Seattle SS Kam Chancellor (tailbone) was limited in practice on Thursday.
This is an improvement for Chancellor, as the Seattle defensive back missed practice on Wednesday. Chancellor injured his tailbone at Baltimore in Week 14 and has yet to play since that game. The odds of Chancellor returning on Sunday are improving, but still in question as Seattle prepares to face Arizona on the road. The Seahawks D/ST is a back-end top-12 fantasy option in Week 17 due to the rough matchup. Thu, Dec 31, 2015 10:58:00 PM

The Seattle defense has allowed one offensive touchdown in the last three weeks.

Seattle has allowed just 26 total points in those three games while allowing only 51.0 rushing yards to opposing teams. Week 16 looks promising for this group again, as the Seahawks will host the St. Louis Rams and quarterback Case Keenum. The Seahawks D/ST is an elite fantasy play this week.

The Seattle defense has allowed 44.0 rushing yards per game over the last four weeks.

The Seahawks are second among NFL defenses in stuffing the run this season but have been particularly dominant over the last month. Week 15 brings the Cleveland Browns to Seattle, who have the NFL's 30th-ranked rushing attack. The Seahawks D/ST is an elite fantasy play this week.

The Seattle defense will face Matt Schaub, Johnny Manziel, and Nick Foles over the next three weeks.

The schedule sets up beautifully for the Seahawks D/ST during the fantasy playoffs. The Week 15 and 16 matchups with Cleveland and St. Louis come at home, where the Seattle defense will be the top-ranked fantasy option. Seattle is heating up after a Week 13 win at Minnesota where they gave up just 125 total yards and zero offensive points to the Vikings. The Seahawks D/ST is a top play this week at Baltimore.

The Seattle Seahawks will welcome the return of CB Jeremy Lane (knee) on Sunday, who was injured in last February's Super Bowl.

Lane's presence will help the Seattle secondary and push struggling CB Cary Williams down the depth chart. "He's going to bring that extra level of enthusiasm and effort. He's a guy that we've relied upon around here for a lot of years to just kind of bring that extra grit, and that's what he has," said Seattle DC Kris Richard. Seattle will need the secondary help when they face Pittsburgh and QB Ben Roethlisberger this week, who has thrown for 713 yards over his last two games. The Seahawks D/ST is a back-end top-10 unit this week at home.

The Seattle defense will look to rebound from a rough Week 10 performance that saw the group allow 39 points at home to Arizona.

The performance was weak as a whole, but the Seahawks did record three sacks, three turnovers, and a defensive score for fantasy owners. Week 11 brings a much easier opponent for Seattle, as San Francisco will visit CenturyLink Field on Sunday. Seattle held the 49ers to just three points in their Week 7 meeting and will be a top fantasy play this week.

The Seattle Seahawks will host the NFL's second-highest scoring offense in Week 10 when they play the Arizona Cardinals.

The Arizona offense drops an impressive 32.9 points per game to go along with an average of 417.4 total yards per game. With wet weather expected in Seattle on Sunday night, this game will likely be lower scoring than normal for Arizona and the Seattle defense has allowed just 37 total points in three 2015 home games. Despite the difficult matchup, the Seahawks D/ST should be viewed as a top-10 fantasy option in Week 10.

The Seattle Seahawks are on bye in Week 9, but will enjoy three-straight home games starting in Week 10.

The schedule lightens up a bit for Seattle following the bye and the run of home games is enough reason to hold the Seahawks D/ST through the off week. This group will be back as a top-10 fantasy option at home against Arizona in Week 10.
Thu, Nov 5, 2015 01:25:00 AM

The Seattle defense travels to Dallas in Week 8 to face the Cowboys and quarterback Matt Cassel.

The Seahawks D/ST will be a top Week 8 option as they face Cassel, who threw three interceptions in his 2015 debut last week. Seattle will be looking to repeat their overwhelming defensive performance from Week 7 when they allowed just a field goal at San Francisco. Start this group with confidence.
Thu, Oct 29, 2015 01:33:00 AM

The Seattle defense will face the scuffling offense of the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night.

This NFC West battle will pit the 30th-ranked 49ers offense against the fourth-ranked Seattle defense. The recent fourth quarter struggles of the Seattle defense have been concerning, but the 49ers offense doesn't have the fire power to threaten this group of playmakers. Consider the Seattle D/ST a top-10 fantasy option on Thursday.
Thu, Oct 22, 2015 05:10:00 AM

The Seattle defense returns home to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.

Seattle has allowed ten total points in two home games this season and has been historically stingy at Century Link Field. The Seahawks D/ST has allowed just 201 total yards per game in those two contests, and will look to continue the trend against Cam Newton and the Panthers. Fantasy owners can safely rely on the Seattle D/ST as a top-five option in Week 6.
Sat, Oct 17, 2015 01:27:00 AM

The Seattle D/ST will have its hands full in Week 5 as they travel to Cincinnati to face the surging Bengals offense.

The Bengals have yet to score less than 24 points in a single game and are second in the NFL, averaging 422 total yards of offense per game. While the Cincinnati offense is clicking, the Seahawks are one of three NFL teams without an interception on the 2015 season. This is a top-notch defense coming off two outstanding performances, but they won't be a top-five group this week due to the tough road matchup.
Thu, Oct 8, 2015 04:00:00 AM

The Seattle defense has another solid home matchup as they will face the Detroit Lions on Monday at CenturyLink Field.

Detroit owns the NFL's worst rushing attack, running for just 45 yards per game with a per-carry average of just 2.6 yards. If the Lions' run game woes continue, Detroit will be forced to let Matthew Stafford throw against Seattle's second-ranked pass defense, which is a recipe for disaster. Start the Seattle D/ST with extreme confidence this week.

The Seattle Seahawks will face Chicago backup Jimmy Clausen on Sunday in their 2015 home opener.

This Week 3 matchup already looked like a slam dunk for Seattle and the injury to Bears quarterback Jay Cutler only strengthens Seattle's grip on the number one spot among Week 3 fantasy defenses. Clausen was just 14-23 passing with one interception in Week 2 after Cutler's injury and will face a Seattle defense that is extremely tough at home. Start the Seattle D/ST with extreme confidence this week.

The Seattle Seahawks and SS Kam Chancellor have not been in contact since September 8, according to Pro Football Talk.

The lack of activity from Chancellor's agent is concerning and likely indicates that the bruising Seattle safety won't be in uniform anytime soon. The Seattle secondary could use Chancellor's services on Sunday night when they travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Even without Chancellor, the Seattle D/ST is still a top-ten fantasy defense this week, as plenty of playmaking ability can still be found in Seattle's defensive huddle.
