We break down the fantasy football outlook of Geno Smith ahead of the 49ers Week 12 matchup against the Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers Thanksgiving evening in a game they need to win, but one where they are also 7-point underdogs. They will be without running back Kenneth Walker and their top 2 wide receivers aren’t 100% healthy. And their quarterback, Geno Smith, is also hurting. Smith has a bruised elbow tendon, but is set to play despite getting a questionable tag.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks QB Geno Smith

Smith has had an up and down year, which shows in his fantasy finishes each week. He has just two fantasy results below QB14 in any week this season. This week he’ll face a tough 49ers defense which has allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.

Start or sit in Week 12 fantasy football leagues?

With Smith not 100%, his playmakers not quite there either, and a tough overall matchup, Smith is most-likely a sit in the majority of fantasy leagues this week.
