With Jimmy Graham, Seahawks could run more multiple TE sets

They call themselves the “Bash Brothers,” a nod to the Mighty Ducks movies from the ‘90s and not the tandem of Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco from the ‘80s.

However they label themselves, tight ends Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson present Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell with an interesting two-headed chess piece. It seems likely that Bevell and the Seahawks will deploy even more two-tight-end formations than in previous seasons after adding Graham via trade this offseason. (The Seahawks also have tight ends Anthony McCoy, Cooper Helfet and RaShaun Allen competing for roster spots.)

“I think a lot of double- and triple-tight-end sets for us are really going to start to come out this year and really give defenses a fit,” Graham said. “We’re going to be able to run the ball so effectively with all those tight ends in the game. But also in the pass, play-action is going to be pretty amazing.”

In June, Bevell said the Seahawks’ two-tight-end formation is one of his favorites because of the difficult choices it forces defenses to make.

Fantasy Impact:

If the Seahawks go with more two-tight-end formations, they will need Graham to block for running back Marshawn Lynch. Graham’s blocking has long been one of the few concerns about him, the story said. Graham added he's been banged up the last two years and didn't block like he's capable of. The story also added that Graham knows he won’t see as many passes in Seattle as he did in New Orleans, which means he will have to capitalize on the important ones and he's prepared to do that. Graham still ranks as our number-two TE and it sounds like he's going to be a big part of the offense even if his targets drop. Multiple TE sets could also hurt the fantasy value of Seattle WRs.

Seahawks tight end Anthony McCoy, who is battling for the backup job this season, injured his Achilles tendon during Tuesday’s practice, according to coach Pete Carroll.

McCoy missed all of last season with an Achilles injury, but Carroll said the “early indications” are that McCoy injured his other Achilles. He was carted off the field during practice after staying down on the field for a few minutes.

“If it is what they think it is, it’s just a real heartbreaker,” Carroll said. “He worked so hard to get back.”

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.

Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy (back, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 17.

Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy (groin, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 4.

Seahawks tight end Zach Miller has eight catches through Seattle's first five games, and he's in his second week sitting out practice for an injury to his head and neck. That's not quite the return Seattle expected on its top-shelf investment in what it viewed as one of the game's rising young tight ends.

In Week 5 at the Giants, he was hit high by safety Kenny Phillips on a pass overthrown by Tarvaris Jackson. He returned to the game, but left because of pain in his neck. There's no timetable for his return to the field, and without him, the Seahawks are down to Anthony McCoy as the only tight end on the active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie WR Golden Tate is a bit of a surprising inactive. Look for Deion Branch and Mike X Williams to start at wide out.
