(12/14/14) The Seahawks defense continued their strong late-season run in Week 15, with a 17-7 win over the 49ers Sunday.
The Seahawks mostly failed to make many big plays, but the 49ers just couldn't get anything done against them offensively. The 49ers managed just 245 yards of total offense in the game, and though they failed to come away with any turnovers, the Seahawks did sack Colin Kaepernick six times en route to 16 Fantasy points.
The Seahawks have found their way on defense of late, averaging 19.0 Fantasy points per game over the last four. They will look to keep it up in Week 16 against the Cardinals, and should be viewed as a must-start unit.

For the season, Sherman has 45 tackles, three picks and a forced fumble. He'll face the 49ers again in Week 15.
