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.

Jets | Another full practice for Josh McCown

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 15:20:47 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (wrist) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is coming off one of his best efforts of 2017, as he surpassed 300 yards for the second time this season. It was also his second three-touchdown performance as well, and he's tossed just one pick in the last four weeks. As a result, the veteran journeyman will be on the streaming radar for quarterback-desperate owners seeking a low-end QB1 this weekend.

Jets | Josh McCown practices in full

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 14:54:52 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (wrist) was able to participate in a full practice session on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: McCown received a vote of confidence from his coach Todd Bowles earlier this week, and he'll be the guy under center in New York for the remainder of the season. How strange is it that the Jets have more stability at the quarterback position right now than their stadium counterparts, the Giants?

Jets | Josh McCown in until lights go out

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 06:38:06 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown will continue to be the starter while the Jets are mathematically alive in the playoff hunt, according to multiple team sources.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is quietly having a really good season. He has completed 67.3 percent of his passes, 2,549 yards with 17 touchdowns and eight picks. He has thrown for at least two touchdowns six times this season. He's a matchup play in fantasy, but the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 might not be the one to pick.

Jets | Josh McCown tosses three TDs

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 18:48:36 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown completed 19 of his 36 passes for 307 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has at least one touchdown pass in each of his past seven outings, and he has two or more TD passes in five of those contests with two rushing touchdowns during the span. He has emerged as a decent QB2 in most fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers. The Jets host the skidding Chiefs in Week 13.

Jets | Josh McCown still at the helm

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 06:08:51 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown will remain the starting quarterback when the team returns from its Week 11 bye, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: With bye weeks nearly in the rearview mirror, McCown's roster viability is pretty marginal in fantasy.

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 12:38:51 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 23-for-39 for 262 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: McCown continues to be a solid starting quarterback for the Jets and has seven touchdowns and two interceptions in his last three games. He will be facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 12 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Jets | Josh McCown could remain in NY in 2018

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 18:30:55 -0800

New York Jets QB Josh McCown could return to the team next season, as suggested by general manager Mike Maccagnan.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question that McCown has exceeded any and all expectations in his first year with the Jets, especially since he was merely supposed to be a bridge quarterback. The 38-year-old has been enjoying a renaissance season, posting a 96.1 QB Rating, which would be the second-highest of his career if it holds, but owners shouldn't invest too much into the longtime journeyman. Sooner than later, it seems likely McCown will begin to regress towards his norm.

Jets | Josh McCown efficient in victory

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 22:12:35 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown attempted 20 passes, completing 14 of them for 140 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 9 win over the Buffalo Bills. McCown added 13 yards and a touchdown as a runner.

Fantasy Tip: McCown was in full game manager mode Thursday night, throwing for a season-low 140 yards in the process. He did account for multiple TDs for the fifth straight game, though, so he at least deserves a roster spot as a QB2.

Jets | Josh McCown throws for 257 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:46:26 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 26-for-33 for 257 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has thrown for at least two touchdowns in each of the last four games and has been a solid starting quarterback for the Jets this season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense next week and probably should be kept on the bench.

Jets | Josh McCown fully practices

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 14:39:00 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has been an under-the-radar fantasy quarterback in 2017. The Jets have been forced to pass early and often frequently and McCown has held his own. In fact, he currently sits at the QB10 spot through seven weeks. Don't be afraid to plug him into your starting lineup, especially if byes and/or injuries abound at the position.

Jets | Josh McCown already has franchise history

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 18:04:03 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown is the second quarterback in franchise history, joining retired QB Al Dorow, to have at least three passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown in the same game, pulling off this feat in Week 7 on Sunday, Oct. 22, against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has been everything the Jets could have hoped for when they signed him over the offseason, registering a 91.5 QB Rating through the first seven games of the campaign. However, he's really just a streaming option for most leagues, and a solid QB2 option in formats that employ two quarterbacks.

Jets | Josh McCown has full practice

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 14:58:47 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (back) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has really held his own in what has been a relatively lackluster Jets offense. New York will likely be forced to pass early and often versus the Atlanta Falcons this weekend, making McCown a reasonable starting option considering all the bye weeks.

