Notes: OC Chan Gailey has been reunited with Fitzpatrick, whom the team signed to compete with Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick averaged 14.6 fantasy points in 45 games under Gailey, so he'll be a QB2/streaming option if he wins the starting job. He has a few good weapons in the passing game, including Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall, Jace Amaro and Jeremy Kerley.

ESPN Jets beat writer Rich Cimini answer a question about rookie Bryce Petty beating out Geno Smith for the starting QB job.
Cimini: I'll tell you what I've seen from Bryce Petty: arm talent. His arm is good enough to make all the throws. But, as you know from watching Geno Smith, it takes more than a good arm to be an effective quarterback. We won't know about Petty's intangibles until we see him in game conditions, facing a live pass rush. Some fans might be hoping he pulls a Russell Wilson, a middle-round pick who blows away everyone from day one. The Jets would love to see that happen, but Wilson's advantage was that he already was well-versed in the Seattle Seahawks' offense, having played in a West Coast system in college. That's not the case with Petty, who played in an up-tempo spread at Baylor. There will be a steep learning curve.
Cimini went on to add the Jets coaches like Petty's moxie and believe he has that "it" factor. But there's a long way to go before the season. Ryan Fitzpatrick could also be a factor in the Jets QB job.

Week 15 – Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Indianapolis Colts
After throwing six TDs in the previous game, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for only 135 yards on 19 attempts and no scores last week in Jacksonville. He did run for 19 yards, including a four-yard TD. In the Week 6 home loss to the Colts, Ryan threw for 212 yards and was sacked five times. He is a low QB2 play, especially with Andre Johnson questionable after suffering a concussion last Sunday.
