Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was blitzed 221 times - second-most in the league - and hurried an NFL-high 71 times in 2019.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 25 touchdowns versus only one interception inside the 20 and posted a 15:0 TD-to-INT ratio inside the 10 last season.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson expressed his desire for the team's offense to pick up the pace moving forward. "I mean weve always been really good at two-minute [offense]," Wilson said. "Weve always been really good in those end of the half, those not always hurry-up situations, but those up-tempo situations [and] moments. And guys just make plays in those moments. I think the freedom of just going after it and just scoring as many points, you know?" Seattle's current offense still prefers to run the football as much as they can, but Wilson has remained a strong QB1 for fantasy owners despite their run-first approach. If the Seahawks speed up the tempo of their offense and let Wilson call the shots more often, he could be even more dynamic than he already is.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson expressed a desire for the offense to utilize more of an up-tempo attack in 2020 during an interview with Pro Football Talk Live last week. 'I mean we've always been really good at two-minute (offense),' Wilson said. 'We've always been really good in those end of the half, those not always hurry-up situations, but those up-tempo situations (and) moments. And the reality is this: I think the defense gets tired, first thing. And I think the second thing is that, you know, I really know kind of what I want to get after them, how we want to get after them, especially in those moments. And guys just make plays in those moments. I think the freedom of just going after it and just scoring as many points, you know?'
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy owners have long clamored for the Seahawks to give Wilson more opportunities in the passing game. The 31-year-old already carries a high fantasy ceiling, but it almost goes without saying that he could rival the best fantasy quarterbacks in a game if Seattle would ease up on its run-heavy ways early in games so Wilson could work his magic in the first half as well as the second. Regardless, he's a high-end fantasy QB1 for the foreseeable future.
A rough first half left Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his squad in a 21-3 hole as they came out from halftime. Wilson would then lead them on a fantastic charge back to bring the game to a five-point deficit, but an ugly dropped pass late in the fourth quarter left Seattle lacking. Wilson went 21-for-31 for 277 yards and a touchdown in the loss, but third-down struggles spelled doom for the underdogs. Wilson was also sacked five times, including on a couple critical downs like the team's two-point conversion attempt and their final third down of the night. Wilson has now been to the playoffs in six of his eight seasons, and he's won at least one playoff game in five of those six trips.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown as the team fell behind by 18 points twice but made a late charge before falling short 28-23 in Sunday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game. Wilson led the team in rushing with 64 yards, while RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 26 yards and two scores on 12 attempts. WR Tyler Lockett was highly efficient, turning his 10 targets into nine catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. WR DK Metcalf was held somewhat in check after setting a playoff record for most receiving yards by a rookie one week ago, finishing with four receptions for 59 yards. TE Jacob Hollister hauled in five catches for 47 yards. RB Travis Homer chipped in 27 more yards through the air to go along with his 13 rushing yards. CB Tre Flowers, LB K.J. Wright and DE Jadeveon Clowney paced Seattle with seven tackles apiece. LB Shaquem Griffin tallied one of Seattle's two sacks, while Wright and Clowney combined on the other.
Seattle Seahawks left tackles Duane Brown (knee) and George Fant (groin) and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (neck) are all listed as questionable for the Divisional Round against the Packers on Sunday. Offensive guard Mike Iupati (neck) is doubtful, so Seattle's offensive line could be in serious trouble against a ferocious Packers pass rush this weekend. If Brown and Fant are both out, quarterback Russell Wilson could be running for his life more plays than not in Green Bay. Still, the Seahawks run-first offense will continue to pound the rock with running backs Travis Homer and Marshawn Lynch against a suspect Green Bay run D. Ansah continues to deal with injuries and hasn't been very effective when on the field in his first season with Seattle.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has faced a few stingy defenses this year, and so far, he's won more of those games than he's lost. This week, he'll face another strong passing defense, and if he's going to win, he's going to have to do it in one of the toughest places in the league. Green Bay is expected to receive multiple inches of snow on Saturday night, and it will in the 20s during the game on Sunday evening. The last time he played a frozen playoff game was in Minnesota in 2015, and he only threw for 142 yards in that one. Green Bay's defense has allowed the 5th fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, Seattle's running backs totaled just 19 yards on the ground last week, and the Seahawks haven't won in Green Bay in 20 years. The deck is entirely stacked against Wilson having a good game, and while he might make enough magic happen to get a win, it's unlikely he puts up great numbers in the process.
