Start ‘em & Sit ‘em Week 2

The Seattle Seahawks had a chance last week but just couldn’t deliver. This week they play host to the Dallas Cowboys, a team that made the defending Super Bowl champions look ordinary last week.

So who should we trust in Fantasy this week?

Which Seahawk is worthy of a start on your Fantasy squad? Let`s take a look and LET’S GO SEAHAWKS!

Seahawks Fantasy Forecast + Stats QB Russell Wilson

40 rush yards – 215 pass yards, 1 TD

Russell Wilson was shaky in his debut but he earned the respect of his coaches and his team.

He faces a tough pass rush and an emerging secondary this week but he should improve on his numbers from last week in his first start in front of an amped Seattle crowd.

He’s still too risky a Fantasy start at this point but Wilson showed that he is definitely an NFL starter.

RB Marshawn Lynch

100 rush yards, 1 TD, 2 catches, 10 yards

Marshawn Lynch shook off back spasms last week and provided decent numbers against a good Arizona defense. At home, Lynch is a different type of beast. He warrants a start this week for Fantasy purposes – with a full week of practice he will produce like a #1 Draft Pick this week!

Don’t forget he ran for 135 yards and a score last year versus Dallas in Seattle.

WR Sidney Rice

6 catches 75 yards, 1 TD

Sidney Rice should get a decent matchupagainst a rookie this week. Morris Claiborne looked OK against Victor Cruz last week but if Cruz held onto the ball he would have had a monster game. Rice is healthy and looking like the pro he is – I like him to catch Wilson’s only TD pass this week and post decent yardage numbers.

Edwards will likely line up against the Cowboys high priced signing Brandon Carr this week

WR Braylon Edwards

4 catches 50 yards

Edwards will likely line up against Brandon Carr this week but based on his nine targets last week, Edwards is definitely on Russell Wilson’s radar. Although Edwards looks reborn we can’t look past the fact that Carr held Hakeem Nicks in check last week.

WR Doug Baldwin

2 catches -20 yards

He didn’t factor into the game plan last week and will likely take a back seat once again.

TE Zach Miller

3 catches, 20 yards

Miller caught three balls for 40 yards last week and will likely do similar this week. He is still not worthy of a Fantasy start but he may emerge on the radar with another decent performance.

PK Steven Hauschka

2 FG 2 XP


1 sack, 1 interception

The Seattle defense was largely disappointing last week – unable to garner many Fantasy points against a sketchy Arizona team. I need to see more out of their pass rush before I’d plug them back in.

Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Kevin Ogletree are coming to town. I expect a rough week defensively.

May be best to bench the Seattle D this week!
