Seattle Seahawks Player Notes
For The Last 365 Days
 
Doug Baldwin, WR12/15/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin caught three balls for 53 yards.
Insight: Although he's the No. 1 Seahawks receivers, he's not a consistent fantasy option. The Seahawks went ultra conservative on offense and everyone other than Marshawn Lynch suffered because of it.
Jermaine Kearse, WR12/15/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse saw six targets and led the team with five receptions for 78 yards.
Insight: Kearse has yet to prove himself a value to fantasy owners. This was his season high for receiving yards and he has only one touchdown reception. Kearse should still not be owned in fantasy leagues.
Russell Wilson, QB12/15/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was quiet in Week 15 with 168 yards and a touchdown passing and 27 yards on the ground.
Insight: Games like this one are why Wilson's fantasy value is limited. He's not a prolific passer, doesn't have great receivers and the team can win even when they are ultra conservative on offense because of their great defense.
Marshawn Lynch, RB12/15/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch rushed 21 times for 91 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: The 49ers defense played well, particularly in the first half, but Lynch still managed to help fantasy owners. It will be a tough game again in Week 16 against an Arizona Cardinals defense that is No. 6 against the run and has yielded just six rushing touchdowns this season.
Jermaine Kearse, WRCold12/8/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse saw seven targets, but managed just three receptions for 37 yards.
Insight: Kearse has yet to prove himself a value to fantasy owners. His season high for yards receiving is just 70 and he has only one touchdown reception. Kearse should not be owned in fantasy leagues.
Doug Baldwin, WR12/8/2014 10:16:00 AM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin caught five balls for 97 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Although he's the No. 1 Seahawks receivers, he's not a consistent fantasy option. But the Eagles were concerned about the running of Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson and that opened up the secondary.
Russell Wilson, QB12/8/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was "on" both with his arm and legs against the Eagles.
Insight: Wilson threw for 263 yards and two scores and rushed for 48 yards and a touchdown. This is the upper limit of what Wilson usually produces.
Marshawn Lynch, RB12/8/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch set the tone of the game with his hard running and totaled 113 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.
Insight: Lynch rushed 23 times for 86 yards which isn't exciting, but it forced the Eagles defense to come up close to the line of scrimmage and opened up passing lanes.
Marshawn Lynch, RB12/7/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (back) is active for the big game against Philadelphia as expected.
Insight: Lynch should be the focus of the Seahawks offense ... and the Eagles defense.
Luke Willson, TE11/28/2014 9:11:00 AM
Description: Seahawks tight end Luke Willson led the team in targets (6) against the 49ers
Insight: That might be an exciting fact, except that he caught just four for 39 yards. Another tight end, Tony Moeaki, who led the team in yards receiving, caught one for 63 yards.
Doug Baldwin, WRCold11/28/2014 9:10:00 AM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin caught just two balls for 28 yards against the 49ers.
Insight: Although he's the No. 1 Seahawks receivers, he's not a very good fantasy option. He's totaled just four receptions for 34 yards over the past two games.Quarterback Russell Wilson doesn't rely on any one receiver.
Russell Wilson, QB11/28/2014 9:06:00 AM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had 236 passing yards and a touchdown and added 35 rushing yards against the 49ers.
Insight: It's a typical Wilson-type game that relies on a combination of running and passing to make him a QB1.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/28/2014 9:04:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch cracked the 100-yard mark for the third time in four games racking up 104 yards on 20 carries against the San Francisco 49ers Thursday night.
Insight: It was a solid though unspectacluar performance that won't have fantasyt owners jumping for joy or crying. After his four touchdown outburst against the Giants on Nov. 9, he hasn't scored in three games.
Doug Baldwin, WR11/24/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin caught just two balls for six yards against the Cardinals.
Insight: Russell Wilson spread the ball around and didn't challenge the Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie duo, instead targeting his tight ends for most of the afternoon.
Russell Wilson, QB11/24/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had just 211 passing yards, but added 73 rushing yards against the Cardinals.
