Week 14: at Los Angeles Rams

All TE vs LAR

FBG says: Bad matchup. Although Seattle's offense ranks in the bottom quarter of the NFL in passing volume, Russell Wilson's incredible 2019 season has the team ranked firmly in the top-10 of almost every relevant passing statistic. The Seahawks rank 10th in the NFL in passing yards, tied for 1st in passing touchdowns, and 5th in net yards per attempt so far this season. Through the air, Wilson has favored Tyler Lockett as his number-one target. However, in recent weeks, a leg injury along with the flu have limited Lockett's impact on the game, as he averages just three targets per game over the last month. D.K. Metcalf has picked up some of the slack, as the rookie receiver has led the team's receiving corps in targets in every game since Lockett was initially hampered by the leg injury against the San Francisco 49ers. Josh Gordon has yet to make much of an impact in the team's offense, aside from two timely catches, and there is no sign of that changing anytime soon. The Los Angeles Rams field one of the NFL's most talented pass defenses at all three levels this season. The Rams have defended above-average volume through the air, and aside from two outlier performances, they have done a great job at limiting opposing passing attacks. On a per-play basis, the Rams rank 6th in the NFL, allowing just 5.7 net yards per attempt this season, thanks to their supremely talented unit of pass defenders. Along the defensive line, Aaron Donald headlines one of the league's most-feared pass-rushes. Aaron Donald, Clay Matthews, and Dante Fowler, Jr. have combined for 25 sacks this season, in large part thanks to Donald's uncanny ability to command and beat double teams. At linebacker, Cory Littleton is one of the best pass-defending linebackers in the NFL. Littleton is tied for the team-lead in interceptions this season, with two to his name, and his athleticism at the second-level is nearly-unmatched by any other linebacker in the league. In the secondary, an in-season move to acquire Jalen Ramsey bolstered an already impressive defensive backfield. Ramsey's performance in a Rams' jersey has been just slightly-above-average through six games, but he should return to his All-Pro levels in the near future. Ramsey is supported by established veterans in Nickell Robey-Coleman and Eric Weddle in the secondary, helping to compensate for Ramsey's comparatively disappointing production. Lastly, Taylor Rapp, a wildly impressive rookie that recorded his first career interception last weekend, rounds out one of the league's best pass defenses at the safety position. In all, Los Angeles' pass defense is one of the league's strongest, and they should give Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks' passing attack as much trouble as any defense has this season.
