NFL FANTASY FOOTBALL

  Seattle Seahawks - Priority News
  News Statistics Roster  
Luke Willson - TE Posted 7/20/14 8:01pm et
Seattle Seahawks TE Luke Willson will be TE Zach Miller's backup this season, but he's likely to see increased playing time.
Huddle Up: Miller and Willson combined for only 53 catches last season, and there remain serious doubts the players' combined stats -- let alone individually -- would make for a fantasy-worthy TE considering the Seahawks' low-volume passing offense.

Bobby Wagner - LB Posted 7/16/14 12:34am et
Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner said Tuesday, July 15 he thinks the team has gotten way better this year, mainly because of how young they are.
Huddle Up: Youth is most definitely on the side of the defending champs as the 'Hawks' current two-deep depth chart features only 2 players (backup QB Tarvaris Jackson and reserve DT Kevin Williams) age 30 or older as of the current month.

Percy Harvin - WR Posted 7/15/14 3:07am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is penciled in to return kickoffs.
Huddle Up: Additional value for Harvin in leagues that reward return yards and touchdowns--at least for the six to eight games Harvin actually makes it to the field.

Marshawn Lynch - RB Posted 6/18/14 11:32am et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (ankle) attended the team's first day of minicamp Tuesday, June 17, but did not practice because of a sore ankle.
Huddle Up: So much for the retirement talk. Lynch may not be happy with his contract, but even being underpaid is better than not being paid at all.

Marshawn Lynch - RB Posted 6/14/14 7:17pm et
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to retire this offseason, according to Tennessee Titans SS Jordan Babineaux. Babineaux said Lynch has been working on his training separate from the team. The Seahawks aren't likely to give Lynch an extension because he's already paid like a top-five running back.
Huddle Up: It's the offseason, so if there's a little smoke expect it to be fanned into a raging inferno. Lynch isn't likely to retire with a couple well-paid seasons left on his contract, so no need to bump him down your cheat sheet.

Percy Harvin - WR Posted 6/12/14 11:29pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is happy to be taking part in voluntary workouts after missing most of last season recovering from hip surgery. Being able to take part in offseason activities is allowing Harvin to become fully integrated in the team's offense.
Huddle Up: Harvin definitely still has the all-around skills to contribute in a variety of ways, but will the recency of his lasting 2013 impression (his impressive Super Bowl showing) cause him to be over-drafted in a number of leagues?

Marshawn Lynch - RB Posted 6/11/14 11:51pm et
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to skip the team's mandatory minicamp next week, according to sources familiar with the team's thinking. Lynch skipped the team's visit to the White House in May, and reportedly hasn't appeared at any of the team's voluntary organized team activities (OTAs). He is thought to be unhappy with his contact, though it's not clear if that is the only football-related reason the running back is considering skipping or reporting late to minicamp.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks have hinted that their backfield may take on more of a committee approach this season, which may be one reason Lynch isn't showing up for things. It's a situation that bears watching, as Lynch is one of the few backs expected to consistently get 20-plus touches a game; if that plan is changing, his fantasy value will dip significantly.

Christine Michael - RB Posted 6/5/14 7:48pm et
Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darren Bevell said that the team is impressed by RB Christine Michael during offseason workouts. 'We are going to be running back by committee. We really like what Christine Michael is doing right now,' Bevell said.
Huddle Up: Until proven otherwise, Marshawn Lynch is the only Seattle RB worth fantasy consideration in most leagues, but Michael, a 2013 2nd-round pick who had only 18 rushes as a rookie, just might deliver on his preseason deep sleeper hype a year later than expected.

Percy Harvin - WR Posted 6/4/14 12:48am et
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is impressed with the speed of the team's receiving corps, especially thanks to the addition of WR Paul Richardson, who the team drafted this year. "Yeah, our receivers right now are as fast as it gets. You've got Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse is extremely fast too. Then you add Paul Richardson who you saw today went for that deep, deep ball that I threw to him. He's looking exceptional as well. So I think our receiver group is probably one of the faster in the league right now, based on who we have."
Huddle Up: No one is questioning the Seattle wideouts' play-making ability -- particularly if Harvin regains his health -- but will the 'Hawks throw enough to flush out the fantasy numbers after ranking second-to-last in the league this past season with 420 passing attempts and 26th overall with 3,236 yards? Even if they do, will the WRs all canniabalize off each other, keeping everyone's fantasy prospects down across the board? Bottom line: There are definitely some big unknowns to handicap when assessing the Seattle passing game.

