Poor performance in win

Smith completed 19 of 31 passes for 213 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Rams. He added four rushes for 51 yards.

Analysis: Smith threw an interception on his first pass attempt of the game, which largely set the tone for the rest of his performance. While he threw multiple picks for only the second time this season, Smith managed to lead a few key drives. The first came early in the third quarter, which he capped by connecting with Tyler Lockett for a 36-yard touchdown. Though both ended in field goals, Smith also led drives late in the fourth quarter and in overtime to help Seattle win the game and keep their playoff hopes alive. Regardless of the team outcome, Smith had a very successful season from a personal perspective and should be a starter in 2023 -- whether that's for the Seahawks or with another team.

Tosses two TDs in win

Smith completed 18 of 29 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 23-6 win over the Jets.

Analysis: He added 18 rushing yards on five carries. While Smith didn't produce much yardage, leaving that to Kenneth Walker and the backfield during a game in which Seattle never trailed, he was sharp when he needed to be and hit backup tight ends Colby Parkinson and Tyler Mabry for touchdowns in the first and second quarters. He's now one passing TD shy of 30 for the year, and with the Seahawks still alive in the race for a playoff spot, Smith might need to continue his remarkable comeback season for one more game in Week 18 against the Rams.

Middling performance in loss

Smith completed 25 of 40 pass attempts for 215 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 24-10 loss to the Chiefs. He added 16 rushing yards on three attempts.

Analysis: Smith turned in one of his poorer fantasy performances in an otherwise impressive 2022 campaign. The 32-year-old has struggled in recent weeks, averaging 239.0 passing yards while throwing three interceptions over his last three games. Things don't get any easier for Smith in Week 17 with a stout Jets defense on deck. In positive news, the veteran signal-caller may get explosive wideout Tyler Lockett (finger) back for next Sunday's tilt.

Solid numbers in loss

Smith completed 31 of 44 passes for 238 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions while adding an 18-yard rush on his one attempt in the Seahawks' 21-13 loss to the 49ers on Thursday night. He also committed a fumble that was recovered by Seattle.

Analysis: Smith's final numbers were adequate from a fantasy perspective -- especially against an elite defense -- but he ultimately wasn't able to help the Seahawks keep up with the Brock Purdy-led 49ers offense. The veteran signal-caller continued to demonstrate excellent chemistry with his top receiving duo of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, and he alos connected with Noah Fant for a 10-yard touchdown with 3:35 remainiing. However, the Seattle defense was never able to get Smith the ball back for a potential game-tying drive, but he'll aim to step up his performance in what should be a critical Week 16 matchup against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium a week from Saturday.

Inconsistent in defeat

Smith completed 21 of 36 passes for 264 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Panthers. He also rushed three times for 20 yards.

Analysis: Smith was picked off on his first throw of the game, setting the stage for an uneven performance. The signal-caller was intercepted another time in the first half, but Smith still distributed the ball relatively well, as each of his top three receivers (DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Marquise Goodwin) caught at least five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. With a second straight three-score game, Smith carries decent recent form into a tricky Week 15 matchup Thursday night versus the 49ers.

Cleared for Week 14

Smith (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Panthers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: The right shoulder issue that resulted in Smith's practice reps being capped Thursday won't prevent him from playing this weekend, but the signal-caller could have to get by without some key weapons at his disposal. Most notably, starting wideout DK Metcalf (hip), lead back Kenneth Walker (ankle) and top tight end Will Dissly (calf) are listed as questionable after their respective injuries affected their practice participation this week. Smith will at the very least have trusty slot man Tyler Lockett available in the passing game, but the ability of Metcalf in particular to play through his injury would be a major boon to the quarterback's Week 14 fantasy outlook.

Tending to right shoulder issue

Smith was a limited practice participant Thursday due to a right shoulder injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Like wide receiver DK Metcalf (hip), Smith is showing up on the Seahawks' second injury report of Week 14 after avoiding it entirely Wednesday. It's notable that Smith is dealing with an issue to his throwing arm, but with one practice to go Friday he has a chance to put any questions about his playing status behind him ahead of Sunday's contest against the Panthers.

Career-best effort against Rams

Smith completed 28 of 39 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Rams.

Analysis: The 367 yards were a career high for Smith, who overcame a huge revenge game from former Seahawk Bobby Wagner that included two sacks and an INT to engineer a comeback win. After the Rams took a 23-20 lead with just under three minutes left in the fourth quarter, Smith led a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended in a DK Metcalf touchdown reception with only 36 seconds left on the clock. The 32-year-old QB has tossed multiple TD passes in six straight games and racked up at least 275 passing yards in four straight, giving him plenty of momentum heading into a Week 14 clash with the Panthers.

Dec 4, 2022 6:43 PM EST

Big effort wasted Sunday

Smith completed 27 of 37 passes for 328 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 40-34 overtime loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: He added 22 rushing yards on five carries but also lost a fumble. Smith found Tyler Lockett in the second quarter and Travis Homer in the fourth for his TDs, with the latter giving the Seahawks a late lead, but the defense wasn't able to make it hold up. The passing yards were a season high for Smith, and he's tossed exactly two touchdowns in five straight games heading into a Week 13 clash with the Rams.

Nov 27, 2022 7:05 PM EST

Efficient in loss

Smith completed 23 of his 33 passes for 275 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 21-16 loss to Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Smith had a costly fumble deep in Tampa Bay territory late in the third quarter, which was a contributing cause to Seattle's loss. However, he was strong from a fantasy perspective, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt while also connecting for scores of 21 and 19 yards. Smith now has multiple touchdown throws in four consecutive games, and he has recorded exactly 275 passing yards in two straight contests.

