Russell Wilson QB SEA 7 Days
Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 339 yards and two touchdowns, adding six carries for 88 yards and another touchdown, in Sunday's 35-6 win over the Cardinals
Given both the stakes and quality of opponent, Wilson turned in arguably the finest game of his career. The 339 passing yards represent a new personal best, and while he did have a potential interception dropped, Wilson was brilliant for most of the night. There was no shortage of highlighst, as he broke off a 55-yard scramble in the first quarter, and then threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Luke Willson in the second quarter. Wilson capped his night off with a five-yard touchdown on a designed run late in the fourth quarter, when he broke a pair of tackles to turn a big loss into a stat-padding score. He'll face a tough St. Louis defense in Week 17, but he piled up 313 passing yards, 106 rushing yards and three total touchdowns in a Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Wilson completed 12-of-24 passes for 168 yards, with a touchdown and interception, in Sunday's 17-7 win against the 49ers. He also ran five times for 27 yards.
Wilson was under a lot of pressure throughout, but his interception in the closing seconds of the first half was simply a bad throw, costing the Seahawks a field goal attempt. He did throw a touchdown pass to Paul Richardson early in the fourth quarter, but even that was aided by a controversial personal foul call on the 49ers just a few plays earlier that extended the drive. In any event, he'll look to get back on track from a statistical standpoint next week at Arizona.

Wilson completed 22-of-37 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-14 win at Philadelphia. He also contributed 48 yards on the ground with another score.
Wilson looked comfortable the entire game, making plays in and out of the pocket. His 26-yard touchdown run on a read-option play early in the second quarter opened the scoring for Seattle, and he later added a pair of touchdown passes in the third quarter. He'll have a tougher test next week against the 49ers, although he was productive against them on Thanksgiving, in a 19-3 road win.

Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 19-3 win over the 49ers. He took four sacks and added 35 yards on seven carries.
For a third straight week, Wilson was solid but unspectacular in a difficult matchup, though this time he did the vast majority of his damage through the air. The highlight was a 63-yard completion to TE Tony Moeaki, with the play requiring an impressive escape by Wilson, followed by a long catch-and-run by the tight end. Wilson will face another tough defense in Philadelphia next week, but it's a matchup that should require him to attempt more than 22 passes.

Wilson completed 17-of-22 passes for 211 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Cardinals. He also had 10 carries for a game-high 73 yards.
Wilson was harassed practically the entire game, getting sacked a season-high seven times, but also made several big plays with his feet. The lack of passing stats over the last five games continues to hurt Wilson owners, but his rushing numbers have softened the blow. He'll have a tough matchup next week, facing the 49ers on Thanksgiving.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 71 yards on eight carries during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Wilson connected with seven different receivers, throwing touchdowns to wideout Doug Baldwin and tight end Tony Moeaki, who was active for the first time since signing with the Seahawks on Nov. 4. Wilson has passed for more than 205 yards just twice this season, though he continues to make up for it with his feet, including 178 rushing yards and a touchdown in the last two games. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against a Cardinals defense allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game this season but the third-most passing yards.

Wilson completed just 10-of-17 passes for 172 yards and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 38-17 win over the Giants, but came up huge as a runner, carrying the ball 14 times for 107 yards and a touchdown.
Other than a pretty 60-yard throw to Jermaine Kearse, Wilson really struggled as a passer Sunday. He was sensational as a runner, however, and his one-yard bootleg touchdown with 5:19 remaining closed the scoring for Seattle. It was Wilson's third 100-yard rushing game of the season, and he's already recorded four touchdowns on the ground, after running for just one score in 2013. While the rushing stats are great, Wilson is in a little bit of a funk as a passer, failing to go over 200 yards, while posting a terrible 1:3 TD:INT ratio in the last three games. He'll look to get back on track throwing the ball next week against a solid Chiefs' defense.

Wilson completed 17-of-35 passes for 179 yards, with no touchdowns or turnovers in Sunday's 30-24 win against Oakland. He also carried the ball eight times for 31 yards.
Not the type of fantasy game owners were looking for from Wilson, who has not thrown a touchdown pass in two of the last four contests. He also had a tough time finding his wide receivers, as Marshawn Lynch led the Seahawks in receiving, with five receptions for 76 yards. He'll look to rebound from a statistical standpoint next week against the Giants.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 199 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, while adding 35 rushing yards on six carries in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
Wilson has now failed to score multiple touchdowns and throw for 200 yards in two of the last three weeks, though the exception was his record performance last Sunday when he became the first quarterback in league history to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game. He spread the ball around against the Panthers, connecting with nine different receivers, with his lone touchdown coming on a 23-yard pass to tight end Luke Willson with 47 seconds left to put the Seahawks up for good. The absence of Percy Harvin doesn't seem to be making much of of an impact on Wilson's stat line, and he'll look to get back on track in Week 9 against the Raiders.

Wilson completed 23-of-36 passes for 313 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing seven times for 106 yards and another score during Sunday's 28-26 loss to the Rams.
With plenty of talk about how the Seahawks would respond after wideout Percy Harvin was traded to the Jets earlier this week, Wilson put on a show, setting a season-high with his 313 passing yards, a large chunk of which went to Doug Baldwin, who caught seven of 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. He has remarkably rushing for over 100 yards in two of the last three games, while scoring one rushing touchdown in each of those contests. While he may not usually do a lot with his arm, Wilson continues to show that he can do some serious damage while rushing the ball, something he'll likely continue doing in Week 8 against a Panthers defense that is allowing over 140 rushing yards per game this season, tied for the fifth-worst mark in the league.
