2009 Review

Uggh, and the spiral downward begins.  No one in their right mind would say that Hasselbeck was ever an elite quarterback, especially within the world of fantasy, but he was always considered a serviceable backup.  It was only three short years ago in 2007 that Matt put up 3,966 yards and 28 TDs en route to a 7th ranking on the QB fantasy list, but last year’s stats were likely closer to what we’ll see out of him in the future, if not worse.  Just over 3,000 yards and the same amount of INTs as TDs (17) didn’t quite cut it in terms of backup status in 2009 as he finished 21st in the league in fantasy points.


~  Ranked 21st in the league in QB fantasy points with 161.1 (basic scoring system)


~  Ranked 20th in the league with 17 passing touchdowns


~  Ranked 23rd in the league with a 75.1 QB Rating


~  Ranked 21st in the league with a 60.0% completion percentage


~  Ranked 19th in the league with 216.4 passing yards per game


~  Ranked 17th in the league with 293 completions


~  Ranked 17th in the league with 488 attempts


~  Ranked 19th in the league with 3,029 passing yards


~  Ranked 27th in the league in yards/attempt (6.21)


~  Ranked 12th in the league for the most sacks taken (32)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

Hasselbeck isn’t the type of QB who will lose games for his team very often, but he isn’t going to win them either.  The Seahawks put together five straight winning seasons in the middle of this past decade, but their success was more attributed to the prowess of RB Shaun Alexander than to Hasselbeck, as Matt was basically simply asked to not turn the ball over.  However, it’s a new era in Seattle, and what the team needs now is a QB who can make things happen instead of just treading water.  That person is not Matt Hasselbeck.  New head coach Pete Carroll is used to winning and won’t have any problem pulling the plug on Hasselbeck’s season (and basically his career) at the first sign of trouble, especially with the ‘Hawks big offseason acquisition, Charlie Whitehurst, waiting in the wings.  Hasselbeck should start the year under center, but don’t be surprised to see him manning the clipboard come mid-season.

Injury Report

Yellow

Matt missed a couple of games last year with a rib injury, but he seems to be okay now... except for the fact that he's 35 going on 55 and doesn't have an offensive line...

Pete Carroll reaches agreement with Seattle

According to numerous NFL sources, USC coach Pete Carroll has agreed in principal to become the next head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

Pyro's take: The Seahawks still need to interview a minority candidate to fulfill the stipulations of the Rooney Rule, but the deal looks all but done. Carroll also corralled his offensive coordinator from USC, Jeremy Bates, to run the Seattle offense. Bates was thought to be a candidate for the Chicago Bears OC because of his connection to Jay Cutler, but chose to follow his fellow USC coach instead.

Hasselbeck fine for Sunday's game

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) went through another full practice on Friday and will make his normal start against the Texans in Week 14.

Pyro's take: He's listed as probable on the injury report, but that's just because he's old. He could make for a good desperation QB2 play on your fantasy football team this week, but that's about it.

Hasselbeck fine, returns to full practice

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Thursday and said he is good to go for the game against the Texans this weekend.

Pyro's take: It takes an extra day for these old-timers to recover from games, so no worries about his availability this Sunday. He isn't a very good QB2 play on your fantasy football team however.

Hasselbeck probable for Sunday's game

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) is said to be "probable" to play in Week 14 against the Texans despite missing practice on Wednesday.

Pyro's take: Hasselbeck is an old man who likely just needed the day off to shake off his creaky bones. He'll play on Sunday, but still shouldn't be used as more than a desperation play on your fantasy football team.

Hasselbeck to be limited in practice this week

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck may miss some practice time this week due to the sore throwing shoulder he dinged up on Sunday. However, he should be fine to play next Sunday.

Pyro's take: Hasselbeck hasn't done much this year and is barely worth keeping around as a backup on your fantasy football team.

Hasselbeck limited on Wednesday

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs) was limited in practice on Wednesday, but coach Jim Mora said that he should start Sunday against the Cardinals.

Pyro's take: The Cardinals can be beat through the air, so Hasselbeck wouldn't be a bad QB2 play on your fantasy football team this week. Check back during the week to make sure he's completely healthy.

Hasselbeck probable for Week 9

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) practiced in full for a second day in a row and is listed as probable on the team's Week 9 injury report.

Pyro's take: Hasselbeck will be playing and has a grand match-up against a weak Lions secondary on Sunday, so if you are torn between him and someone else on your fantasy football team, you shouldn't have a problem starting Matt in the slightest.

Hasselbeck fine despite being knocked around Sunday

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) was sacked three times and knocked around a bunch versus the Cowboys, but said after the game that he feels fine.