Insight: It's a typical Wilson-type game that relies on his running to make him a QB1.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/24/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch couldn't put together a third straight 100-yard game and disappointed fantasy owners.
Insight: Lynch rushed 15 times for just 39 yards and caught three balls for 43 yards. It's not a fluke that the Cardinals are a top-five team against the run (84.4 ypg).
Luke Willson, TE11/16/2014 5:57:00 PM
Description: Seahawks tight end Luke Willson caught three passes for 51 yards against the Chiefs.
Insight: Willson made the most of his opportunities, catching all three targets he saw. Considering the Seahawks leading receiver had 54 yards, it was a good fantasy day for Willson. Unforunately, fellow tight end Tony Moeaki caught the touchdown.
Doug Baldwin, WR11/16/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin caught a touchdown in the, 24-20, loss in Kansas City.
Insight: Baldwin caught six passes for 45 yards in addition to the touchdown. He was tied for the team lead with nine targets. Of all the Seattle wide receivers, he is the most reliable in fantasy.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/16/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not score in Week 11 after four touchdowns in Week 10.
Insight: Lynch did rush 24 times for 124 yards, but the Seahawks, like every other NFL team this season, did not score on the ground against the Chiefs. Lynch remains a RB1.
Russell Wilson, QB11/16/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had just 178 passing yards and added 71 rushing yards against the Chiefs.
Insight: Wilson did throw for two touchdowns to turn in a decent fantasy day. With his running ability, he remains a low-end QB1.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/14/2014 4:50:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (calf) returned to practice on Friday, but is being listed as questionable for Week 11.
Insight: He had missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, and coach Pete Carroll admitted Lynch is "banged up." However, we feel he will be a full-go on Sunday, as we have him as our fourth ranked running back for Week 11.
Luke Willson, TE11/14/2014 4:42:00 PM
Description: Seattle tight end Luke Willson (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Week 11.
Insight: We have him listed 24th in our tight end rankings this week, but even if Willson plays, Cooper Helfet and Tony Moeaki will steal some snaps from him. Owners should avoid all Seahawk tight ends.
Zach Miller, TE11/12/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks placed tight end Zach Miller on injured reserve with his ankle injury, ending his season.
Insight: Miller needs another surgery on his ankle because the first surgery did not fix the problem. Miller will likely be a cap-casualty before the 2015 season. Seattle will turn to Luke Wilson at tight end.
Doug Baldwin, WRCold11/10/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin led Seattle in targets (6), but totaled just 31 yards on four receptions.
Insight: Baldwin is the team's No. 1 target, but did little as the Seahawks featured a powerful ground attack. That's two poor games in a row and he can't be counted on if Seattle is going to run at this level.
Russell Wilson, QB11/10/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson has a very quiet day, throwing for 172 yards and was intercepted twice, but his legs saved fantasy owners.
Insight: Wilson rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown. Seattle rushed for a stunning 350 yards against the Giants and Wilson was one of two Seahawks to run for more than 100 yards.
Marshawn Lynch, RBHot11/10/2014 10:26:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch exploded for 140 yards and four touchdowns.
Insight: Lynch had much of his offensive line back in front of him and it showed. There were holes to run through and Lynch took full advantage. Lets hope it continues.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/9/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is "ready to roll" against the Giants this Sunday.
Insight: Lynch was dealing with a minor calf injury, but was never in doubt for this one. He has much of his offensive line back in front of him and should have a big game.
Max Unger, C11/9/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Seahawks starting center Max Unger is expected to return to the lineup for the first time since Week 5.
Insight: Unger and the addition of Russell Okung are two reasons we like Marshawn Lynch this weekend.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/7/2014 4:34:00 PM
Description: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told ESPN Seattle reporter Liz Mathews that running back Marshawn Lynch is "ready to roll" against the Giants this Sunday.
Insight: Lynch sat out Thursday's practice, but Carroll reassured fantasy owners he will play. Lynch is The Sports Network's No. 1 running back for Week 10, so make sure he is in the lineup.
