Geno Smith (QB, NYJ) - Waiver Wire Pickups

David Paul - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting (Add in Deep Leagues)

ANALYSIS: Smith is coming off an impressive debut in which he passed for 256 yards and rushed for an additional 47 yards on six scrambles.  Plenty of skeptics expected more than one INT in 38 pass attempts, but he did a decent job avoiding the mistakes that plagued him in preseason.  His scrambling ability makes him a redzone rushing TD candidate, too. The Pats are mighty but they didn't shutdown Bill rookie QB E.J. Manuel, which bodes well for Smith’s chances in Week Two.  And if the Jets are as bad as advertised, they should be throwing the ball a lot in the second half, which gives Smith a shot to get to 300 yards.
