Seattle Seahawks Fantasy Spin

Tyler Lockett (back) wasn't listed on the Seahawks' final injury report for Week 2 against the Steelers. Lockett didn't practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday due to back spasms, but he wasn't listed on the Seahawks' final injury report. Coach Pete Carroll clarified to reporters earlier in the day that Lockett is indeed "fine." He's set up brilliantly this week against a Steelers defense that has historically struggled to slow down elite slot WRs. Lockett possesses one of the week's top-nine matchups in terms of the difference in 40-yard dash times between himself and his projected matchup against CB Mike Hilton.

Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Spin

JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is good to go for the Steelers' Week 2 matchup against the Seahawks. JuJu (90% snap rate) and Donte Moncrief (90%) were the Steelers' only full-time WRs in Week 1, as each of Ryan Switzer (69%), James Washington (52%) and Diontae Johnson (36%) were featured more as auxiliary options. JuJu is locked in as a WR1 as the undisputed lead target in what looks like one of the league's most pass-heavy offenses. The whole passing game is set up well against a Seahawks defense that just allowed Andy Dalton to throw for 418 yards and a pair of scores in Week 1.

NFL Betting Trends


The Seahawks have covered the spread in five of their last six road games and are 9-4-1 against the number in their last 14 games overall.


The Steelers are 4-1 against the number in their last five games versus an opponent that owns a winning record but are just 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall.


The Steelers typically play better at home than they do on the road and the opposite is true for the Seahawks, who haven’t always traveled well. That said, bettors might be surprised to know that Pittsburgh is actually 4-9 against the number in its last 13 home games. Granted, the Steelers aren’t as bad as they played last Sunday night in Foxborough but the fact remains that they’re less explosive offensively than in years past and they still have issues defensively at linebacker and in the secondary. Asking to lay over a field goal with a team that struggled that badly a week ago is too rich for me. I like the value in the underdog Seahawks, who can establish the run against most teams and who has the ultimate wild card in QB Russell Wilson.

NFL Week 2 Prediction: Seattle Seahawks +3.5
