News: Seahawks defensive back Byron Maxwell left Week 2 against the Cowboys in the first half due to a hamstring injury and did not return.
Analysis: Maxwell is mainly a special teams player for the Seahawks and holds minimal Fantasy value at this point. Continue to ignore him in all IDP formats, healthy or not.
News: Head coach Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times that CB Byron Maxwell will not play in Week 2 against the Steelers. Maxwell left during Week 1 against the 49ers with an ankle injury.
Analysis: Maxwell is a rookie, who only saw snaps in a handful of nickel packages on Monday. He isn't worth owing in the majority of IDP formats, even when healthy at this point in the season.
News: Seattle DB Byron Maxwell injured an ankle injury in Week 1 against San Francisco. The Seahawks would lose the game, 33-17.
Analysis: Maxwell, a rookie, is a backup for the Seahawks so he isn't worth much in IDP leagues. Fantasy owners should continue to ignore him.
News: The Seahawks added much depth to their defense via the 2011 draft when they picked Mississippi State LB K.J. Wright (Round 4), Stanford CB Richard Sherman (Round 5), Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree (Round 5), Clemson CB Byron Maxwell (Round 6), LSU DE Lazarius Levingston (Round 7) and USC LB Malcolm Smith (Round 7).
Analysis: Of these players, Wright and Legree have the best shot at playing sooner than later, though both are behind first-round picks on the depth chart. Both Wright and Legree are worth late-round fliers in the deepest of dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts.
