Big Thursday night game tonight — that kicks off the Fantasy clock. Although I think it will be a low scoring contest, the majority of fantasy points could be procured from the Seattle receivers.
Patrick Peterson figures to body up Rice, while slot man Baldwin is only a 60% player on offense. Tate is a dice-roll WR3, but is the Seahawks’ weekly favorite for targets and is capable of delivering a big game assuming he draws struggling RCB Jerraud Powers on most of Thursday’s snaps.
In any case here’s the overview for the route runners.
WR Doug Baldwin
6 catches, 70 yards
It can be a headache trying to predict which wideout is going to stand out each week and this week is no different. No wideout has surpassed 100 yards in a game this year and the unit has a collective six total TDs all season. I like Doug Baldwin to carry on that possession guy – moderate yardage contributor.
3 catches, 35 yards, 1 TD
Jermaine Kearse appears to be the man that Russell Wilson looks for inside the 20s – red zone looks will convert to a score this week. He isn’t targeted very often between the 20s however – marginal yardage and a score is a hopeful projection this week.
WR Sidney Rice
3 catches, 30 yards
Rice is bewilderment to my cerebral perception. Same for you? Has had just one big game this year and even though I think he gets a few looks this week, don’t anticipate a big game.
The newer, quicker guys seem to have fixed the eye of Wilson.
WR Golden Tate
5 catches, 50 yards, 1 TD
Golden Tate may well surface as the top receiver on the Hawks this week but saying that, you can’t expect a massive Fantasy-relevant game. Wilson spreads the ball out very well and things won’t change Thursday.
