Fantasy Tip: Quincy Enunwa and Kenbrell Thompkins would likely be the main beneficiaries if Smith misses any time. Neither is worth serious consideration for starting in fantasy lineups, though.

New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, and possibly free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could all be on New York's roster when the 2016 regular season commences. General manager Mike Maccagnan said if it's in the best interest of the team then they will keep four quarterbacks. "It's been done before," Maccagnan said. "To me, it's a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow and develop players."
Fantasy Tip: The Jets aren't investing as much as they should be, though, as Fitzpatrick is still on the free-agent market. Smith is in line to start right now, but he has proven to be too inconsistent to consider starting in tradition fantasy leagues. Fitzpatrick has the most value for the Jets and for fantasy purposes.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith could start for the Jets in 2016 if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not re-signed. That prospect has general manager Mike Maccagnan excited. "Right now, Geno has been a starter for us, and actually played quite well prior to getting hurt last year, and was doing a good job in the offseason," Maccagnan said. "So we're kind of excited to see what Geno can do, coming back. And we feel good about that."
Fantasy Tip: The Jets do still want to re-sign Fitzpatrick, and he's definitely a more reliable fantasy option than Smith. Even if Smith somehow does start, he shouldn't be starting on your fantasy teams.

Fantasy Tip: Hackenberg could have a chance to start if the Jets are not able to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Owners will need to keep an eye out on the Jets' quarterback situation leading up to training camp. Hackenberg would have receivers to work with if he starts but would only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most leagues. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker would also see their fantasy value drop if Hackenberg starts in 2016.

New York Jets CB Dee Milliner's fifth-year option was declined Monday, May 2, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said it was primarily based on Milliner's injury history. If Milliner plays well in 2016, though, Maccagnan said both sides can try to negotiate a contract following the season.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Dee Milliner did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Jets Monday, May 2. He will become a free agent after the 2016 season. Milliner missed 27 of 48 games due to surgeries on his Achilles' and wrist.