Wanted back for 2023

The Seahawks have interest in re-signing Smith as the starter for the 2023 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Smith, heading into Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers in Munich, is approaching his 10th start of the 2022 season. The 32-year-old boasts a 73.1 percent completion rate through his nine appearances thus far, with 2,199 passing yards and a 15:4 TD:INT ratio, plus one more score on the ground. Considering the impressive quality of Smith's play, it's no surprise that Seattle will work to re-sign him as a continued starter, though contract talks are expected to take place after the season. That provides Smith with further opportunities to bolster his resume, beginning with Sunday's international matchup against a Tampa Bay defense that returns starting safety Antoine Winfield from the concussion protocol, and Carlton Davis another week removed from injury.

Two more TDs in Week 9 win

Smith completed 26 of 34 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns with an interception in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals. He added 38 rushing yards on six carries.

Analysis: The INT turned into a pick-six by Zaven Collins, but otherwise it was another impressive performance from Smith. The veteran quarterback has tossed multiple TDs in seven of nine games, giving him a 15:4 TD:INT on the season and plenty of momentum as the Seahawks carry a four-game winning streak into a Week 10 clash with the Buccaneers in Germany.

Nov 6, 2022 5:10 PM EST

Big fourth quarter in win

Smith completed 23 of 34 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants. He added 26 rushing yards on five carries.

Analysis: The game was a tight defensive battle until the fourth quarter, when Smith broke open a 13-13 tie with a 33-yard TD strike to Tyler Lockett. The veteran QB has tossed multiple touchdowns in six of eight games so far this season en route to a sharp 13:3 TD:INT, but in Week 9 he faces a Cardinals secondary that kept him out of the end zone entirely in their first meeting.

Tosses two TDs in big road win

Smith completed 20 of 27 passes for 210 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-23 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: He also gained seven yards on four carries. The quarterback lost one of his main targets in the first quarter after DK Metcalf suffered a knee injury, but Smith didn't skip a beat and instead just hit Marquise Goodwin for the journeyman wideout's first two TDs of the year. Smith has tossed multiple TDs in five of seven games, helping him amass a sharp 11:3 TD:INT heading into a Week 8 clash with the Giants.

Oct 23, 2022 6:07 PM EST

Slowed by Arizona

Smith completed 20 of 31 passes for 197 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 19-9 win over Arizona.

Analysis: Smith helped the Seahawks to victory, though he was unable to continue his extremely efficient performances. After averaging 10.7 yards per attempt in each of his last two games, Smith managed only a mark of 6.4 yards per attempt against Arizona. He also failed to throw for a touchdown for the second time this season, resulting in a disappointing performance. Smith should be in a positive game environment to rebound in a Week 8 matchup against the Chargers.

Oct 16, 2022 9:37 PM EST

Stays hot in loss

Smith completed 16 of his 25 passes for 268 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 39-32 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Smith attempted a season-low 25 pass attempts, though that was largely because he helped Seattle's offense score so efficiently. He shredded the Saints' secondary for long touchdowns of 50, 40 and 35 yards to keep his team in the game in a high-scoring affair. Through five games this season, Smith has thrown multiple touchdowns four times and has topped 250 passing yards in each of his last three matchups.

Stellar performance in Week 4 win

Smith completed 23 of 30 passes for 320 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions and added 49 yards and another score on seven rushes in the Seahawks' 48-45 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Smith continued his shocking early-season trend of outplaying the man he replaced at quarterback, franchise legend Russell Wilson, with a second straight 300-yard effort. The 2013 second-round pick completed 76.7 percent of his throws for his fourth showing of over 70.0 percent in as many games to open the season, with his three total scores on the day coming via an eight-yard rush along with 17- and two-yard touchdown tosses to tight ends Will Dissly and Noah Fant, respectively. Smith now boasts a 6:2 TD:INT through four games for the surprising 2-2 Seahawks, who'll next face the Saints on the road in Week 5.

Oct 2, 2022 1:53 PM EST

Eclipses 300 yards in loss

Smith completed 32 of 44 pass attempts for 325 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: Smith was able to wake up Seattle's offense following last week's zero-point dud against the 49ers (only touchdown was via special teams). The veteran quarterback was able to get both of his talented wideouts involved, throwing double-digit targets to DK Metcalf (five catches, 64 yards and a touchdown) and Tyler Lockett (nine receptions for 76 yards). Geno is not a sexy name in season-long formats, but he could be a value play in DFS with a favorable matchup against the Lions next Sunday (31.0 points per game allowed this season).

Little production against Niners

Smith completed 24 of 30 passes for 197 yards and an interception in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: He also gained two yards on two carries. For the second straight start, Smith was accurate but didn't produce much yardage. Unlike Week 1, however, he wasn't able to get the ball into the end zone while also committing a turnover. The veteran QB is proving to be competent game manager as Seattle's starter but little more, and he may need to step things up in Week 3 against a Falcons team that's averaged 26.5 points through its first two games.

Two TDs in Week 1 upset win

Smith completed 23 of 28 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's 17-16 win over the Broncos. He added 14 yards on five rushing attempts.

Analysis: Smith sent the amped up Seattle crowd into a frenzy when he found wide open tight end Will Dissly for a 38-yard touchdown to cap the game's first drive, but he failed to get any push on a 4th-and-inches sneak attempt inside Denver's 10 to stall Seattle's second possession. He completed his first 13 passes and was undeterred by his first incompletion, bouncing back with a 25-yard touchdown to Colby Parkinson to put the Seahawks up 17-10. Seattle's offense cooled off after halftime, but the Seahawks held on for the upset win. Smith looked comfortable and had complete command of the offense despite the modest final numbers, which should give him some job security heading into a Week 2 visit to San Francisco after Smith narrowly held off Drew Lock for the starting quarterback role in preseason.
