Start ’em & Sit ’em Week 10
Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 10 Predictions
The Seahawks are at home for the second week in a row and that can only mean one thing: better than average numbers for all of their position players. Last week it seemed that everyone had a good game, and this week shouldn’t be much different.
The visiting Jets come in off a bye week but with the 29th ranked pass defense which should, in theory, mean a decent week for the QB and pass catchers. New York’s run defense has been gashed lately and it is nearly unfathomable for anyone to slow Marshawn Lynch at CenturyLink.
So which Seahawks are worthy of a start for your Fantasy squad this week? Let’s take a look!
Seahawks Fantasy Forecast for Week 10:
QB Russell Wilson
20 yards rushing, 200 yards passing, 1 TDs
Wilson is certainly a better QB at home than he is on the road, just like the rest of the team. His average is about 180 yards per game, but he is definitely above average on home turf.
While I like him to have a decent game, I think his yardage numbers will be limited again because of Beast Mode. He may be a bit risky in the world of Fantasy but he does have some upside – I am projecting 1 TD, but a second wouldn’t be a shock.
RB Marshawn Lynch
120 yards rushing, 1 TD, 2 catches, 20 yards
Lynch is riding a three game streak in which he has eclipsed 100 yards rushing. No reason to think the streak is snapped Sunday! He will certainly get the ball 25 times this week and produce based on those touches. The Jets gave up 169 yards to C.J. Spiller and 152 yards to Arian Foster, and Lynch is in that tier of running back.
Start Beast Mode with confidence!
WR Sidney Rice
5 catches, 70 yards
Rice has been consistent but that isn’t saying a whole lot. His yardage numbers have been improving but he certainly isn’t the guy that Russell Wilson looks to in order to get in the end zone. That honor belongs to…
WR Golden Tate
4 catches, 50 yards, 1 TD
Tate is feast or famine – scary if you are depending on him for your Fantasy squad.
While I like him to post moderate yardage numbers and to score this week, I am not touching him for my fantasy squad. More consistency has to be seen before he can be trusted.
TE Zach Miller
3 catches, 30 yards
Miller has been good for 20-30 yards per game and I think that trend continues this week.
He could be the recipient of Wilson’s second TD pass as well, but my lack of utmost trust in Miller is keeping me from projecting one. Miller is still far outside the realm of Fantasy stardom – look somewhere else.
PK Steven Hauschka
3 FG 2 XP
300 yards, 3 sacks, 2 Int. 1 FF
With the aid of the 12th man, I can see this being another solid week for the Seahawks defense.
They are an every week start in Fantasy.
This week they face a very fragile Jets offense that will likely implode when they hear the noise that they will inevitably be faced with.
