Okwuegbunam, who was slowed by a hip injury late in training camp, played 15 snaps against the Falcons and was injured on his only target (and reception) of the game. On a seven-yard catch, Okwuegbunam was tackled by cornerback A.J. Terrell and defensive tackle Jacob Tuioti-Mariner. It appeared that Okwuegbunam’s right knee planted into the turf awkwardly. Fant and Vannett will look to lead the way at TE, with Fant the guy to own on fantasy teams.
SEA TE Nick Vannett - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at Carolina Panthers
Nick Vannett has only two catches the last two weeks and although he has a couple scores in recent weeks, his value has dropped. He will face the Panthers in a great matchup. Carolina is 30th in aFPA to tight ends. However, the recent production by Vannett limits his value. He should remain on the bench for Week 12.
