Jets | New York could keep four quarterbacks

Tue, 03 May 2016 16:15:31 -0700

New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, and possibly free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could all be on New York's roster when the 2016 regular season commences. General manager Mike Maccagnan said if it's in the best interest of the team then they will keep four quarterbacks. "It's been done before," Maccagnan said. "To me, it's a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow and develop players."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets aren't investing as much as they should be, though, as Fitzpatrick is still on the free-agent market. Smith is in line to start right now, but he has proven to be too inconsistent to consider starting in tradition fantasy leagues. Fitzpatrick has the most value for the Jets and for fantasy purposes.

Jets | General manager excited for Geno Smith

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:31:38 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith could start for the Jets in 2016 if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not re-signed. That prospect has general manager Mike Maccagnan excited. "Right now, Geno has been a starter for us, and actually played quite well prior to getting hurt last year, and was doing a good job in the offseason," Maccagnan said. "So we're kind of excited to see what Geno can do, coming back. And we feel good about that."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets do still want to re-sign Fitzpatrick, and he's definitely a more reliable fantasy option than Smith. Even if Smith somehow does start, he shouldn't be starting on your fantasy teams.

Jets | No talks between Jets, Ryan Fitzpatrick

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 18:32:19 -0700

The last time free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets had any meaningful talks was "weeks ago," according to one source.

Fantasy Tip: The drama increases, as the Jets selected Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the NFL Draft. With Bryce Petty selected in the draft last season, the Jets are stockpiling talent at the position. Fitzpatrick might not be returning to Gang Green, who also still have Geno Smith.

Jets | Christian Hackenberg should sit first year

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 18:01:31 -0700

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets were in need of a quarterback with the iffy Fitzpatrick situation. Fitzpatrick will start if he does return, but Hackenberg could be the future of the quarterback position. Stay away from him in fantasy this season, though.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick may not play

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:30:02 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has told people he would rather not play football this season than play for the New York Jets under their latest contract offer.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick and the Jets are clearly at odds, and Fitz could very well end up on another team if New York isn't willing to increase their offer. The grizzly, veteran quarterback played like a borderline QB1 last season. He could be in the same territory in 2016 depending on where he's quarterbacking.

Jets | NYJ doing due diligence with Brian Hoyer

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 10:15:06 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is receiving some interest from the New York Jets, but Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is doing due diligence on Hoyer. Maccagnan also said talks to retain free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick may take some time.

Fantasy Tip: The writing is on the wall right there that the Jets are still looking to retain Fitzpatrick, and it's a matter of negotiating. Hoyer could be a low-end QB2 if he lands a starting gig. Fitzpatrick is a solid QB2 if he returns to the Jets.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick still Jets' top priority

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:58:45 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) remains the New York Jets' No. 1 priority despite free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) visiting Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine Fitzpatrick not eventually re-signing with the Jets, especially considering the extra money New York received when D'Brickashaw Ferguson retired. Fitzpatrick is coming off a career year and will be a borderline QB1 if he re-signs with the Jets.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick unlikely to sign soon

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 06:26:08 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) isn't expected to re-sign with the New York Jets before the NFL Draft, barring a significant breakthrough. The draft begins Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Fitz had a breakout year last year with 3,905 passing yards and 33 total touchdowns. He'll be a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 if he returns to the Jets.

Jets | No progress with Ryan Fitzpatrick

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 11:33:51 -0700

The New York Jets haven't made any progress in an attempt to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson. Johnson also said it wasn't imperative that the team bring Fitzpatrick back. "No, no. I think this is a big team. We've made our statements regarding Ryan Fitzpatrick well-known, and I'll stick with those that we've made," Johnson said.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a big gap in negotiations, the Jets are still expected to eventually reach an agreement with Fitz. However, the longer an impasse lasts, the better the chances that the two sides will move on. New York is the best place for the Amish Rifle in relation to his fantasy value, but even then he's at best a low-end QB1 depending on matchups.

Jets | Pay cut for D'Brickashaw Ferguson?

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 16:43:28 -0700

New York Jets OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson has been asked to take a significant pay cut in order to free up more money to re-sign free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets). Ferguson is slated to count $14.1 million against the 2016 salary cap, but the Jets would like cap relief for reasons including increasing their financial flexibility and to re-sign Fitzpatrick. The amount of the pay cut is unclear, but New York would likely want to free up around $4 million to $5 million. Ferguson is set to earn $10.4 million in salary and bonuses this season.
