New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith threw for 199 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 5 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football. After a disaster of a performance against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4, Smith had a nice performance on the big stage. Smith didn't turn the ball over, though he did take four sacks in the game. The rookie showed a lot of poise and led the Jets down the field in the two minute offense to get the Jets into field goal range for the game winning play.
Fantasy impact: Going into Monday Night Football, Smith had four touchdowns and eight interceptions on the year while throwing for 1,090 yards. He also had taken 14 sacks heading into Week 5. He looked good on the big stage despite the absence of Holmes and limited Hill, although the Falcons didn't get any pressure until the second half. If Smith can find some consistency and prevent mistakes, he could turn into a good fantasy option. The Jets will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
