Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Seahawks upend Vikings, 41-20

  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was his usual, efficient self going 13 of 18 for 220 yards and two touchdowns. Wilson will never blow you away with his stats but he’s extremely consistent and is on a good, young team. That is a recipe for long-term success in dynasty.
  • Seattle running back Robert Turbin has been a steady stream of more work lately, getting seven carries for 17 yards. However, he’s averaging only 3.6YPC and isn’t doing anything to hold off promising rookie Christine Michael.
  • Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner continues to fill up the stat sheet, recording nine tackles, a sack and two passes defended along with an interception. Wagner is the biggest beneficiary of Seattle’s extremely talented defense. Hold on to him like grim death.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Seattle escapes Houston, 23-20 (OT)

  • The Texans made a point to give it to Arian Foster who had 27 carries and six receptions. Backup running back Ben Tate had only seven carries and one catch.  Don’t be deterred – Tate will still get his. Now would be a perfect opportunity to pick him off for your dynasty team next year.
  • On the other side of the field, neither of Seattle’s young running backs saw the field a lot either. Robert Turbin had just three carries while Christine Michael had nothing. There doesn’t seem to be a consensus in Seattle as to who is the heir apparent to Marshawn Lynch. Be cautious with both.
  • No Seattle receiver has separated themselves as far as targets. Golden Tate and Sidney Rice each had five, while Doug Baldwin had four. That is a situation to avoid for now and later.
  • Houston Tight End Garrett Graham had five catches on six targets. While three years younger (27) than incumbent Owen Daniels (30), Graham won’t get nearly as many looks unless Matt Schaub attempts 49 passes every game.
  • Houston linebacker Whitney Mercilus busted out with 2.5 sacks. The 2012 first rounder started  the season as the starter and should be looked at on the waiver wire if you’re low on sacks.
