Seahawks GM: 'No timeline' on Russell Wilson's contract extension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Seahawks general manager John Schneider told reporters during Thursday's combine press conference that there is "no timeline" on Russell Wilson's contract extension, per the Palm Beach Post.

"I've talked to his people, and they know where we're at," Schneider said.

Schneider also indicated last week that he's expecting to find a way to keep his top quarterback on the roster long-term and he is not afraid to do so unconventionally. Wilson, who has one year left on his rookie contract, has led Seattle to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. Wilson registered 3,475 passing yards, with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2014. He also ran for 849 yards and six touchdowns.


Russell Wilson: 'I obviously want to play in Seattle forever'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/3/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is poised to receive a huge contract extension as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. Before leaving for the offseason, he told reporters he wasn't thinking about his contract during his team's run to the Super Bowl.

"To be honest with you, I haven’t really thought anything about it," he said, per the Seattle Times. "You know, I obviously want to play in Seattle forever. That’s my goal, and I want to be with this organization. I love this organization. I love this city. I love these fans, and I love winning here. We’ve won a lot of football games here, and that’s the goal, you know.

"Every year I step on the field, every time I go out those doors back there, the goal is to have a winning day and the goal is to have a winning practice with great teammates around me. So, I think that’s where my focus is, is just continue to find ways to win, and hopefully it’s here in Seattle forever. But still -- I’m still thinking I’ve got a game on Sunday. That’s what I’m still feeling like.”


Seahawks' Russell Wilson throws three touchdowns in win


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tossed three touchdowns in Saturday's win against the Panthers.

Wilson completed 15 of 22 passes for 268 yards and three scores. He was able to pull off a number of big plays, averaging 12.2 yards per completion. Wilson did have seven rushing attempts, but was mostly held in check on the ground, picking up 22 yards. 

Jermaine Kearse played a big role in Wilson's performance. Kearse was able to get open deep a number of times against the Carolina secondary. He had two gains of 33 yards and picked up a 63 yard touchdown. Wilson made sure to spread the love, tossing his other touchdowns to Luke Willson and Doug Baldwin.

Wilson will take on the winner of the Packers/Cowboys game in the NFC Championship.


Seahawks' Russell Wilson doesn't do much Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a rough game Week 17 against the Rams.

Wilson completed 17 of 25 passes for 239 yards. He did not throw any touchdowns, but did toss one interception during the contest. Wilson was under constant pressure, taking three sacks. He was often forced to throw the ball away when he was able to elude the pass rush. When he did have time, Wilson was able to hit on some big plays. He averaged 9.6 yards per completion. Wilson had six carries, but gained just 7 rushing yards. He also fumbled twice, though the Seahawks managed to recover both balls.

Wilson had a solid third season, setting career-highs in both passing and rushing yards. While he saw his passing touchdowns fall from 26 to 20, Wilson made up for that with a career-high six rushing scores. 


Russell Wilson could be in for strong finish


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2014) With the Cardinals struggling to get anything going offensively behind third-string quarterback Ryan Lindley, the Seahawks offense got repeated opportunities to shine Week 16 in Arizona. And quarterback Russell Wilson took advantage, throwing for a season-high 339 yards while rushing for 88. For the second time in three games, he contributed three total touchdowns, two in the air and one on the ground.

The Seahawks have gotten back to winning with their defense in recent weeks, making Wilson at times an afterthought. But when pressed to make plays, he's shown he's still capable of putting up big numbers.

Chances are he'll need to make plays in Week 17 against a Rams team that has played well of late, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Wilson's previous season high in passing yards came in his first meeting with them back in Week 7, when he threw for 313 and ran for 106. Despite his up-and-down tendencies, you'll want him active for the season's final week.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson picks up three scores Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson turned in a fantastic start Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Wilson completed 20 of 31 passes for 339 yards and two scores. Despite playing one of the tougher defenses in the NFL, Wilson did not turn the ball over during the contest. He had a mostly clear pocket, or at least was able to escape when things got muddy, taking just one sack. When Wilson did have time, he was able to hit on big play, averaging 10.9 yards per completion. 

On top of that, Wilson turned in a fine game on the ground. An early 55 yard run started things off, but a late 5 yard scramble really put the nail in the coffin. Wilson stiff-armed a defender on his way to the end zone.

Wilson will take on the Rams Week 17.


Seahawks' Russell Wilson throws for one score Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for one touchdown Week 15 against the 49ers.

Wilson completed 12 of 24 passes for 168 yards and a score during the contest. It wound up being a fairly tame game for Wilson, as the San Francisco defense was able to put pressure on him most of the day. Wilson wound up taking five sacks, and turned the ball over on an interception. He wasn't as much of a threat on the ground, either, gaining just 27 rushing yards.

Wilson will hope for more Week 16 against the Cardinals.


Seahawks' Russell Wilson picks up three scores Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson picked up three scores Week 14 against the Eagles.

Wilson completed 22 of 37 passes for 263 yards and two passing touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Wilson was able to use his escapability in the pocket to extend some plays. While he was sacked twice, he also managed to break free and find receivers often. Wilson averaged 7.1 yards per attempt. As usual, he was also a threat in the running game. Wilson ran the ball 10 times for 48 yards. He was able to break free on a 26 yard touchdown run in the second quarter, tying the game up. 

Wilson will look for more Week 15 against the 49ers. 


Russell Wilson may be forced to pass more


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) If you have yet to put your faith back in Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with his recent turnaround -- he has averaged 21.7 Fantasy points over his last three games, according to standard CBSSports.com scoring -- his matchup Week 14 at Philadelphia might be that last little push you need.

The Eagles rank 26th against the pass, giving up 258.6 yards per game, and have allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Their opponents are pretty much forced to pass against them just to keep from falling too far behind. The Eagles are averaging 31.3 points per game, fourth-most in the league, and have been even more productive with Mark Sanchez under center, averaging 34.4 in their last five.

Of course, they haven't had to face the Seahawks during that stretch, who are back to being a dominant defensive team. If their defense steps up against a strong offense, Wilson may not be needed for big numbers, which is always the risk for him.

But based on how his last few weeks have gone and how much better the Eagles are offensively than the Seahawks' last few opponents, more likely than not, Wilson has good things in store. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him among their top 10 quarterbacks for this week.


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.


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 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 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 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.
