Seattle Seahawks versus Minnesota Vikings NFL Fantasy Preview 12-6-2015
It will be a battle between playoff contenders as the Minnesota Vikings will host the Seattle Seahawks. NFL fantasy football draft GMs can tune to FOX at 1PM Eastern Time on Sunday December 6th to follow the results of their DFS roster picks.
The Seattle Seahawks have had their issues on the road this season with a record of 2-3. Both teams have defended well on the season. The Seahawks are fourth in total defense by allowing just 324 yards per game. They have struggled in that category recently allowing 30 or greater points in two of their past three games including 30 points allowed at home to Pittsburgh last week.
The Minnesota Vikings lead the NFC North division with a record of 8-3 on the year. The team is allowing just 17.6 points per game on the season good for second best in the NFL. Two losses by Minnesota have come in their biggest test with a 30-14 home defeat to Green Bay and a 23-20 road loss at Denver. The offense has sputtered for the Vikings by averaging just 21 points per game ranking 26th in the league. Minnesota’s biggest weapon is Adrian Peterson but the Seahawks defend the run very well and have an outstanding secondary.
Here is the Fantasy Football Pick:
Seattle Seahawks defense
It will be hard for Minnesota to generate points on the Seahawks defense. They will stop the run and force Teddy Bridgewater to make plays in the passing game. Unfortunately the Vikings are 31st and second worst in the league in passing offense and the Seahawks have a very good secondary.
Indianapolis Colts versus Pittsburgh Steelers
NFL Real Money Fantasy Preview 12-6-2015
Two AFC contenders will battle on Sunday December 6th as the Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Indianapolis Colts. One day fantasy football draft managers can tune to NBC TV at 8:30PM Eastern Time to track the results of their DFS roster picks.
Both teams have had issues with the health of their starting quarterback. Indianapolis enters play with a 6-5 mark and sit 22nd in total offense and 26th in total defense with the weakness on defense being against the pass. Andrew Luck has been ruled out with kidney an abdominal injuries. It will be Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback once again for the Colts. Indianapolis has a three game win streak since a three point home win to Denver on November 8th. Their defense came through with a good performance last week in a 25-12 home victory to Tampa Bay.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are on back to back road games this week. The team is 6-5 after dropping a 39-30 road decision at Seattle last week. The Colts don’t sport a dynamic offense like Seattle. The Steelers have put together some very good offensive numbers. They are number six in the league in passing offense as they throw for 279 yards per game.
Here are the NFL Fantasy Picks for your Real Money League:
Play on Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers QB)
After suffering a concussion last week it looks like Ben Roethlisberger will play on Sunday night. He is completing 66.5% of his throws for 2343 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine picks. Big Ben will be throwing against a Colts defense that ranks 27th against the pass. It should be a big day for Roethlisberger.
Play on Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers WR)
Brown has led the Steelers with 85 catches for 1192 yards with five touchdowns. Two weeks ago in the win against Cleveland the wide out had ten catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Against another bad defensive team Browns had 17 receptions for 284 yards versus the Raiders.
