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.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick situation could linger

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 16:37:08 -0700

It looks as though the New York Jets may wait to view the practice repetitions of QB Geno Smith in training camp before there is more movement in talks with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The stalemate continues. It's probably in the best interests of both parties to have a reunion, but both sides are being stubborn. If Fitz doesn't return, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker will surely suffer. If the QB does return, he's a high-end fantasy backup, at best. Stay tuned.

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.
