Thiel: O-line together, Seahawks tear apart Bears | Sportspress Northwest
Explosive plays and a more stout line inspires the thought that the Seahawks offense can carry the team. Should the defense want a Sunday off, which seems unlikely.

Like Percy Harvin in the open field, this looks fantastic. But for Seahawks, this doesn’t mean anything — yet | Seahawks Insider - The News Tribune
Percy Harvin zooming past Chicago Bears on a kickoff and then after receptions like a Bugatti past so many Car2Gos. Earl Thomas flying down the left sideline while returning a punt 59 yards. Russell Wilson coolly turning what would have more sacks against most quarterbacks into first downs and touchdowns. Heck, even Marshawn Lynch not only carrying the ball in August but scoring.

2015 NFL Draft: South Carolina Preview -
While perhaps overshadowed by Todd Gurley and T.J. Yeldon from a national perspective, Davis was arguably the SEC's most effective back in 2013, his first season as a starter. After ranking fourth on the team in rushing (275 yards, two touchdowns) in 2012, Davis rushed for 1,183 yards (fourth-best in school history), caught 34 passes for another 352 yards and scored 11 touchdowns to earn Second Team All-SEC honors.

Silva's Late-Camp Top 150 - Goal Line Stand -
These rankings are based on standard scoring leagues, albeit with frequent references to points-per-reception formats (PPR). This is my attempt to essentially map out a fantasy draft, and provide readers with an idea of where I value players. Average Draft Position (ADP), position scarcity, upside, and projected role are all strongly considered in the rankings. I do bump up players I want readers to draft -- sometimes aggressively -- because I think they should pursue them. I bump down players I do not want readers to draft because I believe there is evidence suggesting they're best left avoided.

"It’s just a tricky situation," Graham said, via "Hopefully, I’m here. If not, hopefully I can show somebody else that I can definitely get the job done, and that’s all I’m trying to do. I know I’m not the ideal size and I don’t play as good in space as I would like. I’m getting better at it, but it’s just one of those things where I know I can go get that quarterback, and I know I can play the run good. It’s just in space, I’m trying to get a lot better at that."

FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS: Innovative Statistics, Intelligent Analysis | 2014 KUBIAK vs. ADP: The Underrated
Yesterday we looked at this year's overrated players, those who have been going higher in fantasy drafts than their KUBIAK projections say they should.
