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.

Jets | Josh McCown placed on IR

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:55:19 -0800

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.
