Matt Hasselbeck at MIN – Well, they aren’t going to be able to run it like last week. The Vikes will be game-planning for Justin Forsett and their dominant rush defense should be able to stuff him. If the Seahawks give Hasselbeck enough time to throw, he will be able to make plays against a vulnerable Vikes pass defense that has allowed seven passing touchdowns in their last four games. Personally, I wouldn’t let the pass rush deter you from starting Hasselbeck, the Seahawks are going to have to throw a ton to stay competitive in this one and he can be considered a QB1 this week.

Brett Favre vs. SEA – In case you were wondering, Favre is an every week start right now. He has found his go to guy in the form of Sidney Rice, who has also performed well enough to be activated on a weekly basis, no questions asked. Favre has a solid matchup against the Seahawks 22nd ranked pass defense, which has allowed nine passing touchdowns in their last four games. From the looks of it, both pass defenses in this game are very beatable, so it should be a fantasy friendly matchup for both passing attacks.
