Arizona Cardinals

Michael Floyd/ John Brown/ Larry Fitzgerald (Wide Receiver): Richard Sherman should stay on his side of the field for this one but could shadow Larry Fitzgerald for a large portion of the game. Michael Floyd will be starting opposite of Fitzgerald and he will likely draw Cary Williams. Floyd has been a monster these past few weeks since becoming healthy and if any wide receiver is going to find the end zone in this game it will be him. John Brown will face a Seahawks defense coming off a hamstring injury so his production may be a bit questionable. Floyd is the only player who has starting appeal.

Chris Johnson (Running Back): Seattle does not give up points to running backs, it just doesn't happen. In fact Seattle has given up the fewest points to running backs all season long. Johnson just does not seem like a solid start.

Carson Palmer (Quarterback): Palmer is my actually fantasy QB and I'm not starting him, not because I think he will play bad, but he may not reach 20 points. The Seahawks also need this win more than the Cardinals; with a win here the Cardinals would be 3 games ahead of them making it practically impossible to win the division. The Seahawks should stand up in this game to keep their playoff hopes alive.


Seattle Seahawks

Marshawn Lynch (Running Back): Lynch has had a bye to rest his injured hamstring. Now he goes up against a defense that has given up the 9th fewest points in fantasy football. The Cardinals have given up 89.3 rushing yards per game and have only given up three rushing touchdowns all season so Lynch will have to be in next level form to get something going in this matchup. Lynch is an RB2 with RB1 upside.

Russell Wilson (Quarterback):  Arizona's defense is just as dominant and brutal as Seattle's so it is possible that without an offensive line to protect him Wilson will struggle more than usual. The Cardinals put a ton of pressure on their opponents and this could be Wilson's downfall. Wilson should be benched this week.

Jimmy Graham (Tight End): Arizona has given up the 4th fewest points to tight ends in 2015. Graham has been inconsistent this entire year with his floor ranging from 1-5 points and his ceiling at 20 points he is hardly a lock to do anything mind blowing this game. His production will likely be stunted and I doubt that Wilson will have the time to throw to him.
