The Seattle Seahawks host the Minnesota Vikings in a huge game for both teams, each of which is looking to hang around the playoff race. This could prove to be a defensive battle, lowering the fantasy value of players involved. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup with some of these players, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
The Vikings are first and foremost built around Adrian Peterson. Although Seattle has a solid rush defense, AP remains a must-start as he has been quite impressive in his return from ACL surgery. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and sat out Friday, but he is listed as probable and is expected to start.
The Seahawks, much like the Vikings, are first and foremost about the running game. Marshawn Lynch drives this offense, even more so than Adrian Peterson does for Minnesota. Russell Wilson has shown he can make plays, but he is an inconsistent rookie, which is nothing new. That lowers the value of guys like Sidney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. They are bye week options almost exclusively.
