Sun, 05 Oct 2014 16:46:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Geno Smith will start in Week 6, head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was benched at halftime of Sunday's blowout loss in San Diego, but Michael Vick was unable to spark the team in his two quarters of action. Regardless of which quarterback starts, neither is useful from a fantasy perspective.

Jets | Eric Decker does not practice

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 10:53:43 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 19. Head coach Rex Ryan suggested that Decker would not have to practice to be able to play in the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: With a Monday night game, Decker is a bit of a risky play in Week 3 since we don't know his status and there is a risk of him not being able to go. Decker would cost $6,100 (12.20% of cap) in FantasyScore for Week 3.

Jets | Team wants Eric Decker to practice

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:24:28 -0700

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan wants WR Eric Decker (hamstring) to test his injured hamstring in the coming days. The team would like to see him participate in practice Saturday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: If Decker can get back on the practice field on Saturday, we would get a better idea of where he is at heading into Monday night. Still, with a FantasyScore price of $6,100 (12.20% of cap), Decker is a risky play in Week 3.

Although the New York Jets are in need of cornerbacks, they are unlikely to pursue free-agent CB Champ Bailey, who was cut by the New Orleans Saints on Saturday, Aug. 30.

Jets | Rex Ryan calls 2014 a transition year

Sat, 19 Jul 2014 06:49:32 -0700

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks his team can do special things in 2014, but also called this season a transition year. Ryan understands people not seeing that right now. "What they're missing is and this isn't their fault is they don't see what I see in the building every day," Ryan said. "I think it's a transition year, but we're going to bring it to another level. I know where I want this team to go and that's where I expect this team to go. So, you know, are we a better team? Dang right. . . . That may be a fact that we're rebuilding this team, but by no means does that mean that I don't expect to improve on where we were."

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan praised QB Geno Smith for how he finished the 2013 season. "I think there are very few players that grew as much as Geno did," Ryan said. "He had to come a million miles, and he did. When you look at the way he closed out, we saw our team ascending and part of that was the way Geno played. Statistically, he had the second-highest quarterback rating over the last month of the season. I think that's something that people don't focus on, but it's a fact."

Jets | Rex Ryan wont commit to Geno Smith as starter

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 10:38:02 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan would not name QB Geno Smith the starter for Week 1 in 2014, saying it is too early in the off season to make that decision. "With anything, you can't say anything with any certainty right now because you're just starting the off season," he said. "You don't know who your roster is going to be and things like that. It's probably not the best thing to say this guy is going to be a starter or this or that. Let's just let it play out."

Fantasy Tip: Even without Ryan saying it, Smith is the favorite to start at quarterback in Week 1, assuming the team does not make a move at the position in the off season.
