Cooper Helfet will compete for a role with the Seahawks as a reserve tight end, but he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. He had 13 catches for 130 yards in 2015, and he is not worth drafting in most formats even if Jimmy Graham (knee) is slow to come back from his injury.
The Seahawks announced the following players as inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers: quarterback B.J. Daniels, safety Jeron Johnson, cornerback Marcus Burley, tight end Keavon Milton, tackle Justin Britt, defensive lineman David King and tight end Cooper Helfet. Johnson was the only inactive player listed on Seattle's injury report heading into the game. Seattle is an 8-point favorite.
As expected, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will play on Saturday against the Panthers. Lynch was listed as probable due to a back injury, but was never expected to miss the game. He's been battling the injury throughout the whole season, but has not missed a game. The team will also have Michael Bennett, Demarcus Dobbs, Cooper Helfet, Jermaine Kearse, Byron Maxwell and Tharold Simon for the game. All six players were also listed as probable going into the contest.
The Seahawks have listed Jeron Johnson (elbow) out and tight end Tony Moeaki (calf) as questionable for Sunday's playoff opener against Carolina. The following players on Seattle's injury report were labeled as probable: Michael Bennett (not injury related), Demarcus Dobbs (ankle), Cooper Helfet (ribs), Jermaine Kearse (hamstring), Marshawn Lynch (back), Byron Maxwell (illness), Tharold Simon (shoulder) and Max Unger (knee, ankle).
The Seahawks have listed DE Demarcus Dobbs, TE Cooper Helfet, WR Jermaine Kearse, OL Keavon Milton, CB Tharold Simon and OL Max Unger as inactive Week 17 against the Rams. Both Dobbs and Kearse had been ruled out prior to the contest. Helfet, Simon and Unger all came into the game listed as questionable. Helfet is dealing with a rib injury. Simon has a shoulder issue. Unger is battling knee and ankle injuries. Milton is a healthy scratch.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as probable for Week 17 against the Rams. Lynch was listed on the injury report with a back injury, but has been able to battle through the issue all season. He did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to put in a full practice on Friday. The team should also have Tony Moeaki and Russell Okung. Both players were listed as probable on the final injury report. Cooper Helfet, Chris Matthews, Tharold Simon and Max Unger are listed as questionable, and will be game-time decisions. Both Demarcus Dobbs and Jermaine Kearse have already been ruled out for the contest.
