Jets | New York won't wait forever on QB

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:24:16 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) impasse with the New York Jets does have an expiration date, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the Jets will rely on QB Geno Smith to be their starter if Fitzpatrick's contract is not worked out by a certain time. Bowles didn't say when exactly that time would be, but he indicated that it wouldn't be preseason. Fitzpatrick would start if/when he does re-sign, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick would be the only Jets quarterback with any meaningful fantasy value if he does return. Smith is a career fantasy backup, while Fitzpatrick is in low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 territory.

Jets | Geno Smith practiced with top receivers

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 16:20:15 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has thrown to Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. and Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry this offseason. Landry said eight or nine players gathered twice a week for workouts in South Florida.

Fantasy Tip: The talent of the receivers does not necessarily result in an increase in the talent of the quarterback. Smith is an inconsistent quarterback, and he won't even start if/when Ryan Fitzpatrick is re-signed. You can continue to keep Smith off your fantasy blueprint.

Jets | Brandon Marshall praises Geno Smith

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 21:54:29 -0700

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said it seems like the game has slowed down for QB Geno Smith, and he added that Smith has been playing with poise during OTAs.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on how the Ryan Fitzpatrick situation plays out, Smith could be starting for the Jets in Week 1. However, there is nothing in Smith's history that suggests he can be more than a low-end fantasy backup.

Jets | New York comfortable with quarterbacks

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:08:11 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is currently slated to start at quarterback with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) still not re-signed. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, however, said the Jets are comfortable with whoever wins the starting job.

Fantasy Tip: This implies that rookie Christian Hackenberg may have a chance at the starting job, but it would behoove the Jets to bring back Fitzpatrick. If Fitzpatrick somehow isn't brought back, then Smith would be the better option, but he shouldn't be starting for any fantasy squads.

Jets | Geno Smith receiving first-team reps

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:38:28 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is receiving first-team repetitions ahead of QBs Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg during organized team activities. However, the coaching staff hasn't defined the specific positions on the depth chart for the quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will likely be the Jets' starter unless they re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Smith has talent but has been wildly inconsistent when he's started for Gang Green. If he enters as the starter in Week 1, he's firmly in the fantasy backup consideration.

Jets | New York could keep four quarterbacks

Tue, 03 May 2016 16:15:31 -0700

New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, and possibly free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could all be on New York's roster when the 2016 regular season commences. General manager Mike Maccagnan said if it's in the best interest of the team then they will keep four quarterbacks. "It's been done before," Maccagnan said. "To me, it's a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow and develop players."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets aren't investing as much as they should be, though, as Fitzpatrick is still on the free-agent market. Smith is in line to start right now, but he has proven to be too inconsistent to consider starting in tradition fantasy leagues. Fitzpatrick has the most value for the Jets and for fantasy purposes.

Jets | General manager excited for Geno Smith

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:31:38 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith could start for the Jets in 2016 if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not re-signed. That prospect has general manager Mike Maccagnan excited. "Right now, Geno has been a starter for us, and actually played quite well prior to getting hurt last year, and was doing a good job in the offseason," Maccagnan said. "So we're kind of excited to see what Geno can do, coming back. And we feel good about that."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets do still want to re-sign Fitzpatrick, and he's definitely a more reliable fantasy option than Smith. Even if Smith somehow does start, he shouldn't be starting on your fantasy teams.

Jets | Geno Smith No. 1 QB for now

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 07:34:46 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback when offseason workouts begin, but the team is still looking to re-sign free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will work with the first-team offense as long as the team does not re-sign Fitzpatrick and likely would lose that spot if Fitzpatrick returns. Smith could be the starting quarterback in 2016 if another quarterback is not added but would only be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Jets | Todd Bowles lauds Geno Smith

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 09:55:06 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith showed maturity in 2015, and head coach Todd Bowles expressed confidence in New York's contingency plans at quarterback if they can't re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. "We thought Geno matured last year," Bowles said. "It's something you couldn't see because he didn't play as much, but you saw it in practice and you saw it in his demeanor in off-the-field stuff. Geno is still our quarterback, he's still on our team."

Fantasy Tip: If Fitzpatrick doesn't come back, expect the Jets to bring in another quarterback to compete with Smith for the starting job. Smith has shown flashes of brilliance in the NFL, but he's been far too inconsistent for fantasy owners to draft him as anything more than a backup if he's starting in 2016.

Jets | No rush in Ryan Fitzpatrick talks

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 16:55:33 -0700

The New York Jets have no sense of urgency in contract talks to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson. Fitzpatrick could miss the entire offseason program because of his familiarity with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's offense. General manager Mike Maccagnan said QB Geno Smith is a "definite possibility" as a replacement if Fitzpatrick doesn't return.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets and Fitz are at a stalemate right now, so stay tuned. The Amish Rifle would have the highest fantasy value if he stayed in New York, where he set career highs last year, but even then he'd be a high-end fantasy backup, at best.
