While Vick isn't currently injured, players with multiple concussions in their history, including one that caused an extended absence, are at higher risk to suffer further brain traumas. Given the league's sensitivity to concussions, Vick is at higher risk to miss time in upcoming seasons due to his history of brain trauma.


At this point in the offseason, Michael Vick has said that second-year quarterback Geno Smith is the starter, a sentiment reportedly echoed by the other players, if not outright by the team yet. Vick was brought in to challenge Smith though, and he will push him. We know Vick still has something left in the tank and he is familiar with Marty Mornhinweg's offense from their time together in Philadelphia. If Smith stumbles--either in camp, preseason or early in the regular season--Vick will get a shot and he would be able to excel with the receivers and run game the Jets have put together. Of course, while he has gas left in the tank, Vick also has a propensity towards injury and it's unlikely he'd finish a season in one piece. That issue, along with the likelihood Smith wins the job, make Vick risky as anything but bench depth with upside in the deeper leagues of fantasy. (May 22)

Jets | Geno Smith receives most of snaps with starters (Sat Jul 26, 10:02 PM) - New York Jets QB Geno Smith received 16 snaps with the first-team offense during practice Saturday, July 26, while QB Michael Vick received three snaps. Smith has received 42 starter reps in three practices while Vick has received 12 snaps.

Our View: Zero surprise here. Smith is going to get every opportunity to win the starting job with the Jets. We'll see if he struggles and is replaced by Michael Vick.

Jets | GM says no advantage in QB competition (Fri Jul 25, 09:19 PM) - Neither QB Geno Smith nor QB Michael Vick has an advantage in the competition for the starting quarterback job, according to general manager John Idzik.

Our View: The team might really want Smith to be the guy. The second-year pro is seen as a potential franchise quarterback, and he'll get every opportunity to hang onto the job. Vick has the experience edge, and he's great insurance for the team if Smith fails to impress.

Jets | Geno Smith dominates first-team reps (Fri Jul 25, 12:32 PM) - New York Jets QB Geno Smith logged three-quarters of the first-team practice reps for the second straight day on Friday, July 25.

Our View: As expected, this is Smith's job to lose. We've got to see a lot more than puff comments from Rex Ryan and the team before we see him as anything more than a fantasy QB3. He has the tools around him now, so he should excel. If he doesn't the Jets might hook him quick and throw in Michael Vick, who could be an intriguing backup fantasy player if that happens.

Jets | Geno Smith getting most of the first-team snaps (Thu Jul 24, 12:23 PM) - New York Jets QB Geno Smith is receiving most of the first-team snaps in practice Thursday, July 24. Smith took 13 first-snaps, and QB Michael Vick took four first-team snaps.

Our View: Vick is there is push and maybe mentor Smith (he had his best year in offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's system in Philadelphia in 2010), but he won't start unless Smith nosedives or gets hurt. Smith has speculative value in deep leagues coming off of a strong finish to 2013. The ability to add stats with his legs and addition of Eric Decker gives Smith a fighting chance at fantasy relevance this year.

Jets | Teammates backing Geno Smith (Wed Jul 16, 02:03 PM) - New York Jets WR David Nelson said his teammates believe this is QB Geno Smith's team and that QB Michael Vick is seen as the backup. 'For all of us, it's Geno's team,” Nelson said. 'And from what we've been told and what we've been working toward, it's Geno's team, and Mike's coming in to kind of (fill) a supporting role. If anything happens to Geno, we have a proven starter and a proven winner backing him up. That's the direction we’re moving.'

Our View: Nelson is being a good teammate, but right now there is little clarity on who will be the starter for the Jets. Vick is not washed up, and he could easily beat out Smith for the top spot on the depth chart.
