The Seattle Seahawks host their NFC West Division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night. San Francisco are 7-point favorites at the moment, so we can expect the Seahawks to need to throw the ball on Thursday night. Their passing game is a bit beat up, as QB Geno Smith is dealing with a bruise on his throwing elbow, D.K. Metcalf has a toe injury and Tyler Lockett continues to manage a hamstring injury. All three are expected to play though.
Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba
The rookie wide receiver, Smith-Njigba, has talent to be sure, but has yet to see a big enough workload to be counted on in fantasy. Smith-Njigba has only had one game where he’s cracked the Top-20 in wide receiver PPR points. He is seeing enough targets to have some fantasy hope, but hasn’t been targeted in the red zone very often, with just four on the year and zero times over the last three games.
