Seattle Seahawks Analysis

Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks are 5-1 and are leading the highly competitive NFC West division. Last week, they entered into a crazy battle against division rival Arizona Cardinals in overtime, where they took on their first loss of the season 37-34. Russell Wilson threw an interception in overtime to give Arizona the chance at the game and they took it. They look to bounce back in another tough game against the 49ers.

Russell Wilson has been putting on a case for MVP this season leading this team to a 5-1 record. Last week, he threw for 388 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. Half of his interceptions on the season came from last week and he has continued to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He will go up against a defense that has allowed the third least amount of passing yards to team this season and the fourth least amount of passing touchdowns too.

The Seahawks’ backfield is seriously banged up giving questionable status to running backs Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and Trevor Homer. Fourth-round rookie DeeJay Dallas is the only healthy running back for this game and may receive the most touches. None of the other running backs have practiced through Thursday, and look to take the practice field before the game to see if any of them can play. However, Carlos Hyde made a big impact last with 15 rushes for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks’ loss.

DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will be hugely important for the game this Sunday with the inevitable loss of their run game. Fortunately, both of these receivers have been having phenomenal seasons so far ranking 9th and 11th in yards and first and fifth in receiving touchdowns, with Lockett leading the way. Thankfully, the 49ers have been without Richard Sherman since week one, but Emmanuel Moseley will challenge either of them next week.

The Seahawks defense this year has been pretty giving to opposing offenses this season. Their rush defense has been solid, but they have allowed the most passing yards per game and nearly 30 points per game to opposing teams. They have a plethora of guys on the stat sheets though. They have six defensive players in the top 50 for passes defended and three guys tied for seventh in interceptions this season. Mostly, the Seahawks get passed against a lot, but their rushing defense will have to step up to the challenge of the 49ers, who run the ball a whole lot.

San Francisco 49ers Analysis

San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers are 4-3 and are last in the NFC West. This season, it seems like every starter for their team has been injured from Jimmy Garopollo to Nick Bosa. Last week, they showed the reason they made the NFC Championship last year by destroying the Patriots 33-6. Their defense has seen its highs and lows this season but has been holding their own in games. They look to steal a win from division leader Seattle Seahawks next week.

Jimmy Garoppolo has struggled with an ankle injury this season but has been there for the team in the past two weeks. Last week, he didn’t have to do much for his team to win, throwing for 277 yards and two interceptions. But, against the Rams two weeks ago, he threw for 268 yards and three touchdowns to win another crucial division game. He will be an important role next week with the 49ers banged-up backfield.

Last week, Jeff Wilson carried his team to a victory with three touchdowns. However, he is most likely joining an injured reserve with Raheem Mostert this week with an ankle injury. Tevin Coleman is looking to come off of IR to play Sunday but is not certain about doing so yet. The backfield will most likely be led by Jerick McKinnon and JaMychal Hasty. McKinnon hasn’t done much over the past three weeks, but he filled in nicely when the 49ers were down for injuries before. Over a two week span, he had 92 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns along with 82 receiving yards. He will be an important part of the 49ers offense next week to keep their run-heavy scheme alive.

The 49ers’ defense will be the most important part of next week as they take on one of the most productive offenses in the NFL. They have done a great job this season, ranking top ten in the least allowed of passing and rushing yards and passing and rushing touchdowns. They have been seriously dominant this season over their opponents, allowing only 19.4 points per game, which ranks fourth in the league. They will need to kick it into high gear next week to get over the Seattle Seahawks.

Prediction

Spread: 49ers +2.5
Moneyline: Seahawks -165
Over/Under: u54

This game will probably be one of the harder ones to bet on this week. This is another rare occasion where I think the underdog can cover while the favorite will win. The 49ers are 4-3 against the spread, but undefeated against the spread on the road. I think this game will be really close, knowing that the 49ers need this game to climb back in the division. But, I think the combination of the Seahawks offense and their injured offense could be too much to handle for the win, giving the Seahawks my prediction for the money line.

The Seahawks are arguably facing the toughest defense they have seen this season and will still probably score a decent amount of points. However, the 49ers are not the high scoring type, while keeping others honest on defense. I think the line is set a little high for this game, making me select the under for this game.

Love/Hate Fantasy Picks

Love

Jerick McKinnon has been a love fantasy pick for me for too long this season. However, he is the only running back they can trust at the moment with the injuries to their backfield. In the first four weeks, he averaged 16.6 fantasy points with not that many touches through the first two. With a lot of touches next week against an allowing Seahawks defense, he could be an RB2 filler or flex spot.

Hate

Carlos Hyde
Carlos Hyde has a pretty good chance of playing on Sunday even with an injury designation. However, the 49ers have allowed the least amount of fantasy points to running backs this season, and I doubt they are going to start allowing them to Carlos Hyde. Hyde should stay on the bench with injury and a tough matchup.
