Russell Wilson - QBPosted 3/17/19 9:45am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson told late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon on Friday, March 15, that there's 'great potential' for Wilson to eventually become the highest-paid player in NFL history. Meanwhile, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has said this offseason that negotiations are 'ongoing' with Wilson, whose contract expires after the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Wilson threw for a career-high 35 TD passes last season on only 427 attempts -- his lowest single-season total since his second pro season in 2013. Meanwhile, Wilson rushed for 376 yards -- the second-lowest single-season total of his career -- while failing to rush for a TD for the first time in seven seasons. Expect some regression to the mean in both categories in 2019, and that still adds up to another QB1 campaign for Wilson.
Jason Myers - PKPosted 3/13/19 10:54am ET
New York Jets impending free-agent PK Jason Myers agreed to a four-year deal worth $15-16 million with the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Myers was one of the most consistent kickers in the league last year and one of the few bright spots for the Jets. He fills a need on a good offense and can be drafted as a PK1.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 3/11/19 3:54pm ET
Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent RB Mike Davis will sign an undisclosed contract with the Chicago Bears, according to a source.
Huddle Up: There is a decent chance Davis has a meaningful role in 2019, provided the unknown contract details bear out. He could be in line to replace RB Jordan Howard as a complement to the explosive Tarik Cohen, since it has been no secret Chicago is looking to move on from Howard. If this ends up being the case, Davis is a No. 3 back with more value in standard scoring than PPR.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 3/1/19 9:51am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is expected to attend spring training with the New York Yankees for only a day or two, but it won't be as long as last season's six-day stint, a Seahawks beat reporter said Friday, March 1.
Huddle Up: Wilson finished as a top-12 fantasy QB for the seventh time in seven seasons in 2018 but had a strange statistical year throwing a career-high 35 TD passes while failing to rush for one for the first time as a pro and posting the third-lowest passing yardage total (3,448) of his career. Average it out, though, and he remains a bona fide QB1 option in drafts.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 2/28/19 11:09am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee, shoulder) underwent surgery on his ailing knee and shoulder this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. He is rehabilitating and is expected to be ready for the regular season.
Huddle Up: Baldwin was hampered by injuries throughout the 2018 season but "only" missed three games. He was a shell of himself mainly due to not being at full health and Tyler Lockett's emergence. If he does make a full recovery he can still be drafted as a WR2.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 2/28/19 6:23pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will be given the chance to push for more playing time in 2019, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Penny battled injuries throughout his rookie season, but he showed some burst when he was on the field, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. A committee between Penny and Chris Carson is likely on tap in 2019, but Penny has the better long-term upside for keeper leagues.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 2/28/19 6:29pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson and RB Rashaad Penny could form a 'one-two punch' in the backfield in 2019, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: After finishing fifth in the NFL in rushing last year, Carson figures to have the first chance to lead the backfield, but Penny's role should only grow. Carson could still have RB2 potential, but grabbing Penny as a handcuff would be a wise move.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 2/21/19 9:10am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was rumored Wednesday, Feb. 20, as possible option for the New York Giants due to his wife's preference to live in the Big Apple. But one Giants beat writer has broken down why the Wilson-Giants rumors are a real long shot to become reality, including Seattle's hefty return asking price in a trade and Wilson's franchise-QB pricetag compared with the relatively low cost of drafting a quarterback in the first round.
Huddle Up: Wilson was the one of the few pillars the Seahawks decided to keep during their roster purge of the past few seasons, and now that they have a surplus of cap space to work with, look for Wilson to get a new contract soon and have the team build around him.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 2/15/19 7:33pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will take 'control of the backfield' during spring and summer workouts, in the opinion of Dan Graziano of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Once Penny was finally healthy, he actually performed well, averaging 4.9 yards per carry as a rookie. It remains to be seen if he can overtake Chris Carson, but as much as Seattle ran the ball in 2018, Penny should at least be a viable flex option next season.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 2/3/19 12:05pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not started contract extension talks with the team at this point, according to sources. Wilson is entering the final year of his contract.
