Huddle Up: McCarron fell behind Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen, and this may have been an audition to drum up some trade value. If so, completing 38.2 percent of your passes won't help. He accounted for four touchdowns and engineered a late comeback, though, so maybe that piqued somebody's interest. Either way, his chance to be fantasy relevant this year seems gone.

Huddle Up: McCarron probably will miss the third preseason game but may have the chance to play in the final preseason game. He is still competing for the starting job, but owners in all leagues can avoid McCarron even if he wins the job.

Huddle Up: McCarron may still have a chance to win the starting job but likely will be limited at practice for the foreseeable future. He would be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

Huddle Up: He has a chance to open the season as the starter after the revelation that his collarbone isn't actually broken. His upside is pretty limited as a QB2.

Huddle Up: McCarron isn't as seriously hurt as we thought, but Allen will still start this week. The Bills seemingly like what they've seen from Allen more than what they've seen from a healthy McCarron. The bottom line, though, is to not draft any Buffalo quarterbacks as your starter.
Posted: 8/17/2018 7:46pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like Buffalo will be playing Josh Allen, ready or not. It is difficult to envision the Bills bypassing their first-round quarterback in favor of Nathan Peterman. Allen is a QB3 in the deepest of 2018 formats.

Huddle Up: McCarron is fighting to earn the starting job, but any type of serious injury could throw the door wide open for Josh Allen to grab the spot. No matter who is under center for Buffalo this year, they don't need to be owned in redraft leagues.
Posted: 8/17/2018 3:46pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron is still competing with Nathan Peterman for the starting job, so it will help him if he plays well with the starting offense. Owners probably should avoid whoever wins the starting job because there will be better quarterback options available.
Posted: 8/13/2018 9:33am ET
Huddle Up: McCarron and Peterman will continue to compete for the starting job during preseason, so owners can monitor the situation. Neither player has had a lot of success in the NFL and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/12/2018 3:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if either quarterback with miss significant time because of their injury. McCarron and Peterman will continue to compete for the job during training camp, but the winner would be no better than a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 8/7/2018 12:45pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron and Peterman have both receive practice time with the starting offense and will continue to compete for the starting job during the preseason. Owners in most leagues should consider the winner of the job as a low-end No. 2 quarterback.
Posted: 8/4/2018 7:13pm ET
Huddle Up: It's another indication that the starting gig is still up for grabs, but neither players needs to be owned in redraft leagues no matter who ends up starting.
Posted: 8/2/2018 6:54am ET
Huddle Up: McCarron may have taken the lead over Nathan Peterman in the battle for the starting position. Both are only backups in fantasy or matchup plays.
Posted: 7/28/2018 7:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if McCarron ends up securing the starting gig for Week 1, he's a low-end QB2, at best, and he has little long-term value with Josh Allen waiting in the wings.
Posted: 7/27/2018 1:09pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron and Peterman will continue to compete for the starting job, and the winner likely will be the better performer during the preseason. Neither quarterback is a great fantasy option and likely would only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 7/22/2018 7:46pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron has a chance to open the year as the starter, but with average weapons in the passing game and Josh Allen waiting in the wings, McCarron is no more than a low-end QB2 with a limited shelf life.
Posted: 4/4/2018 8:55pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron is the presumed favorite, especially after Peterman looked like a disaster in his one and only start as a rookie last season, not even lasting the full game due to ineffectiveness. McCarron certainly has the higher ceiling but no matter who emerges, they'll only be useful in deep two-quarterback formats out of the gate, if even that.
Posted: 3/14/2018 8:35pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron is probably going to be the starter in Buffalo at the onset of campaign, but due to the club's lack of depth in their supporting cast, he's really just an option for two-quarterback formats. The former Bengal flashed some success when he got the chance to start for a time during the 2015 campaign, but he's not likely to duplicate that in his current situation.
Posted: 3/14/2018 4:25pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron will be the veteran bridge quarterback and mentor to a young rookie the team is expected to bring in. For fantasy purposes, he has low-end QB2 at this point.
Posted: 3/5/2018 10:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Of course, much was made of the trade-deadline-day debacle this past season that saw the Browns not finalize their deal in time to acquire McCarron from the Bengals. Fortunately for Cleveland, they have plenty more time in this instance to cement something, so it appears they will indeed land the Cincinnati backup, along with a rookie to apparently wait in the wings. As a result, McCarron should be relied upon as a QB2 out of the gate in two-quarterback formats if he indeed signs with the Browns.
Posted: 2/18/2018 7:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Being a game manager might not translate to fantasy stardom, but McCarron could be a serviceable fantasy backup if he lands a starting gig for 2018.
Posted: 2/18/2018 6:41pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron is an unknown commodity, but if he can land a starting gig for 2018, he will be worth a look as a low-end QB2.
Posted: 2/18/2018 9:36am ET
Huddle Up: Several teams will be looking for starting quarterbacks this offseason, so McCarron should have several options available. He has seen limited playing time since entering the league and probably would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is a starter.
Posted: 2/15/2018 5:11pm ET
Huddle Up: The Browns tried to trade for McCarron during the season and are still looking for a starting quarterback. McCarron likely would be the starting quarterback if he signs with the Browns but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 2/15/2018 2:04pm ET
Huddle Up: McCarron should receive interest from several teams looking for a starting quarterback in free agency. He has seen limited success in the NFL but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 2/11/2018 7:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Other than sporadic glimpses, McCarron is an unknown commodity. He would be a QB2 candidate if he ends up starting somewhere in 2018.
Posted: 12/10/2017 7:10am ET
Huddle Up: McCarron has a chance to become a starting quarterback next season if he is declared an unrestricted free agent because several teams will be looking for a quarterback. He should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues next year if he wins a starting job.
Posted: 11/4/2017 8:49pm ET
Huddle Up: If McCarron is ruled an unrestricted free agent, he should be able to sign somewhere as a starter and enter the 2018 season as a QB2 candidate.
