  • Seahawks To Take A Quarterback In This Year's Draft?

    Headshot for Drew Lock

    Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider has taken only two quarterbacks in his first 14 drafts with the team -- Russell Wilson in the third round in 2012 and Alex McGough in the seventh round in 2018. However, Schneider characterized this year's QB class as "a good group" and noted that he'd like to break the trend of not selecting QBs in the draft. "I've told you guys in the past and having grown up in the Packer organization for Ron Wolfe, 14 drafts and only drafting two quarterbacks is not something that we're necessarily proud of. It's just happened that way. Every year it's a goal to acquire a quarterback, whether that's draft free agency, whatever it looks like. But, yeah, this year's draft class is a cool group. A lot of variances in there," Schneider said. Seattle doesn't seem all that committed to Geno Smith, and Drew Lock is a free agent this offseason.

  • Geno Smith In The Team's Plans For Now

    Headshot for Geno Smith

    Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said on Tuesday that quarterback Geno Smith is the team's starter "until he's not," when asked whether Smith is the team's starter "right now." Smith is coming off an uneven 2023 season and has two years left on his three-year, $75 million deal he signed last March. His $12.7 million base salary for next season became fully guaranteed when the team kept him on their roster past Feb. 16. However, it's believed Seattle would still think about a possible trade. If they were to trade Smith, they'd assume $27 million in dead money, but a new team could acquire him for only $12.9 million next season. The 33-year-old won Comeback Player of the Year in 2022 but was merely average last season. If Smith isn't traded, he'll remain Seattle's starting QB entering the 2024 season and will be best viewed as a QB2 in fantasy.

    Headshot for Geno Smith

    The Seattle Seahawks restructured quarterback Geno Smith's contract on Thursday, converting his $9.6 million roster bonus into a signing bonus and creating $4.8 million in 2024 salary cap space, according to a source. The Seahawks made the call to bring Smith back for the 2024 season when they decided to keep him on the roster in the middle of this month when his $12.7 million base salary became guaranteed. Seattle could move on from the 33-year-old veteran next year if he disappoints in 2024, as he won't have any guarantees in the final year of his deal. Smith regressed a bit after a career year in 2022 with the Seahawks, and he finished with 3,624 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 15 starts. Expecting him to return to his 2022 level would be foolish, although Smith can pass as a high-end QB2 as long as he stays healthy in 2024.

    The Seattle Seahawks are expected to hire Charles London as their new quarterbacks coach for the 2024 season. The 48-year-old most recently served as the Tennessee Titans' QBs coach and passing-game coordinator last year. He will now join offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb and pass-game coordinator Jake Peetz to help lead the Seahawks offense. He'll be working closely with Geno Smith, who had a breakout season in 2022. London started his NFL coaching career as an offensive quality control coach with the Chicago Bears from 2007-09 and was also a scout for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010 and an offensive assistant with the Titans in 2011. He then coached the Texans running backs from 2014-17 and the Bears RBs from 2018-20 before joining the Falcons as their QBs coach from 2021-22.

The 33-year-old veteran has two years and $75 million left on his three-year deal that he signed last offseason. After leading the league with a 69.8 completion percentage in 2022 while throwing for a career-high 4,282 yards and 30 touchdowns, Smith regressed a bit in 2023.

    The Seattle Seahawks hired former University of Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb as their new offensive coordinator on Friday. Grubb recently accepted the same position at Alabama, but he will now head to the NFL instead. He spent the last two years as the offensive coordinator for the Huskies under current Alabama head coach Kalen DeBoer, running a pass-heavy offense that ranked sixth in college football in yards per game (487) and sixth in scoring (36.7) in that span. The Huskies led the FBS in passing yards per game (355.8) the last two seasons. The job in Seattle will be Grubb's first in the NFL, and he's expected to bring Alabama offensive line coach Scott Huff with him to the Seahawks. In Washington, Grubb also served as the quarterbacks coach and will spend a lot of time with Geno Smith heading into the 2024 campaign.

