2013 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks
Update (10/20): Geno Smith is and will be the Jets' starting quarterback for the entire season. If he stops turning the ball over, he could be used as a bye week fill-in or as a replacement for an injured starter.
Update (8/26): Just when we thought the Jets' starting quarterback controversy was over, Rex Ryan adds a little twist. Late in Saturday's game against the Giants Ryan sends Mark Sanchez into the game for the final series or two. In the second series Sanchez takes a hit from Marvin Austin that sends him to the ground reeling in pain. We've been told that Mark is suffering from a bruised shoulder and is listed as day-to-day. Obviously if Rex Ryan thought Smith could win the game for the Jets he would have left him in, but instead he brought in Sanchez. This tells us Rex would rather see Mark under center and not Geno week 1. If the fact Geno isn't starting doesn't scare you away then watch how poorly he played Saturday and that should. It is obvious Smith is not ready for the NFL. Maybe late in the season when he takes over for Sanchez he'll be a viable backup for your last place fantasy team. Until then, don't waste a roster spot on Geno (or Sanchez for that matter).
Update (8/21): Smith missed the Jets' second preseason game due to an injured ankle. This weekend he'll get the start against the Giants and if all goes well, he could be New York's starting quarterback week one. As a starter, Smith will likely struggle, so there's little need to have him on your fantasy team this year.
It would appear as though Mark Sanchez's days are numbered in New York. The Jets used a second round pick to snatch up West Virgina's Geno Smith hoping he could become New York's new franchise quarterback. When camp begins this season it will be a two man race to see who will start week one.. Due to Mark Sanchez's poor performance last season, we'd bet Smith is the preferred choice; he'll need to prove he can lead the team before getting the opening day start. No matter which player starts for the Jets, there are too many questions surrounding the team for either to be fantasy worthy opening day.
