Fantasy Player Projections

 
Seattle Seahawks
Edward Jones Dome | Sunday, December 14 | 1:00 p.m. EST (Fox)
Pick: Rams 20, Seahawks 17
St. Louis Rams
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBSeneca Wallace
200 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 30 rush yards
With Matt Hasselbeck likely out for the rest of the season, Wallace will start again this week at St. Louis. He threw for 212 yards and three TDs last week vs. New England and even added 47 yards rushing. It's unlikely that any fantasy playoff teams have him in their starting lineup this week, but if they do they can expect lesser numbers this week even against a Rams' pass defense that ranks 24th in the NFL.
RBMaurice Morris
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 80 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Morris got the bulk of the carries last week and it wouldn't be surprising if he carried the load this week, too. The Rams rank 29th against the run and Morris should be a big part of the offense in Week 15. It's unlikely that many fantasy teams have Morris on their starting rosters for the playoffs, but if they do he should produce this week.
RBJulius Jones
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 40 rush yards
Jones didn't get any carries last week vs. New England as Leonard Weaver got five for 32 yards and T.J. Duckett had four for 16 yards. On a faster track and against a weak run defense, Jones should get a few carries this week, but not enough to start in your fantasy playoffs.
WRDeion Branch
5 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Branch had his first big game of an injury-riddled season last week vs. New England as he caught four passes for 88 yards and two TDs. He scored on receptions of 14 and 4 yards and is a possible fantasy play this week. The Rams rank 24th vs. the pass and it looks like Wallace will look to Branch in the red zone.
WRBobby Engram
4 rec, 40 yards
Engram still hasn't scored a touchdown this year and isn't a recommended fantasy play for the playoffs. He was held to four catches for 27 yards last week vs. New England and hasn't had more than 65 yards receiving in a single game this year.
TEJohn Carlson
5 rec, 60 yards
Carlson scored his fourth touchdown of the season last week vs. New England as he caught a career-high eight passes for 69 yards and a TD. He scored on a 10-yard reception last week and now has 14 catches for 174 yards over the last two games. Expect solid production this week without a score.
KOlindo Mare
2 PATs, 1 FG
With only 81 points in 13 games, it's unlikely that any fantasy team is planning to use Mare in the playoffs.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 Fumble
The Seahawks have been a putrid fantasy defense in 2008 with only six interceptions in 13 games. Expect that trend to continue even against the turnover-prone Marc Bulger.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBMarc Bulger
200 pass yards, 2 pass TD
Bulger has been a major bust in 2008, and it's unlikely that any fantasy team competing in the playoffs have him at the helm. He threw for 228 yards and a TD in last week's loss at Arizona and he completed 18-of-34 passes for 184 yards and a TD in the Week 3 loss at Seattle. If he's ever going to have a big game this year it will be this week as the Seahawks rank 32nd vs. the pass, allowing over 264 yards per game.
RBSteven Jackson
5 rec, 40 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 80 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Jackson has been healthy enough to carry the ball 40 times the last two games, but he had a big fumble last week at Arizona that led to a TD and was held to just 64 yards on 19 carries. In the Week 3 loss at Seattle, he was held to 66 yards on 23 carries. Give him the start this week as he should have a big game against a weak Seahawks' defense.
WRTorry Holt
6 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Holt has been limited to two TD receptions this year and he hasn't had one in the last five games. He did finish with five catches for 61 yards last week at Arizona, but he was limited to just four catches for 37 yards in the Week 3 loss at Seattle. He's an iffy play once again this week, but it's possible he could find paydirt at home.
WRDonnie Avery
3 rec, 30 yards
Slowed by a hip injury, Avery has just three catches in his last three games and shouldn't be a fantasy play in Week 15.
WRDane Looker
3 rec, 40 yards
Looker has had 12 catches in the last three games, but he hasn't scored a TD during that time and isn't getting enough targets to be a fantasy play in Week 15.
TEJoe Klopfenstein
2 rec, 20 yards
Klopfenstein had two catches for 37 yards last week at Arizona, but the third-year pro has no value as we head into the fantasy playoffs.
KJosh Brown
2 PATs, 2 FGs
With only 85 points in 13 games thus far, Brown shouldn't be on many starting rosters as we head into the fantasy playoffs.
Defense
2 sacks, 1 Fumble
With only seven interceptions in 13 games, the Rams' defense has been a fantasy bust and shouldn't even be considered against a bad offense like the Seahawks.
