Seattle Seahawks Fantasy Football Rundown

The world champion Seattle Seahawks aren’t always pretty on the fantasy sheet, but what do they have to offer heading into 2014?

Starters

Marshawn Lynch

Beast Mode was the centerpiece of the Seahawks offense en route to their Super Bowl victory.  In spite of the rumors that the team wishes to get into a more of a committee approach, the fact remains that Marshawn Lynch is their go-to guy when they need a first down, touchdown or anything else.

Seattle Seahawks defense

There isn’t a defense on the planet that a fantasy owner would rather have than the Seattle Seahawks.  They led the way in 2013 as one of the best in probably the past decade.  They force turnovers, they create punts and above all they put points on the board.

Reserves

Percy Harvin

Despite such a small sample size, Percy Harvin was a huge key to the Seahawks winning a championship last season.  One can imagine how their offense might do if he can actually stay healthy, never mind his special team impact as well.

Russell Wilson

Two Pro Bowl appearance pretty much tells the story of Russell Wilson.  He isn’t a traditional quarterback like Manning, Brady or Brees but he creates plays both with his arm and his feet and they often leads to points.  He is as good a reserve quarterback as people can get and even might be good enough to start in fantasy leagues.

Sleepers

Doug Baldwin

Golden Tate is out so the race to take his slot opposite Percy Harvin is on.  The Seattle Seahawks have high hopes for Doug Baldwin who was quite productive last season in limited snaps.  He could be ready to finally take that next step .

Sidney Rice

Some players just seem to have nine lives in their career and Sidney Rice is a perfect example.  Despite ongoing injury problems he keeps finding ways to get back on the field, and that is because he is productive when healthy.  It’s a big what-if, but Rice can once again be featured in the Seahawks offense if he actually stays on the field.
