 179 yards and no touchdowns.

It was his first game without a touchdown of any kind this season. He at least ran for one against the Cowboys.

So we're back to where we started with Wilson. As one of the most efficient dual-threat quarterbacks in league history, he's a candidate for monster numbers any given week, but because of the Seahawks' inconsistencies on offense, he also has incredible downside. With six quarterbacks on bye in Week 10, you're probably starting him against the Giants, but you shouldn't expect him to carry your team.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson can't find the end zone Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson couldn't score Week 9 against the Raiders.

Wilson completed 17 of 35 passes for 179 yards. He did not throw a touchdown or an interception during the contest. Wilson did manage eight rushes for 31 yards. Wilson had trouble getting on the same page with his receivers during the game. A fair amount of his passing seemed to be off target early. On top of that, drops became a bit of an issue with Wilson's receivers. Wilson was able to lead a couple scoring drives, but Marshawn Lynch capped them off with rushing scores.

He'll look for more Week 10 against the Giants. 


Consistency proving tough for Russell Wilson


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has now alternated huge Fantasy performances with duds in each of the last four weeks, as he struggled to do much in a Week 8 win over the Panthers.

Wilson, who racked up 40 Fantasy points last week, managed just 14 Sunday. He passed for 199 yards and one touchdown, and rushed for 35 yards on the ground, and that last bit appears to be the key. Wilson topped 100 yards in Weeks 5 and 7, which also happened to be his best Fantasy performances of the season. In Weeks 6 and 7, he has combined for just 47 rushing yards, and just 24 Fantasy points as a result.

With the lack of weapons around him in the passing game, Wilson is going to have to do a lot on his own to be Fantasy relevant. As he has shown in recent weeks, he is certainly capable of that, but there is reason to be a little bit concerned about his ability to post consistent production moving forward. 


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson manages one score Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tossed one touchdown Week 8 against the Panthers.

Seattle's offense was held in check throughout most of the contest. Wilson especially had trouble early, missing throws and looking uncomfortable in the pocket. He also didn't have much room to run, picking up 35 rushing yards, most of which came late. Wilson did come through when it mattered, leading a game-winning touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. Wilson completeled all five passes on the drive, eventually hitting Luke Willson for the 23 yard score.

Wilson finished 20 of 32, for 199 yards and a touchdown. He'll take on the Raiders Week 9.


Are we really doubting Russell Wilson still?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Coming off the best game of his life (at least from a statistical standpoint), Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is started in only 67 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues. Is that a problem to anyone else?

In case you haven't noticed, the Seahawks haven't been as dominant defensively this year, which has made Wilson's performance more critical to their success. The result is better numbers for the third-year passer. He's contributed at least two touchdowns in every game but one, and that one was sandwiched between two three-touchdown games, including Week 7.

In those three-touchdown games, Wilson also rushed for more than 100 yards, leading to some monster production that has made him the fifth-best quarterback in standard CBSSports.com leagues to date.

So he's consistent and has a high ceiling from week to week. So ... what's the deal, then? Certainly it's not the matchup steering you away from him in Week 8. The hosting Panthers have allowed the sixth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season and rank 22nd against the pass, giving up 250.7 yards per game.


Losing does wonders for Russell Wilson's numbers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) Though it wasn't the case Week 6 against Dallas, when the Seahawks began what's now their first losing streak since 2012, quarterback Russell Wilson has thrived with the team's diminished dominance this season. Never was it more apparent than Week 7 at St. Louis, when a come-from-behind effort translated to a career high in total yards. He completed 23 of 36 passes for 313 yards and ran seven times for 106. It was his second 100-yard rushing effort in his last three games.

He also had three touchdowns -- two through the air and one on the ground -- giving him multiple scores in five of the team's six games this season. He had multiple scores in only eight of 16 games last season.

Though the Seahawks have done a fine job limiting yardage, they haven't been as dominant defensively as they were last season, and that's given them a greater need for offense late in games. Though they won't always be playing from behind against a defense that will allow them to make up ground, they may need to throw in the fourth quarter often enough for Wilson to keep this up.

He's a good choice to start again Week 8 at Carolina.


Russell Wilson explodes for 419 total yards, 3 TDs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, held to 138 total yards by the Cowboys in Week 6, erupted in the Week 7 loss at St. Louis. Wilson hit 23 of 36 throws for 313 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, and he ran seven times for 106 yards and another score.

Wilson scored a rushing touchdown for the third straight week when he scooted 19 yards on a zone-read play in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Wilson broke containment for a career-long 52-yard scamper.

