Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
With the Panthers often playing from behind, it has been easier for defenses to focus on and slow CMC down. That being said, his floor is still much higher than many players' ceilings, so he is a locked in RB1 week in and week out. The matchup against Seattle also shouldn't scare you. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After scoring at least one touchdown in 9-of-10 games to start the season, McCaffrey has now scored in just one of the last four games, though he's kept his fantasy totals afloat while racking up the yardage. The hope for a 1,000/1,000 season still has hope, as he now needs to average 91.3 receiving yards over the final three games. While unlikely, it's neat to think it's possible. It certainly doesn't hurt that the Seahawks have allowed 7.30 yards per target to running backs, which ranks as the seventh-most in the league. The concern has come up that the Panthers may rest McCaffrey down the stretch with nothing to play for, but after seeing him play 70-of-71 snaps last week, you shouldn't be concerned. The Seahawks have played against seven running backs who've seen 18-plus touches. Each of them totaled at least 16.2 PPR points, while five of them broke the 20-point barrier. Based on overall opportunity, the Seahawks have allowed 0.94 PPR points per opportunity, which ranks sixth behind only the Panthers, Jaguars, Texans, Lions, and Chiefs. You'd play him in DFS cash games every chance you got against those defenses, so why not against the Seahawks this week? 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Seahawks are 16th against fantasy running backs, but McCaffrey is an elite fantasy running back against any matchup.
