Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 3/27/17 6:07am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will be used as a complement to RB Eddie Lacy off the bench.
Huddle Up: The demotion could be a blessing in disguise for Rawls, who has struggled with injuries the last two years. There's also no guarantee that Lacy will make the team and stay healthy. C.J. Prosise will also be a complementary back, but Rawls will have some upside as an RB3 in fantasy.
Tyler Lockett - WRPosted 3/18/17 6:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) is ahead of schedule with his recovery from a broken leg and is expected to ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season.
Huddle Up: Lockett has big-play ability, but consistency has been an issue. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward flex candidate heading into next season.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 3/16/17 5:09pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy's new contract includes incentives for each month he meets a target weight designated by the team. He earns an additional $55,000 for being at 255 pounds in May, 250 pounds in June through August and 245 pounds from September to December.
Huddle Up: It's a rather brilliant idea to ensure Lacy is at the desired playing weight so the team can maximize the potential on their new running back. However, that may not be the biggest roadblock the former Green Bay Packer deals with, as he was in fairly decent shape last year before injuries limited him to just five games, the fewest of his career. When he was healthy, Lacy actually looked good, registering a career-high 5.1 yards per carry.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 3/16/17 8:34pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy said he is motivated to prove he is not a fluke, and he feels Seattle's offense fits his running style.
Huddle Up: Lacy will likely serve as the power back in Seattle's offense, and he is worth a flier as a RB3 in case he can approach the numbers he put up in his first two years in the league.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 3/2/17 10:23am ET
Seattle Seahawks RBs Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise will compete against each other for the starting running back job, as expected, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: The expectation among many pundits is that Rawls will technically be the starter with Prosise serving in the change-of-pace/passing role. If that scenario plays out in the offseason, Rawls is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 option and would be better suited in standard leagues. Prosise's ideal draft range is in RB3 territory in PPR leagues.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 2/25/17 8:26pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin finished the 2016 season with 94 catches on 126 targets for 1,128 yards, all career highs, and it was the fourth consecutive season he has improved in all three categories.
Huddle Up: Baldwin didn't find the end zone as much this year, but he finished seventh in the NFL in receptions and 11th in yards. He looks locked in as a WR2 heading into 2017.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 2/21/17 3:53pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson became the fastest quarterback to win 50 games in NFL history. Wilson has started for the Seahawks since the first game of his rookie season in 2012 and has not missed a game since then. He is tied with Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan for the most wins in a quarterback's first five seasons (56).
Huddle Up: Wilson struggled with injuries through the first several games of last season, but his toughness prevailed. Despite throwing just 21 touchdowns, Wilson still achieved QB1 status, partly thanks to his running ability. As long as he remains healthy, Wilson should be drafted as a QB1.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/31/17 7:27pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham admitted at the Pro Bowl that he 'barely practiced' during the weeks leading up to Sundays this season so that he'd be ready for the games. In addition, he 'barely' did any work in the offseason or training camp either, according to teammates.
Huddle Up: Graham was returning from a torn patellar tendon, a serious injury that many thought would severely hobble him throughout the rest of his career, but instead, the former New Orleans Saint responded with a 65-catch, six-touchdown season, which also included his most receiving yards (923) since 2013. With a normal offseason on tap, it's very possible Graham reclaims the top ranking amongst all NFL tight ends in 2017. He should be monitored closely in all drafts.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/29/17 7:25pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been targeted 31 times for 13 catches and six touchdowns in the red zone in 29 games since joining the Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Graham finished 2016 with 923 yards, and even if he remains underutilized in the red zone, he should be drafted as a high-end TE1.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/26/17 10:24am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 2,038 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 2,181 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions at home.
Huddle Up: Wilson played well at times this season but ranked in the top five in terms of sacks, which affected his stats during the year. He will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game in 2017 and can be a solid No. 1 quarterback for fantasy owners.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/26/17 10:52am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin caught 56 passes for 751 yards and four touchdowns at home this season. He caught 38 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns on the road.
Huddle Up: Baldwin has posted at least 1,000 yards in the last two seasons and has 21 touchdowns combined during those seasons. Baldwin should continue to be the top receiver for the Seahawks next season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/26/17 12:11pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham caught all six of his touchdowns at home this season.
Huddle Up: Graham bounced back from a disappointing 2015 season and finished this season with 65 receptions, 923 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games. Graham likely will have a similar role with the Seahawks next season and can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/17/17 6:36am ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is likely to return to the Seahawks next year, and head coach Pete Carroll raved about his play in 2016. 'I thought Jimmy had a terrific year,' Carroll said. 'He was explosive. He was dynamic. He blocked like he's never blocked before. He became a factor on the perimeter blocking stuff, and he's a highlight film. He's got so many big plays that he made during the year.'
