Jets | Not naming starting QB
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has refused to name his starting quarterback between QBs Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith for the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 17. Ryan said he won't hesitate to wait until after the third preseason game to name the starter for the regular season. Sanchez hasn't separated himself from the competition as many had expected, even though he's seen the majority of first-team reps in practice the last two days. QB Geno Smith (ankle) also mildly sprained his ankle in the preseason opener. Privately, the team is hoping Smith can step up and win the job, but his play has dipped in the last week, possibly because of his injury.
Fantasy Tip: The longer this QB competiton drags on, the better chance Smith has of taking the job from Sanchez. That wouldn't be a surprise at this point. If you have to select one of these QBs as your third passer, Smith is the easy choice. He has the upside because he can make things happen with his legs.
