When it comes to The Seattle Seahawks, who are some fantasy stars that you can remember?
In the past ten years, you can probably think back to a few. Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, Shaun Alexander, Russell Wilson, and that stellar Seahawks D/ST back when the Legion of Boom was around.
Each year, the organization tends to have a few players you want to place in the starting lineup.
Here are the top 5 Seahawks Fantasy Players from 2000 to now:
Seahawk legend, Shaun Alexander was a workhorse running back for the Seattle Seahawks. Who could forget his ability to power through defenses with his quickness and toughness? He was such a stud on the field that he even made it on the cover of Madden 2007.
Alexander’s best season by far was in 2005 when he averaged 22.7 points per game.
2. Marshawn Lynch
On the same token, we have another incredible Seahawk running back. Marshawn Lynch obviously has to be on the list despite some injuries. He performed well under Matt Hasselbeck – especially on his “Beastquake” run against the Saints in 2011.
On the topic of fantasy, you can’t dismiss Marshawn Lynch. You could count on him getting at least one big breakaway run a game. As you monitor him during fantasy, you could notice steady gains as the game progresses.
In 2012, the season the Seahawks won Super Bowl 48 is when Lynch peaked with 15 rushing touchdowns. He was always a top-tier running back and definitely helped win some leagues.
3. Russell Wilson
There’s no question that Russell Wilson is one of the Seahawks’ best fantasy football assets. He was healthy for most of his time in Seattle and fairly reliable.
If it weren’t for his stellar defense, solid run game, and reliable receivers such as DK, Lockett, and Baldwin, he might not have thrived as well as he did.
When Wilson started his career with the Seahawks he racked up big yardage on the run game similar to Kyler and Lamar, but that panned out and the “let Russ cook” movement came into fruition.
4. Seahawks D/ST
Aside from offense, the Seahawks Legion of Boom led the way several years back during their Super Bowl Runs.
Bobby Wagner held it down as the leader of the defense. Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril applied pressure on the frontlines and the Legion of Boom created a “no-fly zone” on the back-end.
The Seahawks’ defense was dominant in points allowed, rush yards allowed, and passing yards allowed for several years. With the new rebuild, we can look to see the defense getting back to its old ways again.
5. Doug Baldwin
Doug was a little more inconsistent in Fantasy, but nonetheless, a high-value WR to have slotted in the starting lineups. His peak seasons were in 2015 and 2016.
The Stanford graduate came out and shocked the world with his gritty, quick, and intelligent style of play. “Angry Doug” as some called him when called out by Deion Sanders.
“My man Deion Sanders said we are ‘aight, huh? We ‘aight? Yeah, we ‘aight. We are going to go to the Super Bowl again being ‘aight.”
