Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson finally got the offense into the end-zone Thursday night during Seattle's 31-21 victory over Oakland. Wilson hit impact rookie Tyler Lockett for a 63 yard touchdown on his only pass attempt of the night. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It was good to see Russell Wilson find the end-zone in the preseason. The Seattle offense had been futile for the first three games, but they were able to break out in their fourth game. This should help put Wilson owners at ease heading into week 1 of the regular season.

According to Sheil Kapadia, "the Seahawks have traded wide receiver Kevin Norwood to the Carolina Panthers for an undisclosed conditional draft pick in 2017" (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: From the same ESPN report, the 2014 fourth-rounder out of Alabama played in 16% of Seattle's offensive snaps last year. While there are still other receiving weapons at Wilson's disposal, anybody expecting Norwood to make a second-year jump will have to hope it comes with Carolina.

Russell Wilson did nothing to silence his critics Saturday night, as the Seahawks starters only produced two field goals versus the San Diego Chargers. Wilson went 7-for-15 passing for 56 yards with four rushing attempts for 23 yards. The Seattle starting offense has not reached the end-zone once this preseason. (Source: Pro Football Talk )

Fantasy Impact: While it is still preseason, the fact that the starting offense could not get into the end-zone despite playing into the third quarter is troubling. The third preseason contest is usually the last serious tune-up before the season, and Wilson owners may have cause for concern if the offense sputters in the regular season. Wilson has proven his value in the past three seasons, and is considered a top-of-the-line fantasy QB1 play. Wilson is currently the Fantasy Pros' #3 ranked quarterback. With Marshawn Lynch barely playing this preseason and the precautionary resting of Russell Okung, the offensive hiccups could be nothing. Seattle's offense, health-wise, should be all systems go for Week 1.

2014's third best quarterback will see a boost in TDs with Jimmy Graham on board.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Sep 5th
I do not think a lot of people realized Wilson was the 3rd ranked fantasy QB in 2014, because he only threw for 3,475 yards and 20 touchdown passes. The stat people overlook are his 849 yards rushing and 6 rushing touchdowns. Wilson is one of the premier fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL, despite modest passing numbers. The addition of TE Jimmy Graham should help his passing touchdown numbers.

I still don't want to reach for Wilson due to how little he passes, but he's only getting better and the addition of Jimmy Graham is obviously huge.
Coach Esser | Sep 4th
Last year Wilson was a steal as the 12th/13th QB off the board. This year he will not come at that discount. I like Wilson, but even with the Seahawks adding Jimmy Graham I don't think Wilson can do much better than last year's numbers.

No. 3 fantasy QB in '14 is likely to dial it back a bit in the run game, but that should be offset by a big boost in Red Zone production, thanks to the addition of TE Jimmy Graham

The addition of Jimmy Graham indicates that Russell Wilson can improve on the number of passing TDs he threw last year.
WalterFootball | Sep 2nd
Wilson's upside depends on how much more he's allowed to throw the ball and if he can continue to put up similar rushing numbers to last year. Both of those aren't givens with the Seahawks' top-notch rushing offense and defense. I still love his upside with the addition of Jimmy Graham, but I think you should be able to get a discount for a possible decline in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

With Jimmy Graham now in Seattle, you HAVE to like Wilson a bit more if not a ton more.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 29th
Wilson needs to learn how to throw TD"s as well, but because he knows how to run the ball in the end-zone he is a threat. The major issue with Wilson is he is great for the Seahawks but leaves a bit to be desired as a fantasy QB.
