Seahawks Fantasy Start + Sit vs. Saints
The Seattle Seahawks emerge from their bye a little worse for wear after the suspension of two of their three Stud cornerbacks to take on a team that can leapfrog them for first overall in the NFC.
The Saints, with their high powered offense and improving defense come to town Monday night for what has all the makings of a classic.
So who should we trust in the world of Fantasy this week?
Let’s take a look.
QB Russell Wilson
25 rushing yards, 250 yards passing, 2 TDs
Has thrown for multiple TDs in each of the last four weeks and should do so again. His arsenal is complete with Percy Harvin back in the fold which makes him even more dangerous than before. Russell’s legs haven’t been producing huge numbers of late but his arm has more than made up for it.
Trust Russell Wilson this week to have a good week in a high scoring affair Monday night. He may not be an elite option but he is certainly startable.
RB Marshawn Lynch
80 yards rushing, 2 TDs, 2 catches 25 yards
Has 11 TDs already this year and is getting those short plunges to pad his Fantasy stats.
He will be a big part of the game plan this week and should be good for a couple scores again. Lynch is money at home – start with confidence!
WR Doug Baldwin
5 catches, 70 yards, 1 TD
Has three TDs on the year – all at CenturyLink. Doug Baldwin is the possession guy and will be heavily utilized this week. Tate is money on the road – Baldwin is the man at home.
WR Percy Harvin
3 catches, 70 yards
The limitations will be off Harvin this week but my thought is that he takes a game or two to get up to Full, Full speed. Harvin will get some touches but I am projecting conservative numbers with upside until I know how he is going to be used.
WR Golden Tate
3 catches 50 yards
Golden Tate seems to be the guy Wilson goes to when the Hawks are trailing – usually on the road. There are lots of toys for Russell to play with – my thought is Tate is the one that gets lost in the shuffle.
TE Zach Miller
3 caches, 30 yards
Has been better at home but as always, is good for 25-40 yards. Not much Fantasy relevance here!
24 points, 375 yards, 3 sacks, 2 INT.
The Hawks have yet to let a QB light them up this year – none has passed for more that 2 TDs. No opposing QB has passed for more than 235 yards at CenturyLink either. But this is Drew Brees we are talking about and he gets to go against a unit that will be without Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond.
Expect a good but not great game for the Seattle defense this week – Drew Brees has been good for a couple of interceptions in recent games.
