Jaxon Smith-Njigba leads Seahawks in targets

Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba led the team and set a season-high with 11 targets in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys. He parlayed the volume into seven catches and 62 yards. It looked like he'd have a much bigger night when he hauled in a 30-yard TD late in the first half -- but it was (questionably) ruled incomplete on review. It was still an encouraging game for JSN from a volume perspective, although it was likely at least partly matchup-induced against a Dallas defense tougher against outside WRs than slots. Smith-Njigba will likely remain behind WRs D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett in the pecking order going forward. But the rookie is trending up, with four games of 12+ PPR points over his last seven outings. He'll be a shaky Week 14 fantasy play against a tough 49ers defense that just held him to a 2-41-0 line on Thanksgiving. But Smith-Njigba gets plus matchups the following two weeks against the Eagles and Titans.
