This is a win/loss format column with the goal of 250 yards passing + rushing and two touchdowns. Every time a quarterback selected finishes the NFL fantasy week in the top twelve or accumulates 250 yards passing/rushing and two touchdowns, it will be graded as a win. Anything short of that, you guessed it-a loss.
Using ESPN standard scoring / PPR leagues, the quarterback of the week must be 30% or less owned.
Week Two Game Of Throws Selection
Alex Smith, QB, Washington Redskins $6,000 Draft Kings, 25% owned in ESPN fantasy leagues
The week one matchup between Washington and Arizona looking back should probably have been a bit easier of a play selection, in short, Alex Smith just wins games and Sam Bradford doesn’t. As we come off a week one win of streaming quarterbacks with Andy Dalton, we’re going back to the same well going up against the Indianapolis defense, and frankly, if it isn’t broke, don’t’ fix it. Indianapolis showed that they have made zero improvements to their back end and despite Andrew Luck looking every bit back, the defense is going to hold back this team and force Luck into a ton of throws a game, which is great for fantasy owners, over bettors, and stat chasers. Alex Smith is coming off a very workmanlike Alex Smith game with a stat line of 21/30 for 255 and two touchdowns, while adding 14 yards rushing, and I think that exact stat line should be the absolute floor for him this week. It’s not pretty, but he’ll be effective.
