Seattle Seahawks news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:13:33 -0700
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is "ready for a bigger load" against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll said Michael is ready to carry the ball "20-something times" in a game.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas Rawls looks unlikely to play, making Michael a strong RB2 with RB1 upside against a 49ers defense that allowed Fozzy Whittaker to run for 100 yards last weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson struggled in Week 2 while playing through a high-ankle sprain, and there is no way to tell how close to 100 percent he is for Week 3. He is still worth starting in standard formats against the 49ers unless you have a high-end backup, but he is a risky play in DFS formats.

Fantasy Tip: Graham was more involved in Week 2 than in Week 1, but he has yet to show he is worthy of TE1 status. Leave him on the bench against the 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: With Russell Wilson banged up and the Seahawks struggling on offense to open the year, Baldwin is a WR3 against the 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: The fact Lockett practiced in full bodes well for his chances to play, but if he does end up sitting, Jermaine Kearse would be a shot-in-the-dark flier in DFS games.

Seattle Seahawks TE Nick Vannett (ankle) and OT Germain Ifedi (ankle) were limited participants in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and are listed as doubtful for Week 3. RB C.J. Prosise (wrist) was a full participant and is listed as questionable for Week 3, and DE Cliff Avril (hamstring) was a full participant and wasn't listed on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: With third-down back C.J. Prosise listed as questionable and Russell Wilson still recovering from a high-ankle sprain, Week 3 is shaping up to be a potential breakout spot for Christine Michael. At this point, anything less than 20 touches and a high-end RB2 effort would be a disappointment for a running back who has done nothing but impress since the beginning of the summer.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's role expanded a bit in Week 2, but he still isn't producing TE1 numbers. He remains a stash candidate for now.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:45:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks are struggling to find a rhythm on offense, and Wilson's ankle sprain probably isn't helping matters. Unless you have a high-end backup, continue to start him in standard leagues, but he should be avoided in DFS formats.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:56:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Baldwin has become Seattle's go-to weapon in the passing game, and as long as the reports on his knee remain positive, he should be fine starting option against the 49ers in Week 3.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:46:44 -0700
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:45:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lockett's value depends on his ability to make big plays, and with Seattle's offense sputtering right now, he is an all-or-nothing WR3 in Week 3.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:34:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rawls is expected to be able to play in Week 3, but the injury should ensure Christine Michael continues to play a big role and has value as a flex option.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) is expected to be ready to play in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that Lockett is "on track to play" in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: Lockett had four receptions for 99 yards in Week 2, proving he can be an effective WR3 in all fantasy leagues.
Wed, 21 Sep 2016 21:39:36 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) is expected to play in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco. Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that Baldwin is "on track to play." Carroll said Baldwin's injury was a "little knee twist," and tests revealed no significant damage.
Fantasy Tip: Baldwin has been a decent low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues, but due to his health he should be treated as a WR3 in Week 3.
