Who is going to take control of the division on Thursday Night Football?
The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a big win against another NFC West rival in the Arizona Cardinals.
Quarterback Russell Wilson, an MVP candidate so far this season, completed 22 of 28 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown and running back Chris Carson added 22 carries for 104 yards to help the Seahawks to a 27-10 win.
The newly acquired defensive end Jadeveon Clowney intercepted Cardinals’ rookie quarterback Kyler Murray and returned it for a touchdown.
Seattle hasn't lost at Arizona since 2012. The Seahawks have a 6-0-1 record during that span, including a tie in 2016.
The defending NFC champion Los Angeles Rams will look to bounce back after an abysmal home loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed 45 of 68 passes for a career-high 517 yards, two touchdowns, three interceptions and one lost fumble in a 55-40 loss to the Bucs.
Running back Todd Gurley had five rushes for only 16 yards with two touchdowns in the Rams' non-existent running game.
The Rams will look to get back on track in the quick turnaround against the Seahawks.
Rams Fantasy Star
Robert Woods, WR
Rams wide receiver Robert Woods has been fantastic so far this season. He led Los Angeles with 13 catches for 164 yards in the loss to the Bucs last week.
So far this season, Woods has 26 receptions on 38 targets for 307 yards. He is second on the team in catches and yards but the most intriguing stat for Woods is the fact he has yet to score a touchdown.
The Rams have a great trio of wide receivers with Woods, Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks, so on any given day any of these three wide receivers can have a break-out game.
I’m counting on Woods to get his first touchdown of the season in this game.
Seahawks Fantasy Star
Will Dissly, TE
Through four games, the touchdown leader for the Seattle Seahawks is… Will Dissly.
The Seahawks tight end has been on the receiving end of four touchdowns from quarterback Russell Wilson. Dissly is also second on the team in receptions and third in receiving yards.
Against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, Dissly came down with seven receptions for 57 yards and one score. The previous week against the New Orleans Saints, he had six catches for 62 yards and one touchdown.
Look for Dissly to be on the receiving end of a lot of passes from Wilson in this game.
