2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

In his rookie season, Geno Smith showed why he slipped out of the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Much like his day at West Virgina, Smith was wildly inconsistent and was a turnover machine. Smith threw just 12 touchdowns to go along with 21 interceptions and seven fumbles. These numbers resulted in a 35.9 QBR. While Michael Vick is clearly the superior quarterback, Smith is expected to be the Jets' starter. He has been taking 75-percent of the snaps with the starting unit this offseason. His passing numbers are miserable; however, Smith is a decent runner. He carried the ball 72 times for six TDs and 366 yards. He lacks elite speed, yet defenses have to respect his ability to take off out of the pocket. Smith did have a few big fantasy weeks against Buffalo, Atlanta and a tough Cleveland defense. He also went from October 20th to December 8th without throwing a single touchdown pass and that just can't happen again if he wants to keep his job. With awful play like this, Smith can't be trusted to put up respectable numbers. Even with new weapons like free agent WR Eric Decker and rookie TE Jace Amaro, Smith is at best a desperation fill-in; and if he falters, don't be surprised if the Jets call upon Vick. Rex Ryan wants to win now and he most likely won't hesitate to move on from Smith if he has another bad season.

May-28-15 Jets WR Brandon Marshall says 'the sky is the limit' for QB Geno Smith

Geno Smith's roommate and projected WR1 Brandon Marshall says he's been "just blown away" by the young quarterback. He believes that "the sky is the limit" for Smith. However, the veteran wideout did preface his comments. "This is a first-year offense," Marshall said. "If you guys are expecting me to be a [1,500]-yard receiver, that's high expectations. If you're expecting Geno Smith to go out there and crush it, I don't know how possible that is. It's a first-year offense with new guys, new faces. We're behind the eight ball. We have to put in extra work to catch up to those guys that have been together five, six, seven years."

Fantasy Analysis:

Not overly inspiring comments about Marshall's fantasy value for this season. It's also not overly concerning. He will be the top target in New York. His stock definitely takes a hit but not a crushing blow. When it comes to Smith, Marshall may say "the sky is the limit", nevertheless, in reality, the limit's the sky. He's a QB3 who has a high probability of being benched at some point during the season.
