A surprising, career-transforming season for journeyman quarterback Geno Smith will face perhaps its biggest challenge yet this weekend. On Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks will host the San Francisco 49ers in a game that could decide the winner of the NFC West.
Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Geno Smith
The first time Smith faced the 49ers this season, it didn’t go well for him or his team. He finished the game without a touchdown while the Seahawks lost by 20 points. Smith has picked up steam since then, sporting a 23-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his 11 starts since that Week 2 meeting.
At the same time, the 49ers' defense still looks like one of the premier units in the league. Only four teams have allowed fewer fantasy points on a weekly basis to quarterbacks entering Week 15 than San Francisco which boasts more interceptions (seven) than passing touchdowns allowed (three) over the past four games. Smith has a decent chance to score this weekend, but history still suggests a difficult day at the office.
Start or sit in Week 15?
