Insight: Bennett's new contract will pay him $28.5 million over the next four seasons. Since the start of 2012, Bennett has generated 17.5 sacks while forcing four fumbles. He has not missed a game during that stretch.
Description: The NFL has officially reinstated former Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. SOURCE: Brandon Browner on Twitter
Insight: Browner was suspended in late December for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The Legion of Boom did fine without him in the playoffs and we wouldn't expect Browner to be back in Seattle next season.
Description: The Seahawks officially cut ties with wide receiver Sidney Rice on Friday. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: The move was expected as it frees up $7.3 million in cap money for the Super Bowl champs. Rice scores a lot of touchdowns but his lack of yardage makes him a boom or bust fantasy player. It doesn't help that he's also recovering from a torn ACL. Rice is nothing more than a late round flyer at this point.
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch will plead guilty to reckless driving. The charge stems from a 2012 DUI arrest. SOURCE: Terry Blount, ESPN
Insight: His punishment will be a fine and two years probation. Lynch's lawyer believes he'll be able to avoid suspension by the NFL. Assuming that's the case, Lynch (1,257 rushing yards, 12 TD in 2013) should be a top-ten selection in all fantasy leagues this summer.
Description: Impending free agent Golden Tate says he would be willing to take a homecount discount to stay with Seattle. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: The Seahawks are the NFL's youngest team and could be on the cusp of a dynasty. Tate would love to win another title and returning to Seattle would certainly give him the best chance to do that. Tate reached a new career-high in receiving yards this season (898) but it's worth mentioning that most of those yards came while Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin were out with injuries.
Description: Injured wide receiver Sidney Rice has probably played his last game with Seattle. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com
Insight: The Seahawks just won the title without Rice, so clearly he wasn't that important to the team's success. He'll try to catch on elsewhere, though that might be difficult while he's recovering from a torn ACL. Rice hasn't produced a 1,000-yard receiving season since 2009.
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not expected to report to spring training later this month. Wilson was picked by the Rangers in December's Rule 5 draft. SOURCE: Jon Moroso, Fox Sports
Insight: Wilson, a standout second baseman in college, spent two seasons in the minor leagues with Colorado earlier in his career. After winning a Super Bowl with Seattle in just his second season, it looks like he made the right choice by sticking with football.
Description: Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin has been dealing with a hip injury, but practiced Wednesday and should be ready for the Super Bowl.
Insight: Baldwin is a sure-handed receiver, though with Percy Harvin returning he goes back to being third guy behind Harvin and Golden Tate. he caught six balls for 106 yards against San Francisco and also returned three kickoffs for an average of 36.3 yards.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out Wednesday's practice but it looks like he's just getting some extra rest.
Insight: Lynch has run for 249 yards and three touchdowns in his two playoff games this season. He's still a fantasy "beast" and the Super Bowl won't be any different. The Seahawks will want to keep the ball out of Peyton Manning's hands and the best way to do that is with Lynch rushing at least 25 times.
Description: Seahawks All-Pro corner Richard Sherman was fined $7,875 for taunting 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the end of last week's NFC Championship Game. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Sherman makes $550,000 a year so that's pretty much a slap on the wrist. The Stanford alum led the league with eight interceptions during the regular season. He'll be asked to cover Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas next week in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin was back at practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Curtis Crabtree, Associated Press
Insight: He missed last week's win over San Francisco with a concussion. The talented 25-year-old has yet to play all four quarters in a game this season. Despite his injury, Harvin was ranked as the sixth-best player in Super Bowl XLVIII in a list made by ESPN's Mike Sando and Matt Williamson earlier this week.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, should be available in two weeks for the Super Bowl.
Insight: Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery and suffered a concussion in his return to action in the divisional round against the Saints. He could be the "wild card" that helps the Seahawks' offense keep up with Peyton Manning and Company.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, has been ruled out for the NFC Championship Game, according to ESPN.
Insight: Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery and suffered a concussion in his return to action in the divisional round against the Saints. Seattle will have to rely on Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse Sunday against the 49ers.
