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 TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday but put in a full workout on Friday. We never heard any concern about the ankle. Graham is safe to get into Week 12 fantasy 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.

Seahawks RB Mike Davis (groin) is listed as doubtful for Week 12. He didn’t practice all week and won’t play against the 49ers on Sunday. RBs Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKissic figure to be active in Seattle’s backfield. McKissic is the most intriguing fantasy play at this point — especially against a ‘Niners defense ranked dead last in receiving yards allowed to RBs.

Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the 49ers. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday but put in a full workout on Friday. HC Pete Carroll said that Graham will be "fine." He's safe to keep in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing practice with a hamstring issue all week. But HC Pete Carroll indicated Friday that Wagner should play, according to the team website. We'll confirm his status Sunday afternoon when then late-game inactives come out, but expect to have the stud LB available.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll on Tuesday called RB Mike Davis (groin) "unlikely" to play against the 49ers this weekend. Considering the rose-colored glasses Carroll is always wearing, consider Davis out for Week 12. It's a tough break for a guy who gave Seattle's backfield a bit of a spark on Monday night. RB Thomas Rawls figures to be active again this weekend, but neither he nor Eddie Lacy can be trusted in fantasy lineups. J.D. McKissic is the closest thing to a fantasy option in the Seahawks' backfield right now.

The Seahawks started recently signed RB Mike Davis in Monday night's loss to the Falcons, even with Eddie Lacy back from his groin injury. Davis carried 6 times for 18 yards and produced a pair of big gains on screen passes but then left in the 3rd quarter with a groin strain. According to the Seattle Times, Davis "thinks he'll be OK" but will have an MRI this week. If Davis proves ready for Sunday's visit to San Francisco, there could be some deep appeal for fantasy owners. The Niners present the league's best scoring matchup for RBs.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons, apparently as a healthy scratch. Rawls didn't show up on the injury report at all this week, so RB Eddie Lacy's return from a groin injury appears to leave the team no use for Rawls. Lacy, of course, has topped 34 yards just once all season. The closest thing to an intriguing RB in Seattle right now is J.D. McKissic, who drew a season-high 9 touches in last Thursday's win at Arizona. We'll see if he can repeat that participation level and become fantasy relevant.
