Week 15's Eagles vs. Seahawks showdown on Monday Night Football is loaded with Fantasy options for every manager out there.

The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Lumen Field in Week 15 aiming to get back in the win column, while the Seattle Seahawks enter looking to stay alive in the NFC playoff race. Fantasy managers will have their eyes set on this one as stars like quarterback Jalen Hurts and wide receiver DK Metcalf take the field.

Those same managers are the ones tasked with making crucial decisions on who to put in their lineup and who to keep on the bench. Let's dive into some start/sit options for this impactful NFC battle.

Start: D'Andre Swift, RB (Philadelphia Eagles)

There's no denying that running back D'Andre Swift's production hasn't been up to par over the last two weeks. That stems from a lack of touches and negative game scripts more than it does anything else, though. Fantasy managers need to trust him in Week 15 with what is an outstanding matchup.

If there is one thing the Seahawks have struggled to do, it has been defending the run. Seattle ranks among the bottom 10 teams in the NFL when it comes to yards allowed per carry (4.4) and rushing yards allowed per game (123.4). It has also given up the second-most rushing touchdowns to opposing backs (14).

Swift has seen every red zone touch among Philly running backs over the last four weeks, so his chances of barreling into the end zone on Monday night are quite high. That trend alone makes him worth starting in a FLEX spot and his Fantasy ceiling climbs if the Eagles can build an early lead.
