Jets | Rex Ryan backs Geno Smith

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:20:47 -0700

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan publicly remained supportive of QB Geno Smith Monday, Sept. 29. He said he talked to the quarterback about his incident with yelling a profanity at a fan. "Unfortunately, I made the same mistake," Ryan said. "Obviously, it's something I regretted when I did it, and I know Geno feels the same way." Ryan said he is sticking with Smith, who has thrown at least one interception in 16 of his 20 career starts, despite the fact fans are clamoring for backup QB Michael Vick to get a chance.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in a fantasy league which uses two starting quarterbacks, it might not be a terrible idea to stash Vick. Smith has not helped himself with a slow start and plenty of mistakes, and it might only be a matter of time before Smith loses support.

Jets | Geno Smith to remain starter

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 10:35:13 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will remain the team's starting quarterback despite another shaky performance in a Week 4 loss to the Detroit Lions. "I'm confident in Geno. If Geno's healthy, then Geno Smith will start," head coach Rex Ryan said after the game. "I'm not gonna replace him. I feel good about Geno, and again, I think he's gonna get it turned. He's a tough, resilient young man, and I think we're gonna win."

Fantasy Tip: Smith is skating on thin ice right now. Another bad performance could lead to a benching. Smith and the Jets face the San Diego Chargers on the road in Week 5. It's not a matchup worth trusting Smith, even if he is cheap at FantasyScore.

Jets | Fans unhappy with Geno Smith

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:36:30 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Rex Ryan has said Smith is the starter, but for fantasy purposes he is not someone you will want to rely upon unless you are absolutely desperate due to bye weeks or injuries.

Jets | Jets to simplify offense?

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 16:25:36 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith won't be benched after an inconsistent start to the season, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. However, Mornhinweg admitted that the team may need to scale back the offensive game plan because he "put too much on (Smith's) plate." "We need to develop Geno. Listen, Geno is going to be just fine. ... To be great, in many cases, you have to go through some failures -- and sometimes it's on a Monday night," Mornhinweg said. Smith already has five turnovers in three games, and he had two costly turnovers in the team's Week 3 loss. Mornhinweg said he needs to put Smith in better positions, especially in the red zone. The Jets went away from the run in the red zone Monday night and relied too much on Smith's arm.

Fantasy Tip: The good news for Smith owners is that his leash is much longer. Michael Vick is no threat to take his job, at least not anytime soon. However, a simplified offense in New York may mean more reliance on the ground game, which would hurt Smith's fantasy value. Against the Detroit Lions in Week 4, Smith may be forced to throw more often than desired.

Jets | Coach confident in Geno Smith

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 12:15:20 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: Smith has struggled at times this season but appears to have a strong grip on the starting job. Smith costs $5,300 on FantasyScore this week, but owners should consider spending some extra money to get a better quarterback.

Jets | Jets standing behind Geno Smith

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:56:27 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Jets QB Geno Smith remains the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "Everybody is behind Geno. He's our quarterback and our football team believes in him," Ryan said.

Fantasy Tip: A disastrous performance in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions could quickly change the team's tune. Smith will cost you $5,300 at FantasyScore this week, but there are better options to be had at the position.

Jets | Michael Vick to be more involved?

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 11:10:25 -0700

New York Jets QB Michael Vick could be more involved in the offense moving forward, as QB Geno Smith has five turnovers in the first three games. "I'm never going to say no because I learned that from (the media)," head coach Rex Ryan said. However, Ryan still supports Smith and thinks he'll be fine. Smith looks more comfortable in offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's system, but the results haven't followed.

Fantasy Tip: Smith would probably need a few more poor performances for a change to be made. Smith's up and down performances continue to make him a shaky weekly fantasy play.

Jets | Rex Ryan defends Geno Smith

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 09:44:13 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith didn't take a step back in his development in the Week 3 loss to the Chicago Bears Monday, Sept. 22, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "Guys, this ain't the same quarterback as he was at the beginning of last year, I don't care what people say," Ryan said. "Did he make a mistake? Absolutely. Their quarterback made a mistake but the difference was, they caught the ball and we didn't. ... I feel good about this football team and I feel good about Geno Smith."

Fantasy Tip: Smith was 26-for-43 for 316 yards, a touchdown and two costly interceptions - one for a touchdown and one in the red zone. Smith has talent, but he's been wildly inconsistent. He'll be a dice roll again in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions for $5,300 (10.6% of cap) at FantasyScore.

Jets | Geno Smith tabbed as starter

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 21:30:15 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the team's week-to-week starting quarterback for the regular season, head coach Rex Ryan said Friday, Aug. 22, after the preseason game against the New York Giants. Smith completed nine of his 14 pass attempts for 137 yards and a touchdown, and he also ran three times for 17 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is still no better than a Top 25 fantasy quarterback in most formats. If your league requires two starting QBs, then you definitely want Smith on your roster. But at this point he is nothing more than a bye-week replacement.
