Jets | Josh McCown to enter camp as starter

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 11:48:22 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown to be starter

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 14:15:48 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown back with Jets

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 13:44:12 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | One more year for Josh McCown?

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 20:47:34 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown hopes to return to Jets

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 15:08:48 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown close to 100 percent

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 17:56:08 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown intends to play in 2018

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:26:28 -0800

New York Jets impending free-agent QB Josh McCown is leaning toward playing in 2018 and is hopeful he can do so with the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Despite turning 38 before the season began, McCown set career highs in completion percentage (67.3), passing yards (2,926), passing touchdowns (18) and rushing touchdowns (five). Of course, New York parted ways with the offensive coordinator that helped make his season possible, stacking the odds against McCown being able to repeat his success. The Jets also figure to be drafting a quarterback in the first round this spring, meaning McCown could be replaced at any point during the season.

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.
