(10/26/14) The Seahawks DST bounced back from a subpar outing, with a double-digit Fantasy-point effort in a Week 8 win over the Panthers.
The Panthers offense managed just 266 yards of total offense Sunday, as the Seahawks looked more like the unit we have come to know. They forced a pair of turnovers and sacked quarterback Cam Newton en route to 15 Fantasy points.
The Seahawks have scored in double figures in Fantasy points just three times this season, though two of those efforts have come in the last three weeks. They will look to carry the momentum forward to Week 9 against the Raiders.
Good matchup doesn't help Seahawks DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/14) After facing some of the league's most explosive offenses over its first five games, the Seahawks DST looked like it finally had a chance to strut its stuff Week 7 at the Rams -- a team that entered the day having allowed the second-most Fantasy points per game to DSTs.
So naturally, the already underwhelming Seahawks DST had one of its worst performances of the season. In terms of yardage, it was fine, allowing 272 total. But it gave up 28 points without recording a sack or takeaway, marking the first time this season that the Seahawks had neither.
They didn't get any help from their special teams. Seven of those points came on a 90-yard punt return by Stedman Bailey in the second quarter. Still, by failing to deliver in its most favorable matchup to date, the Seahawks DST showed it might not be an automatic start in Fantasy.
Because the Panthers struggled against the Packers in Week 7, you might stick with the Seahawks DST for Week 8 at Carolina. But if you see a matchup you like better, have at it.
