Seattle Seahawks WR Phillip Dorsett said Tuesday, May 12, he feels he's now in the proper system after turning down an offer from the Seahawks to re-sign with the New England Patriots a year ago. 'I feel like this is the right offense for me,' he said. 'Obviously I know (QB Russell Wilson), and he's a great quarterback. The way he plays quarterback and the way this offense is fits my skill set.'
Huddle Up: Dorsett caught 29 of 54 targets for 397 yards and a career-high five touchdowns across 14 games played last season. He'll begin the 2020 season behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf on the depth chart and will compete with David Moore and sixth-round rookie Freddie Swain for snaps and targets. He won't begin the season with fantasy relevance, but he could become a streaming candidate later in the year.