  • Seahawks Have Upcoming Decision On Geno Smith

    Headshot for Geno Smith

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith, 33, has two years left on the three-year, $75 million contract extension he signed last March after being named to the Pro Bowl and winning the league's Comeback Player of the Year award, but Seattle could move on from him this offseason with non-prohibitive salary cap penalties. They would incur $17.4 million in dead money, either by cutting Smith before his $12.7 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed on Feb. 16, or by trading him before March 17. Conventional wisdom suggests the Seahawks will likely keep Smith for at least another year and see if a new coaching staff can get more out of him after a down season in 2023. The 33-year-old veteran had the best QBR over the final six weeks, but he also missed time with injuries and his production dipped across the board from 2022. Losing Pete Carroll as his head coach could hurt Smith the most, but he'll still serve as a high-end QB2 for fantasy managers if he stays in Seattle.

Carroll will end his time in Seattle with a 137-89-1 regular season record, a 10-9 postseason record, two trips to the Super Bowl, and one Super Bowl victory. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Carroll could remain with the organization in a different role, but he will no longer lead the franchise.

  • Geno Smith Leads Another Game-Winning Drive

    Headshot for Geno Smith

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith went 16-for-28 for 189 passing yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Smith also gained 28 rushing yards on three carries in the game. Smith was under heavy pressure throughout the contest and had difficulty syncing up with his receivers. Still, Smith once again led a game-winning drive on the Seahawks' last drive of the game, the fifth time this season he has done so. Smith connected with wide receiver Tyler Lockett for a 34-yard touchdown with 1:54 left on the clock. Smith then went back to Lockett to secure the go-ahead two-point conversion. Even with the win, the Seahawks will not advance to the playoffs as their chances were dependent also on a Green Bay Packers loss. Having signed a three-year contract with the Seahawks in March, Smith will likely return as the starter in 2024 and will end the season with 3,624 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 15 games.

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith posted a decent line in a losing effort in Week 17. Facing the Pittsburgh Steelers, he completed 23-of-33 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown and took three carries for 33 yards on the ground. Sitting on the playoff bubble, Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals is a must-win game for the Seahawks. Arizona's completion percentage allowed of 69.25% is the second-worst mark in the league and the team has allowed eight passing touchdowns in the last three weeks. Several regularly starting quarterbacks will be on the bench for the NFL season finale pushing Smith up the QB ranks. With a thinner field and a soft opponent, Smith is looking like a viable DFS pick and could play his way into low-end QB1 territory in an effort to secure a playoff berth for Seattle.

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith completed 23 of 33 pass attempts for 290 yards and a touchdown in their 30-23 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also added 33 yards on the ground on three carries, including one rush that went for a season-high gain of 25 yards. Smith found receiver DK Metcalf for big gains of 33, 32, and 21 yards and finished with eight completions that went for 15 yards or more. Smith held his own against the Steelers' aggressive pass rush until he fell victim to a strip sack midway through the fourth quarter, his one miscue of the day. The 33-year-old regained his composure on the Seahawks' final drive of the game, completing six consecutive pass attempts but failed to connect on his final three shots at the end zone. For fantasy managers playing through to Week 18, Smith should fare well in Seattle's season finale against the Arizona Cardinals.

    After missing two starts due to injury, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was back in action in Week 16, completing 25 of 36 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans. It was a solid performance but felt lacking against an exploitable secondary, especially since Smith shredded the Dallas Cowboys for 334 yards and three touchdowns in his last outing in Week 13. On Sunday he will face a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that has allowed eight touchdowns through the air in the last four weeks, tied for third-most in the league. Wide receiver DK Metcalf (back) is listed as questionable which could hamper the passing game, though Tyler Lockett and Jaxon Smith-Njigba (knee) are formidable threats in their own right. Smith should shape up to be a QB2 in Week 17.

It was Smith's first game back after missing Seattle's last two contests due to a groin injury sustained in practice ahead of Week 14. Smith did not take many shots downfield but looked in control in his return. Smith captained a 96-yard drive that bridged the third and fourth quarters to deliver Seattle's first touchdown of the game. On their next possession, Smith connected with tight end Colby Parkinson for the go-ahead touchdown with a minute left on the clock, mirroring the late-game heroics from Drew Lock and Jaxon Smith-Njigba in Week 15. Smith's fantasy season ends on New Year's Eve against the Pittsburgh Steelers who just gave up 335 yards to Jason Browning.

The 33-year-old veteran will look to keep the good times rolling after throwing for 300-plus yards and a season-high three touchdowns in the team's Week 13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Smith hasn't had as good of a season in 2023 as he did last year, but he should still be considered a decent midrange QB2 with his return on the horizon this Sunday.

