The fantasy playoffs have arrived. Up first, we get an NFC West grudge match between the 49ers and the Seahawks. The FullTime Fantasy Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 15 breaks down the fantasy and betting trends you need to know for Thursday night's contest.

San Francisco (9-4) enters this duel riding a 6-game winning streak. The Niners have scored 33-plus points in three of their last four and haven't surrendered more than 17 since Week 7. It's no surprise to see the 49ers as road favorites.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks are reeling. Seattle (7-6) has lost 3-of-4 including two straight as favorites at Lumen Field. For Seattle to keep their NFC playoff hopes alive, this NFC West showdown is a must-win.

San Francisco is favored by 3.5 and the over/under is 43.5

These two teams are eerily similar on offense. Pete Carrol's squad likes to try to establish the run to take shots downfield. Conversely, the 49ers are a balanced attack that can be potent in play-action spots.

The biggest difference...

How will tonight's game go?
