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.

Russell Wilson completed 16-of-25 passes for 215 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions as the Seahawks outlasted San Francisco 23-17 in the NFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl XLVIII.

It was a game for the ages, albeit one without much to call home about on offense. Wilson struggled mightily in the face of San Francisco's rush, taking four sacks and committing an intentional-grounding penalty. He lost a fumble on the very first play of the game. Routinely flushed up the middle, Wilson backpedalled instead of stepping up in the pocket, resulting in a host of dangerous plays. He hit just enough big throws to send Seattle to New York, however, including a Houdini-scramble that resulted in a 51-yard completion to Doug Baldwin. Wilson has struggled of late, generating just five touchdowns versus four turnovers over his past six games. He'll have to be better for Seattle to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

Russell Wilson completed 9-of-18 passes for 103 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in Seattle's 23-15, Divisional Round win over the Saints.

Bottled up as a runner, Wilson managed just three scrambles for 16 yards. Put simply, Wilson wasn't good. He missed a number of makable short passes, and overthrew Golden Tate on a fourth-quarter deep ball. A 16-yard completion to Percy Harvin could have easily been an interception. Wilson is now averaging just 157.4 passing yards over his past five games, and has managed only four scores in the process. He'll have to be better if the Seahawks are to win next Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

The Seahawks rested Russell Wilson with ten minutes left in their Week 15 game against the Giants with the score 23-0.

The Seahawks have done this on several occasions in blowout wins this year. Wilson finished with 206 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception, and eight scrambles for 50 yards. Wilson narrowly missed another touchdown when Golden Tate's second-quarter score was negated by Tate accidentally stepping out of bounds on his route. The Giants' defense actually defended Wilson stoutly despite the lopsided score, harassing him particularly in the first half and drilling him on several occasions. He was picked off in the third quarter by FS/slot CB Antrel Rolle. Wilson still came away with above-average production. The Seahawks host the division rival Cardinals in Week 16, where Wilson will remain a top-ten QB1 play in fantasy football.
