Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Seahawks Defense And Special Teams Worth A Look

When it comes to the Seattle Seahwaks, it's generally not a good idea to rely on any secondary offensive options. The Seahawks might be playing better the last few weeks, but it's likely you already have the main options of Tarvaris Jackson and Marshawn Lynch on your team, with Doug Baldwin also in the mix as a main top receiver. So it'd be hard to pick anyone else up on that side of the football and hope for consistent numbers.

It might be best to turn to the other facets of scoring, particularly the Seahawks defense and special teams. The defense has played some pretty strong football, and it should continue next week when they face the moribund Chicago Bears sans Caleb Hanie and Matt Forte. Considering how much trouble Seattle has had punching it into the end zone when they get it on the opposite side of the field, Steven Hauschka is also worth a look at the kicking spot. Don't feel too strongly on banking on any of these guys.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 12: Tarvaris Jackson And Doug Baldwin Your Seahawks Possibilities

The Seattle Seahawks haven't been amazingly productive offensively this season, but they've been looking mildly productive as the season wears on. And now the Washington Redskins come to town this week.

Tarvaris Jackson at home against Washington is intriguing. Jackson hasn't been playing amazing, but he has been effective, and if you need a quarterback right now in case of emergency, Jackson is a guy you should look to this week.  Don't expect him to be a long-term option, but the Skins are struggling, and Jackson could exploit that if he gives his best game.

With regards to Jackson's main targets, Doug Baldwin is solid if he's around in your fantasy league. Baldwin has surpassed Sidney Rice as the main guy for Jackson to hit on the field, particularly in the end zone. Both of them are really guys you could look at if you need an extra wide receiver this week.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 11: Golden Tate, Seahawks Defense Best Option

The Seattle Seahawks didn't look like a good team a week ago offensively, which is why there were no real options to use on the waiver wire from this team. But after a decent performance against the Baltimore Ravens and a mediocre opponent in the St. Louis Rams forthcoming, there are some okay options this week if needed.

Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is worth a look but only if Doug Baldwin and/or Sidney Rice miss this week with their concussions. If they're both out, Tate against Rams is a good matchup as a third or fourth receiver option.
   
The Seahawks defense has some value if the Rams keep on underperforming. It wasn't much, but it's potentially worth a pickup.

Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has done a surprisingly okay job this year by minimizing interceptions, so if your regular quarterbacks are out of commission, Jackson is worth a bye week start here.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 10: Don't Play Any Seahawks This Week

The Seattle Seahawks are in deep trouble, and their offense doesn't seem to be getting much better, generating barely 10 points per game since the bye week. Despite the strength of Marshawn Lynch's peformance, no one really else stepped up. Doug Baldwin and Ben Obomanu both put up weak performances last week against the Dallas Cowboys,  making you think that it'll be hard for them to put up consistent numbers.

Guess who's next on the docket? The Baltimore Ravens.

So it doesn't really matter that this is a home game. You might as well be treating this week as a bye for any Seahawks offensive player and keep them out of your lineup, unless you are a fan of smashing your keyboard or breaking your remote control this Sunday. There are plenty of good offensive weapons out there, but it's not likely that picking up any Seahawk will do you any good this week.

If you really need a Seahawk this week (likely Baldwin or Lynch), your team is probably in serious trouble.

Fantasy Football Sit/Start Projections, Week 9: Tarvaris Jackson, Marshawn Lynch Could Be Decent Plays

The Seattle Seahawks travel to face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, looking to get back on the winning track. The Seahawks have had some quarterback turmoil due to injuries but look to have Tarvaris Jackson back for Sunday's game. Jackson has put together some solid fantasy performances this season, which could make him an intriguing option, as well as several other members of the Seahawks offense.

Jackson himself is actually a solid start option if you are looking for a quarterback due to the week nine byes. Jackson is not a fantastic option, but he has enough scrambling skills to add some value. He threw for 323 yards last week, his second 300-yard performance of the season.

Sidney Rice has been on a nice little roll when Jackson is playing QB and could be a solid flex option or even a WR2 depending on your byes and injuries. Doug Baldwin is a slightly less attractive option, but he is coming off a solid 73-yard effort last week.

Marshawn Lynch is a solid play this week against a struggling Cowboys rush defense. Lynch is always an injury question mark, but he could be decent this week. If Seattle is going to spring the upset, they will need to control the time of possession. If Seattle falls behind big early, that hurts Lynch, but there is enough upside to roll the dice.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 9: Tarvaris Jackson, Zach Miller, Ben Obomanu Good Seahawks Options

The Seattle Seahawks might have had another horrible loss on Sunday afternoon, but they actually do have some decent fantasy options you can pick up! So there's that.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson played really well in relief of Charlie Whitehurst, racking up 323 passing yards in just under three quarters. Although there's always the danger of interceptions with Jackson, he's playing a reeling Dallas Cowboys team next week and could have a chance to surprise with some solid numbers. At worst he can be a decent bye week fill-in for your regular starter.

In terms of receiving, Seahawks TE Zach Miller is also a decent option, as Jackson does seem to like to target him. With Seattle's inability to punch it in the end zone, he isn't any better than a bye week fill-in. Probably the most reliable receiving option is the guy we told you to pick up last week. Ben Obomanu led the Seahawks in receiving thanks to some big catches.

Fantasy Football Week 8 Start/Sit: Not Many Options Up In Seattle

With running backs constantly finding themselves injured and an ever evolving situation at quarterback, it's a bit of a no-man's-land for fantasy football owners wither players from the Seattle Seahawks. They take on another staunch defense from the midwest in the Cincinnati Bengals this week, here's a look at some of the Seahawks options for you fantasy squad for week 8. 

Marshawn LynchNumberfire.com lists Lynch as high risk choice on your starting squad this week after being scratched late against the Browns due to back spasms. Lynch has also been dealing with some ankle problems this season a well, and due to the unpredictable nature of 'spasms' may not be available this week. Either way, if you have a better option at RB then go for it, especially against a Bengals D that is allowing only 89 yards to opponents this season, fifth best in the league. 

Prediction: Sit

Sidney Rice: Numberfire lists Rice as a very high risk choice this week, and I can do nothing but agree. With only 17 catches and one touchdown this season for Rice, there isn't much hope for him breaking out against this Bengals D with either Tavaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurst throwing him the ball. Hopefully he can have a Plaxico Burriss type game with with TD's, but I just don't see it happening against the Bengals this week. 

Prediction: Sit

Ben Obomanu: With 30 targets and two touchdowns this season, Obomanu has been one of the more consistent offensive players on this Seahawks roster. He may be benefitting from the attention placed on Sideny Rice by the defense, but nevertheless is a decent option if you need another receiver. He's another high risk player for Numberfire, but if you really, really need him he's probably available in most leagues. 

Prediction: Sit (unless absolutely needed)

Seattle Defense: They did well against the Browns last week, but the Browns don't have the kind of offensive weapons that the Bengals do, especially at the receiver position. That being said I don't foesee Andy Dalton torching Seattle's D all afternoon, nor do I think the Bengals will put up a lot of points this week, so I'd say this would be a good week for them in fantasy if you other defense is on a bye. 

Prediction: Start
