The Yahoo Dream analysts will sneak peek all 32 NFL groups between now and the eventual start of the 2020 draft season. Here, we’ll deal with pressing fantasy questions, #FantasyHotTaeks, and group win totals. Next up, the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson is as stable as they come. With DK Metcalf on the rise, effective Tyler Lockett and now Greg Olsen at TE, what are the possibilities he completes as fantasy’s QB1?Liz: It’s certainly in his variety of possible outcomes. He is, after all, ranked the QB4 overall by the Yahoo FF team. Not many signal-callers are as efficient by means of the air and dynamite on the ground as Ciara’s husband. In 2015, with Lockett and Metcalf in tow, Wilson managed 92 red zone passing attempts ( QB2)and 75 carries( QB5). Undoubtedly, those numbers might spike, but with more youthful skills like Mahomes, Jackson, and Prescott all contending for the top spot it’s tough not to provide the benefit to
the fresher choices with greater upside. Scott: I have Wilson ranked at QB3, which is a significant position, I guess. It’s not intentional. I don’t hot taek for the sake of hot-taeking. I just enjoy his efficiency and feels it makes up for modest volume he typically receives (it likewise describes part of that modest volume). Nobody would take Wilson over Mahomes or Jackson in the current landscape, and if you want to be more value-driven with your QB, that’s fine. I get it. However when’s the last time you regretted a Wilson pick? Ever? And now he has two ludicrous skills at broad receiver.Andy: In a season like 2020, everybody has a shot at everything. Anybody who can remain healthy for 16 video games will have a big edge. That stated, I don’t believe there’s any question that Mahomes and Jackson just have higher ceilings. Wilson is a remarkable dual-threat quarterback, however Jackson remains in a various class as a hurrying risk. Still, it should not surprise anyone if Wilson again tosses his name in the MVP conversation; he’s thrown over 30 TD passes in 4 of the past 5 seasons. I ‘d say he’s a terrific bet for a top-5 surface, however I wouldn’t provide him much better than, state, a 10-15 percent opportunity to rank No. 1 overall. Story continues [. Develop or join a 2020 Yahoo Dream Football League free of charge today] DK Metcalf is ranked 24th amongst wide receivers after an impressive novice season. How big of a plausible leap might he take in 2020, or will this run-first offense hold his ceiling back?Andy: Throughout the Wilson-Carroll age , no Seattle receiver has seen more than 125 targets in any season(Baldwin, 2016 ). So it’s most likely not practical to consider Metcalf (or Lockett)a major risk to finish as the overall WR1. But Metcalf has the advantage of having fun with among the game’s most efficient and accurate passers, plus he’s a burner with 4.3-speed and remarkable strength. It’s certainly sensible to expect him to make a leap in his 2nd year; draft him expecting 1,000 backyards and 8-10 spikes.Scott: If Metcalf merely keeps in 2015’s performance and adds a little bit more chance and route diversity, I think everyone is happy. Obviously, I’m just as delighted to prepare Tyler Lockett, too. Targets from Wilson are plated in gold. I enjoy to draft wideouts who are young but with experience; to put it simply, pursue an established wideout heading into his 2nd or 3rd year.Liz: Seeing a boost in targets from Metcalf is less important to me than seeinga variety of targets from the speedster. As Andy points out above, the probability of Metcalf’s volume blossoming is slim. Nevertheless, development to his path tree would suggest development of his capability and increased adaptability. A gamer who can do more than one thing will, clearly, stay better to the franchise, and its elite QB … therefore upping the worth of said appearances. From Weeks 8-17, Metcalf managed a snap share of nearly 94 percent. In that time he ran an average of 28 routes, hauled in 4.2 balls, and published 56.7 lawns per contest. Presuming he picks up where he ended, a 70-950-9 stat line is well within factor. The Seahawks included Carlos Hyde– who had a resurgent 2019– to their backfield. Do you still buy Chris Carson, coming off an injury, as the RB1, or is this a backfield to be wary of?Scott: Hyde’s been a little underrated for many years; when the dream community determined he would never ever be really terrific, it at times overlooked that he was still capable. Hyde looks like one of those understudy RB choices who might have simply enough weekly work to bring standalone worth. He’s not always a proactive choice for me at the table, but I’ve ended up being more Hyde-friendly in current weeks. And like a lot of featured backs, Carson is likely to miss time, perhaps several video games. That’s just a reality of life for a running back in today’s NFL.Liz: I’m not exactly sure how many times Pete Carroll has to show his obligation to Carson, however possibly the third consecutive season is the charm. While it’s true that Carson’s 2019 project ended prematurely due to a hip injury, the Oklahoma State item is expected to be ready for Week 1. It ‘s being reported, however, that his backfield mate Rashad Cent –who sustained an ACL tear in December of last year-is likely to start the season on the PUPPY list. The signing of Carlos Hyde- who went through shoulder surgery in February – seems more like insurance coverage for Cent than a genuine risk to Carson’s function as the group’s RB1. Carson has been a beast over the previous two seasons, balancing over 17 attempts and 4.5 YPC per video game. He’s my RB16, which is, coincidentally exactly where he’s being prepared. Andy: Well, the factor to be careful is that both Carson and Penny are coming off significant injuries. Hyde altered the trajectory of his profession last season in Houston, however it’s quite clear he wasn’t brought to Seattle to challenge for the lead role. Presuming Carson’s hip remains in good shape at the start of the season, he’s at the top of this group’s backfield depth chart. He’s coming off a great 2019, having actually rushed for a career-high 1,230 yards(4.4 YPC) while taking 37 receptions and scoring 9 TDs. He’s exceptional. Hyde needs to be viewed as a rotational runner and understudy. In a year in which depth is crucial, there’s no question he was a clever addition to the lineup.
[2020 Draft Rankings: General | QBs | RBs | WRs | TEs | DST | Kickers] Seattle Seahawks predicted 2020 lineup. #FantasyHotTaek Andy: Let’s not overlook the addition of Greg Olsen, among the very best tight ends of his era. Clearly we have to do with a half-decade past his peak, however the tight end position gets plenty of attention from Wilson. Last year, Hollister and Dissly combined for 18 red-zone targets (and nine inside the 10-yard line). If Olsen can remain healthy-ish, he can complete top-8 at his position.OVER/ UNDER on 9.5 Win Total from BetMGM Scott: I dislike betting versus Wilson and Pete Carroll is also a pillar of stability. But the division looks nasty, maybe home field will be negligible in 2020, and Seattle’s defense is held together by scotch tape. I attempt these men to win 10 video games, no matter how much enjoyable Wilson, Lockett, and Metcalf have. Punching the UNDER.Follow Liz:@LizLoza_FF
