Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham said the priority of blocking is on par with making receptions in his new offense. "It's very important for me to be a part of that here because that's about 75 percent of the offense here and if you have a back like (Marshawn Lynch), you want to be in there on those explosive runs and you want to be part of that," Graham said. "Third-and-10 is when I'm going to make my money, and that's when I'm going to have to be special for this team."
Fantasy Tip: Graham's numbers are expected to fall short of the astronomical years he had in New Orleans. However, he's still in the elite tier at the position and should continue to be a beast in the red zone. He probably shouldn't be taken in the first round this year, though.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is talking with the Seahawks about a contract extension, but the two sides may not reach an agreement before the start of training camp, according to sources. The two sides do not appear to be in agreement about the amount of money up front or the guaranteed money.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson is not expected to hold out if he does not receive an extension, so he will play this season. Wilson has the ability to produce as a passer as well as a runner, which gives him an advantage over other quarterbacks. He should be a solid starting option in all leagues.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and his representatives have issues with the guaranteed money involved in his current offer. Still, Wilson hasn't turned the deal down yet. If both sides don't agree to a new deal soon, Wilson and the Seahawks will have to wait until after the season to try to get a deal done.
Fantasy Tip: It would be better for both parties to get a deal done before training camp starts. Wilson has said he will stay focused on the game this season even if an extension isn't reached. He's one of the most versatile quarterbacks in the NFL and should be drafted as a top-five fantasy quarterback.
