The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 7 Quarterbacks

Geno Smith

Geno Smith vs ARI

Geno has largely failed to recreate the magical 2022 season, as a banged up offensive line has held this passing game back. Despite only scoring 13 points and throwing two picks last week in a loss to Cinci, Smith threw 41 times and his 323 yards were the second-highest of the season. Arizona has been a “get healthy” defense the last few weeks, and with a few starters on the line back, look for Seattle’s passing game to break out in Week 7.

Jalen Hurts vs MIA

Hurts was harassed into one of the worst starts of his career last week against the Jets. The three interceptions tied a career high, and he looked absolutely defeated on that meek final drive. Philly returns home against a Miami defense that has been mediocre at best. With a 51.5 over/under this week (the highest by far of Week 7 games) Vegas thinks this could be a scoring bonanza. Every season we get a game that’s a fantasy feast, and this one could be it!

Brock Purdy@ MIN (MON)

The Cleveland defense has been relentless this season, and Purdy was the latest quarterback to get caught in the buzzsaw. He looked very ordinary in his first regular season loss, missing open receivers and constantly having to throw into tight windows. But like a warm spring day, those windows should be much more open as he faces the worst pass defense in the NFL. Despite injuries to Samuel and McCaffery, Prudy should have the opportunity to put up QB1 numbers.

Kirk Cousins vs SF

In a game that features the worst pass defense in the NFL, unfortunately for Cousins it also features the NFL’s best pass defense. San Fran has picked off double the amount of passes (10) than they have allowed to find the endzone (5). Cousins struggled mightily last week against the lowly Bears, as it seems the loss of all-world receiver Justin Jefferson had a major impact. Now imagine that! With the passing game adjusting and the line continuing to buckle under pressure, keep Cousins on the bench.

Trevor Lawrence @ NO (THU)

Lawrence and the Jags passing game has been incredibly inconsistent this season. Drafted as a mid-level QB1, Lawrence has as many touchdowns as Jimmy Garoppolo and has been outshined by the likes of Russell Wilson and Sam Howell. Not only is he nursing a sprained knee on a short week, but it's a road game against a fierce Saints defense. There are simply too many negatives in this equation to trust Lawrence.

Russell Wilson vs GB

Somehow Wilson is 4th in the NFL with 12 touchdown passes, and has been a starter level fantasy quarterback, but his best game came against a brutal Commander defense, and this Denver passing game has regressed each week, looking absolutely dreadful last week against KC. Green Bay has yielded the 10th fewest fantasy points to the position, and I think Denver tries to win this with a heavy dose of its backfield.
