Jets | Geno Smith won't have long leash

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:45:10 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith could be benched if he struggles early in the season, according to head coach Todd Bowles Tuesday, July 28. "If you feel that his position or any other position is hurting the team, as a head coach, it's up to you to do something about it," Bowles said about Smith. "It's not a year-long thing for anybody. You earn your keep by the week. You earn your keep by the day. … If somebody is not doing their job, it's up to me to rectify the situation," said Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could find himself in the starting role early on in 2015, but he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues, and he's only a late-round flier in two-QB leagues.

Jets | No pressure for Geno Smith?

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 18:04:11 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he doesn't feel any pressure heading into training camp. "I feel like we have a lot of room for improvement, but I love the way we're working and competing," Smith said. "To have guys around me that are so, so good, it takes all the pressure off of me."

Fantasy Tip: Smith has some legitimate targets to throw to this season, but he will have to make huge strides in his week-to-week consistency to become more than a low-end QB2 in seasonal leagues.

Jets | Geno Smith to work out with teammates

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:14:56 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he will be working out with most of the offensive skill players in Chicago during the two weeks before the start of training camp. Smith said he expects to be the only quarterback at the workouts but that the other quarterbacks are welcome to attend.

Fantasy Tip: Smith appears to be working hard on building chemistry with the receivers, tight ends and running backs this offseason. He did have a solid end to the season but should be seen as a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues this season.

Jets | No vacation for Geno Smith

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:00:48 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he is already focusing on preparing his body and mind for the regular season, and the next step is to work out with WR Brandon Marshall.

Fantasy Tip: With the addition of Marshall and Decker over the past two seasons, Smith will have some decent weapons to work with. However, consistency has eluded him so far in his career, making him a low-end QB2 prospect heading into 2015.

Jets | Vote of confidence for Geno Smith

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:42:57 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is improving year-by-year and has what it takes to be the quarterback of the future for the Jets, according to ESPN's Ron Jaworski. Jaworski said he has seen growth and improvement in Smith each year and that he just needs to perform on a consistent basis.

Fantasy Tip: Jaworski is right, Smith has been way too inconsistent in his two-year career, prompting the Jets to bring in Ryan Fitzpatrick and give him some competition. Smith is still expected to start Week 1, but he shouldn't be starting for your fantasy team(s) until he can shake his inconsistencies.

Jets | Geno Smith focused on improving

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 05:51:18 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is staying focused during organized team activities in the wake of comments made by OG Willie Colon that Smith "can't crash the green-and-white Porsche in Florham Park." Smith responded, "I think we all have to pull together and we all have to do our job," Smith said before a sharp practice on the second day of minicamp. "That's the key thing. What (Colon) said was that we need to be on top our game. I need to be on top of my game . . . and I believe that that's true. What he said in that regard wasn't wrong," said Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will have the first opportunity to win the Jets' starting job at quarterback, but he'll only be a late-round flier in two-quarterback leagues, even if does. Smith has thrown 34 interceptions and fumbled eight times, compared to just 25 passing touchdowns and seven rushing touchdowns in his first two seasons in the league.

Jets | Brandon Marshall picked Geno Smith

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 19:23:35 -0700

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall picked the Jets as his favored landing spot during free agency because of how impressed he was with QB Geno Smith. "I was really shocked at the intelligence, how smart he was," Marshall said. "I had known him as a player from afar. I didn't know his football IQ was so high. He had crazy passion."

Fantasy Tip: Marshall's days of being a WR1 are long gone, but he should still see enough targets to flirt with WR2 value.

Jets | NY quarterbacks not impressing HC

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 15:24:46 -0700

New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty didn't thrill head coach Todd Bowles with their play during minicamp. "It's been up and down," Bowles said of Smith's performances. "He makes good throws, he makes some bad throws. There has to be more consistency for the quarterbacks overall."

Fantasy Tip: Smith's inconsistency at minicamp is indicative of how he's played throughout his career so far. He is still the favorite to start at quarterback for the Jets, but Fitzpatrick could give him a run for his money in training camp and beyond. Whoever starts will be a backup fantasy quarterback.

Jets | Geno Smith rebounds at minicamp

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:36:30 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith had a better practice at minicamp Wednesday, June 10, than he did Tuesday, June 9, when he threw three interceptions. Smith saw the majority of first-team repetitions and did not throw any interceptions this time around.

Fantasy Tip: Smith may have improved after one day of practice, but he has still proven to be an unreliable fantasy quarterback. He should be a bye-week replacement at best in any format.

Jets | Geno Smith to work out with teammates

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:51:51 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is scheduled to work out with the running backs, wide receivers and tight ends for a week at some point before training camp. WR Brandon Marshall will be hosting the workouts in Chicago.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job and may not face any competition. Working with his teammates should help Smith's chemistry with the players, but he should probably be seen as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
