Tyler Lockett, WR SEA

8:53pm EST 3/9/24

Tyler Lockett staying in Seattle; JSN should be sad

The Seahawks and WR Tyler Lockett have agreed to a restructured deal that will pay $30 million over the next two years, with $13 million guaranteed and a max value of $34 million. That locks in the veteran wideout with Seattle in 2024. The biggest impact here might be on second-year WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba. He ranked a clear third among Seahawks in targets last season, drawing 5.5 per game to Lockett's 7.4 and D.K. Metcalf's 7.2. JSN will need to pass one of those guys to become truly fantasy relevant. A new coaching staff presents opportunity for offensive design to change. But the new regime clearly believes Lockett remains good. And Metcalf just turned 26 in December. Lockett's Underdog Fantasy ADP sits WR56 to date, compared with Smith-Njigba's WR38. That sure looks imbalanced in the veteran's favor from here. Keeping the WR trio together helps QB Geno Smith's outlook -- assuming he keeps the job, of course.

The Seahawks are expected to hire Ryan Grubb as their new OC under HC Mike Macdonald, according to multiple reports. This will be Grubb's first NFL coaching job. He's been in the college ranks since 2005, most recently serving as Washington's OC for the last two seasons. Both of those Huskies teams finished top 13 in the nation in both total yards and points per game. They were especially lethal through the air, ranking first and then second in passing yards per game. Grubb joins a Seahawks squad with plenty of passing-game firepower in WRs D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. QB Geno Smith will very likely be back under center in 2024. We'll see if Seattle reunites Grubb with QB Michael Penix, who was at the helm for Washington the last two years.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that he expects QB Geno Smith (groin) to have a full week of practice and play vs. the Titans on Sunday. Smith appeared on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Eagles but suffered a setback during the week. So he's not a lock to be out there this weekend. But we are projecting it to be Smith under center for the Seahawks in Nashville.

Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba hauled in all 4 of his targets for 48 yards and scored the eventual game-winning TD in Week 15 vs. the Eagles. The rookie has started to heat up over the past three weeks, leading the team in receptions (15) and ranking second in target share (21.8%) and PPR points per game (11.5). Season-long managers should still treat JSN as a deeper league flex option at best, especially as long as QB Geno Smith continues to miss time due to a groin injury. Still, this late-season trend in which he’s pacing teammate Tyler Lockett in usage is an encouraging sign for Smith-Njigba’s dynasty prospects. We'll see if he can maintain this success in a prime Week 16 spot vs. the Titans (fifth-best WR matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed).

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Eagles. It’s a surprise after multiple reports over the last 30 hours had Smith unlikely to play. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer said yesterday that Smith suffered a setback at some point this week. It’s safe to assume that he’ll be operating at well less than 100% tonight, making him a high-risk fantasy play.

Update: The Seahawks have not yet announced who will start tonight's game. Smith, QB Drew Lock, and QB Sean Mannion are all active tonight. That suggests at least some concern about Smith's ability to make it through the game, assuming he starts. We'll let you know if we hear who's starting before kickoff.

Dynasty Write-up
Relatively healthy seasons from D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett forced a middling rookie year from JSN. Lockett's play fell off in 2023, but moving on from him would mean a nearly $20 million dead cap hit. JSN will also break in a new HC (Mike MacDonald) after the team parted ways with Pete Carroll.
