2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Seattle Seahawks
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Seahawks are one of the favorites to make the Super Bowl out of the NFC. Their defense might be the best in the game right now and the offense does good things for this team to win a lot of games. Seattle will challenge for that spot in the Super Bowl and have the talent to win it all. The only concern might be the offense, which lacks some playmakers in the passing game. Quarterback Russell Wilson might be a top receiver or two short of giving this team a special offense.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
He looked great in the preseason last year and is having a great offseason this year, so things are really looking up for second-year running back Christine Michael. He is going to get work in this offense and could move into more a timeshare with starter Marshawn Lynch. Lynch isn't getting any younger and has a lot of carries under his belt. Michael is the future at the position and should start to get his chances this season. He can be a difference maker for this offense because of his big-play potential.
FANTASY DUD
We don't think he'll be a total flop but Marshawn Lynch might have a hard time living up to his first-round draft status. As mentioned, Lynch is getting older (nearing 30 years old) and has a lot of carries under his belt the last few seasons. Plus, his running style can be a bit taxing, which is another concern. This season could be the start of a downward trend for Lynch. His best days are likely behind him.
