News: Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith was forced to leave Thursday's game against the 49ers in the first half, as a result of a concussion. He would not return to the game.
Analysis: Smith is not much of a contributor in his second season in the league. He has just four tackles this season, and should continue to be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
News: Seattle rookie LB Malcolm Smith recorded the first sack of his NFL career on Sunday against Baltimore. He had two tackles on the day as the Seahawks won the game, 22-17.
Analysis: Smith now has eight tackles on the year in his seven games of action. The seventh round pick out of USC hasn't done enough this season to warrant any Fantasy attention though. Leave him on waivers.
News: The Seahawks added much depth to their defense via the 2011 draft when they picked Mississippi State LB K.J. Wright (Round 4), Stanford CB Richard Sherman (Round 5), Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree (Round 5), Clemson CB Byron Maxwell (Round 6), LSU DE Lazarius Levingston (Round 7) and USC LB Malcolm Smith (Round 7).
Analysis: Of these players, Wright and Legree have the best shot at playing sooner than later, though both are behind first-round picks on the depth chart. Both Wright and Legree are worth late-round fliers in the deepest of dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts.
