  • Posted: 12/2/2018 11:43am ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Josh McCown will make his third straight start in Week 13 on Sunday, Dec. 2, with fellow QB Sam Darnold (foot) inactive with a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: With one TD, three interceptions and an average of 205.5 passing yards, McCown's previous two starts were less than stellar, so use him only as a last resort today against a Titans defense that has been tough on opposing fantasy QBs.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 9:23am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown will start in Week 13 on Sunday, Dec. 2, against the Tennessee Titans according to sources, as Sam Darnold (foot) will miss a third straight game with a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: Unlike last season, McCown has struggled in his two starts so far in 2018, completing 54.4 percent of his passes for 411 yards, one TD and three interceptions. Now comes a road matchup against a Titans defense allowing the eighth-fewest points to opposing fantasy quarterbacks. Give McCown and his pass-catchers a wide berth if possible.

  • Posted: 12/1/2018 6:14pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown is expected to start against the Tennessee Titans in Week 13 as QB Sam Darnold (foot) continues to recover, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: McCown has one touchdown and three interceptions in his first two starts in place of Sam Darnold, so he can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 9:39am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back, hand) was upgraded Friday, Nov. 30, to full practice participation and is not listed on the team's Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Rookie Sam Darnold (foot), meanwhile, remained limited Friday as he attempts to come back from a foot injury so the veteran could be headed toward a third straight start Sunday in Tennessee.

  • Posted: 11/28/2018 3:48pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back, hand) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: With Sam Darnold's (foot) return to practice on Wednesday, McCown's time as starter may be winding down anyway regardless if he's able to suit up Sunday. Either way, he belongs far away from any starting lineups.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 7:19pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown completed 26-of-45 passes for 276 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: McCown was getting the nod with rookie Sam Darnold (foot) on the shelf, but the offense wasn't able to generate a lot of momentum. If McCown is called upon again in Week 13 he doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration.

  • Posted: 11/23/2018 10:33am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown will start in Week 12 after QB Sam Darnold was ruled out Friday, Nov. 23, with a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: The 39-year-old McCown will be back at the helm after his 17-of-34, 135-yard, two-interception dud in Week 10 against the Bills. Now he gets what actually could be a more favorable matchup against the Patriots, but he's still a QB3.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 2:35pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 17-for-34 for 135 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: McCown was playing for the first time this season and struggled against the Bills. Josh Darnold could be ready to play after the Week 11 bye, but owners may want to avoid the Jets quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 11/10/2018 6:49am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown will start Week 10's game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: McCown is receiving the starting nod because Sam Darnold (foot) is recovering from a significant foot sprain, although it remains uncertain if Darnold will dress for the game as the No. 2 quarterback or be deactivated. McCown should be viewed as a somewhat risky option for fantasy owners because he has not received much playing time but he could be serviceable as a bye week replacement in deeper leagues. Davis Webb will back up McCown if Darnold is unavailable.

  • Posted: 8/28/2018 8:36am ET

    New York Jets QBs Sam Darnold, Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater all are in the running to start in Week 1, and Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he likely will wait until after the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 30, to make the decision. 'Sitting down with the coaches, we'll go over everything and everybody will give their opinion,' Bowles said. 'We just haven't talked about it, and we won’t until after the last preseason game. We'll sit down as a staff and we'll go over every position, including that one, and we'll come out with our guys.'

    Huddle Up: Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, has started each of the last two Jets preseason games and offers the most upside of the bunch. But he's raw and is only a QB3, even in two-quarterback leagues. McCown would probably be the best option for the fantasy values of the Jets' other skill position players, but even if he opens the season as the starter, Darnold is almost sure to take over sooner rather than later.

  • Posted: 8/8/2018 4:41pm ET

    New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold will all receive playing time in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 9, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: There is no clear favorite for Jets starting quarterback job, so the preseason should be a big factor in the decision. Darnold should be a popular quarterback in keeper leagues, but none of the quarterbacks should be considered more than a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 6/14/2018 10:35am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown will begin training camp as the starting quarterback, according to head coach Todd Bowles. The starter for Week 1, however, is up in the air.

