Is it ok to shout “FOOTBALL IS BACK” every Thursday morning? I get it, it’s already week 5 Deke? Shouldn’t the glitz and glammmmmm of the NFL returning be over?
F*** No. In the words of the immortal Drake, “I want this shit forever.” Football is back (once again) tonight with the Seattle Seahawks facing off against the LA Rams. I mean, what’s better than Goff on a prime time stage?
All jokes aside, I am really excited to watch tonights game. The Seattle Seahawks front seven has been insane since trading for former Texan Clowney. The secondary is a long way away from the Legion of Boom we know and love, but I do like this Seahawks team a lot.
The Rams offense will always find room to run with McVay the Bae running the show. Gurley will have an average night at best just due to the volume of rushers coming at him, but there should be a nice air attack from Woods, Cooks and Kupp tonight.
On the Seahawks side of the ball, tonight if a night to prove if Chris Carson really is their #1 RB. Aaron Donald is…well…just watch.
Lockett is my go to guy this year in fantasy and has been rewarding my trust with some pretty solid weeks. Lockett most likely will see the lions share of the coverage in the air, but all he needs is one of the magical Russell Wilson break plays to put up some serious points.
Dre says to bench Will Dissly and I like the move, just for a different reason. Dissly has been really good lately, especially against the Steelers in week 2. My big decision to sit? I hate playing guys who are 50/50 on production on Thursday nights. Then, you sit there an entire Friday thinking “Dude…..my team sucks…I lost this week” and there’s nothing worse than that.
My prediciton for tonight? Rams win, 28-23 in a close game.
