2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

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.

Jul-03-15 Seahawks QB Russell Wilson says he would 'definitely consider' playing pro baseball in Seattle

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson once again said he would like to play Major League Baseball, however, this time the conversation was a bit more intriguing. While appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Kimmel asked Wilson if he would play both professional football and baseball if the Texas Rangers traded his rights to the Seattle Mariners. The close proximity would make the duel-sport attempt a real possibility, at least from a geographical standpoint. Wilson responded to the question saying, "I'd definitely consider it."

Fantasy Analysis:

If Wilson was in fact traded to the Mariners, the idea of Wilson playing two sports would be very interesting. Nonetheless, the likelihood of him playing pro baseball is very unlikely. Not only because being an NFL quarterback is a 12-month job, but he is not even considered an elite MLB prospect. If he didn't even play football, it's unlikely Wilson would be a pro baseball player. Of course, if he had dedicated his life to the sport, it's possible he would have developed his game. All the same, that is not the case and I wouldn't count on seeing Wilson on a baseball diamond in the near or distant future.
