Geno Smith: Browning Nagle or Peyton Manning?

The first four games of Geno Smith’s career have been…interesting. He leads the league in turnovers (tied with Eli Manning) with 11, gets a lot of poor press reviews, and has created his own, new and improved butt fumble. Is he just another Jets’ folly? Another Mark Sanchez? Or, possibly worse, Browning Nagle?  
Here’s a Smith-Nagle comparison after four starts. Obviously, it’s not a flattering measure for Smith:
Quarterback Comp/Att Pct. TD INT Yds. Rating
Nagle 69/138 50.0 4 4 878 67.8
Smith 78/136 57.4 4 8 1,090 68.6
  I’m here to say it’s too early to pass judgment. In fact, in dynasty formats, I think he’s worth acquiring if his current owner is disillusioned by his inconsistency and turnovers. Nothing has happened that should discount his solid pre-draft projections, and he could be better than we think. Here’s why.
