Fantasy football forecast: Seattle Seahawks Week 6 NFL projections

Start ’em & Sit ’em Week 6

Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 6 Predictions

The Seattle Seahawks are back home this week after an impressive win at Carolina this week. That’s the good news. Now for the bad news – they play the New England Patriots – arguably the best team of the decade in the NFL.

In terms of Fantasy, the Hawks have a chance to put up some decent numbers against a pass defense that has been torched so far in 2012.

So which Seahawks is worthy of a start for your Fantasy squad this week – let’s take a look.

Seahawks Fantasy Forecast for Week 6

QB Russell Wilson

10 rushing yards, 200 passing yards, 1 TD

Wilson passed for his best yardage total of his young career last week – a whopping 221 yards. The Patriots have allowed three straight opponents at least 345 yards passing – not good!

While I don’t expect 300+ yards from Wilson this week 200+ yards is definitely possible with 1 maybe even two TDs.

Do I expect his best game as a pro? Yes.

Am I suggesting starting him in Fantasy? Absolutely not!

RB Marshawn Lynch

80 rushing yards, 1 TD, 3 catches, 20 yards

It is impossible not to start Marshawn this week in Fantasy but temper your expectations a tad – the Pats have been decent versus the run, mostly because lesser teams have had to abandon the run after getting down early.

I see the same happening here – the Hawks will fall behind and have to rely on their passing game to catch up. I still project decent numbers for Lynch, just not great ones this week.

WR Sidney Rice

4 catches, 65 yards

Rice is definitely Seattle’s best receiver and he’s coming off a 67 yard effort. While I expect him to lead the team in receiving again this week I can’t see him being Fantasy relevant just yet.

Zach Miller

New England has been poor against opposing Tight Ends this season

Matt Flynn would help his cause – don’t you think?

WR Golden Tate

3 catches, 50 yards

Tate has been the big play guy in the passing game – that’s not saying much! There just doesn’t seem to be enough passes to go around in Seattle which makes the pass catchers Fantasy irrelevant.

WR Doug Baldwin

2 catches, 25 yards

Finally returned to action last week and looked OK. But just like Golden Tate they are trying to divide a very small pie amongst the receivers.

Rice and Tate have more chemistry with Russell Wilson at the moment which leaves Baldwin out in the cold.

TE Zach Miller

4 catches, 40 yards 1 TD

New England has been poor against opposing Tight Ends this season – no TE has registered less than 50 yards against the Pats all season long. New England has also given up 4 TDs to TEs – I like Miller to be the fifth.

PK Steven Hauschka

1 FG 2 XP


320 yards, 2 sacks, 1 FF, 1 Int.

The Patriots have had some protection issues so far this year and Mr. Brady has been prone to the occasional mistake.

Seattle’s D knows that they have to be huge or the Hawks have no chance.

Look for them to show up on Sunday and have a decent, not outstanding game with the aid of the 12th man.
