Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets: Geno Smith

Geno Smith (QB – SEA): 12% rostered

  • Next opponents: @NO, ARI, @LAC
  • True value: $4
  • Desperate need: $11
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: Not many would have guessed that the Seattle Seahawks would be starting the more productive QB in addition to the haul of draft picks they received in the Russell Wilson trade. Geno Smith has been a revelation so far in 2022 and is on the heels of a 33.7-point performance in Detroit on Sunday. The Saints will be a difficult assignment next week, but Geno has produced in every game except for Week 2, when he left with an injury.
