Seahawks defense finishes with solid fantasy outing against 49ers

Thearon W. Henderson

The Seahawks defense only allowed 13 points in Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

Despite walking away with a loss on Thursday night, the Seahawks defense still only allowed 13 points and 313 total yards to the 49ers in Week 7. They had a tough time stopping the Niners ground game, which ultimately proved to be their downfall.

Seattle's defensive front is usually stout against opposing rushers, but Frank Gore didn't seem to encounter any issues running all over the field this time around.

Fantasy Impact: Brandon Browner added one interception on the night, and the Seahawks brought down Alex Smith behind the line twice. This D/ST remains a top option for fantasy owners everywhere.

Pete Carroll's team heads to Detroit in Week 8. They should be able to keep a struggling Lions offense in check.
