Rams vs Seahawks: Seahawks Worth Owning for Fantasy Football Playoffs
If your fantasy football league hasn’t started its playoffs yet, then it is surely around the corner.
The playoffs are simultaneously one of the most frustrating and one of the most competitive times of the year for any fantasy owner. The general rule of thumb is that teams are one and done—one loss in the playoffs will knock even the most dominant team out of competition for the number one spot.
As NFL teams begin to lock up their playoff positions some will rest their star players. Others will let them play only half the game. Either way, you have fantasy owners who are scrambling to fill important holes late in the year.
This is the time to turn to NFL teams whose playoff hopes are on the line. These are the teams who have everything to play for, and whose players will likely be a source of fantasy production in the waning weeks of the year.
The Seattle Seahawks are one of those teams.
Stars like Marshawn Lynch will be long gone from the free agent pool in your fantasy league, but there are still some gems hanging around.
Take, for example, the Seattle defense and/or special teams. The Seahawks have been a well-oiled machine on both special teams and defense, forcing plays that sometimes border on unbelievable. Thanks to the pathetic first half of the season, the Seattle defense is flying under the radar in many leagues right now.
If you’re in need of a wide receiver who will produce, consider checking out Golden Tate or Doug Baldwin. With Sidney Rice on injured reserve and Tarvaris Jackson slowly mending, these are the young men who will need to step up to keep Seattle’s passing game alive.
For leagues that count return yardage, it’s worth taking a look at Leon Washington. He is buried in the depth chart behind Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett, but he has averaged about 75 return yards per week in the last month. If you’ve watched the way he runs, you’ll know that it’s just a matter of time before he brings one back for a touchdown.
