ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seattle Seahawks CBs Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner will be playing against the Chicago Bears in Week 13. Both players have been tagged with four-game suspensions for allegedly taking performance enhancing drugs. They are appealing the sentence and will be playing this week.
Sherman and Browner have been the cornerstone of a strong Seahawks defense that's one of the best in the league.
Fantasy Impact: Seahawks fans, fantasy D/ST owners and IDP players can breathe easy for one more week. The pair of aggressive corners, known as the "Legion of Boom", are really what make this defense such a tough fantasy matchup.
If the suspensions hold up, it would be a crushing blow to Seattle's playoff hopes, and fantasy owners can suddenly exploit their weak depth in WR matchups. It's a day-by-day situation, so stay tuned.
