Home team: Seattle Seahawks
The Tavaris Jackson ‘hook watch’ could officially start in this game as he has not inspired the offense at all. Under TJack, the team has yet to gain a lead on any opponent. Sidney Rice appears to be in the Seahawks staring lineup, but should not be in any fantasy lineups or rosters for that matter. Seahawks passing game will get shut out. Meanwhile, both Tim Hightower (96-yards) and Roy Helu (74-yards) made hay against the Arizona run defense. We’ll give Marshawn Lynch 45-yards and a score.
The Cardinals offense can generate explosive plays, but are not necessarily explosive. They have one full-time big play threat and that’s Larry Fitzgerald. The Seahawks got burned by Mike Wallace last week and we see Fitz being more successful, at least in terms of touchdowns. We give Fitzgerald 2 touchdowns. We give a sleeper score to Todd Heap and also see a shut out by the ground game for the Cards, who’s running game appears in flux with Beanie Wells pulling a hamstring late into the week.
