Seattle still an intriguing starting option at San Francisco
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (12/7/13) The Seahawks may be an intriguing starting option for Sunday's difficult matchup against the 49ers in Week 14.
Seattle dominated New Orleans at home last week, allowing only 188 yards of total offense in a 34-7 victory. The Seahawks are riding high and have fared well against the 49ers as of late, outscoring San Francisco 71-16 in the previous two meetings. The last time they faced the 49ers, Seattle picked off Colin Kaepernick three times and allowed 207 yards of total offense.
Our Fantasy experts have Seattle ranked as low as 13th and as high as third this week. Consider them a solid starting option in all formats for Week 14.
Brandon Browner turns down reduced suspension
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (12/7/13) Seahawks defensive back Brandon Browner isn't playing in Week 14 against the 49ers because of a groin injury, but that isn't the only thing he has to be concerned about. Browner still has that one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy hanging over his head, and NFL.com reports Friday he turned down the opportunity to reduce the suspension.
Browner, who is currently appealing the suspension, was offered a deal that would have reduced his suspension by about three months, allowing him to return to the field next October. The appeals process it likely to take another few weeks, though it isn't clear when Browner would even be healthy enough to play at this point.

The Seahawks DST turned out to be among the best units in 2012, and they should continue to produce at a high level this season. The Seahawks were No. 3 in Fantasy points in standard leagues last year with 36 sacks, 13 fumble recoveries, 18 interceptions and six defensive touchdowns. They scored at least 16 Fantasy points seven times, including 45 points in Week 14 against the Cardinals. The Seahawks reached double digits in Fantasy points in all but four games, and they should be dominant again. We consider the Seahawks DST a No. 1 option in all leagues, and they are worth drafting with a late-round pick. (Updated 4/26/13)