Huddle Up: Graham is entering the final year of his contract, and none of the $10 million is guaranteed. Graham bounced back from a ruptured patellar tendon with a 65-923-6 line. It wasn't the game-breaking 86-1,215-16 season from 2013, but his 14.2 yards per reception were a career high. Another good sign was a big second half after a slow start. The position is deeper now than it was at his peak, but he'll still be a high-end TE1 to consider in drafts.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/14/17 5:18pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin had five catches on nine targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Baldwin capped his year with another trip to the end zone, and he is firmly entrenched as Russell Wilson's go-to target. Draft him as a high-floor WR2 in 2017.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 1/14/17 5:12pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls had 11 carries for 34 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Rawls couldn't find running room early, and Seattle had to abandon the ground game after falling behind. He had some big games this year, but unless the Seahawks upgrade their offensive line in the offseason, Rawls will likely be a boom-or-bust RB2 from one game to the next in 2017.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 1/14/17 5:32pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson had four catches for a game-high 83 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Richardson flashed some upside during the postseason, but the production came with Tyler Lockett out of action. Richardson is worth a late-round flier in drafts next year, but temper expectations.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/14/17 5:24pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham caught all three of his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Graham enjoyed a resurgent 2016 campaign, and he heads into next season as one of the safer TE1 options.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/14/17 5:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 17 of his 30 pass attempts for 225 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran six times for 49 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Injuries and a leaky offensive line hampered Wilson for much of the year, but he still has a high ceiling thanks to his running ability. If you can grab him at a discounted price, don't hesitate to draft him as your QB1 in 2017.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 1/13/17 12:27pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) is listed as questionable to suit up in the team's Divisional Round postseason game Saturday, Jan. 14, against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, as head coach Pete Carroll previously said he was looking like a game-time call. Prosise has a good shot of playing, considering he practiced all week, but even if he is out there on Saturday, he'll be at considerably less than 100 percent, plus Thomas Rawls figures to gobble up most of the touches out of the backfield. He won't be a recommended play this weekend for DFS.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 1/13/17 2:05pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Rawls played very well in the Wild Card playoff game and should have a significant role on offense against the Falcons. Owners in all leagues should consider Rawls as a No. 1 running back.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/13/17 2:14pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Graham has been targeted four times or fewer in four of his last five games but is still a weapon in Seattle's passing game. He posted 89 yards against the Falcons in the regular season and should be considered a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/12/17 5:20pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Jan. 12, and was a full participant.
Huddle Up: Graham has posted mediocre numbers the last few weeks, but he had six grabs for 89 yards against Atlanta's porous defense earlier this year. He has the highest ceiling of any tight end in play in the divisional round.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 1/12/17 5:14pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (foot) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: Richardson had a quiet regular season, but he found the end zone in Seattle's playoff opener. With a potential shootout with Atlanta on tap in the divisional round, he could deliver as a DFS sleeper once again.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 1/12/17 5:35pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Jan. 12, and was a full participant.
Huddle Up: Rawls piled up 161 rushing yards in the playoff opener, and a repeat performance could be on tap this weekend against an Atlanta defense allowing 4.5 yards per rush. Rawls is a great alternative to Ezekiel Elliott and Le'Veon Bell in DFS formats.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 1/12/17 5:40pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: Prosise is not expected to play against Atlanta in the divisional round, but if he does happen to suit up, his role as a third-down back could make him worth a look as a low-priced DFS lottery ticket.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 1/12/17 7:49pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) will be a game-time decision against the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: There are obvious risks with using Prosise, but with the potential for a shootout between Seattle and Atlanta, Prosise could make a great DFS sleeper, especially in larger GPPs.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/11/17 4:34pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.
Huddle Up: Graham has received days off of practice over the last few weeks but has been ready to play each week. He should receive a solid amount of targets during the Divisional round playoff game and can be considered a No. 1 tight end for owners.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 1/11/17 4:13pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.
Huddle Up: Rawls rushed for 161 yards and one touchdown in the Wild Card playoff game and should receive plenty of work against the Atlanta Falcons. Owners in all fantasy leagues should consider a No. 1 running back this week.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 1/11/17 6:04pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) practiced for the first time since Week 11 on Wednesday, Jan. 11.
Huddle Up: Head coach Pete Carroll stated earlier in the week Prosise will need to go 'full speed' this week in order to play this week. With the Seahawks playing on Saturday, he's obviously in in a race against time in order for that to happen. If he can go to the Divisional Round versus the Atlanta Falcons, he'll be a high-upside option against a defense that has been torn apart by receiving threats out of the backfield this season.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 1/9/17 10:08am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) will return to practice on Tuesday, Jan. 10, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Prosise flashed the all-purpose talent that made the Seahawks so giddy about his upside when he finally got healthy around midseason, only to watch his ascending stock take a nosedive when he fractured his scapula in Week 11. If Prosise can return this weekend, he could factor heavily into the Seahawks' passing game and be a cheap high-upside DFS option in what could be a bit of a shootout with the Atlanta Falcons.
