Jets | Vote of confidence for Geno Smith

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:42:57 -0700

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.

Jets | Brandon Marshall rejuvenated?

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:24:55 -0700

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.

Jets | Devin Smith struggling to adjust

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 19:48:38 -0700

New York Jets WR Devin Smith struggled to adjust to the multiple spots and routes he had to learn to run during offseason workouts, according to wide receivers coach Karl Dorrell.

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.

Jets | Jeremy Kerley to return punts?

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:00:39 -0700

New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley is the favorite to be the punt returner for the Jets this season, according to Rich Cimini of

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.

Jets | Chris Ivory leads backfield

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:35:43 -0700

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.

Jets | Stevan Ridley could start on PUP

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 10:41:15 -0700

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 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.

Jets | Eric Decker happy with new role

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 18:37:53 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker has embraced his move to the No. 2 receiver behind WR Brandon Marshall, saying the arrangement "will create more stress for the defense."

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.

Jets | DeVier Posey may be on bubble

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 11:49:11 -0700

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.

Jets | Stevan Ridley's camp status uncertain

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:39:24 -0700

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is not sure if he will be able to fully participate at the start of training camp. Ridley is he does not know if he will be 100% when camp starts and will not rush his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley's roster spot may be in jeopardy if he is not able to practice since the team has several other backs on the roster. Owners should monitor his recovery to see when he will be on the field. Ridley could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he has a solid role in the offense.

Jets | Geno Smith focused on improving

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 05:51:18 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is staying focused during organized team activities in the wake of comments made by OG Willie Colon that Smith "can't crash the green-and-white Porsche in Florham Park." Smith responded, "I think we all have to pull together and we all have to do our job," Smith said before a sharp practice on the second day of minicamp. "That's the key thing. What (Colon) said was that we need to be on top our game. I need to be on top of my game . . . and I believe that that's true. What he said in that regard wasn't wrong," said Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will have the first opportunity to win the Jets' starting job at quarterback, but he'll only be a late-round flier in two-quarterback leagues, even if does. Smith has thrown 34 interceptions and fumbled eight times, compared to just 25 passing touchdowns and seven rushing touchdowns in his first two seasons in the league.

Jets | Brandon Marshall picked Geno Smith

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 19:23:35 -0700

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall picked the Jets as his favored landing spot during free agency because of how impressed he was with QB Geno Smith. "I was really shocked at the intelligence, how smart he was," Marshall said. "I had known him as a player from afar. I didn't know his football IQ was so high. He had crazy passion."

Fantasy Tip: Marshall's days of being a WR1 are long gone, but he should still see enough targets to flirt with WR2 value.

Jets | Stevan Ridley confident

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 18:45:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) said his plan is to be a contributor by Week 1. "I can't predict the future, but for me I've got to be ready for Week 1, and that's the goal," Ridley said. "When I do hit the field, I'm making an impact."

Fantasy Tip: Ridley should end up being the No. 2 back behind Chris Ivory at some point, but he is a RB4 at best unless Ivory were to be sidelined with an injury.
