New York Jets QB Geno Smith took 19 first-team snaps in the team's practice Tuesday, Aug. 12. QB Michael Vick took two first-team snaps.
Fantasy Tip: This is not a surprise as Smith continues to look like he has a solid lead in the quarterback competition.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick could be used this year in special packages as a change-of-pace quarterback, head coach Rex Ryan hinted. The team ran an entire period of Wildcat plays in practice Saturday, Aug. 9. Ryan has called Vick a "special talent" and has long been a fan of the Wildcat.
Fantasy Tip: Vick still has the speed and burst to be successful on the ground, but his extensive injury history doesn't bode well for him if he's used often to scramble. The Jets are probably mindful of this, as well, so we wouldn't expect them to plan for Vick to run often.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick went 3-for-6 for 17 yards and looked comfortable in the offense in the team's first preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Aug. 7. He led the first-team offense on an 80-yard scoring drive in his only work with the starters.
Fantasy Tip: Vick still has some bounce to his step, and it's a positive that he looked that comfortable in Marty Mornhinweg's system right off the bat. Still, he's the backup to Geno Smith unless Smith tanks in the remainder of the preseason.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick did not take any first-team snaps in practice Thursday, July 31.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith may be on a shorter leash this year with QB Michael Vick as his backup. Head coach Rex Ryan said the team's quarterback situation is ideal in that there is a veteran backup waiting who knows the system if Smith doesn't succeed.
Fantasy Tip: Smith undoubtedly had a tumultuous rookie season in 2013. He's not a reliable fantasy quarterback by any means at this point in his career. Smith and Vick should both be drafted as a backup.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith received 16 snaps with the first-team offense during practice Saturday, July 26, while QB Michael Vick received three snaps. Smith has received 42 starter reps in three practices while Vick has received 12 snaps.

Neither QB Geno Smith nor QB Michael Vick has an advantage in the competition for the starting quarterback job, according to general manager John Idzik.
Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:32:24 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith logged three-quarters of the first-team practice reps for the second straight day on Friday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: He's holding off Michael Vick but still will have to show marked improvement as we inch closer to fantasy drafts. For those willing to throw a late stab on him, they could be rewarded with stronger week-to-week value, or simply will move on with little consequence.
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 09:23:37 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith is receiving most of the first-team snaps in practice Thursday, July 24. Smith took 13 first-team snaps, and QB Michael Vick took four first-team snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Smith wins this job, he is not a draft worthy option at this point. Consider him a QB3 at best.

New York Jets WR David Nelson said his teammates believe this is QB Geno Smith's team and that QB Michael Vick is seen as the backup. "For all of us, it's Geno's team," Nelson said. "And from what we've been told and what we've been working toward, it's Geno's team, and Mike's coming in to kind of (fill) a supporting role. If anything happens to Geno, we have a proven starter and a proven winner backing him up. That's the direction we're moving."