Doug Baldwin, WR11/3/2014 9:48:00 AM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin led Seattle in targets, but totaled just 38 yards of five receptions.
Insight: With Percy Harvin gone, Baldwin is the team's No. 1 target, but did little against Oakland's secondary.
Russell Wilson, QB11/3/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson has a very quiet day, throwing for 179 yards and rushing for 31 yards without a touchdown.
Insight: Wilson completed just 17 of 35 passes against a surprisingly stubborn Oakland defense.
Marshawn Lynch, RB11/3/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was a major part of the offense against Oakland and led the team with 26 touches.
Insight: He had 21 carries for 67 yards and a pair of touchdowns and caught all five targets for 76 yards. Now that's what we like to see from our stud running back.
Doug Baldwin, WR10/26/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin led Seattle in receiving during Week 8.
Insight: He had six catches for 61 yards, on eight targets, and clearly looks like Seattle's top receiving threat.
Marshawn Lynch, RB10/26/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a subpar day on Sunday.
Insight: He had 14 carries for 62 yards, and was unable to find the end zone. Lynch has failed to reach the 100-yard plateau on the ground in each game since Week 1.
Russell Wilson, QB10/26/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 199 yards and rushed for 35 yards in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Insight: He threw one touchdown, as well as an interception, and led the Seahawks to a game-winning, fourth-quarter touchdown. It wasn't a great fantasy day for Wilson, but he remains a solid QB1.
Derrick Coleman, FB10/20/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman apparently broke his foot while warming up for the game against the Rams on Sunday, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.
Insight: Seattle used Robert Turbin as the fullback Sunday.
Tharold Simon, CB10/20/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Tharold Simon sprained an ankle in Sunday's game and did not return.
Insight: No timetable has been announced for when he'll get back on the field.
Doug Baldwin, WRHot10/19/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin was rumored to be a target for Percy Harvin's anger.
Insight: With Harvin traded to the Jets, Baldwin excelled on the field as Seattle's No. 1 receiving target. He caught seven of 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. Harvin had just 133 yards in receptions in five games.
Russell Wilson, QBHot10/19/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Russell Wilson owners will be very happy with his 300-yard passing game and 100-yard rushing game. He threw two touchdown passes and ran for another.
Insight: Wilson is normally a guy who puts up around 200 yards passing a 50 yards rushing so for him to hit both bonuses is unexpectedly huge production.
Percy Harvin, WRCold10/17/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks Percy Harvin have put Percy Harvin on the injury report due to a thigh injury.
Insight: Harvin has only once totaled more than 50 combined yards in a game this season. At this point he's not worthy of a fantasy start. He has loads of talent, it's just not being used.
Zach Miller, TE10/15/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Seahawks tight end Zach Miller has been ruled out for Week 7 at the Rams according to ESPN.
Insight: Luke Wilson will start at tight end. Miller remains week-to-week.
Jermaine Kearse, WR10/13/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse led the Seahawks in receiving yards against Dallas.
Insight: He had three catches for 62 yards, on seven targets. Kearse is still only a WR4, for now.
Byron Maxwell, CB10/13/2014 1:17:00 PM
Description: Seattle cornerback Byron Maxwell has been diagnosed with a calf strain, according to Seahawks reporter Liz Mathews.
Insight: No timetable for his return has been announced. Marcus Burley is likely to start opposite Richard Sherman and should be expected to be the target for opposing teams.
Percy Harvin, WRCold10/13/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: The Seahawks Percy Harvin continues to be more decoy than productive receiver.
Insight: Harvin has only once totaled more than 50 combined yards in a game this season. At this point he's not worthy of a fantasy start.
Marshawn Lynch, RB10/13/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Once again the Seahawks forgot they have a stud running back in their backfield.
Insight: Lynch saw just 10 carries for 61 yards and caught one ball for one yard. That's not enough opportunities for one of the game's best running backs.
