2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-12-2014 by Brad Kruse

Russell Wilson enters his third year in 2014. He scored 323 fantasy points in each of his first two seasons. In those years, Seattle has run the ball more than they've thrown the ball. In part, this is because Wilson is also an effective scrambler in his own right. In 2012, Seattle threw the ball 43-percent of the time and in 2013 they threw the ball 46-percent of the time. Part of this is just part of strategy and minimizing risk, but as Wilson grows into the position, he will throw the ball more.

With a healthy Percy Harvin ready for Week 1, Seattle will be able to do more with their passing opportunities as well since he is by far the best receiver the team has had in years. Look for Seattle to be a little more balanced this year. Perhaps a 50-50 split could be coming or closer to it. In his short career, Wilson has proven himself to be accurate (63.5-percent completion rate) and effective (eight yards per attempt). His TD rate (6.5-percent) has also been noteworthy. He could cut down on his interceptions, but with more volume, his already QB1 fantasy point totals could elevate him to push into the Top 6 fantasy QBs in the league.

Apr-24-15 Seahawks QB Russell Wilson says that the Rangers want him to play for them

Last week Russell Wilson suggested that he had not given up on his dream of playing Major League Baseball. Most took a 'that's cute' approach but didn't think much of it. However, it continues to come up. In an interview with HBO's Bryant Gumbel, Gumbel brought up the point that Wilson only batted .227 while playing with the Rangers in the preseason. Wilson responded by saying, 'I wouldn't be worried about the statistics of it. I know I can play in the big leagues. With the work ethic and all that, I think I definitely could for sure. And that's why the Texas Rangers got my rights. And they want me to play. Jon Daniels, the G.M., wants me to play. We were talking about it the other day.'

Fantasy Analysis:

Regardless of what Wilson says, I still wouldn't think much of it. You can't be an NFL quarterback and play another sport as well. Now it today's game. He is a Super Bowl winning QB and is about to make a whole lot of money. It is very possible if not probable that his contract will stipulate that he cannot play baseball.
