Seattle Seahawks Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll said earlier in the day that he expected Carson back for this weekend's game against the Rams, but we wouldn't consider that a lock. The missed practice is especially notable after Carson got in 3 limited practices last week. We'll get another update on Thursday.

The league has suspended Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks indefinitely because of the insider-trading case against him. We'll see how long that winds up lasting, but it means you can go ahead and drop him in IDP leagues. Unfortunately, LB K.J. Wright's knee still doesn't seem likely to be ready for Week 5. With just 1 more game between that and the Week 7 bye, we're likely looking at Week 8 for the earliest Wright availability.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll expects RB Chris Carson (hip) to return for Sunday's game against the Rams. Carroll is always optimistic about his injured players, but Carson was a surprising Week 4 inactive after putting 3 limited practices. We'll monitor his status this week. It'll be interesting to see how Seattle divvies backfield work after RB Mike Davis ripped off 101 yards and 2 scores in yesterday's win over the Cardinals.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly tore his patellar tendon in Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is done for the year, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dissly flashed some surprising big-play ability in his abbreviated rookie season and is worth stashing in dynasty leagues. His absence leaves Nick Vannett as Seattle's top TE.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a knee injury. That leaves Nick Vannett as Seattle's top TE. We'll look for an update on Dissly's situation.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for today's game game against the Cardinals. That leaves rookie Rashaad Penny as Seattle’s likely lead back — and a RB3 or flex in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he's in danger of missing this one. We'll let you know if that changes. For now, keep Carson penciled into fantasy lineups as a volume-based RB2.

Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He entered the day questionable but should be ready for his expected role. We'll see exactly what that means after he played 82% of the snaps last week in his 1st game with the team. Kendricks is a low-level IDP option at best.

Seahawks LB K.J. Wright will miss his 3rd straight game in Week 3 following knee surgery. Replacement Mychal Kendricks is questionable with an ankle issue. He popped onto the injury report after limited practices Thursday and Friday. We'll see about Kendricks' status Sunday. MLB Bobby Wagner's return to health makes him the Seattle LB to use.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner said he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Wagner missed Monday night's loss in Chicago with a groin injury despite playing every defensive snap in Week 1. We'll obviously watch to confirm that he'll be good to go, but IDP owners should expect to have the stud LB back in fantasy football lineups for Week 3.

The Seahawks have ruled MLB Bobby Wagner out for Monday night's game at Chicago. He missed practice all week with a groin injury. Weak-side LB K.J. Wright (ankle) will also miss his 2nd straight game. That leaves a potential tackle bonanza for rookie LB Shaquem Griffin. It also creates an attractive rushing setup for Bears RB Jordan Howard.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner and OLB K.J. Wright did not practice Friday because of injuries. Wright missed Week 1 following a preseason knee procedure. Wagner has a groin issue, despite playing every snap in the Week 1 loss to the Broncos. We'll see about their status following Saturday's practice, ahead of the Monday night game in Chicago.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hand) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He'll play in Sunday's opener against the Broncos but will be behind at least Chris Carson in the pecking order. RB C.J. Prosise also figures to be in the mix. Penny shouldn’t be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hand) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to play in this weekend's opener against the Broncos but will be firmly behind RB Chris Carson in the pecking order. Penny isn't a Week 1 fantasy option but should be rostered in all leagues.

The Jets have waived K Taylor Bertolet, according to multiple reports. That leaves Jason Myers as the team's kicker, barring some further roster moves at the position. Myers appeared in just 6 games with the Jaguars last year after spending 2 seasons as their kicker. He finished each of those seasons 15th or lower in fantasy scoring.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll says LB K.J. Wright will probably be out at least "a couple weeks," according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. Carroll called that "the most optimistic we could be." That timeline would put Wright on the sideline past the regular-season opener. We'll see as the game draws closer, but IDP owners should expect Wright to miss at least 1 game and quite possibly another. Rookie Shaquem Griffin figures to start as long as Wright's out.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny got the cast removed from his injured finger on Wednesday, HC Pete Carroll said. "We'll see," Carroll replied when asked if Penny would play in Seattle's preseason finale on Thursday night. We'd be surprised to see the rookie out there, but he does appear on track to be available for Week 1. Penny won't be a fantasy option for that one but is still capable of earning a significant role in this backfield throughout the season. He's gone in the 7th round of 12-team PPR drafts over the past week.

The Seahawks and WR Tyler Lockett have agreed to a 3-year, $31.8 million extension with $20 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The new deal lands Lockett inside the top 25 highest-paid WRs in the league. It's a significant investment -- and confirmation that Lockett is set to play a big role in Seattle's passing game this season and beyond. He's an excellent target at his 13th-round ADP.

Seahawks OLB K.J. Wright came away from Friday's game against the Vikings with a knee issue that required arthroscopic surgery. According to multiple reports, HC Pete Carroll said he doesn't know whether Wright will be ready for the regular-season opener. Losing Wright for any time would be just the latest ding for a defense that will look much different than the unit we've gotten used to. It would also, however, likely allow rookie Shaquem Griffin to start in Wright's place. Griffin sits behind Wright on the team's "unofficial" depth chart.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (finger) has returned to limited practice and was in pads on Tuesday, according to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta. HC Pete Carroll said the rookie has a shot to be ready for the final preseason game. It sounds like Penny is on track to play in the regular-season opener, but he'll begin the year behind RB Chris Carson. Since news broke of Penny's finger injury, he's gone in the late 6th round of 12-team drafts.
