The Seattle Seahawks (8-4) will look to remain in the race for the NFC West division crown as they host the New York Jets (0-12) in Week 14 NFL action. The Jets will have to pull off a major upset if they want to secure their first win of the season as they are 13.5-point underdogs in this game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.

If you need help with your fantasy football lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for the Week 14 Jets-Seahawks showdown.

Jamison Crowder Fantasy

Start Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets: Jamison Crowder broke out of a small slump in production last week by posting 47 yards on 5 receptions and scoring 2 touchdowns. It was his first time reaching the end zone since Week 9 and he looked like a true No. 1 wide receiver. The matchup in Week 14 couldn't get any better for him as he is facing the dismal Seahawks' pass defense. In fact, Seattle has given up the most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers in the NFL (2,707). Crowder could see upwards of 6-plus targets this week and is a player you can feel comfortable starting in your FLEX spot this week.

Seattle Seahawks D/ST Fantasy

Start Seattle Seahawks D/ST: Almost everyone on the Seahawks offense is worth starting this week, so we'll go a different route here and highlight the great matchup the Seahawks D/ST unit has. While the Seahawks' defense may be inadequate this season, the Jets' offense may be even worse. Seattle is facing a Jets team that is averaging a league-low 15.0 points per game and just a measly 276.8 yards per game. They just cannot sustain long drives and have also thrown 12 interceptions as a team this season, which is tied for the seventh-highest mark in the league. If there was any matchup to stream the Seahawks D/ST, it is this one right here.

Sam Darnold Fantasy

Sit Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets: While the Seahawks' pass defense hasn't been stellar, that does not mean Sam Darnold is a viable starting option at quarterback this week. He has thrown for over 200 yards in just two of his eight games played this season and has just 7 total touchdowns on the season. The Seahawks have 33 sacks on the season (T-No. 6 in the NFL) and have been getting better and better at making the opposing quarterback uncomfortable in the pocket. If you are looking to stream a quarterback this week, avoid Darnold at all costs and look for an option with a much higher floor.

Will Dissly Fantasy

Sit Will Dissly, TE, Seattle Seahawks: When Greg Olsen was placed on the injured reserve with a foot injury, some fantasy football managers thought this would be the time for Will Dissly to step up into a starting role. However, he just hasn't been impressive. Dissly has played the most snaps of any Seattle tight end over the past two weeks, but has just 4 catches for 28 yards. Quarterback Russell Wilson is targeting his wide receivers and running backs much more and that hurts Dissly from a fantasy football perspective. He just isn't seeing enough work to be worth a roster spot right now, let alone a spot in your lineup. If you need to stream a tight end this week, there are a lot of better options.
