The Seahawks are probably one of the more frustrating teams for fantasy football team managers because outside of Marshawn Lynch, who is fairly consistent, most of Seattle's foundational offensive weapons can be featured in one game and disappear in the next. It's what we've come to expect from a team that actively tries to run fewer plays than anyone else, who highly values balance, and who designs game-plans around matchups. Zach Miller could be a go-to guy one day, and not get a target the next.

Last week's game against the Chargers was a true anomaly even for the Seahawks, as they ran a mere 40 offensive plays. Marshawn Lynch only got six carries, Percy Harvin only one target as a receiver, and Jermaine Kearse led the team in catches. Russell Wilson threw the ball 25 times, low for even him.

So, just to recap how the Seahawks' offense is spreading things out, here are the numbers:

Russell Wilson:

Week 1: 19 of 28 for 191 yards passing, 2 TD, 0 INT; 7 rushes, 29 yards
Week 2: 17 of 25 for 202 yards passing, 2 TD, 0 INT; 2 rushes, 18 yards

Marshawn Lynch:

Week 1: 20 carries, 110 yards, 2 TD; 1 target, 1 catch, 14 yards
Week 2: 6 carries, 36 yards; 4 targets, 4 catches, 27 yards, 1 TD

Percy Harvin:

Week 1: 4 rushes, 41 yards; 7 targets, 7 catches, 59 yards
Week 2: 2 rushes, 45 yards, 1 TD; 1 target, 1 catch, 5 yards

Robert Turbin:

Week 1: 6 rushes, 27 yards
Week 2: 2 rushes, 7 yards; 2 targets, 2 catches, 35 yards, 1 TD

Jermaine Kearse:

Week 1: 3 targets, 1 catch, 7 yards
Week 2: 5 targets, 4 catches, 61 yards

Doug Baldwin:

Week 1: 5 targets, 3 catches, 14 yards
Week 2: 6 targets, 3 catches, 35 yards

Zach Miller:

Week 1: 4 targets, 3 catches, 42 yards
Week 2: 1 target, 1 catch, 22 yards

Ricardo Lockette:

Week 1: 3 targets, 2 catches, 38 yards, 1 TD
Week 2: 1 target, 0 catches; 1 rush, 2 yards

Bryan Walters:

Week 1: 0 targets
Week 2: 2 targets, 2 catches, 17 yards

Derek Coleman:

Week 1: 1 target, 1 catch, 15 yards, 1 TD
Week 2:

Luke Willson:

Week 1: 1 target, 1 catch, 1 yard
Week 2: 0 targets

So, what does this data tell you? As far as targets go, is there anything that's surprising to you?
