Tyeler Davison, Nose Tackle

Davison’s play along the interior line has been uneven at best this year, but the “Rhino” from Fresno State still shows a lot of potential to be a fixture at defensive tackle.

He needs to be this week. The Seattle running game is not what it has been when “Beast Mode”, Marshawn Lynch, was in his prime.

Still, the Seahawks running game with Christian Micheal will turn the Saints afternoon into a nightmare if not contained.

With Seattle QB Russell Wilson still hobbled by lingering knee and ankle injuries, you can fully expect the Seahawks to run early and often in this one — and the Saints will be counting on Davison among others, to meet the challenge of stopping them.
