Jets | Josh McCown turns in solid Week 3 effort

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:15:21 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown completed 18 of his 23 passes for 249 yards, including a 69-yard TD pass to WR Robby Anderson, in a 20-6 win Sunday, Sept. 24, against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: It was a strong effort, but McCown is still a risky option who may be best as a flex QB, especially with the surprisingly hot Jacksonville Jaguars on tap for Week 4. If he can put a dent in Jacksonville's efforts, then McCown may rise up the charts a bit.

Jets | Josh McCown picked off three times

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:25:30 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown threw three interceptions, one on a two-point conversion, and he finished 26-for-37 for 189 yards in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Can you say mess? The Jets' QB situation is muddy at best, and this means avoid McCown like the plague. A previous tip suggested McCown would be best as a bye-week replacement, but games like Sunday make that even shaky.

Jets | Josh McCown averts crisis, plays decent

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:23:20 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown had to leave the game briefly in the final preseason game Thursday, August 31, against the Philadelphia Eagles when he was hit in the midsection by LB Joe Walker. Despite needing medical help on the field, McCown was able to walk off under his own power and returned one play later. Overall for the evening, he was 6-of-8 for 57 yards.

Fantasy Tip: McCown had himself a fine preseason, ultimately finishing 9-of-12 for 129 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. It's no surprise that he'll be under center for the Jets in Week 1, but simply put, he shouldn't be under center for any fantasy teams whatsoever in the opening week. He's nothing more than a bye-week replacement, and even then, it's a stretch to deploy him considering the Jets' woeful lack of depth around him.

Jets | Josh McCown named starter

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 13:14:04 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown has been named the Week 1 starting quarterback by head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Not much of a surprise considering the play by Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty. It was McCown's job to lose and he has experience and leadership on his side. The Jets will have to pass plenty in 2017 in order to keep up with teams, but that doesn't mean McCown is a reliable starting fantasy quarterback. He's merely a bye-week replacement.

Jets | NYJ starting QB to be named next week

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:00:34 -0700

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg have been competing for the starting quarterback job during training camp, and head coach Todd Bowles said he will name the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: McCown probably is considered the leading candidate at this point after Hackenberg struggled in the second preseason game. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Jets quarterback no matter who is starting.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:16:37 -0700

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg split snaps with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: McCown and Hackenberg appears to be competing for the starting quarterback with McCown probably having an edge because of his experience. Owners in all fantasy leagues should avoid the winner of this competition.

Jets | Josh McCown working with starters

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 12:25:12 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown is receiving the first snaps with the starting offense during practice Saturday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: McCown likely is the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job but will have to compete with Christian Hackenberg for the job. He has had some success during his career but will be playing with a young receiving corps this season. He probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Jets | Josh McCown losing grip on starting gig?

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 17:13:09 -0700

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg made some strides during minicamp, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, and Costello believes Hackenberg could beat out QB Josh McCown to be the Week 1 starter.

Fantasy Tip: With a young, unproven group of receivers, don't expect much fantasy value from whoever ends up under center for the Jets this season.

Jets | Christian Hackenberg making a move?

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 12:39:20 -0700

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg performed a "little better than expected" in minicamp, and QB Josh McCown does not have an "insurmountable lead" over him in the race to start Week 1. QB Bryce Petty is running third on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: As ESPN's Rich Cimini suggests, this position and the Jets' offense is general will likely be a disaster for fantasy purposes. All three quarterbacks can be ignored in drafts this summer.
