Seattle Seahawks

The grades are in. Pro Football Focus has released the marks for every Seattle Seahawks player from the team's Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Most of the grades are unsurprising, especially when you get to some of the poor tackling grades given out by PFF.

Here's the rundown.

Best offensive grades:

WR Tyler Lockett - 79

Lockett posted a career high 11 receptions for 154 yards, and he scored his second touchdown of the season.

G D.J. Fluker - 76.7

Fluker bounced back nicely after allowing two sacks in Week 2. His ankle appeared to be healthy which is also vital for Seattle's offensive line.

QB Russell Wilson - 76.1

Wilson put up monster numbers against the Saints with 406 passing yards and two touchdowns. He added 51 rushing yards and two scores on the ground. A ton of that production game during garbage time when the game was out of reach, including a touchdown to Will Dissly on the final play of the game.

C Justin Britt - 73.4

Britt was another standout on Seattle's offensive line that didn't allow a sack on Sunday.

T George Fant - 71.4

Fant saw an increased role, filling in for Duane Brown at left tackle following Brown's arm injury. Fant played 35 snaps total, 23 at left tackle.

Worst offensive grades:

RB Chris Carson - 38.5

Carson lost his third fumble of the season and ended the game with 53 yards on 15 carries.

TE Nick Vannett - 50.9

Vannett caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards.

WR Malik Turner - 54.9

Turner caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards. He was targeted on a 4th-and-1 pass deep downfield but the ball sailed over his head.


RB C.J. Prosise - 56.8

Prosise out-snapped Carson 46-37. He gained just five yards on four carries but added 38 yards on five receptions. It will be interesting to see how reps are split when Rashaad Penny returns from a hamstring injury.

WR Jaron Brown - 57.0

Brown caught 3-of-6 targets for 30 yards. They were his first targets, receptions and receiving yards of the season.

Best defensive grades:

DT Poona Ford - 77.7

Ford had one tackle in 29 snaps. He graded positively as pass rusher (67.5) and in run defense (67.0).

LB K.J. Wright - 75.3

Wright was given a standout 84.2 tackling grade while racking up 13 total tackles.

DT Quinton Jefferson - 74.4

Jefferson accounted for Seattle's two lone quarterback hits against the Saints. He also earned a run defense grade of 70.0.

CB Jamar Taylor - 70.6

Taylor earned a tackling grade of 81.4 and a coverage grade of 70.7.

CB Shaquill Griffin - 68.6

Griffin was given a 75.9 coverage grade.

Worst defensive grades:

CB Tre Flowers - 41.0

Flowers was given a coverage grade of 35.4.

DT Al Woods - 44.5

A tackling grade of 28.2 plummeted Woods' overall grade. Woods also had a costly penalty on a Saints field-goal attempt as he lined up over the longsnapper.

S Delano Hill - 51.9

Hill was given a tackling grade of just 30.0.

LB Mychal Kendricks - 55.0

Kendricks was given a tackling grade of 26.4. None of these poor tackling grades are surprising given how many Seattle missed on Sunday. Alvin Kamara broke 18 tackles all by himself.

DE Branden Jackson - 58.2

Jackson had two tackles in 21 snaps.
