Sorry for the late post but work and working out slowed me down. This whole having a job thing kind of sucks. Anyways, you can see part one here and part two here. This, however, is part three and you can see it HERE.
The Seattle Seahawks made big news early on in Free agency by signing Sidney Rice to a big deal. However, they lost their very good but under-rated ILB Lofa Tatupu and also lost starting QB Matthew Hasselbeck. They made some other moves like getting Tavaris Jackson to be their starting QB but ultimately, you would have to say they have lost so far in Free Agency.Free Agency Signings
Getting Brandon Mebane, Robert Gallery, and Sidney Rice will help. However, I think losing Lofa Tatupu and Matthew Hasselbeck is going to hurt a lot. Signing Alan Branch should help solidify the DL but they still will be struggling to win many games as their offense will be anemic and their defense will struggle mightily.
I think the Seahawks are going to struggle a lot this year. I think they will be picking in the top five of the draft next year and possibly first overall. Tavaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst will not get it done at the QB spot and who knows what Marshon Lynch will provide at RB. Also, Sidney Rice is very injury prone and their defense lacks a real play-maker.
Players I expect to Thrive
- Mike Williams: Williams might be the lone bright spot in this offense. I think he won't be great but 800 yards and 8 TDs could be inline. (Incase you could not tell, I am almost positive Sidney Rice gets hurt again this year)
Fantasy Players to Watch
- Marshon Lynch: I am not too high on Lynch because he is inconsistent but picking him up as a UDFA might be smart because it is possible he actually puts his attention to the game instead of being a straight up gangster he could be a top 10 RB.
- The Seahawks are going to be really bad this year. They have no QB, an inconsistent RB, a good WR that is very injury prone, a bad OL that will rely on rookies, and a bad defense. I think they will be in the top 10 of the NFL Draft at best and #1 at worst (which will be good for the future since they will get Andrew Luck). I think the ceiling on this team is five wins and the floor is two wins.
