Pro Football Focus: DraftKings Showdown: Seahawks vs. 49ers
The changing DFS and fantasy football landscape is shifting toward single-game contests. At DraftKings, the biggest is their Showdown Captain Mode format. The format blends the ease of focusing on a single game with the ability to differentiate yourself from the competition by choosing a total of six players.The biggest wrinkle of the format is the ability to choose one captain, who costs and is scored at 1.5x the standard values. The CPT designation opens up another layer of strategy while exponentially increasing the number of possible lineup combinations, which is important for reducing duplicate winners and split prizes.

Field Gulls: Stopping the run to be key Monday
With the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers set to face off Monday evening in what has the makings of a fantastic primetime matchup, we took a look Sunday at how the two teams have fared defending the pass against the six common opponents they have faced so far. Against those opponents the two defenses have surrendered very similar numbers of touchdowns and snagged a comparable number of interceptions, while the 49ers defense has posted far better rate stats. The second part of the puzzle is, obviously, how each of these teams stacks up against the run.
Field Gulls: Pete Carroll hints about future of center position
It was two weeks ago Sunday that the offensive line of the Seattle Seahawks was dealt a big blow when center Justin Britt went down with a knee injury against the Atlanta Falcons. It did not take long for reports to surface that the injury was likely severe, concerns that were quickly confirmed. Britt, of course, has since had reconstructive surgery, and will not set foot on the field again this season.In addition, with Britt set to carry the third largest cap hit of any center in the NFL in 2020 and the team able to save $8.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer: NFL ICYMI: Not only is Lamar Jackson a QB, he might be MVP
Lamar Jackson now owns a signature moment -- a spin-and-make-'em-miss 47-yard TD run that was something straight out of a video game.And Jackson also now owns his signature stat -- a perfect passer rating in two games during the same season, something only one other player in league history has accomplished.
This guy wasn't supposed to be a QB? Ludicrous, of course. He might very well be this season's NFL MVP.
The 22-year-old Jackson keeps showing off what he can do in his second season with the Baltimore Ravens, with plays designed and called by offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who did fine work a while back with a guy by the name of Colin Kaepernick.

Clay: Despite the fact that Wilson has gone over this mark in five of his nine games this season, he's a strong candidate to fall short in Week 10.
The Seattle Times: Analysis: Here's what's on the line for the Seahawks against the 49ers on Monday Night Football
RENTON -- If only the Seahawks played defense on the field as consistently well as their coach, Pete Carroll, did this week against the idea that Monday's game against the 49ers is more meaningful than any other.On paper, Seattle's game against the undefeated 49ers at Levi's Stadium is as appetizing as any in recent Monday Night Football history.
To cite one stat, the winning percentage of the two teams (the 49ers are 8-0, Seattle is 7-2, for a combined 88.2%) is the third best in any game in MNF history played in week 10 or later.

The Seattle Times: Seahawks-49ers predictions: Seattle Times writes make their picks for Monday Night Football
49ers 28, Seahawks 17. This is a real prove-it game for both teams. The NFL world is now accepting the 49ers as for real, while pointing out that San Francisco has beaten only two teams that currently have winning records (the Rams and Carolina, but having done so in impressive fashion, by a combined 51 points). Seattle likewise has gotten to 7-2 beating only one team that currently has a winning record (the Rams in a last-second thriller). What might be the most raucous home-field edge the 49ers have had since moving to Santa Clara in 2014 will help SF draw first blood in the battle for the NFC West.
Fansided: Seahawks need Chris Carson to be Beast Mode-esque versus 49ers
Seahawks offensive coordinator is having a good season calling plays. He usually does not get much credit and sometimes criticism of his game plan is right and good. Take Seattle's loss to the Cowboys in the playoffs last year when Schottenheimer came into the game with a too-conservative game plan and then failed to adjust until late in the game.All that said, my fear is that Schottenheimer will decide Seattle needs to run the ball a lot during the opening part of week 10 against the 49ers. Versus the Buccaneers in week 9, the Seahawks threw often and early and while they didn't score a lot of points early, they set the tone for a game that eventually ended with a victory.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Josh Gordon on track for debut with Seahawks
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Josh Gordon didn't know where he'd land following his release from the New England Patriots last week. He did have one place in particular he wanted to end up.Gordon said Friday that he hoped he'd have a chance to play with Russell Wilson and that the two of them had long discussed the idea of playing together some day.
"Me and Russ have been talking about it for a little while behind the scenes how nice it would be but here I am," Gordon said. "I admire his game. I think maybe he respected mine mutually.
Field Gulls: The 49ers defense hasn't been tested by any elite quarterbacks
When the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers face off Monday night at Levi's in a matchup with significant implications going forward for both the NFC West and NFC in general, the game will feature the number seven scoring offense against the number two scoring defense. The Niners defense, surrendering just 12.8 points per game through the first half of the season, has made a name as it has challenged numbers put up by historic defenses to this point in the season.However, as fans have been quick to point out, Russell Wilson will be far and away the best quarterback the Niners defense will have faced, as the 49ers have not exactly faced a murderer's row of quarterbacks.
Field Gulls: Seahawks post relatively clean injury report ahead of Monday night showdown
It's the back half of the NFL season, which means rosters are beginning to show the tolls of attrition and the outlook for playoff races is starting to form. For the Seattle Seahawks, that means a quick trip to take on the San Francisco 49ers in a primetime game with significant implications for not only the NFC West division, but NFC Wild Card positioning as well.With playoff implications as large as they are for this game, the Seahawks are about as healthy as a team can be heading into the back half of the season, and while there are a lot of names included on the injury report, every starter is expected to be able to play.
