JSN (wrist) expected to play Week 1
9 months ago

Seattle Seahawks rookie WR, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, is expected to play Week 1 against the Rams, according to Pete Carroll. JSN underwent wrist surgery last month, and has seemingly made a great recovery.

JSN underwent wrist surgery just last month, but looks ready to make his NFL debut, Sunday against the Rams, according to Head Coach Pete Carroll. This is a surprisingly quick turnaround and a positive outcome for the young WR. He “hasn’t made a peep” about his wrist, said Carroll on Wednesday, and that there is no hesitation to start him on Sunday.

This is obviously great news for the Seahawks pass attack to get their first-round pick back into the mix. Hopefully, you bought the discount, thinking that he would certainly miss games, but his apparent Wolverine healing ability proved too strong for him to miss a game. This is good news for Geno Smith, going against a suspect Rams secondary on Sunday, a perfect matchup to prove that last year was not a fluke, and an opportunity to put up big fantasy numbers. This is a slight hit for DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, who obviously would have benefitted from JSN being out, but overall not a huge dip. Jake Bobo, the other rookie from this class, looks to be the odd man out despite his rise to the WR3 slot with the other reciever injuries. Look for Jaxon Smith-Njigba to make a splash in his first game out.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba To Have Surgery, Out "3-4 Weeks"
9 months ago

Seattle Seahawks rookie wideout Jaxon Smith-a John is set to have surgery for a wrist injury. The team optimistic that he will return in 3-4 weeks.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba (JSN) suffered a wrist injury in the second week of the preseason versus the Dallas Cowboys. Head Coach Pete Carroll said JSN had suffered “a slight fracture” and they are staying “optimistic with their timetable of 3-4 weeks”.

Having surgery before the season starts is usually not a great sign, especially for an electric rookie looking to make his first NFL start. If everything goes according to the timetable, JSN should be set to make his NFL debut in week 2-3. At worst, the team could hold him out until the bye (Week 5), making his debut in Cincinnati.

Given this news, JSN likely will recover with much of the season left to go. This might be a boost for Tyler Lockett, whom JSN shares a similar role. If JSN’s ADP falls, he could become a value pick for the second half of the season. He has been receiving praise for his training camp highlights, so do not expect the wrist to derail his hype train.
