Week 14: vs Minnesota Vikings

All TE vs MIN

FBG says: Bad matchup. Russell Wilson continues to be one of the most efficient quarterbacks in football as he maintains the highest touchdown to pass attempt ratio among starters by a wide margin while ranking fourth in passing touchdowns. Wilson's efficiency was on full display last week as three of his six completion before halftime were for touchdowns, finishing with his first four-touchdown game of the season despite a season-low 11 completions. This is undoubtedly a run-first offense, but Wilson has shown that he can take over a game at any time. Tyler Lockett has been the beneficiary of nearly a third of Wilson's touchdowns as he nabbed yet another one last week on his only reception. It is easy to label Lockett as a boom or bust option as he certainly is reliant on big plays, but Lockett has honestly seen that big play over half of his games this season, so the "busts" have been few and far between. Doug Baldwin, however, has not been as productive as he continues to disappoint compared to prior seasons. Baldwin did find the end zone last week and had at least five receptions in three straight games leading into last week, but he has eclipsed 80 yards just once with only two touchdowns to show for his season which is far below Baldwin's historical standards.. The Vikings defense had a down week by their standards against the Patriots in Week 13, allowing Tom Brady to pass for over 300 yards and a touchdown while they failed to sack him a single time--just the second time this season the Vikings have not recorded a sack. Limiting Brady and a healthy Patriots offense in Foxboro to just one touchdown through the air and 24 total points is still a feat for any defense to be proud of. The Vikings remain a top-tier unit capable of disrupting opposing offensive lines and locking down receivers. It has been five games since this secondary has allowed an opposing wide receiver to cross the 80-yard mark while last week was the first time a quarterback has passed for over 250 yards against them since Week 5. Xavier Rhodes should match his talents with Tyler Lockett in shadow coverage which should lower the probability for Lockett's token big play of the week. Cornerback Trae Waynes suffered his second concussion of the year last week and will be at risk of missing this week's game. Rookie Holton Hill stepped in and played well in Waynes' relief so the Vikings should be fine if Waynes' were to miss this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 11 vs GB (1 / 1 / 15 / 1 rec)

Dickson scored today, the winning touchdown no less, as he found a nice seam over the middle for the red zone catch. However, relying on the Seahawks TE position in fantasy football is a gamble of epic proportions. On one hand, the TE has a TD in each of the last four games. On the other, Vannett and Dickson have two each. Dickson is averaging barely over a single target per game; Vannett had an outlier of eight targets in one game, but otherwise is averaging barely over two targets per game. Both Dickson and Vannett continue to show reliable route running and hands, to go with their shared, low volume, red zone dependent role.

2018 Week 8 vs DET (2 / 2 / 54 / 1 rec)

The Tight End position will never be bountiful for the current Seahawks (just ask Jimmy Graham), but Russell Wilson spreads the ball out enough that Dickson could become relevant, especially as an end zone target. He caught one of two TD catches by tight ends in this game (the other, to Nick Vannett, was actually called back on a penalty), so this could be a situation in which neither can be relied upon on a weekly basis. But, having missed the first six games of the season to injury, this marked a pretty good start for Dickson, with perhaps a hint of things to come.
