Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reportedly gave DE Carlos Dunlap his assurance he isn't going anywhere else in 2021 before the latter re-signed with the Seahawks last month.
Huddle Up: The Wilson trade talk has died down considerably since reaching a bit of a fevered pitch a few weeks ago. Perhaps Wilson is happy with some of the team's recent additions or maybe the few teams that were desperate enough to pay the price of three first-round picks decided to bow out. Whatever the reason, it's hard to imagine the addition of new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron hurts his fantasy value. Wilson should remain firmly in the mid-range QB1 discussion.

Seattle Seahawks TE Gerald Everett said he has talked with QB Russell Wilson about working out with him this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks have not used the tight end much over the last few seasons, but Everett should have a solid role in the passing game. He should be at least a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett signed a four-year, $69.2 million extension Wednesday, March 31, that includes $37 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Lockett was the eighth receiver in PPR leagues last season, and now he's paid like it. He'll continue to be a mid-to-low WR1 in fantasy.

Free-agent RB Chris Carson (Seahawks) reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth up to $14.625 million to remain with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, March 19. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the deal's actual framework is a three-year pact that voids after two seasons and worth $24.625 million.
Huddle Up: Carson follows in the footsteps of Aaron Jones as top free-agent running backs in this class ultimately choosing to stay home after hitting the market. Given Seattle's recent edict that it wants to commit even more to the running game, Carson is in great shape to see all the volume he can handle over the next two years. Fantasy owners should consider him a fringe RB1 in upcoming drafts, even with his injury history and the continued threat of Rashaad Penny stealing some work.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson leads the NFL with 128 completions, 4,369 passing yards and 51 touchdowns on throws of 20-plus yards since 2017, according to Pro Football Focus Saturday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Wilson has been bandied about in trade rumors this offseason, but he'll be a top-flight fantasy commodity regardless of where he plays in 2021. If he were to leave the Seahawks, WRs Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf would become significantly less valuable.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson will not receive the franchise tag and is set to become a free agent, according to a source.
Huddle Up: As hard as it is to believe for a team that is committed to running the ball, it appears the Seahawks' cap situation is in bad enough shape that they could attempt to move forward with Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and likely a late draft pick (or an undrafted free agent). Carson is among the most physical backs in the league and should not have trouble finding a job in the first week of free agency. He should be a solid fantasy RB2 regardless of where he signs and could have RB1 upside if he finds a great landing spot.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not being 'shopped,' according to a source Thursday, March 4, but calls from other teams interested in trading for Wilson have been answered.
Huddle Up: Translation: The Seahawks have every intention of sticking with Wilson unless they're absolutely blown away by an offer. Then it would be a matter of Wilson approving the deal as well. It remains an ongoing offseason hot topic, but it's most likely Wilson and his QB1 talents remain in the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson stormed out of a meeting before a Thursday night game against the Arizona Cardinals because he felt his ideas on how to fix the offense were being rebuffed, according to a report by The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks. Wilson has attempted to add his influence to the offense and has felt shut out by coaches at times.
Huddle Up: Wilson is a midrange QB1 if he stays in Seattle, but he could have upside if he were dealt to a more potent offense.

