Jets | Equal opportunity for Jets' quarterbacks

Tue, 23 May 2017 12:56:40 -0700

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg will be given equal first-team repetitions during organized team activities, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is by far the most experienced quarterback in this group. He has the most fantasy upside, too. The veteran isn't close to QB1 territory, but he may be a valuable bye-week replacement if the matchup is right.

Jets | Josh McCown expects competition

Wed, 03 May 2017 13:25:28 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown said he expects to compete with QBs Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty for the starting quarterback job.

Fantasy Tip: McCown will be the favorite for the job because of his experience, so he would need a bad training camp and preseason to lose the job. He will have some decent weapons to work with on offense but should not be more than a low-end No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Jets | New York will have QB competition

Tue, 02 May 2017 16:56:16 -0700

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty will compete for the starting quarterback position this offseason, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran McCown is the best bet to win the starting gig, but he will turn 38 years old in July and has only played in 13 games the last two seasons. Whoever starts for the Jets can be avoided in all formats.

Jets | Josh McCown not guaranteed starting job

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 12:00:14 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown has not been assured that he will begin training camp as starter, and it is a decision which will be made by head coach Todd Bowles, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are "highly unlikely" to add another free-agent quarterback per Maccagnan, but he acknowledged drafting another one is a possibility. McCown should still be considered the odds-on favorite, but he will turn 38 in July and has never played a full season. In short, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg should expect to make starts this season. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to find any value in this passing game in 2017.

Jets | Josh McCown signing with Jets

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 16:17:23 -0700

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Browns) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New York Jets Monday, March 20, according to his agent. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: McCown likely becomes the leading candidate to be the starting quarterback for the Jets in 2017. He has had some success over the last few years but was limited to six games played in 2016 and finished with 1,100 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions. McCown will have a solid receiving corps to work with in New York but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Jets | Josh McCown finishes visit with Jets

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 13:26:52 -0700

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Browns) finished his visit with the New York Jets Sunday, March 19, but did not reach an agreement on a contract. The two sides will continue to talk but no deal is imminent.

Fantasy Tip: McCown spent the weekend with the Jets and appears to have a decent chance to sign with New York if the two sides can work out a deal. McCown probably would be the starting quarterback if he signs with the Jets but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Jets | NYJ talking contract with Josh McCown

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 13:25:21 -0700

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Browns) is meeting with the New York Jets again Saturday, March 18, and the two sides have discussed contract parameters, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: McCown probably would be the starting quarterback if he decides to sign with the Jets. He played five games in 2016 and finished with 1,100 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions. McCown has had success in his career but would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Jets | Josh McCown to spend weekend in New York

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 09:39:42 -0700

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Browns) will visit with the New York Jets on Friday, March 17, and Saturday, March 18, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: If McCown signs with the Jets, there is a very real chance he would start in 2017 given the current state of affairs. New York is in full rebuild mode, so McCown could be ignored in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Jets | Josh McCown of interest to Jets

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 13:37:20 -0700

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Browns) has been contacted by the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: McCown could realistically start for the Jets, who are floundering at quarterback, as usual. Jay Cutler has also been linked to the Jets, but neither McCown nor Cutler possesses much fantasy appeal. This situation should be avoided for the foreseeable future.