Marshawn Lynch, RB10/13/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: At least Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch saw 20 touches today.
Insight: He only totaled 71 yards and no touchdowns, but the workload was more in tune with what fantasy owners expect.
Russell Wilson, QB10/13/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson couldn't do anything with his arm or legs against a tough Dallas defense.
Insight: Wilson was just 14-of-28 for 126 yards with no touchdown passes and one interception. He did run one in from nine yards out in the third quarter, but it was an unsatisfying day for his fantasy owners.
Charlie Whitehurst, QB10/12/2014 12:02:00 PM
Description: Tennessee quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is starting Sunday against the Jaguars.
Insight: Even with a decent matchup, Whitehurst is no more than a QB2 heading into thhis contest.
Percy Harvin, WR10/9/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks added Percy Harvin to the injury report on Thursday as he missed practice according to Seahawks.com.
Insight: This is never good news, but we do not believe Harvin will miss Week 6 against the Cowboys. Monitor his status through the weekend, but for now, he is a viable WR2.
Percy Harvin, WR10/6/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin walked off the field with a trainer seconds before halftime against the Redskins on Monday night. UPDATE: Harvin had a cramp and he is hoping to return.
Insight: It looked like Harvin's left leg just buckled on him. At this point, it is too early to say if it was his knee or ankle that was effected. Hopefully, he comes out with the rest of the team for the third quarter.
Luke Willson, TE9/29/2014 1:37:00 PM
Description: Seattle backup tight end Luke Willson should jump up to the starting role with word that Zach Miller will be out an extended period of time due to an ankle issue.
Insight: Willson has one career catch for one yard. Fantasy owners should wait and see how Russell Wilson uses him before adding him to a roster.
Zach Miller, TE9/29/2014 1:34:00 PM
Description: Seattle tight end Zach Miller had a procedure on his ankle during the bye week and will miss an "extended period of time, " according to the FOX Sports report.
Insight: Miller wasn't a fantasy option, so this shouldn't change any lineups.
Percy Harvin, WR9/22/2014 11:25:00 AM
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is a pain for defensive coordinators, but hasn't been as big a factor for fantasy owners as hoped for.
Insight: Harvin caught 7-of-9 targets for 42 yards but didn't catch anything and returned one kick for 13 yards. So far his numbers for the season are disappointing, but at least his presence is allowing others to get open.
Russell Wilson, QB9/22/2014 11:23:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson put together an excellent first half going 11-for-13 for 145 yards and a pair of scores.
Insight: he looked more like Peyton Manning than Manning did in the first half, but Wilson did little in the second half and finished with 223 yards, two TDs and 1 INT.
Marshawn Lynch, RBHot9/22/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: The Seahawks remembered their stud running back, marshawn Lynch, Sunday after ignoring him in a loss to San Diego.
Insight: Lynch received 29 touched, totaled 128 yards and two touchdowns and the Seahawks got back into the win column. Coincidence ... I think not.
Jermaine Kearse, WR9/16/2014 2:19:00 PM
Description: Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse led the Seahawks in receiving yards against San Diego.
Insight: That's not really good news since he only produced 61 yards. Seattle simply doesn't throw enough to support a lot of fantasy wide receivers and Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin figure to lead the way.
Percy Harvin, WR9/16/2014 2:16:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin was not used as much as we had hoped in Week 2 - rushing the ball two times, but only seeing one targeted pass.
Insight: Harvin caught 7-of-7 targets for 59 yards and rushed four times for 41 yards in the opener, but his three touches in San Diego are worrisome. The team simply has to make better use of his dynamic talents and if they continue at the Week 2 level fantasy owners might have to bail. Hopefully, it was just a one-game deviation.
Russell Wilson, QB9/14/2014 7:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson finished the afternoon 17-of-25 for 202 yards and two scores, but couldn't engineer a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.
Insight: Wilson was again solid, but not spectacular. He has cracked the 230-yard passing mark just once in the last eight games. He's a much better team leader than fantasy asset. It was curious that the Seahawks risked an injury down nine points with 13 second remaining.
