Fantasy Impact: Prosise should see most of the receptions out of the backfield, possibly sending J.D. McKissic to the bench. Regardless, Prosise needs a prove it game before he's started.

Jimmy Graham was targeted eight times on Sunday, catching six for 37 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Impact: It was nice to see Graham being heavily targeted, especially in the red zone. Owners may want to see his yardage increase, but overall have to be happy with his usage.

Russell Wilson through for 198 yards with a TD and an INT in the win against the Rams on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson seemed off his game against the Rams, but he did just enough to secure the win. He has a nice matchup with the Giants next week, putting him in the QB1 conversation.

Blair Walsh finished 3-for-3 on field goals (48, 49, 35) and 1-for-1 on extra points in Seattle's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Seattle's offense struggled overall, but Walsh was perfect when called upon. He made his first field goal as time expired in the first half to tie the game at 10. He gave the Seahawks the lead midway through the third quarter, then forced the Rams to drive for a touchdown with no timeouts when he put Seattle up 16-10 with 1:09 to play. He is now 9-for-10 on both field goals and extra points and is tied for 16th in the NFL in scoring with 36 points. The Seahawks are off in Week 6, then face the Giants on the road in Week 7.

Tyler Lockett held in check

Tyler Lockett caught three passes on four targets for 26 yards, rushed once for seven yards and returned a punt for 10 yards in Seattle's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Lockett drew the shortest straw in Seattle's receiving quartet, finishing behind Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham in receptions, yards and targets. He was efficient, though, in that he picked up four first downs. His lone rushing attempt came from the Rams' 11-yard line. Lockett had torched the Rams in 2016, catching 11 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown in two meetings, but Seattle's offense struggled as a whole in this one. Lockett remains involved in the offense, but he has not scored a touchdown this season and has only one since Week 16 of 2015. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 6, then face the Giants on the road in Week 7.

Paul Richardson caught three passes on five targets for 35 yards in Seattle's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson did all of his damage on Seattle's final drive of the first half, which led to a Blair Walsh field goal. He was not targeted in the second half. It was the first game in which Richardson did not have at least 59 yards or a touchdown. He'll look to rebound when the Seahawks travel to face the Giants after their Week 6 bye.

Doug Baldwin caught four passes on eight targets for 37 yards in Seattle's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Though Baldwin tied Jimmy Graham for the team lead in targets, he got one deep target and no red zone targets in a defensive struggle. He also did not catch a pass in the second half. Baldwin has now failed to exceed 45 yards in three of his five games and has only scored one touchdown. Perhaps the groin injury he suffered at the end of Week 3 is more serious than he's letting on. He'll have some extra time to heal as the Seahawks will have their bye in Week 6.

J.D. McKissic ran for zero yards on two carries but caught three passes on five targets for 36 yards in the Seahawks' win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: If McKissic's workload wasn't bad enough, it could get a lot worse when C.J. Prosise returns. McKissic has a nice ceiling, the only question is if he'll be given the chance to reach it.

Category: Game Recaps


Thomas Rawls ran for 20 yards on eight carries and had two receptions on three targets for 15 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: A minuscule victory for Rawls, who's 20 yards lead the team in rushing despite being the RB2. It's possible Rawls will see more carries in Week 7 following the Seahawks bye week, but it's nothing to get hopes up for.

Category: Game Recaps


Eddie Lacy ran for 19 yards on nine carries with one reception for nine yards in the Seahawks' win against the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Lacy had his moments, but was disappointing despite leading the team in carries. The only thing that seems certain is Lacy's workload, which is unlikely to increase.

Seahawks DST shines in win

Sun, Oct 8th 7:37pm EDT

SEA

The Seattle Seahawks DST shined in their Week 5 win over the Rams, forcing five turnovers. The team allowed 10 points on 375 yards with sacks coming from Michael Bennett and Frank Clark. Earl Thomas was the star of the show, forcing a goal line fumble preventing a Todd Gurley touchdown and later caught a key interception. Sheldon Richardson paired his first career interception with a fumble recovery of his own. Neiko Thorpe also recovered a kickoff that was fumbled by Tavon Austin.

Fantasy Impact: A dominant performance from a Cliff Avril-less defense. The Seahawks will head to New York following their Week 6 bye to play the Giants, who just lost Odell Beckham Jr.

Bobby Wagner recorded six tackles, including four solo, half a sack on three quarterback hits and recovered a fumble that he returned for a touchdown in Sunday night's 46-18 victory over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Wagner is an every week LB1 and showed that even when his usual tackle totals aren't there he can still salvage his day with a big play. Wagner is one of the best and is an unquestioned start each week, he is too good not to produce.

