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.

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.

The Seahawks acquired LT Duane Brown from the Texans on Monday in exchange for CB Jeremy Lane and a pair of draft picks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Seattle will send a 2018 fifth-rounder and a 2019 second-rounder. It'll get 1 of the league's better LTs, who spent the 1st 6 games of this season holding out over displeasure with his contract. Brown obviously improves a Seahawks line that entered Week 8 ranked among the league's bottom half in Football Outsiders' adjusted line yards (rushing) and adjusted sack rate. On the other side, Houston can use the CB help, but Lane doesn't mean any change in fantasy outlook for the team D.

The Seahawks lost starting LT George Fant to an ACL tear in Friday night's preseason game. Fant hasn't proved to be a special talent, but it's a bad loss for a team that has already struggled on the O-line. It harms the fantasy outlook for all Seattle RBs. We're not changing the projections for QB Russell Wilson, but losing Fant could make life more challenging for him all year.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson followed a strict diet regimen this offseason. The result: he's down from 225 pounds to 214 and from 16% body fat to 10%. Wilson was already a good bet to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 season that saw him play through ankle and knee injuries. Cutting some weight should only help that cause. A beat-up Wilson tallied a career-low 259 rushing yards last year after averaging 607.5 over his first 4 seasons.

Wilson suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 1 of 2016. Just 2 weeks later, he sustained a left MCL sprain. Those injuries led to career-lows in the rushing department, but Wilson managed to appear in all 16 games. In fact, he’s now done that in 5 straight seasons.
