Campbell's play continues to disappoint. Despite facing a vulnerable Dallas secondary he has owned in the past, he played poorly last week, throwing for only 162 yards and a TD in the loss to the Cowboys. He has topped 210 yards only once in his last six games and has thrown only three TDs in that span. Seattle offers little in the way of pass defense, giving up 265.2 yards a game so this is a great matchup but Campbell has done little of late to suggest he'll exploit it. Consider him a modest play this week but nothing more.
What knee injury? After several days of speculation that said Portis probably wouldn't play last week, he ended up starting and looking like himself, rushing for 68 yards on 15 carries against the Cowboys. The matchup is a sweet one this week against a Settle run defense that gives up 115.5 yards a game so look for Portis to get 20-plus carries and have a big day.
Moss came up small last week, catching five passes for only 29 yards. With his QB playing poorly, Moss' upside is limited although this is certainly a matchup in his favor. View him as a WR3 this week with WR2 upside as the matchup could lend itself to a big day if Campbell shows anything.
It appears Randle El's run of having modest value in PPR leagues has come to an end. He caught only one pass last week and has only seven receptions in his last three games. Despite the promising matchup, there's too much downside with Randle El to gamble on this week so look elsewhere for a WR4.
Cooley was very active in the short passing game last week, catching seven passes for 47 yards in the loss to the Cowboys. With the Redskins' passing game showing little of late, his upside is limited but he's too talented not to put up good numbers against a weak Seattle defense. Start him as you normally would.
Suisham had another quiet game in Week 11, converting just one FG in the loss to the Cowboys. That was the third time in the last five games he's had one or no FGs in a game. The Seahawks give up 25.7 points per game so Suisham has an excellent chance to get back on track this week. He's a good option in larger leagues.
The Redskins don't offer much fantasy value but this could be a week to start them. Matt Hasselbeck looked very shaky in his return last week, throwing three INTs and the Seahawks turned the ball over once a fumble. Washington will bring pressure on Hasselbeck and 2-3 sacks are very probable. This defense isn't talented enough to generate huge fantasy numbers but a solid outing is very likely.
Hasselbeck was awful in his first game back from his back injury last week. He threw for only 170 yards and a TD while being picked off three times in the loss to Arizona. Having another week of practice will help, but the Redskins' pass defense gives up only 192.1 yards a game so this isn't the matchup to expect him to get well against. He's not worth starting but hopefully he'll be worth using in the final month.
One week after a strong outing against Miami, Jones looked like garbage against the Cardinals. He rushed for only 19 yards and got only one carry in the second half after fumbling early in the third quarter. Meanwhile, Maurice Morris and T.J. Duckett both scored touchdowns. It's clear you can't trust him -- epecially against Washington's run defense that allows only 84.3 yards a game. Keep him benched.
Morris saw plenty of work in the second half following Jones' early fumble and he scored on a 13-yard screen pass. With Jones back to playing poorly, Morris' role could grow in the running game but this isn't the week to start him against a stout Washington run defense. He's worth targeting for depth in larger leagues but keep him benched this week.
Branch played in only his second game of the season last week and looked decent, catching four passes for 54 yards. The key with Branch is staying healthy. If he can stay healthy, he'll be no worse than a solid WR3 in this offense because Hasselbeck will look for him and he's talented enough to deliver most weeks. He's a decent WR3 play this week as the Seahawks will struggle to mount much of an offense against the Redskins.
Engram was quiet last week despite getting his boy Hasselbeck back. He caught only two passes for 30 yards as Hasselbeck worked harder to get the ball to Deion Branch. Engram owners shouldn't despair because if Hasselbeck can stay healthy he will start finding Engram more and more. View Engram as only a WR4 this week, however, and expect the best to come in the weeks ahead.
Robinson remains the technical starter opposite Branch but in reality he's the No. 3 WR behind Branch and Engram. He caught two passes for only 11 yards last week and isn't a strong fantasy option even when the matchup is strong. When the matchup is bad -- as is the case this week -- he shouldn't be anywhere near your starting lineup.
Carlson had a decent day all things considered last week, catching three passes for 39 yards. Hasselbeck's timing was off and it may not be much better this week, so it's hard to envision Carlson coming through with a strong fantasy outing. He's only worth starting in very large leagues this week.
Mare was relegated to a pair of extra points last week. With Seattle's offense scuffling, he's a weak fantasy option. The matchup is a bad one for the Seahawks' offense this week so Mare isn't a good reach even in larger leagues.
The Seahawks' defense continues to disappoint, giving up 25.7 points per game. They do face a struggling Jason Campbell this week and are at home, but their defense lacks toughness and will struggle to stop Clinton Portis. Sometimes it helps to play at home and sometimes it doesn't matter. It won't matter for the Seahawks this week so stay away from this defense in your fantasy league.
