That Helps No One: Geno Smith goes Broadway

A lot of things have been said and written about Geno Smith this season. Let me add two more that probably haven’t been used much — if at all. Fantasy stud.

That was the case on Sunday when the Jets rookie quarterback threw for 214 yards with two passing touchdowns while rushing for another 48 yards and a score in New York’s win over the Cleveland Browns. In total, it adds up to 27.36 points — more than Cam NewtonDrew Brees and Adrian Peterson. Combined. It was also a season high for the former West Virginia star in an up-and-down season that has now seen him score better than 20 points twice in the past three weeks.

All of that is wonderful news, except that Smith is owned in a mere 5.6 percent of NFL.com leagues and is started in 0.6 percent of leagues. Chances are pretty good that few, if any of those with him in their starting lineup are playing for a fantasy championship. So you want to know who Geno Smith’s big day helped? Yep … that helped no one.
