Running back Chris Carson still sits on top of Seahawks Week 3 depth chart.

Related players: Rashaad Penny

Fantasy Impact:

HC Pete Carroll said Carson was "gassed" from playing special teams, thus the reason for not playing in the second half. He also said he wanted to get a look at Penny, who carried the ball 10 times for just 30 yards.

Carroll: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson 'over-trying'

The phase Pete Carroll used was “over-trying.”

That’s how the ninth-year Seahawks head coach described the play of veteran quarterback Russell Wilson on ESPN 710 on Tuesday morning, hours after Seattle dropped a 24-17 decision to the Chicago Bears to fall to 0-2.

Fantasy Impact:

Wilson had one interception and a lost fumble in the defeat. He was also sacked six times, five of which occurred in the first half. Seattle’s 12 sacks allowed through two games ranks dead last in the NFL. Carroll added Wilson is pressing in difficult situations instead of getting rid of the ball. He has a tough matchup against the Cowboys in Week 3.

Pete Carroll says Chris Carson got “gassed” also playing special teams tonight, and coach wanted to see what Rashaad Penny could do.

Fantasy Impact:

Strangely, Carson had just six carries in the game for 24 yards, which makes one wonder why Carson was playing special teams. Meanwhile, Penny carried the ball 10 times for just 30 yards.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) missed practice Thursday. Baldwin isn’t going to play against the Bears. In a tough matchup against the Broncos, Tyler Lockett turned four targets into three catches for 59 yards and a score, while Brandon Marshall posted three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown on six targets. Lockett plays mostly in the slot, where he’ll match up with Bryce Callahan, who gave up six catches on six targets against the Packers in Week 1. Callahan doesn’t have the speed to stick with Lockett, so the key will be whether the Seattle offensive line can pass protect long enough to allow Lockett to get downfield. Marshall is likely to see a lot of the shorter routes and may be the better play in PPR formats.

Pete Carroll says RB Chris Carson "really took the lead at that position'' against Denver.

Fantasy Impact:

Carroll said Penny "looked a little rusty,'' but will find ways to keep using him. The implication is that they won't split time this week the way they did last week, according to the tweet.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) could miss a few weeks

ESPN - [Full Article]

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll does not sound like he's expecting to have wide receiver Doug Baldwin available for Seattle's game against the Bears on Monday night, or perhaps the following week against Dallas either. Carroll said Baldwin could be out "a couple weeks" after suffering what ESPN's Adam Schefter reported to be a Grade 2 partial MCL tear in his right knee Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

HC Pete Carroll really sounds unsure about Baldwin, adding he and the team just have to wait. Baldwin is actually dealing with two different knee injuries.

Seahawks’ WR Doug Baldwin has a Grade 2 partial MCL tear, per source.

Related players: Brandon Marhsall, Tyler Lockett

Fantasy Impact:

The team is still trying to figure out how much time he's going to miss but comparisons would put him in the 2-4 week time frame. Keep in mind this is Baldwin's right knee and it was his left knee that gave him issues in the offseason.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin injures right knee

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin left the Seahawks-Broncos game in the second quarter with a knee injury and it was announced in the third quarter that he will not return to the game.

Baldwin appeared to hurt his right knee in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact:

It is his left knee that Baldwin was resting when he sat out the preseason, which may or may not be good news for owners. Baldwin was a starter against Denver but left with the knee injury briefly in the first quarter before returning later in the second. He did not catch a pass and was targeted just once. Baldwin made news this offseason saying his left knee likely wouldn't be 100-percent this season and it would be a lingering issue.
