The Detroit Lions have hired Darrell Bevell as the new offensive coordinator, the team announced Wednesday.

Bevell most recently spent seven seasons, from 2011-17, with the Seattle Seahawks as the offensive coordinator. During his time in Seattle, Bevell helped the Seahawks appear in the playoffs in five of his seven seasons.

Fantasy Impact:

Bevell's offenses have been more run-oriented during his 12-year career as a play-caller. His offenses have had an average ranking of 9.3 in rush attempts and a ranking of 23.5 in pass attempts, though in his last two seasons with the Seahawks, he was a bit more pass-friendly.

Seahawks Beat: Extending QB Russell Wilson will be big priority

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Russell Wilson has just one year left on his contract before free agency. The Seahawks’ efforts to lock him up before the season begins eventually will take center stage, once they figure out what to do with Frank Clark, K.J. Wright and a few others.

To my way of thinking, if the Seahawks come to training camp in July with Wilson safely in fold, contentedly extended for three or four or five years, it will have been a productive offseason.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say, on the flip side the last thing the team needs is a disgruntled QB with an unsettled contract situation entering a promising 2019 campaign. But, Wilson would likely play out his final year without issue being the pro he is, however the Seahawks surely don't want to let Wilson become a free agent. The story compared the situation to former baseball player Alex Rodriguez, who got a mega-contract he couldn't refuse and left the Seattle Mariners.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin to play Week 17

Friday, December 28, 2018, 7:48pm

Seahawks official injury report

Doug Baldwin (shoulder) is all set to play on Sunday after being removed from Seattle's injury report.

Fantasy Impact:

Baldwin is a solid WR2 who has been consistently out-performing expectations late in the season. He has topped 23 PPR points in each of the last two games.

Friday, December 28, 2018, 6:29pm

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (shoulder) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Baldwin is expected to play.

Friday, December 28, 2018, 6:29pm

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee, questionable) took full practice reps again Thursday and is questionable for Week 17. If Penny returns, it puts a small dent in Chris Carson’s upside this week. In the four games that Penny has missed, Carson has averaged 25.5 touches compared to just 16.1 touches in the nine games in which Penny has played.

Seahawks extend HC Pete Carroll

Q Fox 13 - [Full Article]

The Seattle Seahawks have signed Executive Vice President of Football Operations & Head Coach Pete Carroll to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced on Christmas Eve.

"I am excited to announce that we have extended Head Coach Pete Carroll through the 2021 season," said Jody Allen, Seahawks Chair and Trustee of the Paul G. Allen Trust. "This will continue the championship culture that we have created in Seattle."

Fantasy Impact:

Carroll, hired as Seattle's eighth head coach on January 11, 2010, has led the Seahawks to seven playoff appearances with a combined 97-59-1 record, back-to-back Super Bowl appearances in 2013-14, 10-plus wins in five-consecutive seasons (2012-16), and four NFC West Division titles. Prior to his arrival, Seattle posted 10-plus wins only five times in the previous 34 years.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny expected back for Week 17

Carroll says Rashaad Penny "should come roaring back this week.''

Fantasy Impact:

The Seahawks play the Cardinals in Week 17, and while Seattle said it plans to play starters, if things get lopsided enough Penny could possibly see a big workload in the second half.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. After catching a couple of touchdowns last week, consider him a fantasy WR2 against the Chiefs.
