New Orleans Saints QB Luke McCown is firmly entrenched as the team's backup to QB Drew Brees, and QB Garrett Grayson appears to be no threat to end that role anytime soon.
Fantasy Tip: McCown is not draftable in any fantasy format, although if he gets a chance to start due to an injury to Brees he has shown a good grasp of the New Orleans offense and some fantasy upside, especially in DFS, if he gets a chance.

New Orleans Saints QB Luke McCown completed 31 of 38 passes for 310 yards and an interception in a 27-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: McCown ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) didn't look bad for someone who hasn't thrown a pass in the NFL for a few years, but he doesn't need to be considered as a starting option at FantasyScore either.
Mon, 21 Sep 2015 14:59:44 -0700
New Orleans Saints QB Luke McCown would likely be the starting quarterback in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers if QB Drew Brees (shoulder) can't play. Rookie QB Garrett Grayson likely needs more time to develop, as he mostly worked as the fourth-string quarterback in the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: If Brees doesn't suit up, there's no reason why McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) would be an attractive sleeper pick on FantasyScore against a solid Panthers defense. You'd also have to downgrade the rest of New Orleans' offensive weapons significantly if McCown is leading the offense.

The New Orleans Saints have QBs Ryan W. Griffin, Luke McCown and Seneca Wallace in camp, each vying for the primary backup job behind starting QB Drew Brees.
Fantasy Tip: It is likely McCown and Wallace win the job due to their veteran status, with Griffin spending time on the practice squad. However, unless disaster strikes and Brees does down with a long-term injury, none of the trio will have much in the way of fantasy appeal.

McCown is a QB3 at best. Blaine Gabbert's debut may be expedited if McCown proves ineffective, but like McCown, he wouldn't be more than a third QB option.
