2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
A relatively quiet second half of the 2020 season makes it easy to forget that Russell Wilson was the best quarterback in all of fantasy football through the first seven weeks of the season. Wilson threw for at least three touchdowns in all but one of the Seahawks' first eight games and that incredible start allowed him to finish as a top five fantasy QB for the year even though he surpassed two touchdown passes in just one of the Seahawks' final nine games.

While there is reason to have some concern about Wilson's second half, there's some hope to be had when you consider that the team prioritized the passing game this April when they used their only draft picks in the first three rounds on wide receiver D'Wayne Eskridge. Say what you will about Eskridge as a prospect, but the point is that the Seahawks seemed to clearly identify that they needed to get deeper at pass catcher even though they had one of the league's top duos in 2020 with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

It's hard to believe that Pete Carroll will ever truly allow the Seahawks to maintain a modern, pass-happy offensive approach for an entire season, but Wilson's efficiency numbers are truly other worldly so he's been able to perform as a solid QB1 for fantasy even in years when his pass attempts have been relatively low. We do have to expect that his rushing totals will dwindle down as he nears his mid-30s but Wilson did finish the 2020 season with 513 rushing yards, which was a good step up from what he had in both 2019 (376 rushing yards) and 2020 (342 rushing yards).

For Wilson to finish as a top five QB again this season, he will need to continue to be both a plus-contributor in the rushing game while also maintaining his place as one of the league's most highly efficient passers, both of which he has done throughout his career. A boost up in pass attempts and we could be talking about Wilson competing for the crown of fantasy football's highest scorer this season. Wilson is one of the safest quarterbacks on the board once again.

News From The Past 90 Days
Seahawks rule out Chris Carson for Week 6
Neck injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 15, 4:01 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks ruled out QB Russell Wilson and RB Chris Carson for Sunday night in Pittsburgh. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carson missed Week 5 with a neck injury and will sit again this week. That means more Alex Collins as the lead back. he handled 17 touches last week against the Rams. DeeJay Dallas should fill in as a change of pace back.


Injury Russell Wilson possibly out 6-8 weeks
Ruptured middle-finger tendon
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 8, 6:11 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Sources: Seahawks are bracing for Russell Wilson to miss at least a month and possibly 6-8 weeks with his ruptured middle-finger tendon that likely requires surgery. Seattle thinking about Wilson’s long-term health. Barring an unexpectedly swift recovery, it’s Geno Smith’s show. (Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: In case you haven't heard, Wilson hasn't missed a game in his pro career which began in 2012. The Seahawks will turn to Geno for at least a month. Seattle does have a bye in Week 9 so we can hold out hope for a quick recovery and have Russ back in Week 10 against the Packers.


Injury Russell Wilson injures finger on TNF
HC: QB's status for Week 6 unclear
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 7, 11:55 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll called it a bad sprain for Russell Wilson’s finger. Said it’s too early to tell what his availability will look like. They knew they needed to throw it to catch up and Wilson couldn’t throw, Carroll said. (ESPN - Brady Henderson)

FFToday's Take: The good news is that Wilson briefly returned to the game and tried to work through his injury on the sideline for most of the fourth quarter. However, he figures to deal with a fair amount of swelling if he is in fact dealing with a sprain. Wilson's history suggests he'll be ready to go against the Steelers in Week 6, but time will tell if this is a multi-week injury. If Wilson can't suit up for the first time in his pro career, Seattle will turn to Geno Smith, who accounted for himself nicely after coming on in relief of Wilson in Week 5 against the Rams.
