Factoid: Russell Wilson

It's been a rough start for Russell Wilson and the Broncos. The opening Monday night loss at Seattle was a comedy of errors, and last week's 16-9 win over Houston was only marginally better. Denver has another primetime showcase this week, against a much better opponent (San Francisco).   more »

Mobility is key at quarterback, with the way it’s richly reward in most fantasy formats. But that quality is harder to grade, with players needing to evolve to doing more from the pocket – reading and reacting to defenses, and throwing with anticipation.   more »

Factoid: Transplant quarterbacks

Six times in the last two years, a quarterback on a new team has finished with top-20 numbers, and it’s a safe bet that we’re going to have a least a couple of those guys again this season.

Seattle head coach Peter Carroll described rookie running back KEN WALKER III as “a rocket” after his first day of the team’s three-day rookie minicamp. Carroll added that Walker “caught theMore ball really well”, something that he was not particularly known for in college last season at Michigan State.

The Seattle Seahawks reached an agreement on Thursday to re-sign veteran quarterback GENO SMITH to a one-year contract. The move marks the fourth straight year that Smith has signed with theMore Seahawks.