He threw both touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, hitting tight end Cooper Helfet for 19 yards and wideout Doug Baldwin for 9 yards.

Wilson, who's thrown two touchdowns in five of six starts, visits the Panthers in Week 8.


Bad Russell Wilson shows up again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) Well, that wasn't supposed to happen.

Not after throwing for two touchdowns in each of his first four games, not against a defense that entered the day ranked 18th against the pass and certainly not at home, where he's been at his best since entering the league in 2012. But yes, Russell Wilson let down those Fantasy owners who had just begun to think they could rely on him on an every-week basis, turning in a stinker Week 6 against Dallas.

Wilson is no stranger to stinkers in Fantasy, but in the past, they've come when the Seahawks didn't need anything from him, whether because of their defense or running back Marshawn Lynch. But this time, he just didn't play well, completing half his passes for 126 yards and one interception.

So does this change our assessment of him in Fantasy? Well, maybe I did go a little far with the must-start talk. But I think the Seahawks will need to rely on Wilson more this year than in years past, and I still think that means he'll be more consistent overall. Don't lose faith.


Russell Wilson struggles mightily against Cowboys


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson saw his brilliant start to the season come to a crashing halt Sunday against the Cowboys. In a surprisingly poor performance at home, Wilson completed 14 of 28 throws for 126 yards and no touchdowns with one interception. He rushed twice for 12 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown.

This was Wilson's worst performance since a Week 16 home loss to Arizona last year. Aside from his 53-yard completion to Jermaine Kearse, Wilson passed for 73 yards on 27 other throws. Wilson averaged 4.5 yards per attempt and posted a 47.6 passer rating.

Wilson scored a rushing touchdown for the second straight week. He'll visit the Rams in Week 7. 


Russell Wilson at his best in road game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/7/2014) Coming into the season, one common strategy for using Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was to start him at home and sit him on the road. It's not that he's been bad on the road, but in an equal number of home and road games in his career, he has 10 more touchdown passes at home than on the road. For an inconsistent performer (at least in terms of Fantasy production), it just seemed like one way to improve the odds.

But then he goes and does what he did Week 5 at Washington, rushing for 122 yards and throwing for 201 with three combined touchdowns. It was by far his best performance of the season, and moreover, it came on the road.

In my latest post the Fantasy Football Today blog, I review some of Wilson's past road performances and wonder if we should be sitting him at all. Be sure to check it out.


Russell Wilson runs wild in MNF victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ran for a career-high 122 yards and a touchdown and threw for 201 yards and two more scores in Monday's win at Washington. Shredding the Redskins on zone-read plays and scrambles, Wilson averaged 11.1 yards on his 11 carries as he recorded the most rushing yards by a quarterback in Monday Night Football history.

Wilson threw two touchdowns for the fourth straight game and has accounted for nine scores and one turnover this season. He hit wideout Jermaine Kearse for a 15-yard touchdown in the first quarter and running back Marshawn Lynch for a 9-yard score in the fourth. In between, Wilson faked a handoff to Lynch and scooted 9 yards for an easy rushing touchdown.

Wilson completed 18 of 24 passes (75 percent) and did not commit a turnover despite taking three sacks. With Seattle protecting a 7-point lead and just over two minutes left, Wilson eluded three rushers on 3rd-and-4 and floated one to Lynch for a 30-yard gain.

Wilson plays the Cowboys in Week 6.

Russell Wilson scores twice in Super Bowl rematch


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson found the end zone twice and did just enough to manage an overtime victory over the Broncos at home in Week 3.

Wilson fired a 39-yard touchdown pass to Ricardo Lockette and found Marshawn Lynch for a 5-yard strike -- all in the second quarter. He was picked off by Chris Harris in the fourth quarter for his only blemish of the afternoon. He bounced back and led his team to a 13-play, 80-yard drive which resulted in a game-winning touchdown run from Lynch in overtime.

Wilson completed 24 of 34 passes for 258 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. He was sacked three times. He rushed for 40 yards on nine carries.

Seattle is on a bye before returning to action in Week 5 at Washington.


Russell Wilson to stay hot at home


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson should continue to roll against the Broncos at home in Week 3.

Wilson will face a tougher defense this time around in the rematch of the Super Bowl against the Broncos, but he did well in the last meeting when it mattered most. Wilson had 206 passing yards and two touchdowns and three carries for 26 yards.

