Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was 22-of-30 for 310 yards, 3 TDs and a team-high 47 rushing yards on 8 carries Monday, Dec. 2 in a 34-7 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The Wilson vs. Drew Brees showdown was all Wilson as he recorded his first 300- yard passing game since the season opener. He has, though, thrown for 2 or more TDs in 6 straight games and only has 2 interceptions over that span. He appears to be peaking just in time for the fantasy playoffs but does have a rugged Week 14 road test against the rival 49ers.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-29 passes for 235 yards, 3 TDs in a 34-22 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Wilson's up-and-down season hit another summit Thursday night as he hit a career high for TD passes in a road game. On the down side, though, Wilson lost a pair of fumbles and rushed for 29 yards after totalling at least 61 in each of his past 3 games.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said QB Russell Wilson is a million miles ahead of where he was last year. 'He threw a couple of balls today, things that we talked about over the offseason that he'd like to take a shot at, and he did it today just to see what would happen with full awareness of why he was doing it,' Carroll said.
Huddle Up: Wilson wound up 11th among all fantasy QBs last season with 333 fantasy points (Huddle Performance scoring). The total received a big boost from Wilson's 489 rushing yards -- third among QBs -- and 4 TDs. Expect Wilson's passing numbers (3,118 yards, 26 TDs) to go up and his rushing figures to dip as he becomes more comfortable as a passer this season.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he believes QB Russell Wilson could have a breakout season in 2013. 'I think he's going to really do well this year. He's going to bust out and will benefit tremendously from his first year. It may be hard to imagine he's going to get any better, but I think he's going to get a lot better, being he was a first year starter, first time in the league,' Carroll said.
Huddle Up: While Wilson was rather impressive, tying the rookie single-season record with 26 TD tosses, challenging RGIII for offensive rookie of the year honors and finishing 11th among all fantasy QBs, there is some definite room for improvement, especially when you consider he didn't record a single 300-yard passing game all season.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, contrary to an earlier report, did not ask the team to rework his rookie contract. "I speak for myself. I never demanded or asked for a restructured contract," Wilson said.
Huddle Up: The CBA pretty much ties the hands of both Wilson and the Seahawks when it comes to his contract, so unless they wanted to cut him--and expose him to waivers--and then re-sign him he'll have to play for his existing deal for the first three years. By that time the Seahawks should be more than ready to back up the Brinks truck to Wilson's front door.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will be added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster for the 2013 Pro Bowl in place of Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (shoulder).
Huddle Up: Even though it took cancellations by Aaron Rodgers and Ryan for Wilson to get to Hawaii, it's an honor well deserved for the rookie, who was one of the top QBs in the league over the second half of the season.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 385 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game, which set the franchise record for passing yards in a playoff game.
Huddle Up: Rookie or not, Wilson emerged as one of the league's most dynamic QBs over the second half of the season. Still skeptical? Compare this stat with any QB: Wilson had 24 combined TDs and only 3 interceptions over his final 10 games, including the postseason.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been named NFC Offensive Rookie of the Month for December.
Huddle Up: This might not be the only rookie honor Wilson nabs this month as the Seahawks' QB could snare the NFL season honor after leading all first-year QBs with 30 total TDs, including a rookie-record 26 passing.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson tossed his 26th touchdown pass in the Week 17 game against the St. Louis Rams. Wilson tied the NFL rookie record held by QB Peyton Manning, then of the Indianapolis Colts.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson passed for one score, and ran for three others, in the Week 15 win against the Buffalo Bills. He is the first QB in NFL history to run for three scores in the first half of a game, and the first QB since former Minnesota Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper to run for three scores in any half. Wilson is the first Seahawks QB to run for three scores in a single game.
Huddle Up: Wilson entered the game with 310 rushing yards and no scores, but took care of that early with his 3 first-half TDs. Wilson's growth into a formidable QB and fantasy force has been just short of stunning, and he's now accounted for at least 2 passing and/or rushing TDs in 6 of the past 7 games.
