Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 2/8/16 9:05am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch sent a tweet Sunday, Feb. 7, indicating that he plans to retire. The tweet contained two fingers up with a picture of Lynch's green cleats hanging.
Huddle Up: Typical Beast Mode to use no words in his apparent retirement notice. Lynch's retirement would open the door in Seattle for Thomas Rawls to become a top-tier fantasy back.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 2/7/16 1:22pm ET
According to an ESPN report Sunday, Feb. 7, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is telling people close to him he is planning to retire this offseason.
Huddle Up: Of course, we've heard this for a few seasons now, but the numbers -- he turns 30 in April, he had only 417 yards in seven games and, most importantly, would a count a league-RB-high $11.5 million against the Seattle cap if he plays this season -- and the emergence of rookie RB Thomas Rawls this past season seem to indicate that this indeed might be the end for Lynch.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/22/16 1:46pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is leaning towards retirement, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.
Huddle Up: We've heard this before about the soon-to-be 30-year-old RB, but the Seahawks seemingly are better prepared than ever to move on following rookie Thomas Rawls' breakout campaign this past season.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/22/16 10:17pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) will return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.
Huddle Up: The 'Hawks got 11 games out of Graham after making a sizable investment in the tight end, so no surprise here. The real question is how many games he might miss to start the 2016 season after tearing his patellar tendon.
Jermaine Kearse - WRPosted 1/21/16 9:59am ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse said he won't offer the team a hometown discount. 'I love my hometown, but I've put in too much hard work to give a discount,' Kearse said via text message. 'My number one priority is to take care of my family's future, so I will consider all opportunities.'
Huddle Up: With the breakout of Doug Baldwin and rookie Tyler Lockett coming off a strong first season--not to mention plenty of other Seahawks looking to get paid as well--Kearse may be forced to choose between a bigger contract elsewhere and sticking in Seattle at a reduced price. And from the above statements, sounds like if the money is right he'll follow it out of town.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/19/16 11:20am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's future with the team is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Lynch is high mileage, high maintenance and high priced. If the Seahawks trust Thomas Rawls to come back healthy, they'll move on from Beast Mode in the offseason.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 1/19/16 11:20am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) said he will be out of his cast in the near future and will be ready for the 2016 season.
Huddle Up: Rawls could walk out of his cast and into the starting gig for the Seahawks, who are likely to cut ties with Marshawn Lynch this offseason. Rawls was a fantasy stud when given the opportunity and would be a top-10 fantasy running back if handed the keys to the Seattle backfield.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/17/16 12:33pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) will play in the NFC divisional round game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who added that he will continue to monitor his injury. Meanwhile, the Seahawks declared RB Bryce Brown, DL A.J. Francis, OG Mark Glowinski, LB Eric Pinkins, CB Tye Smith, DE Kristjan Sokoli and FB Will Tukuafu inactive for the contest.
Huddle Up: Lynch will play for the first time since Week 10, and should receive the majority of the team's carries as long he looks good and holds up early. Christine Michael and Fred Jackson also will be mixed in.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/17/16 10:32pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 20 yards on six carries and added two catches for 15 yards in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Returning from a two-month absence, Lynch had six of the team's eight RB carries and was victimized by game flow more than anything as Seattle quickly fell behind 14-0 and trailed 31-0 at the half.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/15/16 11:39am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) was asked by Kenny Mayne of ESPN how he was doing, and Lynch replied via text: 'I'm ready.'
Huddle Up: We'll have a better idea if Lynch is playing if he actually makes it aboard the team's flight this week, but if he does, the 29-year-old back should have fairly fresh legs having been out since Week 10 of the regular season.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/15/16 7:14pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is listed as probable for the divisional matchup with the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17, and head coach Pete Carroll said there's a 'really good chance' that Lynch plays.
Huddle Up: Even more informative, Lynch actually is travelling to Charlotte for the game after being a full-practice participant all week and should play for the first time since Week 10. He could wind up getting a lot of work as well depending on the game flow and his effectiveness and health early.
Luke Willson - TEPosted 1/15/16 10:27pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Luke Willson (concussion) practiced in full the entire week and is probable to face the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round Sunday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Willson figures to play for the first time since getting injured in Week 16, and will give Russell Wilson another middle-of-the-field option.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/14/16 10:30pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's (abdomen) status for the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers remains uncertain, even though he put in another full practice Thursday, Jan. 14. Seattle coaches have been encouraged by Lynch's progress this week, though.
Huddle Up: Of course, Lynch put in a full practice week a week ago, and wound up being a day-before-the-game scratch so pay attention over the next 24-36 hours.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/12/16 9:18am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) didn't have a setback last week, but head coach Pete Carroll said Lynch could be a game-time decision in the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17. 'We've got to go one day at a time, see what happens, see how it goes, get him out there practicing and see what that means,' Carroll said. 'We don't know yet.'