    Huddle Up: The Jets will have a legitimate competition between McCown, Sam Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater. McCown has the experience and past success to give him the edge, but Darnold and Bridgewater are young and talented. Whoever starts in New York will only be a bye-week replacement or spot start at best.

  • Posted: 5/24/2018 12:15pm ET

    New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater will be considered for the starting quarterback job Week 1 if he plays well during the preseason and QB Sam Darnold shows he is not ready to play, according to sources. QB Josh McCown likely would be the starter if Bridgewater and Darnold struggle during the preseason.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during training camp and the preseason to see if Darnold, Bridgewater or McCown will be the starting quarterback. None of the quarterbacks would be more than a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 3/27/2018 11:48am ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown will enter training camp as the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: McCown played well this past season and was a valuable fantasy option in most leagues. He may not be the starter for the entire 2018 season but should be at least a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback was long as he starts.

  • Posted: 3/13/2018 2:15pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown has been told that he will be the starting quarterback for the Jets in 2018, but the team is still interested in signing Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: McCown is coming off a solid 2017 season and appears to be a bridge quarterback for the Jets. He probably will have most of his receivers back and could be a solid No. 2 fantasy quarterback that can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against certain opponents.

  • Posted: 3/13/2018 1:44pm ET

    Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Jets) agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal to re-sign with the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: McCown overachieved in his first season with the Jets. He'll be 39 years old before the 2018 season commences, but his 20.1 fantasy points per game last year were tied with Drew Brees for 15th in the NFL. If he can even come close to what he did in 2017 he'll be a serviceable bye-week replacement at worst this season.

  • Posted: 3/10/2018 8:47pm ET

    New York Jets impending free-agent QB Josh McCown will likely be re-signed to a one-year deal worth about $8 million, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, and Cimini believes McCown will serve as a 'bridge' quarterback to a rookie.

    Huddle Up: McCown had a solid year for the Jets in 2017, and if he ends up back in New York, he can be a useful QB2 as long as he is starting.

  • Posted: 2/2/2018 3:08pm ET

    New York Jets impending free-agent QB Josh McCown said he hopes to re-sign with the Jets this offseason and would not have a problem being a bridge quarterback for the team.

    Huddle Up: McCown is coming off a very good 2017 season where he threw for 2,926 yards and 18 touchdowns. He may be able to find a starting job even if he does not re-sign with the Jets, so owners should monitor him during free agency. He could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team next season.

  • Posted: 1/25/2018 5:56pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) said his broken left hand that he sustained in the club's Week 14 matchup against the Denver Broncos is still 'healing up' and that he's just 'a few weeks away' from being 100 percent.

    Huddle Up: McCown exceeded any and all expectations in his first season with the Jets prior to going down due to injury, as the 38-year-old ended up with an impressive 94.5 passer rating, which is his career best for a season in which he played more than eight games. From a fantasy perspective, if McCown were to be back in New York next year, it's very likely he wouldn't be able to duplicate his 2017 success, however. He'll be more of a guy for two-quarterback formats.

  • Posted: 1/1/2018 3:07pm ET

    New York Jets impending free-agent QB Josh McCown is a player the Jets would be interested in re-signing this offseason, according to head coach Todd Bowles. McCown still has not decided if he will continue his playing career.

    Huddle Up: McCown was a solid starting quarterback for the Jets this season and finished with 2,926 yards and 18 touchdowns. He probably would start again in 2018 if he returns to the Jets and would be a solid No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 8:14pm ET

    New York Jets QB Josh McCown said he will have to talk with his family before he decides if he will play in 2018, but he said it would be exciting to work with offensive coordinator John Morton for another year.

    Huddle Up: McCown will be a free agent after this season. If he does decide to play again in 2018 and can land a starting gig, he has QB2 potential.
