Seattle Seahawks, D/ST
The Seahawks took advantage of a favorable matchup in Week 13, allowing 16 points to the San Francisco 49ers with three sacks, three takeaways and a defensive touchdown. Week 14 doesn’t look like a great matchup on paper, but I’m here to tell you different.
Based on talent alone, the Minnesota Vikings should have one of the league’s best offenses. But Kirk Cousins has thrown two interceptions in each of their last two road games, as they put up 20 garbage time-aided points against the Chicago Bears (Week 11) and 10 points against the New England Patriots on Week 13. A lackluster offensive line has also ceded multiple sacks in nine of 12 games thus far.
The Seattle defense will benefit from a home field advantage next Monday night, apart from playing a dome team outdoors. They were widely added heading into Week 13, at least in Yahoo! leagues, but this unit is an underrated streamer for Week 14 before a rematch with the 49ers in Week 15.
