Seahawks QB Geno Smith is not listed on the Week 13 injury report. He played through an elbow/tricep injury on Thanksgiving night, mustering just 180 passing yards, 0 TDs, and one INT. It's tough to say whether the injury or San Francisco's defense was the bigger culprit. Regardless, the injury is evidently no longer an issue heading into Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Smith, however, still sits well outside QB1 territory in the Week 13 Rankings.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker (oblique) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Only two players listed as doubtful across the entire league have wound up playing this year (Maxx Crosby and Darius Slayton, both last week). Walker obviously needs to be on fantasy benches. His absence should mean another feature-back role for Zach Charbonnet, who played 88% of Seattle's offensive snaps and handled 18 of 21 RB opportunities last week. See where Charbonnet lands in the Week 13 RB Rankings.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker (oblique) did not practice on Tuesday. He's seemingly unlikely to play vs. the Cowboys on Thursday night, which would mean another game as feature back for Zach Charbonnet. The rookie played 88% of Seattle's offensive snaps last week and handled 18 of 21 RB opportunities. Our current Week 13 RB Rankings assume Walker is out on Thursday.

Seahawks RB Zach Charbonnet logged 14 carries for just 47 rushing yards and 4 catches for 11 yards against the 49ers on Thursday night. A struggling Seattle offense didn’t help. QB Geno Smith was clearly limited by his right triceps injury. The Seahawks held the ball for just 7:29 of the first half and trailed by 11+ points throughout the second half. Charbonnet’s usage was strong, at least: 87.5% snap rate and 85.7% of RB touches. Unfortunately for him, Ken Walker III (oblique) is expected back soon and the remaining schedule ranks toughest for RBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed. That includes facing the Cowboys in Week 13 and a rematch against San Francisco the weekend after. Keep your expectations for this backfield in check the rest of the way.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (elbow) is active for tonight’s game vs. the 49ers. He was a full-go in Wednesday’s practice and “looked good, felt good,” according to HC Pete Carroll. It doesn’t sound like the elbow/tricep injury will be a major factor tonight. But it adds some risk in what’s already a tough matchup. Smith sits deep in QB2 territory in the Week 12 Rankings.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker (oblique) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the 49ers. RB Zach Charbonnet should dominate backfield work in this one. RBs DeeJay Dallas and Kenny McIntosh are active behind him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Seahawks RB Ken Walker (oblique) won't play vs. the 49ers tonight. But Rapoport adds that Walker "does not have a major injury" and "has a chance" to play in Week 13. It sounds like Zach Charbonnet might get just one game as Seattle's feature back. We highlighted the rookie as a potential sell candidate in this week's Fantasy Football Trade Targets, Sells, and Holds.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (toe) is not listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He missed Tuesday's practice but was a full-go on Wednesday. There's no reason to believe that the toe will be a significant factor in Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker (oblique) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers. He didn't practice all week and could certainly miss more time beyond Week 12. Walker's absence should leave RB Zach Charbonnet in a workhorse role. He's a solid RB2 play in fantasy lineups, despite a negative matchup.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (elbow) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers. He was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, though, and HC Pete Carroll said afterward that Smith "looked good, felt good." Insider Jordan Schultz confirms that Smith is expected to start against San Francisco. That's good news for Seattle's offense, but Smith is only a QB2 this week at less than 100% in a bad matchup.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (elbow) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. He was non-committal on his availability for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers in his press conference, but getting on the field today is a good sign. We're tentatively expecting Smith to play on Thanksgiving but will update his status again tomorrow.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf missed Tuesday's practice and is on the injury report with a toe. He's dealt with hip and rib injuries this season, but the toe is new. We'll see if Metcalf practices on Wednesday and how he's listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Ken Walker's injured oblique is still being evaluated. Carroll at least said that Walker shouldn't need a trip to IR. We'll look for further updates on his status, but Walker is a long shot to play vs. the 49ers on Thursday night. That'll leave rookie Zach Charbonnet as Seattle's lead back. Carroll also said Monday that RB Kenny McIntosh is expected to make his regular-season debut on Thursday. He'll join RB DeeJay Dallas behind Charbonnet.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that there's no structural damage to QB Geno Smith's elbow. Smith is sore, though, and will be evaluated over the next few days, Carroll added. It sounds like Smith is uncertain for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers, although we'd expect him to push to play in such a big game. We'll keep tabs on his status. QB Drew Lock would be a significant downgrade for the offense if Smith is unable to play.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett entered Sunday's game questionable with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. He still managed to run a route on 71.4% of QB Geno Smith's dropbacks and finished second on the team in targets (7). The route rate fell slightly from Lockett's usual, trailing WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba behind team leader D.K. Metcalf. Lockett managed 5 receptions for a just-OK 51 yards. That's not winning your fantasy matchup, but it's a decent line for a guy fighting off hamstring trouble. We'll be watching Lockett's status heading into a Week 12 home date with the 49ers. That matchup has been more favorable for opponent passing games than to RB scoring.

Seahawks RB Zach Charbonnet carried 15 times and drew 6 targets in Sunday's loss to the Rams, which saw RB Kenneth Walker leave early with an oblique injury. He turned that into just 47 yards on the ground (3.1 per carry), though, and 22 yards on 6 receptions (3.7 per catch). That's poor production, and not the kind of efficiency that's going to command touches for Charbonnet once Walker returns. Walker seems like a solid bet to miss at least one more game, but we'll watch for updates leading into Week 12. One other factor working against both Seattle RBs is the league's second-worst remaining schedule for RB scoring. Charbonnet is worth a look where available on the waiver wire this week. But don't expect him to become a roster savior.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Rams that RB Ken Walker has a “legit” oblique strain. We should learn more about the injury tomorrow, but Walker seems unlikely to be ready for Thursday night’s game vs. the 49ers. That’d leave Zach Charbonnet as Seattle’s lead back.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Rams that QB Geno Smith has a bruise on his “tricep, back of his elbow” that “blew up a little bit.” Carroll wouldn’t say whether Smith will be able to play vs. the 49ers on Thanksgiving night. If not, Seattle will turn to QB Drew Lock, who went 2 of 6 for three yards and an INT today. We should get another update on Smith on Monday.

Commanders QB Sam Howell threw for just 255 yards and 1 TD despite attempting 45 passes in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He also took 4 sacks and tossed 3 INTs. It was a surprisingly tough day for Howell, considering how much the Giants have struggled lately. But it was his second rough outing against the Giants this season. Washington's QB did save his fantasy day with 35 yards and a TD rushing. Howell gets a (supposedly) tougher matchup at Dallas in Week 12 that just might push him outside the top 12 in our QB rankings. Then comes a home date with Miam and a Week 14 bye. Howell should be startable in Week 13 but doesn't look especially helpful overall for the next three weeks. And he'll return from the bye to find a just-OK Rams matchup, then poor matchups with the Jets and 49ers. This might be a time to consider trading Howell if you're otherwise OK at QB.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith injured his right elbow near the end of the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Rams and is officially questionable to return. The TV broadcast showed him on the sidelines with a huge wrap on the elbow, so he seems unlikely to be back today. QB Drew Lock has replaced Smith.

Update: Smith returned with a wrap on his elbow for the final drive of the game with Seattle down 17-16.
