As a dynasty owner in a start 2 qb league who owns Geno Smith I am impressed with what is transpiring in New York. Geno locked himself in a classroom all off season. Not only did he work on knowing his offence inside and out, but he watched game film of the defences he will be playing against this upcoming year. He was getting reads on the defences and coordinators tendencies etc. He also spent time in the gym working out hard, increasing his strength and speed as well as working on his QB footwork.
Geno now has a vet back up QB who will push him and make him better. He has a new weapon in Decker and a boost in the running game with Chris Johnson. All the news so far is he is a different QB, one who is confident in himself and gaining the confidence of his coaching staff and team-mates. He took a beating by many people in the media and fantasy football circles which is leading to a very underrated player heading into this year.
I think Geno is poised to have a very good year. He has an outside shot at finishing just inside the top 12 fantasy QB and in dynasty he his price is cheap. His passing will be much improved and he gets you fantasy points with his legs as he did have 366 yards rushing and 6 td's on the ground in year 1.
Phil Simms mentioned that had Geno been in this years draft he would have been the first QB taken. There is a ton of optimism for Manuel but it is rare for anyone to be on the Geno bandwagon. I am starting up the train and there is a very good bang for your buck opportunity here.
Not to late to climb on board.
