Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba led the team with seven targets in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Unfortunately, the opportunities did not equate to fantasy success as the rookie finished the day with four catches for 25 receiving yards. Smith-Njigba led the team in targets only one other time, in Week 7 when DK Metcalf was shelved due to injury. Perhaps the extra chances were due to the chemistry developed in the preseason with spot starter Drew Lock who was in for Geno Smith (groin). Smith-Njigba still has not had the big breakout fantasy managers were hoping to see by now but he is getting a fair amount of work, getting five or more targets in all but three games this season. In Week 15, the former Buckeye is a viable flex play against the Philadelphia Eagles, who have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers in 2023.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett led the team in receptions and receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The ninth-year veteran caught all six of his targets for 89 receiving yards, his highest total since Week 10. Concerns that quarterback Geno Smith (groin) would cede a start to backup Drew Lock came true, but it did not hamper Lockett who outdid his three-catch, 30-yard performance against the Niners two weeks ago. Lockett has not provided many boom weeks for fantasy managers in 2023, but he provides a safe floor in PPR leagues. Next week the Seahawks play the Philadelphia Eagles who have allowed the most receptions and touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in the league, making Lockett a viable option even if Lock draws another start.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf was held to two catches on five targets in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. His receptions went for a total of 51 yards and included a 31-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Metcalf's positive regression continues as he has now found the end zone in three of the Seahawks' last four games. The score salvaged another otherwise blase day against the 49ers, who limited Metcalf to 3 catches for 32 yards in their last meeting two weeks ago. In Week 15, the Seahawks will be up against the porous secondary of the Philadelphia Eagles who are allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Metcalf's potential in that game is high, though expectations may need to be checked if Drew Lock is asked to step in for Geno Smith (groin) again.

Seattle Seahawks running back Zach Charbonnet (knee) led the team in rushing attempts and yards against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. His nine carries and 44 rushing yards were all that it took to lead the Seahawks' ground game in Week 14. He also had a single reception for four yards as well. Kenneth Walker III (oblique) was in action for the first time since Week 11 and took back his starting role, but had one fewer carry than Charbonnet. Walker will likely retain his starting role going forward, but Charbonnet's efforts may make their workloads closer to a 50/50 split as the season winds down. Next up, the Seahawks take on the Philadelphia Eagles who have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game in 2023 but have allowed 152.3 rushing yards per game over the last three weeks.

Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III (oblique) returned to action on Sunday after missing the last two weeks due to a non-contact oblique injury that knocked him out in Week 11. Walker gained 21 rushing yards on eight carries and caught four of his five targets for another 33 yards through the air. The second-year back drew the start but split carries with rookie Zach Charbonnet (knee) almost evenly as both needed to be eased back into action while dealing with their respective injuries. Walker will likely retain the starting role going forward but may cede more action to Charbonnet whose breakout in Week 13 was interrupted by a knee injury that took him out of that game. On tap is a meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles who have allowed 152.3 rushing yards per game in their last three contests.