Marshawn Lynch, RB9/14/2014 7:38:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch carried the ball just six times, for 36 yards, but at least he helped fantasy owners with a touchdown reception.
Insight: It's hard to believe Seattle used their best weapon so little. It's been three years since Lynch was used so infrequently. They lost that game in Week 2 of 2011, too.
Robert Turbin, RB9/14/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Seattle backup back Robert Turbin is still the handcuff ot Marshawn Lynch with Christine Michael inactivfe for the second consecutive week.
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.
Robert Turbin, RB9/14/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Seattle backup back Robert Turbin is still the handcuff ot Marshawn Lynch with Christine Michael inactivfe for the second consecutive week.
Insight: Turbin saw six touches in the opener and is simply good insurance should Lynch run into trouble.
Christine Michael, RB9/12/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Christine Michael (hamstring) has missed the first two days of practice this week and we await Friday to see if there is any chance he'll be ready to go in Week 2.
Insight: The second-year back went into training camp with a ton of buzz, but Marshawn Lynch remains the workhorse after resolving his contract issues and Robert Turbin will be his backup at least until Michael is healthy.
Russell Wilson, QB9/12/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for just 191 yards in the Week 1 win, though he did manage two touchdowns (Ricardo Lockette, Derrick Coleman).
Insight: Wilson has cracked the 230-yard passing mark just once in the last seven games and his fantasy value is as a low-end starter. He's a much better team leader than fantasy asset. It's a good sign that he targeted talented Percy Harvin a team-high seven times in the opening week and may help his statistics down the road.
Percy Harvin, WR9/4/2014 11:53:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin was as exciting as advertised producing as part of the passing game and running game.
Insight: Harvin missed most of last season due to inujury but looked perfectly matched for this offense. He caught 7-of-7 targets for 59 yards and rushed four times for 41 yards. Harvin also returned three kickoffs.
Marshawn Lynch, RBHot9/4/2014 11:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch opened the 2014 NFL regular season with a bang - rushing for 110 yards and two scores.
Insight: Lynch is tough enough to bring down, but when the Seahawks used Percy Harvin as a decoy it frequently left Lynch with plenty of running room.
Jeremy Lane, CB9/4/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane left Thursday night's game with a groing injury.
Insight: Lane primarily works in the nickel coverage. Given the Packers are well behind, they are likely to use three- and four-receiver sets meaning backup Marcus Burley should get tested.
Christine Michael, RB9/3/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Christine Michael (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's season opener, according to coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: The second-year back went into training camp with a ton of buzz, but Marshawn Lynch remains the workhorse after resolving his contract issues and Robert Turbin will be his backup.
Christine Michael, RB9/1/2014 4:38:00 PM
Description: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that running back Christine Michael (hamstring) is "banged up," according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Michael is iffy for the season opener. The second-year back went into training camp with a ton of buzz, but Marshawn Lynch remains the workhorse after resolving his contract issues and Michael may still be behind Robert Turbin on the depth chart.
Terrelle Pryor, QB8/29/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have released quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
Insight: Tarvis Jackson beat him out for the backup job behind Russell Wilson. Pryor should have many suitors with his unique physical ability. He completed 21-of-39 passes for 281 yards, one touchdown and two picks. He also ran for 97 yards and a touchdown.
Marshawn Lynch, RB8/11/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: According to the Seattle Times, police officers are investigating Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch after receiving an "allegation of an assault and personal property damage" from a female victim at an apartment in Bellevue, Washington.
Insight: Police said the alleged incident was reported to have occurred Sunday morning, but "no domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation." Lynch has had several run-ins with the law since he came into the NFL in 2007 -- his driver's license was revoked in 2008 for a hit-and-run incident, he was arrested during a traffic stop for having a gun in his trunk in 2009 and he was arrested again in 2012 for suspicion of DUI. He was suspended the first three games of 2009 by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for the second incident.
