Browns | Josh McCown to miss final roster?

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 11:49:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown may not make the 53-man roster, according to ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Tip: McCown could be released if the Browns do not trade him. Robert Griffin III is expected to start in Cleveland, so McCown can continue to be avoided in fantasy drafts.

Browns | Cleveland starter not close to official

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 16:42:39 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown and Cody Kessler will be part of an open competition in training camp, according to head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson said he is not even close to naming a starting quarterback at the close of minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin still figures to be the favorite to start, but anything can happen between now and late August. As has been said before, though, none of Cleveland's quarterbacks are QB1 material.

Browns | Josh McCown performing well

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:20:35 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has performed well during organized team activities this week and appears to have a good grasp on the new offense.

Fantasy Tip: Robert Griffin III appears to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, but McCown may receive the chance to compete for the job during training camp. McCown has had some success in the past but probably would be a low-end No. 2 option in deeper leagues if he starts.

Browns | Josh McCown could still be kept

Sat, 14 May 2016 12:32:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown could still stay with the Browns if he does not win the starting quarterback position, according to director of football operations Sashi Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Robert Griffin III is the favorite to start for Cleveland, with McCown and Cody Kessler vying for the backup spot. Griffin has more fantasy upside, but he should not be viewed as a QB1 candidate, assuming he does win the starting job.

Browns | Josh McCown staying with Browns?

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:54:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown seems to have a better chance of staying in Cleveland after Cleveland traded down from their No. 2 overall pick. "I don't know what's going to happen," McCown said. "I'm not going to worry about that. I'm just going to focus on what I've got to do today and go and work hard."

Fantasy Tip: That's the mentality of a veteran quarterback, albeit a veteran quarterback who will play a backup role this season behind Robert Griffin III. McCown could still be traded, of course, if the Browns draft Paxton Lynch with their No. 8 overall pick, or someone else later in the draft. He's not on the fantasy radar as of now.

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 17:21:01 -0700

Broncos | Josh McCown could land in Denver

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 10:16:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown could be an option for the Denver Broncos if the Broncos can't acquire San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: McCown looked good early last season and would have a lot to work with in Denver. He's pretty limited from a fantasy perspective, though, and he'd be a backup regardless.

Browns | Josh McCown shows up for workouts

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 09:46:47 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown showed up for the start of offseason workouts with Cleveland Monday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise, as McCown stated he would like to compete with Robert Griffin III and possibly an early round draft pick if he remains with the team. The problem is McCown is unlikely to remain with the Browns, and he could be an option for the Denver Broncos or New York Jets. Wherever he lands, he's nothing more than a fantasy backup if he wins a starting job.

Browns | Josh McCown wants to compete

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 10:30:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown, who is expected to be released or traded, said he would like to remain with the Browns and compete with QB Robert Griffin III. McCown also said he's open to sitting behind Griffin and helping him if that's what the organization chooses. "The Browns' quarterback woes have been well-documented. For us to put a good quarterback on the field who can be productive and help our team win, that's our ultimate goal," McCown said. "We'll see how it plays out, but I look forward to working with him."

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect McCown to be with Cleveland by the time training camps begin. He's a veteran journeyman that has had his moments in the NFL, but he's not ideal starting material. He could win a starting job if he's traded elsewhere, but even then he would be nothing more than a fantasy backup.

49ers | Josh McCown an option for Niners

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 11:25:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is an option for the San Francisco 49ers if they part ways with QB Colin Kaepernick. 49ers quarterbacks coach Kevin O'Connell, who worked with McCown in Cleveland, would like to work with him again.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is at most a second quarterback in two-QB leagues.
