Russell Wilson being traded to Denver Broncos

After weeks of negotiations, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos have agreed to terms for a deal involving Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter. Quarterback Drew Lock, defensive tackle Shelby Harris, and tight end Noah Fant are all headed from Denver to Seattle in the deal.

Fantasy Impact

The move instantly upgrades the fantasy values of wide receivers Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, and running back Javonte Williams. Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam also figures to benefit from not only the arrival of Wilson but the departure of Noah Fant. For the Seahawks, they acquire Lock, Fant, Harris, and multiple valuable assets but will likely be linked to quarterbacks in free agency, trades, and the NFL Draft in the coming weeks.

Russell Wilson 'Plan B' for Broncos, according to beat writer

With Aaron Rodgers re-upping with the Packers, 9News' Mike Klis said on Twitter "Plan B would be Russell Wilson" for the Broncos.

Klis added, "Failing that, Plan C is fluid. Watson eventually? Hurts? Vet 'bridge' QB/Lock with [first-round] QB?" Of course, it takes two to tangle regarding a potential Wilson trade to the Broncos. But Klis is one of the top reporters covering the team, so his tweet shouldn't be completely ignored. The Broncos are looking to upgrade the QB position after a year of Teddy Bridgewater. A potential QB upgrade is good news for all Broncos pass-catchers.

Wilson completed 259 of 400 pass attempts this season for 3,113 yards, 25 touchdowns, and six interceptions through 15 games. He also rushed for 183 yards and two additional touchdowns.
