11-5, 2nd NFC West

Seattle continues to go through a lot of roster changes, both on the offensive and defensive side. The draft was mainly a focus on adding defensive depth pieces, but the big splash was drafting DK Metcalf out of Ole Miss. They needed wideout help, and he certainly could give that to them. The defensive roster isn't as strong as prior seasons, but they still have a few playmakers that can get after the quarterback. Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny are going to be looking to split some work as both will be the premier backs of this team with little to follow. The Seahawks wouldn't surprise anyone with a struggling year, but Russell Wilson seems to always find a way.

Who Will Be The Lead Back?

Chris Carson led the way last season with over 1,200 all-purpose yards and nine touchdowns. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry and grabbed the starting job. Heading into this year there were talks of Rashad Penny gaining some ground on him, but this looks more like a 60/40 split coming with Carson leading the way. There have already been clear talks about a 1-2 punch in Seattle, as Penny will work the remaining portion of the workload. Seattle has also been known to throw to their running backs, which is a plus for both of them. Mike Davis saw 42 targets last season and CJ Prosise is not going to be much of a factor. As for fantasy the heavy run game approach should be able to create some standalone value for both names, but for one to be a true difference maker, and injury would need to occur. The hype is fairly high on these guys coming into the season, but there is still a lackluster offensive line that could deter them just a bit.

Will The Defense Continue To Slip?

Seattle was still in the top half in terms of points per game allowed, but this wasn't a consistent group. There were some games where they looked lost against good offenses, and the names that have slipped away are certainly a reason why. Bobby Wagner is the true stud on this team, and KJ Wright is another strong linebacker. They drafted LJ Collier in hopes that he can be a strong pass-rusher. The secondary isn't as notable as prior seasons, but still could compete with above average numbers. The Seahawks benefit from the home field in Seattle, so going to Washington is still an edge that this defense has. 2019 should be another up and down year for this defensive side, and while they focused mostly on the defensive side for the draft picks, outside of Collier none are expected to see too many snaps in their rookie seasons. Don't be surprised if you see this group tune up against worse offenses and struggle against offenses like Los Angeles.