Description: Nothing new to report - Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, still hasn't been cleared for the NFC Championship Game.
Insight: Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery and suffered a concussion in his return to action in the divisional round against the Saints. Seattle may have to rely on Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse Sunday against the 49ers.
Description: Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright (foot surgery) returned to the practice field on Wednesday and was a full participant in Thursday's session.
Insight: He hasn't played since Dec. 8, but upgrade him to probable for Sunday's NFC Championship against San Francisco. He was the everyday starter before the injury, but might share time with Malcolm Smith in this one.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, still hasn't been cleared for the NFC Championship Game.
Insight: Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery and suffered a concussion in his return to action in the divisional round against the Saints. Seattle may have to rely on Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse Sunday against the 49ers.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, missed Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery, but is a dynamic talent when healthy. At this point you can't count on Harvin to be ready. Use Golden Tate as the Seahawks top receiver.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints and is questionable for the NFC Championship against San Francisco.
Insight: Harvin exited the game in the first quarter, returned, then came down hard in the end zone late in the first half and was done for the day. Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery, but is a dynamic talent when healthy.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints.
Insight: Harvin exited the game in the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion but was able to return. However, he came down hard in the end zone late in the first half and left the game for good. Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery and is now questionable for the NFC Championship Game.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin says that he'll "absolutely" be able to play Saturday against New Orleans. SOURCE: Liz Mathews, ESPN 710
Insight: Harvin has missed all but one game this season while dealing with hip issues. It doesn't sound like he'll be on a snap count, which means Harvin could be in for a big game. Harvin only had three catches the last time he played the Saints but that was over two years ago.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin reportedly looked "amazing" during his workout on Monday. SOURCE: Ed Werder, ESPN
Insight: A few days ago it looked like Harvin, who has missed all but one game this season after underdoing offseason hip surgery, was going to be out for the rest of the year. Now it looks like he might be on track to compete in Seattle's first playoff game after the bye week. Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin will have reduced roles when Russell Wilson gets his go-to receiver back.
Description: Injured Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin will be back at practice this week. SOURCE: Liz Mathews, 710 ESPN Seattle
Insight: Despite missing almost the whole season with an injured hip, Harvin hasn't been ruled out for Seattle's first playoff game next weekend. Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate have been Russell Wilson's main targets in Harvin's absence.
Description: In all likelihood, Seattle wide receiver Percy Harvin has played his last down of football this season. SOURCE: NFL.com
Insight: The Seahawks are expected to put him on season-ending injured reserve before the playoffs start. He'll finish the year with just one catch for 17 yards. If Harvin comes back healthy, which is always a big if, he could be a top-20 fantasy wide receiver in 2014.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin isn't likely to play again before the playoffs, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report. All coach Pete Carroll would says is, "Again we'll find out on Wednesday, we don't know."
Insight: Harvin's hip pain doesn't seem to be going away. There's no need for fantasy owners to waste a roster spot on him at this point unless your league goes through the playoff run.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury.
Insight: We don't think its too serious, but continue to watch to make sure he gets in at least one practice this week. He's a fantasy "beast" with 1,042 yards rushing, 234 receiving and 12 touchdowns.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin hip's is still sore and is not sure thing to be on the field in Week 15.
Insight: Harvin has played just one game this season following hip surgery, and he had to have another procedure done on the hip last week. Fantasy who stashed him mat end up with nothing to show for it.
Description: Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright will need surgery on his broken foot, according to coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: The injury is of a 1-2 month variety which means he might be able to return if the Seahawks go deep into the playoffs. While Seattle has been able to withstand injuries to the secondary, they aren't as deep at linebacker.
Description: Jaguars backup running back Justin Forsett (foot) was placed on injured reserve.
Insight: With starter Maurice Jones-Drew questionable due to a hamstring injury and Forsett done, the running game would fall to Jordan Todman, Denard Robinson and newly signed Delone Carter if MJD can't play.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) will not play in Week 14.
