Monday Night Football
Seattle @ Philadelphia
Team Totals: Seahawks 27.5, Eagles 21.5
Lagging far behind Patrick Mahomes in the NFL MVP race at this point, Russell Wilson on Monday night faces a Philadelphia defense that has drawn one of the league’s softest quarterback schedules yet still permitted top-12 QB1 finishes in six of its last nine games. Only the 49ers have given up more QB rushing yards than the Eagles, especially notable since Wilson is averaging 36.7 rushing yards per game, second most of his career. In a game I believe should sail over its 49-point total, Wilson remains a top-five fantasy quarterback play despite his recent downturn in box-score results. … Quietly working in Wilson’s favor is the return of Chris Carson (foot), who adds an all-purpose element Seattle’s other backs lack after averaging 4.2 catches over the ‘Hawks’ opening five games, a timespan during which Wilson ranked No. 1 in fantasy QB scoring.
