Fantasy Football Advice
According to Rotoworld’s Hayden Winks, Jared Goff is a high-end QB2 with upside after his impressive performance against the Cardinals last week. Todd Gurley can be viewed as a strong RB2 option against an average Seahawks run defense. At WR, Robert Woods is a safe play and Cooper Kupp is an upside WR2, while Brandin Cooks is an upside WR4.
For the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson has QB1 overall potential. Against a tough Rams run defense, Chris Carson is best viewed as an RB1/2 and Rashaad Penny as a flex play. D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both WR3 plays this week. Leading the Seahawks in red-zone targets since Will Dissly’s injury, tight end Jacob Hollister is a recommended start this week.
