Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 16-of-25 passes for 215 yards, a TD and no interceptions in a 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Jan. 19 in the NFC Championship Game.
Huddle Up: The passing game was a concern for the Seahawks entering the contest, but while the stats weren't scintillating by fantasy standards, Wilson overcame a first-drive fumble, rallied the Seahawks from 10-0 and 17-10 deficits and topped 200 passing yards for the first time since Week 15. He now has now has 4 TDs and only one interception in 4 career postseason games.

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.
