Presenting a plan for Andrew Luck's Fantasy owners
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

If you drafted Andrew Luck in the first round, you pretty much have to consider him a sunk cost at this point. We're essentially one-third of the way through the Fantasy season, and he has 51 Fantasy points; he had 151 last season at the same point, including two games with at least 35.

That doesn't mean you have to give up on your season, of course. Even if you are 0-4 and starting Josh McCown this week, there's still time to turn things around. Just think, someone in your league probably drafted C.J. Anderson in the first round; pity them, not yourself.

So, what should you do with Luck if you did draft him? Probably nothing right now. Sorry. That's not exactly the most helpful information ever, but trying to trade him after his second missed game in a row -- coming off one of the worst three-game stretches of his career -- is the definition of "selling low." You're going to get a No. 3 RB and a backup WR, if that, for him right now, and that doesn't help your team.

Try a little patience. I'm not saying you need to hang on to Luck forever, but a panic trade is the wrong way to go about things here. You can't trade him this week anyways, because of the early lineup lock, and that might be a blessing in disguise.

Luck has extra time to prepare for Week 6, and he's got a couple of chances to boost his value then. The New England Patriots are a tough matchup, but he has a chance to put up big numbers in a game he will probably be chasing points for. He had 23 Fantasy points against the Patriots last season's regular season matchup, and the Patriots have given up solid Fantasy days to the likes of Tyrod Taylor and Blake Bortles , in addition to Ben Roethlisberger .

That's a tougher matchup because the Patriots can generate pass rush, and the Indianapolis Colts have obviously struggled to protect Luck. However, if he is healthy for Week 6 and puts up a solid performance, you might want to hold on to him for one more week, with a matchup against the New Orleans Saints on the way. Two more weeks might be enough to boost Luck's value to the point where someone will be willing to believe in him; that's when you trade him.

Luck has a nice two-week soft spot in the schedule, and you want to take advantage of that, because he has the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos in Weeks 7 and 8, before a bye. If you can move him after a big game against the Saints, you are probably maximizing your value with Luck, because it's hard to see him truly living up to expectations at this point.

The shoulder injury that has already caused him to miss two weeks seems like a situation that has a chance to get a lot worse if he gets hit the wrong way -- and behind this offensive line, that could happen a lot. No matter what you do with Luck, adding a backup you feel confident in trusting is imperative, because whether you trade him or not it seems fair to say he is no longer the must-start, every-week option you expected coming into the season.

Browns QB Josh McCown has big game in Week 4 loss to Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown (hand) completed 32 of 41 passes for 356 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 30-27 loss at San Diego Toreros . He did lose a fumble at one point.

McCown moved the ball well for most of the game, although the Browns' offense bogged down a few times on the San Diego Chargers ' side of the field, which led to four field goals by Travis Coons . He was clutch late, completing 4-of-4 passes for 45 yards on a game-tying drive that culminated in a short touchdown pass to TE Gary Barnidge at 2:09 of the final period. Unfortunately, McCown left too much time for Philip Rivers , who engineered his own clutch drive that ended with the game-winning field goal.

In any event, it was probably one of McCown's best games as a pro, and he's certainly silenced most of the critics that are calling for Johnny Manziel to start at QB. The veteran QB will face a suspect Baltimore Ravens ' secondary in Week 5.

Report: Browns QB Josh McCown (hand) won't miss practice time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Although Browns quarterback Josh McCown's right hand was banged up following Sunday's loss to the Raiders, he won't miss any practice time, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Though the report relays McCown was spotted in the locker room Monday with "a swollen right hand, a gash on the top of it and a wrapped ring finger," the quarterback's Week 4 status does not appear to be in any danger at this stage.

X-rays on hand come back negative for Browns QB Josh McCown
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

X-rays on Browns quarterback Josh McCown's right hand came back negative after Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Raiders, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. 

McCown jammed a finger during the preseason but didn't end up missing any practice time. Sunday's injury is likely unrelated, and while it doesn't sound too serious, he may have some swelling during the week.

McCown struggled in the first half of Sunday's game, but his starting job probably isn't in any immediate danger, as he made a contest of it after halftime, ultimately finishing with 341 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Browns QB Josh McCown passes for 341 yards in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Browns quarterback Josh McCown completed 28 of 49 passes for 341 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's loss to Oakland. 

McCown was asked to sling the rock often with the Browns trailing all game, and came out with a nice looking stat line even if it wasn't enough to get his team the win.

He immediately reclaimed the starting quarterback role from Johnny Manziel after returning from a concussion, and nothing about his game today would suggest McCown is in any danger of losing his job to Manziel any time soon.
