Fantasy Profile: Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, New York Jets

It is a new offense system with a new head coach but you still got to be nervous of anyone with a Jets uniform on. They have the weapons to be able to be competitive but you have to expect something negative to happen.  Geno Smith is already injured, after being punched in the jaw be a teammate.  He was the expected starter, but now it looks like Ryan Fitzpatrick will play in week one.  He has played well in the past, but is also a gunslinger who is prone to throw interceptions.  What happens when Smith comes back is anyone’s guess.  This may be one fantasy situation that you are just best off to avoid, even with the Jets adding Brandon Marshall.