The 33-year-old hasn't been nearly as good for Seattle as he was in 2022, but he still represents a decent high-floor QB2 option for fantasy managers now that he appears to be past his groin injury.

As long as the 33-year-old veteran doesn't suffer any setbacks with his injured groin this week in practice, he will send Lock back to the bench this weekend. Smith has dealt with injuries in 2023 and hasn't been nearly as effective as he was in 2022, but he did have 300-plus passing yards in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys with a season-high three touchdowns. If he's back in Week 16, he'll be a high-end QB2 in fantasy in a middling matchup against Tennessee.

"Yeah," Carroll said. "Geno's our starter." Smith missed the Week 14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and was questionable to play on Monday. He looked good in pre-game warmups before Monday's game, but Carroll decided to roll with Lock in fear that Smith would have a setback with his groin if he played.

The 33-year-old will return after missing the Week 14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Smith threw for over 300 yards and a season-high three touchdowns in his last game in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys, so he'll be looking to keep the good times rolling. He's unlikely to be 100 percent healthy while playing through his groin injury, but the matchup is a good one, as the Eagles defense has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs in 2023.

Smith is going to be a true game-time decision on Monday night, so any fantasy managers deciding between him and another QB that plays on Sunday will probably want to play this one safe and put Smith on their bench. Lock made his first start of the year in the Week 14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, going 22-for-31 for 269 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in what was a respectable showing against one of the league's best defenses. Lock will have a much better matchup against a shaky Philly secondary if he starts again on Monday night, although we still wouldn't recommend him as anything more than a midrange QB2, at best.

The quarterback hasn't been fully healthy over the last few weeks, and he even missed last Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. With that said, if active on Monday night, he could rank as a high-end fantasy QB2. The Seahawks are underdogs, which means they'll have to pass a lot, and it also helps that Philadelphia's secondary has been suspect this year. Fantasy managers can expect confirmation on his status sometime Monday, which might make it difficult to set your lineup.

In his stead, backup Drew Lock passed for 269 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the 28-16 loss. The Seahawks are still technically in the playoff hunt and will be desperate for a win in Week 15 when they play the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night. If he can go on Monday, he will be treated to a defense that is among the most generous to opposing quarterbacks.

Smith has an extra day this week to rest up and appears to be on track to return, although he may not be a lock to start until Monday if he's listed as questionable on the final injury report. The 33-year-old had a strong game in his last game played in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys, but that momentum was halted by missing last week.

    According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Seahawks may not decide on quarterback Geno Smith's (groin) availability for Sunday's NFC West showdown with the 49ers until pregame warmups. The signal-caller, who remains questionable, is battling a groin issue, with Schefter adding that it's "considered a two-week injury." Of course, he could always try to play through the ailment, considering the Seahawks are quickly fading out of the playoff picture. On the other hand, Seattle might keep Smith off the field for a game or two, especially if it gets him back to 100% for a potential postseason push. At any rate, Drew Lock would likely be under center if Smith doesn't suit up on Sunday. But Lock hasn't been the most reliable quarterback over the years, so fantasy managers shouldn't consider him a viable replacement. Unfortunately, a possible Lock start wouldn't be an ideal scenario for D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and the rest of the Seattle pass-catchers versus a potent 49ers defense. .

Smith popped up on the Week 14 injury report on Thursday and was limited before being held out of Friday's session. The 33-year-old veteran was already a fade in fantasy this week because of the shy-away matchup against San Fran's elite defense, but now he should definitely be avoided with the chance that he might not even suit up. Making things more difficult for fantasy managers that were considering Smith is the fact that the Seahawks play in the late window this Sunday. If Smith is forced to sit, backup Drew Lock would make the start, making all of Seattle's pass-catchers much less attractive in fantasy lineups.

Mid-week additions to the injury report aren't the greatest of signs, but we'll have a better idea of how serious Smith's groin injury is after the team's practice on Friday. If it's serious enough to keep him sidelined this weekend, backup Drew Lock would make the start for Seattle. The 33-year-old Smith bounced back in a big way in last Thursday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, throwing for 334 yards and a season-high three touchdowns, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect an encore in Week 14 if he plays against the division-rival San Francisco 49ers. Smith went for 180 yards, no TDs and an interception just two weeks ago on Thanksgiving night in the first meeting with San Fran and their elite defense.
