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 says Terrelle Pryor can do 'great things'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson applauded the team's trade for Terrelle Pryor.

"I think the thing about our quarterback room is that we want to be the hardest-working guys in the room, and the hardest-working guys in the building," Wilson said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, per NFL.com. "That's the way we look at it. I know that Terrelle will bring that to the table. We're looking forward to that. I'm looking forward to just being around him and getting out there. I know that our locker room definitely became more athletic with him. He can do a lot of great things."

Pryor has a chance to be the No. 3 quarterback behind Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson.


Terrelle Pryor trade to Seattle becomes official


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) The Seahawks officially announced the acquisition of quarterback Terrelle Pryor from the Raiders in exchange for pick No. 247 in this year's draft.

Pryor played in 15 games with 10 starts in three seasons in Oakland. Last season, he completed 57.4 percent of his passes, tacking on 1,798 yards with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions while also rushing for 576 yards and two touchdowns. He is not expected to change positions and will likely compete for the backup role behind Russell Wilson.

Russell Wilson's goal: Be the best ever


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is setting a lofty goal after winning the Super Bowl. "Why can't I be the best quarterback to ever play the game one day?' Wilson said, per ESPN.com. "I'm not right now. I've got a long way to go. But one day, you know?"

Wilson said he was inspired by his late father, who always used to tell him: "Russ, why not you?"

Wilson said he's going through "a championship offseason" and that he and his teammates are hungry for another title, the report said.


Russell Wilson getting no special treatment


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said quarterback Russell Wilson is still "a young guy figuring it out."

"He needs all the attention that everyone else needs, and he’s gonna get it,” Carroll said. “Russell’s just a young guy figuring it out. Of course, he applies himself so well that you think that he’s okay. I think that would be a tragic mistake. He’s just developing. He’s just coming on. He needs work fundamentally. He needs work on the principles of what we’re doing. He needs repetitions with the guys he plays with. All of that will just continue to add to his play.

"So we’re not going to treat him any differently than anybody else. We’re gonna battle like crazy to make him push his game as far as he can take it."


Seahawks re-sign Tarvaris Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson confirmed via Twitter that he'll attend Rangers spring training on March 3, reports Fox Sports. It's still unclear what exactly Wilson will do. He might just speak to the players about his experiences.

Wilson played two years in the Rockies' organization and later was selected by Texas in the Rule 5 draft.


Russell Wilson very efficient in Super Bowl victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson overthrew tight end Zach Miller on his first Super Bowl pass before settling down to play an extremely efficient game. Wilson finished 18 of 25 for 206 yards and two touchdowns and ran three times for 26 yards.

He did not commit a turnover while posting a 123.1 passer rating and repeatedly converting third downs. In the second half, Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse for a 23-yard touchdown and Doug Baldwin for a 10-yard score.

"It was a great team win," Wilson said, noting Seattle got major contributions from offense, defense and special teams.


Russell Wilson playing with chip on his shoulder


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) The Seahawks' Russell Wilson was the sixth quarterback taken in the 2012 draft. The 5-foot-11 Wilson plays like a man with something to prove, and has his team in the Super Bowl.

"I'm very competitive," Wilson told NFL Network. "I believe I could be picked before all those guys, but it wasn't going to affect me either way. I knew that the Seattle Seahawks were going to pick me. I was going to make the 31 other teams regret it."

Russell Wilson could be sneaky Playoff Challenge option


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/28/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson might end up being a good option for anyone still alive in Playoff Challenge leagues as Seattle is set to face Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Wilson has been a horrible Fantasy quarterback to close the season. He hasn't been over 17 Fantasy points since Week 14, and in two playoff games against New Orleans and San Francisco he has combined for just 318 passing yards and one touchdown and eight carries for 16 yards and a fumble.

But the Broncos have given up production to quarterbacks of late with Terrelle Pryor, Philip Rivers and Tom Brady all scoring at least 21 Fantasy points in the past three games. And if the Broncos go ahead in this game and Seattle is chasing points, then Wilson will have to make plays to keep the Seahawks alive. That was the case in the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers, when he had 103 passing yards and a touchdown in the second half for 10 Fantasy points, which is the most production he's had in the postseason thus far through two games.

