Kevin Smith will compete for a role with the Seahawks this season as a reserve receiver, but he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. Smith appeared in seven games in 2015, but he had just three catches for 43 yards. It will be hard for Smith to make an impact playing behind at least Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and Jermaine Kearse. He should not be drafted in the majority of leagues.
Smith was promoted from the practice squad on Tuesday. The Seahawks were only carrying four wide receivers, and with Paul Richardson (hamstring) ailing, Smith was brought in to provide depth. However, this is not an offense that lends itself to much wide receiver production, especially down the depth chart.
The Seahawks waived or released these players: offensive tackles Wade Smith and Cory Brandon, cornerback Terrell Thomas, running back Demitrius Bronson, safety Mike Dobson, defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat, cornerback Thomas Wolfe and receiver Kevin Smith.
The Seahawks signed former University of Washington receiver Kevin Smith, reports the Seattle Times. Smith was formerly with the Cardinals and Jaguars this offseason. In 2013, he made 50 catches for 765 yards for the Huskies. He becomes the 13th receiver on the Seahawks' roster.
