Russell Wilson shows up on Seahawks injury report, but he’s OK

Seattle Seahawks fans and fantasy owners should take a deep breath. Everything will be OK. Quarterback Russell Wilson made a rare appearance on the team’s injury list for Wednesday’s Week 8 practice. He was listed as having a knee injury, but he was listed as a full participant.

A full participant goes through all team drills, unlike a limited participant. Wilson might have tweaked something or just woken up feeling like something was not 100 percent right. Wilson or head coach Pete Carroll might say something about it before the end of the week, but I imagine they’ll say he’s fine.

Fantasy football analysis, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

Week 8 presents potentially Wilson’s best matchup of the year. The Seahawks travel to face an Atlanta Falcons team that has a miserable pass defense. It’s a road game for Seattle, so crazy things can happen, but it’s hard not to love this matchup. I can’t imagine projecting anybody with a higher fantasy point total this weekend.
