Russell Wilson had success in college with 'empty' sets and the Seattle Seahawks used the formation to great success last season.

According to ESPN Stats & Information data, Wilson averaged 10.3 passing yards per attempt when the Seahawks were in empty last year. 

"I think we've done a great job of that, really for a while now of being in empty," Wilson said. "Kind of reviewing at the halfway point last year, especially. We were like, 'That's something that we do really well and we want to be in that, it's a good thing for us.' Then obviously when Marshawn [Lynch] and [Thomas] Rawls went down, OK, let's capitalize on that even more and got the playmakers out in the flanks that can make those plays.

"We have so many guys that can do so many different things, and when you have that option, it makes it tough on the defense to try to figure out what we're doing. I've been in empty since I was a young kid myself, so I've played in it a lot -- NC State, even Wisconsin, we kind of changed it up there and went a little empty there. I like spreading it out."
