Tyler Lockett - WRPosted 6/24/18 8:19pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett said he is healthier than he has ever been, and head coach Pete Carroll said having Lockett healthy is 'really positive' for the offense.
Huddle Up: Lockett should be the No. 2 receiver for Seattle this year. He brings some injury risk, but Lockett has WR3 upside if you are willing to take the chance.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 6/15/18 11:54am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been 'the most impressive of any running back (in the team's offseason practices) this summer', and general manager John Schneider has said that at times Carson looks like the best player on the field, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.
Huddle Up: While the Seahawks couldn't have known Carson was going to drop their jaws when they drafted Rashaad Penny in April, it was clear running back was far from their biggest need. Carson was the best back in Seattle last season by a wide margin, and it now appears he stands a real chance to push Penny hard for the starting job. Early drafters should not hesitate spending a late-round pick on Carson in the event he forces a backfield split or even possibly wins the starting job in the preseason.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 6/14/18 6:45pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny looks 'comfortable' in pass protection, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: After being selected in the first round, Penny is going to be given a chance to show his stuff. Carroll continues to talk him up as an every-down back, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him deliver RB2 production as a rookie.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 6/13/18 11:22pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been working with the first-team offense and ahead of rookie RB Rashaad Penny during minicamp. Carson earned praise from head coach Pete Carroll during OTAs as well.
Huddle Up: It's still too early to jump to any conclusions, but Collins continues to get rave reviews, and Seattle showed with the Matt Flynn-Russell Wilson situation years ago that they'll go with the best player regardless of investment. Keep an eye on Collins as we get into training camp and the preseason.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 6/10/18 7:43pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin and QB Russell Wilson are the 'tightest they've ever been,' according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Wilson is entrenched as a QB1 heading into 2018, and Baldwin is an underrated WR2.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 6/7/18 4:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson, who is now healthy from last season's ankle injury, has 'stood out' during organized team activities, according to head coach Pete Carroll, from a physical conditioning standpoint. Carroll gushed how 'he hasn't missed one snap of anything' and 'he's just looked so fit and just so cut and quick and explosive and all of that.'
Huddle Up: If Seattle's backfield situation wasn't so crowded, Carson would be looking like a legit RB2 entering summer fantasy drafts, but alas, the 2017 rookie will have heavy competition just to solidify a useful role within this offense. If he emerges with a set workload, Carson will be someone worth selecting.
Tyler Lockett - WRPosted 6/7/18 5:23pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is now fully healthy from the leg injury he suffered at the end of the 2016 season, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who said it was 'obvious' that Lockett was not 100 percent last year. 'It's really been a blessing for him to be able to get his legs back underneath him,' Carroll said. 'Last year was a struggle for him, the offseason for certain, but throughout the season itself he was not able to do things in the same manner that he had done it in years past, and that's really just workload. He just couldn't do as much, had to take care of his legs more. So he's back at it, he's really playing fast, he has no restrictions of any kind of after effects of the surgery of last year or since he?s been hurt.'
Huddle Up: Lockett figures to be a nice bounce-back candidate given everything Carroll said about him, and if he's truly fully healthy now, it would appear the 25-year-old can return to his rookie form of a few years ago when he registered career bests in receptions, yards and touchdowns. Lockett carries WR3 potential into the upcoming campaign as a result.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 6/7/18 6:28pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has 'stood out' during OTAs, head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, June 7.
Huddle Up: Carson should open the year as the backup to Rashaad Penny, putting him in RB4 territory for now. If Penny happens to struggle or suffers an injury, Carson could push into flex territory.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 6/7/18 6:38pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise has 'looked good' during OTAs, according to head coach Pete Carroll, but Carroll said Prosise is 'battling' for a roster spot.
Huddle Up: With Rashaad Penny now in the mix, Prosise is going to be an option on passing downs, at best. If he makes the team, he will only be a late-round flier in PPR formats.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 6/1/18 6:52pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson said he has added about 10 pounds and feels 'a lot more solid' than he did last season.
Huddle Up: Carson looked like the frontrunner to start in 2018 after flashing some potential last year, but Seattle then spent a first-round pick on Rashaad Penny. Carson looks like a RB4 at this point but is worth stashing in case Penny struggles.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 5/25/18 9:37pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle) is in 'extraordinary condition' following ankle surgery last year, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Carson flashed some potential in four games last year before suffering the injury, but first-round pick Rashaad Penny will likely lead the backfield in 2018, dropping Carson into RB4 territory.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 5/16/18 3:41pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny signed his four-year rookie deal on Wednesday, May 16.
Huddle Up: Penny is someone to look out for in fantasy drafts, as it's very possible he earns a sizable role. It's certainly no guarantee, though, as he'll have plenty of competition from the likes of Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise, Mike Davis and J.D. McKissic. Even so, considering how the Seahawks' rush attack last year was such a mess, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Penny garner a meaningful workload in his rookie campaign.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 5/7/18 9:41am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will work on pass protection this offseason because the team wants to see if he will able to be a three-down running back, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Penny will compete with Chris Carson for the starting job but may only be on the field for first and second downs if he is not able to pass protect. Owners should monitor the competition during training camp because Penny can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he wins the job.
Will Dissly - TEPosted 4/28/18 10:03am ET
The Seattle Seahawks selected Washington TE Will Dissly with the 120th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Dissly could have a decent role as a rookie because the team does not have a clear starter at the position. Owners can keep an eye on him during training camp but he would not be more than a No. 2 tight end in any league.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 4/27/18 6:52am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will be a three-down back, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'He can do everything,' Carroll said. 'He needs to work on his pass protection, which he was not asked to do a lot of. But he will give us the ability to play him on all downs, and that versatility is really big.'