Insight: Harvin has played just one game this season following hip surgery, and he had to have another procedure done on the hip last week. Doug Baldwin, who has produced 63-77 yards in each of the last four games with a touchdown in three of them, should be considered a solid WR3 this week.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin had a procedure done on his injured hip last week. SOURCE: Liz Mathews, ESPN Seattle
Insight: It sounds like Harvin received a cortisone injection. The Seahawks have already clinched a playoff berth so they won't be in any hurry to bring Harvin back. If he's not 100 percent, we may not see him again until the postseason.
Description: Seattle could opt to hold injured receiver Percy Harvin out until the postseason. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: That won't help fantasy owners any. It's not time to drop Harvin yet but if his hip doesn't improve quickly, there may come a time when fantasy owners have to cut their losses and move on without him.
Description: The Seahawks will be without receiver Percy Harvin (hip) Monday night against the Saints. SOURCE: Sports Illustrated
Insight: The Seahawks have only had Harvin for one game this season so this doesn't change much. Seattle will continue to use running back Marshawn Lynch as the focal point while mixing in a few throws to Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin along the way.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin is questionable heading into Monday night's game against the Saints. SOURCE: John Clayton, ESPN
Insight: He missed practice on Thursday and Friday because of hip soreness. It's become clear that Harvin isn't close to 100 percent and probably won't be until next season. With so many other good wideouts out there, he's just too big a risk to have in your lineup, especially with the Seahawks playing on Monday night this week.
Description: Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner has been hit with an eight-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. SOURCE: Mike Silver, NFL Network
Insight: The reason it's an eight-game ban instead of just four is because Browner is a second-time offender. Browner was probably going to miss the rest of the regular season anyway because of a groin injury. In eight games this season, Browner has recorded 19 tackles and one interception. Ironically, his replacment in the starting lineup, Walter Thurmond, was also suspended this week.
Description: Seattle cornerback Walter Thurmond has been suspended four games for violating the league's drug policy. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: The Seahawks are on bye this week so it's possible he could appeal the suspension. If Thurmond decides not to appeal, he'd be eligible to return for the regular season finale December 29th against St. Louis. Thurmond began the year as a backup but has been starting in place of the injured Brandon Browner.
Description: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said receiver Percy Harvin (hip surgery) will not be limited coming out of the bye, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Insight: Harvin was limited to 16 offensive plays and a kickoff return in his 2013 debut. "When we come back, if everything goes like we hope, then he’ll be right back in the mix and he’ll be in normal rotation and returning kicks and the whole thing," Carroll said Monday.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin (hip surgery) came through his debut without incident.
Insight: Harvin was limited to 16 offensive plays and a kickoff return. He'll get a bye week to get healthier and barring a setback should be a full-time receiver when the Seahawks return to the field in Week 13.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) will practice Wednesday, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Harvin is expected to play on a limited basis in Week 11 against the Vikings, his former team, after missing the first nine games due to hip surgery. He's a must-own player but is just a low-end WR3 this week due to the uncertainty of his situation.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) is expected to play in Week 11 against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: However, he'll play on a limited basis. Harvin will be a risky play until we see how much the Seahawks want to use him coming off his injury. Golden Tate will be the better option for one more week.
Description: Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner "could be out for quite a while" with a groin injury, according to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: Walter Thurmond will take over for Browner at right corner. He'a big-time defense who can cover any receiver and this injury will certainly take away from a Seahawks defense that is ranked third yielding just 15.9 ppg through 10 games.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin was a longshot for Week 10 against Atlanta and he still hasn't practiced so he'll sit out the game.
Insight: Harvin seems likely to return in Week 11, which ironically would be against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin hasn't played yet this season after undergoing offseason hip surgery.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is a longshot for Week 10 against Atlanta. SOURCE: Ben Condotta, Seattle Times
Insight: Harvin, who has now been practicing for over two weeks, seems more likely to return in Week 11. Ironically, that would be against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin hasn't played yet this season after undergoing offseason hip surgery.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has recorded multiple touchdowns in each of the last three games.
