Seahawks Elevate Sean Mannion To Active Roster

The Seattle Seahawks elevated quarterback Sean Mannion from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster on Monday, a sign that starter Geno Smith (groin) will be inactive on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. Smith was listed as questionable on the team's final Week 15 injury report with a groin injury and was considered a long shot on Monday morning to play. Mannion would give the Seahawks more QB depth behind Drew Lock, who is trending toward making his second straight start with Smith hurting. Fantasy managers that rolled the dice on Smith are probably going to have to pick up and start Lock unless they have another backup signal-caller already on their roster. Lock could actually be a decent emergency streaming option against an Eagles defense that has been generous to opposing QBs and receivers. They're also missing star cornerback Darius Slay (knee).

Sean Mannion Elevated From Practice Squad

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Sean Mannion has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of the Week 14 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. This could mean bad news for the Seahawks. Quarterback Geno Smith (groin) was unable to practice all week. Drew Lock is expected to start if Smith is unable to play. The elevation of Mannion points to Smith likely sitting out this game. If Smith sits, all of the fantasy relevant players in Seattle would take a significant hit in value with Lock under center. Mannion would be the backup, but he's not any better of an option at quarterback.

Sean Mannion Elevated To Active Roster

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sean Mannion has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of the Week 10 matchup versus the New Orleans Saints. The veteran quarterback will serve as the primary backup with Jaren Hall (concussion) ruled out for this game. The 31-year-old will be the next man up if Joshua Dobbs is forced to exit the contest. The former third-round pick hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2021 with the Vikings. He can be avoided in fantasy formats with Dobbs drawing the start this week.
