Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 9/18/14 11:01pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: Beast Mode was back in action after sitting out Wednesday -- a good sign he'll be up for a full workload Sunday after getting only 10 touches in the Week 2 loss in San Diego.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 9/15/14 11:11pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) is dealing with a back issue, and head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Sept. 15, that the issue is 'ongoing.' Lynch will be monitored. His back tightened up in the Week 2 game against the San Diego Chargers.
Huddle Up: This might help explain why Lynch only had 10 touches Sunday, and it's certainly something to monitor throughout the week.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 9/11/14 2:22pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) ran Tuesday, Sept. 9, and will try to run again Thursday, Sept. 11, in order to test his injured hamstring. Head coach Pete Carroll said Michael has an outside chance to play Week 2 but should be ready to play Week 3.
Huddle Up: Just a depth chart update from the Pacific Northwest. In the meantime, Robert Turbin is the No. 2 back behind Marshawn Lynch if you're looking to keep yourself insured.
Earl Thomas - SPosted 9/11/14 2:22pm ET
Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas will no longer return punts for the team, and he'll be replaced by WR Bryan Walters. Head coach Pete Carroll said Thomas could remain in the mix if the team needs him, but Walters and a mix of others will be the primary returners.
Huddle Up: Thank-you cards are forthcoming from Thomas' IDP owners as the All-Pro safety was one hard hit or freak mishap away from sustaining a totally unnecessary injury.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 9/5/14 2:11pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin caught seven passes for 59 yards and also carried the ball four times for 41 rushing yards, and he returned three kickoffs for a total of 60 yards. 'They can't stop him,' said LB Bobby Wagner. 'They can't tackle him. He's too fast to catch him. He's just a great player when he's healthy.'
Huddle Up: The only thing Harvin didn't do was find a way into the end zone, but his all-around performance reiterated that he's a must-fantasy start when he's expected to start. Period.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 9/3/14 5:37pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3, and was ruled out of the team's Week 1 game.
Huddle Up: As of right now, Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin and FB Derrick Coleman are the only backs listed on the Seattle depth chart for Thursday night's NFL opener.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 9/2/14 7:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: Michael has been battling the hammy issue for a week or so, and it looks like Robert Turbin will be the team's No. 2 back in the Thursday night opener.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 8/27/14 5:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is dealing with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Michael, who leads the Hawks with 145 total yards and 3 TDs this preseason, will not play in Thursday night's exhibition finale, and it's still a toss-up as to who really is Marshawn Lynch's true handcuff.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 8/27/14 10:45pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) has been ruled out for the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Michael ends the preseason behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin on Seattle's RB depth chart. If Lynch were to go down, Turbin and Michael would likely both get touches but Turbin would get first crack as the early-down back.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 8/26/14 10:08am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin said he feels as well as he has since his college days. 'I definitely feel a lot better,' Harvin said. 'I've got a lot more motion than I'm used to having. I can do a lot more cuts and just a lot of different motions that I wasn't able to do before.'
Huddle Up: We've seen, albeit briefly, what a healthy Harvin can do. If he's able to stay on the field for a full 16 games he'll outperform whatever his draft position is; the question is, how can a guy who plays as hard as he does with the injury track record he has manage to avoid injury?
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 8/14/14 2:15pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has been cleared of any involvement in an assault and property damage accusation, the Washington police department said Thursday, Aug. 14. 'The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in this incident in any way,' the department said in a statement. 'The case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.'
Huddle Up: Good news for Lynch's fantasy owners and the defending champs, who can resume their focus on getting ready for the Sept. 4 NFL season opener.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 8/12/14 4:24pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (undisclosed) returned to practice after leaving for an undisclosed injury Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: Sounds like all is OK with Harvin getting right back into action but keep an eye out for any updates.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 8/11/14 8:49pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is reportedly being investigated for alleged assault and property damage. The incident reportedly happened Sunday, Aug. 10, with no involvement of violence or sexual assault. The Bellevue Police Department is investigating the situation.
