Geno Smith To Remain Seahawks' Starter

Saturday, March 23, 9:37 PM

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith will enter the 2024-25 campaign as the team's starter. New head coach Mike Macdonald has avoided the topic since taking over. However, he finally addressed the situation with NFL Media's Tom Pelissero. "Very confident in Geno," said MacDonald. "Geno's going to be our starter." The signal-caller had a down season in 2023-24, throwing for 3,624 yards, 20 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also completed just 64.7% of his throws, a significant reduction from the previous year. But Smith was the 2022 NFL Comeback Player of the Year, so if anyone can turn things around, it's him. Yet, if he struggles during the season, he could find himself sitting behind Sam Howell, who was acquired by the Commanders just over a week ago. For now, fantasy managers shouldn't reach for Smith in drafts. With that in mind, while the 33-year-old might struggle at times, especially under a new head coach, he'll likely have more than a few productive fantasy showings.

C.J. Stroud Struggles In Divisional Round Loss

Saturday, January 20, 11:43 PM

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud struggled on the road in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Stroud was not particularly efficient on Saturday, completing 19-of-33 passes for just 175 yards. The Ravens held the rookie in check, which resulted in him throwing zero touchdowns in a game for the fourth time this season. After a successful rookie campaign, Stroud's season will officially end. However, he has emerged as a top fantasy quarterback option and should be drafted pretty early in Superflex formats next season.
