But whether they're willing to admit it or not, Percy Harvin really does give Geno Smith and the Jets' decision-makers a better look at whether Geno can be the guy down the road. Or whether the Jets will need to give serious consideration to spending another high draft pick -- or going out on the free agent or trade market -- for a quarterback. With less and less patience when it comes to quarterback development in the NFL, these next nine games are pivotal to Smith's future.

If he can show consistent improvement with an explosive talent like Harvin on one side, the reliable Eric Decker on the other, and Jeremy Kerley, Jace Amaro and Jeff Cumberland as his other targets, then the Jets will get a better fix on whether Smith can be the guy.

Jets beat writer Rich Cimini sees TE Jace Amaro as someone's stock who is rising:

The rookie finished with a team-high five catches for 58 yards, including four catches in the second half.

What took so long? They should've featured Amaro from the outset, especially against the Lions' suspect safeties, but he was targeted only once in the first half.

Fantasy Impact:

Early on, Jeff Cumberland got most of the reps on passing downs. Amaro needs to be a bigger part of the offense, the story said, and his ability to run after the catch is a much-needed dimension. If you're hurting at the position, Amaro may be a guy to grab off the wire, perhaps especially for those who have done the Jordan Reed and Niles Paul dance so far this season.
