Fantasy Impact: It appears Metcalf may have a more versatile role in this new offense under OC Ryan Grubb. That could include him lining up in the slot more this season, moving all over the line. The Seahawks offense figures to look a lot different under Grubb.

Fantasy Impact: Walker spent parts of 2023 with the Chicago Bears and Cleveland Browns, starting two games and throwing one touchdown to five interceptions. He has started nine games in his career and has a 6-16 TD-INT ratio. With Geno Smith and Sam Howell on the roster, Walker wouldn't need to serve as more than an emergency QB if he sticks with the team.

Seahawks GM said they viewed Pharaoh Brown as one of the NFL’s best two or three blocking tight ends. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown landed a deal this offseason with the Seahawks after spending last season with the Patriots. He has never had a huge role in the passing game throughout his career, so Noah Fant should be in line to take over as the clear top receiving tight end for the Seahawks this season.

Sam Howell said he is adjusting to backup role again with the Seahawks. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: “In this league, to be able to play, you’ve got to compete and that’s what I’m willing to do, no matter what the situation is, no matter who the starter is,” Howell said. "If I’m the starter, I’m coming to compete every single day,” Howell added that he has been able to learn under Geno Smith. The 2022 fifth-round pick talked about how he learned last season how costly his mistakes can be for his team. “I think I could play some smarter ball. I think there were times where we were down big in some games, I was a little too aggressive just trying to make something happen trying to get us back in the game,” Howell said.

Jerome Baker is not expected to return to the field until training camp. (Source: ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Baker is continuing to rehab a wrist injury. Seahawks coach Mike Macdonald said the team is “trying to be creative in the building to make sure” Baker gets all that he can out of the offseason program despite the lack of time on the field and will be “ready to roll” for his first season in Seattle.

Geno Smith told reporters he has “a really good grasp" of the offense under new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: “I feel like I’m a dropback passer and I feel like this is a dropback offense," Smith said. Grubb came to Seattle from the University of Washington where he coached Michael Penix Jr. This is likely going to be a completely different offense compared to what the Seahawks ran under Pete Carroll.

Leonard Williams was not at Seahawks practice on Wednesday. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: These are all voluntary OTAs right now, so it is too early to be worried. DK Metcalf was also sidelined on Wednesday.

AJ Barner is still sidelined from practice. (Source: Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Barner also missed rookie minicamp. The rookie out of Michigan is dealing with a hamstring injury. He'll continue to sit until he is fully healthy.

Fantasy Impact: "It’s hard to tell," Macdonald said. "We’re shooting for camp right now. Abe’s getting after it in rehab, so I’m proud of his effort he’s putting in." The former third-round pick out of Washington State dealt with knee injuries throughout last season that limited him.

Former Seattle Seahawks RB DeeJay Dallas plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals when the new league year starts. (Source: Jordan Schultz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dallas, a former fourth-round pick who has spent the last four seasons with Seattle, is set to join the Cardinals, staying in the NFC West. The former Miami Hurricane will likely occupy a similar role in the desert as he did in Seattle: depth RB who serves as a returner and special teams contributor. Dallas has played over 50% of his team's special teams snaps each of the last three seasons and will provide depth alongside James Conner, Emari Demercado and Michael Carter.

Drew Lock signs with Giants

The Giants signed Drew Lock to a one-year deal worth $5 million. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lock was part of the trade that sent Russell Wilson to the Seahawks. He made two starts last season in Seattle. He will likely backup Daniel Jones, though it is possible there is a bit of a competition in training camp. It'll also be worth monitoring to see if the Giants draft a quarterback next month.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis will join Robert Hunt as the big free agent additions to the offensive line made by Carolina. He spent the first four years of his career in Seattle where he spent the majority of his time as a starter. Carolina making a clear emphasis to improve the interior of the offensive line.

The Seahawks have re-signed Noah Fant to a two-year deal worth $21 million. (Source: Jordan Schultz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fant was part of the trade package that sent Russell Wilson to Seattle from the Broncos. He had a limited role last season sharing snaps with Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson. With those two leaving in free agency, Fant should be on the field a lot more and could be an intriguing tight end to target in the double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts.
