Fantasy Football Player Notes

2022 Draft Rankings

Geno Smith Note

Don't label me as a Geno Smith stan, but I was pleasantly surprised by his metrics last year during his brief run as the starter for Seattle. Last season he was the 16th highest graded passer per PFF while also sitting at third in big-time throw rate and second in adjusted completion rate (minimum 100 dropbacks, per PFF). While it's impossible to expect him to keep up this lofty pace for a full season, even borderline league-average play from Smith would greatly improve the outlook for all of the skill players in this offense, beginning with D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. While Smith won't be on my radar in drafts outside of sicko 16-team Superflex leagues, he might be good enough this season to support Seattle's other fantasy options.

Drew Lock Note

Drew Lock has been nothing short of terrible so far in the NFL. He has never finished higher than 32nd in PFF passing grades while also watching his adjusted completion rate dip in each season (minimum 100 dropbacks, per PFF). I'll be fading Seattle pass catchers this season if Lock gets the nod any week.
