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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett said he will go into free agency with an open mind because of the reduced role he received with the Patriots this past season.
Huddle Up: Dorsett posted a career-high five touchdowns in 2019 but finished with only 29 receptions and 397 yards in 14 games. He probably will receive interest from multiple teams this offseason and could find a solid role with a team. Dorsett has a chance to be a late round option in some fantasy leagues depending on his situation.

Impending free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch hasn't shared his plans for the 2020 season, according to Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Lynch won't warrant fantasy consideration if he does return to the Seahawks. He'll be behind both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny when both are healthy and won't receive reliable work.
Posted 2/25/2020 9:42 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is expected to be ready for the start of the season, according to head coach Pete Carroll Tuesday, Feb. 25. Carroll added Carson isn't yet able to do much work.
Huddle Up: Carson rushed for a career-high 1,230 yards with seven touchdowns in 15 games before suffering the injury. He'll be a low-end RB1 entering 2020 with RB Rashaad Penny (knee) further behind in his recovery.
Posted 2/25/2020 9:38 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is likely to begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Pete Carroll Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Penny was just coming into his own in his sophomore season before suffering the injury. He's likely to again start the year behind RB Chris Carson on the backfield depth chart, but he'll be a high-upside RB4 option in the later rounds.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is signing a one-year, $7 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. The deal includes $5.5 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Olsen turns 35 in March and has a history of injuries in recent seasons, which makes him a risky option in any fantasy setting. The addition helps QB Russell Wilson the most and hurts TE Will Dissly (Achilles), whose outlook already was questionable after consecutive seasons ending due to major injuries. Olsen is a fringe starter in 12-team fantasy leagues but has limited upside, substantial risk, and figures to be inconsistent given all of Seattle's other ways to attack.
Posted 2/15/2020 2:21 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was able to use a stationary bike Tuesday, Feb. 11, for the first time since undergoing knee surgery.
Huddle Up: Penny is on track in his recovery, but it remains to be seen if he will be ready for Week 1. Even if he is healthy, he is slated to be the backup to Chris Carson. Penny could still be a fringe RB3 in Seattle's run-heavy offense, but at worst, he's a must-own handcuff.
Posted 2/14/2020 8:19 pm UTC
Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is having contract negotiations with the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Olsen met with all three teams over the last two weeks.
Huddle Up: Olsen has not officially said if he will play in 2020, but it appears he likely will play at least one more season. He likely would be the starter for all three teams and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/10/2020 2:41 pm UTC
Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is visiting the Washington Redskins through Monday, Feb. 10.
Huddle Up: Olsen is a brittle option without a lot of upside, but he still has some TE2 clout in PPR leagues.
Posted 2/06/2020 3:25 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson expressed a desire for the offense to utilize more of an up-tempo attack in 2020 during an interview with Pro Football Talk Live last week. 'I mean we've always been really good at two-minute (offense),' Wilson said. 'We've always been really good in those end of the half, those not always hurry-up situations, but those up-tempo situations (and) moments. And the reality is this: I think the defense gets tired, first thing. And I think the second thing is that, you know, I really know kind of what I want to get after them, how we want to get after them, especially in those moments. And guys just make plays in those moments. I think the freedom of just going after it and just scoring as many points, you know?'
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have long clamored for the Seahawks to give Wilson more opportunities in the passing game. The 31-year-old already carries a high fantasy ceiling, but it almost goes without saying that he could rival the best fantasy quarterbacks in a game if Seattle would ease up on its run-heavy ways early in games so Wilson could work his magic in the first half as well as the second. Regardless, he's a high-end fantasy QB1 for the foreseeable future.
Posted 2/05/2020 7:13 pm UTC
Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) said he hoped to receive interest from the Chicago Bears once he became a free agent but that he has not been contacted by the Bears at this time.
Huddle Up: The Bears struggled at the tight end position this season, so they could check in with Olsen at some point. Olsen likely will be a starting tight end if he decides to play in 2020 and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Posted 2/04/2020 4:27 pm UTC
Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) will visit the Seattle Seahawks in the near future.
Huddle Up: Olsen is aging and probably shouldn't be taking as many snaps, but he has shown he can be productive in smaller increments. He'll be a PPR TE2 option wherever he lands.
Posted 2/01/2020 12:45 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.
Huddle Up: Carson has rushed for at least 1,150 yards in each of the last two seasons and has 16 rushing touchdowns during that span. He likely will not do much during offseason workouts because of his hip injury but is expected to be ready for the 2020 season. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues if he is healthy.
Posted 1/31/2020 8:41 pm UTC
Carolina Panthers impending free-agent TE Greg Olsen likely will consider signing with the Washington Redskins this offseason if he decides to continue his playing career, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation because Olsen may decide to retire. The Redskins have Jordan Reed, but his future is in question because of concussions. Olsen posted decent numbers this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues if he continues his playing career.
Posted 1/30/2020 10:58 pm UTC
Updating a previous story, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen 'is said to be interested' in playing in 2020 for the right opportunity once he officially parts ways with the Panthers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Thursday, Jan. 30.
Huddle Up: Olsen's fantasy value in 2020 would entirely rely on where he plays. He doesn't have the same game-changing abilities he once had, but he could be a reliable red-zone target. He'll be a name to watch in free agency.
Posted 1/14/2020 12:58 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) said he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp. He said the broken bone in his hip will heal without surgery and should not be a long-term issue.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor Carson's rehab during the offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks. He finished fifth in the NFL with 1,230 yards and also had seven rushing touchdowns. He will be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy.
Posted 1/10/2020 10:47 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 10, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Metcalf has been playing well over the second half of the season and should see a good amount of targets this week. He can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/10/2020 12:36 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (non-injury) practiced in full Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Metcalf is coming off a monster game against the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round. He'll need to be in lineups for the game Sunday, Jan. 12, against the Green Bay Packers.
Posted 1/09/2020 12:10 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Metcalf is coming off an outstanding performance in the Wild Card playoff game and has caught a touchdown in three of the last four games. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues this week.
Posted 1/06/2020 5:53 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch logged only 18 snaps in the NFC Wild Card game, but head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN on Monday, Jan. 6, that he believes Lynch is ready to handle more of a workload now that he has two games under his belt.
Huddle Up: It stands to reason, as Seattle didn't bring back an icon like Lynch to continue using him in a relief/specialty role. With that said, Travis Homer played 44 of the 64 offensive snaps Sunday, so it would seem as though Carroll is hinting the Seahawks will have a split backfield for however long they remain in the postseason.
