Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0%) would likely split repetitions in the backfield if Jackson is able to play. While both are relatively cheap, better value can be found at running back.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) could return to practice next week on Wednesday, Oct. 14, but the Seahawks want him to be at 100%. Lycnh is dealing with tissue damage in his strained hamstring and has been ruled out for Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should see the majority of playing time this week out of Seattle's backfield, unless Fred Jackson ($2,000, 4.0%) is good to go. Jackson is cheaper, but he's questionable with an ankle injury. Neither are great plays; there are better FantasyScore options at running back.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Fred Jackson (ankle) will test his injury Sunday, Oct. 11, in the morning, and the team is optimistic he will be ready for the road game in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a risky FantasyScore play, as even if he is able to suit up his workload will not be nearly as much as that for Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap), who is averaging 4.5 yards per carry this season.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) will miss consecutive games for the first time since he joined the team in 2010. Head coach Pete Carroll said Lynch has a hamstring strain with some tissue damage.
Fantasy Tip: With Lynch on the shelf and Fred Jackson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) questionable with an ankle injury, expect to see a heavy dose of starter Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in Week 5 against the unbeaten Cincinnati Bengals.

Seattle Seahawks CB Marcus Burley (hand) and CB Tharold Simon (toe) have been ruled out for Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals. DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) and CB Tye Smith (hip) are doubtful, while WR Ricardo Lockette (illness), DT Brandon Mebane (groin) and S Steven Terrell (hip) are probable. Dobbs, Smith, Simon, Burley and Pierre-Louis didn't practice Friday, Oct. 9. Mebane, Lockette and Terrell were full participants.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has missed a lot of practice time this week because of the injury, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Owners may want to consider other options because Jackson has not done a lot this season.
Fri, 09 Oct 2015 13:18:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) may see a lot of playing time in Week 5 because of the Lynch's ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) injury. Rawls has had some success in the past and could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore. Fred Jackson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) may be able to play but he is also dealing with an injury.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has gained 135 of his 177 rushing yards this year on scrambles. He's been sacked 18 times through four games, which is tied for the most in the league. Seattle continues to look for ways to better protect their quarterback, but Wilson said he is physically fine. "I try to take care of my body," Wilson said. "I feel great today. I feel 100%. That's what you work out for all offseason, get ready for. I should have played tennis then otherwise. I'm expected to get hit every once in awhile. You go in there, and mentally you have to be ready for a physical game, and that's how we play football."
Fantasy Tip: Wilson's ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) elite scrambling ability and his ability to extend plays out of nothing are a few of the reasons why he's in a firm spot to be a solid QB1 for fantasy owners this year. However, with a shaky offensive line, it could continue to be a struggle for him to put up points. The Bengals should give him fits in the backfield, making him a shaky daily pick on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals have been stingy on the ground, so even a limited Lynch ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is not an attractive daily option. Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could see the majority of backfield work again even if Beast Mode plays, but even he isn't a safe pick on FantasyScore against Cincy this weekend.

Seattle Seahawks DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder), CB Tye Smith (hip), CB Tharold Simon (toe), CB Marcus Burley (hand) and LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 8. DT Brandon Mebane (groin), WR Ricardo Lockette (illness) and FS Steven Terrell (hip) fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has not practiced at this point, so he may not be able to play in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Thomas Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could have a solid role on offense in Week 5 and could be a solid starting option if Jackson and Marshawn Lynch does not play.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 17:47:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lynch ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) could be a game-time decision for the Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Owners should continue to monitor the situation to have a better idea on his status. Owners may want a backup plan ready in case Lynch is not able to play.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is part of an offense that offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell wants to see everyone involved in. "We're doing everything we can to try to get everybody involved in the offense," Bevell said. "We want Jimmy to catch balls, I know you'll probably ask me that every week. We want him involved, we want him to catch balls, there's a lot of things that we ask him to do, whether it's catching, whether it's blocking, whether it's being a decoy. You can just go on and on, and we expect him to do it the best that he can."
Fantasy Tip: Graham ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) is a hit-or-miss option on FantasyScore right now, and his matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals isn't a good one. However, he's so talented that he could break out with three scores. The question is: are you willing to risk that price tag on it this week?
