Questions at Quarterback Impacting the Seahawks’ 2022 Projections
For years, quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Bobby Wagner were the faces of the Seattle Seahawks. Both were selected in the 2012 NFL Draft and became two of the best players in franchise history.
Wilson was traded to Denver for a boatload of draft picks while Wagner signed with the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams after being released by the Seahawks. Their departures impact the Seattle Seahawks future betting odds.
The ultimate irony is that after allowing Wilson to play behind subpar offensive lines in the latter stages of his run with the Seahawks, the first of the draft picks that headed to Seattle in the trade was used to select offensive tackle Charles Cross.

Seattle Seahawks Future Betting Odds to Make the Playoffs
For the first time since Wilson won the starting quarterback job in Seattle as a rookie in 2012, the Seahawks have a battle for the starting quarterback position.
Geno Smith, who played five games with Seattle over the previous two seasons, is competing with Drew Lock, who was acquired in the trade for Wilson, to be the starting quarterback.
The good news is that receivers Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are still in Seattle giving the Seahawks an outstanding duo of receivers. Their presence is not enough for the Seattle Seahawks future betting odds projecting them to be a playoff team in 2022.
Is Geno Smith the Answer for Seahawks?
- Passing Yards: 1450.5
- Touchdowns: 8.5
- Interceptions: 5.5
After going 8-8 as a starter as a rookie with the New York Jets in 2013, Geno Smith is 5-13 as a starting quarterback in the NFL. Just one of those wins came with Seattle. The early reports have Smith emerging as the starter now that Wilson is a member of the Denver Broncos.
Smith’s numbers in the four games he started with Seattle in 2021 were solid as he completed 68.4% of his passes for 702 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. The Seahawks would gladly take similar numbers from Smith this season. Until that happens, the Seattle Seahawks future betting odds won’t be encouraging ones.
Penny Could take over for Carson as Seattle’s Lead Back
Not only did Seattle lose Wilson but also top rusher Chris Carson has retired.
A two-time 1,000-yard rusher, Carson was limited to four games a season ago. He ran for 3,502 yards in five seasons with the Seahawks. Losing a franchise quarterback is tough enough, but when you add in the departure of a top rusher… there are so many questions for Seattle on offense in 2022 after the Seahawks finished 20th in total offense a season ago.
Seattle has options at running back. Second-round pick Kenneth Walker as well as Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas could factor into the rotation. The front-runner to be the top back is Rashaad Penny. When looking at the 2021 Seattle Seahawks stats, he led the Seahawks with 749 yards while playing in 10 games. He had 671 yards over his last five games and that included a career-high 190 in an upset of the Arizona Cardinals in the regular-season finale.
Will Penny Emerge From Crowded Group of Running Backs?
- Rushing Yards: 800.5
- Rushing Touchdowns: 6.5 (+100o)
Penny had nearly as many rushing yards in 2021 as he did in his first three seasons combined and his six scoring runs were one more than he had coming into the 2021 season.
Much like the quarterback position, it is too early to tell how things will shake out at running back without Carson there to lead the way.
- Receptions: 64.5
- Rushing Yards: 825.5
- Rushing Touchdowns: 4½ (-140o)
Lockett displayed some big-play ability in 2021 when he averaged 16.1 yards per catch after averaging 11.6 yards per reception over the previous two seasons.
Lockett caught more than 72% of his targets over the last two seasons. Will he be as effective now that the accurate Wilson is no longer the one throwing him the ball?
While the projections are calling for a regression in Lockett’s receiving numbers, there’s a reason why he had more than 1,000 yards in each of his last three seasons. The NFL future odds are projecting a bit of a step back for Lockett due to questions at quarterback.
Metcalf Eyeing Another 1,000-yard season
- Receptions: 66.5
- Receiving Yards: 900.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 6.5 (-105o)
Nobody figures to miss Wilson more than Metcalf. Things were already trending in the wrong direction as Metcalf went from averaging 15.7 yards per catch during the 2020 season to a career-low 12.9 a season ago. Metcalf does have 22 touchdown catches in the last two seasons, so he is clearly a productive player in the red zone.
Seattle had just a 5-6 record in 2021 when Metcalf had more than 50 receiving yards so his individual success didn’t translate when it came to wins for the Seahawks.
- Receptions: 57.5
- Receiving Yards: 580.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 3.5
Fant was another piece of the package that Seattle got in return for Wilson. Fant had nearly identical numbers over the last two seasons and he could have his third straight season with more than 60 catches. The projections have Fant’s numbers dropping slightly from what he put up in each of the last two campaigns.
