  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham ready for season's start?    Thu May 26, 05:59 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) might be ready to play in Week 1 of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Graham continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon he suffered last season.

Footballguys view: The other big question is, how will they use him? Seattle was very inconsistent with his targets for a lot of the season, but when they threw a lot at him, he made plays. We're hoping that they learned their lesson and have him block less than he catches. For now we rate him as a good TE2, if he's ready to go.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls could be ready Week 1    Thu May 26, 05:51 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) may be healthy enough to play by Week 1 of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Rawls is still recovering from a fractured ankle he suffered late last year.

Footballguys view: Rawls has a lot of upside when he finally takes the field, potentially as a very good RB2. The question will be when that happens. We like him a lot, but it's going to be tough to trust him in drafts. Meanwhile, keep an eye on rookie CJ Prosise and Christine Michael, both of whom could solidify themselves as part of an RBBC or more.

  Seahawks | Richard Sherman talks Marshawn Lynch     Sun May 22, 07:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman said he wouldn't 'put anything past' retired RB Marshawn Lynch when asked if he thought Lynch could return to the NFL.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't put anything past Lynch either. He's a beat-of-a-different drummer type of guy, and Lynch pretty much does what he wants to do. No retirement papers have been filled out by Lynch, and he's been in Haiti building houses for homeless people. The Seahawks drafted three backs in the draft to go along with Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael. We won't blame you if you're in a super-deep dynasty league and want to save a roster spot for Lynch.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin talks could open soon    Fri May 20, 02:46 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is expected to have contract talks begin with the team in the near future.

Footballguys view: Baldwin will be a free agent in 2017. He is turning 28 during the season this year and will be paid four million dollars, a relative bargain. Baldwin doesn't project as a #1 elsewhere and probably would have his fantasy value preserved the best by staying in Seattle despite their low volume pass offense because he and Russell Wilson clearly have a good thing going in the red zone.

  Seahawks | Make two roster moves    Mon May 16, 05:51 PM

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin focused on hands    Mon May 16, 05:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin wants to focus on his catch rate for next season, ideally hauling in any catchable target.

Footballguys view: It will be difficult for Baldwin to duplicate the TD numbers he posted last year. Before last year, Baldwin had scored 15 TDs in four years...in 2015 he had 14 TDs. That number could be cut in half this year, and fantasy owners need to realize how Seattle is going to get back to dominating on the ground. Baldwin only dropped two passes in 2015 while catching 78 balls, 14 of which were touchdowns.

  Seahawks | More running for Seattle?    Mon May 16, 05:30 PM

Seattle Seahawks RBs Thomas Rawls, Christine Michael and C.J. Prosise could be called on early and often in 2016, according to WR Doug Baldwin. Baldwin said the Seahawks are going to go back to the run game and not pass as much this season.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks certainly emphasized the RB position in the draft by taking three players at the position. Prosise was the first of the three backs they selected, and he's a good all-purpose back who is still learning the position after starting his college career at Notre Dame as a WR. Alex Collins (Arkansas) was the team's choice in the fifth round, and we like his one-cut style, power and ability to get to the second level of the defense. Seventh-round pick Zac Brooks has good measurables but may need some development on the practice squad. Fantasy owners need to note the glut of RBs in Seattle and how that could negatively impact the production of Rawls at the top of the depth chart.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch hasn't filed papers    Thu May 12, 09:18 PM

Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch hasn't filed retirement papers, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, and he has not contacted the team about his plans for 2016.

Footballguys view: We'll see if this is Marshawn just doing his own thing or something more. If you have room on a dynasty roster, why not stash him? You never know with Lynch.

  Seahawks | Trevone Boykin could be backup    Thu May 12, 06:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin has a good shot at earning the backup quarterback position behind QB Russell Wilson, with only QB Jake Heaps with whom to compete. Head coach Pete Carroll thinks Boykin's style of play fits well with Seattle's offense and is similar to Wilson.

Footballguys view: Wilson is still the man here, and with his contract running until the end of the 2019 NFL season, that won't change but Boykin is a good safety net against serious injury as he will not require a change to the offense if Wilson is hurt.

  Seahawks | Ricardo Lockette to retire    Wed May 11, 06:29 PM

Former Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) will announce his retirement Thursday, May 12, according to a source. Lockette suffered a season-ending neck injury last season.

Footballguys view: Lockette is being smart. We wish him well in his future endeavours.

  Seahawks | Kenny Lawler has great hands    Wed May 11, 12:02 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Kenny Lawler converted 72.7% of the time on contested catches last season at California, according to NFL.com's Matt Harmon. Lawler's 4.64-second 40-yard dash time could be a big reason he fell to the seventh round in the 2016 NFL Draft. 'He had a great camp,' Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said. 'He showed us that he has a marvelous catching range. We thought he had as good of hands as anyone in the draft and felt very fortunate to get him where we did, and he had the opportunities and he showed it. He made plays down the field, made plays in traffic, running around. I think he has a big upside in terms of development.'

Footballguys view: Lawler is a thin receiver, but he clearly has good "my ball" mentality. He can make plays in the red zone, and that may be a way he stands out in camp for the Seahawks. The seventh-round pick may find himself on the 53-man roster if he proves himself during the preseason.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise used at receiver     Sun May 8, 07:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise saw reps at receiver during minicamp Sunday, May 8, and looked comfortable, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: This makes sense as Prosise was a WR in college at Notre Dame before switching to RB. He's an all-purpose back who is still learning the nuances of the RB position. At the very least, Prosise can be utilized as a receiving back on passing down.

