Seahawks | First-team offense to play past half

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:31:08 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the rest of the first-team offense is expected to play at least one series into the third quarter in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell confirmed Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Third preseason games are when fantasy owners fret the most, because their early draft picks are exposed to injury for much more playing time in a meaningless game than in the first two exhibition games, or certainly the fourth. Hold your breath and hope Wilson and the rest of the Seattle starters make it out unscathed.

Seahawks | Teammates talk up Christine Michael

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 18:16:34 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has learned how to use his speed, according to QB Russell Wilson, and FS Earl Thomas said the game has "slowed down" for Michael. C Justin Britt said the "whole building" can see Michael's work ethic and determination.

Fantasy Tip: Michael is having a strong preseason, and it seems increasingly likely he will be given a chance to prove his worth in the regular season. He has loads of potential, and he is worth taking a chance on as a RB4.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 21:26:19 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin remains the clear No. 2 quarterback behind QB Russell Wilson, but general manager John Schneider said he is keeping an eye on the quarterbacks who become available during training camp.

Seahawks | Trevone Boykin remains No. 2 for now

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:51:14 -0700

Seattle Seahawks rookie QB Trevone Boykin remains the team's primary backup to starter QB Russell Wilson, but beat writer Sheil Kapadia says don't be surprised to see the team add a veteran sometime in August.

Fantasy Tip: Boykin was a dual-threat option at Texas Christian University, but he is a project and not expected to take over anytime soon as long as Russell Wilson is in the mix. At this point, Boykin's fantasy appeal even in long-term keeper formats is rather minimal.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson elite with protection

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 12:36:57 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led all quarterbacks in Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) last season when he was adequately protected, according to Football Outsiders. DVOA measures efficiency by comparing success on every play to the league average based on situation and opponent. Wilson was solid under pressure, too, ranking fourth in DVOA among quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks may not need to pass as much as they did last season, especially late last season. Wilson is still a top-tier fantasy quarterback option, though, especially with his running ability.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson has made strides

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:31:08 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has made a clear step ahead this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. "His command is all-time. His ability to move defenders with his eyes to set up some things, he's consistently doing that, almost unconsciously, he's so clued in," Carroll said. "We saw him throw the ball all over the field throughout the offseason and he's been strong and accurate and really precise about stuff. He has had a great offseason."

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is one of the better dual-threat quarterbacks in the league right now. He should be at least one of the first five quarterbacks taken in fantasy drafts.

Seahawks | Change in offense aided Russell Wilson

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 21:50:38 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw 24 touchdowns and one interception in the last seven games after the offense shifted to emphasize quicker passes, timing routes and spread formations. He was sacked 31 times in the first seven games and just 15 times in the last nine games as getting rid of the ball quickly helped negate struggles on the offensive line. Head coach Pete Carroll said to expect more of that in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has always had Marshawn Lynch as a security blanket. Thomas Rawls impressed in a short window before breaking his ankle, but he isn't a sure thing like Beast Mode was. Wilson will have more responsibility on his shoulders to move the offense. He's a midrange option at the position in fantasy.

Seahawks | Trevone Boykin could be backup

Thu, 12 May 2016 15:47:15 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin has a good shot at earning the backup quarterback position behind QB Russell Wilson, with only QB Jake Heaps with whom to compete. Head coach Pete Carroll thinks Boykin's style of play fits well with Seattle's offense and is similar to Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Boykin does have an enticing skill set, but he won't have any fantasy value even if he earns the backup position as long as Russell Wilson is healthy.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson working with receivers

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 11:02:04 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and WRs Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson have been working out together at the University of Southern California.

Fantasy Tip: It's always encouraging when quarterbacks and wide receivers work together during the offseason. Lockett definitely has more upside than Richardson and is one of the more promising young deep threats in the NFL. Doug Baldwin, Lockett and Jermain Kearse figure to be Seattle's top three wide receivers. It's safer to stay away from Richardson for now.
