Invesco Field | Sunday, September 19 | 4:05 p.m. EST (FOX)
Pick: Broncos 20, Seahawks 17
200 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 5 rush yardsHe'll face a tough Broncos secondary, but the pass rush isn't too scary even for the Seahawks' offensive line. You can start him if you need to.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 45 rush yardsForsett is the starter ostensibly, but Leon Washington will see his share of touches, especially when the Seahawks need to pass.
4 rec, 40 rec yards, 25 rush yardsThough Washington was little-used in Week 1, head coach Pete Carroll still hasn't said who will get more carries and Washington will likely get most of the third-down work, bumping his value in PPR leagues.
5 rec, 65 yards, 1 TDWilliams finds himself back in an NFL lineup after a two-year hiatus. He looks like the team's best red zone option, but it's tough to imagine he'll set the world on fire against the Broncos.
3 rec, 30 yardsWith Houshmandzadeh gone, Branch becomes the Seahawks' top option, and should get the first read on third downs.
2 rec, 20 yardsButler will start in the slot, keeping the spot warm until Golden Tate is ready to see the field. He isn't a great fantasy option, however, especially going up against a solid secodary like the Broncos.
4 rec, 35 yards, 1 TDCarlson is projected to have a big season with the Seahawks because, really, who else is there? With Denver's cornerbacks swallowing up receivers, Carlson could have a nice day.
2 PATs, 1 FGMare has hit 90.5 percent of his kicks in his last two season with Seattle, but the offense provides so few field goal opportunities that he isn't a reliable starting option from week to week.
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleThe Broncos won't scare anybody on offense, then again the Seahawks were pretty bad on defense last season. There's no real reason to start the Seahawks on any given week unless you believe the Week 1 performance against the 49ers was not a fluke.
255 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 5 rush yards, 1 INTAgainst one of the league's most porous secondaries from last season, Orton is assured at least decent numbers. He's safe to roll with if he's your best option.
6 rec, 50 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TDMoreno is the clear-cut starter in Denver and the Broncos' running game shouldn't have too much trouble against the Seahawks.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 30 rush yardsBuckhalter sits No. 2 on the depth chart, though he'll get enough carries to hamper Knowshon Moreno's fantasy value. He should probably be left on the bench most weeks, especially with Laurence Maroney coming in via trade from the Pats.
6 rec, 75 yards, 1 TDGaffney has deloped a nice rapport with Kyle Orton throughout the preseason, but the fact that he could be the team's No. 1 doesn't speak well of the receiving corps as a whole.
5 rec, 70 yardsOne of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football last season, Royal didn't show much in preseason play. He'll get targets against the Seahawks, but Jabar Gaffney has to be considered the de facto No. 1.
3 rec, 25 yardsFoot issues have slowed down his progress, but coaches love Thomas' potential once he's healthy and playing at full speed.
3 rec, 30 yardsGraham will see a larger role as a blocker than as a pass catcher, limiting his value outside of an occassional touchdown.
2 PATs, 2 FGsPrater was one of the better fantasy kickers in the league last season. His 122 points were tied for seventh-best, and against the Seahawks his offense should give him plenty of opportunities.
4 sacks, 1 INTWithout Elvis Dumervil, the Broncos don't strike fear into the hearts of quarterbacks anymore. Their secondary could be a good source of picks, especially if the Seahawks have to throw to catch up, but the Broncos
