  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls should be ready    Sat Feb 6, 06:42 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) said he's pain-free and is expected to be ready for training camp.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch likely done in Seattle    Fri Feb 5, 11:59 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to NFL Network commentator Michael Robinson. Robinson, who is close friends with Lynch, said he knew what Lynch's intentions were regarding retirement, but he wasn't at liberty to say. 'It's fair to assume (his days in Seattle are over,)' Robinson said.

Footballguys view: Lynch is exactly the kind of player who goes out on his own terms. He could still be viable in a smaller role a la Steven Jackson, but look for Lynch to retire and continue to have fun instead of limping into the sunset. Thomas Rawls should enter the 2016 season as the lead back in Seattle and go no later than the 3rd-4th round of drafts.

  Seahawks | DeMarco Murray not a fit for Seattle?    Thu Feb 4, 07:39 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray drew interest from the Seattle Seahawks last offseason before he signed with the Eagles. He could be pursued by them again this offseason if he does not return to Philadelphia. That move may not make much sense for Seattle, though, according to Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. Kapadia believes RB Thomas Rawls is still the answer for Seattle's future backfield even if Murray is available.

Footballguys view: Kapadia is one of the best beat writers in the NFL. We 100 percent believe that Rawls is the franchise back for the Seahawks going forward.

  Seahawks | Tyler Slavin signs    Thu Feb 4, 05:50 PM

The Seattle Seahawks re-signed WR Tyler Slavin to a Reserve/Futures contract Thursday, Feb. 4.

Footballguys view: Slavin transferred to New Mexico Highlands from Arizona and showed reliable hands and fearlessness when running routes over the middle. At 6'2" 215, Slavin is a physical player who does not shy away from contact.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin coming off career year    Mon Feb 1, 02:57 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin scored 11 touchdowns in his last six games en route to a 78-catch, 1,069-yard, 14-touchdown season. The 14 touchdowns nearly equaled his touchdown total from the four previous seasons combined.

Footballguys view: Baldwin looks like he's arrived as the top wideout for the Seahawks. The 14 touchdowns will be difficult to duplicate in 2016, so make sure not to chase after those too hard in next season's drafts.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson the Pro Bowl MVP    Mon Feb 1, 12:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw three first-half touchdowns in a winning effort for Team Irvin in the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 31, to earn offensive Most Valuable Player honors. Wilson went 8-for-12 for 164 yards in the game.

  Seahawks | Russell Okung to have surgery    Wed Jan 27, 01:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks OT Russell Okung (shoulder) will have surgery to repair his dislocated left shoulder soon and should be fully cleared for activities in five months.

Footballguys view: Okung has not played a full 16-game season in his entire pro career. A first-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft, Okung is a free agent in 2016 and should be facing an cooler market due to his injury history.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham back in Seattle    Fri Jan 22, 02:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) will return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Footballguys view: Graham's torn patellar tendon ended his roller coaster season. He appeared in 11 games and had a career-low two receiving touchdowns. Only two months removed from that major injury, Graham's recovery will take most of the offseason and perhaps even into training camp.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson to study in offseason    Fri Jan 22, 01:36 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who led the league in passer rating (110.1) and set career highs in completion percentage (68.1%) and yards per attempt (8.3), will study defenses more this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Wilson tossed 24 touchdowns to just one interception in the final seven games of the regular season in 2015. Wilson improved against the blitz this year, too, with a 137.0 passer rating against five rushers or more in the final seven games. 'I think the first step is the knowledge,' Wilson said Monday. 'You want to continue to grow intellectually and master that part of it. Continue to work on that craft. I think that when you really mentally grasp the game of football, the game really, really slows down. And that's what was able to happen this year especially.'

Footballguys view: Wilson will put in the work, and the team could have an even better passing game in 2016. Getting tight end Jimmy Graham back healthy could help Wilson continue to progress as a passer. We see targets like Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett growing in their roles as well.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch leaning towards sunset    Fri Jan 22, 01:22 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is leaning towards retirement, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Footballguys view: We could see Lynch retiring instead of coming back to the Seahawks or moving on to another team. He's been considering retirement for a couple of years now, and with an $11.5 million cap number in 2016 we don't think his future is with Seattle.

