The short turnaround from Sunday to Thursday for the Seahawks couldn’t come at a more inconvenient time, with Geno Smith’s status now up in the air ahead of a high-stakes Thanksgiving showdown with the 49ers. For the most part this season, Geno has been a low-QB2 for fantasy purposes and offers little upside even in a loaded Seahawks offense, but his injury is much less about how it affects him than the way it affects guys like D.K. Metcalf and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. Drew Lock played a few drives of quite uninspiring football after Smith exited the game on Sunday, going 2/6 passing for just three yards and an interception in limited action – Lock under center would prove to be a real hindrance to both Lockett and Metcalf in the ceiling department moving forward. Fantasy managers should pay attention to reports out of Seattle regarding the QB’s health for Week 12, as both Metcalf and Lockett would receive significant downgrades without their startng QB.