Insight: Wilson threw his first two picks since Week 5 Sunday against the Buccaneers but also had 217 yards and two touchdowns through the air and 36 yards and a score on the ground. He can be trusted as a top-10 quarterback in Week 10 at Atlanta.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin won't be activated for Week 9. SOURCE: Lindsay Jones, USA Today
Insight: He's still recovering from offseason hip surgery. Harvin's timetable for a return seems to get murkier by the day. The Seahawks could really use him, especially now that Sidney Rice is done for the year with a torn ACL.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Seattle coach Pete Caroll did not mention any knee issues with Lynch during his Wednesday press conference. Lynch often doesn't practice on Wednesday's anyway for rest, but when that happens he's listed as NIR (not injury related).
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) is not practicing Wednesday, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the team doesn't want to push Harvin yet, even with Sidney Rice going on injured reserve with a torn ACL. We doubt Harvin will be ready to play Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Description: Seattle wideout Sidney Rice is done for the year with a torn ACL. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: It's a blow to the team's receiving corps but with Percy Harvin set to return shortly, help is on the way. Rice will finish the 2013 campaign with 15 receptions, 231 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin should both see more targets in Rice's absence.
Description: Percy Harvin's hip gave him a little trouble after practicing this week, but it's not expected to set him back.
Insight: Harvin wasn't expected back until Week 11, though Monday night's injury to Sidney Rice could speed up the process. Harvin should be a stud in this offense with defenses having to deal with Marshawn Lynch and the running of Russell Wilson and often leaving their receivers in one-on-one situations.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) will not play Monday night, coach Pete Carroll said, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Harvin returned to practice this week, but the team has three weeks before they have to activate him from the PUP list. They face St. Louis and backup quarterback Kellen Clemens this Monday and will likely win the game without him, so there's no need to rush him back. Golden Tate has decent 12-team WR3 value this week. Harvin should be owned in all leagues.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) hasn't been ruled out for Week 8 against St. Louis, but it isn't a good fantasy play to use him this week.
Insight: Harvin returned to practice Tuesday, but the team has three weeks before they have to activate him from the PUP list. They face St. Louis and backup quarterback Kellen Clemens this Monday and can probably win the game without Harvin so the team figures to play it conservatively.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin won't play this week against the Cardinals but there's an outside chance he could be available for next week's tilt against the Rams. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: Harvin needed the first seven weeks of the year to recover from offseason hip surgery. He's the Seahawks' best receiving weapon when healthy.
Description: The Seattle Seahawks will be without middle linebacker Bobby Wagner for the team's Week 7 Thursday night matchup with Arizona.
Insight: The Seahawks are the No. 2 fantasy defense and while this injury will hurt, they should still be a top performer in Week 7 against a Cardinals' offense that is second in the league with 15 turnovers.
Description: The NFL Network is reporting that Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin will begin practicing next week.
Insight: Harvin was eligible to come off the PUP list in Week 7, but we don't expect it to happen. Week 10 or 11 is more likely. If he's still sitting as a free agent in your league it's time to stash him.
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch steamrolled the Titans on Sunday (21 carries, 77 yards, 2 TD, 4 rec, 78 yds).
Insight: It wasn't one of Lynch's more efficient efforts (just 3.7 ypc) but his two touchdowns are sure to have fantasy owners smiling. Week in and week out, Lynch continues to be one of fantasy's most consistent point producers at the running back position.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Friday due to a hip injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, but coach Pete Carroll indicated that Lynch should be able to play. SOURCE: Brady Henderson, 710 ESPN Seattle
Insight: Lynch has 410 rushing yards and 96 receiving yards with four total touchdowns this season, but three of his scores came in Week 2. The running back should be able to play Sunday against Tennessee and is a RB1.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has rushed for 179 yards on 23 carries the last two games after picking up jsut 54 yards on the ground his first three.