Huddle Up: Wilson likely will receive an extension at some point this offseason and should be with the Seahawks for many more years. He threw for 3,448 yards and 35 touchdowns in 2018 and also added 376 rushing yards. The Seahawks have become more of a running team, but Wilson can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/10/19 9:59am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will attend spring training with the New York Yankees for the second straight year, his MLB agent Mark Rodgers said Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Not your usual NFL offseason hobby but just a hobby nonetheless for fantasy's 10th-ranked QB, who ranked second in the league with a 8.2 touchdown-pass percentage.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/7/19 4:48pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin likely will be back with the Seahawks next season even though he dealt with multiple injuries in 2018.
Huddle Up: Baldwin was limited to 13 games because of injuries this season and finished with 618 yards and five touchdowns. He should be the top option in the passing game for the Seahawks if he returns and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/7/19 4:41pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will be a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Wilson saw a dip in his passing yards this season but posted a career-high 35 passing touchdowns. He will continue to be one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL next season and should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 1/5/19 8:54pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 13 times for 20 yards and lost a yard on two receptions in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Carson topped 1,000 yards as the headliner of Seattle's top-ranked rushing attack, but he couldn't find any room against the tough Dallas defense. Rashaad Penny will likely take on a larger role in 2019, but RB2 production isn't out of the question for Carson.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/5/19 8:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Russell Wilson completed 18 of his 27 passes for 233 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 14 yards and a score in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Wilson's comeback attempt came up just short. Even with Seattle shifting to a run-heavy approach this year, Wilson tossed a career-high 35 touchdowns. He will remain a QB1 candidate in 2019.
Tyler Lockett - WRPosted 1/5/19 9:02pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught four of six targets for 120 yards in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: As has been the case all year, Lockett did his damage on big plays. He was one of the more dangerous deep threats this season, and he should be a high-risk, high-reward WR3 in 2019.
Rashaad Penny - RBPosted 1/5/19 8:59pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny rushed four times for 29 yards in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Thanks to Dallas shutting down Chris Carson, Penny actually led the team in rushing in the loss. Still, the rookie was one of the bigger fantasy busts this year. He should have a chance to carve out a bigger role in 2019, but with Carson impressing, a committee is probably the best-case scenario for Penny.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/5/19 9:08pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin caught three of his six targets for 32 yards in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Baldwin's lackluster season came to a quiet end, but he battled a nagging knee issue from the beginning. Assuming he is healthier for 2019, he could be sneaky rebound pick for fantasy owners.
Tyler Lockett - WRPosted 1/4/19 10:53am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught 57 of his 70 targets from Russell Wilson in 2018. Lockett was not charged with a single drop pass and his average reception was caught 13 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. The Wilson-to-Lockett duo was also 14-of-17 on passes thrown at least 20 yards downfield, according to Sports Info Solutions.
Huddle Up: As it relates to this weekend's playoff game against the Chicago Bears, Lockett runs into the defense that allowed 23 percent of downfield passes (at least 20 yards) to be completed - lowest in the league. As it relates to his fantasy prospects for 2019, Lockett is a prime candidate for touchdown and efficiency regression. Owners should view this season as his ceiling and what can happen when everything falls into place for him, but chances are Lockett will be no better than a WR3 next season.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/3/19 3:42pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) was upgraded at practice Thursday, Jan. 3, getting in a full session.
Huddle Up: His status for Saturday night's action in Dallas isn't even listed either, meaning he'll be good to go for the team's Wild Card playoff game. Baldwin was closer to his normal output in the season's latter weeks following a disappointing first half, but his overall inconsistency in 2018 might make him hard to rely on this weekend from a fantasy perspective.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 1/3/19 3:40pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was upgraded to being a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: This was the plan all along after Carson sat out practice Tuesday and got in a limited session Wednesday. Although he'll be facing a quality defense in the Wild Card Round, Carson is one of the best RB1 weapons to deploy in all fantasy formats this weekend.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 1/3/19 3:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (foot) fully practiced Thursday, Jan. 3, one day after he was a limited participant.