Huddle Up: Definitely see what develops here. The league office assuredly is as this wouldn't be Lynch's first off-field scrape with the law.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 8/1/14 8:47pm ET
The Seattle Seahawks officially reinstated RB Marshawn Lynch from the Reserve/Did Not Report list Friday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: The drama with Lynch is officially over and he's back with the team. Lynch currently has an ADP of Round 2.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 7/31/14 4:19pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is planning to end his holdout and report to the team in the next 24 hours, according to various media reports. Lynch will not receive a new deal and added money, but the team is expected to add some financial concessions to his contract.
Huddle Up: This knocks the fantasy values of Christine Michael and Robert Turbin back down a peg or two, but both are still expected to get more work this season to lessen the burden on Lynch, who has logged a league-leading 901 rushing attempts over the past 3 seasons.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 7/31/14 8:53pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will make $6.5 million in base salary this season instead of $5 million, according to a league source. Lynch will now be guaranteed an additional $1 million that previously had to be earned by reaching incentives and will also be given $500,000 that he was due to earn next year.
Huddle Up: It's not the brand-new deal Lynch wanted, but it sounds like the Seahawks are being more than accommodating to the veteran back.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 7/30/14 2:14pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson has shown quickness and good passing skills during practice, and the team is looking for ways to use him, according to Pete Carroll. 'He continues to show that he's really, really fast and he can get up on you and he's real comfortable catching everything that you throw at him,' Carroll said. 'We're real excited about Paul and hopefully we'll just keep learning him and figuring him out and figure out how to best utilize his talents. He got talents; he's really quick in and out of his breaks. I love his catching range so we'll try to figure it out but we're real excited right now.'
Huddle Up: Richardson, a second-round pick and the team's top overall draft pick in May, was initially viewed as somewhat of a longer-term project, but the retirement of Sidney Rice has cleared some room on the team's WR depth chart and Richardson and fellow rookie Kevin Norwood (4th round) are battling veterans Jermaine Kearse and Ricardo Lockette for backup positions.
Anthony McCoy - TEPosted 7/29/14 5:59pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy (Achilles') reportedly tore his left Achilles' in practice Tuesday, July 29. McCoy would likely miss the entire 2014 season.
Huddle Up: You really have to feel for McCoy, who missed all of last season with an injury to his right Achilles'. In the meantime, Zach Miller and Luke Willson remain atop the Seattle TE depth chart,and we'll have to see if the defending champs add anyone else for depth purposes.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 7/29/14 8:08pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has been fined $275,000 for missing his sixth straight day of training camp, per collective bargaining agreement rules.
Huddle Up: Ouch -- that's quite the Beastly penalty as the stalemate continues. In the meantime, the fantasy stocks of backups Christine Michael and Robert Turbin continue to climb.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 7/27/14 11:33pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael left practice early Sunday, July 27, after dinging his right shoulder. Head coach Pete Carroll said Michael should be able to return Tuesday, July 29.
Huddle Up: Michael is a hot fantasy commodity growing even warmer as Marshawn Lynch's holdout continues, but injury issues could tap the brakes a little as the second-year RB doesn't exactly have a proven NFL track record (18 carries for 79 yards) to fall back on.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 7/24/14 11:53pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and the organization are at a stalemate in talks regarding a new deal, and the RB will hold out of training camp, according to a source. Lynch wants top-three money for the position, while team officials are unwilling to give him a new deal, believing he is paid adequately. Lynch showed up for minicamp workouts only to avoid being fined.
Huddle Up: Backup Christine Michael already was a sleeper before the holdout news, and his fantasy value will keep climbing the longer the Lynch stalemate lasts.
Sidney Rice - WRPosted 7/23/14 9:51pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice has decided to retire, according to a league source. Rice has decided to retire due to a history of concussions.
Huddle Up: Not that he was slated to be a big part of the Seattle offense anyway, but now the Seahawks need to find someone else to throw a minimal number of times to. And a preposition is a terrible thing to end a sentence with.
Luke Willson - TEPosted 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 - LBPosted 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 - WRPosted 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 - RBPosted 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 - RBPosted 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 - WRPosted 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 - RBPosted 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 - RBPosted 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.
