We’ve made it! Football is back, and with that comes the over analyzing of the preseason, trying to find any advantage we can for our upcoming drafts. Many fantasy champions are made in the preseason. From analyzing rookies to scoping out all of the off-season moves, I will try to help you prepare as well. This series has to do with fantasy trends from this weeks bevy of preseason games. I hope you’ve enjoyed my rundowns of the preseason games! Stayed tuned for breakdowns of every preseason game here.
Seattle Seahawks vs San Diego Chargers
- Last night’s game was a Seattle Seahawk Domination. Russell Wilson went 11 of 13 for 121 yards and 31 yards on the ground with two rushing TDs. Russell Wilson is one of my favorite quarterbacks this upcoming season. With recent talks of Marshawn Lynch being a “fantasy bust”, Wilson will have to air out the ball more and rely more on his scrambling abilities. He ran the ball strong to rack up yards last night, and as a Seattle fan, I’ve watched a lot of tape on Wilson. He often runs a bit reluctant, but last night he ran confidently and it showed in his rushing touchdowns. He is being criminally undervalued in drafts, and seems to now be a goal line option. He is a must draft, as his ADP puts him behind risky picks like Nick Foles and Robert Griffin III.
- Percy Harvin drew a lot of coverage last night, which gives Russell Wilson more openings. Harvin finished his night going for 31 yards on four catches. Harvin was Wilsonl’s most targeted receiver. That will free up other targets like Zach Miller and Doug Baldwin.
- Robert Turbin had a great performance last night, and seems to be ahead of Christine Michael. Turbin finished with 81 hard yards on 12 carries, doing his best Marshawn Lynch impersonation getting yards after contact and throwing defenders off with stiff arms. Turbo looked like a man playing for the starting job. He was very impressive.
- There weren’t many positives on San Diego’s side of things. Ryan Mathews and Phillip Rivers were inactive in this game. Keenan Allen did catch a touchdown on his only catch of the night.
