Seahawks Beat: Extending QB Russell Wilson will be big priority

Monday, January 14, 2019, 10:08am

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Russell Wilson has just one year left on his contract before free agency. The Seahawks’ efforts to lock him up before the season begins eventually will take center stage, once they figure out what to do with Frank Clark, K.J. Wright and a few others.

To my way of thinking, if the Seahawks come to training camp in July with Wilson safely in fold, contentedly extended for three or four or five years, it will have been a productive offseason.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say, on the flip side the last thing the team needs is a disgruntled QB with an unsettled contract situation entering a promising 2019 campaign. But, Wilson would likely play out his final year without issue being the pro he is, however the Seahawks surely don't want to let Wilson become a free agent. The story compared the situation to former baseball player Alex Rodriguez, who got a mega-contract he couldn't refuse and left the Seattle Mariners.

Scouting Report

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.
