The subject of frequent trade rumors the past two offseasons, Richardson is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract at the fifth-year option salary of approximately $8 million. With Muhammad Wilkerson already carrying a huge contract and Leonard Williams still on his rookie deal, the Jets aren't expected to work out an extension to retain Richardson beyond 2017. A trade might seem to make sense for the rebuilding franchise, but Richardson's salary and career trajectory would probably prevent the Jets from fetching anything more than a middle-round selection -- which is what the team will get as compensation if he leaves as an unrestricted free agent next offseason. He thus figures to stick around next to Williams and Wilkerson for one more year, giving the Jets a formidable defensive line amidst an otherwise barren roster. Richardson did have 62 tackles, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 15 games last season, partially making up for his career-low total of 1.5 sacks. His participation at the voluntary offseason program suggests he's fine with staying in New York for another season before hitting the open market next year.
After rushing for 93 yards in Week 2, Carson posted another strong fantasy showing with Sunday's touchdown. He played 41 of 73 offensive snaps, and appears to have the early-down role locked up with Thomas Rawls playing a single snap and Eddie Lacy on the sidelines all game. C.J. Prosise projects to remain in his passing-downs role with the potential to cut into some of Carson's playing time, but the rookie boasts tremendous upside moving forward. It's also encouraging that the Seattle offense had its best game with Carson heavily involved. A home matchup with the Colts in Week 4 sets up well for Carson, too.
Darboh's lone catch came late in the first quarter and helped set up Seattle's second field goal of the contest. Overall, Darboh was on the field for 14 of 82 offensive snaps. After trading away Jermaine Kearse, Seattle opened up space behind Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin. The battle between Paul Richardson, Tanner McEvoy and Darboh -- who trailed the group in snaps on Sunday -- will be worth watching.
If he gets healthy, Senior could be eligible for an injury settlement -- thus making him available for other teams. He could also be one of two IR players Seattle elects to activate, though that seems less likely. His inability to keep his knees healthy makes him unappealing to most franchises.
A banner day for Prosise it was not, but the offense has struggled to get Prosise involved too. He's an afterthought for early-down work and has mostly been involved in the two-minute offense.
Alexander has played just one defensive snap this season compared to 42 on special teams, so fantasy owners shouldn't be losing sleep over Alexander's absence. Expect Michael Wilhoite to continue serving as the main relief linebacker.
Despite dealing with an ankle injury and being limited in practice last week, Wright still managed to show out in Sunday's win over San Fransisco. Wright has now posted 17 tackles (12 solo) through two games this season and should be a consistent contributor in that area so long as he remains healthy.
Hill is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. He'll likely be used mainly as a special teams contributor.
McEvoy made an excellent catch on the 28-yard touchdown pass. He still faces an uphill battle to the make the team, though. Kasan Williams probably already won the last WR job, and even though rookie Amara Darboh has not caught a pass in preseason, the team likely won't cut its third-round pick. Even if McEvoy makes the team, his opportunities will be limited. But it would be fun to see what the 6-6 receiver with excellent hands could do with a steady role.
Seattle expects an MRI on Monday to confirm the injury, and McDonald will then likely be headed for injured reserve. Without McDonald, the Seahawks will lack some key depth at linebacker, which will likely result in the team signing a linebacker to their active roster as a replacement.
"I would love to retire here," Chancellor stated prior to finalizing his new deal. This is a good possibility as the veteran safety will be 33 years old at the end of his contract. Chancellor is an elite safety, logging 86 tackles, two interceptions and eight passes defended in 12 games. Expect him to continue to record similar numbers if he's able to stay healthy in 2017.
Per the report, "the early word is that (Baldwin's) injury is not serious." Prior to his exit from Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Titans, the Seahawks' top wideout had caught 10 passes (on 15 targets) for 105 yards and a TD. Next up on the team's wide receiver depth chart if Baldwin is out or limited at all in Week 4, are Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett.
