Seahawks Fantasy Outlooks

Chris Raybon breaks down offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s playcalling tendencies to forecast who will benefit most.

  • From Week 3 through the postseason, Chris Carson averaged 20.5 touches per game — but only 1.5 came through the air. However, 50 targets is Schottenheimer’s goal for Carson this season, according to Seahawks insider Joe Fann. Projecting an additional 1.5 targets per game on top of Carson’s workload from Week 3 on would have netted him an extra 2.1 PPR and 0.9 standard points per game and respective RB11 and RB9 finishes.
  • Rashaad Penny, meanwhile, caught only eight balls in 15 games and was not targeted on a single third or fourth down, but Schottenheimer plans to use Penny more in the pass game as well, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. In games Carson was active from Week 3 on, Mike Davis averaged 6.2 carries and 2.1 receptions, while Penny averaged 4.6 carries and 0.5 receptions. Add it all up and you get a 10.8-carry, 2.6-reception workload as a best-case scenario for Penny, which would have equated 11.56 PPR and 9.03 standard points, or RB31 and RB35 finishes, respectively.
  • In the three games Doug Baldwin missed, Tyler Lockett spent slightly more time in the slot (56.2% vs. 49.5% when Baldwin played), but the big change was that he was the clear featured player in the offense, averaging a 4.7-60-0.67 line on 6.3 targets (25% target share). When Baldwin played, Lockett averaged 3.3-60-0.62 on 4.0 targets (14% target share). With Jaron Brown having played 38.2% of his snaps in the slot last season and David Moore reportedly now able to play all three receiver positions as well, Schottenheimer should have no problem freeing Lockett up for a  career-high in targets while using a rotation of Brown, Moore, and second-round pick D.K. Metcalf in the other two spots.
