NFC West

Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach Tom Cable told the media he is "concerned" about running back C.J. Prosise's (groin) "dependability after his injury-filed" 2016 campaign. (Source: Greg Bell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Prosise, who suffered a groin injury during pregame warmups of the Seahawks' second preseason contest against the Vikings, could be falling out of favor with coaches in the wake of his most recent injury. Although he's been sidelined for the past two practices, he has yet to be ruled out of Seattle's next exhibition game against the Chiefs, which is a good sign. However, even if Prosise is good to go, I'd expect the Seahawks to take the cautious approach with their oft-injured rusher and hold him out until the regular season.

Thomas Rawls did not play Friday against the Vikings. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says Rawls is "dealing with a minor ankle injury."

Fantasy Impact: Eddie Lacy started as a result. Rawls will likely resume starting duties when he returns and remains the top option out of Seattle in standard formats.

Chris Carson ran for 27 yards on six carries in the Seahawks' preseason win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Carson improved on his preseason opener, minus the touchdowns. Carson is highly praised and could be a steal in deep dynasty formants.

Mike Davis saw six carries and ran for 37 yards in the Seahawks' preseason win over the Vikings

Fantasy Impact: Mike Davis has a nice night. Davis averaged 6.2 yards per carry, the highest of the Seahawks' running backs. Regardless, Davis is fighting for a roster spot rather than a starting job. Davis won't have much fantasy relevance.

Eddie Lacy started for the Seahawks as Thomas Rawls sat out. Lacy ran for 20 yards on six carries as the Seahawks beat the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: As the running back race continues, Lacy seems less worth the risk at his current ADP. Thomas Rawls remains the safest option in standard formats.

The Seattle Seahawks DST only gave up 13 points on 320 yards. The Seahawks also recovered two fumbles, one interception and recorded one sack on seven quarterback hits.

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks improved on their preseason opener. The team also signed Tramaine Brock. Seattle is a top DST option yet again.

Alex Collins ran for 58 yards on 10 carries in the Seahawks' preseason win over the Vikings

Fantasy Impact: Collins, who was getting lost in the mix, saw the most work of the Seahawks' running backs on Friday. Collins still isn't a very good fantasy option, but it's a step in the right direction.

Blair Walsh made two field goals (52, 52) on three attempts and made both extra point attempts in Seattle's 20-13 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Walsh very nearly made a third field goal from 53 yards out, but it was just short and bounced off the crossbar. He is now 4-for-5 on field goals and 8-for-8 on extra points in two preseason games. He now has 20 points and is second only to Justin Tucker (22) in preseason scoring. Walsh will look to stay on track when the Seahawks host the Chiefs on Friday.

Kasen Williams caught two passes on four targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's 20-13 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: With Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson both nursing injuries, Williams played with the first offense and continued his impressive preseason. He caught a 1-yard touchdown on a fade pass on Seattle's opening drive, then followed it up with an open-field tackle on the ensuing kickoff that forced the Vikings to start at their own 12. He nearly scored again from 45 yards out, though he dropped the pass while falling backward into the end zone. Williams will continue his quest for regular season playing time Friday when the Seahawks host Kansas City.

Doug Baldwin caught all four of his targets for 69 yards in Seattle's 20-13 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Baldwin led the Seahawks in receiving yards thanks in large part to a 37-yard catch-and-run from Russell Wilson late in the first quarter. Baldwin sat out Seattle's first preseason game due to a minor foot injury that appears to be behind him. He'll look for another solid, injury-free performance when the Seahawks host the Chiefs on Friday.

When Pete Carroll was asked by beat writer Gregg Bell on whether or not Paul Richardson would be ready for Week 1, Carroll said that they were stunned to see him on the practice field today and that he'll definitely be ready for Week 1. (Source: Gregg Bell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is massive for Richardson, who hasn't been able to stay healthy over the last few years. Even when he was healthy, the Seahawks continued to trot out Jermaine Kearse. That all changed this training camp, as Richardson was running with Doug Baldwin as the No. 1 and No. 2 options. In the first preseason game, Richardson only played three snaps before he injured his shoulder, but he saw two targets on those snaps that netted two catches for 30 yards. If you saw the catch he was hurt on, it was of the highlight variety, showing his willingness to go all-out, even in a meaningless game. The former second-round draft pick has a chance to deliver WR3 value if he can get on the field in two-wide receiver sets. He's free in fantasy drafts right now.

Fantasy Impact: Lockett, who opened training camp on the PUP list, was activated Friday and began practicing with the team. With Jermaine Kearse fading -- Paul Richardson is working ahead of him at camp -- Lockett appears poised to enter 2017 as Seattle's WR2 or WR3.

