The Jets aren't going to want their rookie QB to miss any practice snaps to help get him up to speed. He really came on strong in Week 3, posting a ridiculous 11.4 yards per attempt as part of his 331-yard, two-TD gem against the Bills.
The Jets have kept things fairly simple for Smith this year, and he's remained in the pocket for most of the game. The Titans have solid edge rushers and rank 10th in the league in sacks. Surprisingly, Tennessee is ranked 10th in passing yards allowed after coming in dead last in 2012.
Fantasy impact: Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers owners might be on the hunt for a fill-in option this week and Smith could be the answer. He's become much more comfortable in the pocket and is keeping his eyes down the field. Of course, he's still not a top-15 option and should only be used in deep leagues.
