UPDATE: Jaron Brown is not playing due to family issues, not due to his knee injury.
Seahawks GM John Schneider pregame: "We'll see (wide receiver) John Ursua -- Jaron Brown had a family situation, we're all praying for him. He's not going to be able to play today. So John Ursua will be up."— Stacy Jo Rost (@StacyRost) January 5, 2020
The Seattle Seahawks will be without wide receiver Jaron Brown for their Wild Card game with the Philadelphia Eagles. Brown was listed as questionable with a knee injury, but was downgraded to out Saturday morning. They are also without wide receiver Malik Turner, who was ruled out due to a concussion.
Seattle will send out Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf as their starters. David Moore will likely open the game as the third receiver, and John Ursua will rotate in as well.
If you are looking down the depth chart for DFS options on Sunday, Ursua at $200 could be a flex option if you want to effectively punt there to invest heavily elsewhere. It will be interesting to see how many lineups drop in a dirt cheap Ursua, hope for the best, and spend plenty on the other five positions.
With a $50,000 salary cap, you can spend $8,333 per player. If you spend $200 on Ursua, you can now spend $9,940 per player for the remaining group. Odds are pretty good Moore gets more targets after Lockett and Metcalf than Ursua, but for the price, maybe it’s worth the risk?