Pyro's take: Both we and Hasselbeck knew the Cowboys were going to put pressure on him Sunday, so he likely wore extra padding during the game to counteract it. Matt ended up with a decent fantasy game with 249 yards and two TDs despite the Seahawks loss.

Hasselbeck to start on Sunday

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) practiced in full again on Friday and is set to start against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Pyro's take: He's listed as probable on the injury report and said he was still sore earlier this week, but he'll be in there Sunday. We'd probably stay away from playing him on your fantasy football team, however, as the Cowboys will look to put the hurt on him with a heavy pass rush this weekend.

Hasselbeck sits out practice Wednesday

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) was given the day off to rest his sore ribs on Wednesday. "We're going to give him today to rest and recover," coach Jim Mora said. "But it is not anything that will keep him from playing Sunday at full strength."

Pyro's take: Our guess is that with his blind-side tackle Walter Jones being put on injured reserve today, Hasselbeck is taking the day off to decide whether he wants to risk his life the rest of this year or not. Either way, he's a risky fantasy football play this week against Dallas.

LT Walter Jones put on injured reserve

Seahawks left tackle Walter Jones (knee) was put on injured reserve today, thus ending his 2009 NFL season. "We're going to shut him down," coach Jim Mora said. "We're going to let him heal up, have whatever procedures our medical staff feels is necessary and then reevaluate early next year."

Pyro's take: The guy who suffers the most here is Matt Hasselbeck. If he happened to be your backup QB on your fantasy football team, you might want to think about getting a backup for your backup at this point...

Hasselbeck pain-free going into Week 6

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) says that he's finally pain-free after suffering two broken ribs in Week 2 of the season.

Pyro's take: The 'Hawks are a much better team with Hasselbeck under center as they've put up 28 and 41 points and won both the games he's completed. Feel free to start him against a terrible Arizona pass D this week.

Hasselbeck to have full practice week

Seahawks coach Jim Mora stated that quarterback Matt Hasselbeck appeared to be just fine on Monday and will not be limited in practice this upcoming week.

Pyro's take: Hasselbeck will be facing the Cardinals in Week 6, a team that gives up an insane 303 passing yards per game (worst in the NFL). He seems fine and in tune with his receivers, so feel free to get him in your fantasy football lineup this week.

Hasselbeck expected to return on Sunday

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) practiced in full both Thursday and Friday and is expected to get the start against the Jaguars on Sunday. He is currently listed as probable on the team's injury report.

Pyro's take: The Jaguars have an awful pass defense, so Hasselbeck might actually be considered for your fantasy football lineup. He may be a bit rusty, however, so if you have another option, we'd go with him.

Hasselbeck's Week 5 status still unknown

Seahawks head coach Jim Mora said on Monday that quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) will practice on Wednesday, but that there are "no promises" he will play in Week 5.

Pyro's take: The Seahawks would really like to see their starting QB return as they have gone 0-2 without his services. Either way, keep him on your fantasy football bench until he gets his feet wet again.

Matt Hasselbeck inactive again on Sunday

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) has been declared inactive for the game against the Colts today. Seneca Wallace will again get the start in his place.

Pyro's take: Hasselbeck still isn't quite ready to go, so Wallace will have to do what he can for one more week. Wallace is not a good fantasy football play this Sunday against a tough Colts pass D.

Hasselbeck ruled out for Sunday's game

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) has officially been ruled out for the game against the Colts on Sunday. "The holdup quite simply with Matt is that he can't run yet (and) when he takes deep breaths there is pain," coach Jim Mora said.

Pyro's take: Not a shock at all. He's old, he can't breathe, he can't run, he's out. Leave the quickly aging vet at the end of your fantasy football bench for awhile.

Seahawks LT Walter Jones shut down with knee soreness

The Seattle Seahawks have shut down left tackle Walter Jones for the time being due to recurring pain and soreness in his surgically repaired left knee.

Pyro's take: This doesn't bode well for whichever QB starts, Hasselbeck or Wallace, and could end up affecting the running game for Julius Jones as well. In addition, their replacement left tackle, Sean Locklear, is out with a high ankle sprain.

Hasselbeck out another week?

Seahawks coach Jim Mora said on Wednesday that the team plans to play their Week 4 game against the Colts without quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.

Pyro's take: Seneca Wallace didn't do a bad job filling in against the Bears last week, but Hasselbeck still gives the 'Hawks the best chance to win. Keep the aging vet on your fantasy football bench for the time being.

Hasselbeck won't play, though still listed as doubtful

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) is officially listed as doubtful on the injury report, but Fox's Jay Glazer is reporting that Matt definitely will not play on Sunday.

Pyro's take: We weren't expecting him to play, so the report from Jay is not surprising in the least. With Seneca Wallace at the helm, the only fantasy viable player on the team for Sunday's match-up with the Bears would be tight end John Carlson.
