Jets | Geno Smith receives some work

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:40:17 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) took some snaps from under center during practice Monday, Aug. 31, but it was not at full speed.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is expected to miss a few weeks of the regular season and may not regain his starting job if QB Ryan Fitzpatrick plays well. Owners probably should avoid Smith in drafts.

Jets | Geno Smith present at practice

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 10:58:00 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) attended practice Monday, Aug. 24, but did not participate in drills. He was wearing a no-contact jersey during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is expected to miss several weeks because of his jaw injury, so owners should not select him in drafts. Ryan Fitzpatrick will start while he is out, but he is not a great fantasy option either.

Jets | Geno Smith nearly replaced by Cousins

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 09:39:54 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith was nearly replaced by Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins, whom the team would have traded for if they hired Dan Quinn as head coach. Quinn wanted to bring Kyle Shanahan aboard as offensive coordinator, and the tandem sought to acquire Cousins to be the starting quarterback for the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Fitzpatrick has a chance to keep the starting job once Smith returns from his broken jaw. Both signal callers are QB2's that should be left on waivers except in deeper leagues.

Jets | Geno Smith won't be on sideline

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:43:09 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) will not be on the sideline Friday, Aug. 21, versus the Atlanta Falcons. Head coach Todd Bowles said inactive injured players will not be permitted on the sideline while the game is ongoing.

Fantasy Tip: It's not that Smith is being shunned or put in the doghouse. Bowles just doesn't want anyone injured being at risk on the sideline. It's a precautionary policy he has. Smith is expected to miss at least the first four games of the season. Stay away from him in fantasy drafts.

Jets | Geno Smith could miss first four games

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 12:51:42 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith's (jaw) broken jaw could force him to miss the first four games of the season, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan. The Jets have a Week 5 bye, so he could return for Week 6. Maccagnan also said the Jets could add another quarterback in light of Smith's injury.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's recovery period was expected to be six to 10 weeks, so a return in Week 6 would seem to be a good thing. Of course, Ryan Fitzpatrick could still start upon Smith's return if he's playing well enough. Still, none of New York's quarterbacks are worth starting on fantasy teams.

Jets | Team doesn't want Geno Smith working out

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 13:35:08 -0700

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he was not happy that QB Geno Smith (jaw) began working out on his own two days after undergoing surgery to fix a broken jaw. He said the matter has been dealt with internally and Smith will not face disciplinary action.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is expected to be sidelined six to 10 weeks, although there is no guarantee that he will regain his starting role if Ryan Fitzpatrick is playing well. The Jets' quarterback situation is one for fantasy owners to avoid regardless of who is lined up behind center.

Jets | Geno Smith has surgery

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:52:10 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) underwent surgery on his broken jaw Thursday, Aug. 13. Plates and screws were inserted, but his jaw did not need to be wired shut.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is expected to return in six to 10 weeks, but he may not start upon his return if Ryan Fitzpatrick is playing well. No matter what, New York's quarterback situation is one to stay away from.

Jets | Geno Smith elects for surgery

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:37:36 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) has elected for surgery to repair his broken jaw after a second opinion. Smith is expected to miss six to 10 weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is slated to miss at least the first two games, but he was a shaky QB2 to begin with. Look for him as a one-week play in great matchups if he regains the starting job. Ryan Fitzpatrick is a low-end QB2 in his stead.

Jets | Geno Smith may not regain job

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 10:46:17 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) may not regain his starting job when he returns if the team is playing well without him, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is expected to miss at least the first few weeks of the season because of his broken jaw, but he could stay on the sidelines if the team is winning games. Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to take over the starting job, but he should only be considered as No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Jets | Geno Smith punched over $600

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 05:36:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Geno Smith (jaw) was punched in the face by former Jets LB IK Enemkpali because of a dispute over money. Enemkpali accepted a $600 plane ticket from Enemkpali to appear at his football camp in Pflugerville, Texas, on July 11, according to sources. Smith didn't show up to the camp, which took place days after someone close to Smith was killed in a motorcycle accident in Miami. After Smith did not attend, Enemkpali demanded that Smith refund him the $600 he allegedly used to purchase the plane ticket. Smith told Enemkpali he would reimburse him the money, but he had not as of Tuesday, Aug. 11. Enkempali confronted Smith about the money, and the confrontation ended in a punch and a broken jaw. A source familiar with the situation told ESPN's Josina Anderson that at the start of camp, Smith approached Enemkpali, sensing tension between the two. The source said Smith confronted Enemkpali, tried to diffuse the situation and offered to pay Enemkpali the $600.

Fantasy Tip: Smith probably shouldn't be drafted in single-year leagues because of his lengthy absence. Ryan Fitzpatrick is a low-end QB2 that you can use in two-quarterback leagues.
