Remember this time last year in Seattle when Genno Smith made a fuss? Yes, me too. In 2022, Smith will revitalize his career, earn Comeback Player of the Year, and most importantly finish last season as QB5 in the fantasy rankings. So who will be this year’s Geno Smith?
In the third installment of our Flip the Script series, Matt Harmon and Andy Behrens identify the best dark-horse QB contenders who could make the top 10 in the 2023 fantasy rankings.
But before that, the two discuss what’s new with Dalvin Cooke and Deandre Hopkins and what fantasies are best for both of them. The two then go through a list of candidates dubbed “Jeno Smith of the Year,” along with some shocking options. Andy is pushing hard to get Baker Mayfield back on his feet in Tampa, while Matt loves the QB in Washington. Colin, the producer, interrupted at the end of the discussion to break the balance.
From mediocre QB conversations to current great QBs, Matt ends the show by connecting with Madden 24 cover athlete and Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen. Allen shares what it means to be on the Madden cover, what to expect from Buffalo this season, and his thoughts on joining the Jets in Aaron Rodgers.
