NFC WEST_SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS – Professor’s Flash Card. This article focuses on 3 tables and their analysis.

  1. 2020 PPR Rankings with Player Uncertainty Levels
  2. 2016 to 2019 Positional Based PPR Fantasy Point Averages (FPA), Team Usages, and Differences from 2019 to 4-year Averages
  3. 2015 to 2019 Team Level Targets Per Game, 2019 Usage, 5 Year of Targets/Game Usage, and DIFF in 2019.

I suggest these will present a landscape of simple data from 2019 vs. the current 2020 preseason rankings. Link to my Current Rankings Below.

=================================

2020 PPR Rankings with Player Uncertainty Levels

This Table includes:

  • Team
  • Bye Week
  • Position Rankings
  • Position
  • Overall Name
  • Fantasy Sport’s Professor’s Rankings (Scale of 100 to 0-Green to Red)
  • Uncertainty Level of High, Average or Low

The DST and Kicker ranked at 17 and 16th are not viable in redrafts for 2020. I use the DST as my DST in the best ball leagues because of the home field situation. Boom-Bust DST type is always welcome in best-ball as a DST2 or 3.

QB and RBs

Wilson is a Top QB, and I have him as QB 6th in 2020. He is excellent and has little uncertainty with his ranking. He could support an excellent passing game and does have rushing ability if needed.

The RBs are a big tent with Carson leading the mix at RB19 and low uncertainty. The next tier has 2 RBs back to back for the RB2 at the upper 50s. I lean to Hyde as the RB2 for SEA, but Penny can be in that battle. Both have middle-level uncertainty. I might take either in Best-ball leagues but not in redrafts in 2020! The other 2 RBs are ranked near the 80s. It is a murky mess for serious drafting below Carson.

TE and WRs

The SEA TEs consists of 3 Players. Olsen is ranked at TE24th with Dissly at 33th and Hollister at 35th. All have mid to high uncertainty levels. I will pass on these guys until clarity has been reached.

The WRs are a 1A and 1B type of Lockett and Metcalf at 24th and 27th WRs. They should collect plenty of Fantasy Points in 2020. Dorsett and Moore seem to be in the mix for WR3 type with high uncertainty. I would take the cheaper WRs in the tiers for 2020 (Metcalf and Moore).

2016 to 2019 Positional Based PPR Fantasy Point Averages (FPA), Team Usages, and Differences from 2019 to 4-year Averages

This Table presents:

  • Team
  • Position
  • 2016 to 2019 Fantasy Point Averages 
  • 4 Year Sum of Averages
  • % of Positional Usage by the 4-Year Date
  • % of 2019 Team Usages
  • DIFF – 2019 vs. last 4-year % Usages (Improving or Declining)

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS – Professor’s Flash Card. In 2019, only the WRs increased in Fantasy Point usages and achieved a 4-year top. The 2019 main SEA WRs were 23. Tyler Lockett,   45. DK Metcalf,  and 101. Jaron Brown.

Interestingly, SEA added  Dorsett, Phillip, from NE as well. Given the FPs from 2019, I suspect Dorsett will be the WR3 on the team. Passing will be the 2020 plan for SEA again as Wilson generated a 4-year top in raw FP in 2019 even though the QB usage had not changed.

SEA also added Greg Olsen from CAR as a TE play. The 2019 TEs were used at a -2.2% decrease, and Olsen has an opportunity to be a red-zone target for Wilson. But the SEA also has 9. Will Dissly, and 14. Jacob Hollister and that seems to be a committee for 2020. Caution.

Finally, the RBs in 2019 dropped in usage by -1.1% and both RBs 13. Chris Carson 51. Rashaad Penny is still on the team. SEA also added Hyde into the crew. He is ranked at Penny’s level, but I lean to Hyde as the SEA RB2 type. Hyde can be an excellent acquisition for 2020.  QB and WR TOPs

=================================

 2015 to 2019 Team Level Targets Per Game, 2019 Usage, 5 Year of Targets/Game Usage, and DIFF in 2019.

This Table contains:

  • Team
  • Position
  • 2015 to 2019 Targets Per Game
  • 5 Year Average of Targets Per Game
  • %2019 Usages in Targeting
  • % 5-Year Positional Usage Average
  • DIFF 2019 vs. 5-Year Average of Team Positional Usages

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS – Professor’s Flash Card. Overall Comments: 2019 for SEA was a downtime for the RBs, which dropped by -4% in Targets/Game and were only used at a reduced 18% of team targets. The current RBs are Chris Carson RB18,  Carlos Hyde at 58 Rashaad Penny RB58, and Travis Homer RB101. Given the metrics, I project for Carson in 2020 to be a low RB 2 type, which Hyde being the handcuff type only.

Next, the TEs had an up year by 2.8% T/G, and SEA used their TEs at a strong 36%. This issue for 2020 is SEA had acquired Olsen from CAR, leaving the TE as 3 viable players Greg Olsen TE24, Will Dissly TE33, and Jacob Hollister TE35 splitting the work. All TEs for 2020 are not in play unless it is a TE premium league.

Lastly, the WRs also had a slight up year by 1% and were used at 45% of the team targets. Those metrics are ok, and the WRs, Tyler Lockett WR24,  D.K. Metcalf WR27,  Phillip Dorsett WR100, and David Moore WR109 are priced near value. I note that Lockett/Metcalf seems to be WR1A and WR1B types leading to loss of value for both, but in best-ball league, each is viable as boom-bust games are likely.
