Seahawks TE Luke Willson (groin) is practicing in full for Week 8.

Barring a setback, Willson will be back to start Sunday's game against the Panthers. He's not on the TE2 radar.
Oct 23 - 7:45 PM

Robert Turbin (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Turbin is dealing with a minor shoulder injury. With Derrick Coleman sidelined, Turbin is expected to get the majority of his snaps at fullback this week.
Oct 22 - 7:31 PM

Luke Willson (groin) returned to Seahawks practice Wednesday.

Willson sat out Week 7, leaving tight end duties to Cooper Helfet, who caught three passes for 61 yards and a score. Willson won't be guaranteed to start in his return to the lineup with Zach Miller (ankle) still sidelined.
Oct 22 - 3:25 PM

Marshawn Lynch's agent called the report of his client "almost not getting on the team bus" to head to St. Louis after learning of Percy Harvin's trade "bogus."

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta had the original report, saying Lynch "went off" before almost not boarding the bus. Lynch ended up rushing for 53 yards on 18 carries against the Rams. But he had a 15-yard touchdown and 18-yard run called back on penalties. Lynch is locked in as a workhorse RB1 for Week 8 against the Panthers. Carolina is allowing the 3rd-most fantasy points to running backs.

Seahawks claimed TE Brett Brackett off waivers from the Titans.

TE Rashaun Allen has been waived in a corresponding roster move. Brackett will back up Cooper Helfet if Luke Willson (groin) can't go for Week 8.
Oct 21 - 6:06 PM

Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman (foot) will miss "at least" six weeks.

Coleman broke his foot in pre-game warmups ahead of Sunday's Week 7 tilt with the Rams. Look for Seattle to add a lead blocker for Marshawn Lynch. Robert Turbin was pressed into the role on Sunday. Coleman could go to I.R.
Oct 20 - 6:42 PM

Seahawks TE Cooper Helfet caught three passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in Seattle's Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

Helfet, a 25-year-old third-year UDFA out of Duke, got the start at tight end with Zach Miller and Luke Willson hurt. His 61 yards were second-most on the team Sunday, while his six targets were good for third behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. At 6'4/240, Helfet ran a 4.71 forty with a 32-inch vertical at the Blue Devils' Pro Day in 2012. He's an average athlete with zero fantasy value. Both Miller and Willson should return to the lineup shortly.

Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman broke his foot during pre-game warmups for Sunday's Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

Coleman somehow took a wrong step while warming up and suffered the fracture. The Seahawks were forced to use Robert Turbin as their fullback.
Oct 20 - 12:57 PM

Paul Richardson played on a season-high 43-of-73 snaps in Sunday's loss at St. Louis.

In terms of playing time, Richardson is the big winner of the Percy Harvin trade. The second-round rookie's previous high in snaps was 10. But in terms of targets, Richardson saw just five even though Russell Wilson attempted 36 passes. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, both playing more than 85 percent of the snaps, are far better re-draft bets.
Oct 20 - 11:05 AM

Paul Richardson caught four passes for 33 yards in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

The rookie receiver saw increased reps following Percy Harvin's departure. He was targeted five times on the day playing in three-wide sets on the outside opposite Jermaine Kearse, with Doug Baldwin in the slot. Richardson is a big-play threat, but won't come into re-draft value in Seattle's run-first offense.
Oct 19 - 5:36 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 50 yards in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Kearse was targeted seven times on the afternoon. He had a 29-yard catch-and-run as his biggest play of the day. The seven targets are encouraging, however, as he's likely to see an uptick in action with Percy Harvin out of town. Kearse is the big-play threat for the Seahawks. He's merely a WR5/6 flier.
Oct 19 - 5:27 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 53 yards on 18 carries in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Lynch could have had a much bigger day had he not had an 18-yard run and 15-yard touchdown called back due to penalties. He also lost his fullback Derrick Coleman in pre-game warmups to a foot injury. Lynch caught both of his pass-game targets for 18 yards. The Seahawks are going to continue to lean on Lynch, especially with Percy Harvin now out of the picture. He'll be a solid RB1 play next week against the Panthers' porous run defense.
Oct 19 - 5:02 PM

Doug Baldwin caught seven passes for 123 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Baldwin was targeted on a team-high 11 of Russell Wilson's 36 passes as the clear No. 1 receiver in the first game sans Percy Harvin. Wilson didn't have to feel the pressure of getting Harvin looks, instead feeding whoever was open, and that happened to be Baldwin. He had a 48-yard catch-and-run early in the game before later catching a nine-yard TD in the fourth quarter. Baldwin has some WR3/4 appeal as Wilson's favorite target, particularly in PPR leagues. He gets the Panthers next week.
Oct 19 - 4:39 PM

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-36 passes for 313 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Seahawks' 28-26, Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Wilson racked up an additional 106 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He sure didn't miss Percy Harvin, though we're sure there will be plenty of chatter on the topic this week after Seattle's loss. Frankly, the Rams got lucky and won it with their special teams by returning a punt 90 yards for a touchdown on some trickery before converting a fake punt deep in their own territory late in the fourth quarter. Wilson hooked up with his No. 1 receiver Doug Baldwin seven times for 123 yards and one score. He also found No. 3 TE Cooper Helfet for a score. Wilson will be back on the QB1 map in Carolina next week.
Oct 19 - 4:11 PM

Luke Willson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Rams.

With Zach Miller (foot) also out, the Seahawks are down to just Cooper Helfet and RaShaun Allen at tight end.