Marshawn Lynch - RB Posted 5/29/14 7:57pm et
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is skipping organized team activities this week, which has given RB Christine Michael plenty of work. Michael had 'several impressive' runs in 11-on-11 drills Thursday, May 29.
Huddle Up: As we saw on Super Bowl Media Day, Lynch follows his own calendar, but that certainly hasn't seemed to affect the RB's production as he's had at least 1,416 yards from scrimmage and 12 TDs in each of his 3 seasons in Seattle.

Doug Baldwin - WR Posted 5/29/14 8:07pm et
The Seattle Seahawks agreed to a two-year contract extension with WR Doug Baldwin Thursday, May 29, according to a league source. Financial terms weren't given, but Baldwin was scheduled to make $2.2 million this year as a restricted free agent. His new deal will make him an unrestricted free agent after the 2016 season.
Huddle Up: Baldwin, coming off a 50-778-5 season a year ago, will resume his prominent role in the team's muddled WR mix which also includes Percy Harvin, Jermaine Kearse, Sidney Rice and draft picks Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood.

Kevin Norwood - WR Posted 5/28/14 11:27am et
The Seattle Seahawks signed fourth-round draft pick WR Kevin Norwood to a four-year deal Tuesday, May 27. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Norwood is an intriguing addition to the Seahawks, but as an unproven depth receiver on a run-first offense there isn't much fantasy value to be had.

Christine Michael - RB Posted 5/27/14 8:55pm et
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael's areas of improvement to work on include more refined blocking and mastery of the running scheme.
Huddle Up: The 2013 second-round pick appeared on more than a few preseason sleeper lists last summer but only racked up 18 rushes for 79 yards in his rookie season. His fantasy prospects remain somewhat bleak barring an injury to Marshawn Lynch or Robert Turbin.

Doug Baldwin - WR Posted 5/22/14 11:01pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin said that while he is still hoping for a contract extension, he has no plans to hold out. "If I did that it would not allow me to pursue my passion of playing football," Baldwin said Thursday on KJR radio in Seattle. "Sitting out does nothing for me, regardless of what people say about leverage."
Huddle Up: Percy Harvin's Super Bowl showing, the re-signing of Sidney Rice and the drafting of Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood have monopolized the team's off-season WR headlines, but don't forget that Baldwin (50-778-5) is the team's leading returning WR with Golden Tate's free-agency departure. Still, an extension for Baldwin might be hard to come by given the number of other key pieces the franchise has extended (CB Richard Sherman) and needs to extend (QB Russell Wilson).

Paul Richardson - WR Posted 5/21/14 12:30pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson posted on his official Twitter account Tuesday, May 20, that he has signed his rookie contract. While financial details were not divulged, Richardson is due to receive a $1.7 million signing bonus and the standard four-year deal is worth roughly $4.7 million overall.
Huddle Up: Richardson has an opportunity to crack the Seahawks' receiver rotation right away, and getting signed and into camp will help in that regard. That said, Seattle is a run-first team and the fantasy value of a depth receiver is limited at best.

Paul Richardson - WR Posted 5/18/14 6:17pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) sat out of practice Sunday, May 18, due to a sore shoulder. He's expected to be back by the end of the week.
Huddle Up: It's early of course but Richardson figures to be more of a project than most second-round picks and needs all the reps he can get if he hopes to have any kind of sizable role this season.

Richard Sherman - CB Posted 5/8/14 7:17pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman's new contract breaks down to cap hits of $3.676 million in 2014, $12.2 million in 2015, $14.77 million in 2016 and $13.2 million in 2017.
Huddle Up: Sherman got his payday -- the first of several salary moves the defending champs will need to make over the coming seasons in order to keep some key components. QB Russell Wilson, of course, will be the largest piece of the puzzle.

Kam Chancellor - S Posted 5/6/14 7:34pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (hip) underwent hip surgery this offseason. Chancellor is hopeful to be ready for the preseason, but nothing is certain.
Huddle Up: Something for IDP league GMs to keep an eye on as the physical SS finished second among all NFL safeties with 134 total tackles last season while notching a career-high 12 passes defensed.

Earl Thomas - S Posted 4/28/14 10:02pm et
Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas' four-year contract will pay him a base value of $40 million with $27.725 million guaranteed, according to a source. Thomas is the NFL's first safety to average $10 million per season and is the highest paid defensive back on a multi-year deal.
Huddle Up: Thomas is a key member of the Seattle secondary, but he may not be the highest-paid Seahawk defensive back for long; Richard Sherman is next up on the team's to-do list.

