Geno Smith was incredibly impressive in the first half of the New York Jets‘ Week 5 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, but the odds are that Smith’s efforts didn’t mean much to your fantasy football team or league for that matter. The Jets’ quarterback was abused by the Tennessee Titans‘ defense as he threw two interceptions and fumbled in one of the most crucial plays of the game.
Thankfully, Smith was able to rebound against Atlanta has he threw two touchdowns in the first half alone even without his top wide receiver to this point Santonio Holmes.
The Jets have been a national punchline for the better part of a year, but this rookie has done his best to put old stereotypes to bed with excellent play and great focus. Believe it or not; Smith has scored more than double digits three different times this year with an eye-popping 24-point game against the Buffalo Bills. Now, anyone with Peyton Manning or Drew Brees on their fantasy team should understand that those two guys aren’t likely to be playing in the later weeks of the season.
Therefore, Smith is definitely worth a pick up this early in the year if you have Super Bowl expectations for your team. Smith plays a less-than stellar Miami Dolphins‘ defense in Week 17, which means this Jets’ quarterback could definitely be worth a start when it comes right down to it on what fantasy football owners call “Super Sunday.”
