yeah, i gotta join in the growing trend to recommend flacco here. i've never been a big schaub guy, and it's hard to recommend alex smith for fantasy football when he's more of an IRL football type player. if anything, i'd actually recommend alex smith if your team is loaded and you want the highest chance of the lowest bottoming out cuz i think he's a solid ~12-15 point play at the absolute worst. looking at his weekly tallies of approximately 17, 22, 14, 25, 10 thus far, if you figure ~9.5 points the lowest you'll risk and wanna stay locked in around ~15pts, smith very well might be your guy.
however, if you're like me and you wanna aim for 20/+ per week from your QB, then out of the choices between schaub and flacco i think the contract kid flacco has the best chance to get up into teh 20s and maybe even flirt with the 30s if the game turns into a proper shootout. but if it's a really tight matchup and you don't wanna risk getting under 10pts come hell or high water, welp, that's where i'd look to smith.
