Seattle Seahawks WR David Moore has made a huge leap this offseason in his knowledge of the position and in his ability to play multiple spots, according to head coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, June 13.
Huddle Up: Moore caught just 26 of 53 targets last season but turned those into 445 yards and five touchdowns. He projects behind Tyler Lockett and rookie D.K. Metcalf on the depth chart, but he's worth a late-round pick as a WR5 as the Seahawks begin life without Doug Baldwin.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny admitted that he became frustrated by the injuries he dealt with as a rookie, but he said he has 'grown up' and better understands how to be a pro on the field and off the field in terms of taking care of his body.
Huddle Up: Penny's rookie season was a disappointment overall, but he began to show flashes of his potential at the end of the season. Chris Carson's presence will keep Penny for being a lead back, but he can still be a flex candidate as the No. 2 option in Seattle's run-heavy offense.
Posted 6/07/2019 6:06 pm UTC
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has reportedly dropped 15 pounds and is being mentored by Hall of Famer and fellow San Diego State alum Marshall Faulk.
Huddle Up: After a slow start to his rookie season, Penny generally flashed more often than not. With that said, it won't hurt him that he lost some weight after appearing a bit heavy early and struggling with injuries throughout 2018. Chris Carson will be the clear lead back entering the season, but there's going to be enough volume in Seattle's running game for Penny to approach - if not exceed - 150 touches if he earns them. He's well worth flex consideration with the upside for much more behind the injury-prone Carson.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has been working out of the slot in three-receiver sets during spring practices.
Huddle Up: Lockett was a dangerous weapon down the field last year, and working out of the slot could put the ball in his hands more often and create even more big-play opportunities. For now, consider him a high-risk, high-reward WR3.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister is reportedly off to a strong start and has caught the eye of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who referred to his new pupil as a 'terrific acquisition.' 'The speed element is awesome. Really good route-runner. A lot like Tyler (Lockett) in terms of the instincts, just the ability to get open. He has a great feel for coverages, man to zone,' Schottenheimer said.
Huddle Up: Hollister flashed at times in New England, so it was surprising he wasn't worth more to the Patriots, who traded him right after the draft to the Seahawks for a seventh-round pick. Seattle also has an unsettled situation at tight end, as Will Dissly is recovering from injury, while Ed Dickson and Nick Vannett have yet to distinguish themselves. Hollister could eventually work his way into the TE2 conversation for fantasy purposes, but he'll need a strong summer at the very least before that happens.

Updating a previous report, the Seattle Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson agreed on a four-year contract worth $140 million early Tuesday, April 16, a source said. He surpasses Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers as the highest-paid player in the NFL.
Huddle Up: The midnight PDT deadline came and went, but apparently the two sides continued to pound out a deal. It was a soft, arbitrary deadline. With or without the deal, the multi-talented Wilson is a must-start fantasy option heading into the 2019 season.
Posted 4/15/2019 5:04 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will report for the first day of the offseason program on Monday, April 15. He was hoping to have a new contract in place beforehand, but he plans to report with or without a deal.
Huddle Up: It appears that this contract situation might drag on into the postseason unless the sides suddenly announce something on Monday. While his contract status is uncertain, what is certain is that he will be a must-start fantasy option yet again in 2019.
Posted 4/10/2019 1:04 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson wants a new contract before April 15. If he doesn't get one, it would be assumed the Seahawks would franchise tag him for at least one year, which would be worth roughly $30.34 million in 2020. If they did it again in 2021 and 2022, the compensation would be about $36.4 million and $52.43 million, respectively. This was enough to make former NFL head coach Jack Del Rio, who appeared as a guest recently on the NFL Network, to suggest trading Wilson is a distinct possibility. '(D)on't be surprised if before it's all said and done when we line up for the season next year if Russell Wilson isn't quarterbacking somewhere else and the Seahawks haven't gone and gotten a quarterback they think (is) the future,' Del Rio said.
Huddle Up: The thought of Wilson being traded is hard to swallow, but the cap hits in 2021 and 2022 would make it hard for any general manager to build a team, so the pressure to get something done only figures to increase as time goes by. At the moment, fantasy owners should be able to count on Wilson doing his usual thing, which is usually producing top-five numbers while sporting a stellar touchdown-to-interception ratio.
