Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks



Overall Outlook
The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a terrific 2013 where they won the Super Bowl in dominant fashion. On to 2014, where the Seahawks have taken a few lumps, especially in the departures of Golden Tate, Brandon Browner, Chris Clemons and Breno Giacomini. Fortunately for Seattle, there was depth there prior to the free agent period, so the Seahawks still look like a major contender, we just don't see them as elite as last year.


Offseason Moves
Key additions: E Travis Beckum, G/T Stephen Schilling, CB Phillip Adams
Key losses: WR Golden Tate, CB Brandon Browner, DE Chris Clemons, DE Red Bryant, CB Walter Thurmond, DT Clinton McDonald, T Breno Giacomini, G/T Paul McQuistan

Offensive Outlook
The Seattle offense is built on running the ball, and with Marshawn Lynch in the backfield, we don't expect that to change. However, with Percy Harvin at full health to start this season, we expect the Seahawks offense to be a bit more creative, and therefore expect Russell Wilson to creep into the top 10 of fantasy QBs this year. We see a sold performance out of the main players on this squad.

Projections - 2014
QB1 - Russell Wilson - Passing - 3300 yds / 25 tds  Rushing - 400 yds / 3 tds 
RB1 - Marshawn Lynch - Rushing - 1250 yds / 11 tds  Receiving - 30 recs / 275 yds / 2 tds
RB2 - Christine Michael - Rushing - 400 yds / 2 tds  Receiving - 10 recs / 100 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Percy Harvin - Receiving - 70 recs / 975 yds / 8 tds
WR2 - Doug Baldwin - Receiving - 60 recs / 800 yds / 5 tds
WR3 - Jermaine Kearse - Receiving - 35 recs / 500 yds / 3 tds
TE1 - Zach Miller - Receiving - 40 recs / 400 yds / 4 tds

Defensive Outlook
Gone are cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond, as well as defensive linemen Chris Clemons, Red Bryant and Clinton McDonald. These departures will have an impact on Seattle, and will likely drop them from being the clear cut DST1 they were last year.  In terms of IDP, look for both safeties and Wagner to continue putting up stellar numbers.

Projections - 2014
DE1 - Michael Bennett - 40 total Ts / 10 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 6 total TOs
DE2 - Cliff Avril - 40 total Ts / 9 sacks / 2 pass defensed / 5 total TOs
DT1 - Brandon Mebane - 50 total Ts / 2 sacks / 1 pass defensed / 2 total TOs
DT2 - Tony McDaniel - 40 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 1 total TO
OLB1 - Malcolm Smith - 80 total Ts / 1 sack / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
OLB2 - K.J. Wright -  70 total Ts / 2 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
MLB - Bobby Wagner - 155 total Ts / 3 sacks / 7 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
CB1 - Richard Sherman - 80 total Ts / 0 sacks / 16 passes defensed / 7 total TOs
CB2 - Byron Maxwell - 45 total Ts / 0 sacks / 14 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
S1 - Earl Thomas - 115 total Ts / 0 sacks / 5 passes defensed / 7 total TOs
S2 - Kam Chancellor -  110 total Ts / 0 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 6 total TOs