Jets | Josh McCown tosses three TDs

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 18:28:18 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown completed 17 of his 27 pass attempts for 209 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins. He also ran for a 1-yard touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: McCown isn't someone to rely upon as a regular in most fantasy formats, but he isn't a terrible streaming option when you need a bye-week replacement. The Jets host the Falcons in Week 8.

New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 31-for-47 for 354 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has thrown for four touchdowns and three interceptions over the last two games and has played well this season. He will be facing the Miami Dolphins in Week 7 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has been a decent starting quarterback for the Jets this season and can have some success against the New England Patriots this week. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues or a bye week replacement.

Jets | Josh McCown practices

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 13:03:13 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has been a solid starter for the Jets this season but has thrown for over 200 yards in only two games this season. McCown could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues because the New England Patriots pass defense has struggled during the early part of the season.

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 15:10:23 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (shoulder) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Fantasy Tip: McCown appears to be in line to start Week 6 against the New England Patriots. His season high in passing yardage is just 249, he has managed five touchdown strikes and just two interceptions over his past four games. He could have a surprising day against a poor Patriots defense, so consider him as a streaming option if you're desperate due to bye weeks. He also makes for a nice low-priced DFS target.

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 14:39:46 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown went 22-for-31 for 224 yards and one interception against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has been a decent quarterback for the Jets this season but has not thrown for at least 250 yards in any game. He will be facing the Cleveland Browns next week but would only be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues.

New York Jets QB Josh McCown (ribs) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and he is not listed on the Week 4 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: McCown hasn't been terrible, but he is barely averaging 200 passing yards per game. Facing a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that has been putting the heat on opposing quarterbacks this season, McCown doesn't need to be on your radar.

Jets | Josh McCown turns in solid Week 3 effort

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:15:21 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown completed 18 of his 23 passes for 249 yards, including a 69-yard TD pass to WR Robby Anderson, in a 20-6 win Sunday, Sept. 24, against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: It was a strong effort, but McCown is still a risky option who may be best as a flex QB, especially with the surprisingly hot Jacksonville Jaguars on tap for Week 4. If he can put a dent in Jacksonville's efforts, then McCown may rise up the charts a bit.

Jets | Josh McCown picked off three times

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:25:30 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown threw three interceptions, one on a two-point conversion, and he finished 26-for-37 for 189 yards in a 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Can you say mess? The Jets' QB situation is muddy at best, and this means avoid McCown like the plague. A previous tip suggested McCown would be best as a bye-week replacement, but games like Sunday make that even shaky.

Jets | Josh McCown averts crisis, plays decent

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:23:20 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown had to leave the game briefly in the final preseason game Thursday, August 31, against the Philadelphia Eagles when he was hit in the midsection by LB Joe Walker. Despite needing medical help on the field, McCown was able to walk off under his own power and returned one play later. Overall for the evening, he was 6-of-8 for 57 yards.

Fantasy Tip: McCown had himself a fine preseason, ultimately finishing 9-of-12 for 129 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. It's no surprise that he'll be under center for the Jets in Week 1, but simply put, he shouldn't be under center for any fantasy teams whatsoever in the opening week. He's nothing more than a bye-week replacement, and even then, it's a stretch to deploy him considering the Jets' woeful lack of depth around him.

Jets | Josh McCown named starter

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 13:14:04 -0700

New York Jets QB Josh McCown has been named the Week 1 starting quarterback by head coach Todd Bowles.

Fantasy Tip: Not much of a surprise considering the play by Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty. It was McCown's job to lose and he has experience and leadership on his side. The Jets will have to pass plenty in 2017 in order to keep up with teams, but that doesn't mean McCown is a reliable starting fantasy quarterback. He's merely a bye-week replacement.

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg have been competing for the starting quarterback job during training camp, and head coach Todd Bowles said he will name the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: McCown probably is considered the leading candidate at this point after Hackenberg struggled in the second preseason game. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Jets quarterback no matter who is starting.

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.
