Jets | Geno Smith to see competition

Thu, 28 May 2015 05:29:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Geno Smith is currently working as the starter, according to Jets head coach Todd Bowles Wednesday, May 27. However, Smith will face competition during the summer. The job is Smith's to lose, per Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: This is slightly different than the comments made by Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey last week, but it makes perfectly good sense. Smith will have to flop before handing over the keys to QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick or Bryce Petty. Smith has enough talent around him to warrant occasional fantasy spot starts when the matchup is right.

Jets | Geno Smith is starter

Wed, 20 May 2015 11:55:28 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is the starting quarterback and will not see competition in training camp, according to offensive coordinator Chan Gailey.

Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat of a surprise after the Jets signed Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason, and taking into account the tumultuous start of Smith's career. Smith has all the tools he needs to be successful in his third year, particularly at wide receiver with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. He's still not starter worthy in fantasy leagues, however.

Jets | Brandon Marshall working with QB

Sun, 10 May 2015 07:18:46 -0700

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said has been living with QB Geno Smith for time being, and the two players have been working on learning the offense. Marshall is expected to stay with Smith until late June when he finds his own place to live.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall and Smith should both benefit from working together now when the season begins. Marshall did see his stats drop this past season but he could still be a middle-round pick for owners. Smith finished off the 2014 strong but probably will not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Jets | Geno Smith says he deserves to start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:23:25 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith believes the Jets are his team to lead, but acknowledges the competition he'll need to face in order to win the starting job. "There's always other guys, and there's always going to be competition. I've always welcomed it, and I still do," Smith said. The Jets brought in QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason to compete with Smith and could bring in more competition via the draft.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has struggled during his two-year career with New York so far, though he did improve last season as far as protecting the football. Still, he's proven to be an unreliable quarterback for the Jets and for fantasy teams. He should be regarded as no more than a bye-week replacement if he is named starter.

Jets | Owner happy with Geno Smith

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:27:07 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is a good starting quarterback if he cuts down on his mistakes, and the team needs to add some weapons on offense to help Smith, according to owner Woody Johnson. "He's going to mature," Johnson said. "He's not going to be making rookie mistakes anymore and he's not going to be making sophomore mistakes anymore, hopefully. If he can carry over the way he finished last year, when he played against the Dolphins [in the final game], he played OK. So if he can keep that going, we're good. We're going to get him more targets."

Fantasy Tip: The Jets has been linked to Marcus Mariota leading up to the draft, but it appears like Smith is the favorite for the starting job. Smith will have to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the job during training camp. Smith likely would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is a starter.

Jets | Geno Smith not changing mechanics

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:02:42 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith flew to the west coast to work with throwing coach Tom House, but Smith said he didn't change his mechanics at all. "I didn't change anything. It's not a thing where I needed to change anything. It was basically, just go out there, work out and get better," Smith said.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will be battling Ryan Fitzpatrick during training camp for the starting quarterback job, and that's if the Jets don't take a QB in this year's draft. The offense has more potential with offseason acquisitions, but Smith is still a work in progress and isn't to be trusted in fantasy leagues.

Jets | Geno Smith has money at stake

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:50:18 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot at stake this offseason as far as money is concerned. About 32% of Smith's compensation this year is tied to offseason attendance. Smith must participate in around 80% of offseason workouts or he could miss out on approximately $276,328.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still isn't guaranteed the Jets' starting quarterback job, but he seems to be the frontrunner heading into offseason activities. Ryan Fitzpatrick will also compete to start. Neither are worth starting in fantasy lineups.

Jets | Geno Smith working with new WR

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:13:54 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he has been working with WR Brandon Marshall in order to start building chemistry with him. Smith has also worked with throwing coach Tom House in California this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is probably the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job at this point, but he is expected to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick in training camp and could also compete with a draft pick. Smith played well near the end of the season but probably would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job. Marshall probably will be an option in the middle rounds of drafts since he is still a solid receiver.

Jets | Expected to add another QB

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:03:40 -0700

Jets | Geno Smith to enter camp as starter

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:19:13 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback ahead of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick entering training camp this summer, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. "You can't have equal first-team reps with a quarterback," Bowles said. "Geno will start out taking them, but that doesn't mean that Ryan can't take his spot. If Ryan's playing better and performing better…" Bowles continues to say that it's too early to judge Smith off his tape alone.

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback battle could be far from over in New York, especially if they draft a QB in the first round this year. If not, Smith and Fitzpatrick will battle it out this summer, and neither is likely worth drafting in standard fantasy football leagues.

Jets | NYJ comfortable with QBs

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 12:36:38 -0700

New York Jets QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are expected to compete for the starting job during training camp, and general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is comfortable with them as their top two quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will receive more work during offseason workouts since Fitzpatrick is recovering from a broken leg, but the two quarterbacks will compete for the starting job during training camp. Owners should consider whoever wins the job as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Jets | New York still committed to Geno Smith

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 10:59:32 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith may not have big competition for the starting quarterback job, because the team is not committed to selecting a quarterback with the sixth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Jets are committed to make Smith a successful starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a solid finish to the 2014 season with six touchdowns and two interceptions in the last four games. There is a chance that the Jets could add a quarterback during the offseason to compete with Smith, but Smith appears to be the leading candidate for the job. Smith should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy drafts next season.

