Start ‘em & Sit ‘em Week 14 Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 14 predictions The Seahawks are back at home this week where they have been much better than on the road so far this season – scary if you are an Arizona Cardinals fan! Seattle is coming on – they occupy an NFC Wild Card spot and have been improving each and every week. It is past time to give Russell Wilson his due – I have projected him to have average games and he has proved me wrong week in and week out. He should be good this weekend against and unraveling Cardinals team along with his other position players. So which Seahawks are worthy of a start for your Fantasy squad this week – let’s take a look. Seahawks Fantasy Forecast for Week 14: QB Russell Wilson 30 yards rushing, 225 yards passing, 2 TDs Wilson had just 186 yards passing in the first meeting this season but he is twice the QB than he was in the first game of the season. He is getting it done with his arm and his legs! Finally Wilson has an easy matchup – expect him to produce this week with above average numbers. He has emerged as a fringe Fantasy start – no shame in using Mr. Wilson! Russell Wilson could have his breakout game against AZ this week (Photo: Seahawks.com) RB Marshawn Lynch 120 yards rushing, 1 TD, 1 catch 10 yards The last two running backs against Arizona have produced – 104 yards (Shonn Greene) and 139 yards (Steven Jackson) respectively. Needless to say, Lynch is head and shoulders above both of those two. Lynch is a top 5 Fantasy start this week and will almost certainly be over 100 yards with a score. He’s a no-brainer start for your Fantasy squad this week. WR Sidney Rice 4 catches, 70 yards, 1 TD Rice has scored in five of six games and I like that to continue this week. Although you can’t expect 100+ yards, 60-80 yards and a score is a very realistic projection. Rice is the best, most consistent pass catcher the Hawks have and he definitely has the trust of Russell Wilson. Rice is a fringe Fantasy start this week – worthy of WR3/4 status. WR Golden Tate 4 catches, 50 yards, 1 TD Tate has been a decent scoring threat but his yardage numbers are nothing to write home about. While I like him to score again this week, expect moderate yardage numbers again. As always, Tate is a nice player but too risky from a Fantasy perspective. TE Zach Miller 2 Catches, 25 yards With Anthony McCoy stealing some of Miller’s thunder it is hard to see him having a huge game. 2-3 catches for 20-30 yards is about all we can expect. PK Steven Hauschka 1 FG 3 XP D/ST 300 yards, 3 sacks, 2 Int., 1 FF The Seahawks have to be salivating at the prospect of facing an offense that is last in the NFL in scoring, has the second worst running game, and the 27th ranked passing game. Brandon Browner has been suspended which could be a big deal against anyone but the woeful Cardinals who will start John Skelton at Quarterback again. Seattle is a top 5 defensive unit this week – start them and enjoy the points! CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE SEAHAWKS PAGE IN OUR CLUBHOUSE SECTION!
