The Week 15 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Giants features it's share of potential fantasy playoff studs and duds. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.
Russell Wilson had a rough day against the San Francisco 49ers last week. He threw for fewer than 200 yards for the third time this season and only found the end zone once while also tossing an interception. It's hard to blame him for it. The Seahawks have control of the NFC West, and the 49ers defense is particularly strong at home.
That said, Wilson should be in for a fairly good day against the Giants. New York is not playing for anything this year, other than evaluating talent for next season. Perhaps it'll help running back Marshawn Lynch put together a big day. Lynch ran for 72 yards and his team-leading 10th touchdown of the season against the 49ers last week.
New York Giants
This season has a familiar theme to it for the Giants, too little too late. That statement rings true of their running game mores than anything else. David Wilson struggled until injuring his neck and it took Andre Brown until Week 10 to play because of a broken leg. Brown has been solid in his return though. He'll be in tough against the Seahawks this week, but he does have three touchdowns in five games this season. He should still start in most deep fantasy leagues despite the matchup.
If Brown gets any space to run, quarterback Eli Manning might have a prayer against the Seahawks' tough secondary unit. Manning has just 16 touchdown passes on the year, putting him on pace to finish with a career-low number if you don't count the nine games he started as a rookie. His poor year has trickled down to the likes of Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, both of whom have struggled mightily this season.