Sidney Rice - WR Posted 4/26/14 12:20am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (knee) said he hopes to be able to do some things during the team's minicamp in June. Rice also wants to be a full participant when training camp begins.
Huddle Up: Rice will likely return to a reduced role in Seattle as long as Percy Harvin remains healthy, but if he is to have any value on fantasy draft day he'll need to be on the field during training camp--preferably before.

Terrelle Pryor - QB Posted 4/22/14 3:39pm et
QB Terrelle Pryor acquired by the Seattle Seahawks in a trade with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, April 21, in exchange for a 2014 seventh-round draft pick, will compete with QBs Tarvaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels for the backup job to Russell Wilson. Pryor is scheduled to make $705,000 this year.
Huddle Up: Jackson is the more polished passer and has had 2 seasons in Pete Carroll's system, but Pryor is a bit underrated, especially considering that he only has 10 career starts. Pryor also is the better runner, having finished second to Cam Newton in 2013 with 576 ground yards.

Sidney Rice - WR Posted 4/14/14 11:12pm et
Free-agent WR Sidney Rice (knee) has been cleared to participate in football activities by Dr. James Andrews, according to a source. The Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers are believed to have some interest in Rice.
Huddle Up: Rice is among a handful of solid veteran wideouts still looking for a team this offseason. Now that he's healthy, he can start demonstrating his wares and land a club before offseason workouts ramp up.

Zach Miller - TE Posted 3/16/14 3:50pm et
Seattle Seahawks TE Zach Miller has agreed to restructure his contract and will remain with the team for the next two seasons.
Huddle Up: Miller will be back for at least a fourth season in Seattle after averaging 32 catches, 339 yards and 3 TDs in his first 3 years. However, fellow TEs Luke Willson and Anthony McCoy will cut into his targets.

Michael Bennett - DE Posted 3/6/14 10:47pm et
The Seattle Seahawks will not be re-signing impending free-agent DE Michael Bennett before free agency opens Tuesday, March 11, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bad news for the 'Hawks as the 28-year-old Bennett will be one of the hottest commodities on the open market following his career season (42 total tackles, 4 forced fumbles, 8.5 sacks)while playing both inside and outside on the D-line this past season.

Brandon Browner - CB Posted 3/5/14 12:02pm et
Free-agent CB Brandon Browner is likely to be suspended for some length to begin the 2014 season, as part of his reinstatement deal.
Huddle Up: Browner has missed a significant chunk of time due to multiple suspensions, and once he finds a team he'll likely miss a few more before returning to NFL action.

Brandon Browner - CB Posted 3/4/14 10:50pm et
Seattle Seahawks unrestricted free-agent CB Brandon Browner announced Tuesday, March 4, that he has been reinstated into the league after his suspension.
Huddle Up: Browner's "indefinite" suspension turned to cost him 2 regular- season contests and 3 postseason games, but he figures to resume his career in another uniform after the Seahawk D proved to be quite all right without him.

Sidney Rice - WR Posted 2/28/14 6:17pm et
The Seattle Seahawks officially released WR Sidney Rice and DE Red Bryant Friday, Feb. 28.
Huddle Up: Rice barely made a blip this season, missing much of the year with an injury. Bryant was a mainstay along the defensive line, though his role diminished somewhat this season. The move will save Seattle about $12 million in cap space.

Marshawn Lynch - RB Posted 2/20/14 5:04pm et
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving Thursday, Feb. 20, which will end his pending DUI case. He'll receive two years probation as part of the plea bargain, along with a fine determined by the judge.
Huddle Up: We'll see if the reduced charge is enough for Lynch to avoid NFL sanctions, although the RB has built a history of infractions.

Golden Tate - WR Posted 2/11/14 5:20pm et
The New York Jets could pursue Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Golden Tate this offseason, because general manager John Idzik is familiar with Tate from his time with the Seahawks.
Huddle Up: The Jets are searching far and wide for offensive playmaker help, and Tate will be an option if his pricetag falls out of the Seahawks' range. Fellow Seattle WR Sidney Rice could also be an option.

Sidney Rice - WR Posted 2/4/14 11:52pm et
The Seattle Seahawks likely will release WR Sidney Rice this offseason in order to create $7.3 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: With a (hopefully) healthy Percy Harvin and the emergence of Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Jermaine Kearse, the Seahawks simply don't have a need for Rice.
