- Updated: Saturday, July 27th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Seattle Seahawks.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Russell Wilson466298.23681.428.668.6266.93682.01293.52
Not only were Wilson's pass attempts (427) a five-year low, but his rushing attempts (67) were a career low and he failed to rush for a touchdown for the first time in his career. Even so, Wilson finished the season as fantasy's QB9. Before 2018, Wilson ended the year as a top-three QB in three of four seasons and has finished as a top-12 quarterback every year of his career. Even though Wilson ranked 20th in pass attempts, only Patrick Mahomes and Andrew Luck threw more touchdowns than Wilson (35). While his career-best 8.2 TD% was more than two full percentage points above his career average (6.0 TD%), Wilson has thrown at least 34 touchdowns in three of the past four seasons.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Chris Carson2381047.27.7424.9202.90.93177.03
Dominating running back touches over first-round rookie Rashaad Penny, Carson toted the rock 247 times for 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns and added 20 catches for 163 more over 14 games. The workload disparity between Carson (267 touches, 73.96%) and Penny (94, 26.04%) should narrow, but I still expect Carson to get the larger share of the workload in one of the league's most run-heavy attacks.
Rashaad Penny156.2710.74.321.11730.69118.31
Earlier this year, coach Pete Carroll said of the Carson-Penny duo that "I don't know who's one and who's two, it doesn't matter to me." Shedding 15 pounds this offseason and given his first-round pedigree, Penny has plenty of upside in Seattle's run-first attack even if he enters the season as Carson's backup.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Tyler Lockett71.21000.46.7611.258.80.34148.52
Despite a consistent level of targets -- 66 to 71 -- in all four of his seasons, Lockett posted career highs in receptions (57), yards (965) and touchdowns (10) as he shattered previous career highs in catch rate (81.4%), yards per reception (16.9) and yards per game (60.3). While those ratios may regress closer to the mean, Lockett's target volume is all but assured to increase with Doug Baldwin's retirement.
D.K. Metcalf34513.44.682.5150.0381.1
Despite his Tom Brady-like agility numbers at the Scouting Combine, Metcalf is a size-speed freak (6-3, 228, 4.33 forty, 40.5-inch vertical) whose field-stretching abilities mesh well with Russell Wilson, one of the league's best vertical passers. In Seattle's low-volume passing attack, Metcalf's rookie season may be deemed more successful in best-ball formats than traditional season-long leagues.
David Moore37536.54.351.260.0180.41
When given the opportunity, Moore was highly effective -- 17.1 Y/R and a TD per every 5.2 receptions last year. The expected bump in volume gives Moore some upside and makes him a decent late-round sleeper to target.
Gary Jennings22.3245.31.6700034.55
Jaron Brown11.2136.61.3400021.7
John Ursua4.654.30.320007.35

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Will Dissly31.6328.63.3200052.78
Dissly had a monster first week (3/105/1), but the rookie tore his patellar tendon in Week 4. Even though he'll be ready to go for the start of the season, it's unlikely that he provides consistent fantasy-relevant production in 2019.
Nick Vannett18.4176.61.5600027.02
Ed Dickson6.876.20.5100010.68
Jacob Hollister3.743.30.260005.89
