Seattle Seahawks 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Seattle Seahawks.




Russell Wilson461.2295.23643.529.528.5367.6371.82.03296.12
Not only were Wilson's pass attempts (427) a five-year low, but his rushing attempts (67) were a career low and he failed to rush for a touchdown for the first time in his career. Even so, Wilson finished the season as fantasy's QB9. Before 2018, Wilson ended the year as a top-three QB in three of four seasons and he has finished as a top-12 quarterback every year of his career.

Even though Wilson ranked 20th in pass attempts, only Patrick Mahomes and Andrew Luck threw more touchdowns than Wilson (35). While his career-best 8.2 TD% was more than two full percentage points above his career average (6.0 TD%), Wilson has thrown at least 34 touchdowns in three of the past four seasons.

Chris Carson227.91002.87.4124.6200.50.49167.73
Dominating running back touches over first-round rookie Rashaad Penny, Carson toted the rock 247 times for 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns and added 20 catches for 163 more over 14 games. The disparity in workload between Carson (267 touches, 73.96%) and Penny (94, 26.04%) won't be as large as it was last year, but I'd expect Carson to still get the larger share of the workload in one of the league's most run-heavy attacks.
Rashaad Penny171.6789.44.7220.8170.60.42126.84
In better shape than last year, Penny was on the short end of last year's 74-26 split in workload with Carson, but that margin should narrow in 2019. Earlier this year, coach Pete Carroll said of the Carson-Penny duo that "I don't know who's one and who's two, it doesn't matter to me." Given his first-round pedigree, Penny has enormous upside in Seattle's run-first attack even if he enters the season as Carson's backup.

Tyler Lockett72.41017.26.711.359.30.34149.89
Despite a consistent level of targets -- 66 to 71 -- in all four of his seasons, Lockett posted career highs in receptions (57), yards (965) and touchdowns (10) as he shattered previous career highs in catch rate (81.4%), yards per reception (16.9) and yards per game (60.3). While those ratios may regress closer to the mean, Lockett's target volume is all but assured to increase at the same time given Doug Baldwin's retirement.
David Moore38.7561.24.641.36.50.0184.67
When given the opportunity, Moore was highly effective -- 17.1 Y/R and a TD per every 5.2 receptions last year. The expected bump in volume gives Moore some upside and makes him a decent late-round sleeper to target.
D.K. Metcalf30.6477.44.132.5150.0374.2
A size-speed freak (6-3, 228, 4.33 forty, 40.5-inch vertical), Metcalf's field-stretching abilities are a good fit with Russell Wilson, who said during minicamp that Metcalf was "looking really, really special." In addition, Wilson praised Metcalf's "knowledge of the game" as the first thing that stands out with the rookie receiver. In Seattle's low-volume passing attack, Metcalf is a better target in best-ball formats than he is season-long leagues.

Jaron Brown11.81441.4200022.92

Will Dissly24.92592.4900040.84
Dissly had a monster first week (3/105/1), but the rookie tore his patellar tendon in Week 4. There is "no doubt" that he will be ready for the start of the regular season, but it's unlikely that he provides consistent fantasy-relevant production in 2019.
