Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
It looks like John Carlson has clean bill of health after his nasty concussion in the playoffs last January, but he’s not a candidate to be drafted in summer drafts. Even though the Seahawks won their division (7-9 record) the offense is undergoing a major rebuild around Carlson and that hasn’t helped his production on the field. I still believe Carlson can be a starter in fantasy football, as he has the talent to produce but he will have to wait until the offense grows up around him.
The signing of Zach Miller is a death blow to John Carlson’s career with the Seahawks and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s on the move before the season begins. Carlson is slated to be a free agent after this season and will probably have to wait till next year before we see if he can be a fantasy relevant player.

If the Seahawks had a half way decent offensive line, I might consider ranking Carlson a top five fantasy tight end this year. With the addition of blocking tight end Chris Baker, Carlson will run more routes instead of help the line out in pass protection.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: John Carlson didn’t put together a strong full season in 2009, but he did get on a hot touchdown streak at the end of the year. In the last four games of the season, Carlson scored a touchdown in each game and that made him a fantasy darling for certain fantasy owners he helped win Championships.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: With a patch work offensive line Carlson was forced to spend more time blocking last season than the team would have liked. Carlson is clearly a gifted pass catcher and that is why he was an early second round pick a few seasons ago.
With the addition of blocking tight end Chris Baker, Carlson is set up to run pass patterns weekly. This will make him the potential top pass target in the offense as T.J. Houshmandzadeh continues to have health problems and is getting closer to his mid thirty’s.
My biggest concern for Carlson is can Charlie Whitehurst keep him productive if and when Matt Hasselbeck goes down with injury? If the answer is yes, then Carlson could very well have a top five scoring year for fantasy tight ends. If the answer is no, Carlson may still be a top ten fantasy threat, but he may not live up to the expectations his talent suggests he can play at.
