Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Tops 200 yards in first half against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson completed 13 of 18 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 of preseason against the Vikings on Friday. He also rushed twice for one yard.

Wilson looked sharp playing the whole first half. He capped the opening drive with a one-yard touchdown pass to training-camp standout Kasen Williams and tossed a 22-yard score to running back Mike Davis on the first play after the two-minute warning. Wilson already looks in regular-season form, and he's taken only one sack in 23 dropbacks through two games. Left tackle George Fant suffered a season-ending torn ACL, which could impact Wilson. Fant isn't good, but he's presumably better than the backup, whoever that ends up being. It's something to watch, at least.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Seeing immediate benefits from improved diet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson overhauled his diet the past few months and has already gone from 225 pounds with 16 percent body fat to 214 pounds with 10 percent body fat, ESPN.com's Sheil Kapadia reports.

Listed at 5-foot-11, 215 pounds, Wilson was always able to maintain his quickness while playing with a stout frame that allowed him to stay healthy behind shaky offensive lines. The plan fell apart early last season when he suffered high-ankle and MCL sprains, which not only made it difficult for him to run or scramble, but also limited his cardio work and led to some unwanted weight gain. Wilson still played all 16 games and completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 7.8 yards per attempt, but he finished with career-low marks -- by a wide margin -- in rush attempts (72), rushing yards (259) and yards per carry (3.6). Coach Pete Carroll was excited to see his quarterback report to the team in top-notch shape this offseason, and while the offensive line remains a major concern, Wilson's improved health and conditioning should help revive the Seattle rushing attack.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Back in tip-top shape
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has made a full recovery from his slew of maladies last season and looks as good as ever moving around during practice, according to coach Pete Carroll, ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports.

Wilson didn't last long before suffering his first injury last season, as he surfaced from Week 1 with a high-ankle sprain, and later suffered a sprained MCL and strained pectoral over the course of the campaign. Because of those ailments, the usually mobile Wilson was noticeably unable to move around the way he normally does, which contributed toward a statistical drop-off. In fact, with no reliable running game or protection to speak of, Wilson accounted for 13 fewer passing touchdowns and threw three more interceptions than in 2015, when he also rushed for almost 300 more yards. Thanks to the time off since last season, Wilson has returned to the Seahawks in exquisite shape, which has coach Carroll excited about him potentially rediscovering to the best form of his career.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Picked off twice in divisional-round loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson completed 17 of 30 passes for 225 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons. He also gained 49 yards on six rushes and was sacked three times, including once for a safety.

Wilson and the Seahawks were lights-out to the open the game, putting together a 14-play, 89-yard drive that consumed 8:34 off the clock and culminated in a seven-yard scoring dart to Jimmy Graham. However, it was largely downhill from there, with an injury to right guard Germain Ifedi kick-starting a series of unfortunate events. Rookie Rees Odhiambo, who took over for Ifedi, inadvertently stepped on Wilson's foot with the Seahawks backed up to their seven-yard line after a penalty wiped out an 80-yard punt return by Devin Hester, leading to a safety. Wilson subsequently sandwiched fourth-quarter interceptions around a 31-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin, with the second pick coming with 2:15 remaining and sealing Seattle's fate. Wilson did lead the Seahawks in rushing on the afternoon, and his yardage total on the ground actually was the second highest he'd amassed all season. Despite the disappointing finish to the campaign, the Wisconsin product did set career highs in completions (353), attempts (546) and passing yardage (4,219) in 2016.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws for two touchdowns in wild-card victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilson completed 23 of 30 passes for 224 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 26-6 wild-card win over the Lions. He also lost three yards on three rushes.

Head coach Pete Carroll made good on his promise to feature Thomas Rawls heavily Saturday, but Wilson maximized his opportunities as well. He looked sharp while connecting with eight different pass-catchers, and had his usual rapport with Doug Baldwin in high gear, connecting with his favorite receiver on 11 occasions for a game-high 104 yards. Both of Wilson's touchdowns were a bit on the unorthodox side, with Paul Richardson making a contested one-handed grab for the ages on the first one, and Baldwin essentially stealing a throw originally intended for Jermaine Kearse on the second. The fifth-year pro looks to be in fine form for the postseason, and will need to be hitting on all cylinders for next week's divisional round showdown against the Falcons.
