2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
If it wasn't for the monster season that Lamar Jackson delivered, there would've been a real case to be made for Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson to win his first NFL MVP award in 2019. Wilson exceeded 4,000 passing yards for the third time in his professional career while adding 31 touchdowns with only five interceptions. It was Wilson's third straight season of over 30 passing touchdowns as the Seahawks bounced back to throwing the ball over 500 times again after Wilson threw just 427 passes in 2018.

Still an "establish the run" offense under Brian Schottenheimer despite having one of the great quarterbacks of this era, the Seahawks' re-commitment to the passing game only brought them back up to 22nd in the NFL in passing plays per game. Incredible career efficiency has allowed Wilson to remain a fantasy stud despite significantly lower passing volume than most other elite fantasy QBs and that should tell us that we're likely seeing closer to the fantasy floor for Wilson rather than his ceiling.

Despite it long being an issue for the team, the Seahawks once again made no significant investments in the offensive line this offseason. In fact, the offensive line might be even worse, as they let guard D.J. Fluker and center Justin Britt walk. They did draft LSU guard Damien Lewis in the third round, but there's no guarantee that he'll even see the field in 2020. Seattle did add a field stretcher in Phillip Dorsett and a reliable veteran tight end in Greg Olsen, but they really made no hugely significant improvements to the offensive situation as a whole.

A continued deterioration of the defense and the loss of two road-grading offensive linemen could lead to Seattle actually finding themselves needing to pass the ball more often in 2020 than ever before under Wilson. That could mean a bit of a dip in efficiency if defenses know the pass is coming, but an increase in volume would almost certainly lead to a positive effect on Wilson's fantasy production.

Wilson is still considered one of the more elusive quarterbacks in the league and while he does still flash rushing ability from time to time, the days of him running for an average of more than 30 yards per game are probably in the rear view mirror. Nevertheless, he's a player who can comfortably contribute around 20 rushing yards per game, which remains an added value over most of the veteran quarterbacks.

He's one of only a few fantasy quarterbacks who have realistic QB1 overall upside and while he may not be likely to reach quite that level given the offense he's in, Wilson does offer an excellent floor along with a reasonable expectation to finish in the top five at the position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Russ unlikely too cook near as much in 2021
HC hints Seattle will return to run-heavy ways
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 11, 8:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said that in all his years in Seattle, the Seahawks almost never saw two-high safeties because of their ability to run the ball, but that it happened far too often in 2020 as the Seahawks kept looking for deep passes and explosive plays. “We needed to run the football more (down the stretch) and (have) more commitment (to it) to run them out of their fronts. The point is when you can play with two safeties off the football and deep, that means you’re playing seven-man front football … and that’s basically what’s happened,” Carroll said. “We have always run the football and made them (bring) their safeties down … You can force teams to do that. ... That’s a big emphasis in my mind of how we want to control what the game is all about.” (710 ESPN - Brandon Gustafson)

FFToday's Take: While Carroll's logic about attacking defenses using a heavy dose of two-high safeties is sound, the solution to the Seahawks' offensive struggles over the second half of the season probably isn't giving their $35 million quarterback (Russell Wilson) or the most impressive physical specimen at receiver in the game today (DK Metcalf) fewer opportunities. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde are set to hit free agency, so the Seahawks may be giving Rashaad Penny a shot to lead the backfield if nothing gets done between now and the draft.


Injury Carlos Hyde listed as Questionable with toe injury
Chris Carson off the injury report
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 4, 6:40 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Carlos Hyde led the Seahawks with 17 touches (15 carries) last week while Chris Carson got 10 (eight carries) in his first game in a month. Pete Carroll expects Carson to get the ball more than that, saying: "We ran the ball 30 times last week. [Russell Wilson] had a few of those. It’s a good number for us to shoot for for these guys and split it up with Carlos and see what happens. I don’t really care who gets the most but I would like to see Chris get the ball a little bit more than that." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Given Carrol's comments and the fact that Hyde is nursing a toe injury, it's safe to assume Carson will see the bulk of the carries in Week 13 against the Giants. The Giants are giving up the 11th most fantasy points to running backs.
