Jets | Geno Smith to enter camp as starter

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:19:13 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback ahead of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick entering training camp this summer, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. "You can't have equal first-team reps with a quarterback," Bowles said. "Geno will start out taking them, but that doesn't mean that Ryan can't take his spot. If Ryan's playing better and performing better…" Bowles continues to say that it's too early to judge Smith off his tape alone.

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback battle could be far from over in New York, especially if they draft a QB in the first round this year. If not, Smith and Fitzpatrick will battle it out this summer, and neither is likely worth drafting in standard fantasy football leagues.

Jets | NYJ comfortable with QBs

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 12:36:38 -0700

New York Jets QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are expected to compete for the starting job during training camp, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is comfortable with them as their top two quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will receive more work during offseason workouts since Fitzpatrick is recovering from a broken leg, but the two quarterbacks will compete for the starting job during training camp. Owners should consider whoever wins the job as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Jets | New York still committed to Geno Smith

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 10:59:32 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith may not have big competition for the starting quarterback job, because the team is not committed to selecting a quarterback with the sixth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Jets are committed to make Smith a successful starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a solid finish to the 2014 season with six touchdowns and two interceptions in the last four games. There is a chance that the Jets could add a quarterback during the offseason to compete with Smith, but Smith appears to be the leading candidate for the job. Smith should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy drafts next season.

Jets | Hope to turn Geno Smith into winner

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 20:16:55 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith might soon have company despite the fact general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is "committed" to trying to turn Smith into a winning quarterback. The team met with free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) Wednesday, Feb. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been mostly a disaster in his first two seasons, and he is certainly not a quarterback fantasy owners can pin their hopes to. Smith likely would need to take a giant leap forward to be the starter in Week 1 of the 2015 season.

Jets | QB situation still unknown in NY

Sat, 31 Jan 2015 10:00:04 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he still hasn't received a definitive answer from head coach Todd Bowles on the team's quarterback situation.

Fantasy Tip: Smith, Michael Vick and Matt Simms are the only quarterbacks currently on the roster. None of them, however, should be considered a starting fantasy quarterback at this point.

Jets | Geno Smith shows promise

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:28:39 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot of talent and promise, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. At the same time, Bowles acknowledged that the quarterback position is currently an open slate, with Smith and Matt Simms the only quarterbacks currently rostered.

Fantasy Tip: Smith remains nothing more than a backup option in fantasy football, though new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey could spark some life into the underachieving quarterback.

Jets | Geno Smith makes impression on owner

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 11:26:03 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith made a strong impression on the team's owner with his stellar Week 17 performance against the Miami Dolphins. "I think he's a young quarterback who in the last five games has gotten much, much better. ...I've got confidence in Geno. I really think he can be good."

Fantasy Tip: Dominating a meaningless Week 17 game won't do much for Smith's fantasy value heading into the 2015 season. A lot of change is coming in the Jets' coaching staff, which could further set Smith back in his development. He's nothing more than a weak QB2 for next season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's future is up in the air with the Jets likely cleaning house in the offseason.

Jets | Geno Smith has high opinion of his play

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 19:31:37 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said Tuesday, Dec. 9, that he believes he has shown flashes of being a "Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback" this season. "But what we're looking for is consistency. The best teams have consistent quarterback play and I realize that and that's truly what I want to show the fans and everyone outside the building," Smith said. Smith has played 27 career games, and just six have ended without him throwing an interception. Nearly half of his games have ended with a passer rating below 70.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has only thrown one touchdown in his last three games, which does not make him a good option for fantasy owners. Smith only costs $3,800 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options.

Jets | Geno Smith to remain starter

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 16:50:13 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Rex Ryan, despite his dismal and mundane performance Monday night against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has not been startable all season and remains that way, especially after going just 6-for-13 in Week 13.