Marshawn Lynch, RB8/10/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: According to the Seattle Times, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Marshawn Lynch is "in really good shape."
Insight: Lynch skipped OTAs, minicamp and the first week of training camp, so it's good to see he's remained in shape. Carroll said the running back has dropped a little weight. Lynch was reportedly the most active he has been in camp during Sunday's practice. While Christine Michael is a threat to steal carries, Lynch is still an RB1.
Kevin Norwood, WR8/8/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Rookie wide receiver Kevin Noorwood is out indefinitely after having a bone spur removed from his foot.
Insight: It was going to be a struggle for Norwood to make the 53-man roster even if healthy. Fantasy owners can ignore him.
Christine Michael, RB8/8/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin started the preseason opener, but we continue to believe second-year running back Christine Michael will be the handcuff for Marshawn Lynch.
Insight: Michael rushed seven times for 16 yards and caught three balls for 12 yards while Turbin rushed for just five yards on four carries.
Michael Bowie, OT8/2/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have apparently waived injured OT Michael Bowie.
Insight: Bowie's shoulder injury is expected to require season-ending surgery, but could another team could scoop him up and hold him for next season. He made nine starts for the Super Bowl champions last season.
Marshawn Lynch, RB7/31/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Seahawks agreed to raise Marshawn Lynch's base salary for 2014 from $5 million to $6 million and give him a $500,000 signing bonus.
Insight: Lynch had no leverage to get a new contract, but he ended up getting something out of his holdout. That should tell fantasy owners that the Seahawks still consider Lynch a big part of the equation and wanted to get him in camp as quickly as possible. Lynch isn't going to see 337 touches again like he did last year, but he'll still be heavily involved. Three hundred touches plus all the goal-line work will keep Lynch in the RB1 group.
Marshawn Lynch, RB7/31/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch has decided to end his holdout, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Insight: Lynch had absolutely no leverage to get a new contract. He's already set to earn $5.5 million in salary and bonuses this season and the Seahawks have potential star Christine Michael behind him. Lynch isn't going to see 337 touches again like he did last year, but he'll still be heavily involved. Three hundred touches plus all the goal-line work will keep Lynch in the RB1 group.
Marshawn Lynch, RB7/24/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is now expected to hold out while he seeks a new contract.
Insight: Sounds like Lynch got a look at the Jamaal Charles deal and wants to get a bigger and better deal too. Lynch has been worked hard the past three seasons (901 carries) and is smart to want to get a deal done now before anything changes.
Sidney Rice, WR7/23/2014 4:08:00 PM
Description: Seattle receiver Sidney Rice has retired due to a history of concussions, according to ProFootballTalk.
Insight: The 27-year-old had one huge season -- 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns on 83 catches in 2009 with the Minnesota Vikings -- but hasn't been able to stay healthy. His other six seasons, he averaged 10.8 games, 26.67 catches, 380 yards and 3.67 touchdowns.
Marshawn Lynch, RB7/16/2014 4:25:00 PM
Description: Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times predicts Marshawn Lynch will still be the focal point of the Seahawks' offense in 2014 but that he'll lose a few carries per game to Christine Michael.
Insight: Lynch averaged 18.8 carries per game last season and Condotta predicts he'll be around 15-16 this year which will put him at 240-256 for the entire season. Lynch will still get all the goal-line work so he shouldn't drop out of the first round in fantasy drafts.
Marshawn Lynch, RB6/17/2014 6:24:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch arrived to mandatory minicamp Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Insight: Lynch didn't show up to voluntary OTAs because he wants to rework his contract and there was even a report from Rapoport last week that he was mulling retirement. According to ESPN, Lynch believes the Seahawks will negotiate with him in good faith because he showed up to minicamp. With Seattle OC Darrell Bevell mentioning that he wanted to use a committee at running back this season and a contract dispute looming, Lynch could be a riskier pick than expected in fantasy leagues.
Marshawn Lynch, RB6/12/2014 8:44:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch isn't happy about his contract situation and is considering sitting out next week's mandatory mini-camp.
