Seattle Seahawks DFS Spin

Seahawks placed QB Russell Wilson (finger) on injured reserve. With Seattle's bye scheduled for Week 9, Wilson will officially be sidelined until (at least) the team's game against Green Bay on November 14. Reportedly "one million percent" expected to seek a trade again this offseason, it's also possible Wilson takes his time to return for a team that will likely struggle to stay afloat without him. Fingers crossed D.K. Metcalf's and Tyler Lockett's talent are enough to keep them relevant from Geno Smith in fantasy for the next month-plus.

Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

Ben Roethlisberger completed 15-of-25 passes for 253 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Steelers' 27-19, Week 5 win over the Broncos. Roethlisberger battled minor injuries throughout the game, working with trainers on the sidelines at times between series. He returned for each drive, however. Roethlisberger looked better than he has in recent weeks, hitting Diontae Johnson in stride for a long TD. He also connected repeatedly with Chase Claypool, including for a 59-yard reception and an 18-yard TD. The Steelers will look to repeat this week's formula of a strong rushing attack paired with a low volume, high-efficiency passing game against the Seahawks in Week 6.

Seahawks vs. Steelers Betting Prediction

The favorite and the home team are 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams, respectively. The Steelers are also 54-26-2 against the spread in their last 82 games played in the month of October, while the Seahawks are just 2-7 against the number in their last nine road games and are 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games overall.
