Seattle Seahawks WR B.J. Daniels, formerly a quarterback in college, has been working at wide receiver and kick returner in organized team activities (OTAs). Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell confirmed Tuesday, June 2, that Daniels is a receiver and not a quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: Itís uncertain how far Daniels will make it up the depth chart, but he is a story worth watching during training camp and the preseason. He could get a chance to crack one of the top four receiver spots, and he will certainly see time on special teams.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is coming off a season in which he gained over 4,300 total yards and totaled 26 touchdowns en route to another Super Bowl appearance. Deal or no deal, Wilson is an unquestioned fantasy QB1 with his dual-threat ability.

Updating an ongoing story, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's agent Mark Rodgers said contract negotiations are positive and encouraging, adding there is no deadline to finalize a deal, during an interview with 710 ESPN radio in Seattle. Regarding the reported philosophical differences between the two sides, Rodgers said, "95% of the speculation has been off point."
Fantasy Tip: RW3 is going to be a Seahawk for the long haul ... it's just a matter of for how long and at what cost to the team. Fantasy owners should consider him a borderline top-five fantasy passer entering summer draft season.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch does not need to participate in the offseason workouts and should be ready for the start of training camp. Lynch has been very consistent over the last four years and should be a first-round option in most leagues next season.

Fantasy Tip: Lockett could have a role in the passing game this season, but owners should see how he is used during training camp and preseason games. Lockett could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he receives solid playing time.

Seattle Seahawks WR Chris Matthews may be the favorite to win the No. 3 wide receiver job with his favorable size and wingspan, according to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling. WRs Paul Richardson, Kevin Norwood and Tyler Lockett should also be in the mix.
Fantasy Tip: Matthews quickly made a name for himself in the Super Bowl and showed he deserves his fair share of playing time. Richardson will probably be Matthews' main competition for the No. 3 job this offseason behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Whoever wins the job will be no more than a WR5.

The Seattle Seahawks' offensive starters will make $35,826,746 in 2015, according to spotrac.com. That's the fourth-lowest total in the league behind only the Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Tip: Russell Wilson is making under $2 million, so he'll be due for a new contract in the near future. Most of the team's salary cap is allocated to its stalwart defense, and there aren't a lot of playmakers (other than Wilson) besides Jimmy Graham and Marshawn Lynch.
