Jets | NYJ open to Josh McCown return

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 09:24:11 -0800

New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan is open to bringing back impending free-agent QB Josh McCown. "I still think there's good football left in Josh... Based on what Josh has done, I'd have no problem bringing him back," Maccagnan said.

Fantasy Tip: McCown was a good fit in John Morton's quick-hitting offense in 2017, so a reunion makes a ton of sense considering Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are not the future at the position in New York. Ideally, the Jets find a way to land a blue-chip signal-caller in this year's draft that McCown can hand over the job to midway through the 2018 season or no later than 2019.

Jets | Josh McCown could return

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 15:07:30 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown unsure of future

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 20:14:20 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:55:19 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) was plaed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown done for season

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 12:10:09 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) is done for the season and will have surgery to fix his broken left hand, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown suffers broken hand

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 16:34:08 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Josh McCown (hand) suffered a broken left hand in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos, head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Sunday, Dec. 10. The team isn't sure if this ends his season.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown taken to locker room

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:56:02 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back) was taken to the locker room in the third quarter of the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos. QB Bryce Petty replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown to start final four games

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 23:10:01 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown will remain the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, barring injury, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown accounts for three touchdowns

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:37:01 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 26-for-36 for 331 yards and one touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13. He also rushed for 19 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: 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.
