The Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson have reached agreement on a four-year, $140 million extension that includes a $65 million signing bonus and makes the quarterback the highest-paid player in the NFL, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday morning.
There aren't big short-term fantasy implications here, but Wilson's contract won't be a distraction in 2019.
SEA QB Russell Wilson - Week 18 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 18 at Dallas Cowboys
Russell Wilson has been all over the map the second half of the season. The one thing to note is he has not had big passing games although ones that have been fantasy friendly. The success of the running game might be a big part of that.
Seattle faces the Cowboys who are 10th in aFPA to quarterbacks. We don't expect much difference in the playoffs. Wilson will be around the 200-250 mark with a score or two, but the running game will rule for the Seahawks. Wilson won't hurt you but there are several better options for Week 18.