Insight: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport even said retirement could be an option for Lynch. This would be a massive blow to the Seahawks and fantasy owners alike. Lynch logged 1,257 yards on 301 carries last season while leading Seattle to its first Super Bowl. He's only 28.
Marshawn Lynch, RB6/10/2014 8:14:00 PM
Description: Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said last week that the team would use a "running back by committee" in 2014, but he backtracked from that comment Monday, according to beat writer John Boyle.
Insight: Bevell said he meant that he would be using a committee in OTAs rather than during the season. Marshawn Lynch has handled an average of 329 touches the last three seasons but may drop to 285 this year as the team gets 2013 second-round pick Christine Michael more involved.
Christine Michael, RB6/10/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: We believe Seahawks second-year running back Christine Michael should overtake Robert Turbin for the backup role to Marshawn Lynch.
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 more explosive option/handcuff than Robert Turbin.
Bruce Irvin, DE6/3/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Seahawks DE/LB Bruce Irvin had a hip procedure, but tweeted that he should be ready for training camp, according to beat writer Bob Condotta.
Insight: The Seattle linebacking corps, once a weakness, is deep and talented, so Irvin will have to be completely healthy if he wants to start this season. He missed four games due to a suspension in 2013 and wasn't much of a factor in the Seahawks Super Bowl run.
Doug Baldwin, WR5/29/2014 8:13:00 PM
Description: Doug Baldwin's new deal with the Seahawks will pay him $13 million over the next three seasons. SOURCE: Louis Riddick, ESPN
Insight: The hope is that Baldwin will be a good complement to starters Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin. With that said, the Seahawks are a run-first team, which means we wouldn't expect Baldwin to exceed the 73 targets he saw in 2013.
Doug Baldwin, WR5/23/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks and Doug Baldwin are discussing terms on a new contract extension. SOURCE: John Boyle, Everett Herald
Insight: Baldwin caught all five passes that came his way in Seattle's Super Bowl victory over Denver. With Golden Tate out of the picture (he signed a five-year deal with the Lions), Baldwin could be in for a breakout season in 2014.
Marshawn Lynch, RB5/22/2014 8:47:00 PM
Description: Despite logging 300+ carries in each of his last two seasons, the Seahawks have no plans to reduce Marshawn Lynch's workload in 2014. SOURCE: Seahawks.com
Insight: Lynch has shown a remarkable level of resilience the last few seasons but eventually the huge workload is bound to catch up with him. Hopefully that doesn't happen in 2014 but fantasy owners need to be prepared.
Paul Richardson, WR5/9/2014 8:44:00 PM
Description: The Seattle Seahawks took WR Paul Richardson with the 45th-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Insight: The 6-0, 175-pounder out of Colorado was projected to go later in the draft. He'll serve as a deep threat for Seattle.
Richard Sherman, CB5/7/2014 4:16:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have signed cornerback Richard Sherman to a four-year, $57.4 million contract extension.
Insight: The deal makes him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. The 26-year-old former fifth-round pick deserves it. He's amassed 20 interceptions in three seasons while frequently locking down the opposing team's No. 1 receiver.
Richard Sherman, CB4/22/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks are close to signing All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman to a long-term contract extension. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: The two sides are hoping to have an agreement in place before the draft. The new deal should make Sherman (48 tackles, eight INT in 2013) the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.
Terrelle Pryor, QB4/21/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: The Raiders have traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seahawks for a seventh-round pick. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: With Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson ahead of him on the QB depth chart, it's doubtful Pryor will see any playing time next season. After how he performed with Oakland in 2013 (7 TD, 11 INT in 11 games) that might be for the best.
Sidney Rice, WR4/17/2014 9:03:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have re-signed receiver Sidney Rice.
Insight: They brought him back on a one-year deal earlier this week. Rice could have a bigger role this season now that Golden Tate has moved on to play for the Lions. Of course, he'll need to get healthy first. Rice missed the second half of last season because of a torn ACL and isn't a lock for Week 1.
