2016 Outlook: Do Not DraftLast updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs
Update (7/28): Due to the re-signing of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Smith has no Fantasy value.
Smith has struggled to win games (11-18) in his first two seasons with the Jets. He showed growth in his completion rate (59.7) while cutting down on his Ints (13) in 2014, but he lost his starting opportunity in 2015. Smith has three 300 yard passing games in his career with only one game with more than two passing TDs in 29 starts. His only appearance in 2015 led to 265 passing yards and two TDs while completing 64.3 percent of his pass attempts. The Jets passing game made a nice step forward in 2015 with Ryan Fitzpatrick behind center and Brandon Marshall added to the offense. Maybe a year of holding a clipboard will lead to better decision making by Geno. In his career, Smith has 35 Ints and 27 TDs in 31 career games. He has talent at WR plus an upside pass catching back. If Jace Amaro makes a step forward in 2016, he could have four strong options in the passing game. Based on experience, he will have the inside track for the starting job. If he can't deliver TDs and wins while minimizing the damage in TDs, Geno will be passed on the depth chart. There is always the chance that Ryan Fitzpatrick is added to the roster once he figures his starting options are extremely limited. New York has enough talent in the passing game to take a flier on Smith in the Fantasy market. I'd think of him more of a QB3 as he does have job loss risk. This offense has a very good chance of delivering 4000+ yards and close to 30 TDs if the offensive line can protect the QB.
