The Seahawks (7-3) got back on track after a 28-21 defeat of the Arizona Cardinals last week. Russell Wilson was very efficient, completing 23 of 28 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 42 yards, but Seattle’s best runner was Carlos Hyde, who finished with 79 yards and a TD on 14 totes. DK Metcalf should have had an absolutely massive box score, but because of penalties and drops, he was left with just three receptions, 46 yards and one score. Tyler Lockett held on to all nine of his targets en route to a 9-67-1 stat line.
The Eagles (3-6-1) are flailing after losing their last two games. With Washington’s win on Thanksgiving, Philly has now fallen out of first place in the NFC East. Carson Wentz put together his usual mixed bag of impressive throws and head-scratching errors during the Eagles’ Week 11 loss in rainy Cleveland. He ended that game with 235 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Miles Sanders ran for 66 yards on 16 carries but also lost a fumble inside the Browns’ 5-yard line. Tight end Dallas Goedert was Wentz’s best receiving outlet; he caught five of six targets for 55 yards and a score. Jalen Reagor — four receptions, 52 yards — was the team’s most productive wideout.

Fantasy football start/sit advice
Chris Carson, RB, $6,000
This finally appears to be the week when Carson gets back on the field. He has sat out the past four games because of a foot injury. The Seahawks have never been shy about giving Carson a big workload, for better or for worse and even though Philly ranks among the top five toughest matchups for RBs, according to DraftKings, Carson is a bit of a bargain here at a season-low price.
DK Metcalf, WR, 7,900
What was a 13-point fantasy day for Metcalf in Week 11 could have reached upwards of 30 points. He saw a good throw for a short touchdown clank off his facemask. He had a 41-yard gain called back by a suspect holding penalty. He dropped a short pass that could have gone for 20-plus yards. He drew a pass interference flag about 45 yards downfield. So, coming off a two-game stretch in which he was credited for just five receptions and 74 yards, Metcalf might go absolutely ballistic against the Eagles.
Travis Fulgham, WR, $5,100
One month ago, a matchup against Seattle would have had Fulgham’s owners salivating. But after consecutive games with only one catch, and with Goedert, Reagor and even Alshon Jeffery eating up targets, Fulgham is very difficult to trust. His only saving graces are that he is still playing a wide majority of the snaps, and his seven targets in Week 11 were a team-high. But even at this low price, he probably isn’t worth it.
Jalen Reagor, WR, $4,400
Reagor, however, might be a popular play because of his field-stretching abilities in a matchup with the defense that has allowed 43 receptions of 20 yards or more, second-most in the NFL. The rookie seems to be building some chemistry with Wentz after back-to-back four-reception weeks. He has the upside to be a huge value at this price.
