Wilson completed 26 of 36 passes for 277 yards and one touchdown with an interceptions during Sunday's game against the Panthers. He added 29 yards on three carries in the 40-7 win.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson didn't shoulder a heavy burden thanks to a dominant showing in the running game for Seattle and did not find the end zone through the air until he hooked up with Jimmy Graham for a one-yard score in the fourth quarter. He bounced back from a dismal performance in Week 12 and managed his fourth-highest total of passing yards of the season, and he looked spry while moving in and around the pocket en route to his second-best rushing performance of the year. Wilson should benefit from an improved rushing attack and he will look to exploit a beatable Packers defensive unit next week.

Wilson completed 17 of 33 passes for 151 yards and two interceptions, and also rushed for 80 yards in Sunday's 5-14 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday's loss was unquestionably Wilson's worst passing performance of the season, as he registered his first multi-interception game while also chalking up season lows in completion percentage (51.5 percent) and yards per pass (4.58 yards). Though he struggled passing the ball he managed to salvage at least some fantasy value in through his performance on the ground, where his 80 yards doubled his total rushing yards on the season. He looks more willing to run than he has all season, indicating his ankle injury is likely a thing of the past. Next week Wilson and the Seahawks return home for a matchup with the Panthers.

Wilson completed 18 of 31 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown, and also caught a score in Sunday's 26-15 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson wasn't doing much for most of the first half, but made a nice throw on the run to Jimmy Graham that resulted in a 35-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. His touchdown catch came on a gadget play in the third quarter, as he ran a pass pattern after pitching the ball to Doug Baldwin. Although Wilson ran for just 19 yards on eight carries, he looks more spry in and out of the pocket, and seems to be over the ankle injury that bothered him for a big chunk of the year. Next up for Wilson are the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay.

According to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, Wilson is just about fully healthy again, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson has not missed a game this season, but he was slowed earlier in the campaign after suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 1. That injury understandably impacted Wilson's mobility, but he was able to run full speed in practice for the first time since the incident last week. With six touchdowns in his past two games to boot, Wilson's performance level has elevated with his improved health, something that could make him an even more valuable fantasy commodity during the second half of this season.

Wilson completed 25 of 37 passes for 348 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Seattle's 31-24 at New England on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson looked his healthiest since Week 1. He's still not 100 percent, but he moved more like his normal self, avoiding the pass rush and scrambling to keep plays alive. The Seahawks also had an improved rushing game with C.J. Prosise, which helped Wilson and the passing game. Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin on all of his touchdown passes.

Wilson completed 20 of 26 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing three times for 10 yards and another score in Monday night's win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson's performance was easily his best since Week 4, even though the vast majority of his production came during the first half. After going three straight games without accounting for a touchdown, Wilson ran in from three yards out early on, giving him his first score on the ground this season. Then, Wilson got some help from tight end Jimmy Graham on his two second-quarter touchdown tosses, which both came off one-handed grabs from Graham. Although the Seahawks' offense stagnated significantly in the second half, Wilson's fantasy owners should be pleased by the fact that three of his eight total touchdowns this season came Monday alone.

Wilson was "really at his best" this week in practice, according to coach Pete Carroll, as he continues to recover from ankle, knee and pectoral injuries, the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson's high ankle sprain seems to be nearly recovered (he did not wrap it for last week's game), and he'll wear a smaller, lighter knee brace this week, which could help his mobility. Carroll said "there's no question" Wilson significantly improved in practice this week, though his optimism should be taken with a grain of salt. Until Wilson is healthy, the Seahawks offense likely will continue to struggle.

Wilson (knee/pectoral) completed a full practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson has consistently landed on the injury report this season, but even if he's able to handle every rep in a given practice, his mobility has been lacking on game day. The development has had a trickle-down effect on his game logs and those of the skill-position players within Seattle's offense. In particular, he hasn't recorded a touchdown in three consecutive games and is averaging just a career-worst 1.8 YPC.

Wilson completed 22 of 34 pass attempts for 253 yards and an interception Sunday against the Saints. He added 11 yards on three carries in the 25-20 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Presented with an excellent matchup on paper, Wilson was unable to find the end zone for the third straight game and managed a pedestrian 7.4 yards per attempt, despite completing 65 percent of his passes. Wilson has turned the ball over just three times, but he has only five passing touchdowns, has yet to score on the ground and has managed just 44 rushing yards through seven games. He has been hampered by injuries this season, and although his team sits at 4-2-1 he is clearly not performing up to the lofty standards he has set for himself. Seattle will face a Bills defense in Week 9 that just surrendered 41 points to New England, presenting Wilson with a chance to bounce back after another week's removal from his physical ailments.

Wilson (knee/pectoral) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game in New Orleans, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson already said he will play, and head coach Pete Carroll confirmed as much Friday morning. It was still unclear if the quarterback would have an injury designation, which might lead to a bit of uncertainty. Wilson may be somewhat limited by his various ailments, but there's no longer any question that he'll suit up for Sunday's excellent matchup.
