The Broncos' trade for Russell Wilson from the Seahawks became official Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
In one of the landmark transactions of the offseason, Denver finally landed its first big-name quarterback since Peyton Manning retired after winning Super Bowl 50. Wilson will have a bevy of pass catchers at his disposal, moat notably wide receivers Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, tight end Albert Okwuegbunam and running back Javonte Williams. Wilson is coming off a subpar season by his standards, as he missed the first games (three) of his career due to injury and the playoffs for just the second time in 10 pro campaigns. Still, he completed 65 percent of his passes, averaged 7.8 yards per attempt and had 25 touchdowns versus six interceptions in 14 appearances.

In the wake of the agreed upon deal that is slated to send Wilson from Seattle to Denver, the quarterback waived his no-trade clause and passed his physical with the Broncos on Tuesday night, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
As a result, Tuesday's blockbuster trade in which the Broncos are in line to send QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant, DL Shelby Harris, two first-round draft picks, two second-round picks and a 2022 fifth-round selection to the Seahawks in exchange for Wilson and a 2022 fourth-rounder, continues to move toward becoming official once the league's new league year begins March 16. The looming arrival of Wilson, who turns 34 in November, provides his new franchise with the signal-caller stability it has been seeking and in the process figures to boost the fantasy prospects of the team's core skill players, a unit that includes WRs Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler, TE Albert Okwuegbunam and RB Javonte Williams.

A deal is in place to send Wilson and a fourth-round draft pick from the Seahawks to the Broncos in exchange for quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks and a fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per Schefter, the blockbuster hinges on Wilson waiving his no-trade clause, an expected outcome. Additionally, the looming transaction can't be finalized until the new league year begins March 16. Adding Wilson to the mix will provide the Broncos offense with a huge lift and significantly bolsters the nucleus of an attack that also includes running back Javonte Williams as well as wideouts Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler.

Wilson hasn't demanded a trade from the Seahawks, but sources close to the quarterback indicate that he wants to explore other possible options to see if another team can put him in a better position to win another championship, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though Wilson said in one of his final press conferences of the season that he hopes to remain with Seattle in 2022, the quarterback sounds as though he's open to the possibility of being dealt if he can go to a team that has a more promising outlook than the Seahawks, who are coming off a 7-10 season. With that in mind, Wilson looks like he'll be following a script similar to last offseason, when he never formally requested a trade yet still had his agent provide the Seahawks' front office with a list of four teams he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause for. Mike Garofolo of NFL Network reported last weekend that at this stage, the Seahawks have no plans to trade Wilson, who has two years remaining on his contract.

Coach Pete Carroll said Monday he expects Wilson to remain the Seahawks' starting quarterback in the 2022 campaign, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
EDGE Analysis
Carroll responded, "[Wilson's] our quarterback," when asked about the standout veteran's future in Seattle. Of course, the Seahawks will have ample time to mull over any personnel decisions during the upcoming offseason, and there's plenty of precedence that says coach's comments in early January shouldn't exactly be considered a guarantee. A serious finger injury caused Wilson to miss three contests during the 2021 campaign, and upon returning he logged a seven-game slump with only an 8:4 TD:INT. However, Wilson looked more like himself during the final two games of the season, when he posted eight total touchdowns and just one interception.

Wilson completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 238 yards, three touchdowns and one interception while running for five yards and one touchdown against Arizona on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
It was a classic Russell Wilson box score: scoring often, including as a dual threat, while dealing with low usage volume. To produce four touchdowns on 30 snaps isn't a common feat for most players, but with Wilson it's an old story by now. It's not clear whether that story will continue in Seattle, nor whether Seattle will keep the same coaching staff if Wilson does return. The veteran quarterback's situation is one to monitor in the offseason.

Wilson completed 20 of 29 pass attempts for 236 yards and four touchdowns while running for 24 yards on six carries against Detroit on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
The Detroit defense is one of the weakest in the league, and this game proved to be a good setting for Wilson to reestablish some rapport with DK Metcalf (six catches for 63 yards and three touchdowns on nine targets). Wilson will need Metcalf to keep producing alongside Tyler Lockett (three catches for 24 yards and one touchdown on three targets Sunday) if the Seahawks offense is to maintain its momentum against a tough Arizona defense in Week 18.

Wilson completed 16 of 27 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears. He added 13 yards on two carries.
EDGE Analysis
On a snowy day in Seattle, Wilson mostly took a back seat to Rashaad Penny, but he was able to cap a couple drives with TD passes to DK Metcalf and Gerald Everett, the latter of which gave the Seahawks a 24-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter. However, the defense couldn't make it hold up. Wilson has thrown multiple touchdowns in four of the last five games, but with Seattle now officially eliminated from postseason contention, he has little to play for but personal milestones heading into a Week 17 clash with the Lions.

Wilson completed 17 of 31 pass attempts for 156 yards, no touchdowns and one interception while failing to record a rushing attempt in Tuesday's 20-10 loss to the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson had been looking like his pre-injury self over the last few weeks -- averages of 246 passing yards and two touchdowns over his last three games -- after rushing back too quickly from a broken finger in Week 10. The 32-year-old reverted to his poor passing form against a tough Rams defense, as evidenced by his third sub-60 percent completion rate game this season (zero total touchdowns in those contests). Fantasy managers should probably throw this performance out the window when evaluating Wilson for Week 16, as the tough matchup and lack of playmaker Tyler Lockett (illness) were factors in this dud. A bounce-back showing against the Bears on Sunday would not be surprising.
