The Colts are ranked eighth against the pass and are seventh in the NFL with 13 sacks, so the Seahawks offensive line has another tough task ahead of it as the unit tries to soldier through injury issues. Wilson rushed for 77 yards against the Texans, but if Lynch can establish a rhythm early and often, the Seahawks QB may be able to buy more time to throw against the Colts, who may not be able to generate quite as much pressure as Houston did. Wilson will take off when he needs to and can make some plays on the move as well. Look for a balance of respectable passing and running totals, enough to supplement your other top Fantasy players this week.
The Seahawks allowed 325 passing yards and 151 rushing yards to the Texans last week, and will certainly come to prove that such totals are an anomaly this week. The Colts rank 10th in yards per game in the NFL, and are fourth in rushing yards per game. Yet the recently-acquired Trent Richardson has yet to hit his full stride in the Colts offense, and is averaging 3.1 yards per carry. So
Andrew Luck is ascending quickly as a second-year passer, but the Seahawks secondary obviously has the depth to lock up his top targets, including Reggie Wayne and up-and-coming TE Coby Fleener.
Ray Rice should see more of a regular workload this week against the Dolphins, and should be locked into your lineups. DeMarco Murray should be very busy as the Cowboys try to keep the ball away from the Broncos as much as possible. Expect Knowshon Moreno to get into the end zone in the same game. If you are looking for a sleeper play, BenJarvus Green-Ellis faces his old team, and should get into the end zone against New England. Whenever players oppose their former teams, you may see a boost in their Fantasy production. Also keep a trained eye on the Rams RB situation, where Zac Stacy could get a chance to emerge as a lead guy this week.
Andre Johnson proved last week he is a must-start regardless of opponent, and he will have another highly productive outing as he faces San Francisco. Larry Fitzgerald is healthy again and is a must-start against the Panthers. Danny Amendola should post big numbers in his expected return to action. James Jones is a very good WR3 choice against the Lions. Hakeem Nicks will show his better form against a weak Eagles pass defense, and Eddie Royal is a good bet to score against the Raiders. Justin Blackmon returns to action for the Jaguars and deserves WR3 consideration.
If you are desperate for help at TE, Kellen Winslow should be a frequent target for Geno Smith, who has to cope with a depleted WR corps. Jared Cook will get some scoring opportunities against the Jaguars. The Rams defense is also a strong play, as their defensive line will certainly have its way with a team that has allowed a NFL-high 18 sacks. The Jets have allowed 14 and are very thin on offense, making Atlanta a top defensive selection for this week as well.
