Nick Vannett Sees Bump In Targets

Seattle Seahawks tight end Nick Vannett was the lucky recipient of Seattle's unpredictable offensive scheme this week as he was targeted eight times. Vannett hauled in six of the eight passes for 52 yards and his first touchdown of the season, and the eight targets nearly matched his total for the last three games combined. Vannett still isn't considered a strong target for fantasy players because he's usually a blocking tight end and Seattle has Ed Dickson on the roster now, but this goes to show that each week is a bit of a mystery with Seattle's offense. Unless Vannett puts up this kind of performance more often, he shouldn't be targeted by fantasy owners.

Nick Vannett Has Touchdown Called Back

Seattle Seahawks tight end Nick Vannett only finished with one catch in the team's win over the Lions, but he was close to tacking on a touchdown. Vannett caught a beautiful fourth-down pass from quarterback Russell Wilson, but it was called back due to illegal touching by Vannett. Vannett's been the team's only real option at tight end until this week, and Ed Dickson's return could spell the end of Vannett's scoring chances. Dickson is a much more respected offensive threat, so Vannett could find himself relegated to the blocking duty he's known for.

Rashaad Penny, Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett Practice In Full

Seattle Seahawks rookie running back Rashaad Penny (finger) and tight ends Ed Dickson (quadriceps) and Nick Vannett (back) were all full participants in practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. All three players should play in Week 8 against the Lions. Penny is third behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis in the running back pecking order. He could see some touches, but it's unlikely to be enough to help fantasy owners. Dickson has been out all year but seems primes to return, and head coach Pete Carroll said he could see significant snaps right out of the gates. That's bad news for Vannett. Even if you're desperate at tight end, Dickson is merely a stash as a TE2 at the moment.
