Seattle Seahawks
vs
San Francisco 49ers
CenturyLink Field | Sunday, Sep. 15 | 08:30 PM EST (NBC)

San Francisco 49ers

    1. Colin Kaepernick
    2. Colin
      Kaepernick
      QB
    3. PASS YDS283
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS49
    7. RUSH TD0

    Kaepernick torched the Packers yet again, this time with his arm, throwing for 412 yards and three touchdowns. He faces a much tougher matchup this week, but he'll still come up with a useful day.

    1. Frank Gore
    2. Frank
      Gore
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS46
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS17
    6. REC TD0

    After struggling against the Packers, Gore won't find it any easier in Seattle. He'll fail to get to 50 yards for the second straight week.

    1. Kendall Hunter
    2. Kendall
      Hunter
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS16
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS8
    6. REC TD0

    Hunter simply doesn't get enough touches to make a fantasy impact. He's worth owning in case Frank Gore gets hurt.

    1. Anquan Boldin
    2. Anquan
      Boldin
      WR
    3. REC YDS81
    4. REC TD1

    Wow. There's really not much more to say about Boldin's game against the Packers. Given the combination of Colin Kaepernick and Jim Harbaugh, Boldin could surprisingly be in for the best year of his career.

    1. Quinton Patton
    2. Quinton
      Patton
      WR
    3. REC YDS45
    4. REC TD0

    Patton has a nice bit of sleeper buzz going because of the potency of the San Francisco offense. He won't do much against Seattle, though.

    1. Vernon Davis
    2. Vernon
      Davis
      TE
    3. REC YDS71
    4. REC TD1

    Davis had a huge day against the Packers, catching six passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns. He lined up as a tight end and wide receiver, and the 49ers really did a great job getting him in favorable matchups. He's going to be a beast all year long.

    1. Phil Dawson
    2. Phil
      Dawson
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG3

    Dawson made two of this three field goal attempts against the Packers. He'll make all three this week.

    1. San Francisco 49ers
    2. PTS ALLOWED24
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    The 49ers didn't really give their owners much to celebrate against the Packers, but that's what generally happens in today's offensively driven NFL. They won't put up big numbers in the hostile environment in Seattle, either.

Seattle Seahawks

    1. Russell Wilson
    2. Russell
      Wilson
      QB
    3. PASS YDS320
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS38
    7. RUSH TD0

    Wilson had one of the quietest 320-yard days I can remember. It wasn't padded with garbage-time numbers, either, he picked up 9.7 YPA. He'll do well with this week's tough assignment.

    1. Marshawn Lynch
    2. Marshawn
      Lynch
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS58
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS11
    6. REC TD0

    Lynch had a brutal day against the underrated Carolina defense, running for 43 yards on 17 carries. It doesn't get any easier this week.

    1. Golden Tate
    2. Golden
      Tate
      WR
    3. REC YDS101
    4. REC TD1

    Tate caught four of the seven passes thrown his way by Russell Wilson, going for 51 yards. He's still the Seahawks receiver to own until Percy Harvin returns.

    1. Sidney Rice
    2. Sidney
      Rice
      WR
    3. REC YDS64
    4. REC TD1

    Rice had just three targets last week, ceding most of the attention to Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. It will likely remain a fluid situation all year long.

    1. Doug Baldwin
    2. Doug
      Baldwin
      WR
    3. REC YDS67
    4. REC TD0

    Baldwin led the Seahawks with eight targets, seven catches and 91 yards. I'd still take Golden Tate and Sidney Rice over him, though.

    1. Zach Miller
    2. Zach
      Miller
      TE
    3. REC YDS25
    4. REC TD0

    Miller had three catches for 42 yards, but you don't want to start him this week. The 49ers linebackers present him with a challenging matchup.

    1. Steven Hauschka
    2. Steven
      Hauschka
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG1

    Hauschka banged through two field goal attempts last week, and I think he'll end the year inside the top 10 at the position.

    1. Seattle Seahawks
    2. PTS ALLOWED23
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD1

    The Seahawks absolutely shut down Cam Newton, and now they'll get their first chance at Colin Kaepnernick this season. They won't have quite the same success, but it'll be enough to come away with a win.
