Fantasy NFL
Quarterback Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Geno Smith, QB, NYJ5/20/2015 4:09:00 PM
Description: Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said there will be no quarterback competition as Geno Smith will "probably" be the Week 1 starter according to ESPN New York.
Insight: This is a big surprise considering how poorly Smith has played at times during his career. He did show flashes of great quarterback play, including a 20-for-25, 358 yards and three touchdown day in the season finale as the Jets knocked off the Dolphins and prevented Miami from staying alive for the playoffs. Smith will have to solve his turnover issue, however, to become fantasy relevant. He had 16 turnovers in 14 games in 2014.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP5/11/2015 5:46:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been suspended four games for his role in DeflateGate.
Insight: New England has also lost their 2016 first-round pick and 2017 fourth-rounder, along with being handed a $1 million fine. Brady will likely appeal the suspension, which could potentially be reduced to two or three games. No matter what, Jimmy Garoppolo will likely start Week 1 against the Steelers.
