Fantasy Impact:

“The Bears have prioritized making a run at Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson,” per Biggs. “His agent included the team on a list of four clubs Wilson would approve a trade to, although it hasn’t yet reached the point where he’s asked out.” The Cowboys, Saints and Raiders were also on the list. Russell Wilson is not actively being shopped, but the Seahawks are fielding calls for the franchise QB. It remains to be seen when or if Wilson will be traded, but the Bears will reportedly explore ways of trying to acquire him. Wilson had another excellent season in 2020, throwing for 4,212 yards and a 40:13 TD:INT ratio across 16 games. He added 513 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 83 attempts. Wilson is currently eighth among all QBs on the latest expert consensus draft rankings for 2021, but that number could rise or fall pending on where or if he’s traded. Stay tuned.
