Jaxon Smith-Njigba Paces Seahawks In Targets
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba's season-high 11 targets led the team in Thursday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The rookie ended the night with seven catches for 62 yards. The receptions also represented a new season-high, while the yardage fell one shy of his personal best set in Week 7 and matched in Week 9. Smith-Njigba almost brought in a 30-yard touchdown pass to boot, but it was overturned after review. His production has waned in the last couple of weeks after enjoying a mini-breakout following the Seahawks' Week 5 bye. Thursday's usage was a nice rebound and may signal that more work will come his way in Seattle's remaining games. Another big test awaits in Week 14, however, as the Seahawks have to tangle with the San Francisco 49ers for the second time in three weeks. In their matchup on Thanksgiving night, Smith-Njigba logged two catches for 41 yards.

Tyler Lockett Has Five Catches In Week 13
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett caught five passes for 47 yards in Thursday's 41-35 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The usually sure-handed veteran had a critical drop midway through the fourth quarter on what would have been a gain of at least 20 yards to move Seattle into the Cowboys' territory. Not much could be expected from Lockett ahead of the game given Dallas' successes on defense in 2023, but the fact that Lockett accomplished so little in the surprise shootout is disappointing. After 12 games, Lockett has logged a fantasy score in the double digits in PPR scoring just five times. Week 14 brings a rematch against the San Francisco 49ers who held Lockett to three catches for 30 yards on Thanksgiving night.

DK Metcalf Reaches End Zone Three Times
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf caught six of his eight targets for 134 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The scores doubled his season output and all of them came when he was marked by top-graded cornerback DaRon Bland. The first touchdown was an impressive catch-and-run on Seattle's fourth play of the game when Metcalf beat his coverage over the middle and turned on the jets, taking the ball 73 yards to the end zone making it the longest play for either side in the contest. After a lackluster start to the season, Metcalf may be heating up just in time for the fantasy playoffs, garnering 94 yards or more in three of his last four games. Next on deck is a rematch against the San Francisco 49ers who held Metcalf to three catches for 32 yards on Thanksgiving.

Geno Smith Records Four Touchdowns Against Cowboys
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith had an unexpected bounce-back against one of the league's toughest defenses. After the 49ers held him to 180 passing yards in Week 12, Smith went off against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, going 23-for-41 for 334 yards and three touchdowns. He added another six yards on two rushes, one of which was a five-yard dash for another score. The game wasn't without its miscues, however. Smith gave up an interception to DaRon Bland (who did NOT run it back for a pick-six) and while he avoided being sacked all game, he made several errant throws in the final five minutes while under heavy pressure from the Cowboys' pass rush. The Seahawks now have a mini-bye before their Week 14 rematch against San Francisco, where Smith will hope to build off of this performance and salvage Seattle's playoff chances.