Insight: Wilson's fantasy owners need the rushing production because he just isn't a prolific passing option. He had 210 yards, two touchdown and one pick through the air Sunday at Indianapolis, and that represented his second best fantasy passing game of the season.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has alternated good and bad games this season, and Week 4 was one of his good ones. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and also caught three passes for 45 yards against Houston.
Insight: Lynch already has eight catches this season. He came into Sunday's game averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, but he broke free for a 43-yard run against the Texans.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had four touchdowns Sunday against the Jaguars before being pulled in the third quarter.
Insight: The Seahawks pulled out their starters after going up 31-0 with 11:41 remaining in the third. Wilson threw for 202 yards in the game and hit Sidney Rice and Zach Miller two times apiece for scores.
Description: According to NBC Sports' Michele Tafoya, the weather in Seattle for Sunday night's game against the 49ers is not expected to be as bad as initially expected.
Insight: Tafoya says it appears the area will just have light rain. With winds expected to be around 10 mph, fantasy owners can start all relevant Seahawks and Niners without worrying about the weather conditions.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is ahead of schedule in his recovery from hip surgery and has "wowed his surgeon," according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.
Insight: Harvin tweeted earlier this week that he is "making serious progress" and that fans should "keep an eye on Week 7." He initially was expected to be out into December, but he could be back well before then.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin tweeted Wednesday that fans should "keep an eye on Week 7."
Insight: Harvin informed the public that he is "making serious progress" in his recovery from hip surgery. While it's unlikely Harvin will be back immediately after his stay on the PUP list ends, fantasy owners should target him late in drafts because he could very well be back before November.
Description: Seattle coach Pete Carroll expects wideout Sidney Rice (knee) to be ready for Week 1, according to a beat writer Bob Condotta.
Insight: Rice is as fragile as they come and any fantasy owner who takes a chance on him better be holding his lucky rabbit's foot. He caught 50 balls for 748 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but missed 17 of 32 games in the previous two campaigns.
Description: Another nice showing from Seahawks rookie backup running back Christine Michael. He rushed 11 times for 97 yards against Green Bay on Friday night.
Insight: Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him as he looks like a better option/handcuff than Robert Turbin. Michael has rushed for 186 yards on 27 carries in the preseason (6.9 ypc).
Description: Seattle second-year wide receiver Jermaine Kearse put together quite a performance this week after catching three balls for 43 yards and two scores and returning a kickoff 107 yards for a touchdown.
Insight: With Percy Harvin out for a while and Sidney Rice hurting, the Seahawks can use all the wideout depth they can get behind Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. Add in return yardage and Kearse could be a nice last-round flier with upside.
Description: A nice showing from Seahawks No. 3 running back, rookie Christine Michael, in the preseason opener - 16 carries for 89 yards.
Insight: Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him and he could give backup Robert Turbin a run for his money.
Description: Jaguars backup running back Justin Forsett continues to miss time with a sprained right toe.
Insight: Given the fact that starter Maurice Jones-Drew missed 10 games last season and is still sidelined while rehabing his surgically repaired left foot, the backup job in Jacksonville has added importance. It's Forsett's job to lose, but his absence gives rookie Denard Robinson and other youngsters an opportunity to show their talents.
Description: Seattle receiver Golden Tate has been developing a solid rapport with second-year quarterback Russell Wilson and could be ready to take a leap forward.
Insight: With Percy Harvin sidelined, Sidney Rice getting treatment for his knee in Switzerland and tight end Zach Miller also injured, Tate and Wilson are getting plenty of reps together. He could end up being a nice late-round buy. His fantasyfootballcalculator.com ADP has dropped from 158 to 123 over the past couple of weeks.
Description: According to Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com, Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is expected to return from his hip surgery around Thanksgiving or in early December.
Insight: Harvin tweeted Tuesday that he would need surgery on his torn hip labrum after all, but he's apparently not done for the season. Still, he's likely to miss at least 11 games. Seattle's bye week is not until Week 12. With Sidney Rice also regularly banged up, Golden Tate could emerge as the No. 1 receiver for the Seahawks.
