Huddle Up: This comes as no surprise. Smith was the guy to beat and Mike Vick never mounted a serious challenge. Smith has some more weapons to work with this season. If Geno improves on his accuracy and cuts down on turnovers, he could work himself into the QB2 discussion.

Huddle Up: While this is what the Jets were hoping for, fantasy owners were likely hoping for Michael Vick to force his way into the mix. It's not necessarily bad news for Eric Decker, but having seen what Vick can do in this offense there's a little less optimism for the Jets' overall fantasy prospects right now.

Huddle Up: Smith and Michael Vick essentially matched each other stat for stat in the preseason opener, and that, of course, favors the incumbent for now. It's the Big Apple, however, and all it's going to take is one bad outing or some ill-timed turnovers for Smith, and the pro-Vick clamor will intensify in a N.Y. minute.

Huddle Up: This was expected to be the case all along. Smith entered camp as the starter and Mike Vick the backup. Unless Smith bombs this preseason, he'll be under center for the Jets when they play the Raiders in Week 1.

Huddle Up: It's the next step for the second-year QB in his bid to hold off veteran free-agent Michael Vick and grab control of the Jets' starting gig.

Huddle Up: After turning the ball over an AFC-high 26 times last season, Smith's decision-making is under the microscope this offseason, especially with the Jets bringing in veteran Michael Vick. It sounds like Smith is making progress, but the real tests -- i.e. the preseason and early regular-season contests -- are still to come.
Posted: 7/27/2014 2:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Nothing unexpected here as it's going to be up to the newcomer Vick to outplay and unseat the second-year Smith this preseason. Smith will also hasten a change under center if he can't show he's cleaned up his decision-making after turning the ball over 26 times as a rookie.

Huddle Up: Michael Vick already knows Marty Mornhinweg's offense, and the Jets pretty much know what Vick can do. Smith getting the reps is hardly a shock, and he's still in the driver's seat for the QB1 gig in New York.

Huddle Up: Those stuck with Smith in dynasty leagues would settle for the second-year QB winning the team's starting gig, reducing his AFC-high 26 turnovers from a year ago and posting a few more 300-yard passing games after only recording one as a rookie.

Huddle Up: Another offseason, another QB tussle in Jets camp. To win the job, Smith is going to have to improve, most specifically reducing his AFC QB-high 26 turnovers from last season. At the same time, he only had one 300-yard passing game.

Huddle Up: Cue the circus music -- we could have Smith-Sanchez II playing in the Big Apple's big tent again this training camp. Before that happens though, Sanchez would likely have to take a pay cut as he's scheduled to count $13.1 million against the cap this coming season.

Huddle Up: Sounds like much ado about nothing, but because it's Geno Smith it makes the news. Unless Roger Goodell uses this incident to crack down on Beats by Dre, this is a non-story.

Huddle Up: Smith's passing numbers definitely need some work, and maybe putting some better pass-catching talent around him will make the most difference. Smith, though, belongs on fantasy-draft radars because of his rushing ability as he finished eighth among QBs with 366 rushing yards in 2013 and matched Cam Newton with a QB league-high 6 rushing TDs.

Huddle Up: After struggling throughout November, December was just as rough for Smith. Simms wasn't much better, and it remains to be seen what the Jets' plan is going forward.
Posted: 11/25/2013 5:39pm ET
Huddle Up: We're not sure if this is a good or bad thing for that offense. The way things have gone in recent weeks, we're thinking "bad."

Huddle Up: This is becoming a trend for Smith, who has not played well for several weeks. This is going to affect all the fantasy players in that offense.
Posted: 11/17/2013 9:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Ryan is going to stick with Smith, which could be a bit of a drag on the rest of the skill players.

Huddle Up: In overall points (Huddle Performance scoring), Smith ranks a respectable 11th among fantasy QBs, and his owners will have to be content to ride out the ups and downs with the rookie.
Posted: 10/8/2013 12:20am ET
Huddle Up: The rookie entered the game with a league-high 11 turnovers (8 interceptions, 3 fumbles) and 4 TD passes, but had the trio of scoring passes while failing to commit a turnover. He capped the night by deftly driving the Jets 55 yards in 8 plays over the final 1:54 for the winning FG. With the Jets at 3-2, Smith and the team most certainly aren't the disasters they were predicted to be.
Posted: 9/24/2013 6:52pm ET
Huddle Up: It all helped Smith become the first Jets rookie QB to 300 yards in a game (331) and has made WRs Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill hot waiver-wire pickups this week. The schedule does toughen up again though for Smith this week as he he faces his third top-10 defense, in terms of fewest points allowed to opposing QBs, in 4 weeks after getting a breather vs. the Bills (No. 23) last week.
Posted: 9/14/2013 8:12pm ET
Huddle Up: You never know what's going to happen when it comes to the Jets' quarterback situation but if Smith gets benched in favor of Brady Quinn or Matt Simms, it's not a great vote of confidence from the organization.
Posted: 9/13/2013 12:39am ET
Huddle Up: Up against Bill Belichick and the Pats' defense on a short week in New England's home opener, the rookie was between a rock and a hard place in his 2nd career start and his stats reflected that even though he passed for more yards than counterpart Tom Brady. Particularly damaging were the off-target throws in the fourth quarter that resulted in easy Patriot picks.
Posted: 9/5/2013 8:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Ryan has no choice but to express public confidence in the rookie with Mark Sanchez out. Smith will have his moments, but the Bucs' defense is a solid play Sunday vs. the rookie and the reconfigured offense.
Posted: 9/4/2013 8:40pm ET
Huddle Up: How many Jets were selected in the first 10 rounds of your fantasy draft? That's how much relevance Gang Green players have in the fantasy world right now. Perhaps Smith lights it up and changes all of that Sunday. If he doesn't, it will be another long season for offensive players wearing green in New York.
Posted: 8/30/2013 7:58pm ET
Huddle Up: It sounds like a lot of people making decisions in New York want Geno Smith to be the Jets' starting quarterback. Whether or not he's ready is another story. Other than maybe Chris Ivory, fantasy owners shouldn't have any Jets offensive players in their starting fantasy lineups for Week 1.
