  • Geno Smith Bangs His Knee Thursday

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that quarterback Geno Smith (knee) banged his knee in Thursday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears but that he could have returned to the contest. The injury doesn't seem serious at all and shouldn't affect Smith's availability for the start of the regular season. The 31-year-old started on Thursday with Drew Lock out with COVID-19, and he went 10-for-18 for 112 yards. Even if Lock is healthy enough to start the team's final preseason game next week, Smith is looking like the favorite to start under center in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. Smith hasn't stood out by any means this summer at training camp, and he'll be nothing more than a low-end QB2 for fantasy managers in superflex leagues as the starter.

  • Geno Smith Plays First Half Of Thursday's Game

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith completed 10 of 18 passes for 112 yards during Thursday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears. He did not throw an interception, nor did he find the end zone. He was sacked twice in the contest. Smith played the entire first half with Drew Lock (COVID-19) sidelined but handed over the reins to Jacob Eason in the second half. Smith and Lock are currently competing for the No. 1 quarterback role, barring a late signing or trade. Both quarterbacks would be on a short leash if they won the starting job and neither is worth scrambling for in fantasy leagues.

  • Geno Smith Still The No. 1 QB

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith will likely make another start in the second preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Thursday now that Drew Lock is out with COVID-19. Third-stringer Jacob Eason is also in line for some snaps after he didn't play in the preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before Lock tested positive for COVID, head coach Pete Carroll said Smith was still in the lead in the QB competition this summer. "Geno is still the No. 1 guy," Carroll said. "He's holding on to the spot at this point." Lock's positive test may make it difficult for him to gain ground on Smith for the starting job entering the regular season. At this point, Smith should be the favorite to start in Week 1, but he'll be nothing more than a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues.

  • Geno Smith Logs Rushing TD In Preseason Start

    Seattle Seahawks quarterbackGeno Smithcompleted 10-of-15 passes for 101 yards, adding two carries for nine yards and a touchdown on the ground in Saturday's 32-25 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He finds himself knee-deep in a camp battle with fellow quarterbackDrew Lock. Smith was first on the field in Saturday's preseason opener, which featured a starting unit without its star receiver duo but did include tight endNoah Fantand running backKenneth Walker III. He played the entire first half, capping off his final drive with a two-yard rushing touchdown. The Seahawks stuck to their run-heavy approach, limiting the completions for Smith and Lock. Smith still seems to have the upper hand, but this performance is unlikely to solidify that role.

  • Geno Smith To Start First Preseason Game

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith will make the start under center for the first preseason game, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The former second round pick looks to have the edge over Drew Lock. Although, Lock has looked better over the last week, but it sounds like this is Smith's job to lose. Smith has played briefly with the Seahawks over the last two seasons. No one expects him to be comparable to Russell Wilson. It's hard to imagine Smith have weekly fantasy value, but it looks like he'll be the starter over Lock to begin the season.

  • Drew Lock Outperforms Geno Smith Over The Weekend

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith took all of the first-team repetitions during Sunday's walk-through practice, while Drew Lock worked exclusively with the No. 2 offense as the QB competition appeared to remain status quo. Smith has gotten virtually all of the first-team reps in the first week and a half of training camp, but that could start to change based on Lock's strong showing in Saturday's mock game. Lock was clearly the better QB, while Smith underwhelmed while leading the first-team offense against backups. The Seattle coaching staff hasn't made any judgments on the two QBs since the weekend, but there's a chance that Lock could have his opening to take the starting QB job and run with it for the rest of camp and the preseason. Stay tuned.

  • Geno Smith Begins Camp With First-Team Offense

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith ran with the first-team offense at training camp practice on Wednesday, with Drew Lock working with the second-team. Lock did get a couple first-team repetitions with the starting offensive line in 11-man offensive drills without a defense present, however. Smith was in the lead in the QB competition after mandatory minicamp last month, so he's picking up where he left off. The 31-year-old has the early edge because of his familiarity with the system, but Lock has the more impressive physical tools. This is a competition that should continue deep into camp and the preseason, with the winner being nothing more than a low-end QB2 option in two-QB leagues.

  • Geno Smith Still Ahead Of Drew Lock In QB Competition

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith is still ahead of Drew Lock in the team's quarterback competition after the Seahawks wrapped up mandatory minicamp this week. "Geno's still ahead, you can tell that, but it's not going to be too much for Drew to be caught up," head coach Pete Carroll said. "By the time we get through camp he'll be there. He's really bright." Smith is basically leading this competition because he's been in Seattle's system for the last three years as Russell Wilson's backup. The real battle will begin next month at training camp, where Lock could easily win the job with a better performance. The Seahawks have an excellent receiver duo in DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but neither Smith nor Lock should have fantasy managers excited as their QB2, especially since the winner of the competition will likely have a short leash.
