2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Geno Smith showed the typical rookie growing pains for most of his first season in the league. He finished the season barely eclipsing 3,000 yards and throwing for only 12 touchdowns against 21 interceptions. Buried in that abyss, however, was the young field general leading the way to impressive wins at Atlanta and at home against the rival Patriots, where he played very well. Perhaps more importantly for his 2014 prospects, Smith finished the year strong, leading the Jets to a 3-1 record in his last four games. During that four-week span, Smith threw for 790 yards with four touchdown passes and only two interceptions. He also rushed for 186 yards and three more touchdowns, making him a borderline QB1 candidate down the stretch. Reports from training camp have been mostly positive and his “battle” with Michael Vick for the starting job hasn't been a fair fight as the second-year player has received about 75 percent of the snaps with the first unit. The team added some weapons to help with Smith's development, most notably former Bronco Eric Decker. Smith was more of a pocket passer at West Virginia who was reluctant to leave the pocket despite his above-average athleticism. The team encouraged him to run more as the season progressed and Smith gained confidence tucking the ball away and taking off and it became a valuable weapon for the team. Smith finished the season with 366 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, despite not running much until the last quarter of the season. Smith should make some improvements as a passer and if he continues to run the ball, he isn't such a terrible option for your backup quarterback spot late in the draft.

Comment: Smith is penciled in as the Jets starter but smart money is on Vick getting a crack at the starting job at some point during the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Michael Vick announced as Week 9 starter
Geno Smith benched after throwing three first-quarter picks
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 27, 5:55 pm

New York Jets
The New York Jets made the only move they could reasonably make at quarterback for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. They are replacing the struggling Geno Smith with veteran Michael Vick. The Chiefs last season faced several quarterbacks making their first start after replacing a starter who was either injured or ineffective. This is the first such instance this season and it allows Vick to cross paths once again with Chiefs coach Andy Reid. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Vick was only marginally better than Smith in Week 8, failing to spot wide-open underneath receivers on several occasions while throwing an interception and committing two fumbles. In theory, Vick's ability to extend plays should give Percy Harvin and Eric Decker more time to get open, but Vick also appears to have regressed as a passer. The Jets' best chance to win in Week 9 is to ride Chris Ivory and the running game as long as possible.


Will NYJ turn to Michael Vick?
Geno Smith's mistakes may cost him starting job

New York Jets
Geno Smith had his second multi-turnover game of the season, punctuated by a nightmarish pick-six 32 seconds in that set the tone in a 27-19 loss to the Bears. Smith’s second interception came in the end zone on an ill-advised pass intended for David Nelson. It was just another blow on a night filled with self-inflicted wounds that dropped Ryan’s team to 1-2, and has coaches considering it may be time to plug in Michael Vick. (New York Daily News)

FFToday's Take: Ryan didn’t rule out the possibility that Vick, who played one snap against the Bears, could become more involved. From a fantasy perspective, it's not a terrible idea to grab Vick as a medium-upside stash in deeper formats and two-QB leagues.
