Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/19/14 6:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Yeah, we all know the drill by now: Lynch shows up on the injury report every week and misses a practice or two but then goes out Sunday and delivers a regular dose of double-digit fantasy points.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/18/14 10:12am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Lynch takes plenty of practices off; no worries about his availability for this weekend's game.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 11/28/14 10:25am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has shown signs of regression during his second season on the job, so the team is holding off talks about a new contract or extension. The willingness to give Wilson a new deal will depend on how far Seattle gets in the postseason.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks would be lost without Wilson, especially if the plan is to kick Marshawn Lynch to the curb. The club cleared more than enough cap space by getting out from under the Percy Harvin deal, so look for them to lock up Wilson sooner rather than later--or regret dragging their feet for doing so.
Cooper Helfet - TEPosted 11/27/14 8:03pm ET
The Seattle Seahawks have declared TE Cooper Helfet, LB Allen Bradford, , CB Jeremy Lane, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, C Max Unger, TE Rashaun Allen, DL Travian Robertson inactive for Week 13.
Huddle Up: In case you missed it, Helfet -- Seattle's most productive TE of late -- will miss the Thanksgiving nightcap with an ankle injury. Luke Willson and Tony Moeaki will handle the TE duties against the Niners.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/26/14 12:34am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) was listed as a limited participant for the second straight day of practice Tuesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Lynch hasn't been near 100 percent all season, but he'll be out there Thursday night for the grudge match against the Niners, and his fantasy owners will be hoping for better results than his 15-39 rushing performance in Week 11.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/21/14 6:27pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: As always, Lynch will be out there Sunday for what figures to be a physical matchup against the division-leading Cardinals.
Bobby Wagner - LBPosted 11/18/14 12:19am ET
Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (toe) is expected to participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, and may be able to play in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Wagner, the 'Hawks' leading tackler in each of the last two seasons, hasn't played since Week 6 but will be back to bolster the team's defense for the stretch run.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/15/14 12:37am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf, rib) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 14, but is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Lynch was able to practice in full after sitting out both Wednesday and Thursday, and should play Sunday in K.C. Check The Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report before kickoff to make sure.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/14/14 12:13am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf, rib) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Lynch deserves a little rest anyway after his 4-TD fantasy explosion last week, but be worried if he's out of practice again Friday.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/14/14 2:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf, rib) sat out of practice Thursday, Nov. 14, with a rib injury in addition to his calf ailment. However, it remains to be seen if it's a significant injury heading into Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Lynch had 140 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in Week 10 after missing two practices last week.
Huddle Up: Of course, Lynch owners are going to need to see what he is -- or isn't -- able to do in practice later today and go from there.
Bobby Wagner - LBPosted 11/13/14 11:54pm ET
Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (toe) has been ruled out for Week 11 but has a chance to play in Week 12, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: IDP owners take note as Wagner will miss his fifth straight game Sunday.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 11/12/14 4:03pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Zach Miller (ankle) is going on Reserve/Injured and will miss the rest of the year.
Huddle Up: That will leave Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet on top of the Seattle TE depth chart, but the position remains an inconsistent part of the team's offense at best as that duo has combined for only 15 receptions for 226 yards and two scores this season, including a one-catch, 32-yard outing in Week 10.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/7/14 12:21am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch did not practice Thursday, Nov. 6, because of a calf injury.
Huddle Up: Lynch missed his second straight practice, but Thursday's absence has been attributed to a calf injury, which seems to be something new. Definitely check the RB's status on Friday to see if we have any more clarity.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 11/7/14 6:56pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable in Week 10 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: With 34 receptions for 409 yards, Baldwin easily ranks as Seattle's top receiver and his workload has stepped up noticeably since the team traded Percy Harvin, catching 18 passes for 222 yards and a TD over the last 3 games.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/6/14 6:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could receive more touches, because offense coordinator Darrell Bevell said Lynch is the best player on the team's offense. 'We want to use our good players,' Bevell said. 'And he's definitely, probably the best player on our offense and we want to get him the ball as many ways as we can.'
Huddle Up: The 'Hawks are already off to a good start in that regard with Lynch getting 26 touches (21 rushes, 5 receptions) in the Week 9 win over the Raiders. It was his second-highest single-game total of the season and it netted 143 total yards and 2 scores.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 10/28/14 11:53pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch does not have a rift between himself and the team, according to head coach Pete Carroll. A report Sunday, Oct. 26, said that the Seahawks had grown tired of Lynch's ways. 'At this point, I don't think it behooves us to try to respond to all these kinds of things,' Carroll said. 'Our players have told you how they feel about it, and we're in a really good place right now. It's just not worth it, but there's nothing to that.' Lynch has 111 carries for 482 yards this season.
Huddle Up: Lynch still ranks sixth among all fantasy backs with 99 points so far, but he's struggled mightily of late, failing to score a TD or top 71 total yards in each of the last 3 games. Maybe a Week 9 home date with the winless Raiders will help unleash Beast Mode.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 10/24/14 12:39am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury related) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 23, after being given the day off Wednesday.
Huddle Up: After 6 scores in his first 4 games, Lynch has been kept out of the end zone and under 62 total yards in each of his last 2 outings.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 10/22/14 12:07am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught four passes on five targets for 33 yards in Week 7. Richardson was targeted just once in the team's first five games.
