Week 7: vs Baltimore Ravens

All WR vs BAL

FBG says: Good matchup. Even with the Seattle pass game in transition, Russell Wilson continues to dazzle with his trademark efficiency. The MVP frontrunner leads the NFL in adjusted yards per attempt, which factors in yardage, touchdown, and interceptions. He sits just 16th in attempts, but has thrown 14 touchdowns (with no picks) and produced 284 passing yards a game. It was believed that he'd struggle without security blanket Doug Baldwin, but he keeps proving exceptional at maximizing his supporting talent. Tyler Lockett is a truly versatile playmaker, while rookie DK Metcalf keeps making splash plays with his elite blend of size, speed, and physicality. They bounce around the map in terms of volume, but make for ideal fits with Wilson, who loves to chase big plays downfield and is as proficient as anyone at doing so. It's unfortunate that tight end Will Dissly (Achilles) has had his second straight season cut short; fill-in Luke Willson doesn't project anywhere near Dissly's role. But there's still plenty of playmaking here for Wilson to create with. One has to wonder whether regression will come calling and dip his numbers accordingly. Still, Wilson has long bucked that trend, as seen in his elite career 6.1% touchdown rate. His surgical approach gives this attack both a great floor and strong weekly upside. Through six games, the Ravens' pass defense performance has divided neatly down the line drawn by its competition. They've been dominant against the Dolphins, Steelers, and Bengals, allowing them just 6.4 yards per attempt and 2 touchdowns. But against the Cardinals, Chiefs, and Browns, they've given up 10.0 and 4 scores. Each of the latter three topped 340 yards, and each one featured a pair of receivers with 80+ yards. Hence, the mid-week trade for former All-Pro Marcus Peters, who should start immediately on the outside. As a member of the Rams, Peters was a shell of his old Chiefs self, giving up almost too many long touchdowns to count over nearly a year and a half there. But he at least provides a big theoretical upgrade on bodies like Anthony Levine and Maurice Canady, both of whom have beaten just as badly of late. The biggest problems have come inside, while Brandon Carr has been picked on relentlessly. Each of their last four opponents has produced well in the slot, including big weeks from Travis Kelce (7 for 89), Jarvis Landry (8 for 167), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (7 for 75 and a touchdown). Earl Thomas has been solid as a centerfield-type free safety, but the team does miss Eric Weddle's presence, especially with starter Tony Jefferson on injured reserve. There are certainly strong weeks here and there for this crew, when the versatile pass rush consistently wins in the pocket and forces errant throws. Perhaps Peters' arrival will spark something in both him and the unit. But in neutral situations - and against quarterbacks as good as Russell Wilson - this is no longer a matchup to avoid. Rather, it can now be viewed as an upside spot, especially for slot producers like Tyler Lockett and deep-ball mismatches like DK Metcalf.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs PIT (3 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)

Turner was the clear third WR, and showed excellent awareness after the catch. He made a nice spin move away from the defender on one short catch to get a few yards. His second catch was short, on a 3rd and long, so he had no chance to get anywhere. And later, another catch and run over the middle, for a good gain. His competition on the depth chart, Jaron Brown, was charged with two penalties early in the game, which likely gave Turner more snaps than usual. If that continues, he could be a valuable cog in the wheel for the Seahawks.
