Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith said he likes the scheme that offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb is bringing to the team because it matches his drop-back passing style of play.
Huddle Up: Smith saw a drop in his stats this last season but still has one of the better receiving corps to work with in the NFL. He should be able to improve on his stats in 2024 but probably will be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith will not have any competition for the starting job next season, and QB Sam Howell knows he will be the backup, according to head coach Mike Macdonald.
Huddle Up: Smith will have to learn a new offense this offseason but still has one of the better receiver groups in the NFL. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most fantasy leagues and will not be in the starting lineup often.

Seattle Seahawks TEs Noah Fant and Pharaoh Brown are the new combination at the tight end position heading into the 2024 season. General manager and president of football operations John Schneider is excited about the pairing. "Those two guys' skill sets are going to be really nice, and I think those two guys working together is gonna be a great fit," Schneider said Monday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Fant is the pass catcher, and the best fantasy option, especially now that Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson have moved to new organizations. Brown is best used in blocking situations, and is unlikely to do much from a fantasy perspective.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith is not a lock to start in 2024 based on recent comments by head coach Mike Macdonald during a radio interview on Friday, March 8.
Huddle Up: Smith came back down to earth in 2024 but his overall numbers weren't terrible, with the Seahawks signal-caller finishing as QB18 overall despite missing two games due to injury. Smith has a massive dead-cap number this year and cutting him wouldn't net any savings, so it looks like he'll be on the roster no matter what, barring a trade. As far as competition is concerned, the Seahawks don't have any on the roster and Smith's stiffest competition might come from a rookie if Seattle drafts a quarterback. The veteran would be considered the favorite to start in that situation and if he wins, Smith will enter 2024 as a QB2.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett agreed to a restructured deal worth $30 million over two years with nearly $13 million guaranteed for 2024 season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: After four straight seasons with 1,000-plus yards and at least eight touchdowns, Lockett's numbers dipped in 2023. With Jaxon Smith-Njigba primed for a bigger role, staying in Seattle makes a rebound season for Lockett seem unlikely.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith "is the quarterback until he's not," according to general manager John Schneider.
Huddle Up: Smith was the QB17 in 15 games last year. The team has the 16th overall selection and no second-round picks. So it'll be interesting to see if they try to land a quarterback in the middle of the first round or trade up. Smith is a decent QB2 "until he's not."

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith was informed by the team on Thursday, Feb. 15, that he will remain on the roster through this week, according to sources. As a result, the $12.7 million in his contract that was protected by an injury guarantee will become fully guaranteed on Friday.
Huddle Up: Smith took a step back from his breakout 2022 season last year, but some of that had to do with an offense under former offensive coordinator Shane Waldron that probably ran a bit more than it should have. It also would not make much sense for Seattle to move on from Smith since the team does not have a viable alternative already in place and cutting him would have resulted in a dead cap charge of around $17.5 million. While he may not repeat 2022, Smith could rebound nicely if new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb employs a more pass-heavy approach as expected.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf's 17 end zone targets ranked fourth in the NFL in 2023, and Metcalf has recorded 14 or more end zone targets in each of his five seasons in the league.
Huddle Up: Metcalf isn't going to rank among the league leaders in receptions, but his size and speed make him a matchup nightmare, especially in the red zone. He has caught 43 touchdowns in five seasons, and he has never finished with fewer than 900 receiving yards.

Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell was sacked an NFL-high 65 times during the 2023 season.
Huddle Up: While the sacks certainly didn't help his cause, a rough finish to the season that included six interceptions in the final three games may have cost him a chance at starting in 2024.

Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell will start in Week 18, head coach Ron Rivera said on Wednesday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Howell ranks as QB11 overall and has had a good second season, although his last four games have been rough, to say the least. Still, some of that can be attributed to a Commanders team has looked checked out for weeks now. Howell can't be trusted in lineups in Week 18 but should be held in dynasty formats.

Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell completed just 6-of-22 passes for 56 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 16 against the New York Jets before he was benched in the third quarter.
Huddle Up: Howell was dreadful, and benched for the second consecutive game. Jacoby Brissett came on in relief and was sharp for the second straight outing. It wouldn't be shocking to see Brissett get the starting nod under center in Week 17, although with the Commanders are 4-11 and out of the race, it remains to be seen what the plan will be in the final two outings. For fantasy purposes, Howell just cannot be trusted, even if he gets another start.
