It’s time to play fantasy football online at FanPicks.com now.

The Seattle Seahawks will look to regroup as they travel down south to face NFC West division rivals the San Francisco 49ers. There seemed to be somewhat of a blowup between the Seahawks secondary, which has been building for some weeks now. Communication and assignment breakdowns have been well-documented in 2015 for the defending NFC Champions.

San Francisco is coming off back-to-back good games on the offensive side of the football. The schedule has been a huge help, as the 49ers have played bad passing defensive teams in the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants on back-to-back weeks.

The 49ers had difficulty putting up points on the Seattle defense. In their two meetings in 2014, the 49ers put up seven points in Seattle and just three points at home. These two teams know each other very well. San Francisco sits near the bottom of the league in total offense.

Look for the Seahawks to continue their mastery against the San Francisco offense in this spot.

The Oakland Raiders are traveling off their bye week to face the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers in 2015 are doing what they did in 2014 and that is putting the entire offense on the shoulders of Phillip Rivers.

San Diego has played much better at home putting up 28 points per game. Rivers last week at Green Bay threw for 503 yards and two touchdowns. He has thrown for 358 yards or better in his past three games.

Oakland enters town with a very poor passing defense as they allow 299 yards passing per game. Look for Rivers to exploit that Raiders weakness.

Play QB Phillip Rivers

 

The Miami Dolphins look like a motivated team since the coaching change.

The run game finally got going and that is the formula for the team to have success in the passing game.

Lamar Miller had his best game of the year, rushing for 113 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown. He ran for 5.9 yards per carry and gave a peek of his 2014 form where he ran for 1099 yards.

Play RB Lamar Miller 

 

The New Orleans Saints are on the road to meet the Indianapolis Colts. This is one of those NFC versus AFC matchups that fantasy draft GM’s like to isolate. Usually defenders have difficulties in this spot keeping with top flight receivers because since they meet just once every four years there is not familiarity with style, moves and formations from the opposing offense.

The New Orleans Saints are a bad defensive team. They will be playing in an opposing dome which will make communication very difficult. The Saints are allowing 32 points per game in their three road games this season.

Look for T.Y. Hilton to exploit this weak Saints pass defense. He averaged 17.6 yards per catch with his five receptions last week at Houston and is very due for a touchdown reception. Hilton makes big plays on Sunday and bet on a monster performance in this spot.

Play WR T.Y. Hilton

 

The Atlanta Falcons will hit the road to meet the Tennessee Titans.

The Falcons look to bounce back from their first loss of the year as they are beaten at the New Orleans Saints on a Thursday night.

Tennessee looked poor defending the run last week. Atlanta is a dynamic offense that will force the Titans to guard against deep throws. This will open up running lanes for Falcons running back Devonta Freeman who is running for nearly five yards a carry this year.

Play RB Devonta Freeman