He's coming off two games in a row with 21 Fantasy points against Green Bay and San Diego, and Wilson typically fares better at home than on the road with at least 18 Fantasy points in 11 of the 17 games he's played in Seattle in his career. Wilson likely won't match Peyton Manning in the stat category this week, but he won't be far behind. He's a quality starting option in all formats. 

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Russell Wilson tosses two touchdowns in loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tossed two touchdown passes Week 2 against the Chargers.

Despite the fact that the Seahawks didn't possess the ball all that long, Wilson was able to get the team moving down the field. Wilson didn't strike until the end of the second quarter. With time running out, he found Robert Turbin on a 3 yard strike. Wilson did the same thing in the third, hitting Marshawn Lynch for the 14 yard score. 

Wilson finished 17 of 25, for 202 yards and two scores. He also had 18 rushing yards during the contest. He'll take on the Broncos Week 3. 


Russell Wilson tosses two touchdowns opening night


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdowns in the season opener against the Packers. 

Wilson was efficient, completing 19 of 28 passes for 191 yards. He seemed to enjoy having a healthy Percy Harvin in the lineup. Harvin led the team with seven receptions. On his two touchdown throws, Harvin was not the target. On his second quarter touchdown pass, Wilson got the Packers cornerback to bite after a read-option play. This freed up Ricardo Lockette, who broke a tackle en route to a 33 yard score. 

With the Seahawks trying to run out the clock late, Wilson managed to chip in another touchdown. On a fourth and one play, Wilson faked to running back Marshawn Lynch before hitting a wide open Derrick Coleman for the score. 

Wilson was nearly picked off twice during the contest, but had both balls knocked away by his receivers. He was sacked once by the Packers defense. Wilson also ran for 29 yards. 

Wilson will take on the Chargers Week 2. 


Russell Wilson ready to shine Week 1?


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson begins his post-Super Bowl year with a strong matchup against the Packers Week 1. 

Wilson performed well during the preseason, completing 78.6 percent of his passes. He threw for three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Wilson also managed three rushing touchdowns to cap off a strong preseason.

His ability to put up solid Fantasy numbers should be tested Week 1. The Packers did not boast a great defense against the pass last season. The team allowed quarterbacks to score 20.65 Fantasy points, which was the seventh worst clip in the league. Green Bay has been proactive in resolving the issue, drafting Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round, but it’s unclear how much better the team’s defensive backs will perform. 

The bigger question will be whether the Seahawks open up the offense for Wilson this season. With Marshawn Lynch out for much of the preseason, Wilson showed the ability to carry the team with his arm. Now that Lynch is back, the team could opt to get back to conservative play-calling with the franchise quarterback. Wilson has all the makings of a strong matchup here, but could get the short end of the stick if the Seahawks pound Lynch.


Russell Wilson catches fire with three scores Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson caught fire again during Friday's preseason game against the Bears.

Wilson scored a seven yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter. In the second quarter, he Jermaine Kearse for a 12-yard strike and Christine Michael for a 7-yard strike. He completed 15 of 20 passes for 202 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked once and finished with four carries for 23 yards and a touchdown through the ground.

Wilson has compiled 360 yards through the air while completing 30 of 39 passes this preseason. He has five touchdowns, three of which have come through the ground. While completing 79.6 percent of his passes, he has not committed a turnover.

Russell Wilson scores twice on the ground vs. San Diego


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson scored two rushing touchdowns during Friday's preseason game at home against San Diego.

Wilson punched it in the end zone from 1-yard out and had 5-yard touchdown run all in the second quarter. He played nearly a half of football before donning a baseball cap on the sidelines.

Wilson completed 11 of 13 pass attempts for 121, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He rushed for 31 yards on four carries. Through two preseason games, he's completed 15 of 22 passes for 158 yards.

Russell Wilson plays two series in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson looked sharp in his first preseason game Thursday night against the Broncos in Denver.

Wilson played with the first-team offense for two series, highlighted by a 14-play, 90-yard drive which resulted in a Christine Michael touchdown in the second quarter. Wilson completed 4 of 6 passes for 37 yards. He was sacked twice and also had one run for a gain of 7 yards. 

Wilson and the Seahawks will host the Chargers on Aug. 15.

Russell Wilson talks up chemistry with Percy Harvin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin made one regular-season catch in 2013 as he missed most of the year with a hip injury. Quarterback Russell Wilson told NFL Network the duo is building chemistry quickly.

"We've connected so much, and he's so fired up," Wilson said. "He looks so good."
