Week 15: vs Los Angeles Rams
All TE vs LAR
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Seahawks had a tough time with Jaguars defense last week, but nonetheless, Russell Wilson still stacked up numbers as he finished as the fifth best fantasy quarterback of the week with his second straight three-touchdown game. Wilson did, however, struggle with the tight coverage by Jacksonville as he tossed three interceptions for the first time this season--all three going to Jaguars cornerbacks. Doug Baldwin has seen his usage drop in recent weeks with three or fewer receptions in three of his last five games, but he is still amassing decent yardage totals and finding the end zone on a relatively regular basis. Both Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett have been unpredictable, boom or bust plays for the entire season. Jimmy Graham had been the most consistent fantasy performer on the team outside of Russell Wilson, but his streak ended sharply last week as he laid a fantasy egg for the first time since 2014 as Graham was held with no reception on two targets while playing his usual range of snaps (67%). Graham had hauled in at least three receptions in each game and scored nine touchdowns in his last eight games leading up to last week, with the first of those coming against the Rams in Week 5. His yardage totals had not been spectacular, but that is to be expected from the routes run by a typical tight end.
The Rams defense struggled to contain a potent Eagles passing offense last week as they gave up 333 passing yards and four touchdowns while four different receivers posted 50+ yard outings. This game was a true shootout, so the 51 passes attempted by the Eagles must be factored into those numbers as that marked 13 more passes than any other team has attempted against the Rams in a game this season. The Rams still possess one of the league's better secondaries with a top-tier duo of safeties in LaMarcus Joyner and rookie John Johnson who has come along well throughout the season and has back to back games with two passes defended. The Rams did allow three touchdowns to Eagles tight ends last week and have now allowed seven on the season, so look out for Jimmy Graham to try and bounce back.
