Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith got an endorsement for the starting job from former teammate and free-agent LB K.J. Wright. "I'll tell you not Baker Mayfield," Wright said. "Not Drew Lock. We ain't gonna play those games. I'm team Geno all day." Wright went on to explain why Smith is his choice. "Geno was good.. He was scout team quarterback. The dude has a cannon for an arm. He's intellectual, you know, having those two-minute drills during practice throughout the week, the man can play. Just trust him, just trust Geno."
Huddle Up: The only way we'd even consider rostering a Seattle quarterback in 2022 is if the team acquires Baker Mayfield, and even then he'd be a shaky QB2 option. Avoid this situation if possible.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith remains ahead of QB Drew Lock in the competition for the starting quarterback job, head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, June 9.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith worked with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, May 31. QB Drew Lock worked with the second-team offense.
Huddle Up: Smith is considered the leading candidate at this point since he is more familiar with the offense. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see who wins the starting job. The Seahawks have two of the better receivers in the NFL, but their starting quarterback probably should only be seen as a No. 2 fantasy QB.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith has a small advantage over QB Drew Lock for the starting quarterback job at this point since he is more familiar with the offense, according to offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.
Huddle Up: Smith and Lock should have their competition during training camp and preseason games. Fantasy players should consider the Seahawks quarterback a No. 2 fantasy option no matter which player wins the job.

Seattle Seahawks QB Drew Lock received a glowing review from head coach Pete Carroll. ''The first look at Drew, he's really athletic, he's really a confident athlete, you can see he's got a lot of body control, he's got quick feet, he's got a quick arm, he's got various ways he can release the football as his body's in different positions,'' Carroll said. ''He's got a real knack there. He's got a strong arm, he can throw the ball a mile down the field. He compares to Geno, and Geno Smith has a great arm. He has a world-class arm, and all that. To match up with that, that's saying a lot.'' Carroll also believes Lock would have been the first quarterback off the board if he were in the 2022 NFL draft class.
Huddle Up: Lock, who was acquired in the Russell Wilson trade, will compete for the starting job in Seattle with Geno Smith, but neither are appealing fantasy options. Whoever wins the job will be a QB3.
