TE - FA
Week 14 Outlook
The Seattle Seahawks have waived TE Cooper Helfet (foot) with an injury settlement and will be reverted to the team's injured reserve list if he passes though waivers.
Helfet appeared in 14 games in 2015 with the Seahawks and caught 13 targets for 130 yards. He has no fantasy value in 2016.
Both Cooper Helfet and Chase Coffman were not targeted in Sunday's Wild Card victory over the Vikings.
Both Chase Coffman and Tyler Coffman were not targeted in the Wild Card round. Neither player is a viable fantasy option in the Divisional round against the Panthers with or without Luke Wilson in the lineup. Wilson missed Sunday's game in Minnesota with a concussion and could return this week.
Cooper Helfet, who has been part of the committee replacing Jimmy Graham (out with a torn Patellar Tendon), had 4 catches for 43 yards on Sunday.
Helfet had a nice game for a role player, but he is not a recommended fantasy option if you're heading into a week 17 final.
Cooper Helfet (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Week 14's tilt against the Eagles.
Well, for those of you in "Duke TE only" formats, this might be a tough week for you. But in all seriousness, this could mean a few more targets for Luke Willison and Tony Moeaki, which could lead to a TE TD, as it seems that one of the aforementioned duo seems to take advantage of Russell Wilson's ability to extend plays at least once a week with a big gainer. Helfet has delivered two surprising useful fantasy weeks in 2014, but can safely be left on the waiver wire along with all the rest of Seattle's TEs in non-2TE NFC West only fantasy hipster formats.
Cooper Helfet was unable to recover from a Week 12 ankle injury and will miss today's Week 13 game against San Francisco.
Helfet has been something of a pleasant surprise for the Seahawks thus far, catching 10 passes for 176 yards and two TD's in 9 games. The Seahawks looked to TEs early and often in Week 12, as 32% of their passing attempts went to the TE position group. With Helfet out, look for Luke Willson and Tony Moeaki to get somewhere between 2-5 targets each today, with a high probability of a TD caught by a Seattle TE. Both Willson and Moeaki (along with WR Jermaine Kearse) are interesting options in Thanksgiving only DFS formats.
