Week 14: at Los Angeles Rams - $3900
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.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs MIN (8 / 6 / 44 / 0 rec - 10.4 points, $4000)
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 - 4.2 points, $4300)
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 - 20.2 points, $3300)
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 - 19.7 points, $2900)
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 - 5 points, $2900)
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.