Huddle Up: Penny will be an RB3 in fantasy with some tantalizing upside as he figures to see a ton of work.
J.D. McKissic - RBPosted 4/13/18 1:20pm ET
Seattle Seahawks exclusive rights free-agent RB J.D. McKissic signed his one-year tender offer Friday, April 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: McKissic has a chance to have a decent role on offense in 2018 as a receiver out of the backfield. He should have some value in point-per-reception leagues and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in those leagues.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 4/9/18 11:10am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis will work with the first-team offense once offseason workouts begin, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Davis received solid playing time last season but likely will have to compete with Chris Carson for the starting running back job during training camp. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few months before they can determine Davis' fantasy value.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 3/27/18 10:04am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg) is '100 percent now' and should have no problem being ready to participate in OTAs, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are likely to add a running back in the draft, if only to give themselves some more insurance at a position they have not had much luck with health-wise in recent years. Carson proved quite capable in four games as a rookie before a broken leg ended his season and should be considered the favorite to start in 2018 almost regardless of whom the Seahawks might add next month.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 3/22/18 6:03am ET
Free-agent RB Mike Davis (Seahawks) agreed to a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 22. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Davis' value hinges on what else the Seahawks do at the position. Right now, he stands to get a good chunk of work, but that can change. Keep him in mind for an RB3 pickup.
C.J. Prosise - RBPosted 3/19/18 10:20pm ET
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently mentioned that the club 'needs' RB C.J. Prosise 'to be a reliable dude,' adding that he's an 'extremely talented guy.'
Huddle Up: Seattle's running game was a mess last season, although that had a lot to do with most of their tailbacks being banged up, including Prosise, who landed on injured reserve in mid-November and did not return. That's been a theme of his career up to this point, having played in just 11 out of a possible 32 games since being drafted two years ago. As Schneider said, he's talented but needs to stay healthy, and he'll carve out a useful role if that is the case.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 3/16/18 6:32am ET
Free-agent RB Thomas Rawls (Seahawks) is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Rawls, while his fantasy balloon has all but popped, still has RB5 capability.
J.D. McKissic - RBPosted 3/14/18 2:15pm ET
The Seattle Seahawks gave RB J.D. McKissic an exclusive-rights tender on Wednesday, March 14.
Huddle Up: McKissic could be in line for a much larger role in 2018 depending on offseason moves, the draft, etc., as the team elected not to tender Mike Davis and Thomas Rawls, two competitors in what was a logjam in the backfield.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 3/14/18 2:09pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis was not tendered or did not receive a qualifying offer on Wednesday, March 14, so he is now free to sign with any organization.
Huddle Up: Davis had a chance to shine at the end of the 2017 season due to injuries at the position, but he averaged just 3.5 yards per carry on 68 attempts while snagging 15 balls for 131 yards. He might get a chance to latch on elsewhere, but he isn't someone to bother with in fantasy football at the moment.
Thomas Rawls - RBPosted 3/14/18 2:08pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls was not tendered or did not receive a qualifying offer on Wednesday, March 14, so he is now an unrestricted free agent.
Huddle Up: Rawls had ample opportunity in Seattle, but his propensity for injury held him from achieving big things. He'll have to go to another organization and try and prove himself. At this point, his fantasy appeal is rather minimal.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 3/13/18 10:13am ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Paul Richardson is expected to sign a five-year contract worth a reported $40 million deal with $20 million guaranteed, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It's a pretty penny for an injury-prone receiver, but he should give Washington the deep threat it lacked last season after letting DeSean Jackson bolt via free agency. Richardson finally stayed healthy for the most part in 2016 and enjoyed a mini-breakout season, finishing with 44 catches for 703 yards and six touchdowns - all career highs. Richardson could reach fantasy WR3 value in the nation's capital, but he probably needs to be viewed more as a WR4.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 3/13/18 11:24am ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is talking with the New Orleans Saints about a possible deal, but the talks have stalled over the last few hours, according to sources. The two sides are hoping to reach an agreement at some point.
Huddle Up: Graham should know the Saints offensive scheme since he played for the team before he was traded to the Seahawks and would have a solid role in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end if he signs with the Saints.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 3/13/18 11:13am ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is receiving interest from the Baltimore Ravens, but the Ravens are not considered one of the favorites to sign him.
Huddle Up: Graham probably will not sign with the Ravens this offseason, so the Ravens likely will look to add a tight end in free agency or the draft. Owners in most leagues probably will can avoid whoever starts at tight end for the Ravens.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 3/13/18 1:19pm ET
Free-agent TE Jimmy Graham (Seahawks) will sign a three-year deal with the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.
Huddle Up: This is one of the biggest moves of the free-agent period so far. Graham has the ability to be lethal in Green Bay's offense with Aaron Rodgers throwing his way -- a quarterback who has historically liked throwing to his tight ends. The key for Graham will be to stay healthy. If he can then there's no reason why he can't finish as a top three fantasy tight end.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 3/12/18 10:26am ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is receiving interest from the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Graham is receiving interest from several teams but could consider the Packers as a good option because of Aaron Rodgers. He will be a starter no matter where he signs and can still be a No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 3/12/18 2:12pm ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is expected to sign with either the New Orleans Saints or the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Graham likely would be the starting tight end for either team and would join a solid offense. He should continue to be a target in the red zone and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end next season.
