Geno Smith Has Alluring Week 4 Matchup

Saturday, September 30, 2:54 AM

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith will face the New York Giants on Monday night in Week 4. After a dud of a season opener, Smith recovered well in Weeks 2 and 3, averaging 312 passing yards with a 71% completion rate. The Giants rank third to last in defensive DVOA against the pass and give up the fourth most points to opposing quarterbacks. The Seahawks' offensive line is the biggest concern, as they are the worst in the league at allowing quarterback pressures. In spite of this, Smith has only suffered five sacks and thrown one interception in 2023. Fantasy managers can plug Smith in to start in Week 4 as he is a safe bet to put up QB2 numbers with QB1 upside in a favorable matchup.

Josh Allen An Exciting QB1 Versus Dolphins

Friday, September 29, 3:25 PM

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen didn't need to do much in last Sunday's 37-3 rout of the Washington Commanders, but that's likely to change in Week 4 versus the Miami Dolphins. The 27-year-old aims to pick apart Dolphins defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's zone-heavy defense, which may not activate Allen's lacking rushing opportunity thus far. Allen has electrified against the Fins in 10 career games, boasting a 106.1 passer rating and 27:5 TD:INT with 55.4 rushing yards per game. Buffalo hasn't played at a high pace yet this year, but that could change in a hurry if they want to keep up with Miami's furious offense. Allen does rank first in interceptable passes (10), per PlayerProfiler, so he carries plenty of weekly turnover risk. Still, we should feel pretty good about the two-time Pro Bowler as a top-line QB1 in a game with the slate's highest implied point total by far.