Peyton Manning is obviously the best Fantasy quarterback in this game, but depending on your Playoff Challenge roster, don't be afraid of Wilson. He could surprise us with a big performance when it matters most.


Russell Wilson hoping for snow in Super Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wouldn't mind playing Super Bowl XLVIII in a snowstorm. ‘‘Hopefully, it snows,’’ Wilson said. ‘‘That would be kind of fun to play the Super Bowl in the snow.’’

Unfortunately for Wilson, the forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-30s, sunshine and little chance of precipitation.


Terrance Knighton breaks down Russell Wilson's tendencies


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, who's been studying film of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, shared a few tendencies with the media, reports ProFootballTalk.com.

"Quarterbacks have tendencies," Knighton said. "His tendency is that he is a right-handed quarterback; he wants to get out to his right and throw. He’s more successful that way. So we’ve got to do a good job of keeping him in the pocket and force him out of his comfort zone.

"When he’s moving left he’ll tend to run it more and when he’s moving right he wants to pass it more. We just have to do a good job of containing him. He’ll get out and he’ll make his plays during the game, but we’ll just have to limit them.”

Knighton praised Wilson, saying he rarely turns the ball over and is improving every week. Knighton is especially wary of Wilson's scrambling ability.

“He extends plays, he’s a smart player and he can beat you with his feet and with his arm,” Knighton said. “We have to keep him in the pocket.”


Russell Wilson getting Super Bowl advice from Drew Brees


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson looked up to Drew Brees when he was growing up, and Wilson reached out to his idol about how to handle Super Bowl preparations, reports ESPN.com.

“We've been in communication over the past week, just about the experience,” Wilson told the website. “Like I said, he knows I look up to him. He's a great individual and he was just talking about the experience, and it's no different. The biggest thing is taking care of all tickets and taking care of all family early in the week last week, which I was able to do last Monday and just focus on the game.”


Russell Wilson overcomes rough start in title game win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson overcame a rough start in Sunday's NFC Championship victory over the 49ers.

WIlson was stripped and lost a fumble on the opening play of the game, which led to a San Francisco field goal. However, he came up big in the fourth quarter, as he threw a touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse, which gave the lead back to Seattle with 13:52 remaining in the game.

Aldon Smith jumped offside on a 4th-and-7, which gave WIlson a free play, and Wilson hooked up with Kearse, who made a leaping catch over Carlos Rogers in the end zone. It was Wilson's only touchdown pass of the night.

Wilson completed 16 of 25 passes for 215 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He was sacked four times and had five carries for no yards in a 23-17 win. Seattle will travel to MetLife Stadium for a clash against the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Russell Wilson not playing well heading into title game


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) The Seahawks play the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, and quarterback Russell Wilson is in need of a big game in this matchup. Based on his recent level of play, it might not happen against San Francisco's defense.

Wilson has struggled of late, and he could have another tough week against the 49ers defense. From Week 14 through the Divisional round of the playoffs he is averaging just 11.2 Fantasy points, and he hit a new low last week against the Saints with just five points.

Wilson struggled against the 49ers in both meetings this year with 12 Fantasy points in Week 2 and 11 points in Week 14. He was awesome against San Francisco at home in 2012 with a four-touchdown performance, but he's been held under 200 passing yards in four career meetings with an interception in each outing.

The 49ers also come into this game having held Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton to a combined 31 Fantasy points the past two games, and it's hard to trust Wilson right now in any Playoff Challenge league.


Russell Wilson seeing a lot of pressure


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was pressured on 43.8 percent of his dropbacks this season, the highest rate in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. In contrast, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was pressured on 34.7 percent of his dropbacks, right about average.

The two square off in Sunday's NFC Championship Game in Seattle.


Pete Carroll not worried about Russell Wilson's slump


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is averaging 157.6 passing yards with a 78.0 rating over his last five games, but coach Pete Carroll said the second-year pro is "doing great."

"I think he's doing what we need to do in these games," Carroll said, via ProFootballTalk.com. "We can always do better. We're always looking for more and he is too and all that. But as long as our football team is playing well and we're playing within the formula and we're playing good defense, we're running the football, we're playing on teams, and we're taking care of the ball and getting it, we're going to have a really good chance to win and that's what's most important to us.”

