Around the NFL: Seahawks Defense

Jamal Adams has been traded from the Jets to the Seahawks, a reminder that the squeaky wheel is often the one that gets the grease. And I find myself a lot more interested in Seattle's defense in fantasy leagues.

Seahawks rushing attack stalls vs. Cowboys

The Seattle Seahawks finished the season strong in large part because of a league-leading rushing attack. Unfortunately for the Seahawks and any fantasy owners counting on the Seattle backfield in Saturday’sMore playoff game against Dallas, the team had one of its worst rushing performances of the season. Seattle gained just 73 yards on 24 carries in the playoff loss to Dallas. Less

Around the NFL: Seattle Defense

For a number of years, the Seattle fantasy defense was one of the first ones selected. Especially in leagues where points allowed is important, considering that four years in a row (2012-2015), it led the league in fewest points allowed. It wasn't always a great fantasy defense in sack- and turnover-based scoring systems (13th or worse in three of those years), but it wouldn't hurt you.   more »


Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

Carolina, Minnesota and Seattle project to see the weakest defenses this year. That’s what the schedule data tells us, anyway. The Panthers’ 16 opponents allowed an average of 24 points per game last year.  more »

Factoid: Goal-line rushing

So the Seahawks last night got down to the 1-yard line, and on a first and goal called a pass play that was nearly intercepted. Richard Sherman got into a sideline argument with the coaching staff about the call, saying "We've already seen how that goes."  more »

Who was the last player to run for over 200 yards in a playoff game? The involved teams play again this week. And as an additional hint, there is currently a skill-position player in the league with the same name. answer »

Factoid: Seattle Seahawks

Earl Thomas is out for the year, and that’s big. He’s probably the best safety in the game right now, and he’s probably the most valuable player on one of the league’s best defenses.   more »


Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

Strength of Schedule isn’t everything, but it can be a contributing factor. It can help explain what’s going on – and what will happen. And looking at the numbers after Week 12, teams like Miami, Arizona, Houston, Kansas City and the Giants come to mind.   more »


Factoid: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis Winston has had the hot hand recently, but I would be leery of starting him on Sunday against Seattle. The Seahawks will be missing half of their starting secondary (Earl Thomas, DeShawn Shead) but that’s just a really tough even. It’s a unit that remarkably has been even better on the road.   more »
