Seattle Seahawks
Monster Park | Sunday, October 26 | 4:15 p.m. EST (Fox)
Pick: 49ers 27, Seahawks 17
San Francisco 49ers
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBSeneca Wallace
120 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INT
With QB Matt Hasselbeck likely sidelined for one more week with his back injury, Wallace will start in his place again. He was dreadful last week at Tampa Bay, completing just 12 of 22 passes for 73 yards, one TD and an interception. WR Deion Branch could return this week, but even that won't help Wallace, who shouldn't be owned by any fantasy team.
RBMaurice Morris
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 60 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Morris split carries with Julius Jones last week, but the Seahawks couldn't sustain any drives to give them enough carries to help fantasy teams. Morris looked quick, but finished with 56 yards on just six carries, while adding 12 yards on two receptions. San Francisco ranks 23rd against the run, so if the Seahawks are going to have any success this week it will have to be on the ground.
RBJulius Jones
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 40 rush yards
Jones continues to lose carries to Morris and last week he was limited to 42 yards on seven carries. He's been limited to 20 carries the last two weeks and no longer is a recommended play for Week 8.
WRDeion Branch
3 rec, 30 yards
Branch could return this week from the heel injury that has sidelined him the last two games, but don't expect him to be at full speed. Remember, he got hurt in the first game back from his off-season knee surgery. With a backup QB leading the way, Branch isn't a desired play this week even if he does start.
WRKoren Robinson
2 rec, 25 yards
Robinson is the best option right now in the passing game, but his timing with Wallace and the other Seattle QBs is bad right now. He's been limited to two catches and 23 yards in each of his first two games with Seattle and won't be of much help this week, either.
WRBobby Engram
3 rec, 30 yards
Engram has started the last two games, but because of poor QB play he's been limited to one reception for 8 yards total. Wow. He's a risky fantasy play this week if Wallace is at the helm again.
TEJohn Carlson
3 rec, 15 yards, 1 TD
Carlson has value if the Seahawks can get in the red zone, but even that's not a given right now. Still, he has TD catches in each of the last two games and seems to get open in the red zone. With the dearth of talent at TE this year, Carlson isn't a bad play again this week.
KOlindo Mare
2 PATs, 1 FG
Mare missed his first FG of the season last week and finished with only four points. He has 44 points through six games.
Defense
2 sacks, 1 Fumble
This defense has been brutal for fantasy owners this year as it has just one interception and 14 sacks through six games.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBJ.T. O'Sullivan
220 pass yards, 2 pass TD
O'Sullivan will remain the starter for Week 8, but a change could be coming if he doesn't take better control of the ball. Last week he threw for 256 yards and one TD against the Giants, but he also threw two interceptions and lost one fumble. He now has 12 turnovers in the last four games. The good news is that the Seahawks rank 29th vs. the pass, so O'Sullivan should be able to exploit this banged up defense.
RBFrank Gore
4 rec, 30 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 100 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Last week's line was hard to believe for Gore: 11 carries for 11 yards. The Niners fell behind early and Mike Martz abandoned the run, although Gore did get 50 yards on three receptions. Look for a more balanced offensive attack this week as Gore should explain the Seahawks on the ground and through the air.
RBMichael Robinson
2 rec, 20 rec yards
Backup Robinson doesn't get many carries with Gore around, but he remains a good receiving option. Last week at New York, he had two catches for 26 yards.
WRIsaac Bruce
4 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
After collecting four TD passes in three games, Bruce hasn't scored the last two weeks. He was limited to three catches for 47 yards last week at New York and now has just five catches for 75 yards over the last two games. Expect better results this week, however, as the Seahawks have already given up 10 TD passes in six games.
WRJosh Morgan
3 rec, 40 yards
The rookie WR had his best game as a pro and even caught his first career TD reception. Morgan finished with five catches for 86 yards, including a 30-yard TD reception. He's not a worthy fantasy play just yet, but he should contribute again this week against a poor Seahawks' pass defense.
WRArnaz Battle
3 rec, 40 yards
Battle continues to start for the Niners, but he shouldn't start for your fantasy team. Battle had two catches for 42 yards last week and now has just six catches for 90 yards over the last three games. Stay clear of Battle this week.
TEVernon Davis
2 rec, 20 yards
One week after busting out with six catches for 75 yards, Davis was back to his old ways, catching just one pass for five yards. Don't let that Week 7 performance fool you as Davis is too risky to start this week or any week going forward.
KJoe Nedney
3 PATs, 2 FGs
Nedney has converted 15-of-17 FG attempts this year and has scored 60 points through seven games. He should be solid this week as well.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Niners have 13 sacks and 16 takeaways through seven games and should force a couple of turnovers this week with plenty of pressure on the unproven Wallace.
