Smith completed 12 of 22 pass attempts for 167 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

Smith got off to a great start when he placed a perfect deep ball to hit DK Metcalf in stride for an 84-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but that's pretty much where his effectiveness ended. The veteran backup did protect the football and kept Seattle in the contest until its last drive, but he was promptly sacked twice (five times overall), ending any chance of a heroic comeback. Smith does have a favorable matchup against Jacksonville on tap for Week 8, but the lack of upside makes him a hard sell.
