Seahawks-49ers Thursday night fantasy recap

Week 7 kicked off with a Thursday Night Football affair in Santa Clara. Not too long ago, the Seahawks and 49ers were playing for the right to go to the Super Bowl. This week both teams were playing for their season. Life comes at you fast. This wasn't pretty to watch and the fantasy results weren't too aesthetically pleasing, either.

Top performers:
» Marshawn Lynch, RB: 122 yards, 1 TD, 18.20 fantasy points

» Seahawks D/ST: 6 sacks, 3 points allowed, 13.00 fantay points
» Russell Wilson, QB: 235 pass yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, 20 rush yards, 11.40 fantasy points
» 49ers D/ST: 5 sacks, 2 INT, 20 points allowed, 10.00 fantasy points

» Colin Kaepernick, QB: 124 pass yards, 4.96 fantasy points

Of all the football games you've ever watched ... that was one of them. Russell Wilson apparently can't stand prosperity. Despite carving up the 49ers for most of the first half, the Seahawks quarterback made a couple of really poor throws that led to interceptions -- including one in the end zone. After looking as though he could post a big number, he instead finished with fewer than 12 points. It was a nice night for Tyler Lockett with 13.90 points. Too bad only two percent of users actually saw any benefit from it. Marshawn Lynch started the night by liquidating his pregame meal but by the end of the night, he left the Niners with upset stomachs after 122 rush yards and a touchdown. Beast Mode indeed. The defense was arguably the most productive option on Thursday night with six sacks -- 3.5 of them from Michael Bennett.

For as little as the Seahawks did on offense, the Niners did far less. The good news for Colin Kaepernick is that he didn't throw an interception. The bad news is that he didn't really do much of anything besides be generally erratic and under pressure. That lack of production was extended to his pass-catchers who were equally underwhelming. But hey, there was a Vernon Davis sighting! Carlos Hyde struggled through another poor performance with just 40 rushing yards. The Niners defense was another defense that made hay running through Seattle's sieve-like offensive line. Thankfully for all involved, this one has come to an end.
