Shark Bites

7:20pm EDT 10/15/21

The Seahawks placed QB Russell Wilson (finger) on IR. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle then has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest Wilson could return. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport recently called a Week 10 return the "best-case scenario" for Wilson. QB Geno Smith is in line to start the next 3 games vs. Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Jacksonville.

Speaking Wednesday, new Broncos QB Russell Wilson discussed how long he’d like to remain an NFL QB. “My goal is to play 10 or 12 more years and hopefully win three or four more Super Bowls. That’s the plan,” Wilson said via NBC Sports. “That’s the mindset. That’s why I came here, to finish my career here and hopefully finish on top as a champion. And do it multiple times.” Wilson turns 34 in November, so playing as long as he wants is a major long-shot. Still, the move to Denver — and his current mindset — looks favorable for his dynasty value.

The Broncos have acquired QB Russell Wilson from the Seahawks for what NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is calling a "massive haul" that includes "multiple" 1st-round picks, players and other picks. We'll see about the final compensation. ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that QB Drew Lock is part of the package heading to Seattle. Wilson leaves 1 of the league's best WR tandems in D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett but lands in a talented offense. Denver returns WR Jerry Jeudy for his 3rd season, extended WRs Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick last year, get KJ Hamler back from his ACL tear and sports Albert Okwuegbunam at TE. We'll see about the specific offensive plans of new HC Nathaniel Hackett, who arrived this offseason after 3 years as Packers OC. For now, Wilson seems appropriately valued at his QB12 ADP. Lock should get a chance at winning the 2022 starting gig in Seattle, though we'll see what else the team has planned at the position. Metcalf and Lockett necessarily get fantasy downgrades after opening their careers with 1 of the most efficient passers in NFL history. Stay tuned for updates as more details get released.

Update: Full details of the trade: Denver gets Wilson plus a 4th-round pick. Seattle gets QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant, DL Shelby Harris, 2 first-round picks, 2 second-round picks and a 5th-round pick.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Commanders made an offer to the Seahawks for QB Russell Wilson that included "multiple" 1st-round picks. Seattle reportedly rejected that, and talks don't seem to be ongoing. That tells us a couple of things, though: 1) Washington seems serious about upgrading at QB, and 2) The Seahawks just might be serious about keeping Wilson. For now, at least, we're drafting (and projecting) as though Wilson will remain in Seattle for 2022. We'll see how both situations develop.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) has been activated from IR. It's confirmation that he'll start Sunday's game vs. the Packers. Wilson said Thursday that his right middle finger is around 90% healed, so he carries a bit more risk than usual in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson admitted Thursday that his right middle finger still isn't back to 100%. "I feel great," Wilson said. "I feel really close. I'm not 100% yet, but I'm pretty dang close. I would say 90th percentile if not higher. I feel great. I've got great conviction about what I'm doing, how I'm doing it. My mindset is better than ever. I'm ready to roll and ready to go." Wilson said he's noticed the finger in practice this week but believes he can make every throw. He'll come with slightly elevated risk in his 1st game back vs. the Packers on Sunday.
