Boye Mafe Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Seahawks Edge Uchenna Nwosu needs season-ending surgery after tearing a pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That will leave Seattle without its lead edge player. Boye Mafe and Darrell Taylor finished Sunday's game as the top two. Mafe played a season-high 79% of the snaps and notched a sack for the fourth straight game. Taylor tallied his first 1.5 sacks of the season against the Cardinals. His 59% snap share marked an uptick vs. the week before but not a season high in either share or total snaps. Mafe -- a second-round pick in 2022 -- is the much better IDP bet between them the rest of the way. We'll see what else changes up front for the Seahawks. Nwosu remains signed through 2026, with dead-cap penalties that should keep him with the team at least through 2025.

Seattle grabbed EDGE Boye Mafe with the 40th overall pick, in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Mafe finished his 4-year Minnesota career with 7 sacks among 10 tackles for loss as a senior. He tested as a higher-upside athlete at the Combine, delivering a 97th-percentile speed score at 6'4 and 261 pounds. Landing in Seattle gives him a good shot at immediate playing time.
