Seattle Seahawks

Looking for yet another trip to the Super Bowl, the Seahawks stayed pat for the most part this off season. They made a big splash when trading away their pro bowl center Max Unger and a 1st round pick in this years daft for tight end Jimmy Graham. Even with the addition of the high profile tight end, the centerpiece of the offense is still running back Marshawn Lynch. Lynch eclipsed 1,300 rushing yards last year for his fourth straight year of at least 1,200 rushing yards. It was also his fourth consecutive year of double digit touchdowns. Under center you have the never panicked Russell Wilson. Wilson is another dual threat quarterback who calls the NFC West home. He is consistent in every aspect of the game and unlike his counterpart in San Fran, has a much more accurate arm. The aforementioned tight end Jimmy Graham will certainly make his presence felt, but don’t expect the numbers he posted in New Orleans. He truly benefited from all-world talent Drew Brees and the comforts of the Superdome. Now playing outdoors and in a run first system, Graham will become a little more human. Doug Baldwin is the only wide receiver option worth considering on this roster. Minor shuffling on the defensive side of the ball still leaves the core intact and the top option in the league. Seattle will still be know for their defense, but should provide a little more offensive pop with Graham.

QB: Russell Wilson – A QB1 in deeper leagues, but a very solid QB2

RB: Marshawn Lynch – The top RB1 option, in consideration for #1 overall draft selection

WR: Doug Baldwin – A risky WR2, more of a WR3.

TE: Jimmy Graham – Even with an anticipated drop in stat line, still a top TE1 at a historically thin position

D/ST – Still tops in the NFL and should have no issue with an every week play
