Seattle Seahawks

Marshawn Lynch (Running Back): Lynch had another mediocre day were in which he ran for 71 yards on 21 attempts. Lynch has not had an elite year in terms of fantasy production and has struggled to get much going on the ground. Lynch has only reached 100 rushing yards once in 2015.

Russell Wilson (Quarterback): Wilson had his standard day of production. He completed 19 of 30 passing attempts for 210 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Wilson continues to generate first downs and rushing yards with his feet as he had 6 carries for 32 yards. The Seahawks will look to sort out some offensive line issues during the bye so let's see if that helps Wilson stay upright more often.

Jimmy Graham (Tight End): Graham had a fantastic game when you consider the duds he puts up every now and then. Graham caught 7 out of 10 targets for 75 yards which was a healthy stat line from tight ends in week 8. Expect the Seahawks to try to get Graham some more reps as Wilson's go to deep target during their bye week.


Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant/Terrance Williams (Wide Receivers): Dez Bryant saw blanket coverage from Richard Sherman all afternoon. Bryant did seem tentative testing out his foot however he ran like the old Dez when breaking on the ball on his non injured foot. Sherman seemed a lot more confident and comfortable knowing he was not facing a fully healthy Dez and took advantage of it. Dez only caught 2 of his 6 targets for 12 yards but had no setbacks with his injury.

Darren McFadden/ Christine Michael (Running Backs): McFadden once again carried the load for this Cowboys running game. McFadden ended the game with 20 rushing attempts for 64 yards and caught 6 out of 8 targets for 49 yards. Michael was the change of pace back getting about 5 rushing attempts for 20 yards and he couldn't haul in either of his targets. The Cowboys released Joseph Randle so it is likely McFadden and Michael's role will increase.

Jason Witten (Tight End): Witten had his quietest day of the season only hauling in 2 out of 4 targets for 16 yards. Witten should be a safer play against the Eagles in week 9.
