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 Chicago Bears
- The Seattle Seahawks offense looks like its trying to match the defense in being the top dog in the NFL. The entire offense clicked on all cylinders. Seattle had it’s way with the Bears. In fact, the Bears didn’t force a single punt until the end of the 3rd quarter. Marshawn Lynch shows no sign of slowing down, as he ran for 16 yards and a touchdown on only three carries.
- Russell Wilson did Russell Wilson type things all night. For anyone that thinks that Wilson is just a “game manager”, just open your eyes and you will see that this guy is special. Wilson went 15 of 20 for 2o2 yards and two passing touchdowns, along with 23 yards on four carries and a rushing touchdown. Wilson extended plays all night, and is just getting better and better. He is the true leader of this team.
- Percy Harvin had 61 yards on just three catches, showcasing how much of a playmaker he can be. The guy has a crazy fantasy ceiling, but his injury concerns keep his stock a little down. Take the risk if you can grab him at a fair price.
- Nothing much from the Bears side of things, which seems to be a trend as the preseason goes on with every Seahawk opponent. This is just a testament to how truly good and suffocating this Seahawks defense really is.
- Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall had eight and seven targets respectively, Both seem to be targeted equally, and both will post superb numbers. This could be the top wide receiver duo in the league and in fantasy.