Huddle Up: The second-round pick figures to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Percy Harvin trade, but it must also be noted that Seattle WRs have been notoriously tough to trust fantasy-wise given the team's run-first approach.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/20/14 9:16pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Zach Miller (ankle) will not be able to play in Week 8.
Huddle Up: While Miller will miss a fourth straight game, backup Luke Willson could return following a one-game absence. In the meantime, Cooper Helfet flashed production with 3 catches for 61 yards and a TD on 6 targets in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 10/17/14 12:01am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16, but he did not mention an injury when he spoke with reporters in the locker room.
Huddle Up: Red flags are flying in the Pacific Northwest with Harvin missing his second straight practice. See if he's able to get on the field in the always important Friday workout.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 10/17/14 6:17pm ET
The New York Jets acquired WR Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, Oct. 17, for a conditional draft pick.
Huddle Up: A stunning deal of sorts -- especially coming on a Friday 2 days before Seattle plays in St. Louis. Harvin has struggled as a receiver this season with 22 catches for 133 yards and no TDs this , but his 11-92-1 rushing numbers have bumped up his fantasy bottom line. He might get more work on the playmaker-needy Jets, but certainly his new surrounding cast is a downgrade. Meanwhile, it is a loss for the Seattle offense, which will now rely more on WRs Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Ricardo Lockette and TEs Zach Miller and Luke Willson.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 10/17/14 8:11pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin was traded by the Seattle Seahawks in part because he had anger issues while with the Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Reports say Seattle had been trying to trade Harvin for weeks now. It's a stunning turnaround for a player the Seahawks gave up first, third and seventh round picks to acquire. Seattle will save over $6 million in cap space this year by trading Harvin.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 10/17/14 11:22pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had a total QBR of 45.3 with former WR Percy Harvin on the field this season, and a QBR of 71.0 with him on the field.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks basically won a Super Bowl last year without Harvin but it's still a little surprising to see such a wide gap in Wilson's numbers. However, it shows fantasy owners shouldn't expect a decline in Wilson's production without Harvin.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 10/16/14 2:26pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch had 10 carries in Week 6, and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said he needs to do a better job of getting Lynch the ball. "I'm not a fantasy owner," Bevell said. " I don't care about anyone's (fantasy) points. But I do care about us winning the game. And Marshawn is a huge key for us winning the game. And I have to do a better job of giving him the ball."
Huddle Up: Good sign for Lynch owners as the last time the RB had this little usage (10 touches in Week 2), he hit season highs with 29 touches, 128 total yards and 2 TDs the ensuing week. Expect a big outing Sunday in St. Louis.
Bobby Wagner - LBPosted 10/15/14 3:54pm ET
Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner is expected to miss several weeks because of the turf toe he suffered in Week 7 but will not need surgery.
Huddle Up: Alert for IDP league owners as the Seahawks' leading tackler will be on the shelf. Undrafted rookie Brock Coyle is listed as Wagner's backup, but a more reasonable plan has K.J. Wright shifting inside from his WLB spot.
Kam Chancellor - SPosted 10/11/14 3:39pm ET
Seattle Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (ankle) will work out before the team's Week 6 game to see if he is able to play, according to head coach Pete Carroll. SS Jeron Johnson likely would start if Chancellor is not able to play.
Huddle Up: Seattle's defense has surprisingly been a fantasy disappointment this season. Things are likely to turnaround if Chancellor can't play against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 10/8/14 12:15am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has averaged 131 total yards and more than a touchdown per game in his last eight contests against NFC East opponents, and he has topped 100 total yards and scored at least one touchdown in all eight games. The Seahawks will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6.
Huddle Up: No matter what division, Lynch is on quite a roll, scoring a TD in every game this season and 8 straight overall, dating back through the 2013 postseason to Week 17. He's found the end zone 11 times in that span and has topped 100 total yards in 6 of the 8 games.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 10/7/14 12:50am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin had three touchdowns called back because of penalties Monday, Oct. 6. He finished the game with four catches for 27 yards and two carries for seven yards.
Huddle Up: Absolutely crushing night for Harvin's fantasy owners who were left with all of 3.4 points in standard-scoring formats. Chalk it up as excessive punishment from the fantasy gods, who more than made up for Harvin's 51-yard Week 2 scoring run in San Diego that shouldn't have counted with officials missing the WR stepping out of bounds en route to the end zone.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 10/7/14 12:50am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson set a Monday Night Football record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 122 Monday, Oct. 6. He also scored a touchdown rushing and threw for 201 yards and two scores.
Huddle Up: Wilson's performance was even better than the numbers showed as he almost single-handedly lifted the defending champs to a Monday night road win. Despite playing in only 4 games so far, Wilson now leads all NFL QBs with 209 rushing yards this season and has 8 TD passes and only 1 interception.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 10/7/14 12:50am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) did not start Monday, Oct. 6, because of a tight back. The issue went away after he was worked on by trainers.
Huddle Up: Lynch caused some early alarm by missing the game's opening series, but finished just fine, rushing for 72 yards on 17 carries and 45 receiving yards and a TD on 5 catches.
