Projected Win Total

The Seahawks’ over/under currently sits at 8.5, after they went 10-6 last season. With the loss of Doug Baldwin and defensive players, this team may regress a bit this season. Russell Wilson will have his work cut out for him as the underdog once again.


Strength of Schedule

SOS is measured by calculating the fantasy points allowed by each team’s opponents to determine who has the easiest and most difficult fantasy schedules (rank #1 has the easiest schedule).

QB: 6th
RB: 6th
WR: 8th
TE: 23rd


Passing Game

QB: Russell Wilson, Paxton Lynch
WR: Tyler Lockett, Jaron Brown
WR: D.K. Metcalf, Gary Jennings
WR: David Moore, Amara Darboh
TE: Nick Vannett, Will Dissly

By no means do the Seahawks win in the air, and that is most likely going to be the case in this upcoming season. Ranking dead last in pass attempts+sacks is not what fantasy owners like to see when taking Russell Wilson or any of the wide receivers, and not to mention Tyler Lockett is by no means going at a cheap price. Currently being drafted as the WR23, Lockett is being drafted as an every week starter when last season Lockett was only able to finish as a weekly top-24 wide receiver on 43.75% of the season. Another player with a questionable ADP for the season is Wilson, who is currently being drafted at QB7. With the loss of Doug Baldwin, Wilson loses his most talented and reliable receiver he has had in Seattle.


Running Game

RB: Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer
2018 OL Run Rank: (12th)

Without a doubt, the Seahawks have one of the league’s best rushing attacks, and that is not going to change for the 2019 season. The departure of Mike Davis is only going to feed carries to the more talented runners, in Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. These two running backs are very similar in ADP, as Carson is RB28 and Penny is RB34. With the talk of spreading the work around, even to rookie Travis Homer, it will be tough to predict the weekly workload in the Seattle backfield.
