DFS Showdown Tips: Seahawks-Rams

By Matt Schauf 3:12pm EST 12/8/19

59 points. 906 yards.

That’s what we got the last time the Rams and Seahawks met, Week 5 in Seattle.

Jared Goff threw 49 passes and racked up 395 yards.

Russell Wilson delivered 4 TD passes on just 23 attempts, to 4 different teammates.

Todd Gurley and Chris Carson had big games, including 3 total TDs between them.

Cooper Kupp racked up 17 targets and posted strong numbers. Gerald Everett had a huge night. He’s not playing this time around.

This game boasts plenty of offensive upside. So where’s the value for our showdown lineups? Let’s see ...


It makes sense that the kickers pop in a matchup that produced so many points last round. Overall, we’re talking about a Seahawks offense that ranks 5th in scoring and 3rd in total yards, while the Rams sit 12th and 10th, respectively. Greg Zuerlein ranks 7th among kickers in total fantasy points for the season. Jason Myers sits 13th, with his 3 biggest scoring days (his only 3 double-digit outings) among the past 5 games.

Tyler Higbee’s low standing is a bit surprising, but his salary leaped off last week’s production. He certainly sports upside well beyond our projection, though, if the Rams decide to -- or need to -- go pass-heavy once again.

Todd Gurley looks like a strong value. The past 3 weeks have seen him carry 25, 6 and 19 times. The 6 came in a blowout loss to the Ravens. HC Sean McVay said this week that “me not being an idiot” has been the change getting Gurley the ball more lately.


Beyond the obvious move of trying to get both QBs into the lineup here, Tyler Lockett stands out because his salary checks in $500 south of teammate D.K. Metcalf. We’ll see how much time he spends with CB Jalen Ramsey in coverage.
