Start ’em & Sit ’em Week 5
Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 5 Predicctions
The Seattle Seahawks dropped close one last week – a 60 and a 58 yard field goal along with a faked field goal for a touchdown sunk this team.
The defense showed up big once again – no worries about this unit! So which Seahawk can you trust this week for your Fantasy squad?
Let`s take a look!
Seahawks Fantasy Forecast for Week 5
QB Russell Wilson
20 yards rushing – 150 yards passing, 1 TD
It’s been four games and this is about what he has averaged. It’s all that we can expect like it or not.
RB Marshawn Lynch
120 yards rushing, 1 TD 3 catches, 20 yards
No matter what – Marshawn Lynch is going to get his yards. He is getting 20 carries per game and is averaging 105 yards.
He is the offense for Seattle and has to be started for your Fantasy team against the league’s 25th ranked defense!
WR Sidney Rice
3 catches, 40 yards, 1 TD
Sidney Rice has been Seattle’s best receiver but that certainly isn’t saying much. He has been in the 30-50 yard range all season long – I’ll split it down the middle and say he gets 40 this week. I like him to catch Russell Wilson‘s only TD this week too.
He is a very, very borderline start this week except in the deepest of leagues.
WR Golden Tate
2 catches, 30 yards
Except for one game he hasn’t done anything. There is not a lot of passes to go around in Seattle – Golden Tate looks to be out in the cold!
WR Doug Baldwin
1 catch, 10 yards
Like I said – there is not enough passes to go around!
TE Zach Miller
3 catches, 30 yards
Zach Miller seems to be a good option for the rookie quarterback. He should get his looks and may exceed the projection. I still wouldn’t come close to starting him in Fantasy though.
PK Steven Hauschka
1 FG 2 XP
300 yards, 3 sacks, 1 interception, 1 fumble
The Seattle D isn’t quite as scary when they play on the road. Still, this unit is good enough to give Cam Newton and company fits.
They are start-able in any format for Fantasy.
If you picked the Seattle D before the season – congratulations.
