Seahawks | Russell Wilson impressed with WR speed

Tue, 03 Jun 2014 16:51:09 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is impressed with the speed of the team's receiving corps, especially thanks to the addition of WR Paul Richardson, who the team drafted this year. "Yeah, our receivers right now are as fast as it gets. You've got Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse is extremely fast too. Then you add Paul Richardson who you saw today went for that deep, deep ball that I threw to him. He's looking exceptional as well. So I think our receiver group is probably one of the faster in the league right now, based on who we have."

Fantasy Tip: Don't be fooled now that Seattle has more wideout depth in 2014; the Seahawks remain a run-first squad. Richardson will have to battle for playing time behind Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin, and he probably won't have a significant enough role to be worth a draft pick this fall.

Seahawks | Percy Harvin looked good

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 09:40:44 -0800

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) had a 58-yard kickoff return and an impressive 17-yard catch to keep a touchdown drive alive in his season debut in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. WR Jermaine Kearse (concussion) had a concussion in the first quarter, forcing Harvin into kick-return duties after head coach Pete Carroll said he didn't want Harvin returning kicks in his first game back.

Fantasy Tip: Harvin's playing time was limited, as expected, and he caught the only pass that was thrown his way in the game. Expected his limited involvement to continue for at least a few more games. Until we see his snaps and targets go up, he'll be a risky play.

Seahawks | Percy Harvin ruled out

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 09:11:21 -0700

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Percy won't play this week," Carroll said. "He's getting close, but not close enough." The team has two weeks to activate Harvin from the Physically Unable to Perform list. WR Jermaine Kearse will start this weekend.

Seahawks | Percy Harvin unlikely for Week 9

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 11:03:55 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and remains day-to-day as for when the team will activate him from the Physically Unable to Perform list. "We want to make sure we don't go too far too fast," head coach Pete Carroll said. "We're looking for the long haul in his recovery. We want to make sure we manage our way through that. We're being very careful. He didn't do a whole lot last week. He did very little. It seems like it's best to keep him in that mode a little longer."

Fantasy Tip: As we've noted countless times, the Seahawks are being ultra-cautious with their most dynamic offensive weapon. They are in the position not to rush him back, either, facing the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. Until he returns, expect Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin to receive more targets. Jermaine Kearse is an option in much deeper leagues.

Seahawks | Jermaine Kearse play well in preseason opener

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 11:11:18 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse posted two catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener Aug. 8, against the San Diego Chargers. He reportedly has had a good camp, and it spilled over into the game. "I had a post route, and I had some outside leverage on the defender," Kearse said. "I knew I just had to push him out, and if I could beat him I was going to be wide open. So I just widened him, slipped inside and waited for the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Kearse and Stephen Williams each scored touchdowns in the game. They're looking to move up the depth chart at a crowded position. With Percy Harvin (hip) sidelined, Kearse and Williams could possibly be the favorites for the No. 4 and 5 receiver jobs after their performance, but they have a long way to go before they're fantasy relevant.

Seahawks | Jermaine Kearse seeing clearly

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 08:52:20 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (eye) had offseason Lasik eye surgery, improving his vision in a procedure that took less than five minutes. He had worn contacts since his sophomore season in college. "I don't have to deal with the hassle of contacts," Kearse said. "I've got astigmatism, so sometimes they move around and one eye may be blurry. It's nice not to have to worry about that." Kearse has shined on special teams, and appears headed for a roster spot.

Seahawks | Battle to be heated for fifth WR job

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:59:28 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WRs Doug Baldwin, Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate are expected to be the top four wide receivers. Unless an injury or two occurs, that leaves WRs Phil Bates, Arceto Clark, Chris Harper, Greg Herd Jermaine Kearse, Brett Swain, Justin Veltung, Bryan Walters and Stephen Williams to battle it out for the fifth, and perhaps sixth, receiver job(s). The team kept five receivers last season, but could elect to keep six. Walters reportedly had a strong offseason working in the slot.
