Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led the league in 2019 with 40 big-time throws (Pro Football Focus' highest-graded throws on precise downfield passes).
Huddle Up: And Wilson did it on 516 passing attempts, which tied for 12th in the league while playing for the run-heavy Seahawks. Wilson, though, still finished third among fantasy QBs -- his seventh top-10 finish in eight seasons -- so pass-heavy or not, count on Wilson to deliver top-end fantasy QB1 numbers.

Seattle Seahawks TE Colby Parkinson (foot) had surgery June 2 to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his foot and has been rehabbing since, according to a report Friday, June 19.
Huddle Up: An untimely setback for the fourth-round pick, setting him further below the fantasy radar screen with veterans Greg Olsen and Jacob Hollister already ahead of him on the Seattle TE depth chart.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 1,545 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on play-action passes during the 2019 regular season and postseason.
Huddle Up: Wilson has been one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL for several seasons and will have a good group of pass catchers again this season. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/13/2020 6:06 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led all quarterbacks with a 94.6 Pro Football Focus grade on passing plays lasting longer than 3 seconds in 2019.
Huddle Up: Wilson's keeping-the-play alive skills have contributed mightily to his fantasy success -- he's been a top-11 fantasy QB in each of his eight seasons -- and he's arguably the most logical QB pick once Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes are off the board in drafts this summer.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is making solid progress in his recovery but will not be rushed back to the field, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said the team can wait for Penny because of the addition of RB Carlos Hyde.
Huddle Up: Penny is expected to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, so he probably will miss the first half of the season. Fantasy players can keep an eye on him, but he likely will be available on the waiver wire during the season.
Posted 6/08/2020 7:40 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde said he knows that he will be competing for the No. 2 running back job and that RB Chris Carson is the starting running back.
Huddle Up: Hyde should be able to earn the backup role and probably will see some carries each game. He can be considered a possible No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues and probably should be a handcuff to Carson.
Posted 5/31/2020 1:25 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf dropped 10.8 percent of his catchable targets in 2019, ranking 67th out of 80 qualified receivers.
Huddle Up: Metcalf still managed 900 yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie campaign despite the drops, and he should see even more targets in his second season. Consider him a high-upside WR3 for 2020.
Posted 5/28/2020 8:54 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) officially signed with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, May 28. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will serve as the No. 2 running back this upcoming season if Chris Carson is healthy but should still see some carries each game. He should be at least a handcuff to Carson in fantasy leagues but could also be a No. 4 running back on rosters.
Posted 5/26/2020 10:59 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde is expected to complement RB Chris Carson with early-down work in 2020, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.
Huddle Up: Hyde won't begin the 2020 campaign with much fantasy value after totaling 1,112 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns with the Houston Texans a year ago. Both Carson and Rashaad Penny are superior fantasy options when all three are healthy.
Posted 5/23/2020 5:23 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is still one of the team's 'primary offensive weapons' despite the Friday, May 22, signing of free agent RB Carlos Hyde, according to a team beat reporter. The reporter added that the Seahawks signed Hyde to 'complement' Carson rather than 'take (his) job.'
Huddle Up: Carson hit career highs with 278 rushes, 1,230 rushing yards and 315 total touches in 2019 and remains Seattle's clear lead back if his hip issues doesn't carry over into 2020. Value him as a RB2 with Hyde signed as more of insurance policy if Rashaad Penny (knee) has to begin the year on the PUP list.
Posted 5/22/2020 10:08 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, May 22, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will serve as the No. 2 running back if Chris Carson is ready to play but would be the starter if Carson suffers a setback. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation during training camp because Hyde could be at least a handcuff to Carson in leagues.
Posted 5/21/2020 8:57 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw 13 touchdown passes against the blitz this past season.
Huddle Up: Wilson finished third in the NFL with 31 touchdowns and also ranked sixth with 4,110 yards. He has been a consistent fantasy producer for players over the last several season and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback again in 2020.
Posted 5/20/2020 9:04 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) has received some interest from the Seattle Seahawks this offseason.
Huddle Up: Hyde rushed for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns this past season but has not received a lot of interest during free agency. He likely would be the main backup at running back if he signed with the Seahawks and see a handful of carries each game. He may only be a handcuff to another running back in 2020 if he does not find a starting job.
Posted 5/19/2020 10:19 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 26 touchdowns with just two turnover-worthy plays on passes 20-plus yards downfield in 2018 and 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks added another big-play threat this offseason in WR Phillip Dorsett to complement the top duo of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Wilson will likely again be available at a discount in 2020 drafts, despite routinely finishing as one of the top fantasy options at his position.
Posted 5/18/2020 11:32 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson forced 62 missed tackles during the 2019 season, which ranked third among running backs.
Huddle Up: Carson is recovering from surgery this offseason but is optimistic about his availability for the start of the 2020 season. He will see plenty of carries if he is healthy and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/16/2020 8:16 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw 48 incompletions from 2017-2019 on positively-graded throws, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Wilson threw for a three-year high of 4,110 yards in 2019 as he seemed to be helped greatly by the addition of rookie WR DK Metcalf. With TE Greg Olsen and WR Phillip Dorsett added this offseason, Wilson may have the best supporting cast of his career. He's a top-tier QB1.
Posted 5/12/2020 8:20 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR Phillip Dorsett said Tuesday, May 12, he feels he's now in the proper system after turning down an offer from the Seahawks to re-sign with the New England Patriots a year ago. 'I feel like this is the right offense for me,' he said. 'Obviously I know (QB Russell Wilson), and he's a great quarterback. The way he plays quarterback and the way this offense is fits my skill set.'
