Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 23, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Metcalf has caught at least five passes in four of the last five games and was productive with Geno Smith last week. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Head coach Pete Carroll sounded optimistic about Collins' status for Week 7, but fantasy players will know more when the inactive list is posted. Collins is a risky option because the Seahawks play on Monday Night Football but can be a starting option if he is active. Players that have Collins may want Rashaad Penny or Travis Homer on the roster in case Collins is ruled out.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) will have the pin removed from his injured middle finger next week, and there's a chance he could return from the Reserve/Injured list immediately when he's eligible in Week 10.
Huddle Up: That would be the best-case scenario for the Seahawks and Wilson's fantasy GMs as he would miss the minimum three games with the team's Week 9 bye week thrown in for good measure.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) was cleared to practice Friday, Oct. 22, and has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list. The Seahawks have 21 days to determine if they will activate him or keep him on injured reserve.
Huddle Up: It seems like Penny is close to playing and could see a significant role in Week 7 if Alex Collins is not available to play. Fantasy players may consider adding him if he is available because he could be at least a flex option in leagues.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Metcalf has been on the injury report for several weeks and has not missed a game, so he should be in uniform against the New Orleans Saints. He can be a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Collins appears to be in danger of missing the Week 7 game, but fantasy players should know more after practice Saturday, Oct. 23. Players that have Collins on their roster may want to consider adding Rashaad Penny or Travis Homer as a backup plan in case Collins sits out.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Metcalf saw his three-game touchdown streak snapped last week but has posted at least 50 yards in every game this season. He will see plenty of targets against the New Orleans Saints and can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Collins has taken over the starting job for the time being, but fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if he will play in Week 7. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he is active.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is ready to return from the Reserve/Injured list. 'I talked to Rashaad last week, I think I told you guys, in looking forward to this week coming up, that he needed to have a great week last week, which he did,' coach Pete Carroll told reporters Monday afternoon. 'He's had a number of weeks in the last three weeks that have been really good for him. He is raring to go. There won't be any restrictions on him unless the workload builds up on him. I'm hoping that's not going to be a factor because of the way he's prepared.'
Huddle Up: With all the injuries at the position, he could receive a full load of work upon return. With Geno Smith under center, that could equate to a high-end RB2 share.

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins (hip, glute) 'took a couple of big hits' in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and head coach Pete Carroll suggested Monday, Oct. 18, that he 'may' be able to play in Week 7 versus the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The hip and glute issues are likely what kept Collins on the sidelines in overtime Sunday night in the eventual loss to the Steelers. Carroll also noted that Rashaad Penny (calf) would come off injured reserve and return to full practice this week. Given the team's love for Penny throughout his numerous injury issues, it would come as no surprise if he is immediately installed as the lead back if Collins cannot go. Unfortunately, the Saints are not a great matchup for running backs, making Penny a dicey RB3 at best even if starts.

Seattle Seahawks TE Gerald Everett hauled in two of his three targets for 40 yards in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Everett was reinstated from the COVID-19 list on Monday, so this game marked his first game action since Week 3. The highlight of his day was a 41-yard grab with just over four minutes left in the third quarter in which he broke two or three tackles before falling about three yards shy of the end zone. Everett appears to still be splitting time with Will Dissly in an offense quarterbacked by Geno Smith right now, so he's nothing more than a desperation TE2 - at least until Russell Wilson returns from IR.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught only two of his seven targets for 35 yards in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: If not for his leaping 21-yard grab in overtime, it could have been a disastrous showing for his fantasy managers. As it is, he has failed to top 57 yards in four straight outings and held scoreless in each one. This kind of performance should be considered the norm for him for as long as Russell Wilson is sidelined, which makes him a hit-or-miss WR3 option at best. Fantasy managers should consider sitting him in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf hauled in six of his seven targets for 58 yards in Week 6 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks made virtually no attempt to go downfield against the Steelers, so Metcalf was fighting an uphill battle to have one of his prodigious days at the office. His most memorable play was near the end of regulation when Seattle needed a field goal to tie and he did not seem to show much urgency in getting out of bounds before getting the ball punched out of his grasp. The absence of Russell Wilson - who cannot return until at least Week 9 - will make Metcalf more of a WR2, including Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith finished 23-of-32 for 209 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He lost a yard on his only carry and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Smith also took five sacks. The 31-year-old was asked to be nothing more than a game manager in this one, as more than a third of his passing yardage came on the final drive of regulation and in overtime. This showing figures to be a good preview of what he will likely do in Week 7 in what figures to be a difficult matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Smith should only start in two-quarterback or superflex leagues for as long as he is filling in for the injured Russell Wilson.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Carson has been sidelined for a few weeks and will miss at least three more weeks because of the neck injury. Alex Collins should receive most of the work at running back for the Seahawks while Carson is sidelined and can be a flex option.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Wilson will miss at least three weeks after undergoing surgery on his injured finger. Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback for the next few weeks but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Metcalf will be working with a new starting quarterback this week but should continue to be a main part of the passing game for the Seahawks. He can be a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 14.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Carson may need to practice Friday, Oct. 15, if he wants a chance to play in the Week 6 game. Carson is a No. 2 running back when healthy, but fantasy players will need other options in case he misses another game.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Carson did not play in the last game and probably will be at least a game-time decision this week. Fantasy players should monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he will be active for the game. He would be a No. 2 running back in most leagues if he is active.

Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Carson will be able to play in the Week 6 game. He is usually a No. 2 fantasy running back when healthy, but players should have other options available in case Carson sits again.

Several doctors believe that Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) can fully recover from a fractured right middle finger in four weeks, according to multiple sources. If all goes well, Wilson could return to action in Week 10's game versus the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: It had previously been believed that Wilson would need to miss at least six weeks of playing time. Geno Smith will serve as Seattle's No. 1 quarterback during Wilson's absence but he should only be viewed as a viable starting option in two-quarterback fantasy formats. WRs Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf will see a dip in fantasy value due to the QB change but both players still merit consideration as starting options in leagues.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) will miss at least four weeks because of a ruptured tendon in his finger and could miss as many as six to eight weeks because of the injury, according to sources. He is expected to undergo surgery on his finger.
Huddle Up: Wilson will be sidelined until at least the middle of the season, so fantasy players will need to look for other options. Geno Smith will take over the starting job for now and would only be an option in two-quarterback leagues. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf will see their fantasy value drop with the quarterback change, but both are still starting options in leagues.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) did not play in Week 5 because he was 'too uncomfortable to play last night' due to an 'old issue' that flares up from time to time, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Per Carroll, Carson's return is 'to be determined.'
Huddle Up: Carol also noted during his Friday presser that Rashaad Penny could return in a week and that the team was happy with the play of DeeJay Dallas in Week 5. It sounds as though fantasy managers should prepare for Carson to miss at least one more week. Alex Collins filled in well for Carson against the Los Angeles Rams and would be a reasonable RB2 option if he must start again in Week 6 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Seattle Seahawks TE Gerald Everett was cleared for return from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Oct. 7, and is expected to practice returns to practice Monday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: It's looking unlikely he will have Russell Wilson (finger) throwing him the ball, however. Everett should be considered a middling TE2 option in fantasy with some decent upside for the foreseeable future, including Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (finger) had X-rays that were negative on his finger, but he'll have an MRI Friday, Oct. 8, and seek a consultation with Dr. Steven Shin of Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles.
Huddle Up: We'll have more answers after the MRI today, but there's probably little chance that Wilson will at least be a little compromised if he's able to play.
