Ponder should play against the Seahawks on Sunday after suffering a separated shoulder last week, but this is a terrible matchup for him.
There's reason to be optimistic about Peterson in this matchup, beyond the fact that he's Peterson. Zac Stacy and Mike James both had huge games on the ground against the Seahawks recently.
Jennings cannot be considered in a matchup in Seattle.
Patterson caught a touchdown last week, but you can't possibly be thinking about him as a starter against the Seahawks.
Simpson will likely play despite a DWI arrest last week, but you shouldn't be thinking about him as a starter.
Carlson caught seven passes for 98 yards and a score last week, but it's hard to trust him against the Seahawks.
Walsh made both of his field-goal attempts last week, but 2013 is a far cry from his Pro Bowl season of 2012. He's just 13-for-15 on the season.
The Vikings struggled yet again last week and absolutely should not be considered with a tough matchup in Seattle.
Wilson should be able to take advantage of a Minnesota defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.
Lynch is on a tear of late and should keep that going against a Minnesota defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Harvin will likely make his 2013 debut against his old team on Sunday. I feel comfortable running him out there in fantasy leagues right off the bat. This is a great matchup.
Baldwin may see his targets fall with Percy Harvin likely returning, but he's still a solid play this week.
Tate had six catches for 101 yards and a score against the Falcons and is a solid play against a Minnesota defense allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game to receivers.
Miller was a no-show last week, and will once again be relegated to no more than a tertiary role with Percy Harvin likely returning this week.
Hauschka had a huge day last week, kicking four field goals, including one from 53 yards. He's now 22-for-23 on the season.
The Seahawks clamped down on the Falcons last week, but didn't do much in terms of fantasy scoring. Start them with confidence this week.
