This week we take a look at some fantasy players to watch in the matchup between the Colts and Seahawks on Sunday Night Football.

You may be holding a big lead, or facing a huge deficit in your weekly fantasy football game by the time Sunday Night Football rolls around. Here are a few players that can help you pick up the win this week in fantasy.

Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton

The Seahawks are known for their strong pass defense, but according to Football Outsiders they rank 21st against opponent’s number-one wide receivers this season.

Hilton was held to less than 60 yards receiving in the first two games of the season as he looked lost without Andrew Luck in the lineup.

However, T.Y. found a connection with new quarterback Jacoby Brissett last week as he exploded for 153 yards on 7 catches with a 61-yard touchdown. Hilton is a boom-or-bust option, but his upside is high this week.

Quarterback Russell Wilson

Wilson has thrown for 729 yards with 5 TD’s and 0 INT’s in the first three games of the season, and he’s a solid fantasy play for this week.

The Colts’ pass defense gave up over 300 yards in their first two games, and Wilson has the ability to put up those type of numbers this week.

Wide Receiver Paul Richardson

Richardson has garnered the third-most targets for the Seahawks this season as Russell Wilson is looking for him more and more in the passing game.

Doug Baldwin is banged up this week, and Richardson could be Seattle’s number-one option on the outside.
