Fantasy Impact: Dunbar was listed as questionable after not practicing Friday. He'll likely match up most often with Michael Gallup in Week 3.

Seattle Seahawks first-round pick LB Jordyn Brooks will make his first NFL start this Sunday against Dallas.

Fantasy Impact: With LB Bruce Irvin being placed on season-ending IR, Brooks will become the first rookie to start a game for the Seahawks since 2016. Brooks is a fantastic athlete who racked up a ton of tackles while at Texas Tech and looks to give this Seattle D/ST a boost moving forward.

Fantasy Impact: Dorsett was inactive the last two weeks due to a sore foot. He needs additional time to recover and will miss at least the next three weeks. Look for David Moore to continue to handle WR3 duties for the Seahawks while Dorsett is sidelined.

Seahawks' OLB Bruce Irvin is feared to have torn his ACL during Sunday's 35-30 win against the Patriots. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Irvin is undergoing tests to confirm whether or not he suffered a torn ACL. Seattle can ill afford to lose a defensive starter, as they have allowed Atlanta and New England to combine for 986 offensive yards through two weeks. Rookie first-round LB Jordyn Brooks will be Irvin's replacement if the ACL tear is confirmed.

Seattle RB Travis Homer rushed three times for 21 yards Sunday night against New England.

Fantasy Impact: Homer's real impact came on special teams where he tallied 89 yards on three returns in the Seattle victory.

Jason Myers was 5 for 5 on PATs Sunday night against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Since Seattle has decided to "let Russ cook", it looks like Myers will be the K benefitting from a potent Seahawks offense and should be a mainstay in fantasy lineups.

Seattle's D/ST allowed 30 points and had one sack and one interception Sunday night versus the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Seattle's defense wasn't exactly "stout" Sunday night against the Patriots. They gave up 397 passing yards and a touchdown through the air, as well as 47 rushing yards and two rushing scores to Cam Newton. However, when it was all on the line, they stuffed Cam on a designed QB run at the goal-line as time expired to walk away with the win. The Seahawks D/ST has a tough game this Sunday as they take on Dallas in what could be another exciting shoot-out. Fantasy owners shouldn't plan on having them in starting lineups.

Carlos Hyde had five carries for 22 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards in a 35-30 win over the Patriots in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Hyde continues to operate in a complementary role to lead rusher Chris Carson in the Seattle attack. He won't offer much standalone value, but could find the end zone every so often as he did in Week 1. Because of how potent this Seahawks offense is, Hyde is one of the more valuable handcuffs in fantasy football. Roster him, but temper expectations should you have to start him with Carson healthy.

Will Dissly caught his lone target in Week 2 for nine yards as the Seahawks beat the Patriots 35-30.

Fantasy Impact: There were reports throughout the week that said Dissly was going to become more involved in the offense. That clearly wasn't the case in Week 2, but he saw his fair share of snaps alongside Greg Olsen. Through two games, Dissly has just three catches for 17 yards on three targets. He can only hope to be more involved when the Seahawks take on the Cowboys in Week 3.

Category: Game Recaps

Greg Olsen didn't record a single reception in Week 2 on just one target from Russell Wilson.

Fantasy Impact: After catching 4-of-4 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, Olsen was an afterthought in the Seattle passing attack in Week 2. Olsen and teammate Will Dissly are going to be hard to trust on a weekly basis as they seem to be splitting the snaps at tight end through two games. Nonetheless, Olsen will look to get back on track when the Seahawks host the Cowboys in Week 3.

Category: Game Recaps

David Moore caught 3-of-3 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in a 35-30 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Moore made an incredible catch to stay inbounds going into the end zone. He toe-tapped the turf and then dragged his other foot to hit the pylon after making a nice catch on a perfectly placed ball by Russell Wilson. The 3rd-year receiver has caught all six of his targets through two games. Moore is likely to have some games when he scores a touchdown, but when he's not finding the end zone, he's going to be hard to trust for fantasy purposes. Next is a matchup against the Cowboys in Week 3.

D.K. Metcalf caught 4-of-6 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in a Week 2 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Metcalf was lined up with Stephon Gilmore most of the night, but got the best of him on a long 54-yard touchdown in the 2nd quarter. Metcalf has quietly led all Seahawks pass-catchers in each of the first two games, totaling 187 yards and two scores. He and Tyler Lockett are set to benefit tremendously from what looks to be a pass-first offense in 2020. Metcalf and the Seahawks play host to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Category: Game Recaps

Tyler Lockett caught 7-of-8 balls for 67 yards and a touchdown in a big 35-30 win over the Patriots in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: That's now 15 receptions on 16 targets through two games. Lockett has always had a high catch rate for his career, and he's starting the 2020 in a similar fashion. He's a consistent producer on what is now seemingly a team that wants to unleash Russell Wilson's arm talent. Next up is a matchup against the Cowboys in what should be a high scoring affair with lots of fireworks.

Category: Game Recaps

Chris Carson carried the ball 17 times for 72 yards and had three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 35-30 win over the Patriots in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: After logging just six carries the week before, Carson looked every bit like the lead back for the Seahawks in Week 2, seeing 68 percent of the running back carries. Through two games, Carson has found the end zone three times on 23 rush attempts and nine targets. All three of his touchdowns have come through the air. He's showing early on that he is a rock-solid RB2 with RB1 upside in any given week. He'll get a nice matchup against the Cowboys at home in Week 3.

Category: Game Recaps

Russell Wilson completed 21-of-28 passes for 288 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed five times for 39 yards in the 35-30 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson followed up his flawless Week 1 performance with another gem on Sunday Night Football in Week 2 against the Patriots. He has now completed 82.5 percent of his pass attempts through two games, averaging 305 yards and 4.5 touchdowns through the air in each game. He'll look to continue his MVP-like start to the season when the Seahawks play host to the Cowboys in Week 3.

According to Seahawks HC Pete Carroll, Rashaad Penny is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery and can practice after sitting out six weeks. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Penny appears to be progressing well in his recovery from a torn ACL, and Seattle HC Pete Carroll is optimistic about his outlook once he's activated from the PUP list. There are still several weeks until this happens, so Chris Carson owners shouldn't be concerned in the interim as he's slated to get a bulk of the carries for the foreseeable future. Penny will likely shift to a third-down, pass-catching role once he's ready to return.

Seahawks rookie RB DeeJay Dallas is inactive for Week 1 vs. the Falcons. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dallas had a great training camp, but the Seahawks are making the rookie a healthy scratch heading into Week 1. It’ll be Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and Travis Homer at the running back position, with Carson of course leading the way.

The Seattle Seahawks are releasing WR Paul Richardson Jr. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Richardson is being released just six days after signing with his former team. He spent four seasons in Seattle prior to joining the Washington Football Team in 2018. It was going to be a nice homecoming for the former Seahawk, but it won’t turn out as planned.

Colby Parkinson, who has been recovering from a foot injury, is ahead of schedule and is expected to be active before the end of training camp. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Parkinson had to have surgery on his toe during the off-season, but appears to be ahead of schedule. Parkinson will be in a tough position battle as the Seahawks have good depth at the tight end position. Expect Greg Olsen and Will Dissly to lead Seattle in tight end snaps.

Per source, newly-acquired S Jamal Adams will play the 2020 season with the Seahawks on his existing rookie contract that will pay him $3.59M. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He’s then due $9.86M in 2021 which would be the final year of his rookie contract. Adams and Seattle both agreed that this would be the case prior to trading for the All-Pro Safety. As one of the top defensive players in the NFL, it’s not hard to envision the Seahawks eventually signing Adams to a multi-year extension.