Kam Chancellor, SS3/25/2014 8:56:00 PM
Description: Seattle Pro Bowl safety Kam Chancellor needs hip surgery. SOURCE: John Clayton, ESPN
Insight: The procedure doesn't sound too serious. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks in his recovery, Chancellor (99 tackles, three interceptions in 2013) should be all systems go for Week 1.
Steven Hauschka, K3/17/2014 1:24:00 PM
Description: Seahawks place-kicker Steven Hauschka has been signed to a three-year deal, reports Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Hauschka was 33-of-35 (94.3 percent) last season, including 3-of-3 from 50 yards-or-more. Since becoming the Seahawks full-time place-kicker in 2011, he's improved his success rate in each season and is one of the best in the game.
Michael Bennett, DE3/10/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: Defensive end Michael Bennett took less money to stay with the Seahawks. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
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.
Michael Bennett, DE3/6/2014 7:05:00 PM
Description: Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is going to test the open market. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Bennett had been in discussions with Seattle about a new contract but now it appears he'll become a free agent instead. He led the Seahawks with 8.5 sacks in 2013.
Brandon Browner, CB3/5/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Free agent cornerback Brandon Browner has been suspended for the first four games of next season.
Insight: So much for his reinstatement. This ban is connected to Browner's violation of the league's drug policy. This could make teams hesitant to sign Browner in free agency.
Brandon Browner, CB3/4/2014 8:17:00 PM
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.
Sidney Rice, WR2/21/2014 8:28:00 PM
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.
Marshawn Lynch, RB2/20/2014 9:24:00 PM
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.
Golden Tate, WR2/6/2014 9:11:00 PM
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.
Sidney Rice, WR2/4/2014 8:49:00 PM
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.
Russell Wilson, QB2/4/2014 7:00:00 PM
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.
Doug Baldwin, WR1/30/2014 12:19:00 PM
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.
Marshawn Lynch, RB1/30/2014 12:12:00 PM
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.
Richard Sherman, CB1/25/2014 11:30:00 AM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/24/2014 6:50:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin won't have any restrictions when he plays next Sunday in Super Bowl XLVIII. SOURCE: Liz Mathews, ESPN 710
Insight: Harvin missed the NFC Championship Game with a concussion. He'll be shadowed by either Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie or Champ Bailey in the Super Bowl.
Percy Harvin, WR1/22/2014 7:52:00 PM
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.
Doug Baldwin, WR1/21/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin is dealing with a hip injury which may limit his practice time, but won't keep him out of the big game, according to Seahawks reporter Curtis Crabtree.
Insight: The player called it a "bruise." Baldwin is a sure-handed receiver, though if Percy Harvin returns he becomes the third guy behind Harvin and Golden Tate.
Percy Harvin, WR1/20/2014 9:26:00 AM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/17/2014 4:15:00 PM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/17/2014 12:55:00 PM
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.
K.J. Wright, LB1/17/2014 12:50:00 PM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/16/2014 9:08:00 PM
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.
K.J. Wright, LB1/16/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright (foot surgery) returned to the practice field on Wednesday and is questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship against San Francisco.
Insight: While Seattle has been able to withstand injuries to the secondary, they aren't as deep at linebacker and his return could improve their run defense. He hasn't played since Dec. 8.
Percy Harvin, WR1/16/2014 9:30:00 AM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/13/2014 9:46:00 AM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/11/2014 7:48:00 PM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/9/2014 8:12:00 PM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR1/6/2014 1:38:00 PM
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin reportedly was a full participant in Friday's practice and with a full week more, should be ready to go in the Divisional matchup against New Orleans.
Insight: Barring injury it looks like he'll be ready to contribute. Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin will have reduced roles when Russell Wilson gets his most talented receiver back.
Percy Harvin, WR12/31/2013 2:35:00 PM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR12/30/2013 9:11:00 PM
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.
Percy Harvin, WR12/29/2013 10:54:00 AM
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.
