Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports that RB Marshawn Lynch is considering un-retiring. Florio adds that Lynch would be targeting Week 4 or 5 for his return. It's unclear whether the Seahawks would take Lynch back, although we'd guess they would considering their question marks at RB. It's an intriguing storyline as the 2016 season gets ready to kick off, but we wouldn't panic if you're a Thomas Rawls or Christine Michael owner just yet.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor sat out Sunday's intrasquad scrimmage with a groin issue, but the Seattle Times reports that he's expected to return to the field Tuesday. That makes it sound more like the team being cautious than Chancellor dealing with a particular injury. The groin gave Chancellor some trouble early last season, ranking among several injuries that interrupted his 2015. As long as he proves healthier through the preseason, the veteran should be on pace for at least IDP relevance. We'll keep an eye on his participation throughout August, though, given the recent injury history.

The Seahawks traded up with the Bears in Round 2 of the NFL Draft to get DT Jarran Reed from Alabama. A player many expected to go in the 1st round joins a defense that lost DT Brandon Mebane in free agency. That could mean an immediate starting role for Reed. A mere 2 sacks over his 2 seasons with the Tide likely means little IDP value for fantasy football owners.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (pelvis) is questionable for Sunday's finale at Arizona. He has trended toward being ready to play, going from not practicing Wednesday to a limited workout Thursday and full participation Friday. Chancellor still doesn't look exciting for IDP use in a negative scoring matchup even if he's active.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (pelvis) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. Seattle will have DE Michael Bennett active, however, and you can use him as you normally would in your IDP league.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (pelvis) and DE Michael Bennett (toe) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Chancellor missed practice all week and looks like a poor bet for your IDP lineup. Bennett put in a full practice Friday after limited work the previous 2 days. He seems likely to play but carries some risk with an injury that has bugged him for a while.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (pelvis) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. That doesn't significantly impact the outlook for the Seattle team D in fantasy.

The Seahawks have deemed S Kam Chancellor (tailbone) questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Chancellor missed practice all week and looks quite iffy to play. We'd seek another DB option for your IDP lineup.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor left Sunday's win over the Ravens early with a tailbone injury and did not return. We'll keep an eye on his status this week.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is probable for Thursday night's game against the 49ers after putting in a full practice Wednesday. He missed Week 6 with a pectoral injury. Go ahead and use Wagner as you normally would in your IDP lineup. LB K.J. Wright brings a lower ceiling back as his normal outside spot than he did in the middle last week.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he's "pretty hopeful" MLB Bobby Wagner will be ready to play Thursday night against the 49ers, according to the Seattle Times. Wagner missed Sunday's loss to the Panthers with a pectoral injury he suffered late in Week 5. K.J. Wright played the middle in Wagner's absence, with Kevin Pierre-Louis stepping in on the weak side. They each tallied 11+ total tackles against Carolina (with 3 solos apiece) and would be worth a look in IDP leagues against the Niners.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Panthers because of a strained pectoral muscle. The late-afternoon kickoff will make it tough for IDP owners to wait for him. If you want to try, you can roster Seahawks LB K.J. Wright as insurance. He would likely slide over to the middle if Wagner doesn't play and can fill Wagner's various responsibilities.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters Monday that MLB Bobby Wagner suffered a strained pectoral muscle in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati, according to Pro Football Talk. Carroll said he didn't know yet whether the injury would cost Wagner any time. We'll watch for an update this week heading into a Week 6 home date with Carolina.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith reports that Seahawks S Kam Chancellor will return to the team Wednesday. Seattle reportedly has made no adjustments to his contract and said it will not forgive the fines he racked up by holding out all of August and through the 1st 2 games. The 2 sides could negotiate some reduction, though. We can't expect Chancellor to be fully ready for action after nearly 2 months away from the team, but we'll see what further reports say about his condition. IDP owners should keep an eye on Chancellor for now, but don't go chasing him too hard unless you play in a deep league. He finished 2 of the past 3 seasons outside the top 40 fantasy DBs (depending on your scoring system) and 2013 around DB25. Chancellor's return can only help a Seahawks D that has done nothing special while helping the team start 0-2.

The Seahawks on Wednesday activated S Earl Thomas from the PUP after the veteran passed his physical. He had been a question mark for the preseason and start of the regular season after offseason surgery to fix a torn labrum in his left shoulder. We'd still be surprised to see Thomas much -- if at all -- in exhibition games, but the timing of his return should put him on track for the real contests. He's fine to draft as you normally would in your IDP league (where you should wait on DBs).

CB Byron Maxwell told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Sunday, "I'm going to Philly." There had been reports of a 5-year agreement worth a little more than $50 million. Maxwell ranked 45th among 108 CBs in overall Pro Football Focus grade last year. He also finished 39th in coverage, 1 spot behind Cary Williams, whom the Eagles released earlier this offseason. Maxwell did, however, rank 16th overall and 13th in coverage in 2013. A weak CB crop on the free-agent market and a shaky rookie class at the position undoubtedly helped to make him money this offseason. We'll see if the deal works out for the Eagles.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas reportedly had surgery Tuesday to repair a completely torn labrum, which he played through in the Super Bowl. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier in February that Thomas faced a 6-8 month recovery. The short end of that would put Thomas back on the field on August ... though ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported that the team expected him back in time for training camp. We'll see what Thomas' recovery timeline looks like as we get into summer. Don't be surprised if he's slow to get into action come training camp, though. We'll check the reports then to see how we need to adjust his fantasy football outlook for IDP owners.
