Quarterback

Geno Smith: Smith has set a new season-high in passing yardage in each of the past two weeks. Ending Sunday with 367 passing yards and three touchdowns, Smith has thrown for over 8.0 yards per pass attempt in each of the past four weeks while throwing multiple touchdowns in each of the past six games. 

Smith has been a QB1 scorer in five straight weeks and in eight of his past 10 games. Smith has been a set-and-forget QB1 and one of the best stories of the season. 

Believe it or not, Carolina is objectively the toughest fantasy matchup Smith has had since facing the 49ers in Week 2. Carolina is ninth in passing points allowed per attempt (0.370). They are allowing 6.6 yards per pass attempt (sixth), 9.9 yards per completed pass (second), and a 3.7% touchdown rate (10th).