Description: The first word of the season on Seattle wideout Sidney Rice, from coach Pete Carroll, isn't a good one - he went to Switzerland for treatment of his knee.
Insight: Carroll says he'll be ready for Week 1. Rice is as fragile as they come and any fantasy owner who takes a chance on him better be holding his lucky rabbit's foot. He caught 50 balls for 748 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but missed 17 of 32 games in the previous two campaigns.
Description: According to the Seattle Times, Seahawks GM John Schneider told The SiriusXM Blitz Monday that the team is prepared for "a huge, huge spectrum" of outcomes when it comes to Percy Harvin's hip injury.
Insight: Schneider said Harvin could be anywhere from practicing next week to undergoing season-ending surgery. He'll have a second opinion on his torn hip labrum Tuesday in New York.
Description: Sources tell USA Today that Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin does not need surgery on his injured hip.
Insight: Phew. If Harvin opted for surgery, he'd miss the whole season. Despite the good news, there's no guarantee Harvin will be ready for Week 1 versus Carolina. If Seattle places Harvin on the physically unable to perform list, he'd be required to miss the first six games of the season.
Description: If Seattle receiver Percy Harvin needs surgery to repair a torn hip labrum, he's likely to miss the entire 2013 season, reports Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.
Insight: Harvin is seeking a second opinion on his hip after his first doctor recommended surgery. If he does need season-ending surgery, it could significantly alter the fantasy value of several players, including QB Russell Wilson and WRs Sidney Rice and Golden Tate.
Description: Seattle second-year back Robert Turbin is expected to take over third-down receiving duties (from Leon Washington who is now in New England) along with his backup rushing duties behind Marshawn Lynch, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Turbin is a good late-draft gamble for those who select Lynch in the first round. It will also be good insurance should Lynch's legal troubles arrive earlier than expected.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch's 2012 DUI arrest is still out there, but with a Dec 27 court date and the regular season ending on Dec 29, fantasy owners should not have to worry about him missing any time because of it.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns. Fantasy owners can handcuff Robert Turbin in case of injury, but it appears they won't have to worry about a suspension.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch still has a 2012 DUI arrest hanging over him, but it's appearing more and more likely that the case won't be decided until late 2013 or 2014, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns, so fantasy owners hope the outcome doesn't get decided until after this season is over. Fantasy owners might want to handcuff Robert Turbin just in case, but it might not be necessary.
Description: Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield has agreed to a deal to play with the Seattle Seahawks for next season.
Insight: The combination of Winfield, Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner is going to make it extremely tough for fantasy receivers in 2013-14. Factor this into any receiver you draft from the NFC West.
Description: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Seahawks have signed quarterback Brady Quinn to a new contract.
Insight: Quinn actually started a few games for Kansas City last season but that won't happen in 2013 unless Russell Wilson suffers some kind of an injury. This probably isn't quite the career trajectory Quinn had been hoping for when he entered the league as a first round pick in 2007 but at least he's still getting a paycheck.
Description: Terrell Owens was spotted working out with New England quarterback Tom Brady Wednesday at USC's practice facility. SOURCE: ESPN Boston
Insight: Of course now the rumor is that Owens will be a Patriot in 2013. Bill Belichick has taken risks on high maintenance big names before (Corey Dillon, Albert Haynesworth, Randy Moss and Chad Johnson/Ochocinco to name a few) but keep in mind that Owens is almost 40 and he couldn't even make the Seahawks' 53-man roster last summer. T.O. playing for the Patriots looks like an extreme long shot at this point.
Description: According to Yahoo! Sports' Mike Silver, the Raiders have "legitimate" interest in Matt Flynn.
Insight: With a divorce with Carson Palmer looking more and more likely, the Raiders could be in the market for a quarterback, either through the draft or free agency. Flynn could very well have a starting job next season.
