Jets | Todd Bowles lauds Geno Smith

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 09:55:06 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith showed maturity in 2015, and head coach Todd Bowles expressed confidence in New York's contingency plans at quarterback if they can't re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. "We thought Geno matured last year," Bowles said. "It's something you couldn't see because he didn't play as much, but you saw it in practice and you saw it in his demeanor in off-the-field stuff. Geno is still our quarterback, he's still on our team."

Fantasy Tip: If Fitzpatrick doesn't come back, expect the Jets to bring in another quarterback to compete with Smith for the starting job. Smith has shown flashes of brilliance in the NFL, but he's been far too inconsistent for fantasy owners to draft him as anything more than a backup if he's starting in 2016.

Jets | No rush in Ryan Fitzpatrick talks

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 16:55:33 -0700

The New York Jets have no sense of urgency in contract talks to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson. Fitzpatrick could miss the entire offseason program because of his familiarity with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's offense. General manager Mike Maccagnan said QB Geno Smith is a "definite possibility" as a replacement if Fitzpatrick doesn't return.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets and Fitz are at a stalemate right now, so stay tuned. The Amish Rifle would have the highest fantasy value if he stayed in New York, where he set career highs last year, but even then he'd be a high-end fantasy backup, at best.

Jets | Geno Smith ready to lead team?

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 16:56:30 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is capable of leading the franchise if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't re-sign, according to free-agent OG Willie Colon. "I think he's taken on everything," said Colon. "I think he's ready to rise. I still have confidence in him. I think with the pieces we have around him, and continue to put around him, he can be successful. I honestly believe that. I think Geno's a good quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Smith would have solid weapons to work with on offense if he becomes the starter for the Jets, but expecting him to be more than a mid-range QB2 in 2016 would be asking for disappointment.

Jets | Geno Smith remains backup

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 11:53:09 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains the team's backup quarterback right now, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets will work to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick after he produced a fine 2015 campaign that fell just short of a playoff berth. As long as Smith is holding a clipboard, he has zero fantasy appeal.

Jets | Bryce Petty has shot at No. 2 job

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 10:39:30 -0800

The team reportedly wants Petty to beat out Geno Smith, but intends to keep the latter around during the final year of his contract.

Jets | Both Jets QBs probable

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 11:17:57 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and QB Geno Smith (shoulder) practiced Wednesday, Nov. 11, and are probable for Week 10 Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) played well with 21.6 fantasy points last week, but he has one of the tougher matchups against the Buffalo Bills. He's not a FantasyScore option with a lot of upside.
