Jets | Geno Smith solidified as No. 2 QB

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 12:32:08 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is solidified as the club's No. 2 quarterback, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Although he's re-established himself as the backup quarterback for Gang Green, Smith can safely be ignored in all fantasy leagues. Even if starter Ryan Fitzpatrick goes down with an injury, Smith still isn't worth deploying until he exhibits some consistency, which he never did during his previous stint as the Jets' starter.

Jets | NYJ may keep four QBs on roster

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 23:51:14 -0700

The New York Jets are leaning toward keeping four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, with QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty, Geno Smith and Christian Hackenberg making the cut.

Fantasy Tip: Whether this is a wise idea remains to be seen, but the Jets would certainly have no shortage of signal-callers to pick from in case of injury. Fitzpatrick would be the No. 1, with Petty and Smith battling for the No. 2 spot. The winner of that backup job might be worth watching in deeper leagues in case Fitzpatrick falters or gets hurt.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick working with starters

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 12:34:41 -0700

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is receiving most of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, July 28. QB Geno Smith has also received a few snaps with the starters.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback for the Jets this season with Smith likely being the primary backup. Fitzpatrick is coming off a terrific 2015 season and will have Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker back this season. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or an elite No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Jets | Bad news for Geno Smith, Bryce Petty

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:59:52 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith and QB Bryce Petty were atop the depth chart, but now that the team has re-signed QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a one-year deal either Smith or Petty might be looking for a new team by the regular season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was a Top 25 fantasy option before the Fitzpatrick signing, now he should go mostly undrafted in all fantasy leagues. Petty needs to have a huge training camp and preseason, taking a necessary step forward.

Jets | Todd Bowles confident in Geno Smith

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 22:48:21 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains in line to start with the contract impasse between the organization and free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Head coach Todd Bowles said he is confident in Smith as the starter. "I think Geno can be a good starter, but he's got to prove it in training camp like everybody else," Bowles said. "It's not just about the quarterback position. You got to have a team around that position to play ball, but he's been in the system a year. He has a better grasp of it going into training camp and we'll see what he does."

Fantasy Tip: Smith has completed 57.9 percent of his 852 career pass attempts for 5,836 yards, 27 touchdowns and 36 interceptions. His first full season was a train wreck, but his 2014 wasn't all that bad. He also has that dual-threat dimension to make him a really, really poor man's Cam Newton when he is under center. If he hangs onto the starting job he is a Top 25 fantasy option at his position.