Posted 4/06/2019 9:04 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson gave Seattle until Monday, April 15, to reach a contract extension, but there has been 'very little progress' in those negotiations, according to a source. It remains a possibility that Wilson will be franchise tagged next offseason if the waiting game continues. Realistically, Wilson may want to be the highest paid player in the NFL (at least $34-35 million) or receive the highest guaranteed signing bonus (around $100 million).
Huddle Up: Wilson deserves to be paid with how consistently successful he's played so far in his career, albeit with a less-than-ideal supporting cast. Deal or no deal, Wilson is in the mid-range QB1 discussion heading into a new season.
Posted 4/04/2019 12:04 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson plans to participate in the offseason workouts even though he wants a contract extension before the start of the workouts, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It appears like Wilson will not hold out even if he does not receive a contract extension in the next few weeks. He has been one of the better fantasy quarterbacks over the last few seasons and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2019.
Posted 4/02/2019 8:04 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has made Monday, April 15, the deadline by which the Seahawks must complete negotiations on a new deal, according to a source. That day marks the beginning of Seattle's offseason program. Both sides reportedly started negotiating said new deal recently in hopes of achieving an agreement by the deadline. Wilson has one year left on his current four-year, $87.6 million contract.
Huddle Up: Wilson deserves a new deal as one of the best and most consistent quarterbacks in the NFL. He's a perennial MVP candidate and QB1 in the fantasy realm. His fantasy value may not be as high as it has been in previous years, but he remains comfortably in QB1 territory.
Posted 4/01/2019 1:04 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson needs to be used 'as much as possible' in 2019, according to OT Duane Brown. 'At times, I think we ran the ball maybe a little bit too much, and that's kind of hard to say as a lineman,' Brown said.
Huddle Up: Although Wilson's 3,448 passing yards in 2018 were his fewest since his second season, he did throw a career-high 35 touchdowns while logging a career-best pass rating. Even if Seattle sticks with a run-heavy approach, Wilson has shown he can still provide QB1 numbers.
Posted 3/17/2019 4:03 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson told late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon on Friday, March 15, that there's 'great potential' for Wilson to eventually become the highest-paid player in NFL history. Meanwhile, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has said this offseason that negotiations are 'ongoing' with Wilson, whose contract expires after the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Wilson threw for a career-high 35 TD passes last season on only 427 attempts -- his lowest single-season total since his second pro season in 2013. Meanwhile, Wilson rushed for 376 yards -- the second-lowest single-season total of his career -- while failing to rush for a TD for the first time in seven seasons. Expect some regression to the mean in both categories in 2019, and that still adds up to another QB1 campaign for Wilson.
Posted 3/13/2019 5:03 pm UTC
New York Jets impending free-agent PK Jason Myers agreed to a four-year deal worth $15-16 million with the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Myers was one of the most consistent kickers in the league last year and one of the few bright spots for the Jets. He fills a need on a good offense and can be drafted as a PK1.
Posted 3/01/2019 4:03 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is expected to attend spring training with the New York Yankees for only a day or two, but it won't be as long as last season's six-day stint, a Seahawks beat reporter said Friday, March 1.
Huddle Up: Wilson finished as a top-12 fantasy QB for the seventh time in seven seasons in 2018 but had a strange statistical year throwing a career-high 35 TD passes while failing to rush for one for the first time as a pro and posting the third-lowest passing yardage total (3,448) of his career. Average it out, though, and he remains a bona fide QB1 option in drafts.
Posted 3/01/2019 1:03 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson and RB Rashaad Penny could form a 'one-two punch' in the backfield in 2019, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: After finishing fifth in the NFL in rushing last year, Carson figures to have the first chance to lead the backfield, but Penny's role should only grow. Carson could still have RB2 potential, but grabbing Penny as a handcuff would be a wise move.
Posted 3/01/2019 1:03 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will be given the chance to push for more playing time in 2019, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Penny battled injuries throughout his rookie season, but he showed some burst when he was on the field, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. A committee between Penny and Chris Carson is likely on tap in 2019, but Penny has the better long-term upside for keeper leagues.
