Seattle Seahawks WR Marquise Goodwin (knee) practiced in full on Friday, Sept. 30, and has no designation going into Week 4.
Huddle Up: It's hard to trust any Seahawks wide receiver right now, let alone anyone not named DK Metcalf or Tyler Lockett. Goodwin should be left on waivers.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (shoulder) practiced in full on Friday, Sept. 30, and carries no designation into Week 4.
Huddle Up: With just 12 touches over two games, Walker isn't a viable starting option until we see much more.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Walker has received only seven carries in his two games this season and has posted only 48 total yards during that span. He should be kept on the bench until he is more involved in the offense.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith might get unleashed by the team moving forward, head coach Pete Carroll said on Monday, Sept. 19. "We don't need to hold him back at all. I think Geno's got his game ready to go," Carroll said. "We need to trust him and we need to maybe give him a few more opportunities and stuff."
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: After a hot start to the season, the Seahawks have scored just seven points in their last six quarters. Smith has posted back-to-back games with 80 percent or better completion rate but has failed to eclipse 200 yards in either game. This might be good news for Seattle's pass-catchers, who are suffering under a subpar quarterback, but we doubt Smith will post significant enough production to warrant starting consideration. In fact, things might get worse the more Seattle puts on his plate. Leave him on the waiver wire.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) practiced in full on Friday, Sept. 16, and carries no designation going into Week 2.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: We finally get to see the regular season debut of Seattle's 2022 second-round pick, but expectations should be tempered. The Seahawks may opt to ease Walker in after he missed the season opener, and he'll have to battle for snaps with Rashaad Penny, who played well in Week 1. Penny can be deployed as a flex option but Walker should be kept on the bench for one more week until this situation clears up.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 15.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It is not known if Walker suffered a setback or if he was receiving some time off during the week. He probably will be on a snap count if he is active for Week 2, so fantasy players may want to see how he performs before considering him for their lineups.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Huddle Up: Walker appears to have a good chance to make his NFL debut this week if he does not suffer any setbacks. He may be eased into the offense, so fantasy players may want to wait a week or two before considering him for their lineups.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) will play in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Rashaad Penny's fantasy managers can begin their sweat. While Penny looked strong and explosive in the opener, Walker was reportedly working his way into being "a bigger part of Seattle's backfield than people may realize" before his injury last month. Expect the Seahawks to take it easy on the rookie initially. With that said, his presence could make Penny little more than a middling flex option most weeks moving forward.

Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks S Jamal Adams (quadriceps) is believed to have suffered a torn quadriceps, which would end his season.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Adams was a top-five DB in IDP leagues and will be hard to replace. S Josh Jones had 7 total tackles Monday night and will be high on the waiver priority list.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 9. The Seahawks did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It seems like Walker will not be able to play in Week 1, so fantasy players can look for other options. Rashaad Penny will see a boost in value if Walker is not able to play and can be a No. 2 fantasy back in leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Walker is recovering from surgery and likely will have to practice at some point this week for a chance to play in Week 1. He is a risky option since the Seahawks play on Monday Night Football, so fantasy players may want to look at other options.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) is "highly likely" to sit in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, according to a source.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: As expected. Rashaad Penny should be expected to handle most of the early-down work in what figures to be a difficult matchup against the Broncos. Because Penny does not do much work in the passing game, he comes with a fair amount of bust potential in Week 1. Walker figures to be a thorn in his side all season long and has a realistic shot at being the better fantasy option of the two when he is fully healthy.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 6.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It is still too early to tell if Walker will be able to go in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, but a DNP following a light workout on Monday is not a great sign. Making matters worse is that Denver and Seattle play on Monday night, so Walker has the distinction of being highly questionable and probably on the lower end of a committee with Rashaad Penny in a game in which Seattle is expected to trail. Feel free to keep Walker on the fantasy benches in Week 1.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) did some running and catching during practice Monday, Sept. 5, but head coach Pete Carroll said it is too early to tell if Walker will be available for Week 1.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation during the week to see if Walker has a chance to play. He probably will see limited work if he is active for Week 1 and can be benched if better options are available.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) has made a quick recovery from hernia surgery and has already resumed practicing. He has not been ruled out for the season opener versus the Denver Broncos but it is more likely that he will make his NFL debut in Week 2's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Seattle will not play until Monday night during the first week of the season, so fantasy owners should keep him out of their starting lineups because of the high probability that he will be a game-time decision. When healthy, Walker should receive a decent number of touches and he could become a starting option later in the year.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught two passes for 35 yards, including a long gain of 18, in the preseason finale on Friday, Aug. 26.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It was good to see Lockett connect with his new quarterback, Geno Smith, and he looks more than ready for the start of the season. Lockett is a WR2, although Seattle's shoddy quarterback situation is a definite concern for his value in 2022.

