After much confusion last week over the Seattle Seahawks backfield, it was veteran Travis Homer who came out on top as the lead ball carrier. With Kenneth Walker’s status up in the air for the second-straight game, can Homer be trusted in the first round of fantasy football playoffs?
Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks RB Travis Homer
Homer answered fantasy managers’ questions in the 30-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 14. He was the player to start, despite his poor rushing production with nine carries for 26 yards and zero touchdowns. Tony Jones Jr. was the only other running back on the roster to carry the ball, which he did only once. Against a monster San Francisco 49ers run defense on a short week, the production will only get worse.
Simply put, the Seattle backfield is going to be highly unpredictable unless Walker plays. In this case, Homer and the remaining RBs will have zero value moving forward.
Start or sit in Week 15?
Closely monitor the medical reports of each member of the backfield leading up to kickoff on Thursday night. Homer would likely be first in line to receive touches if Walker and DeeJay Dallas are sidelined once again.
