Matthew Stafford A Risky Option In Week 3

Saturday, September 23, 8:50 PM

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has a much easier matchup this week than he did in the team's Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Stafford has thrown for over 300 yards in each of the first two games this season. Despite the extreme passing volume, the 35-year-old has averaged just over 14 fantasy PPG and is the overall QB22 through two weeks. While the Rams' Week 3 matchup, Cincinnati Bengals, have given up more on the ground than through the air, they still have a very young and inexperienced secondary. Stafford is a low-end QB1 for Week 3 and is mainly an option in superflex leagues.

Geno Smith Finds Success Again In Week 3

Monday, September 25, 3:50 AM

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith came up four yards shy of his second 300-yard game in as many weeks in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. In Week 3, he went 23-for-36 for 296 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Smith made things work from behind a makeshift offensive line, though Carolina's defensive front kept the quarterback on his toes and registered two sacks. Next week, the Seahawks take on the New York Giants in a Monday night matchup. The Giants allowed Brock Purdy to throw for 310 yards and two touchdowns on Thursday night in Week 3. Look for Smith to keep building on his recent success in Week 4 and push his way into QB1 territory again.
