NFL Game Previews: Week 2 Matchups

This article is part of our NFL Game Previews series.

Seattle (+3) at Chicago, 43.5 o/u – Monday, 8:15 p.m. EDT

The Story: Oh boy. A Seahawks offensive line that let Russell Wilson get sacked six times in Week 1 now has to face an extremely motivated Khalil Mack. What's worse, Wilson will be without his favorite target in Doug Baldwin, and somehow unheralded rookie tight end Will Dissly doesn't seem like a viable replacement. That's not to say this game is a lost cause, of course. Chicago already coughed up a lead to an elite quarterback this year, so why not do it again? Mitchell Trubisky crashed back to earth hard after an impressive opening drive, and having Matt Nagy call the shots may not be an instant fix for the Bears offense after all.

The Skinny:
SEA injuries: WR Baldwin (doubtful, knee); LB Bobby Wagner (questionable, groin); LB K.J. Wright (doubtful, knee)
CHI injuries: none
SEA DFS chalk: none
CHI DFS chalk: none
SEA DFS tournament plays: none
CHI DFS tournament plays: Taylor Gabriel (SEA 31st in DVOA vs. WR2 in 2017, allowed Emmanuel Sanders to go 10-135-1 in Week 1)
Weather forecast: clear, temperature in the mid-70s, less than 10 mph wind, zero percent chance of rain

The Scoop: Chris Carson picks up 70 yards. Wilson throws for 270 yards and TDs to Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown. Jordan Howard rumbles for 100 yards and a score. Trubisky throws for 230 yards and touchdowns