After missing Week 2, Garvin will return to his starting role at outside linebacker. The 26-year-old recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Week 1, and he'll have to battle against a strong offensive line in Tennessee.
Selected at No. 94 overall in last year's draft, Vannett logged only 84 offensive snaps in nine games as a rookie while stuck behind Jimmy Graham, Luke Willson and Brandon Williams on the depth chart. Graham and Willson are still around and seemingly locked in as the top two options, but with both players in contract seasons, Vannett should at least have an opportunity to push for a significant role in 2018. Vannett is unlikely to ever serve as the team's top receiving threat at tight end, as he caught only 55 passes in 37 games at Ohio State and ran a 4.85 40-yard dash at the 2016 Combine.
Powell was previously placed on injured reserve shortly after the Colts claimed him off waivers in June.
Bennett didn't come across many tackles in Sunday's win, but he made the most of his limited opportunities with yet another sack. The star defensive end played 42 of the team's 49 defensive snaps and now has 2.5 sacks through the first two games of the season.
As expected, this means that Avril will be good to go for Sunday's matchup with Green Bay, who contained him to just two tackles and zero sacks in 2016. Michael Bennett (undisclosed) was also left off of this injury report, meaning the Packers will have to focus on shutting down both defensive ends.
Thompson is less athletic than most players the Seahawks target, but he earned a high grade from them anyway thanks to his production. Thompson played safety for a Colorado pass defense that dominated in 2016, and Thompson picked off seven passes in the process. He and Delano Hill give Seattle options at safety.
Holmes lost out on a competition for the final tight end spot. He's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Despite managing just one limited practice this week, Sherman will avoid missing the first game of his six-plus years in the league. He'll look to shut down whoever lines up across from him, whether it's Pierre Garcon or Marquise Goodwin.
The quick recovery is exactly what Battle needed in order to have a chance at the 53-man roster. Battle will be a depth option for the Chiefs' offensive front if he does make the roster.
McKissic is a versatile player whom the Seahawks can use as a receiver split wide or as a running back. His roster spot looks assured as he continues to return kickoffs and punts in place of Tyler Lockett, and C.J. Prosise's injury issues could give him a bigger opportunity. If the injury-prone Prosise misses time, the Seahawks could turn to McKissic for the third-down role, as the three other running backs on the roster are more suited for early down work.
Clark played just 35 of the team's 49 defensive snaps Sunday, but he still managed to add to his sack total for the season, with Sunday's takedown of Brian Hoyer giving him 1.5 through two games. He still does not see enough time on the field to be considered a legitimate IDP option, however.
The diagnosis of a sore ankle is much more relieving that initial suspicions suggested. Thorpe's status for next week remains in jeopardy, but it doesn't appear that this will be a long-term issue.
There had been some rumblings of Boykin losing out on the backup spot, but that wasn't made clear until after the team's decision to waive the 24-year-old. Boykin has had a troubling offseason, which may have factored into the team's decision to part ways, but credit Austin Davis for earning his keeps during the preseason. Boykin likely will draw interest from some other teams, so he could still see the field at some point this season, just not in a blue and green uniform.
It's unclear if this was a new issue or an aggravation of the knee treatment Joeckel underwent at the end of the preseason, but it doesn't seem to have been too serious anyhow. Expect the former first-round pick to be ready and available for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Moore played at a tiny Oklahoma school called East Central, but at his pro day he showed NFL-level athleticism. At 6-foot-1, 219 pounds, Moore ran the 40 in 4.43 seconds while adding a 36.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. He looks like an upside project for Seattle.
There has been no mention of when or how Griffin sustained the concussion, but he was nonetheless limited in practice Wednesday. The rookie third-round pick is apparently ready to go for Sunday's game against the 49ers, and will likely slide back into the role of nickel corner with Jeremy Lane's return.
