Fantasy football projections are running wild this time of year. We were able to get a sneak peek of what could be to come with the Seattle Seahawks last night, as they showed they could have a roster full of sleepers.
Here’s a look at what could be to come for the Seattle Seahawks in the 2014 season…
Harvin looks to stand out
If there was one newsy note to key on from last night, it was Percy Harvin’s dominance. Harvin will be getting his first full season in Seattle in 2014, and there’s no reason to believe he won’t blow up with the play calls the Seahawks are going to be putting together.
The jet-sweep was a big one last night, proving that his electricity in space is a fantasy football weapon to be watched. He had 100 total yards last night, but he racked up an incredible number of points in many PPR leagues. If all goes as well, Harvin could exceed 1,500 total yards and 8+ touchdowns, making him a must-start – and potentially a prime trade option.
“Beastmode” shows he’s just that
Marshawn Lynch is back, folks…
Last night’s dominant performance stands on it’s own. He looked like a battering ram as usual, but he showed a very agile and quick game that some were worried he may be losing. If he showed one thing in the game against the Packers, it’s that he definitely deserves more Skittles and more starts in fantasy football. There’s no reason you should be sitting Lynch this season.
He projects to rush for a good 1,200 yards and potentially 10+ touchdowns.
Wilson not a starter
Russell Wilson is one of the best signal-callers in the game of football, but that doesn’t mean you should be starting him on a week-to-week basis.
He likely won’t be getting you more than one or two touchdowns a week, and his yardage totals will be anything but pleasing. He should end the year with a solid 3,200 yards and 25 touchdowns, but he isn’t a guy you should be relying on.
SLEEPER ALERT: Three guys to watch
TE Zach Miller – Wilson will have faith in this big target after his one-handed grab last night. He should be tucked away on a bench in all leagues as a great option for a bye-week/injury.
WR Doug Baldwin – He had three catches last night, and he’ll look to get more involved as the season goes on. Baldwin is a nice FLEX option for the weeks you might be in a jam.
K Steven Hauschka – The Seahawks might have a bit of trouble punching it in at the goal-line against some solid defenses on their schedule, leading to points upon points for Hauschka.
