News: ESPN reported Seahawks defensive end Greg Scruggs suffered a torn ACL in April and will likely miss the entire season.
Analysis: The backup pass rusher had little chance to see more playing time this season, so the injury shouldn't impact Fantasy owners much.
News: Seahawks defensive lineman Greg Scruggs managed one tackle and a sack during Seattle's 30-20 win over Minnesota in Week 9. Scruggs, a rookie out of Louisville, has now taken down an opposing quarterback in two of his past three games.
Analysis: Scruggs has served as a reserve lineman for the Seahawks during his rookie campaign and his statistics certainly indicate that designation. He has just four tackles, but his two sacks are an encouraging sign. Still, he's not worth a roster spot in Fantasy IDP formats at this point.
News: The Seahawks made strides in improving its pass rush and creating depth on defense in the 2012 NFL Draft. They spent a first-round pick on West Virginia pass rush specialist Bruce Irvin and followed it up with Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner in Round 2. The rest of the haul includes Florida defensive tackle Jaye Howard, Idaho linebacker Korey Toomer, Northwestern State cornerback Jeremy Lane, Kentucky safety Winston Guy, N.C. State defensive tackle J.R. Sweezy and Louisville defensive tackle Greg Scruggs.
Analysis: Aside from Irvin, the only interesting Fantasy option worth a look is Wagner, who could develop into the team's middle linebacker sooner than later. He's worth a late pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a mid-to-late pick in rookie-only drafts. Everyone else besides him and Irvin will provide depth and probably won't find regular playing time and put up quality stats.
