Summary

The Seattle Seahawks have passed the ball more each year since drafting Russell Wilson. The growth in attempts hasn't impacted his output, Wilson has a career average of 8.1 yards per attempt after peaking at 8.3 for the 2015 season. He cracked 4,000 yards and threw for 34 touchdowns last season despite not throwing the ball more than 500 times. With his physical talent and an improving cast of weaponry around him, Wilson's potential is huge. We got a glimpse of his ceiling over the second half of the 2015 season when he threw 25 of his 34 touchdowns. The only real concern with Wilson moving forward is the state of his offensive line, but that has been a problem throughout his career. (May 21)

Seahawks | Trevone Boykin remains No. 2 for now (Thu Jul 21, 02:51 AM) - Seattle Seahawks rookie QB Trevone Boykin remains the team's primary backup to starter QB Russell Wilson, but beat writer Sheil Kapadia says don't be surprised to see the team add a veteran sometime in August.

Our View: Wilson has been very healthy so the risk is low, but we all know what happens when a top-shelf quarterback goes down to injury with an inexperienced player the only one left to take over. We expect someone else to show up unless Boykin REALLY impresses in camp. Stay tuned.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson elite with protection (Tue Jul 19, 03:36 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led all quarterbacks in Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) last season when he was adequately protected, according to Football Outsiders. DVOA measures efficiency by comparing success on every play to the league average based on situation and opponent. Wilson was solid under pressure, too, ranking fourth in DVOA among quarterbacks.

Our View: Wilson is great when adequately protected, but he's also good when facing five or more pass-rushers. In 2015 when facing five or more pass-rushers, Wilson had 14 passing TDs and only three interceptions. The touchdown mark was 3rd-best in the league in that category.
