Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Kyler Murray completed 19-of-25 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Cardinals' 38-24, Week 15 win over the Browns. Murray had arguably his best game as a pro, averaging 8.8 yards per attempt and posting a 76% completion rate. His touchdown was a perfectly-placed six-yard strike to Dan Arnold in the corner of the end zone. The electric rookie QB added 56 yards on the ground, including a 35-yard scamper that featured Murray reverse across the field and break several tackles. Murray’s afternoon could’ve been much bigger had four (!!!) separate trips to the red zone not ended in rushing touchdowns for Kenyan Drake. The overall QB7 entering Sunday, fire up Murray as a mid-tier QB1 in Week 16 against the Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks Fantasy Spin
Russell Wilson completed 20-of-26 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns while also losing a yard on three carries Sunday in Seattle’s Week 15 victory over the Panthers. He was sacked twice for a loss of 12 yards. After failing to score an offensive touchdown in last week's loss to the Rams, the Seahawks poured on four TDs Sunday in Carolina. Wilson had a hand in two of them, capping an eight-play drive with a 19-yard touchdown to DK Metcalf before adding a second 19-yarder—this one to Tyler Lockett—in the second quarter of Sunday's 30-24 victory. Wilson was his usual free-wielding self, extending plays with his trademark elusiveness while improvising when necessary. While Wilson's MVP ship has likely already sailed—Lamar Jackson has that one in the bag—he's still been remarkable for the Seahawks, who will take an 11-3 record into next week's battle with Arizona. Russ should have no trouble carving up the Cardinals, who entered the week allowing a league-high 294.2 passing yards per game.
