Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 5 Predicctions

The Seattle Seahawks dropped close one last week – a 60 and a 58 yard field goal along with a faked field goal for a touchdown sunk this team.

On offense, it was Marshawn Lynch and only Marshawn Lynch – the rest of the offense was brutal.

The defense showed up big once again – no worries about this unit! So which Seahawk can you trust this week for your Fantasy squad?

Let`s take a look!

Seahawks Fantasy Forecast for Week 5 QB Russell Wilson

20 yards rushing – 150 yards passing, 1 TD

It’s been four games and this is about what he has averaged. It’s all that we can expect like it or not.

RB Marshawn Lynch

120 yards rushing, 1 TD 3 catches, 20 yards

No matter what – Marshawn Lynch is going to get his yards. He is getting 20 carries per game and is averaging 105 yards.

He is the offense for Seattle and has to be started for your Fantasy team against the league’s 25th ranked defense!

WR Sidney Rice

3 catches, 40 yards, 1 TD

Sidney Rice has been Seattle’s best receiver but that certainly isn’t saying much. He has been in the 30-50 yard range all season long – I’ll split it down the middle and say he gets 40 this week. I like him to catch Russell Wilson’s only TD this week too.

He is a very, very borderline start this week except in the deepest of leagues.

WR Golden Tate

2 catches, 30 yards

Except for one game he hasn’t done anything. There is not a lot of passes to go around in Seattle – Golden Tate looks to be out in the cold!

WR Doug Baldwin

1 catch, 10 yards

Marshawn Lynch Fantasy football forecast: Seattle Seahawks Week 5 NFL projections

Start Him! No matter what – Marshawn Lynch is going to get his yards

Like I said – there is not enough passes to go around!

TE Zach Miller

3 catches, 30 yards

Zach Miller seems to be a good option for the rookie quarterback. He should get his looks and may exceed the projection. I still wouldn’t come close to starting him in Fantasy though.

PK Steven Hauschka

1 FG 2 XP


300 yards, 3 sacks, 1 interception, 1 fumble

The Seattle D isn’t quite as scary when they play on the road. Still, this unit is good enough to give Cam Newton and company fits.

They are start-able in any format for Fantasy.

If you picked the Seattle D before the season – congratulations.

Warren Moon says Pete Carroll needs to stop having Russell Wilson play like a robot

Seahawks reportedly concerned about Matt Flynn’s elbow

According to Dan Arkush of, the Seatlte Seahawks are still concerned about the Matt Flynn’s elbow. One of the reasons it wouldn’t make sense to bench Russell Wilson in favor of Flynn if the Seahawks don’t improve, is that no one knows how his elbow will hold up. “The thing is, they’re giving Wilson the great majority of reps in practice, because they...

Wagner not looking like rookie so far for Seattle

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer The question asked of Seattle coach Pete Carroll had nothing to do with Bobby Wagner.

Video: Replacement referees admits that Green Bay probably should have beat Seattle.

Now that the replacement refs are cruising through the wants ads looking for a Pop Warner team to put the screws to, some truth is coming to light. Replacement referee Wayne Elliott has stuck to his story that the touchdown call at the end of the Seattle Seahawks victory over the Green Bay Packers was the right call. Now a little over a week later, he’s backing off that stance...

Is Matt Flynn the NFL’s Best Con Artist?

In 2008 the Green Bay Packers selected Matt Flynn in the 7th round with the 209th overall pick. That year, Flynn competed with Brian Brohm for a second-string roster spot behind Aaron Rodgers, a battle that Flynn won against all odds. Brohm had advantages in size, arm strength, and speed, yet Flynn managed to beat out his fellow rookie for the title of backup quarterback.Flynn...

Canadian Dude Goes 15-for-15 in Picks During ‘Seahawks vs. Packers’ NFL Week 3 and Wins Over $700,000

I saw this article on BustedCoverage yesterday. Pretty awesome…. “Gino DiFelice and his Brantford family might want to send NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a gift basket for prolonging his labour dispute with the league’s officials. While the regular NFL officials went back to work last Thursday, DiFelice was revelling in his big Proline win, thanks in part to the replacement...
