At Bruno Boys, we like to take a deeper look at a handful of Key Matches and see where the most intriguing battles of the week are and where the struggle for points will come. The winner of these head-to-head standoffs will either lead to memorable fantasy box score or a big denial of points. Here are some of the league’s more fascinating bouts of Week 17 and understanding which side is likely to win can help you optimize your traditional fantasy team roster or help you find that deep well of points for your daily fantasy football contests.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson vs. San Francisco 49ers secondary
Seattle’s run game has struggled all season, and the injury to Thomas Rawls won’t help. Because of that, the Seahawks have turned to Wilson to provide offense, and he’s delivered. His best fantasy performance of the season came last week against the Cardinals, as he threw for 350 yards and four touchdowns and added 36 yards on the ground. This week he’ll take on a weak 49ers secondary that has allowed 29 touchdowns, tied for third-most in the league, and ranks in the bottom third of the league in fantasy points per game allowed to quarterbacks. Wilson is one of the best bets at quarterback this week.