Seattle Seahawks WR Dee Eskridge tallied one catch on three targets for eight yards in the preseason finale on Friday, Aug. 26.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Eskridge's quiet performance doesn't give us much confidence he's going to have a significant enough role for fantasy relevance to start the season. Making matters worse, he's behind at least Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and Noah Fant in the pass-catcher pecking order. Eskridge should still be rostered in dynasty formats, but even there he's on shaky ground.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith will get the start over Drew Lock in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: If the competition was close prior to Friday's preseason finale loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Lock lost any chance he had by throwing three interceptions. The news of Smith winning the job isn't great news by any stretch of the imagination, but he is probably more likely to help D.K. Metcalf maintain WR2 value than Lock would have been. Smith should only be on rosters in two-QB leagues.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith and QB Drew Lock will continue battling for the starting spot as head coach Pete Carroll said the team will take all the time it needs to make a decision. Carroll said Smith remains ahead but that he's "wide open" to the possibility that Lock could overtake him.

Huddle Up: Whoever wins the job won't have a lot of potential in fantasy beyond a matchup-play QB2.

Seattle Seahawks QB Drew Lock will see significant playing time in the final preseason game since he missed the last game because of COVID-19, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Huddle Up: Lock is still competing for the starting job and probably will play most of the game in hopes of impressing the coaches. Neither Lock nor Geno Smith is a great fantasy option and can be avoided in most leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) has no timetable for return after undergoing hernia surgery, head coach Pete Carroll said on Sunday, Aug. 21. "He's still pretty tender" Carroll said. "I was with him today. He's got some things to heal, to go in and do what they did. So, it's just a matter of time, but we don't have a designated sequence yet. We'll have to see how he responds."
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Carroll previously said Walker should be ready for Week 1, which makes his latest statement an ominous sign. The 2022 first-round pick has the potential to return RB2 value in his rookie season, but an extended absence will slow his momentum.

Seattle Seahawks WR Dee Eskridge (hamstring) was a full-go in practice for the first time in training camp on Sunday, Aug. 21.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: After a near-silent rookie campaign, Eskridge is already behind after having missed most of training camp, and his prospects don't look to be improving going into 2022, as he's no better than fourth in the pass-catcher pecking order behind DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Noah Fant. Making matters worse, he's set to catch passes from either Drew Lock or Geno Smith. The 2021 second-round pick should still be rostered in dynasty formats but isn't a viable option in re-draft leagues.

Seattle Seahawks QB Drew Lock (illness) returned to practice on Sunday, Aug. 21, after recovering from COVID-19.

Huddle Up: COVID-19 derailed Lock's scheduled start in preseason Week 2, but his return on Sunday puts him on track to start in the exhibition finale on Friday. Lock appears to be trailing Geno Smith for the starting job, but neither quarterback is a viable fantasy option in 2022.

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hernia) is scheduled to undergo a procedure on his hernia injury in the near future, but head coach Pete Carroll said Walker is not dealing with a sports hernia. The team hopes Walker will be ready for Week 1.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Walker will be able to practice leading up to Week 1. He is not the starter at this point but should see a good amount of touches each week when healthy. Walker could be a No. 3 or No. 4 back in fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (groin) participated in practice Tuesday, Aug. 16.

Huddle Up: It seems like Walker may miss the final two preseason game and may be uncertain for Week 1.

Huddle Up: Geno Smith was the starter for the first game, so Lock will receive his chance with the starting offense. Neither quarterback seems to have a big lead in the competition and will need the last two preseason games to impress the coaches. Neither Smith nor Lock will be a starting fantasy option.