Huddle Up: Davis will be out there come Saturday but it remains to be seen how much action he'll get. Carson is locked in as the undisputed RB1 from the Seattle backfield, leaving not much for Davis to sink his teeth into. Thus, he's not a recommended play in any fantasy games this weekend.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 1/2/19 4:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis (foot) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Davis is going to play but despite recording his first touchdown in months in last week's season finale against the Cardinals, he's not someone you'll want to enlist from the postseason slate. This is clearly Chris Carson's backfield while he's healthy, leaving Davis only limited work in a tough first-round draw.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/2/19 4:48pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Jan. 2, and was a limited participant.
Huddle Up: Despite battling injuries seemingly all year, Baldwin should be available for the team's Wild Card Round game. The 30-year-old finally began to get into a groove at the end of the campaign, hauling in four touchdown catches in the last four games, but his inconsistency throughout the season makes him a little hard to trust in a tough matchup.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 1/2/19 4:45pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was limited at practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: The club is just managing their workhorse tailback's reps, as Carson even sat out Tuesday's practice. He'll be one of the top RB1 options to roll with this weekend, especially given the hot streak he's on entering the playoffs. Carson compiled 447 yards on the ground to go with five touchdowns in the season's final four games.
Tyler Lockett - WRPosted 12/31/18 12:16am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett hauled in both of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Lockett finishes the regular season with 57 catches for 965 yards and 10 touchdowns - all career highs. While some of his production was the result of Doug Baldwin being less than 100 percent for much of the season, Russell Wilson clearly trusts him to make plays. Lockett will be a bit of a risky option in playoff leagues and is bound to see some touchdown regression in 2019, but he'll be worth a look as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 in drafts next summer.
Mike Davis - RBPosted 12/31/18 12:43am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Mike Davis ran seven times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals. He added two catches for 12 more yards.
Huddle Up: Despite Rashaad Penny being active after missing the last two games due to injury, Davis ran as Chris Carson's primary backup and performed well once again. Were it not for the fact Seattle spends a first-round pick on Penny this spring, Davis would be the clear handcuff for the foreseeable future. As it is, that job is a week-to-week proposition. As the passing-down back on a running team with an uncertain early-down role, Davis can be ignored in playoff leagues.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 12/31/18 12:28am ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin caught two of his five targets for 27 yards in Week 17 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Baldwin's three-game touchdown streak came to an end, and he finishes injury-plagued 2018 season with 50 receptions for 618 yards and five touchdowns. He probably has the best matchup of any Seattle receiver in next week's road playoff matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has shown a concerning floor this season to go along with a bit of an unpredictable ceiling. After being considered a fringe WR1 in redraft leagues this summer, he'll be more of a WR3 option in 2019.
Chris Carson - RBPosted 12/30/18 10:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson ran for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Week 17 versus the Arizona Cardinals. He added one catch for seven yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Carson will take a three-game streak of rushing for at least 100 yards and a touchdown on the road next week to face the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the playoffs. The former seventh-round pick emerged as a force this season and should get a shot to run his 100-yard streak to four games in a battle of two teams who will try to beat the other up on the ground. He's a solid option in playoff leagues but could be a risky RB2 in redraft next summer with 2018 first-rounder Rashaad Penny likely to push for more work.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 12/30/18 11:30pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson finished 12-of-21 for 152 yards and a touchdown along with an interception. Wilson was also sacked six times and lost two yards on two rushing attempts.
Huddle Up: Wilson ends the season with a personal best 35 touchdown passes while attempting the third-fewest passes of his career (427). Somewhat amazingly, he reached that number despite taking a career-high 51 sacks and not having a healthy Doug Baldwin at his disposal for over half the year. Wilson will be a middling option in playoff leagues next week on the road against the Dallas Cowboys, but he should be viewed as a very solid QB1 option in redraft leagues next season.
