The Seahawks have placed WR Sidney Rice (concussion) on IR.  He's suffered 2 concussions over the past 3 weeks and was likely told by doctors to shut it down for the year.  Rice's tantalizing talent was on display a few times this season, but he was held back by QB play and durability problems.  He finishes his first year in Seattle with 32 catches, 484 yards, and 2 TDs in 9 games.  The Seahawks will move forward with Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu as their 2 outside receivers.  Neither guy is likely to be a fantasy factor down the stretch.  Slot WR Doug Baldwin figures to lead the way in targets.

Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (concussion) is not expected to play against the Eagles on Thursday night.  The short week "basically rules him out," HC Pete Carroll confirmed.  Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu will start outside, but slot receiver Doug Baldwin is a good bet to lead the team in targets.  He's the only viable fantasy option here.

Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 2.  Seattle is hoping to get him back next week.  In the meantime, Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu will start out wide against the Steelers this Sunday.  Neither guy is a recommended fantasy option in the brutal matchup.

According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, the Seahawks have signed WR Sidney Rice to a 5-year, $41 million deal.  Frankly, we're shocked by the news.  Rice is getting paid handsomely, but why he would want to go catch passes from some combination of Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst is beyond us.  The good news is that he's familiar with OC Darrell Bevell's offense from their time together in Minnesota.  There won't be any learning curve for Rice, but his fantasy value still takes a massive hit with the move to Seattle.  Meanwhile, Mike Williams will slide back into the #2 role for the 'Hawks.  He's now just a bench guy in fantasy leagues.  In Minnesota, WR Percy Harvin becomes the clear-cut #1 WR.  He figures to be a target machine.  Greg Camarillo, Bernard Berrian (if he's not released), and Devin Aromashodu will battle for the #2 receiver job, although the Vikings figure to be in the market for a guy like Braylon Edwards or Malcom Floyd now.

The Seahawks have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson.  He'll be reunited with OC Darrell Bevell, who worked with T-Jax in Minnesota.  Assuming the Seahawks are out of the Kevin Kolb Sweepstakes,this sets up an absolutely thrilling training camp battle between Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst.  Buckle up, folks, it's gonna be a good one!  All kidding aside, our money is on Jackson coming out on top.  He's familiar with Bevell's offense and just brings more to the table than Whitehurst.  That being said, the Seahawks QB position doesn't figure to provide any fantasy value this season.  Seattle's pass-catchers -- namely WR Mike Williams -- could also be in for a long year.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll has been pessimistic about QB Matt Hasselbeck's (hip) chances of playing against the Rams this Sunday night.  But Hasselbeck told Carroll that he'll be ready for the must-win game.  Hass isn't expected to practice at all this week, but he could get the nod over QB Charlie Whitehurst if he has a good warmup prior to the game.  Neither QB is a fantasy option, but WR Mike Williams would be much better off with Hasselbeck under center.

Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 9.  He must have failed his baseline tests.  QB Charlie Whitehurst draws the start in Hasselbeck's place in a brutal matchup against the Giants.  WR Mike Williams becomes a weak WR3 play.

According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the Seahawks have released WR T.J Houshmandzadeh. The team unsurprisingly couldn’t find a trade partner for the rapidly declining veteran, so they cut bait with him altogether. The move paves the way for Mike Williams to enter the starting lineup, although we wouldn’t rule out a trade for Vincent Jackson. The Vikings figure to give Housh a strong look given Sidney Rice’s absence for roughly half the season.

Seahawks beat writer Danny O'Neil believes WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh will either by cut or traded before Week 1.  "It's a thorny situation, and a resolution that sees Houshmandzadeh playing for the Seahawks this season is becoming increasingly unlikely," O'Neil writes.  Housh is more likely to be cut than traded, but we're not convinced either will happen.  If they get rid of him, a weak WR corps will get even weaker.  That being said, it's clear that Housh isn't a part of Seattle's plan this season.  Avoid him in all leagues.  WRs Mike Williams and Deon Butler are worth late-round flier picks.