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent RB Chris Carson averaged a career-high 4.8 yards per carry and a career-best 3.1 receptions per game in 2020.
Huddle Up: Carson missed time with an injury, but he resumed his role as Seattle's workhorse back down the stretch while expanding his involvement in the passing game. If the Seahawks bring him back in 2021, RB2 production seems like a given.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not demanded a trade, his agent Mark Rodgers told ESPN on Thursday, Feb. 25. Wilson told the Seahawks he wants to remain with the team, but if a trade were to be considered, the only teams he would consider are the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders or New Orleans Saints, according to Rodgers.
Huddle Up: One thing is clear with the continuing Wilson reports this offseason: He and the Seahawks' coaches and brass certainly have patching up to do. He's been a top-11 fantasy QB in all nine of his seasons with the Seahawks, and despite the eye-grabbing January and February headlines, it's still hard to imagine Wilson suiting up for season No. 10 anywhere other than the Pacific Northwest come September.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's $19 million salary for 2021 becomes fully guaranteed Friday, Feb. 12, after it was only guaranteed for injury previously.
Huddle Up: There are rumors swirling about Wilson on the trade market. His metrics have fallen, and the number of hits he has taken has caused questions about a decline. The position is pretty loaded in fantasy, and as strange as it sounds, he could be a low-end QB1 next year.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he hopes to receive better pass protection next season and will also work on trying to avoid hits.
Huddle Up: Wilson has been sacked at least 40 times in each of the last eight years and been sacked 95 times in the last two years. He is still one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and will be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues in 2021.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been a trade target for a few teams, but the Seahawks have no intention of trading Wilson.
Huddle Up: Wilson was one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and is a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues. He should have similar success next season and should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in drafts.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he hopes he will be able to cut down on his turnovers next season. He said he has been talking with offensive coordinator Shane Waldron about how to be more aggressive on offense.
Huddle Up: Wilson ranked in the top 10 in passing yards and touchdowns this season but also threw a season-high 13 interceptions. He will still have one of the best sets of starting receivers next season and is a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Carson should receive most of the work at running back this week against the Los Angeles Rams and can be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot, load management) was upgraded to a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Carson didn't practice Tuesday, so this is already a step in the right direction and proof the team is just being cautious. He'll be an RB1 option this week despite the difficult matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot, load management) didn't participate in practice Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Carson ran 11 times for 44 yards and added two receptions for 39 yards in Week 17. If this is truly load management, he'll be good to go as a top DFS option in the Wild Card round with the Seahawks favored over the Los Angeles Rams.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 20-of-36 passes for 181 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers, while also running for 29 yards. RB Chris Carson ended up with a team-best 44 rushing yards on 11 carries, while adding two grabs for 39 yards. RB Alex Collins had five carries for 29 yards and a score, and WR Tyler Lockett rolled up 12 receptions for a game-high 90 yards and 14 targets. WR DK Metcalf was limited to 21 yards on three receptions, with TE Will Dissly leading the tight ends with 20 receiving yards.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Carson has rushed for at least 60 yards in each of the last four games and has been involved in the passing game as well. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Carson should be ready to play in the Week 17 game, but fantasy players can check on his status in the next day or two. He can be a solid No. 2 fantasy running back this week if he plays.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Carson will need to be started if active for Week 17, as the Seahawks figure to lean on the run game to keep QB Russell Wilson protected in the regular-season finale.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett had three catches for 44 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Ever since exploding against Arizona for 200 yards and three TDs on Oct. 25, Lockett hasn't topped 70 yards receiving in a game and has managed just one touchdown total in nine outings. He long ago forfeited the right to be a WR2 and is no better than a WR3/flex for the finale.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf caught six passes (on eight targets) for 59 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Much was made of Jalen Ramsey locking down Metcalf in the first meeting between the clubs, and while it wasn't a huge day from Metcalf on Sunday he at least made some timely catches in big spots. He destroyed the 49ers earlier this year for a 12-161-2 line, though Seattle's offense was operating in a much different way back then. Still, Metcalf should be a WR1/WR2 in Week 17.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried the ball 16 times for 69 yards in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams. Carson also tallied three receptions for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: Carson's 19 touches dwarfed backfield mates Carlos Hyde and Rashaad Penny, who posted three a piece. That's a reminder that in big spots the team will look to Carson as the primary back. He could be an RB2 against San Francisco in the finale.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 27. Wilson also ran for nine yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: After accounting for three or more TDs in seven of his first eight games, Wilson has accomplished that feat just once in the last seven, and that was against the shell-shocked Jets. He also hasn't topped 300 yards passing in a game since Nov. 8. While he torched San Francisco in the earlier meeting, Wilson is no more than a fringe QB1 for the rematch.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Carson should receive a majority of the carries this week against the Los Angeles Rams and could also see a few targets in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (load management) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Carson ran for 63 yards on 15 attempts in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the Washington Football Team. He'll have a very tough Week 16 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams and will need to do more via the passing game to retain fantasy value as a low-end RB2.
