Russell Wilson QB SEA 4 Days

Wilson completed 17-of-25 passes for 202 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-21 loss at San Diego. He added two carries for 18 yards.

Wilson didn't play that badly, but Seattle barely had the ball, possessing it for just 18 minutes. Surprisingly, he targeted Percy Harvin just one time, instead going to Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin. Expect Wilson to put up bigger numbers next week at home against Denver.

Wilson completed 19-of-28 passes for 191 yards and two touchdown in Thursday's season-opening 36-16 win over the Packers. He added 29 yards on seven carries.

Wilson had four carries for 32 yards before taking a trio of knees to end the game. His first performance of the season was a strong one, though the limited volume -- a consistent issue in his young career -- prevented Wilson from putting together a huge fantasy day. Perhaps more encouraging for Wilson's owners than the quarterback's own strong stat line, Percy Harvin looked healthy and explosive, catching all seven of his targets for 59 yards, with another 41 yards on four carries. Meanwhile, the Seattle offensive line, an issue for much of last season, had an excellent night.

Wilson has connected on 30-of-39 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing nine times for 61 yards and three more scores during the Seahawks' three preseason games thus far.

Wilson and the Seahawks have shown no signs of a Super Bowl hangover through the preseason to date. The third-year quarterback has been a potent passer and runner, accounting for 12 yards per completion and five total touchdowns. Despite playing in Seattle's run-heavy offense, Wilson has blossomed into a steady QB1 option and could improve further if his passing volume is increased in Year 3.

Wilson completed 4-of-6 passes for 37 yards in Thursday's preseason opener against the Broncos.

Wilson added seven yards on one carry, and he led the Seahawks to seven points on two drives. With Percy Harvin healthy and the Seahawks' offensive line unlikely to suffer the slew of injuries it had last season, Wilson seems to have a bit more talent around him than he did last year. Of course, the Seahawks still figure to feature a run-heavy offense, and the defense will likely turn a few fourth quarters into little more than clock-killing contests. Wilson also has to deal with six games against NFC West defenses, all three of which he struggled against from a fantasy perspective in at least one of the two games last season. As you might expect, he looked perfectly fine in Thursday's game, although Seattle's pass protection was shaky.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed the Seahawks will remain committed to running the football heavily going forward.

The Seahawks have ranked 32nd and 31st in the NFL in pass attempts through Russell Wilson's first two seasons, limiting his yearly fantasy ceiling. "We want to run the football whenever we want to," said Carroll. "We are an absolutely committed running football team." Wilson could flirt with top-five quarterback numbers if Seattle's defense or running game took a step back, but we wouldn't anticipate either. He's a low-end QB1 in 2014 re-draft leagues.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck will earn $24-$25 million annually when they sign new contracts next year.

Colin Kaepernick's new deal is worth up to $21 million a year, but the details revealed a very team-friendly structure. The Niners will be able to cut him at any point if they're not happy with his performance. The agents for Wilson and Luck will have more leverage, and should therefore be able to negotiate more guarantees into the contracts. The $24-$25 million per year will actually be paid out and set a new record. Aaron Rodgers' $22 million average annual salary currently leads the league, followed by Matt Ryan ($20.7M), Joe Flacco ($20.1M), Drew Brees ($20M) and Peyton Manning ($19.2M).

FOX Sports confirms Russell Wilson won't "actively participate" in Texas Rangers spring training.

Any discerning fan already knew this, but apparently some didn't. The Rangers acquired Wilson's rights in last year's Rule 5 draft with the sole intention of using him as a mascot/motivational speaker. At one point, Wilson was pursuing a potential baseball career, but hung up his cleats after hitting .229/.354/.356 across 379 plate appearances in the low minor leagues.

Russell Wilson's agent confirmed the Super Bowl champ still plans to attend Texas Rangers camp this spring.

Seattle fans have nothing to worry about. Spring training runs from mid-February until March, so Wilson will not miss anything important, and the Rangers drafted him in December's Rule V draft simply to mentor some of their younger players. The young quarterback's baseball days are most likely behind him.

Russell Wilson checked out of Sunday's Super Bowl 48 stomping of the Broncos late in the fourth quarter after completing 18-of-25 throws for 206 yards and two touchdowns, with three rushes for 26 yards.

Tarvaris Jackson performed mop-up duty. The Seahawks don't ask Wilson to carry their offense on a week-to-week basis, and he didn't need to in the Super Bowl as Seattle's defense and special teams thoroughly dominated. Wilson was still highly efficient in third-down situations and avoided turnovers on a day where Seattle led 22-0 at the half, and didn't so much as allow a Denver score until the final play of the third quarter. Wilson has finished as a top-nine fantasy quarterback in each of his first two NFL seasons. He'll be worth a middle-round pick in 2014 re-drafts.
