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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Posted: 12/12/2017 3:55pm ET
Huddle Up: It will be Bryce Petty behind center for the Jets for the rest of the season, unless they want to give Christian Hackenberg some looks too. Bottom line: stay away from them unless you're desperate.
Posted: 12/11/2017 12:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Bryce Petty should finish the season out as the starter, but Christian Hackenberg could also be given some repetitions if the Jets want to further evaluate the position heading into the offseason. Neither player deserves fantasy attention.
Posted: 12/10/2017 4:34pm ET
Huddle Up: If McCown is forced to miss time it would mean Bryce Petty likely takes over as the team's starting quarterback. That's a huge downgrade for the fantasy value of receivers like Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, etc.
Posted: 12/10/2017 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if McCown will be able to return to the game or not, but the Jets trail the Broncos 20-0 early in the fourth quarter and he tried to come back and couldn't, so it appears his day is likely over.
Posted: 12/6/2017 11:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Bowles had already sort of said this without saying it, but in the process left open the interpretation that Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg could step in if/when the Jets were mathematically eliminated. That won't be the case. McCown has been surprisingly effective this season, including back-to-back 300-plus-yard games the past two weeks, and is a serviceable No. 1 quarterback against the free-falling Broncos this Sunday.
Posted: 12/3/2017 2:37pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a very good quarterback for the Jets this season and has also become a decent fantasy option for owners. He will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense in Week 14 but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/1/2017 3:52pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a very good quarterback for the Jets this season and has seven touchdowns and one interception over the last four games. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues this week.
Posted: 11/30/2017 3:20pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown is coming off one of his best efforts of 2017, as he surpassed 300 yards for the second time this season. It was also his second three-touchdown performance as well, and he's tossed just one pick in the last four weeks. As a result, the veteran journeyman will be on the streaming radar for quarterback-desperate owners seeking a low-end QB1 this weekend.
Posted: 11/29/2017 2:54pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown received a vote of confidence from his coach Todd Bowles earlier this week, and he'll be the guy under center in New York for the remainder of the season. How strange is it that the Jets have more stability at the quarterback position right now than their stadium counterparts, the Giants?
Posted: 11/28/2017 6:38am ET
Huddle Up: McCown is quietly having a really good season. He has completed 67.3 percent of his passes, 2,549 yards with 17 touchdowns and eight picks. He has thrown for at least two touchdowns six times this season. He's a matchup play in fantasy, but the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 might not be the one to pick.
Posted: 11/26/2017 6:48pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has at least one touchdown pass in each of his past seven outings, and he has two or more TD passes in five of those contests with two rushing touchdowns during the span. He has emerged as a decent QB2 in most fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers. The Jets host the skidding Chiefs in Week 13.
Posted: 11/14/2017 6:08am ET
Huddle Up: With bye weeks nearly in the rearview mirror, McCown's roster viability is pretty marginal in fantasy.
Posted: 11/12/2017 12:38pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown continues to be a solid starting quarterback for the Jets and has seven touchdowns and two interceptions in his last three games. He will be facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 11/8/2017 6:30pm ET
Huddle Up: There's no question that McCown has exceeded any and all expectations in his first year with the Jets, especially since he was merely supposed to be a bridge quarterback. The 38-year-old has been enjoying a renaissance season, posting a 96.1 QB Rating, which would be the second-highest of his career if it holds, but owners shouldn't invest too much into the longtime journeyman. Sooner than later, it seems likely McCown will begin to regress towards his norm.
Posted: 11/2/2017 10:12pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown was in full game manager mode Thursday night, throwing for a season-low 140 yards in the process. He did account for multiple TDs for the fifth straight game, though, so he at least deserves a roster spot as a QB2.
Posted: 10/29/2017 1:46pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has thrown for at least two touchdowns in each of the last four games and has been a solid starting quarterback for the Jets this season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense next week and probably should be kept on the bench.
Posted: 10/27/2017 12:12pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a solid starter for the Jets this season and has thrown seven touchdowns and four interceptions over the last three games. He will be facing a solid Atlanta Falcons pass defense and probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Posted: 10/26/2017 2:39pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been an under-the-radar fantasy quarterback in 2017. The Jets have been forced to pass early and often frequently and McCown has held his own. In fact, he currently sits at the QB10 spot through seven weeks. Don't be afraid to plug him into your starting lineup, especially if byes and/or injuries abound at the position.
