New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback when offseason workouts begin, but the team is still looking to re-sign free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Fantasy Tip: Smith will work with the first-team offense as long as the team does not re-sign Fitzpatrick and likely would lose that spot if Fitzpatrick returns. Smith could be the starting quarterback in 2016 if another quarterback is not added but would only be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The drama increases, as the Jets selected Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the NFL Draft. With Bryce Petty selected in the draft last season, the Jets are stockpiling talent at the position. Fitzpatrick might not be returning to Gang Green, who also still have Geno Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Hackenberg has a lot of attributes you look for in an NFL starting quarterback, but he has some developing to do. He is worth scooping up late in dynasty leagues, but he may never have much fantasy relevance.

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Tip: The Jets were in need of a quarterback with the iffy Fitzpatrick situation. Fitzpatrick will start if he does return, but Hackenberg could be the future of the quarterback position. Stay away from him in fantasy this season, though.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are still in a stalemate with Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he could still re-sign this offseason, which would relegate Hackenberg to a backup role and allow him to learn at the NFL level. Hackenberg is a project at the quarterback position and can't be expected to have much fantasy value, even if he somehow finds himself starting in New York in his rookie season.

Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg has drawn the admiration of New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan. The Jets aren't likely to take Hackenberg with their first-round pick, but he could be an option for them in the second round.
Fantasy Tip: Opinions vary on Hackenberg, but it will probably take him at least a year to acclimate to the professional level. And even then, he may not be an NFL starter. His fantasy relevance is likely still a couple years away.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick and the Jets are clearly at odds, and Fitz could very well end up on another team if New York isn't willing to increase their offer. The grizzly, veteran quarterback played like a borderline QB1 last season. He could be in the same territory in 2016 depending on where he's quarterbacking.
