QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Russell Wilson501.1328.23958.729.067.7777.94091.75310.45
Few teams are more commited to the run than the Seahawks, but Wilson has finished as a top-three fantasy quarterback in four of the past six seasons. One of the league's best deep passers, Wilson has thrown more than 30 touchdowns in three consecutive seasons and he's a near lock for 300-plus rushing yards and a couple more scores.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Chris Carson247.81090.36.8134.7258.51.56185.1
Carson (hip) has declared himself "100% healthy and will be ready to go for Week 1. Playing 15 games last season, Carson handled a career-high 315 touches for 1,496 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns.
Carlos Hyde64.9262.81.7810.867.50.2745.33
Coming off his first 1,000-yard rushing campaign, Hyde has signed with the Seahawks and provides depth with Penny starting the season on the PUP list.
Rashaad Penny49.6230.61.4913.1115.30.4646.29
A surprise first-round pick in 2018, Penny has been efficient with his touches -- 5.26 YPC and 9.29 Y/R -- as a change-of-pace to Chris Carson. Recovering from his torn ACL, Penny begins 2020 on the reserve/PUP list, which means he will miss a minimum of six games to start the season.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Tyler Lockett75.31012.87.347.145.80.21151.16
While the Seahawks rank near the bottom of the league in pass attempts every year, Lockett is one of the most efficient receivers in the NFL and saw a significant uptick in target share (21.3% in 2019 vs. 16.4% in 2018) with the retirement of Doug Baldwin. Despite playing through injury in the middle of the season, Lockett set career highs in targets (110), receptions (82) and yards (1,057) in 2019. The 5'10" receiver led the NFL in red-zone targets (23) in 2019.
D.K. Metcalf61.4911.87.062.4140.05135.24
A physical marvel (4.33 forty and 40.5" vertical at 6'3" and 228 pounds), Metcalf slipped to the end of Round 2 in the draft, but he made an immediate impact for the Seahawks. As a rookie, Metcalf finished with 58 catches for 900 yards (15.5 Y/R) and seven touchdowns. And the team plans to move Metcalf around "quite a bit more" in 2020.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Will Dissly32.3373.14.0400061.55
Devastating injuries prematurely ended back-to-back seasons to begin his career, but Dissly has averaged 13.5 Y/R and scored six touchdowns on only 31 receptions. The signing of Greg Olsen in free agency allows the Seahawks to be patient early with Dissly (Achilles) even though he has passed his physical.
Greg Olsen34.2381.32.9900056.07
Since his 1,000-yard three-peat (2014-'16), Olsen has missed multiple games in three consecutive seasons, but he finished with a receiving line of 52/597/2 in a mostly-healthy 14-game campaign last year. If he can stay healthy (and Dissly can't), Olsen could be stream-worthy with fringe TE1 upside in his age-35 season.