Posted: 10/25/2017 6:04pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been everything the Jets could have hoped for when they signed him over the offseason, registering a 91.5 QB Rating through the first seven games of the campaign. However, he's really just a streaming option for most leagues, and a solid QB2 option in formats that employ two quarterbacks.
Posted: 10/25/2017 2:58pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has really held his own in what has been a relatively lackluster Jets offense. New York will likely be forced to pass early and often versus the Atlanta Falcons this weekend, making McCown a reasonable starting option considering all the bye weeks.
Posted: 10/22/2017 6:28pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown isn't someone to rely upon as a regular in most fantasy formats, but he isn't a terrible streaming option when you need a bye-week replacement. The Jets host the Falcons in Week 8.
Posted: 10/15/2017 1:58pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has thrown for four touchdowns and three interceptions over the last two games and has played well this season. He will be facing the Miami Dolphins in Week 7 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues.
Posted: 10/13/2017 3:45pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a decent starting quarterback for the Jets this season and can have some success against the New England Patriots this week. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues or a bye week replacement.
Posted: 10/12/2017 1:03pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a solid starter for the Jets this season but has thrown for over 200 yards in only two games this season. McCown could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues because the New England Patriots pass defense has struggled during the early part of the season.
Posted: 10/11/2017 3:10pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown appears to be in line to start Week 6 against the New England Patriots. His season high in passing yardage is just 249, he has managed five touchdown strikes and just two interceptions over his past four games. He could have a surprising day against a poor Patriots defense, so consider him as a streaming option if you're desperate due to bye weeks. He also makes for a nice low-priced DFS target.
Posted: 10/8/2017 12:34pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown continues to be a solid starter for the Jets and has five touchdowns in the last four games. He will be facing the New England Patriots next week, but owners probably have better options to use in their lineup.
Posted: 10/5/2017 12:27pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a decent quarterback for the Jets this season but has only thrown for three touchdowns in four games this season. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid McCown even though he has a favorable matchup.
Posted: 10/4/2017 4:35pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has done a decent job as the Jets starting quarterback but has only thrown three touchdowns in four games. He will have a favorable matchup this week but probably should only be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 10/1/2017 2:39pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has been a decent quarterback for the Jets this season but has not thrown for at least 250 yards in any game. He will be facing the Cleveland Browns next week but would only be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues.
Posted: 9/29/2017 6:31pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown hasn't been terrible, but he is barely averaging 200 passing yards per game. Facing a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that has been putting the heat on opposing quarterbacks this season, McCown doesn't need to be on your radar.
Posted: 9/28/2017 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown has posted decent numbers over the last two games and has three touchdowns and zero interceptions during that span. He likely will remain the Jets starting quarterback for the foreseeable future but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/24/2017 2:15pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 9/10/2017 3:25pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/31/2017 7:23pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/28/2017 1:14pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/21/2017 4:00pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/17/2017 3:16pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 7/29/2017 12:25pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 6/18/2017 5:13pm ET
Huddle Up: With a young, unproven group of receivers, don't expect much fantasy value from whoever ends up under center for the Jets this season.
Posted: 6/15/2017 4:18pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown would be the most beneficial from a fantasy standpoint. Even if Bowles doesn't call McCown the favorite, McCown's experience and leadership probably give him an edge. Even so, McCown has topped 2,500 yards only once in his 14-year career and has never thrown more than 13 touchdowns in a season. He can be avoided.
Posted: 6/4/2017 1:12pm ET
Huddle Up: McCown should win the starting job during training camp and will have some decent weapons to work with in the passing game. McCown has had some success during his career but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Hackenberg probably will see playing time if the Jets are eliminated from playoff contention but does not have much fantasy value.
Posted: 5/30/2017 9:43am ET
Huddle Up: This is not a surprising development, as McCown has been around the block a few times, while Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are projects who may or may not have much of an NFL future. McCown has a poor track record of staying healthy, however, so either Patty and/or Hackenberg will probably make some starts in 2017 as the Jets hope to remain in position to select their long-term answer at the position in the 2018 draft.
Posted: 5/27/2017 9:43am ET
Huddle Up: McCown has not shown much durability throughout his long career, so it might not matter much anyway. In reality, there's a decent chance all three players may log starts in 2017. Don't be surprised if Hackenberg ends up getting the most, if only so the Jets can see what they have in him before investing what figures to be a top-five pick into another college signal-caller. None of the three warrant a fantasy draft pick this summer.
