Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram hauled in 11 passes on 12 targets for 95 yards and two scores in a loss at Cleveland on Sunday. It was a monster performance from the veteran tight end, whose 27-half PPR points marked the second most of his long career. Engram was reeling in passes all over the field with the Jaguars playing from behind the entire game and caught almost everything thrown his way. His 91% catch percentage was by far the highest on the team (minimum five targets), and he also received the most red zone looks on the day. This week also marked two straight games with touchdowns after being held out of the end zone in Weeks 1-12. Even with the tough matchup next week at Baltimore, Engram is a lineup lock in any size league.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. found the end zone one more time and almost grabbed his second 100-yard performance of the season. The veteran pass-catcher finished with 97 yards and a touchdown while catching four of his 10 targets. With ugly conditions on the field, Beckham wasn't able to get to some of the targets that he received, so the difference between the catches and receptions isn't as bad as the stats make it look. Beckham continues to find his rhythm in this offense and he'll look to keep things rolling against the Jaguars secondary in Week 15.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith (groin) has been ruled out for Week 14 versus the San Francisco 49ers. He had been listed as questionable and was trending in the wrong direction as gameday drew nearer. Drew Lock will start in his place but lacks fantasy appeal given his previous struggles and a very tough matchup against the Niners. DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba will all see their fantasy values take a hit, too.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith (groin) is trending in the wrong direction for Week 14, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He described the quarterback's injury as relatively serious and noted that Drew Lock practiced this week in preparation to start. It's unlikely that the Seahawks make an official decision on their quarterback situation until 90 minutes before kickoff. Regardless, neither Smith or Lock have much fantasy appeal given the difficult matchup.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Seahawks may not decide on quarterback Geno Smith's (groin) availability for Sunday's NFC West showdown with the 49ers until pregame warmups. The signal-caller, who remains questionable, is battling a groin issue, with Schefter adding that it's "considered a two-week injury." Of course, he could always try to play through the ailment, considering the Seahawks are quickly fading out of the playoff picture. On the other hand, Seattle might keep Smith off the field for a game or two, especially if it gets him back to 100% for a potential postseason push. At any rate, Drew Lock would likely be under center if Smith doesn't suit up on Sunday. But Lock hasn't been the most reliable quarterback over the years, so fantasy managers shouldn't consider him a viable replacement. Unfortunately, a possible Lock start wouldn't be an ideal scenario for D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and the rest of the Seattle pass-catchers versus a potent 49ers defense. .
