New York Jets QB Matt Simms has shown a lot improvement and is throwing more consistent passes, according to quarterbacks coach David Lee. "Matt Simms has improved as much as any guy I think I can ever remember coaching," Lee said. "Early on, he threw so hard, our backs couldn't catch it. There was no touch. He developed some touch, and developed more touch. Right now, he is accurate." Simms is expected to receive significant playing time in the final preseason game, but it is not known if the team will keep three quarterbacks on the final roster.

We're going to compete on a daily basis, all of us, Matt Simms, Taj Boyd, every guy on this team is competing. It's a good sign for this team because it makes us get better day to day."

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 09:36:15 -0800
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is not naming a starting quarterback between QBs Geno Smith and Matt Simms for Week 14. "It's safe to say that we'll put the guys in who we think give us the best chance to be successful," Ryan said. "That's the way it is and will be moving forward." Smith had just 29 first-half passing yards and an interception in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins before being benched in favor of Simms. Simms threw for 50 yards and an interception in the second half.
Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to stay as far away from this situation as possible.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan benched QB Geno Smith after the first half of the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan would not answer when asked if QB Matt Simms would get first-team reps in practice this week.
Fantasy Tip: QB Geno Smith has been tabbed as the Week 13 starter, but he has been very shaky the past two games. Even if Simms were to start, his fantasy appeal is negligible.
Mon, 18 Nov 2013 13:59:00 -0800

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 13:41:48 -0800
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said the team will stick with QB Geno Smith as the starter in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. "Without question, Geno's going to start this game," Ryan said. However, Ryan said he could give QB Matt Simms more first-team repetitions in practice this week.
Fantasy Tip: Smith has been wildly inconsistent in his rookie season, which wasn't unexpected. Smith should be nothing more than a crapshoot as a backup QB for fantasy purposes.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith was lifted in the fourth quarter of the Week 8 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, as head coach Rex Ryan went with QB Matt Simms to finish up. The score of the game was rather lopsided, but Smith was also victimized for two interceptions for touchdowns.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he will stick with QB Geno Smith despite his rough start against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4. However, Ryan hinted that Smith needs to improve after turning the ball over a season-high four times against the Titans. Smith is tied for the league lead with 11 turnovers through four games. "You can't buy experience, but with that being said, we still have to do a much better job -- Geno, in particular -- of protecting the football at all costs," Ryan said, "You can't be nonchalant about it, you have to protect the ball." QBs Matt Simms and Brady Quinn are the other options, and Simms has zero NFL experience.
Fantasy Tip: We warned you that Smith would have his share of bumps and bruises in his rookie season. Turnovers are part of that equation. His upside is evident, though, and with the right matchups, he could be useful as a bye week filler at QB.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 14:57:36 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said that QB Matt Simms isn't a threat to steal QB Geno Smith's starting job. "Well, I think there are a lot of guys that like Simms, I don't think there's any doubt, but to say as our starting quarterback? I don't see that," Ryan said. "Again, I'm obviously saying that that couldn't happen, but we see Geno as our starting quarterback now, and that's how we see it. We like Matt -- or Phil, if you want." The Jets are happy with Smith's play, other than some miscues, and have acknowledged that he will go through his bumps and bruises as part of the learning experience.
Fantasy Tip: Smith will likely have a long leash, since the Jets see him as the future starter at QB in the long run. Starting him for fantasy purposes would be foolish, though.

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 17:20:45 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith showed well during practice, displaying accuracy and zip on his passes. However, when it came to running gassers at the end of practice, one analyst said it looked like Smith "had done no conditioning. It was actually embarrassing to see how far behind (QB Mark Sanchez) and (QB Matt Simms) and everybody else that's there."
Fantasy Tip: Despite the struggle in gassers, Smith has reportedly received high marks for picking up the offense and his work during drills. Smith's conditioning might be in question somewhat, but he is definitely trying hard to make the decision between himself and Mark Sanchez a difficult one for head coach Rex Ryan.