Fantasy Impact: Carson suffered a fracture below his left knee after totaling 66 yards on 15 touches in the fourth quarter of the Sunday night win. As a result, he will miss an extended period, if not the remainder of the year. For the Seahawks running back situation moving forward, it is a crap shoot from a fantasy perspective. While Carson was pulling away as the RB1, Seattle's backfield will revert back to a RBBC approach until the next hot hand emerges. The likeliest of unlikeliest of names to emerge, however, is J.D. McKissic, who scored a pair of TDs on five touches in his second appearance in an NFL regular season game last night.

Michael Bennett recorded three tackles, two solo and two for loss, and one batted ball while also recording one sack on two quarterback hits.

Fantasy Impact: Bennett has started the year off strong by recording two and a half sacks through two weeks. Father time hasn't appeared to have caught up with Bennett who looks better so far this year than last which earned him a contract extension. Bennett is still considered a DL2 because he doesn't get as many tackles as you would like but he has planted himself firmly in the high end range.

Richard Sherman (hamstring) is expected to play in a home matchup against San Francisco. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Sherman not playing would have been a relief for the struggling 49ers offense. However, a hamstring is something that can be easily aggravated or can limit his effeciveness. It wouldn't be a surprise if the 49ers tested him early to see how healthy he is, which can lead to a big IDP day for Sherman if he is healthy.

Shaquill Griffin finished yesterday's loss to Green Bay with ten solo tackles and a pass defensed in a little over three quarters of action.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin was thrust into action because of Jeremy Lane's ejection and didn't disappoint. His performance just goes to show that whoever is opposite Richard Sherman has value in IDP leagues because of the volume they will see. Griffin however will only have value if Lane isn't playing.

Category: Game Recaps


Jeremy Lane logged one tackle before being ejected on a questionable call where the referee said he threw a punch. It occurred on an interception return for a touchdown that would have been the only of the day for Seattle had it not been called back.

Fantasy Impact: The call was questionable at best, as the replay didn't show a punch. This doesn't factor into his fantasy value, however, but what does is he plays opposite Richard Sherman. Whoever plays opposite Sherman will be targeted a lot and where there is volume there is value. Lane is a solid start for IDP leagues requiring you to start a cornerback.

Former Seahwk RB Alex Collins has signed with the Ravens practice squad. (Source: Tom Pelissero via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Despite being pushed two years in a row by RBs with less pedigree (Troymaine Pope in 2016, Chris Carson in 2017), Collins was simply a victim of a crowded Seahawks backfield. His limited work in the NFL and impressive track record at Arkansas give hope to Collins producing in the future. He joins a Ravens backfield that consists of either uninspiring (Terrance West, Buck Allen) or undersized (Danny Woodhead) options. Being picked up by an RB starved team like the Ravens was the best thing for Collins's fantasy prospects going forward. Don't get cute and add him to your redraft rosters, but keep him on your watch lists.

Trevone Boykin cut by Seahawks

The Seahawks have cut second-year QB Trevone Boykin. (Source: Seahawks Website)

Fantasy Impact: An interesting prospect on paper, Boykin played himself out of a job, throwing four interceptions in the preseason. The good and the bad was on display, as Boykin averaged a respectable 8.2 yards per attempt, but showed a tendency to overthrow open receivers. The backup QB job will now go to Austin Davis who looked respectable during his limited preseason action. Though Davis has some starting experience in the NFL the drop off from Russell Wilson to Davis is possibly the steepest starter to backup drop in the NFL. To put it plainly, if Wilson misses any time the Seahawks offense goes from fantasy friendly to fantasy wasteland. Boykin is expected to clear waivers and will probably remain in orbit on the Seahawks practice squad.

The Seahawks have cut third-year WR Kasen Williams. (Source: The Gee Scott via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams has to be asking himself what else he has to do to start a year on an NFL roster. In orbit with the Seahawks as a practice squad player since 2015, Williams erupted for a 9-208-1 preseason line, turning in multiple highlight-reel grabs. Something of a local hero (Williams attended high school in the Seattle area, and played for the University of Washington) who was ticketed for a high draft slot before encountering injuries in college, Williams looked to be returning to form. He looks to be a candidate to be claimed by another team, and if not he is almost certain to be signed to the Seahawks practice squad. Entering his Age 25 season, there is a case for rostering Williams in deep dynasty formats.
