Jaxon Smith-Njigba leads receiving in elevated role

Seahawks rookie WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba led the team with 6 receptions and 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. His 7 targets trailed only WR Tyler Lockett's 8. Seattle kept three WRs on the field more than usual in a game that found the Seahawks down 17-3 at the half and 30-3 by the end of the third quarter. Four of JSN's receptions came after Baltimore had pushed the lead to 30-3. The rookie has seen more usage since the Week 5 bye, but this game likely elevated that further with such negative game script for Seattle. JSN still shouldn't be in starting consideration for most leagues going forward, though he's closer since the bye than he was before. A Week 10 matchup with Washington adds upside to everyone in the passing game.
