New Orleans Saints QB Luke McCown completed 31 of 38 passes for 310 yards and an interception in a 27-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: McCown ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) didn't look bad for someone who hasn't thrown a pass in the NFL for a few years, but he doesn't need to be considered as a starting option at FantasyScore either.

New Orleans Saints QB Luke McCown would likely be the starting quarterback in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers if QB Drew Brees (shoulder) can't play. Rookie QB Garrett Grayson likely needs more time to develop, as he mostly worked as the fourth-string quarterback in the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: If Brees doesn't suit up, there's no reason why McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) would be an attractive sleeper pick on FantasyScore against a solid Panthers defense. You'd also have to downgrade the rest of New Orleans' offensive weapons significantly if McCown is leading the offense.
