NEWS: Percy Harvin to be kept healthy in 2014?

According to Tyler Dunne on Twitter, Seattle coach Pete Carroll had this to say on WR Percy Harvin: “A unique football player. He’s going to have a significant role. … Will be very important to keep him healthy.”

SMITTY: If Percy Harvin can stay healthy, which is a big IF, he could certainly be a top 15 fantasy wide receiver, and Russell Wilson could dance with the top 5-8QBs this year. Looking for Percy Harvin and Russell Wilson Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Robert Turbin rips of 81 and 1TD in Week 2 preseason outing; Keenan Allen pulls in a TD.

Seahawks RB Robert Turbin ran the ball 12 times for 81 yards and 1TD during his Week 2 preseason contest against the Chargers. Christine Michael ran the ball eight times for 45 yards. Russell Wilson looked strong in this game, completing 11-of-13 passes for 121 yards (to go along with four rushes for 31 yards and 1TD). Keenan Allen pulled in a 13-yard TD in the contest.

SMITTY: Robert Turbin looked good, I won’t lie, but everything he did in this contest, Christine Michael would have done better and faster. I keep emphasizing buy-low when talking about sleepers, because coaches can ruin fantasy upside. If Seattle doesn’t let go of the idea of using Turbin, this could leave fantasy owners extremely disappointed in 2014, as Turbin could play a significant back-up role in 2014. Do I think that will happen? Probably not, as Michael is just too explosive to keep off the field. Still, when trading for players, you have to buy low and buy at value that will have you earning your investment dollars back even on a disappointing campaign. At this point, I still expect Michael to be starting in 2015. As for this preseason contest, it was great seeing Keenan Allen pulling in a score – He looks so crisp with his routes and footwork. I still have Allen as one of my favorite underrated studs heading into 2014. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Jermaine Kearse running with the first-team in Seahawks camp?

According to reports, Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse has been regularly running with the first-team during Seahawks camp.

SMITTY: Folks, Jermaine Kearse could be an emerging talent… make sure he isn’t on waives in any of your dynasty leagues. If he is, scoop him up. No one is a lock, and he is very unproven, but he looked great down the stretch in 2013, and this isn’t the first time we’ve heard good things about his off-season. With Kearse looking sharp, and with Percy Harvin looking healthy, Russell Wilson might be able to take that extra step in fantasy production. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Marshawn Lynch not likely to retire?

According to NFL Media’s Jordan Babineaux, Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch isn’t likely to retire this off-season. “I don’t see Marshawn walking away just yet,” Babineaux said Friday morning. “He’s working on his training. He’s doing the normal things that he always does.”

SMITTY: I don’t think many people really believe Lynch will retire, as one usually doesn’t go from wanting a new deal (more money) to walking away from roughly $7 million that is already set to come his way. With Russell Wilson (still making under $1 million per season) needing to be extended, and with Lynch already getting paid right around top five running back money (through 2014 and 2015), why would Seattle do anything at all? Let’s say Lynch holds out, well, Christine Michael, one of my absolute favorite dynasty gems heading into the future, will just further secure-up his future with what would likely be impressive play. And, if Lynch doesn’t hold out, he is very likely to have yet another top 5-10 fantasy running back season, but still go on to face a potential release come this time next off-season, as the Seahawks will probably turn the keys over to Michael. Anything can happen between now and next off-season, but the casual fantasy football fan is going to laugh at the idea of the Seahawks releasing Marshawn Lynch in 2015, so strike now in dynasty leagues and go get one of this year’s top “stashes” (a “stash” that even has “secret weapon” appeal for 2014, as Lynch has a lot of mileage on his wheels).
