Seahawks need to get the rookies involved

Seattle has 2 of the top rookies in this last year's draft in Zach Charbonnet and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. The team has yet to tap into Charbonnet's game-breaking ability, but JSN is starting to get more and more involved each week (the dude has 2 TDs in the past 3 weeks). The second key to victory is for Seattle to get these two involved in the game plan.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba should be targeted early and often. In the past few weeks he has led the lead in receiving and is making it difficult to not keep him involved in the game plan, regardless of who is healthy or not. The return to health of DK Metcalf is a good thing, but the team is clicking with JSN. The team needs to feed this kid the ball. His skill set is perfect against this weak secondary.

Charbonnet might have a breakout game with Kenneth Walker III struggling the past few weeks and nursing an injury. Why not give this kid all he can handle to see what he can do? This is the game where he could/should erupt. If these boys have big games, Seattle will win on Sunday.
