Seahawks RB Alex Collins rushed three times for 19 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

The fifth-rounder was buried deep on the depth chart, getting run behind someone named George Farmer. It's a clear indication he's on the roster bubble. Collins has taken the rock 12 times for 37 yards (3.08 YPC) thus far this preseason. He should get an extended look in the finale.

C.J. Prosise rushed four times for 23 yards in his preseason debut Thursday night.

Although he didn't quite stuff the stat sheet, this was a big step forward for Prosise after an injury-plagued spring and beginning to camp. He worked as the Seahawks' first-team third-down back behind Christine Michael, and also mixed in on some second-and-long plays. Neither Michael nor Thomas Rawls is adept in the passing game, so Prosise could have a Week 1 role. Prosise should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and belongs on re-draft watch lists.

Tyler Lockett caught 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game.

Lockett's score was a nine-yard grab where he worked himself open in the end zone for a scrambling Russell Wilson. It was the kind of big play that's become Lockett's signature, though he still appears to be third on the depth chart behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. He was even out-snapped by Paul Richardson with the first-team offense. Lockett is one of the league's most dynamic playmakers, but the Seahawks could be reluctant to overexpose him on offense because of how dangerous he is on special teams. Lockett is going to have some big fantasy weeks, but could be too unpredictable to be a reliable WR3.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's third preseason game.

His touchdown came from eight yards out on a rainbow from Russell Wilson. A 4.4-flat speedster whose first two NFL seasons were washed out by injuries, Richardson was a second-round pick in the 2014 draft. He played more first-team snaps than Tyler Lockett in Thursday's exhibition game and looks to have secured a role in Seattle's receiver rotation. Richardson is worth stashing in deep Dynasty leagues. He is a threat to Lockett's 2016 re-draft value.
Aug 26 - 12:12 AM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 32 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Kearse out-snapped Tyler Lockett 21-10 in the first half. Lockett is undeniably on the rise, but Kearse appears to have him edged in two-receiver sets to begin the season. Seattle didn't give Kearse a three-year, $13.5 million contract for nothing. Lockett is still the preferred fantasy own, of course. Kearse's grabs this evening were his lone receptions in three preseason games.

Christine Michael rushed seven times for 58 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Thursday night.

A resurgent C-Mike now has 24 preseason carries for 157 yards, good for a 6.5 yards-per-carry average. He has both grinded out tough yards and showed big-play ability this August while earning the trust of the Seahawks' coaching staff. If you aren't taking Michael serious by now, your head is in the sand. Michael has dominated first-team snaps with Russell Wilson. Even if it isn't as the Seahawks' starter over Rawls, Michael has earned a meaningful early-season role in Seattle's post-Marshawn Lynch backfield.

Russell Wilson completed 16-of-21 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason game, rushing three times for two yards.

We'd say he's ready for the regular season. The highlight was an absurd third quarter scramble where Wilson bought time for seemingly minutes on end before finally finding Tyler Lockett in the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown. It was the kind of play that sets Wilson apart, and has his fantasy arrow still screaming upward after years of continual improvement. Wilson finishes the summer 24-of-38 for 303 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He's an elite QB1.

Doug Baldwin caught 4-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game against the Cowboys.

His six targets were easily a team-high among first-teamers. Baldwin could have had a bigger night, but Russell Wilson barely overshot him on a deep ball down the right sideline near the end zone. If Baldwin is done for the preseason, he'll end it with six catches for 52 yards on nine targets. It's incredibly difficult to see Baldwin catching 14 touchdowns like he did a year ago, but he remains the clear-cut No. 1 option in Seattle and a very solid WR2 in the early part of drafts.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Thomas Rawls (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game, but did say Rawls "will play in the season opener."

It's pretty much as expected and what has been reported the past few days. But it's good to hear it straight from the coach's mouth, even if that coach sees things through rose-colored glasses. Rawls resumed practicing without limitations three days ago. He needs to start the season strong to hold off a back-from-the-dead Christine Michael, who has looked impressive this preseason.
Aug 24 - 3:30 PM

Thomas Rawls (ankle) won't play in Thursday's preseason game.

Missing Seattle's regular season dress rehearsal is far from ideal, but also entirely expected. Rawls is still locked in as the Seahawks' primary early-down banger, but is facing serious heat from a resurgent Christine Michael. Rawls needs to be on his game from Week 1, something that will be a challenge after barely practicing this offseason.
Aug 23 - 7:45 PM

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is expected to see time in Thursday's preseason game.

The third-round rookie missed Seattle's first two exhibition games. Prosise had been ticketed for third-down duties, but has since been passed up by a resurgent Christine Michael. Prosise isn't on the re-draft radar for Week 1.
Aug 23 - 3:46 PM

Thomas Rawls (ankle) has resumed practicing without limitations, and ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia says Rawls is "on track to start the opener."

Despite Christine Michael's monster preseason, the Seattle beat writers foresee Rawls as the Week 1 lead back. "He looks really good and I think the signs are very positive that he's going to be ready in a couple weeks to play," coach Pete Carroll said Sunday. Kapadia previously projected Rawls to log 15 carries in Week 1 versus Miami, with Michael handling seven rushing attempts.

Seahawks rookie TE Nick Vannett is dealing with a high ankle sprain.

Coach Pete Carroll said Vannett has "responded well" since going down in Thursday's preseason game, but there is no timetable for his return. A third-round pick out of Ohio State, Vannett is behind Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson on the depth chart. Vannett is a low-upside commodity in Dynasty leagues.

According to ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia, "by all indications" Christine Michael "will have role on offense once the regular season starts."

Kapadia's article (linked below) has numerous quotes from teammates and coaches citing Michael's improved maturity and on-field performance. Despite poor work habits and preparation to this point, fourth-year RB Michael has averaged 4.7 yards per carry in his career. He has averaged 5.82 YPC on 17 preseason totes while showing dramatic improvement in the passing game. Michael may not be a threat to Thomas Rawls' Week 1 starting job, but beat writers and coaches anticipate C-Mike logging significant playing time.

Christine Michael rushed for 55 yards on ten carries and caught a nine-yard pass in Seattle's second preseason game.

Through two preseason contests working with Seattle's first-team offense, C-Mike has 99 yards on 17 carries (5.82 YPC). He has shown power and explosiveness on the field, and even lined up out wide for his nine-yard reception Thursday night. The Seahawks seem to have gained trust in C-Mike as a receiving asset, which is an area in which Thomas Rawls does not excel. With rookie C.J. Prosise far behind due to a hamstring injury, it's possible Michael will open the season as Seattle's primary passing-game back in addition to changing the pace behind projected starter Rawls.