  Seahawks | Vernon Adams hopes to join Seattle    Sat May 7, 09:37 AM

Undrafted free-agent QB Vernon Adams Jr. (Oregon) said he hopes to sign with the Seattle Seahawks after his tryout with the team this weekend. Adams will look to sign with the Washington Redskins if he is not able to win a job with the Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Adams would fit in well with the Seahawks as a developmental QB. He's built like Russell Wilson as both are shorter for the position, but Adams needs to improve his pass placement ability. He's athletic like Wilson, and Adams can easily keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield.

  Seahawks | Seattle might lock up Doug Baldwin    Fri May 6, 10:43 PM

The Seattle Seahawks might ink WR Doug Baldwin to a contract extension this offseason in an effort to free up some room under the salary cap.

Footballguys view: At this time, the Seahawks have about $10.5 million in cap space. With a few moves here and there, we could see them approach Baldwin about a long-term deal. Baldwin had his first 1,000-yard season last year and he finished the season as the 7th-best fantasy WR in standard-scoring leagues. Those 14 TDs he scored in 2015 will be difficult to duplicate; especially with TE Jimmy Graham healthy and an emerging playmaker in second-year WR Tyler Lockett.

Seattle Seahawks first-round draft choice OT Germain Ifedi agreed to terms with the Seahawks Friday, May 6, on a four-year deal, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed. The deal includes a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: Ifedi can play guard or tackle and could help a leaky offensive line soon, although Texas A&M offensive linemen have disappointed in recent drafts.

  Seahawks | Nick Vannett signs rookie contract    Fri May 6, 12:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Nick Vannett signed his rookie deal Friday, May 6.

Footballguys view: Vannett doesn't have a lot of upside as a receiver, but he could have hidden skills because the Ohio State offense was not very robust in the passing game. He might push to start as early as 2017 if Jimmy Graham is never his old self again after tearing his patellar tendon last season.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to be used on third downs    Sat Apr 30, 10:40 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is expected to be the team's third-down back in 2016 and be used as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

Footballguys view: He could be a nice change of pace back in this offense, and maybe a guy who could be a decent flex player during bye weeks this fantasy season.

  Seahawks | Nick Vannett added to Seattle mix    Fri Apr 29, 11:11 PM

The Seattle Seahawks selected Ohio State University TE Nick Vannett with the No. 94 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Vannett's got a great combination of size and athleticismand can work as a combination tight end who can stay on the field in any formation. He needs to be more aggressive though, and will be stuck behind Jimmy Graham.

The Seattle Seahawks selected Notre Dame RB C.J. Prosise with the No. 90 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Prosise used to be a wide receiver, so you know he can catch the ball. That said, he's going to be a role player and that role is likely to be limited enough to keep his fantasy value down.

The Seattle Seahawks selected Alabama DT Jarran Reed with the No. 49 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29. The Seahawks traded up with the Chicago Bears for the selection.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks made a heck of a pick to snag Reed at this point in the draft. He's a beast in the middle and should step right in to a significant role.

The Seattle Seahawks selected Texas A and M OT Germain Ifedi with the 31st overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks finally address the line with a guy who can play tackle or guard. He's got a lot of power and is a big guy but his technique is shaky. It may take time to get him coached up, but the Seahawks will be patient with him.

  Seahawks | Seattle could trade back    Thu Apr 28, 03:36 PM

The Seattle Seahawks could be convinced to trade their No. 26 pick in the first round if Memphis QB Paxton Lynch and Michigan State QB Connor Cook are available at that point. Seattle hasn't used their first-round pick since 2012, and general manager John Schneider sees this draft as deep.

Footballguys view: This is one of the many reasons we think Lynch doesn't fall out of the first. He has the talent to go and teams like the Chiefs and Broncos are very interested. Cook is less likely to draw a trade though. Footballguys Andrew Garda and Cecil Lammey are in Chicago covering the draft, and both have heard Denver could move up if Lynch drops to 20 or later.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham making progress    Tue Apr 26, 10:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon suffered a game in late November. He has been taking part in the initial stages of the team's official offseason program with two weeks of strength and condition and physical rehabilitation. Head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday, April 26, that everything is going well. The general team feeling is that Graham will be ready for the season.

Footballguys view: No one has come back to their previous form after a patellar tendon injury, and Graham wasn't exactly a fantasy stud for Seattle before the injury. He's a low TE1 in early drafts, and could fall from that spot if the beginning of the season is in doubt for him.

  Seahawks | No timeline for Thomas Rawls    Tue Apr 26, 10:15 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) continues to recover from a broken ankle suffered in a game in mid-December. Head coach Pete Carroll said everything is going well with Rawls' recovery, but there is still no official timeline. The team's general feeling is that Rawls will be ready for the beginning of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Rawls injury did not require surgery, but it is not comforting that the timeline has been unspecified during the offseason. The team could still add Arian Foster or a back in the draft, and Christine Michael could get more work in the offseason and preseason as Rawls is recovering. Rawls was a solid RB1 last year once he took over, but with more competition in the backfield this year, he might not meet that value in 2016.

Footballguys view: Jones is a guy whose value rose this past season and who has shown flashes of great production on tape and in games. His quickness off the snap and versatile skillset are something the Seahawks look for and he could be a great fit in the defense.
