Jets | Not committing to Geno Smith

The New York Jets have named QB Geno Smith their Week 1 starting quarterback, but they're not committing to him beyond the season opener. "We're having a competition between quarterbacks, and that competition isn't finished," owner Woody Johnson said. Smith is starting over the injured Mark Sanchez (shoulder), and he's expected to miss a few weeks. The team isn't considering placing Sanchez on the Injured Reserve or releasing him at this time. "We're very comfortable with Geno," head coach Rex Ryan said. "As an organization, we're confident Geno will help us get the job done."

Fantasy Tip: This situation is a mess, as it has been for a while. The team would prefer to keep Sanchez on the bench, even though running with Smith, a rookie, is a big risk. Consider it an even bigger risk to rely on Smith for fantasy purposes, for now.
