QB - DEN
Expert NoteView More Notes
Russell Wilson's weapons/supporting cast overall are pretty even going from Seattle to Denver, but Nathaniel Hackett calling the shots is an upgrade over Pete Carroll.
Hackett's obviously had success with Aaron Rodgers that has translated into fantasy, so a top-five fantasy quarterback outcome is firmly in play with Wilson in 2022. After all, Wilson's long track record of efficient fantasy play is undeniable - he has finished among the top-six fantasy QBs five times since 2014.
I like his chances of making it seven in 2022. Because Wilson is still among the league's elite passers when healthy. Before the finger derailed his season, Russ led the NFL in yards per attempt (10.4), passer rating (133.6) and passer rating from a clean pocket (130.9) before Week 5. Wilson also finished the season on a high note, averaging over 24 fantasy points per game in his last three contests.
All in all, 2021 was a typical season for Wilson: peaks and valleys. He averaged 23 fantasy points per game from Weeks 1-4 and Weeks 16-18. In his six games post-injury, Wilson averaged an abysmal 13 fantasy points per game. Buy the inevitable 2022 dip on the future Hall of Fame quarterback in a new situation.
That combined with a plethora of weapons in Denver, makes it very plausible he sees similar immediate success that other quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford have had since changing teams late into their careers.

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.
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.
