Week 15: at Carolina Panthers
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Russell Wilson doesn't throw with much volume (just 126 attempts over the past 4 weeks), as the Seahawks have definitively moved back into a run-dominant approach whenever possible. But his efficiency remains top-notch, sitting fifth in adjusted yards per attempt and sixth in touchdown rate. Wilson hasn't topped 245 yards since Week 9, but typically sees enough high-leverage opportunity to make fantasy hay with touchdowns. His top target of late is explosive rookie DK Metcalf, who's notched 70+ yards in 4 of his last 5 games. Tyler Lockett has cooled off majorly through ankle and flu issues, but is rounding into health and always looms as a play-by-play threat. Josh Gordon was added a few weeks ago, and the Seahawks have made room for his sporadic talents (6 catches over 114 snaps). But this was a successful passing attack before Gordon came along, so there's little need to force him into a prominent role. This will likely remain a unit replete with role players; they'll answer the bell, but can't be counted on for much opportunity under ideal circumstances. The Carolina pass defense has dominated at times here in 2019, but currently sits in a noticeable rut. They've now allowed 300+ yards through the air to 3 of their last 4 opponents, and to 6 of their last nine. On Sunday, Matt Ryan picked them apart for the second time, routinely finding his receivers a step or two ahead down the field. The secondary isn't without talent: cornerbacks James Bradberry and Donte Jackson have been sticky in coverage, with free safety Tre Boston solid in support. Last week, for example, Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley simply won a few contested balls down the field. But this group is still beatable in the slots and up the seams, as the Falcons and Saints have shown over the past few weeks. Strong safety Eric Reid is a weekly liability in coverage - he was scorched last week by undrafted rookie Olamide Zaccheaus for a 93-yard touchdown - and the linebackers are often overmatched by top tight ends. This is a talented unit, but it's grown more and more beatable as the season has worn on. Inside receivers tend to boast a noticeable advantage, so Seattle's Tyler Lockett and Jacob Hollister may be leaned on heavily.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 14 vs LAR (6 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec)
Hollister continues to be a major part of the passing attack, but had trouble doing any real damage in this one. His woes started with a drop on third down that was hard to take, since the Rams doubled their lead to 14-3 on the next drive. Hollister was mainly used as a checkdown target, moving the ball effectively in that role. As a fantasy player, his target total is still encouraging, especially taking into account that it was a rough day for all involved in the Seahawks passing game.
2019 Week 13 vs MIN (8 / 6 / 44 / 0 rec)
Hollister made a beauty of a catch over his shoulder in tight coverage, showing some real athleticism, which seems to come with the growing confidence of a QB who is willing to target him in that situation in the first place. The rest of his catches were of the shorter variety, but Hollister continues to prove reliable, and was the first look on the occasional play as well.
2019 Week 12 vs PHI (4 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Hollister has really become an integral part of the passing game, though you wouldn't know it from his numbers in this game. He made a nice first down catch in the first quarter, catching the ball in stride. He should also have had a touchdown when he found himself completely open in the end zone, but somehow Russell Wilson overthrew him entirely on a very short throw. Hollister left the game with a sore foot, so monitor his health for next week.
2019 Week 10 vs SF (10 / 8 / 62 / 1 rec)
Hollister has become a secret weapon of sorts, for Russell Wilson. He proved ultra-dependable as he was leaned on quite heavily with the absence of not only every other tight end on the Seahawks roster, but also after lead WR Tyler Lockett left the game. After a first half to forget, Hollister came up big in the second, with a great catch in the end zone. He ran a delayed pattern, and as Wilson drew in the defense slightly, he then tossed the ball lightly over everyone - including Hollister, who was able to extend and bring in the one handed catch. He caught eight of his ten targets, many of them moving the chains. He was no simple checkdown option either, with several plays clearly called for him. Even if last week's two TD game was a fluke, the cat's out of the bag now, as Hollister has clearly ingrained himself into the passing game.
2019 Week 9 vs TB (6 / 4 / 37 / 2 rec)
Hollister was the preferred receiving TE, providing Wilson with a reliable underneath target. Despite the fact that he's rarely a threat to gain yards after the catch, Hollister was an integral part of the offense. He was also targeted on a deep throw in end zone, which drew a penalty. This set up his own TD two plays later, on a play action call at the goal line. His biggest play was on a seam route for a 22-yard catch, which brought him down at the 1-yard line. As good as all of that was, Hollister topped it in OT, catching the 10-yard winning score, on a crossing pattern, making a nice catch on the leading throw, and just making it to the goal line as he was being tackled.
2019 Week 7 vs BAL (6 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Despite just coming off of the practice squad last week, Hollister was the check down Tight End of choice for Russell Wilson. He didn't seem like a bit part of the game plan overall, but the Ravens secondary did a great job in coverage, forcing Wilson to make a lot of short throws.
Latest NewsSeahawks | Seattle's Week 15 injury report (Fri Dec 13, 05:56 PM) - Seattle Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and RB Rashaad Penny (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 13, and have been ruled out for Week 15 versus the Carolina Panthers. TE Luke Willson (hamstring) and CB Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) also did not participate in practice Friday but are listed as questionable. DE Jadeveon Clowney (core, illness) and DE Ziggy Ansah (neck) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. DT Al Woods (ankle) did not practice Friday but is expected to play. OT Duane Brown (knee, biceps) was limited Friday but no longer appears on the injury report. FB Nick Bellore (quad), TE Jacob Hollister (thigh), OG Mike Iupati (neck), WR Tyler Lockett (shin), OG Jordan Roos (back), LB Cody Barton (knee, ankle), WR Josh Gordon (knee) and OT George Fant (knee) logged a full practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report. Our View: If Willson returns it could take the edge off of Jacob Hollister's upside in Carolina. Clowney's illness is a bigger problem than his core muscle injury right now. If he can't go Sunday, the Seattle D/ST is a downgrade and Kyle Allen and the Panthers passing game is an upgrade.
