Seahawks signed K Sam Ficken to a reserve/future contract.

The Seahawks will be in the market for a kicker with Sebastian Janikowski headed for free agency, though Ficken probably isn't the answer. Undrafted out of Penn State, Ficken has converted just 3-of-6 field goal attempts with a long of 34 yards over four NFL appearances, all of them coming with the Rams.

Seahawks signed WR Keenan Reynolds, CB Jeremy Boykins, LB Justin Currie, S Marwin Evans, C Marcus Henry, OG Jordan Roos, WR Caleb Scott, TE Tyrone Swoopes and DB Simeon Thomas to reserve/future contracts.

A 2016 sixth-rounder, Reynolds made his first two regular season appearances for the Seahawks in 2018.

Coach Pete Carroll admitted Monday he has not spoken to impending free agent Earl Thomas (broken leg) recently.

Despite breaking his leg last Week 4, Thomas is on track to become one of the highest-paid safeties in league history when he reaches the open market. Carroll called Thomas a "great player," but was noncommittal on the Seahawks' chances of re-signing him. We fully expect Thomas to make it to free agency.

J.D. McKissic caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Wild Card loss in Dallas.

McKissic actually worked ahead of Mike Davis on third downs, which ended up being extremely detrimental for the latter in short Wild Card DFS slates. With Davis likely on his way out in free agency, McKissic figures to return as Seattle's No. 3 back behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny in 2019. His usage will be worth monitoring in the preseason as he could end up being the primary pass-catcher out of the backfield in a Davis-like role.

Ed Dickson caught 4-of-5 targets for 42 yards in the Seahawks' Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

It was Dickson's most productive performance since he initially came off the PUP list and totaled 54 yards and a score back in Week 8. From Week 9 on, he actually didn't record more than 25 yards in a single outing for the Hawks (until this one). With Nick Vannett and Will Dissly both still under contract in 2019, Dickson will undoubtedly be stuck in an unwavering timeshare that will just render all three useless for fantasy purposes. The nine-year vet turns 32 in July.
Jan 6 - 2:05 AM

Mike Davis rushed four times for 10 yards and tacked on two catches for another 22 yards in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Davis worked as Seattle's No. 2 back against the Cowboys but inevitably had his touches limited due to Dallas' sluggish volume-leeching run-first approach. He still quietly finished third on the team in receptions and proved to be a viable third-down/two-minute option for any interested suitors once he officially hits the free agent market in a few months. Seattle isn't expected to bring him back since the team invested a first-rounder in Rashaad Penny and extended scat-back J.D. McKissic last offseason.
Jan 6 - 1:58 AM

Doug Baldwin hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 32 yards in the Hawks' Wild Card loss to Dallas.

Much like how he started the season, Baldwin underwhelmed against the Cowboys as he stayed playing through nagging knee, shoulder, and hip injuries. A Best Ball favorite coming into the year, Baldwin's season was ultimately derailed from the beginning and culminated with him constantly battling ailments in an offense that preferred to lean on the run weekly. Tyler Lockett topped Baldwin across the board if only because the surging 26-year-old managed to stay healthy throughout the year. Baldwin should stay on fantasy radars as a prime bounce-back candidate and mid-round Best Ball selection.
Jan 6 - 1:47 AM

Tyler Lockett caught 4-of-6 targets for a team-high 120 yards in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Three of Lockett's four catches against Dallas unsurprisingly went for gains of 25, 40, and 53 yards. Experiencing a rollercoaster year due to offensive play-calling and injuries occurring around him, Lockett still 'arrived' for the Hawks in 2018 by posting team-highs in catches (57), receiving yards (965), and receiving touchdowns (10). The exciting and explosive 26-year-old signed a three-year, $30.7 million deal with the Hawks last offseason, ensuring he continues to grow with Russell Wilson under center. Lockett's ability to win against both man and zone coverage make him an ideal candidate to develop even further in 2019.
Jan 6 - 1:34 AM

Rashaad Penny rushed four times for 29 yards in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Like most of the year, Penny worked as the No. 3 back behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis in Seattle's Wild Card game. Although the rookie showed explosiveness in averaging 4.8 yard per carry this season, he ultimately didn't receive enough carries (91 total) to become a viable weekly option. With Mike Davis likely gone in free agency, the former first-round pick will enter the new league year as Seattle's No. 2 with the ability to leapfrog Carson for a starting role in camp. Keep him locked in as a late-round Best Ball pick this upcoming May.
Jan 6 - 1:32 AM

Chris Carson rushed 13 times for 20 yards in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Carson's sophomore campaign needs to be remembered for its breakout rather than its final outing. Initially thought to be a castoff following the selection of rookie Rashaad Penny in the first round, Carson out-performed Penny, Mike Davis, and even C.J. Prosise in the preseason in order to move up the depth chart and notch the first 1,000-yard season (including nine touchdowns) in his young career. Carson was Seattle's workhorse when healthy, even doubling-up Davis in carries (247 to 112). Given coach Pete Carroll's and OC Brian Schottenheimer's stubborn approach in running the ball incessantly, Carson likely won't come with a discount as a guaranteed 20-touch back in 2019. He'll still be a confident mid-round selection.
Jan 6 - 1:06 AM

Russell Wilson completed 18-of-27 passes for 233 yards and one touchdown in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.

Although his numbers don't jump off the page, Wilson was spectacular the few times he was allowed to throw, averaging 8.6 YPA through the air. The elephant in the room was Pete Carroll's and Brian Schottenheimer's offensive play-calling, which essentially handcuffed Wilson (despite his success) and stubbornly stayed establishing the run to the tune of 2.8 yards per tote on 21 total carries. To call Seattle's approach embarrassing is an insult to the term 'embarrassing.' If the coaching infrastructure stays in place this offseason (and we expect it to), consider Wilson a low-end QB1 entering the new league year due solely to the fact that he'll spend more time handing the ball off rather than being allowed to make downfield plays. His 3,448 passing yards from the regular season were his lowest since 2013.
Jan 5 - 11:53 PM

Seahawks LG J.R. Sweezy (foot) is active for the Wild Card Round against the Cowboys.

Sweezy missed Week 17. Inactive for the Seahawks are FB Tre Madden, CB Kalan Reed, RB Bo Scarbrough, OT Elijah Nkansah, WR Malik Turner, DE Branden Jackson and DE Rasheem Green.
Jan 5 - 6:54 PM

Updating a previous report, the Raiders, not the 49ers, are expected to hire ex-Colts GM Ryan Grigson to a front office position.

Of course they are. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday that it was the Niners that wanted Grigson, but PFT's Mike Florio reports that's flat out false, and Grigson's move to the Raiders is a "done deal." It's unclear what position Grigson will fill, but he'll work next to GM Mike Mayock.
Jan 4 - 10:29 AM

Seahawks CB Shaquill Griffin (ankle) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys.

It means Griffin will be out there against Amari Cooper and company. Griffin did not miss a game during the regular season.
Jan 3 - 4:08 PM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the 49ers are interested in ex-Colts GM Ryan Grigson for a front office position.

Grigson spent 2018 as a "senior football consultant" with the Seahawks. It is unclear if his Seattle contract is up or not, or what his role in San Francisco might be. Grigson was a disaster with the Colts, but perhaps he deserves some benefit of the doubt because of the meddlesome nature of Colts owner Jim Irsay.
