Last week, Jaxon Smith-Njigba failed to record three catches for the first time in his NFL career. Here’s a look at if he holds any value this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba

Smith-Njigba caught two passes for 41 yards last week against the 49ers. He made a highlight reel catch that pushed head coach Pete Carroll to tell reporters that JSN needs to see more work moving forward.

Start or sit in Week 13 PPR leagues?

Sit.

While Sunday’s game marked the sixth time in seven games that Smith-Njigba tallied more than 40 yards receiving, he’s yet to get more than 63 yards receiving any game this season. We could see more work coming his way, but he dies have a tough matchup with the Cowboys, who rank 6th best in pass defense DVOA this season.

Start or sit in Week 13 standard leagues?

Sit

Smith-Njigba isn’t seeing many targets in the red zone this season and his size doesn’t lend itself to that kind of work at this point in his career.
