Seattle Seahawks Fantasy Football Projections 2022
Updated: September 4, 2022
Our 2022 Fantasy Football Projections will be viewable by both position and team.
Below you will find our 2022 fantasy football projections for the Seattle Seahawks.
Geno Smith: With Russell Wilson now in Denver, it will be Geno Smith that opens the season as the starter against Wilson and the Broncos in Week 1. That said, it's highly likely that both Smith and Drew Lock make starts throughout the season. In two seasons with the Seahawks, Smith has completed 69-of-100 pass attempts for 735 yards (7.35 Y/A), five touchdowns and one interception.
|Kenneth Walker III||156.3||687.7||4.85||12||87.4||0.5||115.61|
Rashaad Penny: Penny was a surprise first-round pick in 2018. Partly due to his durability issues, the former San Diego State Aztec has only 280 rush attempts over four seasons. Despite the limited workload, Penny has been productive and efficient with 1,580 rushing yards (5.6 YPC) and 11 touchdowns on those 280 carries. Fantasy managers got a glimpse of how productive a healthy Penny can be down the stretch last season. Over the final five weeks of 2021, Penny posted a 92/671/6 (7.3 YPC) rushing line and led all running backs in fantasy points (half-PPR) per game (21.54). In addition, Penny has eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark in six of seven career games with at least 12 carries.
Kenneth Walker III: Walker has enormous upside ... but probably not until 2023. The former Spartan (and Demon Deacon) has been used sparingly in college as a receiver, but he's arguably the best pure rusher in the 2022 draft class given his powerful compact frame, contact balance and ability to break tackles. Walker would be catapulted into heavy workloads if Penny is unable to stay healthy.
D.K. Metcalf: The obvious concern with Metcalf (and the passing game overall) is that Russell Wilson is now in Denver. Still only 24 years old, the physically-imposing wideout enters his fourth season with three consecutive 900-yard campaigns. While his yards per reception (12.9) and yards per target (7.5) were both career lows, he set a career high with 12 touchdowns and has now scored double-digit touchdowns in back-to-back seasons.
Tyler Lockett: Including his rushing yardage, Lockett has exceeded the 1,000-yard mark and scored at least eight touchdowns in four consecutive seasons. Given the team's run-first philosophy, there has been some up-and-down weekly output from Lockett despite his full-season consistency even with Russell Wilson under center. Add in the QB downgrade(s) with Geno Smith (and Drew Lock), it's likely that we see more week-to-week volatility from Lockett.
Noah Fant: Fant's 2021 numbers (68/670/4) were nearly identical to his 2020 production (62/673/3). While Drew Lock moves to Seattle with him, Fant will be no better than third in line for targets behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
