Seattle Seahawks

NFC West

Fantasy Impact: Parkinson brings with him a whole lot of size, measuring in at 6-foot-7. He joins a very crowded tight end room in Seattle that consists of Greg Olsen, Will Dissly, and Jacob Hollister to name a few. In his three years at Stanford, Parkinson caught 86 balls for 1,162 yards and 12 TDs. He’ll have to prove himself in training camp in order to find his way onto the 53-man roster this season.

RB Carlos Hyde officially signed his one-year deal with the Seahawks on Thursday. Seattle released G Demetrius Knox in a corresponding move. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hyde can earn up to $4 million on his one-year contract. He had surgery on his shoulder in February, but is expected to be ready before the NFL season starts. Hyde logged 245 carries for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns across 16 games for the Texans in 2019. The 29-year-old RB will most likely be an early-down complement to Chris Carson. With Rashaad Penny expected to the land on the PUP list, Hyde could play a key role right off the bat. He is currently 74th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Fantasy Impact: Carson is still rehabbing his hip injury but is expected to be ready for Week 1. The Hyde signing is more about Rashaad Penny (knee), who could miss the first six games of the year while being placed on reserve/PUP. Carson totaled 1,230 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2019.

Former LSU WR/TE Stephen Sullivan, pick No. 251 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, is being listed as a tight end after spending most of his collegiate career as a wide receiver. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks go nine-deep at the tight end position and they’ve got a whole stable of capable starters, including the off-season addition of Greg Olsen. Teams normally keep three to four tight ends on their 53-man roster, so in order for Sullivan to ultimately make the squad, he may have to be listed as a WR. Olsen, along with Will Dissly, Jacob Hollister, and Luke Willson, all have starting TE experience in the NFL, so Sullivan will most definitely have his work cut out for him to make the team as a TE. He played two years as a WR at LSU before being transitioned to a TE his senior season. At 6’5”, Sullivan boasts a unique skill set as a combo receiver with the ability to make plays down the field, something Seattle could want from the tight end position this season. In his three-year career at LSU, Sullivan caught 46 balls for 712 yards and three TDs.

According to Seahawks GM John Schneider, RB Rashaad Penny could start the season on the PUP list as he recovers from a torn ACL he suffered on December 8, 2019. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It normally takes 9-10 months to fully recover from a torn ACL, and Penny is only 5 months removed from the injury. Schneider reiterated, “he’s doing great but it was a late-season injury.” He went on to state that RB Chris Carson is doing great in his recovery from his own injury, and that he will be ready for the start of the season. From a fantasy perspective, it looks like Carson will be the workhorse back early on in what is one of the most run-heavy offenses in the league. Even with the addition of RB DeeJay Dallas, consider Carson a borderline RB1 if Penny remains on the shelf. Carson is currently ranked #16 in FantasyPros consensus RB rankings, while Penny is ranked #54 and remains a top handcuff option.

Jacob Hollister officially signed his second-round tender with the Seahawks on Sunday. (Source: Pro Football Talk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks placed a second-round tender on Hollister in March, and he will remain in Seattle for the upcoming 2020 season. Hollister was acquired from the Patriots for a seventh round draft pick last year. The 26-year-old TE hauled in 41 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns across 11 games for the Seahawks in 2019. Hollister will provide the depth at TE behind newly acquired Greg Olsen and oft-injured Will Dissly. He is currently 33rd among all tight ends in the expert consensus rankings.

David Moore officially signed his RFA tender with the Seahawks on Sunday. The deal is worth $2.1 million. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks placed an original-round tender on Moore in March, and he will remain in Seattle for the upcoming 2020 season. He recorded 17 catches for 301 yards and two touchdowns across 14 games for the Seahawks in 2019. Moore is the third receiving option behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, making the 25-year-old a flyer in deep-league formats.

Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer says he is looking to expand D.K. Metcalf's versatility in the passing game this season. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: “He kind of got stuck at the ‘X’ receiver last year. This year we know we can move him around quite a bit more. I just think the flexibility of moving him around and introducing some different route concepts that we can kind of get him up to speed on will complement the things that he’s already put on film" were some of Schottenheimer's exact words. Metcalf began his rookie season only working outside the numbers but eventually emerged down the stretch as a more complete receiver. He wound up posting the most receiving yards ever by a rookie in a playoff game, putting up 160 yards against the Eagles. Added versatility would only help the 22-year-old's fantasy production.

