San Francisco 49ers



Jimmy Garoppolo (Sit)

Jimmy Garoppolo has not has the best track record against Seattle as he has averaged 195 yards/game while posting 2 TDs and 3 Ints against the Seahawks as the Niners starting QB. He’s been a low-end QB2 this year but has only posted three games of 300 or more yards. Garoppolo also has not thrown more than 2 TDs in one game this year. He’s been a game manager and I think he’ll need to be more in this game. His track record says he won’t perform against the Seahawks. Look for Jimmy G to be a low-end QB2 at the very best in this game.


Running Backs

Elijah Mitchell (Start)

Elijah Mitchell is a must-start RB2 every week that he is healthy. In each of the four games that Mitchell has rushed for 100 yards, he also scored a TD. Going against a Seahawks team that has allowed the 10th most yards (1,158) and fifth-most TDs (9) to the RB position. While allowing the second-most fantasy points (24.2) to opposing running backs. It’s a juicy matchup, that should yield RB2 numbers with a chance for RB1 production.


Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Brandon Aiyuk (Start), Jauan Jennings (Flex), George Kittle (Start)


Deebo Samuel will most likely miss this game and that means it’s Brandon Aiyuk‘s time to shine. Aiyuk averaged 30 yards a reception last week against the Vikings. This is a game that he should be called upon a little more and could be a PPR WR1-2 this week. George Kittle took a blocking role last week but look for him to beast out this week against the Seahawks who are allowing the 10th most fantasy points (8.3) to opposing TEs. Jauan Jennings was targeted three times last week, the most of his young career. Jennings could be a low-end flex this week.


Seattle Seahawks



Russell Wilson (Start)

Russell Wilson got his deep ball working again in the Monday Night game against the Football Team. Wilson went 3/6 for 126 yards and a TD on passes 20 yards or more downfield. This week Wilson will be facing a similar defense with the 49ers, but will also have the home-field atmosphere of Lumen Field aka “the 12th Man”. Wilson has a history of beating up on the 49ers and he has a good opportunity in this one to continue his reign of terror. The 49ers’ secondary is incredibly exploitable allowing the sixth most 40 plus yard plays (7). Look for Russ to try and air it out against the 49ers. This makes him a viable QB2 in Superflex leagues, the reason he’s not a QB1 is that he’s only hit 300 plus yards once and 4 TDs once this season.


Running Backs

Alex Collins (Sit), DeeJay Dallas (Sit)

Alex Collins has been limited in this Seahawks offense only tallying 37 carries in the last four games. Now he’ll face one of the better run defenses in the game. The 49ers have allowed the seventh-fewest yards to opposing RBs (868). On their current three-game stretch the 49ers have allowed a total of 99 rushing yards and 1 TD to Dalvin Cook (39), James Robinson (29), and Darrell Henderson (31). This is a strong stable of running backs to hold under 100 yards combined. This is a game that I’ll not start Alex Collins, best case scenario is he is a desperation flex. DeeJay Dallas found his role against the Football Team as a receiving back, reeling in all five of his targets for 27 yards. Dallas is a stashable player, but not a playable one just yet.


Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Tyler Lockett (Start), DK Metcalf (Start), Freddie Swain (sit)

Tyler Lockett has averaged six targets a game since Russell Wilson returned in Week 10. In the past two weeks, Lockett has had seven passes for 211 yards. Look for Russ and Lockett to get some yardage in this game. I expect Lockett to be a WR2 with WR1 upside with a TD in this game. DK Metcalf has struggled the last three games with 20 targets, 8 receptions, and 70 yards. The reason I’m starting Metcalf in this game is he got 8 targets, 4 receptions, 65 yards, and a TD in the first game against the 49ers. Freddie Swain seems like an interesting guy to add to your roster, but he caught one of his two targets last week and it just happened to go for 32 yards and a TD. Keep Swain on your bench this week.
