Seattle Seahawks

NFC West


At QB23, Geno Smith isn't worth owning in 1QB leagues. In 2QB leagues, he's a low-end starter. Smith is projected to earn 30.9 of his 255 fantasy points by rushing. While not insignificant, it isn't really key to his fantasy value. With a projection of 12.0 interceptions compared to 24.0 passing touchdowns, Smith isn't not likely to melt down often.

Sam Howell is not the starting QB for the Seahawks. That means he's not really worth drafting in most fantasy leagues. Howell is projected to earn 5.7 of his 31 fantasy points by rushing. While rushing is in his toolbox, it's not a major source of his fantasy value. Projected for 1.9 interceptions compared to 2.6 passing TDs, he has the ability to ruin a fantasy week with multiple picks in a game.

The market has Kenneth Walker III correctly valued at an ADP of 44, compared to an overall ECR of 39. At a projected workload of 16.1 touches per game (14.2 carries and 1.9 receptions), Walker is an every-week fantasy starter. He's the top dog among running backs in Seattle, with Zach Charbonnet and Kenny McIntosh behind him. Seattle has the 13th-best running back schedule.

Zach Charbonnet is worth drafting at his ADP of 131 as the consensus #127 overall player. Projected to touch the ball 9.1 times per game (7.0 rushes and 2.1 receptions), Charbonnet won't be a reliable source of fantasy points. He's trailing Kenneth Walker III on the running back chart for Seattle. Seattle has the 13th-best running back schedule.

With 1.7 projected rushes and 0.5 projected catches per games, Kenny McIntosh is safe to leave on the waiver wire. He's behind both Kenneth Walker III and Zach Charbonnet on the running back chart for the Seahawks.

Dk Metcalf is the top dog among wide receivers on the Seahawks, with Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Tyler Lockett behind him. As the consensus #17 WR, he's an every week starter. He is projected for 1,051 yards and 9.1 TDs on 68.6 receptions, which is 28.7% of the workload for WRs on the Seahawks. Seattle has the 10th-worst wide receiver schedule. Drafting Metcalf is an easy choice at his ADP of 42, compared to an ECR of 29.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba is a fair value at his ADP of 108 as the consensus #111 overall player. Smith-Njigba is the #2 wide receiver on the Seahawks, trailing DK Metcalf. At #46 in our WR rankings, he will be startable as a WR3 or Flex most weeks. He's projected for 771 yards and 5.3 TDs on 71.6 receptions, for 29.9% of the total for WRs on the Seahawks. The Seahawks have the 10th-worst wide receiver schedule.

Tyler Lockett is the WR3 for the Seahawks, trailing DK Metcalf and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. At #47 in our WR rankings, he will be serviceable most weeks. He is projected for 844 yards and 5.7 TDs on 73.3 receptions, for 30.7% of the workload for Seahawks WRs. The Seahawks have the 10th-worst wide receiver schedule. The market has Lockett correctly valued at an ADP of 133, compared to an overall ECR of 116.

Noah Fant is projected for only 434 yards and 2.0 TDs on 41.1 receptions. At rank 28 among tight ends, Fant is best left on the waiver wire. As the consensus #233 overall player, Fant is a reasonable pick at his ADP of 228. The Seahawks have the 13th-best schedule for TEs.

Category: Preseason Insights


Aj Barner is projected to catch 11.0 receptions for 108 yards and 1.0 touchdowns. As the consensus #67, you can do better than drafting Barner. Barner is not Seattle's top tight end with Noah Fant around.

Hart might see limited usage as the 5th-ranked WR on the Seahawks. Ranked #182 in our consensus wide receiver rankings, he's not worth a draft pick in most leagues. He's projected to catch 9.6 receptions for 104 yards and 0.6 TDs, which is 4.3% of the workload for Seahawks WRs. The Seahawks have the 15th-best schedule for wide receivers.

Deejay Dallas is a little overvalued at his ADP of 277, with an ECR of 367. Consider drafting D'Ernest Johnson (ADP 279, ECR 228) or Samaje Perine (ADP 315, ECR 234) instead. With a projection of 1.6 touches per game (1.0 carries and 0.6 receptions), Dallas is not worth spending a draft pick on. He's behind both Rashaad Penny and Ken Walker III on the running back chart for the Seahawks. Seattle has the 12th-worst running back schedule.

Goodwin is the WR4 on the Seahawks. At #155 in our WR rankings, he's not a real fantasy asset. He's projected for 189 yards and 1.0 TDs on 15.0 receptions, which is 6.7% of the total for Seahawks WRs. The Seahawks have the 15th-best schedule for WRs.

Category: Preseason Insights


Drew Lock is not the starting QB for the Seahawks. Without a starting job, he's not really relevant in fantasy. Lock is projected to earn 9.3 of his 74 fantasy points by rushing. While that's a nice bonus, it's not a huge part of his gameplan. Projected for 4.1 interceptions compared to 6.2 passing TDs, Lock is not the safest QB to run out each week.

Colby Parkinson is projected for 52 yards and 0.4 TDs on 5.4 receptions. As the consensus #88, you can do better than drafting Parkinson. Parkinson will struggle for touches with Noah Fant and Will Dissly ahead of him.

Chris Carson isn't a great value at his ADP of 175, with an ECR of 257. Consider drafting Sony Michel (ADP 181, ECR 148) or Brian Robinson Jr. (ADP 222, ECR 191) instead. With 2.8 projected rushes and 0.6 projected catches per games, it's a desperate situation if you're starting Carson in fantasy. He has some competition on the Seahawks' depth chart, where he trails both Rashaad Penny and Ken Walker III. Seattle has the 12th-worst schedule for running backs.

Rashaad Penny is correctly valued at his ADP of 78 as the consensus #74 overall player. With a projection of 13.1 touches per game (11.9 carries and 1.2 receptions), Penny has an uninspiring but still valuable workload. He leads Ken Walker III and Travis Homer on the Seahawks' depth chart. Seattle has the 12th-worst running back schedule.

Category: Preseason Insights


Projected to carry the ball 1.1 times and catch 0.7 passes per game, Travis Homer is not worth spending a draft pick on. He has some competition on Seattle's depth chart in Rashaad Penny and Ken Walker III.

Category: Preseason Insights


As the consensus TE52, Will Dissly is not fantasy-relevant. Dissly is projected for 199 yards and 1.2 TDs on 19.1 receptions. Dissly is not Seattle's top tight end with Noah Fant around.

Category: Preseason Insights


Dee Eskridge is the WR3 for the Seahawks, behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Ranked #130 in our consensus wide receiver rankings, he's only relevant in deep leagues. He's projected for 315 yards and 1.6 TDs on 24.8 receptions, for 11.0% of the total for WRs on the Seahawks. The Seahawks have the 15th-best wide receiver schedule.