Huddle Up: Dorsett caught 29 of 54 targets for 397 yards and a career-high five touchdowns across 14 games played last season. He'll begin the 2020 season behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf on the depth chart and will compete with David Moore and sixth-round rookie Freddie Swain for snaps and targets. He won't begin the season with fantasy relevance, but he could become a streaming candidate later in the year.
Posted 5/11/2020 2:09 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) has received interest from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Hyde returned to prominence with a 1,000-yard season last year, which was the first of his career. He turns 30 in September, but he could be an RB3 if given a big enough bite of the apple.
Posted 5/01/2020 12:37 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is doing great and will be ready for the start of the season, according to general manager John Schneider Thursday, April 30.
Huddle Up: Carson will be a high-end RB2 without any expected missed time to begin the season, especially with RB Rashaad Penny likely to begin the 2020 campaign on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Posted 5/01/2020 12:32 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) will begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to general manager John Schneider Thursday, April 30. 'He's doing great but it was a late-season injury,' Schneider said. Penny tore his ACL Dec. 8 and it usually requires a 9-10 month recovery.
Huddle Up: Penny is the No. 2 option in the Seahawks' backfield, behind Chris Carson, but he was emerging late in the 2019 season and showed both RBs can be relevant together. He should be stashed as an RB5 or 6 with some missed time expected.
Posted 4/29/2020 5:36 am UTC
With both Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (knee) coming off season-ending injuries, the team may be a bit thin at the position entering training camp. Enter rookie RB DeeJay Dallas, a fourth-round draft selection. Dallas adds versatility to the Seattle backfield, as he previously played wide receiver before converting to running back. Dallas also has experience as a punt and kick returner. He might be a decent fit for the team as a third-down back, but Dallas said he'll do whatever the team asks of him.
Huddle Up: Don't dive in just yet in fantasy football circles, but Dallas should be on your watch list as the summer plays out.
Posted 4/15/2020 9:59 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf probably will be moved around the field and asked to run more routes next season, according to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. '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. It will be an incredible, incredible advantage for us as we head into next season,' Schottenheimer said.
Huddle Up: Metcalf had an outstanding rookie season and finished with 900 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season. It seems like he could see more targets in 2020, which would make him a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 4/15/2020 2:49 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (knee) have reportedly made enough progress in the offseason to make offensive coordinator Bryan Schottenheimer 'feel really good about both of (them) coming back.' 'Obviously, they both had significant injuries. Chris has been through some injuries before. I think it was his rookie year before I got here he had the leg fracture. I think he'll be great. It sounds like they're doing well when we get our updates from those guys. Rashaad (is) a guy that really hasn't had to deal with that adversity before but I think that we really saw him mature last year. He was really playing terrific football for us. We saw a difference with just the way he practiced, the way he prepared. Nobody wants to see their players get injured but the injury happened at a time where he was really kind of peaking and feeling great about himself and maturing as a young man and as a football player and I think that's just going to lead into him having a terrific rehab as well,' Schottenheimer said in an interview with Sports Radio 950 KJR.
Huddle Up: At the moment, Carson's status for training camp remains up in the air with his hip fracture. Meanwhile, Penny will be fortunate to avoid the Physically Unable to Perform list with his torn anterior cruciate ligament. Fantasy owners should expect Seattle to use a draft pick at the position and pair him up with Travis Homer for now, at least until Carson's recovery timeline becomes clearer.
Posted 3/24/2020 7:00 pm UTC
Free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, March 24. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Dorsett will compete for the WR3 role in Seattle behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. He'll also be competing for targets with TEs Greg Olsen and Will Dissly, and RBs Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. He won't be a fantasy option unless a bigger role opens up in the event of injury.
Posted 3/16/2020 7:06 pm UTC
Free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett (Patriots) said he is receiving preliminary interest from the New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Dorsett is coming off a disappointing second half of the 2019 season but can be a top three receiver for a team. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Dorsett could be a late round pick in fantasy drafts in 2020.
Posted 3/16/2020 2:48 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) posted a video of himself on social media taking part in footwork drills.
Huddle Up: Penny continues to move forward in his recovery, but it remains unclear if he will be ready for Week 1. He's at least worth rostering as a handcuff for Chris Carson, and there's a chance Penny could have some flex appeal in Seattle's run-heavy attack.
Posted 3/11/2020 8:16 pm UTC
Houston Texans impending free-agent RB Carlos Hyde has rejected a contract offer from the Texans and will test the free-agent market, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hyde is coming off the best season of his career and will be looking for a solid contract in free agency. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job this offseason but can be a No. 3 fantasy running back if he receives most of the carries for a team.
Posted 3/09/2020 3:36 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) 'should be absolutely fine' for the start of he 2020 season, according to head coach Pete Carroll, but Carroll added that Carson will be brought along slowly. 'We won't overdo it with him,' Carroll said. 'He's had two great back-to-back seasons. We're going to take care of him throughout all the way to game time.'
Huddle Up: Carson has established himself as the lead back for an offense that loves to run the ball. He should at least be a volume-based, high-floor RB2 in 2020.
Posted 3/09/2020 2:49 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks TE Greg Olsen 'will make a very fast transition' into the offense, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Olsen's age isn't on his side, but we saw Russell Wilson turn Jimmy Graham back into a force in the red zone. Wilson could do the same for Olsen, making him worth a look as a low-end TE1.
