  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch runs better in postseason    Tue Jan 27, 04:12 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch averages more yards per carry and yards after contact (5.00, 2.67) during the postseason than during the regular season (4.41, 2.01).

Footballguys view: Lynch is a powerful runner who gets stronger as the game--and the season--goes on. It's not surprising to see his postseason performances given how tough he is to contend with during the regular season.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas expects to lean on teammates    Mon Jan 26, 01:58 PM

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) said he won't miss the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots with a dislocated shoulder, but he also admitted that it won't be a normal game for him as he plays through the injury. Thomas is unsure if he'll need to have surgery this offseason for his injury. 'My mindset is I have an opportunity to really trust my teammates,' Thomas said. 'This is the first game I'm going to have to trust them because of my injury. So I really, really, really trust my teammates, and that's what I'm banking on, my teammates doing what they need to do and I need to come through myself.'

Footballguys view: We're expecting Thomas to be limited leading up to the Super Bowl on Sunday. The team won't want to push him too much in practice and re-aggravate the injury.

  Seahawks | Seattle Seahawks struggles against TEs    Mon Jan 26, 01:51 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski could cause a problem for the Seattle Seahawks during Super Bowl XLIX, because the Seahawks defense allowed 11 touchdowns to tight ends this season, which was third most in the NFL. Gronkowski led the Patriots in touchdown catches during the regular season.

Footballguys view: The weak spot (yes, there is a weak spot) for the Seahawks defense is up the middle. Every team struggles with Rob Gronkowski, but he could be the difference maker for the Patriots offense. His ability to attack the deep middle seam will help open things up for Tom Brady and the passing game.

  Seahawks | Byron Maxwell expected to be FA priority    Sat Jan 24, 11:57 AM

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent CB Byron Maxwell is expected to be one of the players the team wants to re-sign this offseason, according to general manager John Schneider.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks want to keep their secondary together if at all possible. Opposing quarterbacks have targeted Maxwell often as they tend to stay away from Richard Sherman's side of the field. He'll be one of the best free agent corners on the market if he's able to explore his options. Seattle is already paying Sherman $40 million guaranteed and an annual average salary of $14 million. It may prove to be difficult to find enough money for Maxwell.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch levied multiple fines    Thu Jan 22, 09:48 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $20,000 Thursday, Jan. 22, for an obscene gesture he made after scoring a touchdown in the NFC Championship game, according to an NFL official. He's also subject to a fine for not speaking to the media after the game, and the league is considering fining him significantly more than the $50,000 he has been previously fined for not speaking to reporters. An NFL official said there would be increasing fines if Lynch misses sessions during Super Bowl week, with each fine being more than the two $50,000 fines already imposed and the upcoming penalty.

Footballguys view: Of course he was. He should send a cake to the Patriots because this would be a bigger story this week and the next if it wasn't for a bunch of balls being under-inflated. It's long been thought Lynch might have some sort of anxiety issue and he might need more help from the NFL and his team. The guy is clearly uncomfortable in front of the press and yet he gets tossed out there with little support from either entity. Expect more of the same next week.

  Seahawks | Richard Sherman has sprained elbow    Mon Jan 19, 03:35 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (elbow) suffered a sprained elbow during the NFC Championship game, according to a source, but should be able to play in the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: Our very own Dr. Jene Bramel says this injury is tough to play through, but Sherman should be able to play in the big game. Expect the Seahawks to limit Sherman leading up to Super Sunday so they don't aggravate the injury.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch mulling retirement?    Mon Jan 19, 01:59 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch may consider retirement if the Seahawks win the Super Bowl, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lynch has reportedly told people in private that he may simply just walk away from the game.

Footballguys view: Lynch marches to the beat of his own drum. It wouldn't shock us if he rushes for over 1,000 yards again in 2015 or retires and never plays football again. Dynasty owners should have already been prepared for both scenarios.

  Seahawks | Seattle open to Marshawn Lynch returning    Mon Jan 19, 10:16 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to return in 2015 with the team more than open to bringing him back at a $5 million salary. 'Mainly because he actually has outperformed his contract and clearly established himself as the identity of this team,' NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on NFL Gameday Morning. 'Basically, they don't have a choice based on the way he plays to bring him back.'

Footballguys view: Lynch is the centerpiece of the Seattle offense. They do have a couple of interesting young backs (Robert Turbin, Christine Michael) behind him, but we can't imagine Lynch getting dumped for salary reasons.

  Seahawks | Paul Richardson to IR    Tue Jan 13, 07:28 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: A sad way for Richardson's rookie season to end. Richardson had a history of knee problems while in college at Colorado, and this injury could prevent him from being ready at the start of the 2015 season. His dynasty upside certainly takes a hit here. After so many knee problems, Richardson may never fully be able to develop into the player he could have been as a pro.

Footballguys view: The Packers are going to have their hands full with Lynch. He's the centerpiece of the Seahawks offense, and Lynch will be used to grind down the Packers defense.

  Seahawks | Kevin Norwood to have bigger role?    Mon Jan 12, 12:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Kevin Norwood will likely have a bigger role in the offense after the season-ending injury to WR Paul Richardson (knee). Norwood had nine catches for 102 yards this year, but he was inactive for the teams' divisional round win.

Footballguys view: Norwood is a good player who runs strong routes and has very good hands. He's quicker than fast, and Norwood could develop into a strong pro.

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) will miss the remainder of the playoffs and could miss the start of next season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the divisional round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the rookie receiver here. He missed the 2012 season at Colorado with a knee injury, and Richardson was known to have durability issues in college before that. We'll see if he can come back at some time next year. The Seahawks could put him on PUP at the beginning of the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: Davis is an interesting prospect to monitor, but only in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues. He's athletic and has a strong arm, but Davis needs to work on being more accurate.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is expected to become the NFL's highest -paid quarterback this offseason when the team signs him to a long-term extension.

Footballguys view: Wilson has certainly outplayed his contract to this point. He was a third-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2012 NFL draft, and Wilson was among the lowest paid players at his position. It's great to see his hard work is going to lead to a big payday.
