Sit: Dallas Goedert, TE (Philadelphia Eagles)

Touchdowns have stopped tight end Dallas Goedert from being an elite Fantasy option at his position in the past and they still are in 2023. The 28-year-old has posted double-digit PPR Fantasy points in just two of his 10 games played. Those performances line up with his two touchdowns scored.

It's something to consider ahead of Week 15 as the Seahawks are one of only 11 NFL teams to allow three or fewer touchdowns to tight ends this year. Having veteran linebackers like Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks roaming across the end zone to cover large pass-catchers is a distinct advantage.

There are a lot of mouths to feed in the Philly offense and the chance as mentioned earlier to get the ground game going could limit Goedert's role even more. Fantasy production isn't always exemplified by players doing their job on the field. This game could be an example of that. There are more dependable TE options out there than Dallas will be this week.

Sit: Zach Charbonnet, RB (Seattle Seahawks)

The return of running back Kenneth Walker II in Week 14 caused Zach Charbonnet's snap count to dip under the 50% mark for the first time since October. The rookie was also held to one reception despite the game never truly getting out of reach. It was not an inspiring workload to say the least.

That's a problem heading into a clash against Philadelphia seeing as how the Eagles give up the sixth-fewest rushing yards per game in the league (94.0) and just 6.5 yards per reception to opposing backs. A running back has scored a touchdown only five total times against the Eagles in 13 games.

Seattle has posted the fifth-highest passing play percentage in the NFL as well and could get starting quarterback Geno Smith back from injury. All signs point to a game where the Seahawks force the Eagles secondary to make plays, so Charbonnet's floor is too low to be a Fantasy starter as a result.