Lockett went down on Seattle's final drive of the game, finishing with two catches for 30 yards on three targets. He could be in line for an expanded role Week 4 against Indianapolis, as Doug Baldwin suffered a groin injury of unknown severity earlier in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss.
One week ago, Lacy landed on the Seahawks' list of inactives, partly due to the return to health of Thomas Rawls. Head coach Pete Carroll has opted to have four running backs available Sunday, so Lacy will vie for reps with Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Rawls. Due to each player's individual snap count on the season, Lacy may sit fourth on the pecking order.
After two seasons with the 49ers, Davis tried earning a spot with their rival during training camp. Although he was unable to earn a spot on their 53-man roster, the 24-year-old will look to impress with the Seahwaks' practice unit.
Walsh's long was of 27 yards. His penchant for missing PATs is partly what got him released in Minnesota last year.
While it took time for the Seattle offense to begin clicking Sunday, and Wilson's final numbers likely weren't indicative of his real-world performance, it was a huge fantasy output. The 373 passing yards were a career high, so after throwing for just 356 yards and a single touchdown through the first two games of the year, it was reassuring for fantasy owners to see Wilson shine. The porous Seattle offensive line is still a concern heading into Week 4, but facing the Colts at home projects as a great matchup for Wilson's fantasy upside.
The Seahawks surrendered a 2018 fifth-round pick and took back a 2018 seventh-round pick in addition to Tobin in the deal. Tobin started at right tackle and played 22 snaps for the Eagles in Thursday's preseason game against the Bills, but could be ticketed for a backup role with the Seahawks when the regular season begins.
The 22-year-old back signed with the Seahawks in May as an undrafted free agent. Madden was eyeing a role at fullback with the club, but the team has ultimately decided to part ways with the USC product.
Trevone Boykin entered camp as the favorite for the backup quarterback job behind Russell Wilson, but Davis outplayed him in the last three preseason games, including Thursday, when Boykin threw two interceptions. Davis was 5-for-5 for 67 yards on the winning drive, completing the 16-yard touchdown strike with 1:10 remaining. Boykin is a dual-threat quarterback who at times can dazzle, but Davis is a steadier veteran who may be less susceptible to turnovers. The team's decision on a backup could come down to whether it values upside over stability, or vice versa.
Wilhoite had been dealing with a lingering calf issue since late August and was inactive for the Seahawks' season-opening loss to the Packers. The 30-year-old has increased his chances to play against the 49ers on Sunday, especially with Terence Garvin (shoulder) listed as doubtful.
Johnson landed on injured reserve last week after suffering an undisclosed injury in practice. Now that he's no longer tied to the Seahawks, the 2015 sixth-rounder can immediately begin looking for work elsewhere.
Simone was waived/injured by the Seahawks on Wednesday after suffering a torn ACL. He'll now spend the entire 2017 on the team's injured reserve.
Britt had been in the final year of his rookie deal, and his new extension keeps him under contract with Seattle through the 2020 campaign. He'll be expected to continue in his role as the team's starting center.
Willson entered with just three receptions for 25 yards through the first two weeks, so this was easily his best showing of 2017. Seattle often leans on him to help the offensive line project quarterback Russell Wilson, and Jimmy Graham is also ahead of Willson on both the depth chart and pecking order for targets. As a result, Willson's fantasy value is extremely limited.
The news means that Jordan is eligible to return to game action following Week 6. Jordan will not count against the team's 53-man roster while he's sidelined with the knee injury.
His placement on the list ahead of the season opener means that he'll be ineligible to return to action until after Week 6. Even still, there's no guarantee McDowell will be ready by then and the Seahawks have yet to define any kind of role yet for the Michigan State product.
Coleman should provide some depth to Seattle's secondary, but doesn't figure to have a huge impact defensively on Sunday's given the team's strength at the position.
