And I model my body after Ryan Gossling, but sometimes you're born a beanpole, and sometimes you're drafted by the Jets.

Dem da breaks.

I'm actually intrigued by the Jets QB situation. I don't wanna draft geno or Vick but in one of my leagues with "Team QBs" teams like NYJ and Cleveland are on my radar.

Pluses:

-added Decker, Jace, Chris Johnson

-2nd year has to show improvement

-was fantasy relevant/useful during last few games of 2013

-ability to run :)

He did have three games in which he scored 3td's last year. He was at times fantasy relevant, and played better down the stretch.

It starts with ball security.

If that happens, we'll know pretty quickly what we're looking at.

If that doesn't happen, we'll know pretty quickly what we're looking at.

Got him on my deep deep deep desperate double secret sleeper list.

He is a tempting option on draftkings. Especially for week 1 against the raidahs...huge game against them last year

Interesting take. It's always the big value guys who get over on the weekly salary cap leagues.

But for the longer haul...I always keep an open mind when it comes to running QBs.

Plenty of guys won plenty of games with Cam, Tebow, and even Tyrelle Pryor while their threads were blowing up with derrogatory slams on their games.

I don't care if he compares himself to Johnny Unitas...if he can keep from turning the ball over he should be in the conversation.

As a Jets fan and seeing what I've seen of him, there were some moments last year that he could really move the offense. I think back to that Saints game (not impressive numbers but the flow in that game was how they Jets needed to beat the Saints given their problems on defense) and the Cleveland game where he threw a couple TDs, ran one in and didn't turn the ball over.

As many above have said, I think he has a real chance to be something if he matures and takes better care of the ball. He seems to have a hunger and wants to improve. He was a rookie thrown into a situation where his best case scenario was don't get hurt and rely on the run game. This year he's actually got a playmaker or two that can catch passes and a veteran that can teach him how to play the EXACT West-Coast system he's playing in.

For fantasy, I consider him a deep deep sleeper. For reference Ryan Tannehill is a "deep" sleeper for me, so I'd consider Geno a tier below him.

I think Geno is this years version of the QB who comes out of nowhere and puts up Top 10 Fantasy numbers. Take a look at his stats in Jet's wins vs loses last year.

Basically when the Jet's won Geno averaged the same number of fantasy points as Drew Brees. While obviously I'm not saying he's going to average those numbers over the course of the season it does show that there is some talent there. Plus you have to remember this guy was throwing to no one last year. This year he'll have Decker, Amaro, and CJ2K. Plus if you look at their receiving core it's like a basketball team out there. Decker is 6'3, Hill is 6'4, Nelson is 6'5, Amaro is 6'6, Sudfeld is 6'7 which makes me think Geno can do some real damage in the redzone.

What're the chances that Geno is worthy of a start week 1? I seen Rodgers struggle a bit against the Raider D.

god you have to have had some horrid draft to consider starting Geno in week 1. And this is coming from a guy who thinks hes a great sleeper to put up top 10 numbers like the guy above said.

If I'm streaming why can't he be a good option? He put up around 20 points last year against them. Now he has CJ?K and Decker.

Streaming is always an option an in emergency or if it is your strategy, but if your other QB is Aaron Rodgers and you are considering Geno over him in any week other than Green Bay's bye week, then you are over-thinking.

I watched that entire first half and was quite impressed by the Raiders D. Lacy only played one series and carved them up when he did but they did a really good job of pressuring Rodgers and their CBs did a good job of not giving up any big plays. Two of the three scoring drives by the Packers were kept alive by dumb personal foul penalties.

I forgot to mention this but the Jets defense should take a step back this year. Their secondary, after already losing their #1 CB Cromartie, has been hit by injuries this preseason. Former first-round CB Dee Milliner was benched multiple times in 2013; OLB Quinton Coples doesn't get to the QB enough, and Calvin Pace will be 34 in October and is rapidaly declining. Not to mention the Jets will rely on rookie Calvin Pryor to instantly be their best safety. Geno should get an increase in volume of attempts as the Jets will need to score more points to stay in games.

I'm currently slated to start him week 1 in the Roto League.

Went into the draft planning to stream QBs, came out with Bradford based on his first 2 weeks of the season being so favorable, but with the ACL, Geno was #2. Oakland gives up the 3rd most fantasy points to the QB, and his legs alone should prevent you from a complete bust.

Not to get off topic but just wanted to point out a few things as far as the defense goes. Coples was one of the leaders on the team in QB hits and has lost some weight so he'll be quicker getting to the QB. Calvin Pace had a great year last year so not sure how you can say hes "rapidly declining" plus Barnes should be back soon(missed all of last year) and they added Babin to help out the pass rush. Cromartie was terrible last year so its not like they can be that much worse at the CB position. You say they are relying on Calvin Pryor to be their best safety yet they had the same safeties minus Pryor going into last year so once again you can't say they are worse off than last year.

Never think it can't get worse with the Jets. The best thing they did was cut Dimitri Patterson, it's pretty bad when you can take a Safety/LB Hybrid guy and he outplays your free agent corner signing.

Assuming Millner continues to have nagging injuries, who plays CB if Walls or Antonio Allen gets hurt? Kyle Wilson on the outside? It can get much, much worse.

To bring this back on the topic of Geno, he played very well this preseason. He showed great decision making skills in the third game, where he seemed to play within himself and take short gains on runs or passes when the deep ball wasn't there or the play didn't go his way. I thought for sure when the Jets threw 5M Mike Vick's way that Vick would take the starting job, but Geno looked legit in the preseason.

Geno Smith showed a maturity this preseason that Sanchez never learned...know when to give up on a play based on game situations. It will serve him well.
