Monday Night Football DFS Breakdown: Seahawks vs. 49ers

This article is part of our Showdown/Single Game DFS Breakdown series.

The 7-2 Seahawks head to San Francisco Santa Clara for a tough divisional matchup against the undefeated 49ers, with the home team a 6.0-point favorite in a game a solid 47.5-point total on FanDuel Sportsbook. Seattle's offense has been carrying them, for the most part, scoring at least 27 points in all but two games, and while the Niners' defense has been a big focus this season, holding opponents to 13 points or less six times in eight games, they haven't struggled putting points on the board themselves, dropping 24 in all but two games.

QUARTERBACKS

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ($11,400 DK, $16,000 FD) is the most expensive player on both sites, if for no other reason than he leads the NFL with 22 passing touchdowns and just one interception, while his 2,505 passing yards are third overall, with league-leader Tom Brady already playing 10 games versus Wilson's nine. Additionally, Wilson is sixth in rushing yards among quarterbacks and only three have rushed for more touchdowns. While they have a solid running game, Wilson is the key to the offense and the easiest play for those who want exposure to the Seahawks. However, the 49ers have allowed the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks on FanDuel (tied with the Patriots for fewest per game), while New England is the only team to give up fewer points to quarterbacks on DraftKings.

Meanwhile, the 49ers don't rely on Jimmy Garoppolo ($11,000 DK, $15,000 FD) nearly as much, as they've attempted the fewest passes