The veteran tight end nursed an ankle injury last week, but fully practiced Friday and turned in a respectable fantasy showing against the Titans on Sunday. After two poor performances to start the season (four receptions for just nine yards), it was reassuring for owners that he was heavily involved in the passing attack. While the Seattle offense still has some concerns, a soft home matchup against the Colts is up next in Week 4, so Graham is positioned to have another strong outing.
Despite a decent showing in the preseason, King faced an uphill battle to earn a roster spot out of camp. That dream has officially come to an end, as he's been handed his walking papers by Atlanta.
Coach Pete Carroll said the team intended to limit Rawls' workload in his first game back. He gave no indication of that prior to the game, however. Rawls didn't have a carry after the first quarter and played two snaps in the second half. Chris Carson ran well in the fourth quarter against a tired 49ers defense. A starter hasn't been named for Week 3, but it would be surprising if Rawls was forgotten so quickly. It would also be surprising if Eddie Lacy was inactive for consecutive games, so that complicates matters too for Rawls. As does a weak offensive line that provided little running room Sunday.
Though he was a full practice participant all week, Richardson presumably still has to deal with some pain in the finger he dislocated during last week's 12-9 win over the 49ers. He also played fewer snaps than Tyler Lockett in the contest, which suggests Richardson may just be the No. 3 receiver now that his teammate is up to speed.
The penalty took place on a play where Nazair Jones intercepted Aaron Rodgers and took it to the house, before having an illegal block in the back negate the touchdown. With Lane out, Neiko Thorpe and and rookie Shaquill Griffin will take over opposite of Richard Sherman.
The designation means that Fant officially will miss the 2017 regular season. Fant knew he was going to be sidelined for the season's entirety following the ACL tear two weeks ago, but by placing him on IR, the Seahawks are able to free up a roster spot.
As expected, Thompson cleared waivers and landed on the team's IR. He will now remain there for the 2017 season unless he and the Seahawks can reach an injury settlement.
Wagner played all 49 defensive snaps against the 49ers on Sunday, so this was likely a cautionary measure more than anything else. The Seahawks' defensive anchor should be ready to go against the Titans in Week 3.
The move allows the Seahawks to free up a roster spot without having to part ways with Shead. The 28-year-old will be eligible to return to game action following Week 6, but it's unsure whether he'll be ready by that point. We should have a clearer understanding of his progress as Week 6 inches closer.
McDougald fills a clear need for a Seahawks team that previously didn't have any veteran depth at safety behind the phenomenal starting duo of Kam Chancellor (ankle) and Earl Thomas (leg) -- both of whom are recovering from surgery. It's a bit surprising McDougald had to settle for such a modest contract and a backup role, coming off a 2016 season in which he recorded a career-high 91 tackles (79 solo) while starting all 16 games for Tampa Bay. He also had 87 tackles (67 solo) and played all 16 games the previous year, but his work in pass coverage has always been questionable, which explains the inability to find a better offer.
Elliot was placed on injured reserve ahead of the team's season opener against the Packers and will be out for the entire regular season. He will now begin the rehab process in an effort to be ready for next season.
Smith spent his first three seasons with the Eagles before being released prior to training camp this summer. The 2014 first-round pick was unable to find a fit at outside linebacker in Philadelphia, tallying just four sacks in three seasons. He skipped all of the team's voluntary workouts this offseason, so he was likely looking for a change of scenery. Smith will be competing for a spot on the Seahawks' final roster this preseason.
The pass breakup was a near interception on a deep pass to Davante Adams late in the first half, but Thomas was unable to haul it in. The veteran free safety played all 82 of the Seahawks' defensive snaps and didn't appear to be inhibited in any way by last season's tibia injury.
Tyson fits the mold of a ball-hawking defensive back that Seattle tends to target in the draft. He was productive during his career at Cincinnati and capped off his senior season with five picks and five pass breakups. Tyson may not have any off the charts numbers, but he's a tough safety that should help on special teams at the very least.
