NFL Media Senior Fantasy Analyst Michael Fabiano shares which running backs fantasy owners should target after the top options are off the board
With the Seahawks final preseason game on Thursday night, the team combined Competition Wednesday and Turnover Thursday into one day, hopefully preparing themselves for later in the year when they play on Thursday night in the regular season.
Due to the shortened week, the team doubled up on a Tuesday practice of preseason week four with the themes of "Competition Wednesday" and "Turnover Thursday".
A player-by-player look at the 2015 Seattle Seahawks 75-man roster. The Seahawks must trim their roster to 53 players by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 5.
1971 - Mack Strong, a two-time Pro Bowl selection and the fullback on the Seahawks’ 35th Anniversary team, is born in Columbus, Ga. Strong would join the Seahawks in 1993 and spend his rookie season on the practice squad. From 1994-2007, he played in 201 games – second in franchise history behind Joe Nash (218); and blocked for a trio of 1,000-yard rushers – Chris Warren, Ricky Watters and Shaun Alexander.
1983 – The Seahawks win their first game under coach Chuck Knox, 17-10 over the New York Jets, as Curt Warner rushes for 128 yards on 24 carries and the team sets a club record with 57 rushing attempts. And you wonder why they called Knox’s offense Ground Chuck.
1994 – Rick Mirer passes for three touchdowns and Chris Warren runs for three touchdowns as the Seahawks beat the Raiders 38-9 in Los Angeles in posting back-to-back wins on the road to open the season for the first time since 1985.
