|Geno Smith scores through air, on ground in Week 2 |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/14/14) Jets quarterback Geno Smith completed just 16 of his 32 pass attempts for 176 yards while throwing a touchdown and an interception in his team's 31-24 loss to the Packers in Week 2.
Smith also added 26 yards on seven carries and took it into the end zone himself on a bootleg from the one-yard line on the team's first drive after an Aaron Rodgers fumble created a short field. He then hit Eric Decker with a nice pass on a 29-yard touchdown to put the Jets up 14-0. After the Jets capped a 17-play drive with a Chris Ivory touchdown run early in the second quarter, Smith had trouble keeping the offense moving, and the Jets were outscored 28-3 from that point on.
Despite the two total touchdowns, it was a step back for Smith after he completed 82 percent of his passes in a Week 1 win over the Raiders. He'll look to get back on track when he faces the Bears at home on Monday night in Week 3.

Smith's touchdown was a 5-yard pass to Chris Johnson in the second quarter. He also lost a fumble.
The Jets play at Green Bay in Week 2.
|Geno Smith a low-end Fantasy option in Week 1 |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/4/14) The thought of starting most quarterbacks at home against the Oakland defense has been typcially intriguing.
But perhaps not Jets second-year quarterback Geno Smith. And perhaps not against the 2014 Raiders.
Smith did enjoy a quietly strong preseason. He completed 23 of 33 passes for 268 yards with one touchodwn and one pick. His 91.5 quarterback rating was encouraging. But several factors weigh against sticking him in lineups, even in deeper leagues.
One is that the Raiders have bolstered their defense with the acquisitions of pass-rushing ends Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley and Antonio Smith, who combined for 21 sacks last season, as well as promising outside linebacker and top draft pick Khalil Mack. These are not the same Raiders that allowed opposing quarterbacks to compile a league-high 102.4 quarterback rating in 2013.
Smith, who finished last season with 3,046 yards passing, but 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions, might also be short on weapons. It's too early to determine if new wideout Eric Decker was merely the beneficiary of having Peyton Manning at quarterback or if he can thrive playing pitch-and-catch with Smith. Jeremy Kerley is starting on the other side and the Jets have no featured back. Rex Ryan has declared that he will switch off between Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.
Perhaps Smith will emerge as a viable Fantasy starter this season. But he's too big a risk at this point to trust.
|Geno Smith officially named Jets starter at QB |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/23/14) The Jets officially named Geno Smith the team's starting quarterback Friday, a move that does not come as much of a surprise given his usage in the preseason.
"I think he's taken off from where he left off [last season]," coach Rex Ryan said after announcing the decision. "I expect great things in the future."
Smith has been working almost exclusively with the first time offense during training camp and preseason, as Michael Vick hasn't made much of a push to start. Smith made the decision easier with his solid preseason play, completing 69.7 percent of his 33 passes, for 268 yards and a touchdown. He added a rushing touchdown while turning the ball over just once.
Smith started all 16 games as a rookie, completing just 55.8 percent of his passes and finishing with 12 passing touchdowns to 21 interceptions.
|Geno Smith looks sharp in dress rehearsal game |

(8/22/14) Jets quarterback Geno Smith appeared in full control of the offense Friday night against the Giants in exhibition play.
Smith hooked up with one of his new weapons, Eric Decker, for a 27-yard connection in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Smith found an open Jace Amaro on a playaction play for a 1-yard touchdown. He compiled 137 yards through the air while completing 9 of 14 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 120.2 passer rating.
Smith was named the Week 1 starter for the Jets after the game.
|Geno Smith had a rocky rookie season in 2013, and he enters this year expected to compete for the starting job with Michael Vick. Last year, Smith started every game and played like a first-year quarterback. When he was good, he was great with five games of at least 22 Fantasy points. But he also had seven games with 10 Fantasy points or less, and his total stats -- 56 percent completions for 3,046 yards, 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions and 366 rushing yards and six touchdowns -- weren't pretty. The Jets upgraded their offense with the additions of Eric Decker, Chris Johnson, Jace Amaro, Jalen Saunders and Shaq Evans, which will help Smith, but first he has to win the job over Vick. If Smith starts for the Jets in Week 1 then he should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in deeper leagues. He's not worth drafting in most seasonal leagues, but he is worth a late-round pick in dynasty formats. Even if Vick starts in 2014, Smith could still be the long-term answer for the Jets if he progresses from his rookie campaign.
