The one-year deal Seattle gave WR Brandon Marshall in May includes only $90,000 guaranteed, which is reflective of his age (34) and uncertain health as he comes off surgeries on his ankle and toe. The Seahawks' ideal scenario would have the 6-foot-5 Marshall getting back to full speed before the season and giving Russell Wilson the big target he lost when Jimmy Graham left in free agency. But if Marshall isn't progressing as well as hoped and/or if the Seahawks decide there's more value in keeping a younger receiver instead, they could move on relatively painlessly before the season begins.
This would only further solidify Doug Baldwin as a high-floor WR option in the late-second/early-third round of fantasy drafts with fellow WR Tyler Lockett a trendy sleeper in the double-digit rounds.

Russell Wilson was a fantasy stud in 2017, leading the NFL in touchdown passes with 34 (tying his career-high) and he also threw a career-high 553 passes. The Seahawks are all in with Wilson and the passing game. Wilson was also the second-ranked quarterback in rushing yards last season and that total (586) was the second-highest of his career. Wilson is entering his prime at age 29 and will continue to put up big numbers this season.
Sometimes it seemed Wilson had to carry the offense too much. This is a concern and we might have seen some fatigue at times. Lack of a running game was also an issue which put pressure on Wilson. It could struggle again. His completion percentage wasn't bad in 2017, but it was the lowest of his career. Tight end is a concern as Ed Dickson is the No. 1 option going into training camp.
2018 Bottom Line
4for4 was right on with Wilson in 2017, and he is projected to be the third quarterback taken this season (after Aaron Rodgers and Deshaun Watson). The question is when to take him. Unless your league has some crazy rules that favor quarterbacks, the first one shouldn't go until the third round. Wilson has an ADP of 50, but if you really want him, you probably have to grab him in the third or fourth round. He will be worth it as far as filling your quarterback position, so we can't say don't take him too early.
