Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Rings up six sacks in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa posted 24 tackles, six sacks, three pass breakups and two forced fumbles over 13 regular-season games in the 2020 season.

Mayowa was an immediate boost to the Seahawks' pass rush, as he finished third on the team with six sacks and led the team with 14 quarterback hits. Despite missing three games, Mayowa logged a career-high 571 snaps on defense. He'll turn 30 years old in training camp next season, and it remains to be seen if he'll be re-signed. The Seahawks could also lose Carlos Dunlap in free agency, so they may need to keep Mayowa around if they're not comfortable with Rasheem Green, L.J. Collier and Alton Robinson taking on larger roles.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa recorded three tackles (two solo), two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.

Mayowa broke a three-game sack drought to tack on two sacks in the season finale. The 29-year-old defensive end finished the 2020 season with six total sacks, good for third on the team. Mayowa will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Healthy for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Mayowa will return after a three-week absence. He posted a career-best seven sacks for the Raiders last season but has just two sacks through six games played with Seattle.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Will miss another contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Mayowa will watch from the sidelines for a third straight week, as he failed to practice all week and can't seem to shake the ankle injury. The Seahawks' trade acquisition of Carlos Dunlap helps cover for Mayowa's absence, and both L.J. Collier and Rasheem Green should see extra work until Mayowa returns.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Unavailable against Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Mayowa will miss a second straight game as he works back from a high-ankle sprain, according to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle. The veteran is currently tied with three other players for a team high in sacks with just two, and his absence should open up pass-rushing opportunities for Carlos Dunlap, whom the Seahawks recently acquired via trade from the Bengals.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Mayowa sat out the first two practices of the week and received the questionable tag, but he won't be suiting up Sunday. Alton Robinson figures to have an increased role in his absence.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Carries questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (ankle) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Mayowa missed the first two practices of the week, but he could still suit up Sunday. The Seahawks should have ample reinforcements if the veteran defensive end sits out, however, as Rasheem Green (neck) is expected to be activated from IR and rookie Alton Robinson has proved to be a viable option thus far.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (groin) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Mayowa came into the weekend with a questionable tag after not practicing Wednesday and Thursday, however, he's progressed well enough to play. Now healthy, the Idaho product is expected to handle his usual starting role at defensive end.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Questionable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (groin) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

It's unclear what capacity Mayowa practiced Friday, but it's encouraging that he hasn't been ruled out after being listed as DNP on Wednesday and Thursday. The 29-year-old DE has three solo tackles and a sack through the first two games, and if he suits up, he'll be tasked with containing Dak Prescott, who ran for three touchdowns in Week 2.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Takes down QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa recorded a sack and a pass breakup in Sunday's 38-25 win over the Falcons.

Mayowa showcased his pass-rushing ability in a limited role with the Raiders last year, but now he has a three-down gig, playing 90 percent of the team's defensive snaps Sunday. The veteran defensive end came through with a sack, although his low tackle count is concerning for IDP purposes.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Ready for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, and he's expected to start at defensive end in Sunday's game against the Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The 29-year-old posted a career-high seven sacks last year with the Raiders despite averaging just 21 defensive snaps per game. With a starting role on tap now, he has a solid opportunity to repeat that number while improving on the mere 15 tackles he registered in 2019.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Battling injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Sunday that Mayowa has been "banged up'' recently, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Mayowa's injury remains undisclosed, but there's not yet reason to worry that his availability for Week 1 is in danger. The 29-year-old has impressed while primarily working with the first-team defense during training camp, so he could be in line to handle a starting role if he's able to get healthy without missing much time.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Impressing at training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pete Carroll has been impressed with Mayowa at training camp, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. "He's been a real, real nice surprise," Carroll said. "He's really a pass rusher, you can see it in his mode of play, his get off at the line of scrimmage."

Mayowa served in a pass-rushing role with the Raiders last year, finishing second on the team with seven sacks while averaging 21.1 snaps per game. Carroll signaled his excitement about Mayowa's pass-rushing abilities, but the 29-year-old defensive end also worked with the first-team base defense, signaling a potential three-down role in 2020.

Seahawks' Benson Mayowa: Heading to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa agreed to a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Mayowa joined the Raiders on a one-year deal for 2019 and had 15 tackles (10 solo), seven sacks and three forced fumbles in 15 games. The 28-year-old worked in a rotational role in Oakland, having played over 50 percent of defensive snaps in only one contest. Mayowa should provide a boost to the Seahawks' pass rush, which ranked tied for 29th in the league last season with 28 total sacks.

Raiders' Benson Mayowa: Second on team with seven sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa recorded 15 tackles, seven sacks and three forced fumbles over 15 games in 2019.

Mayowa signed a one-year deal with the Raiders -- his third team in as many years -- over the offseason. The draft additions of Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby didn't afford Mayowa a start all season, and he averaged just 21.1 defensive snaps per game. However, he was explosive in a pass-rushing role, finishing second on the team in sacks. The 28-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Raiders' Benson Mayowa: Sets new career high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa registered three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's 26-24 win over the Chargers.

Mayowa is loving his second gig in Oakland -- he spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons with the team -- as he now has a career-high seven sacks through eight games. The 28-year-old is still a flaky IDP play with just 13 tackles in that span.

Raiders' Benson Mayowa: Makes most of limited snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa notched a sack in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Texans.

Mayowa only played 28 of 81 offensive snaps (34 percent), coming in tied for third among Raiders' defensive ends but with 24 fewer than Clelin Ferrell, who ranked second. Mayowa is used to the limited role, however, as he leads the team with 5.5 sacks over six games.

Raiders' Benson Mayowa: Opportunistic in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa recorded a sack in Oakland's 24-21 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Mayowa sacked Chase Daniel on an important third down in the second quarter. It was a big play that forced the Bears to punt from deep in their own territory. Despite making a positive impact in Sunday's win, Mayowa remains a situational pass rusher in the context of Oakland's defense and has only eight tackles to this point in the season. His value in IDP formats remains extremely low.

Raiders' Benson Mayowa: Surprise inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Mayowa was a limited participant due to a knee injury Thursday but practiced Friday with no designation, so this news comes is a surprise. The Idaho product has 3.5 of the team's five sacks this season, suggesting his absence comes as even more of a surprise. With Mayowa sidelined, look for rookie Maxx Crosby and Josh Mauro to possibly see an increase in snaps.

Raiders' Benson Mayowa: Sack streak continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayowa recorded three tackles (one solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 18 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Two weeks into the season, Mayowa finds himself second in the league in sacks with 3.5. What's even more impressive is the fact the defensive end is getting to the quarterback in his limited amount of reps, as he only played in 24 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. However, if he keeps up this level of play, expect his workload to quickly start to rise.