Trevone Boykin's court date has been pushed to August 22nd. Boykin, arrested on March 27th for public intoxication and drug possession then again on April 6th for parole violation, is facing up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. (Source: 12thManRising)

Fantasy Impact: Boykin used to be Seattle's only backup to Russell Wilson on the active roster. After his arrests Seattle signed former Browns QB Austin Davis. Seattle has been involved in rumors regarding former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. Boykin's future is unknown.


Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (ankle/ MCL) told the media that he feels fully healthy at OTAs. “I feel great, my body is 100 percent,” Wilson said via the Seahawks Wire. “Running fast, feeling strong, throwing the ball well and all that. It’s been a great offseason.” (Source: Seahawks Wire)

Fantasy Impact: Wilson, who dealt with lingering ankle and MCL injuries for the duration of the 2016 season, told the press he feels "100 percent" healthy at OTAs. Although he did not miss any games last season, Wilson's production reflected his health not being fully intact. His mobility was clearly affected by the injuries as he posted career lows in rushing attempts (72), yards (259) and touchdowns (one). As a mobile quarterback, Wilson relies heavily on his ability to scramble and extend plays with his legs. If he can make a full recovery, Wilson could return to the high-end QB1 tier as a must-start option for the 2017 fantasy football campaign.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told the media safety Earl Thomas (leg) is "on track" to play in the season opener. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas, who is recovering from a broken leg suffered last December, is expected to be ready for the season opener. Although he is said to be "ahead of schedule" in his rehab, Thomas' availability for training camp remains up in the air. Still, Carroll is suggesting a Week 1 return for the Pro Bowl defensive back.

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider told KIRO-AM Seattle on Wednesday that "the news is real" regarding the possibility of trading cornerback Richard Sherman. "I think we're a very unique organization in that regard. We have a great relationship with a lot of our players," Schneider said. "There's very much an openness. What you've seen lately in the news is real. That's on both sides. It's just open communication." (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: It appears that Sherman is very much on the trading block as Schneider confirmed Wednesday. The 29-year-old cornerback has been one of, if not the best player at his position over the course of the last four seasons and would likely garner a first round draft pick in return for his services. Expect the Patriots, Cowboys and Falcons to be in the mix to attempt to acquire Sherman leading up to the NFL Draft that begins on April 27.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the former Seattle Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka is expected to sign with the Buffalo Bills Thursday. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hauschka's tenure in Seattle is over after six years with the club. The free agent kicker is expected to sign with Buffalo Thursday. Hauschka was successful on 33-of-37 field goal attempts, good for 89.2 percent, and 29-of-35 extra point attempts in 2016 and was reliable more times than not throughout the year. Despite being a top fantasy kicker in recent years, singing with Buffalo will likely hinder his value for 2017.

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll "gave a strong indication" that tight end Jimmy Graham would be retained for the 2017 season. "I thought Jimmy had a terrific year," Carroll said of the 30-year-old tight end. "He was explosive. He was dynamic. He blocked like he's never blocked before. He became a factor on the perimeter blocking stuff, and he's a highlight film. He's got so many big plays that he made during the year." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Graham, who is entering his contract year in 2017, finally had his breakout campaign as a member of the Seahawks in 2016. After an injury-plagued 2015, his first year with the club in which he struggled mightily, Graham bounced back this season finishing the year with a 65-923-6 stat line while playing in all 16 games. Although the Seahawks could opt to release Graham without taking a dead cap hit this offseason -- he's due no guaranteed money of his $10 million salary for 2017 -- Seattle's best option is likely to let him play out the final year of his deal before making a decision on his future. His recent injury history and age will play a role in whether or not he will be re-signed in 2018. Graham and quarterback Russell Wilson showcased a tremendous rapport that continued to develop throughout the year. If Seattle elects to part ways with the tight end this offseason, they would have to fill a gaping hole at a position that was the Achilles heel of their offense in the years prior to acquiring Graham.

Marcel Reece (bruised foot) was a doubt for the Divisional Playoff round against the Falcons, but should be good to go. Reece has two carries for 0 yards this season, but is a huge part of the running game with his blocking at fullback. (Source: Adam Caplan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The fear for Reece was that he broke his foot and head coach Pete Carroll dismissed this fear yesterday. Reece did have a 31-yard reception this season, one of his five catches for 72 yards, but his main job is to fuel the running game that had 177 yards in the Wild Card round. Atlanta ranked 25th against fantasy RB this season and Reece will have to help Thomas Rawls and Co. keep the ball from MVP candidate Matt Ryan and the Falcons.

Jermaine Kearse saw six targets as Seattle trailed nearly from the opening snap, but only reeled in one catch for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact: Kearse again drew many looks from Russell Wilson when things went badly, and again things went from bad to worse.
