QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Drew Lock298.6182.1213512.247.0225.5107.11.28138.71
Geno Smith244.3156.4175910.265.2523.41031.17118.22

Drew Lock: After trading away Russell Wilson, who will be Seattle's starter in 2022: Lock, Geno Smith or even Baker Mayfield? With Mayfield not (currently) on the roster, it's likely that both Lock and Smith will make starts in 2022 although neither is likely to be a viable fantasy option outside of two-QB leagues.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Rashaad Penny174.48116.128.8239.51.2163.25
Kenneth Walker III158.5697.44.911181.80.4115.28
DeeJay Dallas1770.60.5118.61460.738.22
Travis Homer14.965.60.348.862.30.321.03

Rashaad Penny: Penny was a surprise first-round pick in 2018 and has only 280 rush attempts over four seasons. Despite the limited workload, he racked up 1,580 rushing yards (5.6 YPC) and 11 touchdowns on those 280 carries. Penny posted a 92/671/6 (7.3 YPC) rushing line over the final five weeks last season and led all running backs in fantasy points (half-PPR) per game (21.54) during that stretch. In addition, Penny has eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark in six of seven career games with at least 12 carries. Even though Chris Carson's status is highly uncertain, the presence of Kenneth Walker III limits the upside Penny showed late last season.

Kenneth Walker III: Walker has enormous upside ... in 2023. With Penny re-signed to a one-year deal, it's possible (or likely) that Walker trails Penny in workload (provided Penny's health cooperates). The former Spartan (and Demon Deacon) has been used sparingly in college as a receiver, but he's arguably the best pure rusher in this draft class with his powerful compact frame, contact balance and ability to break tackles.

Chris Carson: It's unclear whether Carson (neck) will ever play football again. ESPN's Brady Henderson referred to his status as "more doubtful than questionable" when leaving Carson off his 53-man roster projection.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
D.K. Metcalf901288.610.2000235.06
Tyler Lockett84.11002.78.43.317.30.1195.05
D'Wayne Eskridge29.73973.300074.35
Freddie Swain12.9158.81.300030.13
Penny Hart4.963.50.500011.8

D.K. Metcalf: The obvious concern with Metcalf (and the passing game overall) is that Russell Wilson is now in Denver. Still only 24 years old, the physically-imposing wideout enters his fourth season with three consecutive 900-yard campaigns. While his yards per reception (12.9) and target (7.5) were both career lows, he set a career high with 12 touchdowns and has now scored double-digit touchdowns in back-to-back seasons.

Tyler Lockett: Including his rushing yardage, Lockett has exceeded the 1,000-yard mark and scored at least eight touchdowns in four consecutive seasons. Given the team's run-first philosophy, there has been some up-and-down weekly output from Lockett even with Russell Wilson under center despite his full-season consistency. Add in the QB downgrade(s) with Drew Lock and Geno Smith, it's likely that we see more week-to-week volatility from Lockett.

TIGHT ENDS

Noah Fant46.5529.6300094.21

Noah Fant: Fant's 2021 numbers (68/670/4) were nearly identical to his 2020 production (62/673/3). While Drew Lock moves to Seattle with him, Fant will be no better than third in line for targets behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