Seattle Seahawks left tackles Duane Brown (knee) and George Fant (groin) both missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday, but Brown is expected to try to play in the Divisional Round against the Packers on Sunday. Brown missed the wild-card win over the Eagles, but Seattle's offensive line will really need him out there if his backup cannot play. Against a sneaky Packers pass rush this weekend, the Seahawks left tackle spot is a spot worth keeping an eye on. If both Brown and Fant can't play, quarterback Russell Wilson could be in for a long day in the Divisional Round.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have the best game of his career on Sunday night in Philadelphia, but he made the throws that he needed to make when he needed to make them. Seattle's running game was pretty much shut down for the duration of the game, outside of Wilson's own scrambles, so Wilson took to the air throughout. A couple huge passes to D.K. Metcalf gave Wilson his one passing touchdown as well as the critical third-down conversion that essentially ended the game. The 325 yards were the most passing yards Wilson has recorded in a postseason game since 2016, and he's now increased his TD/INT ratio to 6/2 over his last three playoff runs. Wilson will be facing a tougher matchup next week when he travels to Green Bay.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-30 passes for 325 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also led the team with 45 rushing yards. RB Marshawn Lynch rushed six times for just seven yards, but he had a touchdown and 25 receiving yards. WR DK Metcalf had seven grabs for a game-best 160 yards and a touchdown, while WR Tyler Lockett had four grabs for 62 yards. WR David Moore also chipped in with 57 yards on two grabs, while TE Jacob Hollister had two grabs for 16 yards on four targets. S Bradley McDougald had 11 total stops with a sack, two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit, while LB/DE Jadeveon Clowney also had five total stops, a sack, two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson won when he went to Philadelphia in Week 12, but he'll hope to play better en route to a win this time around. While Seattle won the game, Wilson had an uncharacteristically bad game. The weather took a lot of the blame though, as it was a wet, windy day. Sunday will be another windy one, but there's no rain in the forecast, so hopefully, Wilson can put up a better performance. He's still facing a banged-up Philly squad, but the Seahawks are no picture of health either. Expect Wilson to have a better day than he had last time he was in Philly, but this is likely going to be an ugly game all around.
Seattle Seahawks left tackle Duane Brown (knee) would need a "miraculous recovery" to play in the wild-card game against the Eagles on Sunday night, according to head coach Pete Carroll. George Fant will probably wind up protecting quarterback Russell Wilson's blind side for the first game of the playoffs. Seattle is extremely banged up on both sides of the ball following their tough last-second loss to the 49ers in Week 17, but they'll still have a shot to win on the road in the first round of the postseason while going up against an Eagles squad that is equally banged up.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson got off to another slow start on Sunday night, but he came roaring back and almost brought Seattle back for the win. With his team down by five and enough time for one last play, Wilson threw a short pass over the middle to Jacob Hollister as Hollister made for the end zone. Hollister would get drilled in a vicious helmet-to-helmet tackle a couple inches shy of the goal line, ending the comeback attempt. Wilson will now cruise into the playoffs on the back of another stellar season, throwing 31 touchdowns and just five interceptions while tallying 4,110 yards and a 106.3 QB rating.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 25 of 40 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Dec. 29. RB Travis Homer carried the ball 10 times for 62 yards and caught five passes for 30 yards. RB Marshawn Lynch had a dozen carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. WR DK Metcalf had six receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown. WR Tyler Lockett posted six catches for 51 yards and a score. TE Jacob Hollister had four receptions for 25 yards.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is looking down the barrel at another huge game against his biggest division-rival. Wilson and the Seahawks will host the 49ers in Seattle on Sunday night in a game that could determine so much. The division crown is on the line, playoff seeding is on the line, a playoff bye is on the line, the rivalry is back, and it's not just a primetime game that is the final game of the regular season but it's also the final game of the decade. Wilson will be back with a familiar cast of characters pulled from the retirement home as Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin join the group, and he'll be without Chris Carson. However, when push comes to shove, Wilson is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and he has a knack for making things happen against SF. Expect a wild one in the Emerald City.
It was a disappointing day for the team since they fell to the Cardinals, but Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson became the franchise's leading passer. Wilson passed Matt Hasselback to become the most prolific passer in team history, but he got there on one of the worst passing days he's had in months. Star running back Chris Carson (hip) was lost for the season, and Wilson couldn't seem to find a rhythm with any of his receivers. Wilson only completed multiple passes to two of eight receivers that were regularly on the field, and the team is now limping into the playoffs. Wilson will have to play phenomenally well against San Francisco if they stand any chance of winning the division next week.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 16-of-31 passes for 169 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Spin: Wilson and the Seattle offense struggled, as he looked very un-MVP-like in this one, and fantasy owners were really feeling the string in their championship games in what looked like a tasty matchup. The Seahawks finish with the 49ers in Week 17 on Sunday night.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will have the chance to light it up for the home crowd before Christmas this week when he faces off against an Arizona defense that is the worst in the league against the pass. The Cardinals have allowed more passing yards and fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks than any other team this season, and they've been nearly 10% worse than their closest competitor. Coming off a huge day against the Panthers, Wilson should be an electric choice in front of the home crowd. Expect a big day as Seattle closes in on an NFC West title.
With one of his best performances of the year, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson helped lead Seattle to the win over Carolina on Sunday. While Wilson's 286 yards and two touchdowns weren't the type of flashy numbers that folks love to see from the QBs nowadays, his solid approach included a 77% completion rate and his second-highest passer rating of the season. Wilson had been coming off the back of some recent sub-par performances, so this was a welcome change of pace. He also led Seattle to a 7-1 road record this year, the best in their franchise history. Wilson has clearly been surpassed by Lamar Jackson in the MVP race, but he's still a huge part of why the Seahawks have already clinched a playoff berth.
