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.

Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith may be in the mist of his great stretch of his career.
Insight: Too bad the season is now over. Smith completed 20-of-25 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns against the Dolphins. Perhaps that will save his job or Rex Ryan, but probably not. Smith still 13 touchdowns versus 13 interceptions in 14 starts this season.
12/21/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was decent during Sunday's loss against the Patriots.
Insight: He went 17-of-27 for 210 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. It will be interesting to see if Smith is back in New York next season.
12/15/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith led the team to a 16-11 victory.
Insight: Smith passed for 179 yards and a touchdown to John Conner. It was a win, but it certainly wasn't fantasy worthy.
12/7/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was better in Week 14.
Insight: he went 18-of-29 for 254 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Smith will continue to play for his job.

Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith started against Miami, but the game plan took away his chance to be of any value to fantasy owners.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan's offensive strategy was to pound the ball on the ground and Smith threw just 13 passes, completing seven of them for 65 yards. Fantasy owners shouldn't start or even own Smith at this time.
11/26/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith will start Monday night against Miami.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan wanted to start Michael Vick, but he was overruled. Smith is no more than a QB2.
11/24/2014 9:59:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith came in during the second half and through for 89 yards.
Insight: He was 10-of-12, and should remain the starter for the rest of the season.
10/26/2014 1:41:00 PM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was benched in the first quarter, in favor of Michael Vick.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan had no choice as Smith was 2-for-8 for five yards and a dreadful three interceptions. With the Jets playoff hopes all but lost, Smith could still find himself under center, as the season progresses.
10/17/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was mistake-free while throwing for 226 yards and a touchdown in a tough loss to New England.
Insight: Smith played well, but these totals are the upper limit for fantasy owners which is why his value in minimal.

Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was a little better in Week 6, throwing for 190 yards on 23-for-43 attempts, two touchdowns and one interception.
Insight: That's not saying much considering Rex Ryan pulled Smith from his Week 5 start, and Smith likely only received another chance because Michael Vick admited he wasn't prepared. Smith also gained 11 rushing yards. Hopefully, owners don't have him in leagues.
Cold10/6/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was pulled from the game after a horrible first half in which he was 4-of-12 for 27 yards and an interception.
Insight: Backup Michael Vick wasn't any better, going 8-of-19 for 47 yards as the Jets were shutout 31-0. He also missed a team meeting Saturday. Things are not looking very good for the Jets offense.
8/23/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: The Jets named Geno Smith the starting quarterback following the team's third preseason game Friday night against the Giants.
Insight: Smith has gone 23-of-33 (.697) for 268 yards, a touchdown and an interception this preseason and he was 9-of-14 for 137 yards and a touchdown Friday night. Smith's grasp on the starting job was never in jeopardy, especially because Michael Vick showed up to camp with a backup's mindset. Smith isn't a reliable fantasy option but his development is important to the fantasy value of Eric Decker.

Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith took all 16 of the first-team reps Thursday, according to the New York Post.
Insight: Michael Vick was relegated to the second team. Smith had been getting about 75 percent of the first-team snaps previously and is the favorite to start in Week 1. Smith was very inconsistent as a rookie, racking up 17 or more fantasy points six times but seven fantasy points or less seven times.

Insight: It certainly can't be off his work Sunday against Miami. That performace was one of the worst we've seen this season (4-of-10, 29 yards, 1 INT) and got him replaced by Matt Simms at halftime. New York's struggling second round pick is making Jets fans miss Mark Sanchez.

Insight: If the Jets had a capable backup, he'd be starting already. Smith has been a disaster over the last six weeks, producing just one touchdown pass and ten interceptions in that span. Despite Smith's poor play, the Jets still have a decent shot at making the playoffs. They're tied with Tennessee for the final wild card spot in the AFC.

Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith was benched Sunday against the Bills after throwing three interceptions.
Insight: Smith completed 8-of-23 for 103 yards and also fumbled twice, losing one. He was replaced by Matt Simms, son of Phil and brother of Chris.

Description: The Geno Smith Era has officially begun in East Rutherford. The Jets have announced that he'll be the team's Week 1 starting quarterback.
Insight: He'll face the Buccaneers in the season opener. Tampa's defense struggled mightily last season but with newcomers Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson anchoring the secondary, this could be a difficult matchup for the former West Virginia Mountaineer. Smith finished the preseason with a 54.6 QB rating on 37 pass attempts.

Description: Jets rookie Geno Smith will have one last chance to prove himself Saturday against the Giants.
Insight: Smith missed last week's game against Jacksonville with a sprained ankle but he'll be the Jets' starter on Saturday. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News thinks Smith could win the starting job over Mark Sanchez if he plays well and doesn't commit any turnovers.

Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan said quarterback Geno Smith was "brutal" in Wednesday's practice. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: "That was Geno's worst day, obviously," Ryan said to reporters after practice. "We've seen guys have bad days, but this was a really bad day." Smith threw three interceptions on Wednesday, which Ryan remarked as "way too many." Ryan hinted that Smith's sprained ankle could be what's causing him to struggle. It's looking more and more like Mark Sanchez will win the Jets' starting quarterback job.
