Jets | Geno Smith says he deserves to start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:23:25 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith believes the Jets are his team to lead, but acknowledges the competition he'll need to face in order to win the starting job. "There's always other guys, and there's always going to be competition. I've always welcomed it, and I still do," Smith said. The Jets brought in QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason to compete with Smith and could bring in more competition via the draft.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has struggled during his two-year career with New York so far, though he did improve last season as far as protecting the football. Still, he's proven to be an unreliable quarterback for the Jets and for fantasy teams. He should be regarded as no more than a bye-week replacement if he is named starter.

Jets | Owner happy with Geno Smith

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:27:07 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is a good starting quarterback if he cuts down on his mistakes, and the team needs to add some weapons on offense to help Smith, according to owner Woody Johnson. "He's going to mature," Johnson said. "He's not going to be making rookie mistakes anymore and he's not going to be making sophomore mistakes anymore, hopefully. If he can carry over the way he finished last year, when he played against the Dolphins [in the final game], he played OK. So if he can keep that going, we're good. We're going to get him more targets."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets has been linked to Marcus Mariota leading up to the draft, but it appears like Smith is the favorite for the starting job. Smith will have to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the job during training camp. Smith likely would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is a starter.

Jets | Geno Smith not changing mechanics

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:02:42 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith flew to the west coast to work with throwing coach Tom House, but Smith said he didn't change his mechanics at all. "I didn't change anything. It's not a thing where I needed to change anything. It was basically, just go out there, work out and get better," Smith said.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will be battling Ryan Fitzpatrick during training camp for the starting quarterback job, and that's if the Jets don't take a QB in this year's draft. The offense has more potential with offseason acquisitions, but Smith is still a work in progress and isn't to be trusted in fantasy leagues.

Jets | Geno Smith has money at stake

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:50:18 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot at stake this offseason as far as money is concerned. About 32% of Smith's compensation this year is tied to offseason attendance. Smith must participate in around 80% of offseason workouts or he could miss out on approximately $276,328.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still isn't guaranteed the Jets' starting quarterback job, but he seems to be the frontrunner heading into offseason activities. Ryan Fitzpatrick will also compete to start. Neither are worth starting in fantasy lineups.

Jets | Geno Smith working with new WR

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:13:54 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he has been working with WR Brandon Marshall in order to start building chemistry with him. Smith has also worked with throwing coach Tom House in California this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is probably the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job at this point, but he is expected to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick in training camp and could also compete with a draft pick. Smith played well near the end of the season but probably would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job. Marshall probably will be an option in the middle rounds of drafts since he is still a solid receiver.

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.
