Seattle Seahawks DFS Spin

Asked about his future in a press conference on Thursday, Russell Wilson said "My goal is to win more Super Bowls. My plan is to win them here. It's that simple." Reading between the lines, it sure sounds like Wilson believes major changes should happen in Seattle. The question was raised about him not having to "hope" to be a Seahawk because he has a no-trade clause. Pretty much everything is on the table for the Seahawks entering 2022, from running it back with a healthy Wilson to blowing it all up.

Arizona Cardinals DFS Spin

Kyler Murray completed 26-of-38 attempts for 263 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals' Week 17 win against the Cowboys, adding nine rushes for 44 yards. Murray was nine yards short of leading the team in rushing yards thanks to a few fourth quarter rushes that helped the Cardinals salt the game away after a half-hearted Dallas comeback attempt. Murray found Antoine Wesley for two touchdowns and hit A.J. Green for a 42-yard first half gain to set up another Arizona touchdown. Getting the ball out quickly against a ferocious Dallas pass rush, Murray was accurate throughout, and scrambled effectively when Arizona's offensive line was overwhelmed by Cowboys EDGE rushers. Murray appeared more settled than he has been since losing WR1 DeAndre Hopkins a few weeks ago. As always, he'll have massive upside in Week 18 against Seattle's woeful defense.
