Seattle Seahawks DFS Spin
Russell Wilson completed 20-of-32 passes for 225 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' 20-9, Week 16 win over the Rams, adding a rushing touchdown and nine yards on three attempts on the ground. Wilson's numbers have dipped severely in recent weeks, and today was no different, as the offense struggled to move the ball most of the day against the Rams' strong defense. Still, Wilson did enough for the Seahawks to clinch the NFC West. His first score was a four-yard keeper where Wilson couldn't find anyone open in the end zone. The passing score was a game-sealing 13-yarder to Jacob Hollister after he missed Hollister earlier in the day on a would-be touchdown. The Seahawks have a shot at improving their seeding for Week 17, so Wilson should be out there against the 49ers next Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers DFS Spin
C.J. Beathard completed 13 of 22 passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns in the 49ers' 20-12 Week 16 win over the Cardinals, adding three rushes for 18 yards. Beathard was competent throughout the game, perfectly executing a conservative, run-based offensive approach against an Arizona defense unable to stop it. Beathard zeroed in on former college teammate George Kittle, who caught four balls for 92 yards in his return from a foot injury. The 49ers will try to deploy the same approach next week against the Seahawks with Beathard at the helm. He'll be a decent floor option in superflex formats.
