Jets | NYJ may keep four QBs on roster

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 23:51:14 -0700

The New York Jets are leaning toward keeping four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, with QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty, Geno Smith and Christian Hackenberg making the cut.

Fantasy Tip: Whether this is a wise idea remains to be seen, but the Jets would certainly have no shortage of signal-callers to pick from in case of injury. Fitzpatrick would be the No. 1, with Petty and Smith battling for the No. 2 spot. The winner of that backup job might be worth watching in deeper leagues in case Fitzpatrick falters or gets hurt.

Jets | Geno Smith sharp in practice

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 18:25:13 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith worked with the second-team offense and connected on deep balls to WR Kyle S. Williams and WR Chandler Worthy during practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Ryan Fitzpatrick has Smith ticketed for a backup role and has erased his fantasy potential.

Jets | Geno Smith sticking around?

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 18:44:24 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is expected to remain with the team in 2016, general manager Mike Maccagnan said Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: While Smith may stick on the roster, he has zero fantasy value as long as Ryan Fitzpatrick is healthy.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick working with starters

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 12:34:41 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is receiving most of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, July 28. QB Geno Smith has also received a few snaps with the starters.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback for the Jets this season with Smith likely being the primary backup. Fitzpatrick is coming off a terrific 2015 season and will have Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker back this season. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or an elite No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Jets | Bad news for Geno Smith, Bryce Petty

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:59:52 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith and QB Bryce Petty were atop the depth chart, but now that the team has re-signed QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a one-year deal either Smith or Petty might be looking for a new team by the regular season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was a Top 25 fantasy option before the Fitzpatrick signing, now he should go mostly undrafted in all fantasy leagues. Petty needs to have a huge training camp and preseason, taking a necessary step forward.

Jets | Todd Bowles confident in Geno Smith

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 22:48:21 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains in line to start with the contract impasse between the organization and free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Head coach Todd Bowles said he is confident in Smith as the starter. "I think Geno can be a good starter, but he's got to prove it in training camp like everybody else," Bowles said. "It's not just about the quarterback position. You got to have a team around that position to play ball, but he's been in the system a year. He has a better grasp of it going into training camp and we'll see what he does."

Fantasy Tip: Smith has completed 57.9 percent of his 852 career pass attempts for 5,836 yards, 27 touchdowns and 36 interceptions. His first full season was a train wreck, but his 2014 wasn't all that bad. He also has that dual-threat dimension to make him a really, really poor man's Cam Newton when he is under center. If he hangs onto the starting job he is a Top 25 fantasy option at his position.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick situation could linger

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 16:37:08 -0700

It looks as though the New York Jets may wait to view the practice repetitions of QB Geno Smith in training camp before there is more movement in talks with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The stalemate continues. It's probably in the best interests of both parties to have a reunion, but both sides are being stubborn. If Fitz doesn't return, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker will surely suffer. If the QB does return, he's a high-end fantasy backup, at best. Stay tuned.

Jets | New York won't wait forever on QB

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:24:16 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) impasse with the New York Jets does have an expiration date, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the Jets will rely on QB Geno Smith to be their starter if Fitzpatrick's contract is not worked out by a certain time. Bowles didn't say when exactly that time would be, but he indicated that it wouldn't be preseason. Fitzpatrick would start if/when he does re-sign, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick would be the only Jets quarterback with any meaningful fantasy value if he does return. Smith is a career fantasy backup, while Fitzpatrick is in low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 territory.

Jets | Geno Smith practiced with top receivers

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 16:20:15 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has thrown to Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. and Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry this offseason. Landry said eight or nine players gathered twice a week for workouts in South Florida.

Fantasy Tip: The talent of the receivers does not necessarily result in an increase in the talent of the quarterback. Smith is an inconsistent quarterback, and he won't even start if/when Ryan Fitzpatrick is re-signed. You can continue to keep Smith off your fantasy blueprint.
