Arizona Cardinals
vs
Seattle Seahawks
U of Phoenix Stadium | Thursday, Oct. 17 | 05:25 PM EST (NFL)

Seattle Seahawks

    1. Russell Wilson
    2. Russell
      Wilson
      QB
    3. PASS YDS253
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS48
    7. RUSH TD0

    Wilson had a decent game against Tennessee given that he didn't have a touchdown. He threw for 257 yards and 8.3 YPA while running for an additional 66 yards.

    1. Marshawn Lynch
    2. Marshawn
      Lynch
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS73
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS23
    6. REC TD0

    Lynch scored twice last week, but will have his work cut out for him on Thursday night. The Cardinals have allowed just 3.5 yards per carry this year.

    1. Golden Tate
    2. Golden
      Tate
      WR
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD1

    Tate led the team with seven targets and is starting to emerge as Russell Wilson's No. 1 option. That could change when Percy Harvin returns. In the meantime, he's due for his second touchdown of the season come Thursday.

    1. Sidney Rice
    2. Sidney
      Rice
      WR
    3. REC YDS62
    4. REC TD0

    Rice had two catches for 35 yards last week. You wouldn't necessarily trust him in a good matchup, and this is a bad one. Stay away.

    1. Doug Baldwin
    2. Doug
      Baldwin
      WR
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD0

    Arizona's pass defense is far too strong to consider rolling with an also-ran like Baldwin.

    1. Steven Hauschka
    2. Steven
      Hauschka
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG3

    After two weeks of double-digit scoring, Hauschka made just two field goals last week, both after he passed concussion tests.

    1. Seattle Seahawks
    2. PTS ALLOWED9
    3. SACKS4
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    This is not the defense you want to play against on a short week. The Seahawks should be able to force Carson Palmer into a few mistakes.

Arizona Cardinals

    1. Carson Palmer
    2. Carson
      Palmer
      QB
    3. PASS YDS218
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Palmer bounced back for his fantasy owners last week, but this is a terrible matchup. Seattle has allowed only five passing TDs this season.

    1. Andre Ellington
    2. Andre
      Ellington
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS47
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS45
    6. REC TD0

    Ellington won't force Rashard Mendenhall out of the picture completely, but he has made this a true timeshare. Start him if you have to, but temper your expectatons this week.

    1. Rashard Mendenhall
    2. Rashard
      Mendenhall
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS32
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Mendenhall now shares the backfield with Andre Ellington. Given that and his lack of explosion, he's no more than a guy you consider as a flex from week to week. Hopefully not this week.

    1. Michael Floyd
    2. Michael
      Floyd
      WR
    3. REC YDS74
    4. REC TD0

    Floyd caught five of his six targets for 44 yards and a score against the 49ers. I'm looking elsewhere this week.

    1. Larry Fitzgerald
    2. Larry
      Fitzgerald
      WR
    3. REC YDS67
    4. REC TD0

    Fitz had a big game last week, catching six passes for 117 yards and a TD. I don't like this matchup for the Cardinals, but you have to get him in your lineup.

    1. Jay Feely
    2. Jay
      Feely
      K
    3. PAT0
    4. FG3

    Feely kicked but two extra points last week and has now had a pair of games with fewer than three points.

    1. Arizona Cardinals
    2. PTS ALLOWED23
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    The Cardinal's defense continues to lurk beneath the surface. Despite the projection, they could be a decent matchup play in this short week.
