Sunday will feel very differently this week because the nationally televised night game is also included on FanDuel and DraftKings' main slates due to the late TV flex. There's a healthy 54.0-point total on DraftKings Sportsbook for this one, with the Seahawks 3.5-point road favorites. Seattle is one of three teams in the NFL that are undefeated through six weeks, and the only one in the NFC, sitting two games above the 4-2 Cardinals in the NFC West. Both teams love to score points, with the Seahawks' 169 the second-most in the conference heading into Week 7 and the Cardinals the third-most.
While we're expecting a lot of points, fantasy players will have to take firm stands on how they think it'll play out and then pick sides because there's simply no way to afford enough of the players we actually want in a single lineup. That doesn't mean only people who make 150 lineups will be able to come up with the right combination, but we need to get creative with our builds.
Both quarterbacks in this game are very expensive, with Russell Wilson ($12,800 DK, $16,500 FD) the highest-priced player on DraftKings, while he's tied with Kyler Murray ($12,000 DK, $16,500) on FanDuel. They are the obvious places to start any lineup in a game that's expected to have a lot of points, but taking both of them on FanDuel accounts for 45.0 percent of the salary cap, while they cost 49.6 percent as flex plays on
