After over 160 snaps in 2018, George Fant finally got to put his soft hands to use.

Lining up to the right of Germain Ifedi, Fant leaked out into the flat as Russell Wilson took a three step drop. Fant, with green grass in front of him, adjusted to the football well, before turning up field and gaining a handful of yards after the catch.

Though he could’ve done better finishing his run, Fant turned his first career target into nine yards.

It was only a matter of time until Fant saw a ball come his way. Per the Monday Night Football broadcast, the Seattle Seahawks have used a sixth offensive linemen the most in the NFL this season, and over twice as often as the closest team.

The Seahawks’ use of Fant paid off on Monday night, with a comically satisfying nine yard rumble and 214 yards rushing as a team.
