Bradley McDougald A Late Bloomer

Seattle Seahawks strong safety Bradley McDougald comes in at No. 8 on NFL.com's Nick Shook's top-10 coverage men from the 2019 season. His coverage success rate of 62 percent really stands out. Only three other players on Shook's list -- Justin Simmons (65.9 percent), J.C. Jackson (65.5) and Eddie Jackson (62.8) had better success rates than McDougald last year. He also allowed a passer rating of just 54.4 when targeted and a tight-window percentage of 12. The 29-year-old has really started to come on the last two years with Seattle. McDougald had 70 tackles (52 solo), two interceptions, half a sack and a fumble recovery in 2019. He won't be an every-week starter in IDP leagues, but he might be worth a look when you need a bye-week replacement.

Chris Carson Has Tackle-Breaking Explosiveness

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson used his explosiveness to shed defenders and turn upfield in 2019. He had 50 15-plus mph runs and averaged 4.3 yards gained after a defender closed within one yard of him last season. It helped him gain 1,230 yards on the ground despite not playing a full season because of injuries. Carson is coming off a season-ending hip injury, but although he's expected to be ready for Week 1, his explosiveness as a runner is tempered by the fact that he continues to struggle with injuries. If the 25-year-old can remain on the field for a full season, he should easily be an RB1, but you're much better off taking him as an RB2 and keeping your fingers crossed.

Russell Wilson Continues To Shine Down The Field

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been one of the best deep passers in the NFL since 2016. He threw 32 TD passes on deep throws from 2016 to 2018 and had 1.5 yards of target separation on deep passes last season, which was the lowest in the NFL. Wilson makes a habit of extended plays outside the pocket and finding his receivers deep down the field, mainly Tyler Lockett. Seattle's wideouts had 32 deep receptions in 2019, also the most in the league. Wilson led all quarterbacks with nine DIMES (30-plus air yards and a tight window resulting in a completion). If the Seahawks let Wilson throw the ball more with Lockett and D.K. Metcalf at his disposal, he should be able to finish as a top-five fantasy QB in 2020.

Tyler Lockett Has A Knack For Making Tough Catches

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is ranked second by NFL.com's Nick Shook among the best pass-catchers of 2019. Lockett had a catch rate of 74.5 percent and an expected catch rate of 61.9 percent. His catch-rate difference was nearly equal to Michael Thomas, who was ranked No. 1 on the list. Lockett had more of an average cushion than Thomas, which aided in him having over four more air yards on average. Opponents rarely pressed Lockett at the line of scrimmage, however, because they were more fearful that he might beat them deep. Lockett owned the highest wide-open rate of the top 10 2019 pass-catchers at 22.7 percent. The 27-year-old can disappear at times and was hurt a bit by D.K. Metcalf's emergence in the second half, but he should remain a strong WR2 in 2020 with one of the best QBs in the game in Russell Wilson still throwing him passes.

L.J. Collier Motivated To Prove Doubters Wrong

Seattle Seahawks defensive end L.J. Collier, the team's first-round pick (29th overall) in 2019, is eager to prove himself after a disappointing rookie season. "I am chomping at the bit to get out there because it's one of those things where you didn't have the year everybody wanted you to get, so they just kind of shift you off to the side as if you can't play," Collier said. He missed all of the preseason and regular season opener after spraining his right ankle in training camp. And when he returned, Collier had only three tackles and no sacks on 142 defensive snaps in 11 games. Including the playoffs, he was a healthy scratch six times. Collier's ankle affected him after he returned, but he said the ankle is no longer an issue. He's in line for snaps as one of the team's five-technique defensive ends, and Seattle will need Collier and others to be much better for a team that had one of the worst pass rushes in the league last season.