  Seahawks | No discount for Jermaine Kearse     Thu Jan 21, 09:38 AM

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse said he won't offer the team a hometown discount. 'I love my hometown, but I've put in too much hard work to give a discount,' Kearse said via text message. 'My number one priority is to take care of my family's future, so I will consider all opportunities.'

Footballguys view: While Kearse had a tremendous game against the Carolina Panthers, he's not a guy who will do that consistently, so the Seahawks are at a crossroads. Not likely to want to spend the money he wants but unable to get him to take a discount.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to be traded or released?    Tue Jan 19, 07:33 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be released or traded this offseason, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. The Seahawks could save $6.5 million against the salary cap by moving Lynch.

Footballguys view: We agree with the speculation in this report. We'll probably see them move on with Thomas Rawls as the top back.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to have big cap hit    Tue Jan 19, 05:00 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will take an $11.5 million cap hit next season -- the highest cap hit for any running back under contract for 2016. Comparatively, RB Thomas Rawls will only take a $530,000 cap hit. Additionally, Rawls drastically out produced Lynch in 2015. Lynch gained 497 yards from scrimmage on 292 snaps, with 3.8 yards per carry and a 57% third-down conversion rate. Rawls gained 906 yards from scrimmage on 279 snaps, with 5.6 yards per carry (most in NFL) and a 75% third-down conversation rate.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine the Seahawks keeping Lynch around at his current price. He may have played his final downs for the Seahawks, and maybe even in his pro career. Lynch has danced around retirement before and doesn't seem to be the type of player who will play far past his prime. Stay tuned.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch's future uncertain    Mon Jan 18, 07:27 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's future with the team is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Lynch will be greatly overpaid at a nine million dollar salary next year. Look for Thomas Rawls to start in Seattle and Lynch to either retire or take a smaller role in Seattle or elsewhere.

  Seahawks | Jermaine Kearse hopes to return    Mon Jan 18, 07:15 PM

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse said he hopes to re-sign with the Seahawks this offseason.

Footballguys view: Kearse had one of his best games of the year in the loss to the Panthers this weekend. He could draw interest as a receiver with vertical speed and good size.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls will be ready for 2016    Mon Jan 18, 07:08 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) said he will be out of his cast in the near future and will be ready for the 2016 season.

Footballguys view: With Marshawn Lynch a flop this year and Rawls on the road to recovery, look for the second year UDFA to get a chance to start and probably go off the board as a top 20 running back in drafts this summer.

  Seahawks | Sign four to Reserve/Futures deals    Mon Jan 18, 05:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Brandon Cottom and WRs Deshon Foxx, Antwan Goodley and Douglas McNeil were signed to Reserve/Futures deals Monday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Goodley is a running back shaped receiver who is strong after the catch. He's the most promising name in this group.

  Seahawks | Russell Okung dislocates shoulder    Sun Jan 17, 09:00 PM

Updating a previous story, Seattle Seahawks OT Russell Okung (shoulder) suffered a dislocated shoulder in the second quarter against the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 17, and did not return.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett finds end zone    Sun Jan 17, 05:57 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught three passes for 75 yards and one touchdown in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Lockett made a beautiful grab near the back pylon of the end zone. He had a fantastic rookie season, and his upside for fantasy leagues is great.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin plays well again    Sun Jan 17, 05:50 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin caught eight passes for 82 yards in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Baldwin didn't get into the end zone, but he was clearly a favorite target of QB Russell Wilson. Entering next season, Baldwin should once again be a big part of the Seahawks passing game.

  Seahawks | Jermaine Kearse catches two TDs    Sun Jan 17, 05:46 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse caught 11 passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Kearse really helped spark the Seahawks offense. They were down 31-0 in the first half, but the Seahawks kept firing with Kearse being a favorite target of QB Russell Wilson.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch quiet in playoff game    Sun Jan 17, 05:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 20 yards on six carries in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Lynch was back, but he was far from "Beast Mode" on Sunday. It was his first game since Week 10, and the team gave him plenty of time to rest after his sports hernia surgery. Due $11.5 million in 2016, this might have been the final game of Lynch's Seahawks career. The team could save $6.5 million by cutting the veteran back as he's coming off a career-low 417 rushing yards in 2015.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson has an eventful game    Sun Jan 17, 05:34 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson went 31-for-48 for 366 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17. He also rushed for 32 yards on three carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Wilson deserves a lot of praise for his play in Sunday's contest. With Seattle down 31-0 in the first half, Wilson maintained his composure and that attitude filtered through to the players around him. He came through with a big game for the DFS players who started him this weekend.

