Russell Wilson '100 percent' healthy?

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (ankle/ MCL) told the media that he feels fully healthy at OTAs. “I feel great, my body is 100 percent,” Wilson said via the Seahawks Wire. “Running fast, feeling strong, throwing the ball well and all that. It’s been a great offseason.”

Fantasy Impact

Wilson, who dealt with lingering ankle and MCL injuries for the duration of the 2016 season, told the press he feels "100 percent" healthy at OTAs. Although he did not miss any games last season, Wilson's production reflected his health not being fully intact. His mobility was clearly affected by the injuries as he posted career lows in rushing attempts (72), yards (259) and touchdowns (one). As a mobile quarterback, Wilson relies heavily on his ability to scramble and extend plays with his legs. If he can make a full recovery, Wilson could return to the high-end QB1 tier as a must-start option for the 2017 fantasy football campaign.

Russell Wilson mediocre in loss to Falcons

Russell Wilson threw for 225 yards and two TDs while rushing for 49 yards on six carries, but he also threw two interceptions in the loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson and the Seahawks were playing from behind for much of the game, and he wasn't able to come away with the win. It was encouraging to see him once again produce with his legs, and hopefully this is a sign of what owners can expect in 2017 when he's once again healthy.

Russell Wilson leads Seahawks to Wild Card win

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed 23-of-30 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's Wild Card win over the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson played a solid game Saturday throwing for 224 yards and two touchdowns en route to Wild Card Round win over the Lions. After shedding his knee brace that he donned since Week 3 of the regular season, Wilson appeared more mobile than he has been in recent memory. He will have to account for a huge statistical output in next week's Divisional Round matchup in Atlanta to keep up with the Falcons' high-octane passing attack.

Russell Wilson to shed knee brace

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Willson plans to shed his knee brace for Saturday's Wild Card matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson has been donning a knee brace since spraining his MCL in Week 3 and it has clearly affected his mobility on the field as reflected in his rushing statistics. He only ran for 259 yards on 72 attempts --both career lows -- and a touchdown in 2016. If Wilson does, in fact, abandon the knee brace, he could be more apt to take off and run more than he has at any point this season. And what better time to make this move than in a win or go home situation like the playoffs. Wilson is a solid DFS option Saturday versus the Lions.

Russell Wilson doesn't have to do much

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wasn't asked to do much in a 25 - 23 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Wilson completed 19 of 32 passes for 258 yards and one touchdown in about three quarters of work.

Fantasy Impact

Russell Wilson ends an up and down season with a game that is indicative of the troubles that the Seattle offense saw all season long. He saw pressure as a result of his offensive line, and missed some open receivers on what could have been chunk yardage plays. Wilson probably left a sour taste in owners' mouths, and he could turn into a bargain next year if he finds himself towards the back-end of the top 10 quarterbacks in ADP.
