The Seattle Seahawks are looking like one of the best teams in the NFL in 2020 and have a 3-0 record thanks to MVP frontrunner Russell Wilson, and they’ll look to continue their dominance against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.
Seattle has been horrendous defending against the pass, but have also been one of the best run-stopping teams in football . The Dolphins team balance the run and the pass pretty evenly, but could be forced to let Ryan Fitzpatrick air the ball out more in this matchup. Can Wilson extend his streak of games with at least four passing touchdowns against Miami? it seems like he has solid shot at keeping his hot streak going against a Dolphins, who could be without Byron Jones because of a groin injury.

Fantasy football start/sit advice
Russell Wilson, Quarterback
This one is a no-brainer. Wilson has thrown for at least four touchdowns in every game this season and will be up against a thin Dolphins secondary. Wilson has run through every defense he’s faced and is in MVP form. Don’t expect the Dolphins to slow him down.
Tyler Lockett, Wide receiver
The second most lethal option on the Seahawks is a toss up between Lockette and DK Metcalf. I’d role with Lockett because he makes more catches and appears to be the go-to-guy in the red zone. Lockett has better chemistry with Wilson and hauls in a high percentage of the balls thrown to him.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Quarterback
Fitzpatrick has throw for four touchdowns and rushed for one with no interceptions in his last two games. The Seahawks haven’t exactly been good defending against the pass, so don’t be surprised if they give up chunk plays through the air. Seattle appears to be destined for shootouts every week.
Miles Gaskin, Running back
It’s only a matter of time before Gaskin reaches the end zone. Miami’s favorite gadget player eats up touches carrying the ball, and catching passes out of the backfield. He has twice as many rushing yards (152) as any other Dolphin and is among the team leaders in targets.
