The Bs

Mike Davis

Davis has been everything Seattle needed him to be. He gets brought in a bunch to try to close out games and did just that against the Packers in week 11. Plus, he had a 101-yard, two touchdown game against the Cardinals in week four when Chris Carson had to miss the game.

Davis isn’t the flashiest of runners but fits great in the Seahawks’ system. And he does average 4.5 yards-per-carry in 2018 and that is very good.

I am giving away my last bit about Davis here, but Davis probably shouldn’t return to Seattle in 2019. Not because he isn’t good enough but simply because another team should be able to pay him more for how good he is.

Chances Davis returns to Seahawks: 25 percent

Sebastian Janikowski

Remember 2017, 12s? That is when Seattle had Blair Walsh and every attempted kick was seemingly a nightmare. And while Janikowski doesn’t have the leg he did early in his career, he is still good enough to make kicks beyond 50 yards. The kicker is three for five on those types of kicks this year.

He also made the game-winner against the Panthers in week 12. Last year I might have had to close my eyes as I simply couldn’t watch what Walsh might do. Against Carolina, I had absolute faith Seabass was going to make the field goal with no issues.

Chances Janikowski returns to Seahawks: 60 percent

J.R. Sweezy

Sweezy is a good reason you can kind of discount Pro Football Focus’s grades for blocking. PFF is a great site but has always struggled with offensive lines. According to PFF, Sweezy is graded as the 74th best guard in the NFL in 2018.

But we all know how much better the Seahawks are this season with Sweezy playing guard instead of Ethan Pocic. There are several reasons Seattle leads the NFL in rushing. Sweezy is one of them.

Chances Sweezy returns (again) to the Seahawks: 75 percent