The Seahawks have withdrawn the exclusive rights tender on WR Malik Turner, who will now become a free agent. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Turner had 15 catches in as many games for the Seahawks last season, for 245 yards and one touchdown. The undrafted 24-year old WR out of Illinois will now look to find a new home after spending the past two seasons in Seattle.

Seahawks GM John Schneider has not kept his first-round pick in the last eight years, opting either to trade down or trade for veteran talent instead. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A GM told Peter King that there are only two sure things in this year’s draft, “Joe Burrow to the Bengals and John Schneider trades down in the first round.” Seattle understands the premium that comes with a “first-round” selection, so if they are able to trade the 27th pick, they’ll likely be trading down to acquire more assets or a veteran player to help fill a void. The Seahawks could use some help in the trenches to bolster both their offensive and defensive lines. Look for them to draft accordingly in a couple of weeks.

Ed Dickson released by Seahawks

Fantasy Impact: The 32-year-old tight end will most likely find a new home this offseason, but hasn't been relevant in fantasy football since his early years in Baltimore. After nine seasons as a pro, Dickson has turned into a blocking tight end and has never surpassed five touchdowns in a single season. Jacob Hollister filled in as the primary pass-catcher after Will Dissly went down with a season-ending injury and the Seahawks must be comfortable with that duo going forward. Regardless of where Dickson ends up this offseason, he'd be a huge reach in any fantasy leagues.

S Tedric Thompson is being released by the Seattle Seahawks, per source.

Fantasy Impact: A 2017 fourth-round pick out of Colorado, Thompson has played three seasons for the Seahawks. He was a full-time starter in 2018, but in 2019 his season was cut short after he tore his labrum. Thompson appears to be fully healthy heading into the 2020 season, and Seattle is releasing him as a salary cap move. Hopefully another team trusts that he’s healthy enough to play at a high level, as it could be difficult to get a physical given current league conditions.

ESPN is reporting that Jarran Reed has agreed to re-sign with the Seahawks on a two-year deal worth $23M. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: By bringing back Reed, the Seahawks are hoping that he can return to his 2018 form when he had 10.5 sacks. Last season the defensive tackle missed the first six games due to a suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Reed had 27 combined tackles and two sacks last season for the Seahawks.

Former Seahawks OL George Fant has agreed to a three-year deal worth $30M with the New York Jets. $13.7M will be guaranteed. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Jets might have reached a bit on this signing, but Fant gets his money and New York apparently gets their LT. He was a rotational offensive lineman in Seattle, but he’ll hope to get his footing with the Jets and become a mainstay on the o-line.

The Seahawks told reporters that they expect Will Dissly to be ready for Week 1 of the 2020 season. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dissly tore his Achilles in November and required surgery which ended his season. He was off to a promising start for the Seahawks and fantasy owners. The team recently signed veteran Greg Olsen and has Jacob Hollister, who was decent in his own right in 2019, on the roster. This is a tricky situation for fantasy purposes, and it could be a committee approach at an already weak position in 2020.

Russell Wilson spoke openly about wanting Seattle's offense to be more up-tempo next season. (Source: Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: Seattle has been team #EstablishTheRun for as long as Wilson has been their quarterback. In 2019 they ranked 24th in situation-neutral pace. Despite that slow pace the offense ranked ninth in the league in points scored. If the Seahawks ever opened up their playbook to let Wilson shine a bit more it would do wonders for his fantasy value. It'll be difficult to project that happening until we hear the coaches express the same desire, however.

Tyler Lockett caught nine passes for 136 yards and a touchdown as the Seahawks fell to the Packers 28-23 in the Divisional Round.

Fantasy Impact: It was a strange fantasy season for Lockett, who began the season on a tear before dealing with some injuries and underperformance. However, it all amounted to a 1,000+ yard season with eight touchdowns. If the 27-year-old stays healthy next season he should have a good chance to best those numbers.

Category: Game Recaps

Travis Homer rushed three times for 13 yards and caught two passes for 27 yards in the Seahawks' 28-23 Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: He was out-touched by Marshawn Lynch 12-to-5. Homer saw some run down the stretch with both Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (knee) sidelined, finishing 14 receptions over Seattle's final three games. However, he likely won't be very fantasy relevant come 2020.

Category: Game Recaps

Marshawn Lynch rushed 12 times for 26 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' 28-23 Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact: He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Lynch finishes his three-game run with Seattle with a rushing line of 30-67-4. The touchdowns were nice from a fantasy perspective but he didn't show a lot of juice left in his legs. We expect him to stay retired this time.

Jaron Brown (knee sprain) has been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Eagles. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: There is little fantasy impact to Brown's absence. Expect Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf to dominate targets in an advantageous matchup this afternoon.
