Volpe’s NFL Showdown Plays – 10/2/23: Seahawks at Giants

? Sunday Night Showdown – 10/1/23 ?
Seahawks @ Giants | 8:15 PM EST
Seahawks -2 | Over/Under 47


Only went with one captain last night because I knew Pacheco was the optimal. He fit in the matchup and ownership perfectly. Let’s stay hot tonight! A lot of great matchups against two bad defenses.

Notable News ⭐
  • These defenses rank in the bottom five in the NFL. The Giants have allowed 32.7 PPG and the Seahawks have allowed 29.3 PPG.
  • The Seahawks have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to WRs. (the question will be which Giants WR). Artie Burns, Tre Brown, and Coby Bryant could all be out at corner, making them very beatable again this week. Tariq Woolen has proven he is a top cover corner and he should see 50% of Slayton & Hodgins. 
  • The Giants have the 2nd worst pass blocking O-Line. Can the Giants give Daniel Jones time?
  • The Giants rank 26th in run defense so I do expect Kenneth Walker to have a decent game, Charbonnet getting more touches has me slightly concerned.
  • The Seahawks & Giants only have 4 players each expected to have 20%+ ownership (Geno, Walker, DK, Lockett) (D Jones, Breida, Waller, Slayton)

?Large GPP Plays In Order ?
  1. Robinson – ran 8 routes in his first game back, but had 4 receptions. He is much better than Campbell who is his competition in the slot
  2. Hyatt – he is a legitimate deep threat and the Seahawks are very thin at corner
  3. Charbonnet – he has looked good and has been gaining more touches, but Ken Walker is still getting his touches
  4. Jaxon Smith-Njigba
  5. Parkinson
? Prediction
  • Giants 26-24
? Bets ? (+3.2 units)
  1. Wan’Dale o1.5 receptions – 1 unit
