Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is the most productive receiver out of the slot position in football this year after catching six passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns in Week 12. Baldwin leads all receivers with 662 yards in the slot, and he has the highest yards-per-catch average (14.71) among players with at least 40% of their snaps in the slot.
Fantasy Tip: With Jimmy Graham (knee) now out for the year, Baldwin ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) becomes Russell Wilson's No. 1 passing target. A matchup with the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13 isn't the best, but expect Baldwin to be a popular value pick in a flex spot because of the volume he should receive.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a completion percentage of 83.3% on throws inside the pocket the last two weeks. He has thrown for 554 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions on those throws.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has certainly improved in recent weeks, partly due to better protection from the Seahawks' offensive line. Wilson has been given more time to throw, and he's taken advantage of that. It might be hard for Wilson to keep his momentum going against a solid Minnesota Vikings defense this week, but he still shouldn't be overlooked on FantasyScore.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 30, and DT A.J. Francis was signed from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move. Graham had 48 catches for 605 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games this year for Seattle.
Fantasy Tip: Luke Willson is the primary tight end option for Russell Wilson in the absence of Graham, but he'll be too inconsistent to rely on in fantasy. After his monster game in Week 12, Doug Baldwin deserves to be owned now because he'll be more heavily relied on in the passing game.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is out for the season due to a torn patellar tendon suffered in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He needs season-ending surgery.
Fantasy Tip: With Graham down for the count, Luke Willson will be the primary tight end in Seattle again, and Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and the rest of the receivers will also be called upon to pick up the slack.

Fantasy Tip: Willson didn't do much in this one, but the team lost Jimmy Graham to what appeared to be a serious leg injury. Willson might see more targets going forward, and he could be a dirt-cheap FantasyScore option in the process.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls filled in admirably for the injured Marshawn Lynch, and will continue to do so for at least a few more weeks. He has been a reasonably priced FantasyScore options worth using regardless of the matchup.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 21 of 30 pass attempts for 345 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also ran four times for 14 yards.
Fantasy Tip: It was Wilson's first 300-yard game of the season, and after throwing 10 touchdowns in the first nine games he has eight touchdown strikes over the past two outings.

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle) posted six receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is the first Seahawks receivers with three touchdown receptions in a game since former WR Joey Galloway did it in 1997 against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Tip: Baldwin showed no ill-effects of the ankle issue which had him listed on the injury report. He has emerged as a solid WR2 or flex FantasyScore option, as he has 19 receptions for 339 yards and four scores over the past three games, posting at least six grabs in each of the outings.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (leg) suffered a lower right leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he was carted off after having his leg stabilized.
Fantasy Tip: It appeared Graham might have snapped his lower left leg, but that's speculation at this point. It certainly did not look good, and he is likely to be sidelined a while. Luke Willson will likely see more targets from the tight end position in his absence.
