DST - SEA
This Week Outlook
The Seattle Seahawks and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer have parted ways.
"Philosophical differences" were cited as the reason for the split. Seattle has always been a run-first team under head coach Pete Carroll, but the #LetRussCook movement gained steam entering 2020, which led to an MVP performance out of Russell Wilson through the first half. However, turnovers quickly became an issue, and Carroll spoke publicly about his desire to get back to running the ball. The Seahawks' offense has always seemed to function at its best when plays broke down and things became unscripted. That usually isn't a good sign. Shane Steichen, the current Chargers' OC, has been mentioned as a candidate for Seattle's new opening.
The Seattle Seahawks D/ST recorded six sacks and one interception against Carson Wentz and the Eagles in a 23-17 Week 12 win.
The Seahawks Defense has looked fantastic the last two weeks, holding the Cardinals and Eagles offenses to 21 points or less. They've now recorded nine sacks the past two games. They'll face the Giants in Week 13, who could be without starter Daniel Jones, making them a potential top-5 option next week.
Seahawks' HC Pete Carroll has reportedly signed a five-year contract extension that could make him the highest paid coach in the league, per Adam Schefter.
Carroll has had a tremendous amount of success in Seattle over the past decade, tallying eight playoff appearances, two Super Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl win over Denver in 2013. Carroll has listened to Seahawks fans' chant of "let Russ cook" this season and it has resulted in QB Russell Wilson leading the MVP race with 26 passing touchdowns. Seattle will look to improve to 7-1 as they travel to Buffalo in Week 9.
The Seattle Seahawks D/ST intercepted Kyler Murray once and recovered a fumble from DeAndre Hopkins in Sunday's 37-34 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The Seahawks D/ST gathered a couple of turnovers in Sunday night's shootout but did little to contain Kyler Murray and the Cardinals explosive offense in the second half. The Seahawks have been one of the worst fantasy defenses this season and should be avoided by fantasy managers next week against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Seattle Seahawks D/ST recorded an interception, a fumble recovery, and three sacks in the team's 27-26 Week 5 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
It was an unspectacular fantasy performance on Sunday Night Football. Seattle's D/ST can be left on the waiver wire ahead of a Week 6 bye.
