Seahawks TE Zach Miller will come off PUP today per HC Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Impact:

Miller didn't do much during the regular season (38-396-3), but he did post 12 catches (on 15 targets) for 190 yards and a TD in two playoff games against the Redskins and Falcons. He's just 27, and had a couple of very solid seasons for the Raiders in 2009 and 2010.

Tampa Tribune - [Full Article]

When discussing the tight end position for Tampa Bay, there’s a deeper conversation to be had. Luke Stocker might be the incumbent to the job and he’s the guy you’d most expect to become the so-called starter – he already knows the offense, he’s the highest draft pick in the group and he has ability – but Stocker has company.

Stocker has significant competition. Most notable among his rivals is Tom Crabtree, signed from the Packers early in the offseason.

Don’t be surprised when you start hearing more about guys like Nate Byham, Danny Noble and Zach Miller. None, including Stocker, is a very accomplished NFL player. But each has varying degrees of experience and intriguing skills.

Fantasy Impact:

The article mentioned that TE is not a position featured in OC Mike Sullivan’s scheme, but, Dallas Clark was targeted 76 times and caught 47 passes last season. Still, we predict Stocker to catch under 30 balls and he's ranked just 39th on our list.

USA Today - [Full Article]

Seattle Seahawks tight end Anthony McCoy suffered a torn Achilles tendon during organized team activities this week and underwent surgery on Thursday repair the injury, a person informed of the diagnosis told USA TODAY Sports.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't confirmed the injury, said McCoy will miss at least six months.

Fantasy Impact:

This could mean additional work for Zach Miller, who didn't do much during the regular season (38-396-3), but did post 12 catches (on 15 targets) for 190 yards and a TD in two playoff games against the Redskins and Falcons. He averaged 3.6-38-.33 over his final nine games (including the postseason) which translates to 57-601-5.3 (TE15 numbers) over the course of a 16-game season. He's just 27, and had a couple of very solid seasons for the Raiders in 2009 and 2010. He played 85% of Seattle's snaps in 2012.

Fantasy Impact:

Jennings practiced on Saturday and insists he's playing. Things are certainly looking up, but he's only a WR2-type start even if he does play on Monday night, so don't bench solid options on Sunday hoping that Jennings will play.

Bucs trade Kellen Winslow to Seahawks, sign Dallas Clark

Tuesday, May 22, 2012, 2:33am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded tight end Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks for a draft pick on Monday night and signed former Colts star Dallas Clark to replace him.

Earlier in the day, Winslow told SiriusXM radio that first-year coach Greg Schiano was "kind of upset" that Winslow has not been working out with the team during the offseason.

"That's kind of shocking, but that's what it is," Winslow said, adding that Schiano told him the coach "would help me out with a trade."

Tampa Bay received a conditional 2013 draft pick in the deal, which a source told ESPN.com's Mike Sando is a seventh-rounder that can elevate to sixth-round choice.

Winslow will join a tight end unit that already includes Zach Miller, who Seattle gave a big contract last offseason, and promising young prospect Cameron Morrah, who has struggled with injuries early in his career. The Seahawks lost tight end John Carlson in the offseason after he signed with Minnesota.

Tampa Bay gets a player who was one of Peyton Manning's favorite targets.

Clark, who turns 33 next month, spent nine seasons with Indianapolis and had 427 career receptions for 4,887 yards and 46 touchdowns. Last season, without Manning and limited by injuries to 11 games, Clark had 34 catches for 352 yards and two touchdowns. He worked out for the Bucs last week.

"Dallas Clark is a consummate pro and proven playmaker," Tampa Bay general manager Mark Dominik said. "He will be another asset, on and off the field, for our team. In addition to Luke Stocker's continued improvement in his ability as an every-down tight end, we feel we have both talent and depth at the tight end position."

Fantasy Impact:

Interestingly, the Bucs GM referred to Stocker as an "every-down tight end," so perhaps the team is planning to play him ahead of Clark, who can't have much left in the tank. Winslow's value in Seattle takes a nosedive as he will likely serve as Zach Miller's backup.

Seahawks sign Matt Flynn to three-year deal worth as much as $26M

Matt Flynn has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a contract worth up to $26M with $10M guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact:

With just two starts in his NFL career, the book on Flynn is thin, but it's a very good read. In 2010, with Aaron Rodgers sidelined due to a concussion, Flynn completed 24-for-37 passes for 251 yards, three TDs and an interception in a near-upset of the Patriots in Foxboro. Last season, with Rodgers resting in Week 17, Flynn had a record-setting day, throwing for 480 yards and six TDs (with just one pick) against the Lions in not-so-great conditions at Lambeau Field. He joins a Seattle offense that has a few good weapons in the passing game, including Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Zach Miller. Rice's health will be key. While Flynn doesn't have an overpowering arm, he's accurate and is very poised in the pocket. He'll likely be a middle round fantasy pick (going in the 10th-12th rounds) best suited for spot duty in a Quarterback By Committee (QBBC).

Vikings sign TE John Carlson for five years, $25 million

Wednesday, March 14, 2012, 1:13pm

Vikings reached agreement with former Seahawks tight end John Carslon on a five-year, $25 million deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Carlson showed promise in his first two seasons, posting 55-627-5 and 51-574-7 in his rookie and sophomore years, respectively. But the Seahawks acquired Zach Miller last summer, and Carlson's usage dropped. He finished with just 31 receptions for 318 yards and a TD in 2011. The signing is somewhat curious given the fact that the Vikings already have a talented young TE on the roster in Kyle Rudolph, who caught 26 passes for 249 yards and three TDs playing behind Visanthe Shiancoe. Carlson's arrival puts a dent in Rudolph's sleeper value.
