A pair of NFC teams will clash on Monday Night Football as the Seattle Seahawks travel to face the Washington Football Team. FanDuel Sportsbook currently has Washington as a 1-point underdog against Seattle.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 12 showdown.

Tyler Lockett Fantasy

Start Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks: After a five-week lull, Tyler Lockett has begun to heat up as of late. He's averaged 8.7 targets over his last three games for 18 receptions and 280 yards. Now, he's up against a Washington defense that's been downright awful against opposing wideouts, giving up the fourth-most fantasy points to the position. If the game is as close as oddsmakers are projecting, the Seahawks will need Lockett to be at the top of his game and that should translate into positive fantasy results.

Logan Thomas Fantasy

Start Logan Thomas, TE, Washington Football Team: All signs point to Logan Thomas returning to Washington's lineup this week after being sidelined since Week 4 with a hamstring injury. It's important to remember that he was TE7 before getting injured and scored a touchdown in two of his three games. Seattle is a top-10 team when it comes to fantasy points allowed to tight ends, meaning there's a good chance that Thomas will pick up right from where he left off.

Alex Collins Fantasy

Sit Alex Collins, RB, Seattle Seahawks: Alex Collins has been a fantasy disappointment for the last month or so. He's been RB55 in PPR formats since Week 7, averaging 4.8 points in that stretch, and hasn't recorded a touchdown since Oct. 17. Even if Washington hasn't done a good job at stopping the run this season, it's hard to trust a running back who played only 37% of offensive snaps last week and didn't do much with that opportunity. If you're playing Collins this week, temper expectations.

Curtis Samuel Fantasy

Sit Curtis Samuel, WR, Washington Football Team: Curtis Samuel will also likely return to the lineup for Washington this week after sitting out since Week 5 with a groin injury. Even though the Seahawks are surrendering 28.2 fantasy PPG to wide receivers (19th), you have to remember that Samuel has barely touched the field this year. He's played just 30 snaps in 2021, seeing five targets for four receptions and 19 yards. With his gadget skillset, there's no telling how much or where Washington will use him, which makes him too risky of a pick to recommend starting.
