Russell Wilson, Seahawks strike $140 million extension

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson have agreed to terms on a four-year deal worth $140 million that includes a $65 million signing bonus late Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

Just ahead of Wilson's implied deadline, the Seahawks awarded their star quarterback with a lucrative four-year extension that will make him the NFL's highest-paid player. With his new deal, Wilson is tied to the Seahawks until 2023. While there were trade rumors looming to send Wilson packing, the Seahawks proved that they are committed to their quarterback, who has led Seattle to a pair of Super Bowls earlier in his carer, winning one. Included in the deal is $107 million in guaranteed money as well as a no-trade clause. With all things being considered, Wilson is due $157 million over the course of the next five years.

Russell Wilson gives April 15th deadline for extension talks

The Seattle Times reports Russell Wilson is giving the Seahawks a deadline of April 15th for extension talks.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson is in a contract year and presumably doesn't want to negotiate once the off-season program begins on the 15th. There's still a chance the two sides could work something out after that but it's clear Wilson is pushing for more of an immediate resolution.

Russell Wilson totals two touchdowns in Wild Card loss

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-27 passes for 233 yards and one touchdown while adding another 14 yards and a score on three carries in Saturday night's Wild Card loss to Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the loss, Wilson had an outstanding outing. Totaling two touchdowns with 233 passing and a few big down and distance conversions with his legs, Wilson was the lone reason why the Cowboys didn't blow the game open and it was as close as it was for Seattle. Wilson will look to reboot this offseason for another run in 2019.

Russell Wilson fails to light up the box score in Week 17

Russell Wilson completed 12-of-21 passes for 152 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Seattle's 27-24 Week 17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

The Seahawks clinched the number five seed in the NFC with the win. It was close, however, as Seattle didn't win the game until a last second field goal in regulation. Wilson finishes the year with a pristine 35/7 TD/INT ratio plus 376 rushing yards. Seattle will travel to Dallas for Wild Card Weekend this Saturday.

Russell Wilson throws three more TDs in win

Russell Wilson completed 18-of-29 pass attempts for 271 yards and three touchdowns in Week 16, adding eight carries for 57 yards on the ground.

Fantasy Impact

It was an MVP type performance from the Super Bowl winning quarterback. Wilson has now tied his career high in touchdown passes with 34, and he's doing it on minuscule volume this year. With the Seahawks having something to play for next week Wilson will once again be a QB1.
