Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Thursday, May 17 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
NFL Position Groups With Fantasy Opportunity
Danny Kelly of The Ringer took a look at 10 new-look offensive units around the NFL that could produce for fans' fantasy football teams following an offseason of changes and roster turnover.
The Seahawks' pass-catching corps, which lost tight ends Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson along with wide receiver Paul Richardson this offseason, makes Kelly's list, and to help make up for those departures, the Seahawks added receivers Marcus Johnson and Jaron Brown and tight ends Ed Dickson and Will Dissly. Despite the offseason losses in Graham, Willson, and Richardson, Seattle still has Pro Bowl wide receiver Doug Baldwin among returning players and Kelly envisions him benefiting the most from the moves in terms of fantasy production:
"With Graham out of the picture, Doug Baldwin looks like the primary beneficiary for fantasy production. The two-time Pro Bowler and top-tier route runner led the Seahawks in touchdown catches the previous two seasons, and finished tied for the league lead in 2015 with 14 scores. I expect he'll take back his role as the team's top end zone target again next season. Fourth-year pro Tyler Lockett projects as the team's no. 2, and Brown has the size and speed to help the team on third downs and in the red zone."
