Shark Bites

The Seahawks have ruled S Kam Chancellor out for Monday night's game against the Falcons with a neck injury. HC Pete Carroll said that no decisions have been made about his season beyond that. S Bradley McDougald is expected to start in Chancellor's place against the Falcons.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (groin) isn't listed on the final Week 11 injury report after putting in full practices on Friday and Saturday. He'll play against the Falcons on Monday night. Lacy is averaging just 2.7 yards per carry this season and shouldn't be in fantasy lineups. His return also makes RB Thomas Rawls an even shakier play.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (groin) returned to practice on Thursday. HC Pete Carroll, always the optimist, expects Lacy to play against the Falcons on Monday night. He'd likely be in a time-share with RB Thomas Rawls behind a crappy offensive line. It's a situation to avoid in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

The Seahawks have placed RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) on IR. He was hobbled by a right ankle injury for most of the season and then hurt his left ankle in last Thursday night's game. Prosise has now appeared in just 11 of 32 games over his first 2 NFL seasons. His dynasty value has taken a significant hit. J.D. McKissic will serve as Seattle's passing-down back the rest of the way.

The Seahawks expect S Earl Thomas to return for Sunday night's game against the Falcons, HC Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle on Monday. Thomas missed the past 2 games with a hamstring injury. We'll keep an eye on his participation and status through the week to see if we can get him into IDP lineups without waiting for the Sunday night inactives.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman ruptured his right Achilles' tendon in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals and will miss the rest of the season. That damages a Seattle defense that has already showed cracks at points this season. It improves the individual matchups for WRs in the weeks to come, starting with Julio Jones in Week 11.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise re-injured his ankle again in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. He's been struggling with this ankle since late-September and handled just 3 carries tonight before exiting. Prosise isn't worth rostering outside of deep fantasy leagues.

Update: HC Pete Carroll said after the game that Prosise actually injured his other ankle.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Cardinals, as expected. He entered the day doubtful. CB Richard Sherman (Achilles') and Sheldon Richardson (oblique) are active after entering the night questionable. The Seattle team D remains a strong play against a Drew Stanton-led offense.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Cardinals. He didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today that he could be limited. Richardson also figures to see a fair amount of CB Patrick Peterson. He's a shaky WR3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is expected to play tonight but "could be limited some." Richardson was already a low-floor fantasy play, averaging just 4.9 targets per game on the season. Any reduction in snaps would only make him a riskier Week 10 fantasy start.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas (hamstring) is doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. That'll leave Bradley McDougald to fill in once again. He played 100% of the snaps in the loss to Washington, logging 5 total tackles (2 solo). The Arizona matchup carries more upside and makes McDougald a fringe IDP starting option for Week 10. Missing Thomas is certainly not good for the Seattle D but doesn't change its status as a starting fantasy unit. Elsewhere on the defense, CB Richard Sherman (Achilles') and DT Sheldon Richardson (oblique) are questionable.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. He wasn't listed on the injury report Monday but was sidelined on Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll find out Richardson's status by 7 pm ET tomorrow. He'll be a risky WR3 if active.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (groin) is out for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. RB Thomas Rawls will operate as Seattle's lead early-down back and is a volume-based RB2 option. RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is off the Week 10 injury report but can't be trusted in fantasy lineups yet.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said on 710 ESPN in Seattle on Monday that he doesn't know yet whether S Earl Thomas' hamstring will be ready for Thursday night's game at Arizona. Carroll added that they likely won't know until Thursday whether the veteran will play. If he's active, Thomas will be worth the risk in many IDP lineups, given the turnover upside with Drew Stanton under center for the Cards.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) to play against the Cardinals on Thursday night. We'll see if he can make it through the shortened practice week without a setback. Prosise lasted just 2 snaps before re-injuring that ankle last time out. He can't be trusted in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy injured his groin in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Redskins and is doubtful to return. As HC Pete Carroll promised, Lacy was operating as the clear lead back before exiting, carrying 6 times for 20 yards and catching a pass for 14 more. RB Thomas Rawls will take over the rest of the way.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Redskins. RB J.D. McKissic will continue handling pass-catching duties out of the backfield.

The Seahawks have ruled S Earl Thomas (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against Washington. That removes a high-upside DB from IDP lineups and obviously dings the Seattle team defense, but the Seahawks remain a strong option against a Washington offense that will likely miss at least of its starting O-linemen. Elsewhere on the defense, S Kam Chancellor (ankle), MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring), slot CB Jeremy Lane (thigh) and DT Sheldon Richardson (oblique) are all questionable. If all those guys sit out, then things might look a little different. We'll update Chancellor's and Wagner's statuses for IDP owners on Sunday. The others aren't IDP factors. Wagner and Chancellor each put in full practices Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Redskins after a limited week of practice. He lasted just 2 snaps before re-injuring that ankle last time out and can’t be trusted in Week 9 fantasy lineups. His return wouldn’t hurt QB Russell Wilson, though.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday that RB Eddie Lacy will lead the team's rushing efforts against Washington Sunday. "Going to see a lot of Eddie this week," he said, according to the Seattle Times. Chris Carson still leads the team in carries for the season with 49, despite hitting IR after the 4th game. “I don’t feel like we have been in a rhythm,” Carroll said. “I think I’ve held them back a little bit by spreading it around quite a bit and trying to figure that out. So as we zero in the second half [of the season], hopefully we are going to make some headway.” Of course, no one besides Carson has given the team reason to believe rhythmic production was coming. We'll see what Lacy can do this week. Volume at least makes him a fantasy option for Week 9.
