Projected third receiver K.J. Hamler (hamstring) remains out. The first month of the season presents edge rushers Jadeveon Clowney (Titans), T.J.

The extra tight end helps there, too, the story all said.
SEA TE Nick Vannett - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at Carolina Panthers
Nick Vannett has only two catches the last two weeks and although he has a couple scores in recent weeks, his value has dropped. He will face the Panthers in a great matchup. Carolina is 30th in aFPA to tight ends. However, the recent production by Vannett limits his value. He should remain on the bench for Week 12.
