Seattle Seahawks

NFC West

Fantasy Impact: "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.

Tyler Lockett caught 2-of-4 targets for 43 yards in a 30-20 loss to the Rams in the first round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: After a 90-yard, two touchdown performance in Week 17 against the 49ers, Lockett was held in check against the Rams, totaling just 43 yards on four targets. Lockett has one more year left on his three-year contract, so he'll be back in blue and green for at least one more season.

Russell Wilson completed just 11-of-27 passes for 174 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in a 30-20 loss to the Rams in the Wild Card round of the playoffs on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson completed just 40.7 percent of his passes against the Rams, who were able to get pressure on the quarterback the entire game. Wilson was sacked five times, and was left scrambling for his life throughout the game. He was able to make some incredible plays down the stretch, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Rams' stout play on defense.

D.K. Metcalf caught 5-of-11 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-20 loss to the Rams in the Wild Card round of the playoffs on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Metcalf saw more than double the amount of targets as fellow wide receiver Tyler Lockett on Saturday against the Rams. He made the most of his opportunities, catching two touchdowns in an attempt to help the Seahawks come back against the Rams, but it wasn't enough. Metcalf heads into the offseason as a consensus top-5 wide receiver by most accounts.

Chris Carson rushed 16 times for 77 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for another five yards in a 30-20 loss to the Rams in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Carson saw 16 of 20 total RB carries against the Rams and operated as the feature runner, although he wasn't able to get much going against a stout Rams front seven. He'll be a free agent heading into the offseason, so it'll be interesting to see if the Seahawks decide to re-sign Carson for 2021 and beyond.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was added to the team's injury report and is now questionable for Wild Card Weekend. (Source: Seahawks PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Late additions to the injury report are never a good sign. DeeJay Dallas could see snaps if Penny doesn't play, but neither of these backs will be fantasy relevant.

Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (shoulder) has been removed from the team's final injury report and will play in Wild Card Weekend against the Rams. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Adams entered the week projected as a game-time decision but he's suddenly ready to go. We fully expect him to be limited on Saturday, but his presence alone will be a boost to Seattle's defense.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde (illness) will play in Saturday’s Wild Card game against the Rams. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hyde missed the season-finale against the 49ers due to a non-COVID-19 related illness. Seahawks HC Pete Carol said “Hyde will be back this week.” He will most likely serve as the Seahawks backup RB to Chris Carson. With Rashaad Penny also returning from injury, Hyde could see even a lesser role in Saturday’s contest.

Greg Olsen (foot) will not play in Week 17's game against the 49ers. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Greg Olsen’s injury was considered season-ending when he suffered a plantar fascia tear in November. He has been trying to get back on the field since Week 15, but it appears as if he just can’t shake the injury. He’ll hope to make it back for the playoffs but there are no guarantees, especially with the lingering nature of this foot injury.

Jacob Hollister caught 2-of-6 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in a Week 16 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Hollister caught a touchdown for a second straight game. He totaled just 17 yards however on six targets. He seems to have taken over as the Seahawks’ primary tight end down the stretch, but is still limited due to his very low yards per target average.

Seahawks RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 16 vs. the Rams. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This was expected as Dallas was thought to be out multiple weeks after spraining his ankle in Week 15. It’ll be Chris Carson leading the way out of the backfield, with Carlos Hyde and Rashaad Penny operating in change of pace roles.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Seahawks WR Josh Gordon had a setback in his battle with substance abuse and won't be allowed to practice or play indefinitely. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gordon was set to rejoin the Seahawks this week but the league informed the team this morning that he hadn't complied with the terms of his conditional reinstatement. Once again, it's entirely up in the air as to whether or not we see Gordon play in the NFL again. He's a non-factor for fantasy teams outside of the deepest of dynasty formats.

David Moore caught 3-of-5 targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in a 40-3 blowout win over the Jets in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact: Moore now has six touchdown receptions on the season, but has only gained 357 total yards through the air. He has just 41 yards in his last five games, so he's truly a TD-dependent option in only the deepest of leagues. He'll get a crack at the Washington Football Team in Week 15.

Category: Game Recaps

Will Dissly caught 2-of-2 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in a 40-3 blowout win over the Jets in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact: Dissly found the end zone in this one, but he's been difficult to trust of late, even without Greg Olsen in the lineup. He hasn't topped five targets or 38 yards in a single game this season, and has just two touchdowns on the year. He's a very low-end TE2 at best in Week 15 against Washington.

Seahawks’ DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) will not play in Sunday’s Week 14 contest against the Jets. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dunlap was unable to practice all and was ruled out for Sunday's game. The Seahawks will start LDE L.J. Collier in his place. Even without Dunlap, the Seahawks are a popular streamer DST against the winless Jets in Week 14.

Travis Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) will not play in Sunday's Week 13 matchup against the Giants. (Source: Seahawks PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Homer out, expect Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde to see their typical workloads and DeeJay Dallas to see a possible uptick in a relief role.

Jason Myers connected on 3-of-3 field goal attempts and 2-of-2 PATs in a Week 12 win over the Eagles

Fantasy Impact: Myers is now 15-of-15 on field goal attempts on the year and has made 10 of those in his last four games. As long as the Seahawks are leading in most games, Myers remains a top-10 kicker option going forward.

Seattle Seahawks top corner Shaquill Griffin is active for Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles. (Source: John Boyle on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Griffin has been sidelined for the last four contests with a hamstring injury, and also a concussion. He was not quite at his Pro Bowl level form prior to the injury, so hopefully, the time off will help him become a feared number one again. His return represents a downgrade for Jalen Reagor and Travis Fulgham.

Seahawks RB Bo Scarbrough had to have surgery on his hamstring and will be out the remainder of the season. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Scarbrough tore his hamstring in his first game with the Seahawks and now he’ll miss the remainder of the season.

Seahawks' CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) was placed on IR prior to their 28-21 win over the Cardinals in Week 11. HC Pete Carroll stated Dunbar may return within the league's minimum three-week IR activation window, per source. (Source: Gregg Bell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dunbar was traded to the Seahawks in the offseason from Washington and hasn't quite lived up to expectations, totaling 30 tackles, five pass deflections and an interception in six games for Seattle. The Seahawks' secondary has struggled immensely in 2020, allowing 347.3 net passing yards per game.
