Late Round Fantasy Football 'Penny Stocks'

Fantasy Football is a lot like a Football stock market. Last year, the Enron-esque plunge of first rounders Trent Richardson and Ray Rice left many Fantasy owners’ teams worth little. Its important to pick players in the first few rounds who won’t go bankrupt by the middle of the season. It is equally important, however, to find the penny-stocks in the late rounds who can transform...

Seahawks camp preview: which wide receivers make the cut?

Let’s continue our series in previewing each position battle for the Seattle Seahawks going into training camp. Today is the most intriguing of all: the wide receiver position. It’s amazing that this team has stockpiled so much talent while maintaining a reputation for having pedestrian – or in some cases downright awful – receivers. I’m going to break this post up into...

The 2014 Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Depth Chart

Wide Outs Are Plentiful  It’s hard to believe, but we are well inside 30 days until the first preseason game for the defending Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. As you likely heard, the Seahawks made some interesting moves in the draft and free agency this offseason.  No single position in my estimation will be more interesting to watch than the 13 guys — yes, count ‘em...

Who will lock up the final Seahawks wide receiver spot?

“Always compete” is more than just a central tenet of Pete Carroll’s Seahawks. For the 13 wide receivers fighting for just six spots on the team’s roster, always competing is necessary to keeping their jobs. After Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice — who both fell to injury early last year — the 2013 Seahawks receiving corps looked slim to outside observers. Golden Tate led...

Speedy Seahawks rookie says he will return punts

When Golden Tate left the Super bowl champs in February to go after that Lannister Lion money, the Seahawks knew they had two voids to fill. Tate led the team in receptions in 2013. A healthy Percy Harvin should take over that distinction next season, but Tate also was the Seahawks’ primary punt returner. Tate’s 585 return yards ranked 2nd best in the NFL, so it’s a lot of...

Power Rankings: NFC West, Seattle Seahawks’ home, named NFL’s best division

Yesterday, the World Cup kicked off in Brazil, a sporting event that once again introduces fans around the globe to the concept of “group play.” It’s essentially an elaborate round-robin tournament, where 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four, with each group only playing against teams within that group to see who will advance. Every team is guaranteed three games...

The case for extending Jermaine Kearse

This is the final installment in a four-part series examining whether the Seahawks should give speedy wide receiver Jermaine Kearse the type of long-term, low-cost contract extension that the team recently gave Doug Baldwin. In Part One I examined the Seahawks’ outlook at wide receiver; in Part Two I looked at Kearse’s strengths; and in Part Three I looked at Kearse’s weaknesses...

Grading the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver corps

Yesterday the main cover32 NFL site came out with a power rankings list of every wide receiver corps in the NFL. The Chicago Bears’ deadly tandem of Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall got top honors. Golden Tate’s arrival in Detroit boosted the Lions to a high spot, and the Denver Broncos murderer’s row of wideouts also earned high praise. None of these came as a surprise...

Seattle Seahawks – Pretty Pleased With Pass Catchers

Quarterback Russell Wilson thinks the Seattle Seahawks’ receivers are the “best looking” position so far on the 2014 team roster. Wilson said (via Seahawks.com) “Our receivers right now are as fast as it gets. You’ve got Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin — Jermaine Kearse is extremely fast too.

Is wide receiver Jermaine Kearse the next Doug Baldwin?

Last week the Seahawks signed the tiny but mighty wide receiver and third-down maestro Doug Baldwin to a three-year contract extension worth $13M, with additional performance-based incentives. It’s rare to see any NFL player signed to such a long contract that will pay (relatively) little in overall value: if a team wants to make a long-term commitment to a player, that player...

Breaking Down the Seattle Seahawks 2014 NFL Draft Class

The Seattle Seahawks are where they are today because of great drafting.  Getting Richard Sherman in the fourth round, K.J Wright in the second, Russell Wilson in the third, Kam Chancellor in the fourth, and Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, and Michael Bennett as undrafted free agents certainly helps. After each draft, I'm usually sitting here, writing this same article about...

Seahawks pitch for undrafted rookie free agents

The Seattle Seahawks utilize rookie free agents perhaps better than any other team in the NFL and that’s a big reason why they have the best front office in the league. Wide receivers Doug Baldwin, Ricardo Lockette and Jermaine Kearse all made major plays in the team’s playoff run en route to its 35 point Super bowl win. Speaking of which… Hey guys, remember when we won the...

Five rules changes, an extensive crackdown on on-field taunting and abusive language and a two-game preseason experiment that will move extra-point attempts from the 2-yard line to the 20 (effectively a 38-yard try) will bring a new look to the 2014 NFL season.