Posted 2/21/2019 4:02 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was rumored Wednesday, Feb. 20, as possible option for the New York Giants due to his wife's preference to live in the Big Apple. But one Giants beat writer has broken down why the Wilson-Giants rumors are a real long shot to become reality, including Seattle's hefty return asking price in a trade and Wilson's franchise-QB pricetag compared with the relatively low cost of drafting a quarterback in the first round.
Huddle Up: Wilson was the one of the few pillars the Seahawks decided to keep during their roster purge of the past few seasons, and now that they have a surplus of cap space to work with, look for Wilson to get a new contract soon and have the team build around him.
Posted 2/16/2019 2:02 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny will take 'control of the backfield' during spring and summer workouts, in the opinion of Dan Graziano of
Huddle Up: Once Penny was finally healthy, he actually performed well, averaging 4.9 yards per carry as a rookie. It remains to be seen if he can overtake Chris Carson, but as much as Seattle ran the ball in 2018, Penny should at least be a viable flex option next season.
Posted 2/03/2019 7:02 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not started contract extension talks with the team at this point, according to sources. Wilson is entering the final year of his contract.
Huddle Up: Wilson likely will receive an extension at some point this offseason and should be with the Seahawks for many more years. He threw for 3,448 yards and 35 touchdowns in 2018 and also added 376 rushing yards. The Seahawks have become more of a running team, but Wilson can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/10/2019 4:01 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will attend spring training with the New York Yankees for the second straight year, his MLB agent Mark Rodgers said Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Not your usual NFL offseason hobby but just a hobby nonetheless for fantasy's 10th-ranked QB, who ranked second in the league with a 8.2 touchdown-pass percentage.
Posted 1/07/2019 11:01 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will be a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Wilson saw a dip in his passing yards this season but posted a career-high 35 passing touchdowns. He will continue to be one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL next season and should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/06/2019 4:01 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught four of six targets for 120 yards in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: As has been the case all year, Lockett did his damage on big plays. He was one of the more dangerous deep threats this season, and he should be a high-risk, high-reward WR3 in 2019.
Posted 1/06/2019 3:01 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny rushed four times for 29 yards in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Thanks to Dallas shutting down Chris Carson, Penny actually led the team in rushing in the loss. Still, the rookie was one of the bigger fantasy busts this year. He should have a chance to carve out a bigger role in 2019, but with Carson impressing, a committee is probably the best-case scenario for Penny.
Posted 1/06/2019 3:01 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 13 times for 20 yards and lost a yard on two receptions in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Carson topped 1,000 yards as the headliner of Seattle's top-ranked rushing attack, but he couldn't find any room against the tough Dallas defense. Rashaad Penny will likely take on a larger role in 2019, but RB2 production isn't out of the question for Carson.
Posted 1/06/2019 3:01 am UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Russell Wilson completed 18 of his 27 passes for 233 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 14 yards and a score in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Wilson's comeback attempt came up just short. Even with Seattle shifting to a run-heavy approach this year, Wilson tossed a career-high 35 touchdowns. He will remain a QB1 candidate in 2019.
Posted 1/04/2019 5:01 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught 57 of his 70 targets from Russell Wilson in 2018. Lockett was not charged with a single drop pass and his average reception was caught 13 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. The Wilson-to-Lockett duo was also 14-of-17 on passes thrown at least 20 yards downfield, according to Sports Info Solutions.
Huddle Up: As it relates to this weekend's playoff game against the Chicago Bears, Lockett runs into the defense that allowed 23 percent of downfield passes (at least 20 yards) to be completed - lowest in the league. As it relates to his fantasy prospects for 2019, Lockett is a prime candidate for touchdown and efficiency regression. Owners should view this season as his ceiling and what can happen when everything falls into place for him, but chances are Lockett will be no better than a WR3 next season.
Posted 1/03/2019 10:01 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was upgraded to being a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: This was the plan all along after Carson sat out practice Tuesday and got in a limited session Wednesday. Although he'll be facing a quality defense in the Wild Card Round, Carson is one of the best RB1 weapons to deploy in all fantasy formats this weekend.
Posted 1/02/2019 11:01 pm UTC
Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was limited at practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: The club is just managing their workhorse tailback's reps, as Carson even sat out Tuesday's practice. He'll be one of the top RB1 options to roll with this weekend, especially given the hot streak he's on entering the playoffs. Carson compiled 447 yards on the ground to go with five touchdowns in the season's final four games.
