Jets | Josh McCown working with starters

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 12:25:12 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown is receiving the first snaps with the starting offense during practice Saturday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown losing grip on starting gig?

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 17:13:09 -0700

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg made some strides during minicamp, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, and Costello believes Hackenberg could beat out QB Josh McCown to be the Week 1 starter.

Fantasy Tip: With a young, unproven group of receivers, don't expect much fantasy value from whoever ends up under center for the Jets this season.

Jets | Christian Hackenberg making a move?

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 12:39:20 -0700

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg performed a "little better than expected" in minicamp, and QB Josh McCown does not have an "insurmountable lead" over him in the race to start Week 1. QB Bryce Petty is running third on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: As ESPN's Rich Cimini suggests, this position and the Jets' offense is general will likely be a disaster for fantasy purposes. All three quarterbacks can be ignored in drafts this summer.

Jets | No favorite among Jets quarterbacks

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 16:18:20 -0700

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty are in a genuine quarterback competition, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said so far there is no frontrunner for the starting position and that the quarterback battle will be sorted out during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Christian Hackenberg to start sooner than later?

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 23:40:41 -0700

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg will likely take over from QB Josh McCown sometime early in the 2017 season, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini, who says that Hackenberg will start "at least 10 games" in the upcoming season.

Fantasy Tip: It's painfully obvious the Jets are throwing in the towel on 2017, and while Todd Bowles likes McCown to help the other skill players transition to a West Coast offense, there's no reason for the veteran to remain under center long term as the team needs to get a read on what they have (or don't have) with Hackenberg. As a rookie, Hackenberg clearly wasn't ready, but it sounds like management wants to get an extended look at last year's second-round pick. It shouldn't matter much for fantasy owners as the Jets QB situation is a wasteland.

Jets | Josh McCown has advantage in QB competition

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 13:12:28 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown has an advantage over QBs Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty in the competition for the starting quarterback job because he is familiar with the West Coast offense, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles also said he expects Hackenberg to play at some point.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown 'best QB' at OTAs

Tue, 30 May 2017 09:43:55 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown has been "far and away" best quarterback at OTAs, according to NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Josh McCown expected to be Week 1 starter

Sat, 27 May 2017 09:43:44 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown is the "heavy favorite" to be named the starting quarterback even though the team plans on having an open competition, giving McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg an equal amount of practice reps, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Jets | Equal opportunity for Jets' quarterbacks

Tue, 23 May 2017 12:56:40 -0700

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg will be given equal first-team repetitions during organized team activities, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is by far the most experienced quarterback in this group. He has the most fantasy upside, too. The veteran isn't close to QB1 territory, but he may be a valuable bye-week replacement if the matchup is right.
