Pos.PlayerProjection
QBMatt Hasselbeck
205 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INT
Hasselbeck has thrown just 19 touchdown passes in 14 career games against the Rams, so this matchup may not be as enticing as it appears.
RBJustin Forsett
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 55 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Forsett ran for 130 yards and two scores against the Rams in Week 12 last year, and it appears the Seahawks might finally be settling into a running back rotation. Forsett is a nice sleeper option for Week 4.
RBLeon Washington
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 20 rush yards
Washington returned two kicks last week but did not see many carries. His primary value lies in the return game.
WRDeion Branch
5 rec, 55 yards
Branch has increased his yardage each week this season, but he has not much had success against the Rams in his career and remains an iffy weekly option.
WRMike Williams
3 rec, 35 yards
Williams has not been consistent enough to be a starting option in most leagues just yet.
WRGolden Tate
3 rec, 40 yards
Tate has seen a few looks recently, but he still needs to make a few more plays before you should consider using him.
TEJohn Carlson
4 rec, 45 yards, 1 TD
Carlson has been the Seahawks' most productive receiver up to this point, which makes him a valuable option at the tight end position. Expect another good outing from him.
KOlindo Mare
2 PATs, 1 FG
Mare is there if you need him, but there are plenty of other kickers who have the potential to put up bigger point totals.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Seahawks have been a top fantasy defense up to this point thanks to their seven turnovers, and they held the Rams to just 17 total points in two games a year ago. Give them a shot this week.

QBSam Bradford
190 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INT
Last week's win gave Bradford some needed confidence. He will face a Seahawks team this week that is 30th in the league against the pass, so he is a definite sleeper for Week 4.
RBSteven Jackson
4 rec, 40 rec yards, 65 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Jackson is tweeting that his groin strain is relatively mild. That's good news for Jackson owners, who will want their star running back as healthy as possible against a stout Seahawks run defense.
WRMark Clayton
5 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
Clayton's formed a great rapport with Bradford, and he certainly looks like the No. 1 option in the passing game going forward.
WRDanny Amendola
4 rec, 50 yards
Amendola had a team-high six receptions in Week 3 against Washington and should continue to make plays from the slot throughout the season.
TEDaniel Fells
3 rec, 40 yards
Bradford found Fells in the end zone last week, and the rookie signal caller may look Fells way more often as the season progresses.
KJosh Brown
2 PATs, 2 FGs
Brown connected on 3-of-4 attempts last week, and should see plenty of chances against his former team this week.
Defense
1 sack, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Rams defense has given up an average of 16.3 points a game this season and face a surprisingly robust Seahawks offense that has scored an average of 24.0 points a game.
