Expect the Seahawks to put pressure on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers with defensive ends Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Frank Clark plus former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, who was acquired from the New York Jets on Sep. 1, although it might not matter.
Rodgers led the league with a 90.3 passer rating under pressure last season with a 13-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio, per Pro Football Focus, and will have the eighth-best offensive line in front of him in 2017.

The LA Clippers made the news (and this space) last week when their game against the Houston Rockets got chippy enough for the tension to spill into the locker rooms after the game. However, very quietly, the Clippers have been making noise on the court as well, winning six of their last seven and 10 of their last 13 games overall. In the process, they’ve become surprisingly fantasy friendly and therefore worth spending a bit of time with to start the week.

Last week, several of my ESPN Fantasy co-writers debated whether they would rather have Williams or Kyle Lowry for the rest of the season. This would have been an unheard of comparison to start the season, when Lowry had an ADP of 28 and Williams had Adam Vinatieri Jersey an ADP of 94.4.
In a losing effort in the Sugar Bowl, Daniel made an impact in all three phases of defense, as he pressured Jalen Hurts, made a few stops near the line of scrimmage on run plays and covered relatively well. O’Daniel is ultra-reliable, not a flashy player, and at 6-1 and 220 pounds he runs as well as any outside linebacker in the country. Some defensive coordinator is going to love giving O’Daniel a variety of roles in he NFL.
Key has Myles Garrett-ian size, athleticism and pass-rushing skills. It’s just that he rarely puts everything together. Injuries played a role in 2017 after he was a monster in 2016 for the Tigers.
Kids Odell Beckham Jr Jersey Andrews didn’t get loose against Georgia, as he only caught four of seven targets for 52 yards. Still, at his size with his movement skills in the open field, Andrews is the prototypical, modern-day tight end in the NFL.