Huddle Up: Lynch pulled himself off the table late last week, saying he just didn't feel like he could go. Maybe he'll feel better this week in a warmer climate?
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/10/16 9:14pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin caught five passes for 42 yards and one touchdown during the wild-card playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Sure enough, Baldwin accounted for the lone TD of the game -- scoring on a 3-yard reception in the fourth quarter -- and now has had 12 scoring grabs over his last seven contests. He'll likely draw Panthers' All-Pro CB Josh Norman in the divisional round next Sunday, though.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/9/16 8:51pm ET
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) has been ruled out for the NFC wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: After positive words this week, Lynch was suspiciously deemed out late on Friday. The rushing load will fall to Bryce Brown and Christine Michael.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/8/16 12:22am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) and WR Tyler Lockett (hip) participated fully in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Both would appear to be on track to play Sunday in Minnesota, but Lynch bears watching in particular as the 29-year-old back hasn't played since Nov. 15 (Week 10) and we're left to wonder how heavy of a workload he'll be able to handle.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/8/16 3:54pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson doesn't plan to use a glove on his throwing hand for the wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10, where the temperature calls for a high of 4 degrees. He will instead have hand warmers in his waist pocket to heat him up between plays. Wilson also thinks the size of his hands (10 1/4 inches) will help. Wilson has one game outdoor in below-freezing temperatures, a 24-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last year when he was 20-for-32 for 178 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran eight times for 71 yards.
Huddle Up: Well, nothing else has worked so maybe the bitter cold will slow down Wilson, who has thrown 24 TD passes and only one interception over his last seven games. He threw for 274 yards, three TDs and ran for another score in Seattle's 38-7 beatdown of the Vikings in Week 13.
Luke Willson - TEPosted 1/8/16 11:29pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Luke Willson (concussion) has been ruled out of the wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Willson will miss a second straight game, meaning Chase Coffman and Cooper Helfet will serve as Seattle's main tight ends. Continue not to expect much out of the position.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/8/16 11:29pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for the wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 10, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Lynch took every practice snap this week.
Huddle Up: Check the pre-game inactives list Sunday, but expect Lynch to go and get a decent workload if he looks good early.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/7/16 9:47am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) will be a full participant in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: One more sign that Lynch will return to action--and more importantly a primary role in the Seattle backfield--on Wild Card Weekend.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/5/16 9:12am ET
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is 'in the program' and should be ready to go, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Jan. 4. The team is hopeful Lynch will be able to return for the NFC Wild Card Game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Lynch may have some rust to shake off so he may not be in full-on 30-carry "Beast Mode", but all indications are he'll see at least a chunk of the Seahawks' backfield touches in their playoff opener.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 1/3/16 10:31pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael had 17 carries for 102 yards in a 36-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Michael took over as the lead back once Thomas Rawls went down. He'll return next season and compete for a spot behind Marshawn Lynch in Seattle's backfield.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/2/16 3:53pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is expected to participate in practice Monday, Jan. 4, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are hoping to get Lynch back at some point during the playoffs if they make an extended run. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Lynch never made it back for the end of the regular season. His value will take a dip next season with the emergence of Thomas Rawls.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/30/15 4:25pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) is day-to-day but will not play this week, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks hope to have Beast Mode ready for wild-card weekend, meaning we'll get another mish-mash of Christine Michael, Bryce Brown and Fred Jackson on Sunday against the Cards.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 12/28/15 12:03am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin caught eight passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in a 23-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 16, becoming just the fourth player to catch 11 touchdowns in a five-game span.
Huddle Up: Baldwin's final month of the season is the stuff of fantasy legend. He scored 11 touchdowns in his final five games to help many owners to a fantasy title. Baldwin will become a free agent at the end of the season.
Luke Willson - TEPosted 12/28/15 10:09am ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Luke Willson (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 16 game against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks got beat up in more ways than one on Sunday. They're already in the playoffs, but another loss sends them to Green Bay or Minnesota instead of DC for their first-round game.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/28/15 7:58pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) will work out both Monday, Dec. 28, and Tuesday, Dec. 29, before he can be cleared to practice this week.
Huddle Up: Lynch is badly needed with the Seahawks losing Thomas Rawls in Week 14, but Seattle may wait an extra week on Lynch having already clinched a playoff berth.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 12/25/15 3:46pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Dec. 27, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Baldwin owners hoping to keep riding one of the great recent fantasy-WR runs of recent seasons are in a tough spot this week as the Seahawks have a late-afternoon kickoff.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 12/24/15 7:42pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: That's two missed practices in two days for the red-hot receiver, but coach Pete Carroll hopes he'll at least be able to step up his participation level Friday and play Sunday. A game-time decision, though, likely is forthcoming.
