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.

Kyler Murray Ends Season On A High Note

Monday, January 8, 12:50 AM

In the final game of the 2023 season, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray showcased flashes of his pre-injury brilliance, completing 22 of 30 pass attempts for 262 yards and a touchdown. Adding 33 rushing yards on five attempts, Murray closed the season on a high note, reminiscent of his dual-threat prowess. The 27-year-old's performance in the last two outings reflected his potential for a bounce-back season in 2024. Following his return from ACL surgery in Week 10, Murray struggled to regain his fantasy stud status. However, if he can maintain numbers close to his recent performances, averaging 241.3 passing yards, 29.7 rushing yards per game, and a 6:1 TD: INT ratio, fantasy managers can anticipate a resurgence from the dynamic two-sport athlete.
