Geno Smith, QB, Jets
2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Geno has struggled to win games in his two seasons with the Jets (11-18). He improved his completion rate (59.7) and cut down on his interceptions last season (13). Smith has three 300-yard passing games in his career and only one game with more than two passing touchdowns in 29 starts. This season, he has a stud No. 1 wideout in Brandon Marshall and a solid No. 2 option in Eric Decker. Devin Smith will give Geno a pure deep threat, and Jeremy Kerley will work as a possession receiver. When you add developing tight end Jace Amaro, you have the foundation of an above-average receiving corps. The only thing missing is opportunity. The Jets' new head coach is a defensive mind, and the strength of the team is defense. So, expect a ton of running plays this fall. I believe Geno still has upside as he enters his third season, but this could be his last chance to prove it with the Jets. If he gains some more yards with his legs, Smith may have value as a backup QB or a bye-week cover in fantasy.
