2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Improving in each of his first three seasons in the league, Russell Wilson finally broke out as an elite fantasy option at the quarterback position this past season as he finished sixth with an impressive 23.4 fantasy points per game. Wilson did this despite the Seahawks rushing the ball as much and as successfully as any team in the league. Of course, a lot of the teamís rushing came from Wilson himself who became just the eighth quarterback to rush for 800 or more yards in a single season as he finished the year with 849 yards on the ground. His six rushing touchdowns led all quarterbacks in that department as well.

A 20-touchdown, seven-interception season with 3,475 yards is acceptable but not spectacular in todayís NFL. This was likely one reason why the team opted to make a huge offseason move by acquiring tight end Jimmy Graham from the New Orleans Saints. Graham, who has been among the elite at his position for quite a few seasons, brings new life to this Seattle passing game, particularly in the redzone where heís made 51 touchdown receptions during his five year career. This is still the Marshawn Lynch show close the goaline, but Grahamís jump ball skills add a new dimension to the offense which means we could see Wilsonís touchdown numbers inflate this season.

The biggest question regarding Wilson seems to be his ability to be productive as a pure pocket passer. Fortunately, that hasnít been much of a concern as of yet as heís stayed healthy thus far in his career while surprisingly avoiding big hits despite his propensity to run. Still, he is one hit away from a ďminorĒ knee, back, rib or other injury that could allow him to continue playing but might substantially limit his rushing numbers. Weíve seen this before from many run-heavy quarterbacks, so itís always a risk to select a player whose fantasy production is so dependent on him being fully healthy. Nevertheless, Wilsonís dual-threat ability gives him a high floor that few other quarterbacks can achieve. Heíll likely be a top four quarterback in most fantasy drafts and should produce numbers around that ADP so long as he stays healthy.

News From The Past 90 Days
Russell Wilson, Seahawks agree to deal
Four-year contract extension
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 31, 10:30 am

Seattle Seahawks
Quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $87.6 million, sources confirmed to ESPN. Wilson, 26, was scheduled to make $1.54 million this season, the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. If he had not agreed to the new contract, Wilson faced being tagged as the franchise player next February. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Wilson will reportedly get $60 million guaranteed over the deal and is signed through the 2019 season. This deal puts him amongst the highest paid at his position.


Seahawks re-sign backup QB Tarvaris Jackson
Terms of the contract werenít disclosed
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 9, 9:18 am

Seattle Seahawks
One of the subtly important questions that had been hanging over the Seahawks is answered. Tarvaris Jackson, Russell Wilsonís backup the past two seasons, re-signed with the Seahawks on Tuesday (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Let's just hope Russell Wilson stays healthy. Jackson has been shaky at best during his NFL career and hasn't played any meaningful snaps since 2011. He knows the offensive system in Seattle which allows him to keep a job in the league. He'll serve as Wilson's backup and contain no fantasy value.
