The Jets have ruled S Bradley McDougald out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. That leaves rookie Ashtyn Davis starting in his place, next to Marcus Maye. We'd bet on the Chiefs testing the rookie in the deep passing game -- which should be in their game plan no matter who's starting at safety. We'll see whether the 3rd-round pick can use this opportunity to work ahead of McDougald on a clearly rebuilding Jets team.
The Seahawks on Saturday acquired S Jamal Adams from the Jets. Seattle sent 1st-round picks in each of the next 2 drafts, a 3rd-round pick in 2021 and S Bradley McDougald for Adams and a 4th-rounder in 2022. That's a pretty shocking package for a safety, one of football's most fungible positions according to league salary averages. Adams, of course, ranks among the top players at the position. And he should continue to star in Seattle. Playing behind a stronger LB corps figures to ding his tackle upside, though. And the Seahawks aren't likely to have him rush the passer anywhere near as much as the Jets did last season. Adams garnered 101 pass-rushing chances in just 14 games, 2nd most among all safeties. Baltimore's Chuck Clark (106) was the only other safety to top 74 in that category. Seattle's entire safety group totaled 31 pass rushes. So don't expect Adams to come anywhere close to last season's 6 sacks. On the other side, S Bradley McDougald gains upside with the opportunity to take over Adams' spot. McDougald tallied top-20 fantasy finishes with the Bucs in 2016 and the Seahawks in 2018. He certainly carries that potential into 2020. We'll watch to make sure he wins the SS job with his new team. As for the team defenses, we're not adjusting the numbers on either unit for this trade.
Seahawks S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) and DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Diggs' continued absence plus S Tedric Thompson landing on IR likely means starting posts for Marquise Blair and Bradley McDougald for the upside matchup with the Bucs. McDougald returned from injury last week but played sparingly. Blair looks like the better IDP bet between the 2.
The Seahawks have ruled out DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Jefferson played through a questionable tag last week but stayed on the field for less than one-third of the defensive snaps. DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) is questionable. He missed last week before putting in limited practices all this week. S Quandre Diggs (hamstring), S Bradley McDougald (back) and CB Tre Flowers (neck) are also questionable. Diggs just arrived via trade and faces an uncertain role. McDougald missed last week's game and Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. Flowers took part in limited practices all week.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (back) and DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the Ravens. DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) is active after hitting the day questionable.
Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle), S Bradley McDougald (back) and DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. McDougald missed practice all week and shouldn't be in your IDP plans. He's gotten off to a disappointing fantasy start anyway after a solid 2018. Jefferson showed up on the injury report Thursday and finished the week with a pair of limited practices. Ansah returned to a limited workout Friday after missing the 1st 2 days. We'll check the status for all 3 on Sunday afternoon.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald put in a full practice Thursday and didn't appear on the week's final injury report. That comes after he entered each of the final 2 games questionable. McDougald played 100% of the snaps in each of those games, though, and always seemed on track for full duty against the Cowboys. He'll see a fair amount of Dallas TE Blake Jarwin in coverage.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. It's not surprising, given that McDougald played 100% of the snaps through a "questionable" tag last week. The knee situation, however, makes him a prime rest candidate if Seattle jumps out to a sizable lead against Arizona, though, which seems quite possible. It's also worth noting that the Seahawks are merely playing for the difference between the 5th and 6th seed in the NFC.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. McDougald had an odd practice week, missing Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a full Friday workout. But he played through a "questionable" tag last week and didn't miss a snap. Week 17, of course, adds a wrinkle. Seattle hasn't locked in its seed yet but is merely playing for 5th or 6th in the NFC. So do the Seahawks get McDougald a little rest before a playoff opener that will be on the road either way? You'll find him in the Week 17 IDP rankings, but with some risk still baked into the projection.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and DT Jarran Reed (groin) are active for tonight's game against the Chiefs.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and DT Jarran Reed (groin) are questionable for tonight's game against the Chiefs. Each guy missed practice all week and looks risky even if active. Try to go another direction with your IDP lineup today if you can.
Seahawks DT Jarran Reed (oblique) and S Bradley McDougald (knee) are active for today's game against the 49ers. Both are fine to use as normal in IDP lineups.
Seahawks DT Jarran Reed (oblique) and S Bradley McDougald (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Reed returned to a full practice Friday, though, after missing Thursday's workout. McDougald put in limited workouts the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday. We'll check both early-afternoon Sunday, but we expect both to play. If you plan to wait for McDougald, make sure you have insurance available from the Seahawks, 49ers, Patriots, Steelers, Eagles, Rams, Saints or Panthers. LB K.J. Wright (knee) remains out, despite putting in limited practices the past 2 days.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are active for today's game against the Rams. McDougald played through the issue last week but left the game early. He remains a risky IDP option. Wright has been playing through questionable tags since returning from his August knee surgery and is fine for IDP usage.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Both guys entered Week 9 questionable as well. McDougald left the game early and then missed Wednesday and Thursday practices. He returned for a limited workout Friday but makes for a high-risk IDP option in a negative matchup for DB scoring. Wright saw normal playing time in Week 9. He missed Thursday's practice between limited workouts Wednesday and Friday. We'll check the status on both Sunday afternoon.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald left Sunday's loss to the Chargers midway through because of the knee issues that rendered him questionable for the game. HC Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times afterward that the knee "just tightened up again and he couldn't finish." McDougald returned for 1 fourth-quarter snap when fellow starting safety Tedric Thompson briefly left the game. We'll see about McDougald's status heading into Week 10's visit to the Rams.
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chargers. Each entered the day questionable but looks OK for normal IDP usage
Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and OLB K.J. Wright (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, and neither's situation looks particularly encouraging. McDougald missed practiced Wednesday, returned to a limited workout Thursday but then sat out again Friday. Wright sat Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday workout. We'll check their statuses Sunday afternoon. If your deciding between either and an early-game option, though, go with the earlier.
Seahawks S Kam Chancellor announced Sunday that his neck injury is not allowing him to return to the field. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the safety has yet to formally retire. But Chancellor said in a lengthy Twitter post that it's "time for the next chapter." He has been out since last November with the neck injury. Seattle is sure to miss Chancellor but does already have Bradley McDougald, who started the final 9 games of 2017. If you're a DS Insider, then you might have already noticed that we had McDougald projected to start next to Earl Thomas this season (anticipating this scenario). McDougald looks like a big-time sleeper for IDP drafts this season.
