Chargers' Geno Smith: Enters game late in fourth quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith attempted one pass for eight yards and also carried the ball twice for minus-2 yards in the 38-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Smith entered the game midway through the fourth quarter with the win already well in hand. Given the success of Philip Rivers thus far (1,702 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, three interceptions), it would be stunning to see Smith earn significant playing time other than due to a major injury to the team's franchise quarterback.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Expected to be named backup QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is expected to be named the backup quarterback after a preseason battle for the role with Cardale Jones, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The former 2013 second-round pick completed four of his six attempts for 16 yards in Thursday's 23-21 preseason win over the 49ers; hardly eye-popping totals, but the performance was evidently enough to solidify Smith's position as the No. 2 QB on the depth chart. Smith would be an intriguing fantasy option situated alongside a plethora of talented weapons such as Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon, but given Philip Rivers has never missed a game since taking over as the starter 13 years ago, it's unlikely he'll ever get that opportunity.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Ugly outing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith completed seven of his 11 passing attempts for 45 yards and an interception in Saturday's 36-7 preseason loss to the Saints.

Locked in a heated battle with Cardale Jones for the backup position, Smith didn't do much to separate himself, tossing two pick-six interceptions, one of which was called back due to a penalty. The former Jets starter did enter Saturday's preseason game after Jones, but that decision seemed based more on getting the younger QB reps with the second unit as opposed an indication of the Chargers preferred pecking order. Regardless of who wins the battle, neither player appears to be in a position to garner any sort of fantasy relevancy considering Philip Rivers' excellent health throughout his career.

Chargers' Geno Smith: Comes to terms with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has reached an agreement with the Chargers on a one-year deal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith played for the Giants in 2017, starting one game and completing 21-of-34 pass attempts for 212 yards and a touchdown. The move brings depth to the Chargers' quarterbacking corps, with an aging Philip Rivers now backed up by both Smith and Cardale Jones. Whether Smith or Jones will take over as the No. 2 remains to be determined.

Geno Smith: Taking meeting with Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has a visit scheduled with the Seahawks on Friday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Smith started 29 combined games in his first two seasons with the Jets, but he yielded the floor to Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2015 and 2016, appearing in just three more games with the club. Signing on with the Giants last March, Smith proceeded to win the backup job to Eli Manning and even took over under center when former coach Ben McAdoo decided to end his streak of 210 consecutive regular-season starts in Week 13. Prior to his meeting in Seattle, Smith connected with the Chargers on Thursday, so the veteran QB appears to be closing in on his next gig. Both locales have openings, but at least Philip Rivers has another quarterback (Cardale Jones) on the depth chart. The same cannot be said for Russell Wilson after the Seahawks waived Trevone Boykin earlier this week due to an impending legal issue.
