Geno Smith Looking To Build On Week 2 Success

Saturday, September 23, 3:11 AM

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith bounced back in a big way in Week 2. After signing a three-year, $105 million contract in the offseason Smith fell flat in the Seahawks' season opener, passing for just 112 yards against the Los Angeles Rams. Last week in Detroit, the 32-year-old veteran found his groove and went 32-for-41 for 328 yards through the air and threw two touchdown passes. The Seahawks will next take on the Carolina Panthers, who held Derek Carr to 228 passing yards and intercepted him once in their Week 2 matchup on Monday night. Smith is a viable starter in Week 3 and should put up high-end QB2 numbers.

Patrick Mahomes Looks To Torch Weak Bears Defense

Saturday, September 23, 8:32 PM

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes squares off with the Chicago Bears in Week 3 after exceeding the 300-yard threshold in last Sunday's clash against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old hopes for his first three-touchdown effort of the campaign after accomplishing this feat on eight occasions a year ago. The Bears defense has submitted the NFL's highest opponent passer rating (118.3) to Jordan Love and Baker Mayfield over the opening two games, and have only posted one sack thus far. It's a glaring smash spot for Mahomes on Sunday perhaps as Week 3's top-ranked QB1 after Chicago's defensive coordinator suddenly resigned ahead of this contest. While there's some blowout risk attached to this game that could reduce passing volume, season-long managers can obviously trust the reigning MVP as perhaps Week 3's most bankable play at the position.
