Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith finished 23-of-32 for 209 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He lost a yard on his only carry and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Smith also took five sacks. The 31-year-old was asked to be nothing more than a game manager in this one, as more than a third of his passing yardage came on the final drive of regulation and in overtime. This showing figures to be a good preview of what he will likely do in Week 7 in what figures to be a difficult matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Smith should only start in two-quarterback or superflex leagues for as long as he is filling in for the injured Russell Wilson.

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith completed 10 of his 17 passes for 131 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, Oct. 7. He also ran three times for 23 yards.
Huddle Up: Smith came on after Wilson injured his finger and lead the team on back-to-back scoring drives, including a 98 yarder for a touchdown. The team (and fantasy owners) obviously hope that Wilson's injured finger won't keep him out of action, but Smith at least provided some hope that players like DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett wouldn't fall off a statistical cliff if Wilson does miss time. As for Smith, he's unlikely to deliver appreciable fantasy value as a starter.
