Seahawks TE Noah Fant (knee) is active for tonight's game vs. the Giants. He didn't practice on Saturday but is evidently healthy enough to suit up for this one. Fant is a shaky fantasy option, even in one-game DFS contests.

Commanders QB Sam Howell threw for 290 yards and a TD -- with 0 INTs -- in Sunday's OT loss at Philadelphia. He found WR Jahan Dotson for the game-tying score at the end of the fourth quarter but watched the team's other two TDs get scored on the ground. Howell added 40 rushing yards on 6 carries. That more than doubled his rushing-yardage total from any of the first three games. It was an encouraging outing for the second-year QB, especially after his brutal 4-INT performance in Week 3. Howell carries some superflex and deep-league appeal into a Week 5 home date with Chicago.

Seahawks TE Noah Fant (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. He wasn't on the injury report on Thursday or Friday but then popped up as a non-participant in Saturday's practice. With the late kickoff, Fant should not be in Week 4 fantasy lineups. TE Will Dissly (shoulder) is also questionable for Monday night, but he seems likely to play after putting in a full practice on Saturday.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) returned to a full practice on Friday. He'll be ready to go for Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) did not practice on Thursday. He played through this injury last week and should be fine for Monday night's game vs. the Giants, but we'll keep you updated on his status over the next few days.

Commanders QB Sam Howell tallied only 170 passing yards, 0 TDs, and 4 picks in Week 3. He took 9 sacks in the loss to Buffalo. The first-year starter didn’t have much of a chance in this one, as the Bills pressured him on 69.2% of his dropbacks (per Next Gen Stats). Howell faces another tough matchup next week at Philly.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf delivered 6 receptions for 112 yards among 8 targets in Sunday's win over the Panthers. All three numbers marked season highs for Metcalf, who drew 22.2% of QB Geno Smith's pass attempts. WR Tyler Lockett trailed Metcalf by just one target but managed only 3 receptions for 34 yards. TE Noah Fant ranked second on the team with 4 receptions. Seattle gets a positive matchup with the Giants in Week 4, ahead of a Week 5 bye.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker ran for 97 yards and 2 TDs on 18 carries in Sunday's win over the Panthers. he added 59 yards on 3 receptions, tying for third on the team in catches. Rookie RB Zach Charbonnet worked in more than the previous two weeks, carrying four times to Walker's eight in the first half and leading Walker 1-0 in targets at the break. Charbonnet finished with 9-46 rushing and 1 reception (for minus-1) among 2 targets. Few matchups are likely to be as good as Carolina, which entered the game ranked 31st in run-defense DVOA. But a Week 4 spot against the Giants looks positive as well. Seattle gets a bye in Week 5.

Seahawks S Julian Love (hamstring) and S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Panthers. S Jamal Adams is inactive. Expect him to make his season debut in Week 4 after returning to practice the past two weeks.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so we’re expecting him to play his usual role today.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) will play vs. the Panthers on Sunday, according to insider Jordan Schultz. Metcalf was a full participant in Friday's practice and should play his usual role tomorrow.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Panthers. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice after sitting out the previous two days. Metcalf should play against Atlanta, but we should get another update on his status on Sunday morning.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. HC Pete Carroll said earlier this week that he expected Metcalf to play vs. the Panthers on Sunday, but his status is worth checking back on tomorrow.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. Both he and HC Pete Carroll said that Metcalf will be available for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. He can stay penciled into fantasy lineups, but we'll track his status over the next few days.

After a quiet opener, Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett exploded for eight catches, 59 yards, and two TDs in the Week 2 overtime win over the Lions. He scored on a crosser from three yards out in the fourth quarter and then from 6 yards out on a catch and run to win it in overtime. Lockett worked near the line of scrimmage and averaged just 7.4 yards per catch -- likely part of Seattle's game plan without both starting offensive tackles. His 10 targets led the team and were 24.4% of the team total. This was an important bounce back from the Seahawks offense after the Week 1 dud. With upcoming matchups vs. the Panthers and Giants, Lockett is back to solid WR2 status.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker struggled to get much going vs. the Lions in Week 2, averaging just 2.5 yards per carry on 17 totes. But he turned in a nice fantasy day thanks to 1- and 3-yard TD runs. Walker's efficiency behind a struggling offensive line is a concern. But he continues to dominate work in Seattle's backfield. He handled 17 of 22 RB carries against Detroit and two of four RB targets. As long as that continues, Walker should stay in fantasy lineups as a RB2. He gets nice matchups the next two weeks vs. the Panthers and Giants, before a Week 5 bye.

After an ugly opener, Seahawks QB Geno Smith bounced back with a strong showing in a Week 2 overtime win over the Lions. Smith completed 32 of 41 passes (78.0%) for 328 yards (8.0 YPA), two TDs, and 0 INTs. Both of the scores went to WR Tyler Lockett, including a 6-yard game-winner in overtime. This looked like the Geno Smith we saw last year, accurately distributing the ball to all levels of the field. The matchup and game environment certainly worked in his favor in this one. But Smith gets two more beatable defenses in the Panthers and Giants the next two weeks, before a Week 5 bye.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf suffered a rib injury in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Lions and is questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Metcalf returned to the game later in the first half

Commanders QB Sam Howell completed 19 passes on 31 attempts for 202 passing yards with 1 TD and 1 INT vs. the Cardinals. The first-year starter also contributed a rushing TD with 11 yards on the ground in Sunday’s win. Other than the INT and a lost fumble, Howell played relatively well. Given his lack of NFL experience, fantasy managers can only hope production goes up from here. The 2022 fifth-round pick with have a chance to improve against the Broncos in Week 2.

Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba (wrist) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play vs. the Rams on Sunday, about 2-and-a-half weeks after wrist surgery. HC Pete Carroll said Friday that Smith-Njigba will have “no limitations,” but we’d still try to not use the rookie in fantasy lineups coming off that injury.
