Shark Bites

The Seahawks on Friday agreed to terms with WR Jaron Brown, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Brown spent 5 years with the Cardinals, topping out at 31 receptions. He’ll join a Seattle offense that just lost WR Paul Richardson in free agency after trading away WR Jermaine Kearse last summer. Brown could settle in as the Seahawks’ 3rd option behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. It’s not a fantasy-rich opportunity, though, for a limited talent

The Seahawks on Friday reached a 3-year, $14 million deal with former Panthers TE Ed Dickson. We’re not sure yet on the guaranteed portion of that, but it’s hard to bet on the 30-year-old getting all of that. Dickson has been a decent player but also a backup for most of his career. The new situation could push him into the top half of TE2 territory, but we’re not getting fired up about him. The losses of TE Jimmy Graham and WR Paul Richardson could leave more and better targets for WR Tyler Lockett. We’ll see who else Seattle adds this offseason, though

The Seahawks have named Brian Schottenheimer their OC. Marty's son has 9 seasons of NFL experience as an OC -- 6 with the Jets and 3 with the Rams. Only 2 of those teams ranked better than 20th in total offense. Schottenheimer has favored the run as a play-caller, with 6 of his 9 squads ranking higher in rush attempts than pass attempts. We were hoping for a more creative hire for Russell Wilson and Co.

The Seahawks have fired OC Darrell Bevell. He spent the past 7 seasons in that post, leading Seattle to top 15 finishes in total offense in each of the past 4. His play-calling has been questionable lately, though, often waiting until too late in games to really unleash QB Russell Wilson. We'll see who the 'Hawks tab as Bevell's replacement. The offensive line remains a bigger issue than the play-calling.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Wagner has been dealing with the issue for weeks but returned to 100% playing time for last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. We'd bet on his playing time being just fine -- barring some re-injury.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) is questionable for Sunday's visit to the Cowboys. McDougald sat out Wednesday and Thursday practices before working out in full Friday. That progression leads us to believe he'll play. We'll confirm his status Sunday afternoon.

The forecast for today's Rams-Seahawks game calls for a 50% chance of rain with winds of 10-15 mph. Gusts could get up to 30 mph, according to meteorologist Kevin Roth. That's not quite enough for us to adjust our projections for this game, but you can use the weather as a tiebreaker.

Seahawks OLB K.J. Wright (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) will be a game-time decision. Wagner didn't practice all week and will be a risky play even if he's active. The potential absence of both every-down LBs certainly helps the fantasy outlook for Rams RB Todd Gurley.

Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) put in a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He's good to go for this weekend's game against the Rams. Davis has carried 31 times for 130 yards (4.2 YPC) and caught 5 balls for 36 more in his last 2 outings.

Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. His injury is believed to be minor, and he's seemingly on track to play this weekend. Davis is in the RB2 mix against a Rams defense allowing 4.7 yards per carry to RBs.

The Seahawks apparently aren't counting on MLB Bobby Wagner or OLB K.J. Wright being ready for Sunday's clash with the Rams. HC Pete Carroll said Monday that Wagner -- who aggravated an hamstring injury -- to be a game-time decision at best, according to Pro Football Talk. Wright reportedly had a "good day" Monday following his Sunday concussion, lending optimism that he might be able to clear the protocol in time for Week 15. We'll keep an eye on both key IDP contributors this week. In the meantime, make sure you have alternate options in place. Wagner, in particular, sounds like he'll be risky even if active for the game.

Seahawks RB Mike Davis left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars after taking a shot to the ribs. According to the Seattle Times, though, "indications were it was not overly serious." Before leaving, Davis enjoyed another successful outing. He carried 15 times for 66 yards against a run defense that has gotten a lot better since acquiring DT Marcell Dareus from the Bills mid-season. “I thought he looked great,’’ HC Pete Carroll said. “I thought he ran like crazy. This is the best rushing defense in the NFL. We had 100 yards at halftime. Mike was ripping, and he did a nice job with these guys and that means the guys up front did a nice job too." Seattle heads home to face the Rams in Week 15. As long as Davis' ribs are OK, he'll likely land in RB2 territory in our weekly rankings.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a hamstring injury. He had previously dealt with the same issue but has yet to miss a game for it this season. OLB K.J. Wright also left the game with a concussion. He'll obviously need to pass through the league protocol before returning to the field. We'll see about the status for each starter-level IDP as we get into Week 15.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas (heel) and MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) are active for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Use both guys as you normally would in your IDP lineups.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas (heel) and MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Thomas returned to a full practice Friday after sitting out Thursday. Wagner also put in a full Friday workout after missing the previous 2 days. Both appear likely to play. Wagner played through his issue last week.

Seahawks RB Mike Davis (groin) isn’t listed on the final Week 13 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We’ll see what Seattle’s backfield looks like on Sunday night, but it’s a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups vs. the Eagles’ 2nd-ranked RB defense.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor will miss the rest of the season because of the neck stinger he suffered in Week 10 at Arizona. "Beyond that, it's up to him," HC Pete Carroll said Monday during his weekly radio show on 710 ESPN Seattle. That means Bradley McDougald will continue to start next to FS Earl Thomas. McDougald posted 5 and 8 tackles the past 2 weeks in Chancellor's place. He's a DB3-level option in fantasy going forward. Carroll also said DE Cliff Avril will have "disc-related" surgery for the neck injury he suffered back on Oct. 1. We'll see what 2018 holds for both veterans, but dynasty owners shouldn't feel the need to cling to either.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) is active for today's game against the 49ers, as expected. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

2:11pm EST 11/26/17

Seahawks RB Mike Davis (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. RBs Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKissic are up for Seattle. It’s unclear how carries will be divvied, but McKissic will handle the pass-catching work. It makes him an intriguing flier in DFS and deeper PPR leagues.
