We got a surprising shootout Monday night between the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills but not all offensive players benefitted.  Let's take a look.

-Those who own Seahawks running back Christine Michael anticipated a decent showing since he has been solid since taking over the starting gig but Monday night was a complete disaster to say the least.  Michael was downright pathetic as he rushed for 1 yards on 5 carries as the Seahawks went almost exclusively in the air.  Luckily for Michael's owners, the one-yard run was a for a touchdown which somewhat saved the day.  Still despite the no-show outing, Michael has generally been a solid RB 2 this season and should continue to do so.

-Robert Woods continues to open eyes in stepping up for an injured Sammy Watkins as he caught 10 passes for 162 yards in the Bills' Monday night loss.  Woods has been around the WR 3 mark since taking over the number 1 receiving role from Watkins and that will be his status going forward as the Bills just don't throw it enough for him to be anything more.

-It was New Orleans Jimmy Graham Monday night as the stud tight end caught 8 passes for 103 yards and 2 scores.  Ever since Graham came back early this year from the awful patellar tendon injury of a year ago, he has been very good and almost nearly as potent as his incredible Saints days. 

-There have been very few good outing for Seahawks QB Russell Wilson this season, a fact we told you would occur this year after a fluky 2015.  Well Wilson did a good job Monday night for those waiting on a late boost to win their matchup as he completed 20-of-26 passes for 282 yards and 2 touchdowns.  He also added a third touchdown on the ground with an additional 10 yards there.  While Wilson has been a bit tough to rely on this season as a whole, he can still be used as a low-end every week passer. 

-Tyrod Taylor did a good joib keeping up with Wilson Monday night as he completed 27-of-38 passes for 289 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.  As often happens with Taylor, the accuracy is good but the TD totals are not so impressive in the run-dominant offense.  That means Taylor remains just a starter in two-QB setups.
