Jets | Geno Smith gets a vote of confidence

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is second in the NFL with 21 interceptions thrown, but he has the confidence of Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. The play caller noted that while it may not appear as though Smith has improved from afar, the rookie passer certainly has made progress. Mornhinweg gave Smith credit for his intelligence, athleticism, talent and instincts.

Fantasy Tip: It is believed Smith is auditioning for his own job in 2014, although it appears likely he will receive some form of competition. He has a long way to go before becoming a viable weekly fantasy starter, but a full offseason with the first-team offense and an improved cast of weapons could do wonders. Smith will need to make huge strides before he can be drafted in standard formats.
