Michael Vick followed up comments he made in May about the lack of open competition for the starting quarterback position in New York, by suggesting that it is already known Geno Smith is the Jets’ starter. Vick made the comments as the team reported for training camp on Wednesday: “I think that’s already been addressed as far as who the starter is. There’s no more speculation about that.” Barring a freak occurence, Geno Smith will beunder center in Week 1. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: If Vick's words are to be believed, then Geno Smith's fantasy stock immediately improves. He still isn’t projected as a starter, even in a two quarterback league, but he could be used to plug holes on a bye week, or if a team’s QB1 goes down with injury. In most eight and ten team leagues, Smith should be available on waivers, but he will be worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses.

Jon Ritchie and Kevin Gilbride discuss the quarterback competition between Geno Smith and Michael Vick. Gilbride believes that the Jets want Smith to have the job for the entire season and thinks he has a good chance to achieve that.

Geno has the talent to succeed, but there's something off about him. He isn't likely to play a full season with Vick in town.
Fantasy Team Advice | Jul 30th
Although he should be the starting QB for the Jets, Geno still has some developing to do, and shouldn't be targeted outside of 2 QB leagues

The positive note on Geno Smith is that despite the struggles that he incurred during his rookie season, he has made no excuses nor has he wavered much in confidence. The Jets brought in Michael Vick to act as a veteran role model and backup to Smith, but make no mistake, this is Smith's job to lose. The Jets brought in wide receiver Eric Decker and running back Chris Johnson to help add some quality elements to a very stagnant 2013 offense. Will it be money well spent? The jury is still out on that. None-the-less, while Smith may find it hard to become a QB2 this season, he doesn't have much competition in fantasy football keeping him outside the top-24.