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will still rotate in quite a bit in the divisional matchup with the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17, even with RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) expected to return, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The Seahawks won't put Lynch through a pre-game test.

Footballguys view: It's Lynch. So there's always the worry of the unexpected happening. But this is looking like Seattle expects to see plenty of him on the field.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is listed as probable for the divisional matchup with the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17, and head coach Pete Carroll said there's a 'really good chance' that Lynch plays.

Footballguys view: Lynch could be the centerpiece of the offense now that he's expected to return. The team is up against a tough Panthers defense, and this game on Sunday could be the closest (and best) of the weekend.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) said he is ready to play in the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) was asked by Kenny Mayne of ESPN how he was doing, and Lynch replied via text: 'I'm ready.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are ready for Lynch's return as well. We'll see what kind of impact Lynch can make against a tough Carolina defense. Lynch was close to playing last week, so it's safe to assume that he's going to get near a full workload this week.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch up in the air    Thu Jan 14, 07:30 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's (abdomen) status for the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers remains uncertain, even though he put in another full practice Thursday, Jan. 14. Seattle coaches have been encouraged by Lynch's progress this week, though.

Footballguys view: A late shutdown last week, we feel better about it this time out. If he plays, he will likely get a full load of carries and be a huge part of the offense, making him a strong fantasy play this weekend, even against a tough Carolina defense.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch, Luke Willson full go    Thu Jan 14, 07:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) and TE Luke Willson (concussion) were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: After a few weeks off, we think Lynch will be ready to rock this weekend. He was close last week before a last minute shutdown, so we think he should be fine now. He'll get the bulk of the carries, but he faces some tough competition. You can start him as a decent RB1 option in fantasy though, and we think he will get a ton of work.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 13, and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Lynch looked better than he did last week. However, the Seahawks won't know much else until Friday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Lynch was on track to play last week before it was revealed that he didn't make the trip to Minnesota to play the Vikings. Now, he's once again on track to play...but some fantasy owners are going to be hesitant to trust him. If he plays, Lynch could be the battering ram for the Seahawks as they face a tough Panthers defense.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to practice    Wed Jan 13, 05:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) will take part in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13, and head coach Pete Carroll said they are taking Lynch's status day-to-day. Lynch appeared to be on track to play in the wild-card round before declaring himself out before the team traveled to face the Minnesota Vikings. Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said his team is preparing as though Lynch will return. Lynch hasn't played since Week 10, and he was averaging only 3.8 yards per carry on 111 rushes before his injury.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners were thrown for a loop when Lynch didn't make the trip to Minnesota. People will proceed with caution when considering Lynch as a DFS play. That could lead to lower ownership percentage than we're used to seeing when Lynch is playing.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson has good record vs. CAR    Tue Jan 12, 05:03 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson holds a 3-1 record against the Carolina Panthers in his career. That one loss, however, came in Week 6 of this season.

Footballguys view: Throw the records out in this one. The Seahawks only won against the Vikings because of a shanked field goal by Blair Walsh. They survived the cold temperatures to face a hot Carolina team that is the top seed in the NFC. This game should be great, and it might be too close to call.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch could be game-time decision    Mon Jan 11, 07:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) didn't have a setback last week, but head coach Pete Carroll said Lynch could be a game-time decision in the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17. 'We've got to go one day at a time, see what happens, see how it goes, get him out there practicing and see what that means,' Carroll said. 'We don't know yet.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be leery of Lynch this week after he was set to go last week then basically pulled himself out of the lineup and didn't make the trip to Minnesota.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch ruled himself out    Mon Jan 11, 01:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) ruled himself out for the wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10, because 'he just didn't feel like he had it,' according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said he has no idea if Lynch will play in the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers. RB Christine Michael had a team-high 70 yards on 21 carries against the Vikings.

Footballguys view: Things looked good for Lynch all the way to the point of Seattle having to travel to Minnesota. Every DFS player should proceed with caution when looking to Lynch in the Divisional Round.
