Seattle Seahawks Analysis
The Seahawks offense has been outstanding this season, but they face a tough test against the 49ers defense this week. The 49ers defense ranks 1st in yards allowed and 2nd in points allowed. However, the 49ers have had a pretty easy schedule and have shown that they can allow plenty of yards to decent offenses. Last week, the 49ers allowed 357 yards of offense to the Cardinals. They could allow a similar total or more yards this week to a Seahawks offense that ranks 4th in total yards gained.
Last game, the Seahawks offense went off. They had 492 yards of total offense and scored 40 points. Russell Wilson had an amazing game, throwing for 378 yards and 5 touchdowns. He has a tough matchup against the 49ers who are ranked 3rd in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks, but that should not stop Wilson. He has had great games against top defenses in the past and should continue to perform well this week. When the team needs Wilson to step up and perform well, he puts up monster performances. This week, the Seahawks will need Wilson to deliver, and he will most likely have a great game.
Also, Tyler Lockett should have a good game this week. Though he is matched up against Richard Sherman, he should get a lot of targets. Last week, Lockett was targeted 18 times, and could see a great amount of targets this week as well. He is still a good fantasy option this week. Running back Chris Carson is also a great option. The 49ers allowed 110 rushing yards to Kenyan Drake last week, and could allow another 100 yard game to Carson this week. The run defense appears to be a weak point for the 49ers, so look for the Seahawks to exploit that weakness.

San Francisco 49ers Analysis
The 49ers passing offense really came to life last week. Before, it seemed like the 49ers could only run the ball and were scared to rely on Jimmy Garoppolo to throw the ball. However, Garoppolo proved himself last week, throwing for 317 yards and 4 touchdowns. Still, he may not be a great option for fantasy this week. The 49ers will probably run the ball more to wear down the Seahawks defense. This means that running back Tevin Coleman should have a great game. He is the RB1 of the team and Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida are dealing with injuries. He should get a lot of carries and could rip apart this Seahawks defense that ranks 18th in fantasy points allowed to running backs.
If George Kittle does not play in this game, it would be a major blow to the 49ers offense. Currently, his status for Monday night’s game is up in the air. He is dealing with ankle and knee injuries and Kyle Shanahan has given no indication as to whether he will play. If he plays, he would be a great start, so it is important to monitor his status before the game.

Daily Fantasy: Seahawks Offense
Chris Carson (DK: $6,700, FD: $7,600) is a great option this week. With 49ers linebacker Kwon Alexander injured, the 49ers defense will not be as good this week. Look for the Seahawks to get the offense going by running the ball early and often. Also, Russell Wilson (DK: $6,500, FD: $8,200) should have a good game this week. Even though he is facing a top 49ers defense, he always performs well and his salary is cheaper this week because of the matchup. Tyler Lockett (DK: $7,500, FD: $7,700) will also do well as Wilson’s favorite target. He always has a decent game and gets a lot of targets. Lastly, Tevin Coleman (DK: $5,600, FD: $6,700) will have a good game. The Seahawks defense has not been great at stopping running backs, so Coleman should have plenty of room to run.
