Smith-Njigba's usage last year was comical. The team neutered him into a low aDOT player when he has the skills to be so much more. When he was aligned outside, he flashed the talent that had plenty of Fantasy GMs drafting him aggressively last year. Among 81 qualifying wide receivers last season, when he was running routes on the perimeter, Smith-Njigba ranked 15th in YPRR and fourth in TPRR. Among 61 qualifying receivers with at least 40 perimeter targets, he also ranked 14th in FD/RR. With a new head coach and offensive coordinator to revamp this offense and a retooled offensive line, Smith-Njigba should flourish in his sophomore season.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba pushing for big role in Seattle

Jaxon Smith-Njigba could be pushing for more playing time over Seattle’s top two wideouts: DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. His coaches have praised his work ethic and ability this offseason, further helping his cause.

Fantasy Impact

JSN probably will not supplant DK Metcalf for the top dog in the Seahawks’ offense. But, while Tyler Lockett is still a capable receiver, with him aging, Smith-Njigba could take over as the No.2 in 2024. Their new offensive coordinator, Ryan Grubb, regularly utilized three wide receiver sets at the University of Washington in 2023, something he’s likely to implement in Seattle. JSN should see the field with regularity this year and looks poised for a breakout campaign.