Wilson said he needs to improve but "we're winning a lot of football games and that's the best thing. I think that I can always do better, I've always thought that. So there's a lot of room for improvement and that the exciting about it.”


Seahawks' passing game not clicking


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have to throw much for his team to beat the Saints. But Seattle actually has been in a passing funk for five games.

In that span, Seattle has gone 3-2 with Wilson completing 57 percent of his throws for an average of 157.6 yards. He's averaged 6.6 yards per attempt, with four touchdowns, three interceptions and a 78.0 passer rating.


Russell Wilson watches others do dirty work in playoff win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have to do much Saturday against the Saints. Sticking the ball into the gut of featured back Marshawn Lynch and watching his defense perform pretty much sufficed.

Wilson wilted after a strong start in which he completed his first four passes. He finished 9 of 18 for 103 yards, but avoided picks. He also threw a perfect 24-yard pass to wideout Doug Baldwin on 3rd and 3 with just under three minutes remaining in the game to set up a Lynch touchdown that clinched the victory.

That was about all Wilson did right after intermission. He completed no passes in the third quarter, though the windy, rainy conditions played a role in his inconsistency.


Russell Wilson does little in regular-season finale


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have to do much in the Week 17 win over the Rams as the Seahawks' defense dominated. Wilson started slowly and finished 15 of 23 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown while not committing a turnover.

It was the fourth straight game in which Wilson passed for a single touchdown. He carried five times for minus-1 yard. Wilson's favorite target was Golden Tate: the duo hooked up eight times, including on a 47-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. 

Wilson finishes the regular season with 3,304 passing yards, 27 total touchdowns and 14 turnovers.


Russell Wilson seeking bounce back performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will be seeking a bounce-back performance during his regular season finale at home against the Rams in Week 17.

Wilson completed 11 of 27 passes for a season-low 108 yards, with one touchdown and one interception in Week 16 against Arizona. Although the Seahawks have already clinched a playoff spot, Wilson still has something to play for, as his team is fighting for home-field advantage and an NFC West division title.

In his previous meeting against the Rams, Wilson threw for two touchdowns and no picks but was held to only 139 passing yards. He has been held under 150 yards passing four times this season. Opposing quarterbacks have scored only 16.27 Fantasy points per game this season. Consider Wilson a low-end starting option for the final week of the regular season.

Russell Wilson barely cracks 100 yards passing Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was not at his best as he barely cracked 100 passing yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals in Week 16.

WIlson bought some time out of the pocket and found Zach Miller wide open in the corner of the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. With a chance to tie the game, Wilson had a tipped pass picked off by Karlos Dansby with 1:56 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Wilson completed 11 of 27 passes for 108 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He was sacked four times and finished with a 49.6 passer rating. He also chipped in with two carries for 32 yards on the ground in a 17-10 defeat.

The Seahawks will host the Rams in Week 17.

Russell Wilson looking to repeat Week 7 success


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/19/2013) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has averaged just 14 Fantasy points over his last two games. But he had a string of four 22-plus point games before his last two, and put up 25 in a Week 7 matchup against this Sunday's opponent, the Cardinals. 

The Cardinals have been wildly erratic against quarterbacks. In the last five games, they've allowed them to score 12, 15, 29, four, and 38 Fantasy points. It averages out to 19.6 Fantasy points per game, but that number masks a ton of fluctuation and unpredictability. Arizona held Andrew Luck to 15 points, but allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to score 38 (and pass for 402 yards).

It might be best to just start from Wilson's Week 7 performance -- 235 passing yards and three touchdowns. Sidney Rice was still in the mix back then, but the Seahawks (and Wilson) have managed to push forward without him; Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate have held their own. 

There's not much here to push Wilson up or down, matchup-wise. He's a top-12 option this week, and can be left in lineups where he had been starting throughout the season. 


Tarvaris Jackson completes two passes in mop-up duty


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Seahawks backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson received some mop-up duty during a 23-0 win Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. Jackson played the final 10 minutes, completing 2 of 2 passes for 16 yards.

The Seahawks are back in action Week 16 vs. Arizona.