Jets | Hope to turn Geno Smith into winner

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 20:16:55 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith might soon have company despite the fact general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is "committed" to trying to turn Smith into a winning quarterback. The team met with free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) Wednesday, Feb. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been mostly a disaster in his first two seasons, and he is certainly not a quarterback fantasy owners can pin their hopes to. Smith likely would need to take a giant leap forward to be the starter in Week 1 of the 2015 season.

Jets | QB situation still unknown in NY

Sat, 31 Jan 2015 10:00:04 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he still hasn't received a definitive answer from head coach Todd Bowles on the team's quarterback situation.

Fantasy Tip: Smith, Michael Vick and Matt Simms are the only quarterbacks currently on the roster. None of them, however, should be considered a starting fantasy quarterback at this point.

Jets | Geno Smith shows promise

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 14:28:39 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot of talent and promise, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. At the same time, Bowles acknowledged that the quarterback position is currently an open slate, with Smith and Matt Simms the only quarterbacks currently rostered.

Fantasy Tip: Smith remains nothing more than a backup option in fantasy football, though new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey could spark some life into the underachieving quarterback.

Jets | Geno Smith makes impression on owner

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 11:26:03 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith made a strong impression on the team's owner with his stellar Week 17 performance against the Miami Dolphins. "I think he's a young quarterback who in the last five games has gotten much, much better. ...I've got confidence in Geno. I really think he can be good."

Fantasy Tip: Dominating a meaningless Week 17 game won't do much for Smith's fantasy value heading into the 2015 season. A lot of change is coming in the Jets' coaching staff, which could further set Smith back in his development. He's nothing more than a weak QB2 for next season.

Jets | Geno Smith has career day

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:20:07 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith set a career high in passing yards (358) and tied his personal best of 3 touchdown passes in a single game with his performance in Week 17 versus the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's future is up in the air with the Jets likely cleaning house in the offseason.

Jets | Geno Smith has high opinion of his play

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 19:31:37 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said Tuesday, Dec. 9, that he believes he has shown flashes of being a "Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback" this season. "But what we're looking for is consistency. The best teams have consistent quarterback play and I realize that and that's truly what I want to show the fans and everyone outside the building," Smith said. Smith has played 27 career games, and just six have ended without him throwing an interception. Nearly half of his games have ended with a passer rating below 70.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has only thrown one touchdown in his last three games, which does not make him a good option for fantasy owners. Smith only costs $3,800 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options.

Jets | Geno Smith to remain starter

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 16:50:13 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Rex Ryan, despite his dismal and mundane performance Monday night against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has not been startable all season and remains that way, especially after going just 6-for-13 in Week 13.

Jets | Geno Smith avoided in game plan

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 20:43:45 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith attempted just 13 passes in the team's 16-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 1, finishing with 65 yards and an interception.

Fantasy Tip: Smith wasn't a viable fantasy option even after reclaiming the starting job, but the team's game plan Monday was an admission that the coaching staff has zero trust in the quarterback.

Jets | Geno Smith expected to keep job

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 11:58:34 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is expected to be the starting quarterback for the remaining games this season, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has not played well this season, but the team likely wants to see what Smith can do during the final games of the season. Smith likely will not be a good option to start on FantasyScore in any remaining week.

Jets | Geno Smith to start in Week 13

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:13:30 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will return to the starting quarterback role in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins, after QB Michael Vick saw only three starts. The feeling around the team is that general manager John Idzik insisted that head coach Rex Ryan start Smith over Vick. "The main factor is you want to give your guys a chance to win the game," Ryan said. "That's the No. 1 factor you look into. But that's what we did. We feel good. Geno last time out had a good game against Miami (in Week 17 last season)."

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,700) was just as bad as Vick earlier in the year before he was benched. For the most part, the Dolphins have held opposing quarterbacks in check this year, so it's best to avoid Smith at all costs at FantasyScore.

Jets | Coaches told Geno Smith where to throw

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 06:42:07 -0800

The New York Jets fear QB Geno Smith's growth was stunted by coaches because they dictated his reads. "Usually a quarterback is able to drop back, go through his reads then deliver the ball, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said. "I am told that Smith was informed of his reads, told, 'You need to throw the ball here on certain plays.' The most egregious example came on an interception on a pass intended for Percy Harvin that Stephon Gilmore, the Bills corner, picked off. Smith was told: 'This is where you need to throw the ball.' And obviously, for a quarterback who is now taking a breather last game and this game, may have hurt his development a little bit."

Jets | Geno Smith to serve as backup

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 13:50:51 -0800

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (shoulder) has improved enough that he'll serve as the backup to QB Michael Vick in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It'll be the first time that Smith will serve as a healthy backup in his short career. QB Matt Simms will remain on the active roster, but he'll be inactive against the Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has lost his starting job to Michael Vick and may not get another start for a while. Owners can consider dropping Smith in their leagues if they need the roster spot. Vick could be an option in deeper leagues but probably should not be an option on FantasyScore this week.

However, head coach Rex Ryan downplayed the severity of Smith's injury, and said the team hopes he can resume throwing by Wednesday, Oct. 29. QB Matt Simms will be ready just in case.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should be avoided everywhere after it was announced that Michael Vick ($4,400; 8.8% of cap) will start against the Chiefs. It's not a wise move to rely on Vick in his first start of the season.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has been pressured on 31 percent of his dropbacks in his career, which is the third highest among quarterbacks in the NFL during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has struggled this season, throwing six interceptions with his four touchdowns, but appears to still have a hold on his starting job. Smith costs $4,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider spending some more money on a better quarterback.
