Seattle Seahawks tight end Nick Vannett (back) and running back C.J. Prosise are inactive for Week 6 against the Raiders in London. With Vannett out, the Seahawks will be forced to roll with Darrell Daniels and Tyrone Swoopes at the position. Neither player is worth considering as a desperation flier in fantasy leagues. Prosise remains a healthy scratch while being buried on the depth chart behind Chris Carson, Mike Davis, rookie Rashaad Penny and J.D. McKissic.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Nick Vannett has been sidelined much of this week due to a lingering back injury, but head coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Friday that he expects Vannett to play on Sunday. Carroll seemed supremely confident as he told reporters that Vannett was out of practice Friday only for rest and said, "He's ready to go." Vannett isn't a huge threat in the passing game as he's more of a blocking tight end, but he sees 3-5 targets a game and could be used as a long shot for a touchdown. Those in bye week situations can take a gamble.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Nick Vannett (back) is listed as questionable to face the Raiders in Week 6 in London. Vannett has been serving as the main pass-catching tight end with rookie Will Dissly out for the year, but he remains a desperation TE2 for those owners hurting at the position. If he sits out, Seattle would be forced to go with Darrell Daniels at tight end.
