Geno Smith In The Team's Plans For Now

Wednesday, February 28, 12:25 AM

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said on Tuesday that quarterback Geno Smith is the team's starter "until he's not," when asked whether Smith is the team's starter "right now." Smith is coming off an uneven 2023 season and has two years left on his three-year, $75 million deal he signed last March. His $12.7 million base salary for next season became fully guaranteed when the team kept him on their roster past Feb. 16. However, it's believed Seattle would still think about a possible trade. If they were to trade Smith, they'd assume $27 million in dead money, but a new team could acquire him for only $12.9 million next season. The 33-year-old won Comeback Player of the Year in 2022 but was merely average last season. If Smith isn't traded, he'll remain Seattle's starting QB entering the 2024 season and will be best viewed as a QB2 in fantasy.

C.J. Beathard Leads Jaguars To A Much-Needed Win

Monday, January 1, 12:46 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback C.J. Beathard threw for 178 yards off 17-for-24 passing in Sunday's shutout win over the Carolina Panthers. He added three carries for 24 yards. The signal-caller didn't throw a touchdown pass. However, Beathard at least did enough to help the Jags snap a four-game losing streak. Jacksonville needs a win over the Titans in Week 18 to lock up a postseason berth. There's a chance Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) could be back, meaning Beathard will head back to the bench. Still, fantasy managers can't trust either quarterback, so Lawrence's availability versus the Titans won't mean a thing either way.
