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.

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.

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.

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.

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall has been a positive influence since joining the Jets this offseason. Marshall has shown his athletic ability that has given him success in previous seasons and he has been a good teammate in the locker room as well. Additionally, Marshall has connections with new head coach Todd Bowles, who was part of the Dolphins' coaching staff when Marshall played in Miami.
Fantasy Tip: The pieces seem to be fitting perfectly for Marshall as he joins his fourth team. The quarterback situation is still iffy, however, so it will be interesting to see how content he stays if Geno Smith and/or Ryan Fitzpatrick can't get the ball rolling. Marshall may be past his days of being a WR1, but he should be selected as a WR2.

Fantasy Tip: New York isn't going to have a pass-happy offense any time soon, and with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker around, Smith will be lucky to be more than a deep threat as a rookie. He will likely deliver the occasional big play, but he won't provide enough production to warrant drafting in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Kerley is also expected to be the starting slot receiver, so there will be decent fantasy value in leagues that award return points. He's still no more than a WR4, however, as Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker will see the majority of targets and Geno Smith will likely be the starting quarterback.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is listed as the starting running back entering training camp, according to beat writer Rich Cimini's unofficial depth chart. RB Bilal Powell is the primary backup, and RB Zac Stacy is listed as the third running back. RB Stevan Ridley (knee) could figure in eventually, but he's expected to be limited at the start of camp.
Fantasy Tip: Ivory established himself in a muddy backfield that was expected to be led by Chris Johnson last year. Ivory has competition again this year, but he's a solid RB2 and takes a hit in PPR formats. Powell is a decent RB4 in PPR formats. It's hard to draft Stacy right now unless Powell and Ridley slip up.

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) may begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list as he continues to recover from knee surgery, according to Dom Cosentino of NJ.com. If Ridley is not ready for training camp, the odds of him being placed on the PUP to start the season increase.
Fantasy Tip: The Jets have a crowded backfield as it is, and Ridley is already losing ground on the competition. Chris Ivory will likely start, barring injury, and Ridley will also have Zac Stacy and Bilal Powell to fend off. Draft him as a RB4 in deeper leagues and a RB5 in normal leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Decker finished last season with 74 catches for 962 yards and five scores, and while Marshall will certainly eat into his targets, there is also a chance Marshall's presence will open up Decker for more big plays. Consider him a low-end WR3 or a strong WR4 heading into 2015.

New York Jets WR DeVier Posey will compete for the No. 5 wide receiver job during training camp but could be released if he does not win the job. Posey could make the roster if the team decides to keep six receivers. Posey does not return kicks or punts, which hurts his value.

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld (knee) was waived/injured Monday, June 15, after suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during organized team activities (OTAs). The team signed TE Steve Maneri to take his roster spot.
