Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that quarterback Geno Smith (knee) twisted his knee in the 24-3 blowout win over the New York Giants on Monday night. Carroll said that Smith will probably be sore on Tuesday, but his injury isn't considered serious. Smith had to leave the game and was noticeably upset at the Giants defender that tackled him awkwardly out of bounds in the second quarter. But he returned for the start of the second half and finished the contest going 13-for-20 for 110 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in the easy win. The 32-year-old was sacked twice for a loss of 13 yards. Smith wasn't really asked to do much in this one and produced a disappointing line for his fantasy managers. He'll have ample time to rest his knee with the bye coming in Week 5 before a Week 6 tilt on the road in Cincinnati against the Bengals.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith briefly left Monday night's game with a potential knee injury that needed further evaluation. After Drew Lock took over for a few drives in the second quarter, Smith returned at the beginning of the second half. He's only thrown two total incompletions so far in this game and has led them on a touchdown drive where he found DK Metcalf in the endzone. With Smith being back, the value of the team's pass catchers should return to normal against a Giants defensive unit that has had a number of mistakes.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith (knee) left Monday night's game to receive further evaluation on his knee after he was tackled awkwardly out of bounds in the second quarter. Smith briefly showed frustration with the opposing defensive back who tackled him and then was replaced by Drew Lock. It seems like the team is going to get some X-rays and do some tests before allowing Smith back into the game. Fantasy managers will want to stay tuned for more updates as halftime approaches.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith will face the New York Giants on Monday night in Week 4. After a dud of a season opener, Smith recovered well in Weeks 2 and 3, averaging 312 passing yards with a 71% completion rate. The Giants rank third to last in defensive DVOA against the pass and give up the fourth most points to opposing quarterbacks. The Seahawks' offensive line is the biggest concern, as they are the worst in the league at allowing quarterback pressures. In spite of this, Smith has only suffered five sacks and thrown one interception in 2023. Fantasy managers can plug Smith in to start in Week 4 as he is a safe bet to put up QB2 numbers with QB1 upside in a favorable matchup.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith came up four yards shy of his second 300-yard game in as many weeks in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. In Week 3, he went 23-for-36 for 296 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Smith made things work from behind a makeshift offensive line, though Carolina's defensive front kept the quarterback on his toes and registered two sacks. Next week, the Seahawks take on the New York Giants in a Monday night matchup. The Giants allowed Brock Purdy to throw for 310 yards and two touchdowns on Thursday night in Week 3. Look for Smith to keep building on his recent success in Week 4 and push his way into QB1 territory again.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith bounced back in a big way in Week 2. After signing a three-year, $105 million contract in the offseason Smith fell flat in the Seahawks' season opener, passing for just 112 yards against the Los Angeles Rams. Last week in Detroit, the 32-year-old veteran found his groove and went 32-for-41 for 328 yards through the air and threw two touchdown passes. The Seahawks will next take on the Carolina Panthers, who held Derek Carr to 228 passing yards and intercepted him once in their Week 2 matchup on Monday night. Smith is a viable starter in Week 3 and should put up high-end QB2 numbers.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith went 32-for-41 for 328 passing yards and 2 touchdowns and had 20 rushing yards on three carries against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. It is the fifth time since the start of 2022 that he has thrown for 300 or more yards while maintaining a 70% completion rate. His touchdown passes both went to wide receiver Tyler Lockett. The first came in the fourth quarter to give the Seahawks a 24-21 lead. The second ended the game in overtime after Smith marched the Seahawks down the field on their first possession of the extra period. The 32-year-old veteran will look to flirt with QB1 numbers again when Seattle hosts the Carolina Panthers.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith had a disappointing season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. The veteran started his tenth season completing 13 of 18 pass attempts for 103 yards and a touchdown in the first half, but completed only three more passes for another nine yards after halftime. Smith was pressured on 50% of his dropbacks after Seattle lost both of their starting tackles to injury early in the second half. Next, the Seahawks travel to Detroit to face a Lions secondary that, in Week 1, took advantage of Travis Kelce's absence and limited Patrick Mahomes to 226 passing yards. With DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba all at his disposal, Smith will be an alluring rebound candidate in Week 2.

Quarterback Geno Smith had an underwhelming start to the season in the Seattle Seahawks' 30-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1. He completed 16 of 26 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown and added another six yards on his single rushing attempt of the game. The bulk of Smith's productivity came before halftime with a respectable 13-for-18 effort but he completed only three more passes the rest of the way as Seattle's offense was limited to just 12 yards in the second half. Smith and the Seahawks travel to Detroit in Week 2 where they hope to do better against the Lions and avoid an 0-2 start.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith enjoyed a career year in 2022, earning him Comeback Player of the Year honors and a three-year, $75 million contract. He will begin his tenth NFL season against the Los Angeles Rams on September 10. In 2022, Smith had two very different experiences against his division rival. In Week 12, he passed for 367 yards and three touchdowns, but in Week 17 was held to just 213 passing yards and was intercepted twice. Smith will be throwing to DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba against a Rams defense that lost several key players in the offseason, including cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Fantasy managers can start him with confidence in Week 1.

The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar writes that Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf remains quarterback Geno Smith's go-to target after Metcalf accounted for 25.5 percent of Seattle's targets last year. The fifth-year wideout started his career as mostly an outside receiver, but he's evolved into a player who can stress defenses from the slot as well. Smith and Metcalf weren't all that efficient in 2022, but Dugar believes that should change in 2023. The 25-year-old is one of the NFL's best all-around receivers and has 900-plus receiving yards in each of his first four seasons in the league. The addition of rookie first-rounder Jaxon Smith-Njigba could take some valuable targets away from Metcalf this year, but he remains a strong WR2 target with game-changing abilities in Seattle.
