Seattle Seahawks

Pick: Dolphins 24, Seahawks 6
Miami Dolphins
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBSeneca Wallace
180 pass yards, 2 INT
Wallace pulled a 90-yard TD pass to Koren Robinson out of thin air last week and then remembered he was Seneca Wallace, passing for only 79 yards the rest of the game in the loss to the Eagles. The Dolphins give up plenty of yards in the passing game (242.3 per game), but the Seahawks lack the weapons to take advantage. Don't bank on another big TD pass from Wallace this week.
RBMaurice Morris
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 25 rush yards
Morris is starting to get more involved (19 touches the past two games), but he isn't doing anything when he gets the ball (59 yards rushing). The Dolphins have one of the league's best run defenses, giving up only 89.6 yards game. Morris isn't a top talent so he won't get anything of note against them. Keep him benched.
RBJulius Jones
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 30 rush yards
Jones' role is diminishing in the offense. He's gotten only 23 rushing attempts the past three games, gaining only 92 yards in that span. This is a tough matchup for the Seattle running attack so don't gamble on Jones this week. Find another option at RB.
WRBobby Engram
3 rec, 35 yards
Engram continues to suffer without Matt Hasselbeck. He clearly isn't on the same page with Seneca Wallace and Wallace's lack of talent is killing him. If Hasselbeck ever returns, Engram's value will soar. But until then, you should keep him benched.
WRKoren Robinson
3 rec, 40 yards
Robinson turned back the clock last week with his 90-yard TD grab. Don't expect a repeat of that anytime soon, though. This isn't 2003 and Seneca Wallace isn't Matt Hasselbeck. Robinson is far too risky to start in any league.
TEJohn Carlson
3 rec, 30 yards
Here's the deal with Carlson: He'll catch 2-4 passes for 30-40 yards each week and score every third or fourth game. If that excites you, start him. Hopefully it doesn't and you'll keep him benched.
KOlindo Mare
2 FGs
Mare is having a fine season, having converted 13 of 14 FG attempts. Unfortunately, the Seahawks' offense is a disaster and that has lowered Mare's value considerably. This isn't the week to gamble that he comes up big so find another kicker to start in your league.
Defense
1 sack
The Seahawks' defense has been one of this season's biggest disappointments. They rank 27th in total defense and are allowing 26.3 points per game. The Dolphins are clicking offensively -- especially in the passing game with Chad Pennington -- and Seattle has been tough to trust on the road even when it was playing well. All signs point to the Dolphins rolling in this one so find another defense to start this week.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBChad Pennington
265 pass yards, 1 pass TD
Pennington didn't throw a TD pass last week, but he did pass for 281 yards in the win over Denver and continues to put up strong numbers for his fantasy owners. The Seahawks surrender 258 passing yards a game so Pennington is looking real good again this week. He's become a strong starter and the matchup this week is excellent so start him with extreme confidence.
RBRonnie Brown
3 rec, 25 rec yards, 85 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Brown was a big ho-hum last week against the Broncos but he did score and continues to deliver no worse than solid production for his fantasy owners. The Seahawks struggle to stop the run, giving up 115.5 yards a game, so Brown should do well again this week. He's the clear leader in the backfield with Ricky Williams in a secondary role, so look for Brown to get plenty of touches and have a big game this week.
RBRicky Williams
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 35 rush yards
Williams opened the season in a timeshare with Brown, but his role has diminished of late. He has only 17 rushing attempts in his last three games and has rushed for 16 yards in each of those games. It will be a little better on Sunday against the sorry Seahawks, but not enough to make Ricky a viable fantasy starter.
WRGreg Camarillo
7 rec, 80 yards
Camarillo is a reception machine. He continues to do his best Wes Welker imitation as he hauled in a career-high 11 passes against the Broncos last week. He's Pennington's top target in the passing game and his crisp route running will cause all sorts of problems for the Seahawks on Sunday. He's a strong WR3 in all formats and a very good WR2 in PPR leagues this week.
WRTed Ginn Jr.
4 rec, 60 yards
After a strong game in Week 8, Ginn came up small against the Broncos, catching only three passes for 38 yards. He has the talent to deliver a big game here and there but his inconsistency makes him very hard to trust. If you're looking for an upside play, Ginn could come through this week because the Seahawks give up plenty of yardage in the passing game. But remember there is a lot of risk involved with Ginn so adjust your lineup accordingly.
TEAnthony Fasano
3 rec, 30 yards, 1 TD
Fasano continues to share TE time with David Martin, lowering both of their fantasy values. Fasano caught a pair of passes last week and his Red Zone skills will come in handy in this matchup. He's risky, but there is some upside with Fasano this week if you need to gamble at TE.
TEDavid Martin
1 rec, 10 yards
Martin was held without a catch last week as he continues to share time with Fasano at TE. Of the two, Fasano has higher fantasy value, so don't reach for Martin this week despite the favorable matchup.
KDan Carpenter
3 PATs, 1 FG
With the Dolphins' offense picking up steam, Carpeneter has become a very viable fantasy starter. He's made 12 of 14 FG attempts this season and the Dolphins should have little trouble moving the ball this week against the Seahawks. If you need some bye-week help, Carpenter's a nice option this week.
Defense
3 sacks, 2 INT, 1 TD
The Dolphins' defensive weakness is stopping the pass. Fortunately for them, they face a Seattle team this week that can't throw the ball. Look for Miami to shut down Seattle's running game and force Seneca Wallace into some mistakes. This is a great sleeper defense this week.
