Geno Smith believes he is '100 percent' healthy

New York Giants quarterback Geno Smith (knee) told the media he believes he is "100 percent healthy."

Fantasy Impact

Smith, who is recovering from a torn ACL, "thinks he could be cleared in full right now to play if needed." Smith will likely compete with Josh Johnson in training camp and the preseason for the role of Eli Manning's primary backup for 2017. However, since the Giants selected Davis Webb in April's draft, neither Johnson or Smith's roster spots are safe. Expect one of the veterans to be released prior to the start of the regular season.

Geno Smith officially signs with Giants

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting free agent quarterback Geno Smith passed his physical and is signing a one-year, $2 million deal with the New York Giants on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith agreed to terms with the Giants last Friday, pending a physical, which he passed. He will likely enter the 2017 season as Eli Manning's primary backup.

Geno Smith to sign with Giants

The New York Giants and free agent quarterback Geno Smith agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal pending a physical.

Fantasy Impact

Smith, who is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in Week 7 of last season, agreed to terms with the Giants Friday. However, the deal is pending the results of a physical the signal caller will undergo over the weekend. Barring an injury to Eli Manning, though, Smith will have zero fantasy value in 2017.

Geno Smith could be sidelined through September

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith (knee) told the media he "feels great" and that he "should be ready for training camp." However, ESPN's Rich Cimini believes there are "concerns" that the impending free agent signal caller "could be sidelined until September."

Fantasy Impact

Smith, who blew out his ACL in Week 7 of the 2016 regular season, could be on the mend well into the offseason. If his knee is worse off than expected, it could deter teams, including the Jets, from signing him sooner rather than later until there is a better grasp on his recovery timetable. Smith could linger unsigned on the open market as a result.

Geno Smith suffers torn ACL

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that New York Jets QB Geno Smith (knee) suffered a torn ACL in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport is describing Smith's MRI results as a "brutal" ACL tear, contrary to the signal caller's belief that he had suffered a minor knee injury. Smith's 2016 season as well as his tenure with the Jets are likely both over.
