Player Outlook

A.J. McCarron is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback in Houston this season as the backup to Deshaun Watson. McCarron spent 2018 in Oakland as the backup to Derek Carr and only appeared in two games, with no starts. McCarron would only have Fantasy relevance if Watson got hurt, and he should not be drafted in most leagues.

  • Texans' AJ McCarron: Inks deal with Texans
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCarron agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCarron, a former fifth-round pick, spent his first four seasons with the Bengals before backing up Derek Carr in Oakland last season. He will now be the No. 2 quarterback behind Deshaun Watson in Houston. The 27-year-old has only started three games in his career, all of which came in 2015.

  • Raiders' AJ McCarron: Receives support from GM
    By RotoWire Staff

    General manager Mike Mayock expressed a desire for McCarron to remain with the Raiders in 2019, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. "I think [coach] Jon [Gruden] and I both believe that the backup quarterback is one snap away from playing. It's important to have someone like McCarron ready to go," Mayock said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine. Oakland raised eyebrows around the league last offseason by shipping a fifth-round pick to Buffalo in exchange for McCarron. The 2014 fifth-round pick ultimately logged just 12 snaps and threw three passes for the Raiders in 2018. He'll be owed a $3 million roster bonus if he remains on the Raiders' roster March 15, with the majority of his contract then becoming guaranteed on the 17th.

  • McCarron was traded to the Raiders from the Bills on Saturday for a fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Apparently displeased with his backup quarterback situation, Raiders coach Jon Gruden is bringing in a replacement for EJ Manuel and Connor Cook. It isn't entirely clear that McCarron will be an upgrade, given that he completed just 46 percent of his passes for 5.7 yards per attempt with the Bills this preseason.

  • Bills' AJ McCarron: Stays in Buffalo
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCarron will not be part of the Bills' roster cuts Saturday, John Wawrow of the Associated Press reports. We'll never know if McCarron saved his job with a fantastic comeback to rescue what began as a horrible start Thursday against the Bears. The bigger news to come out of Buffalo will be what the 1-2-3 pecking order is between McCarron, Nathan Peterman and franchise QB Josh Allen, an order that has seemingly flipped around all summer. The team has only a few more days, if that, to publicly settle the issue.

  • Bills' AJ McCarron: Worth keeping around?
    By RotoWire Staff

    Coach Sean McDermott said late Thursday that McCarron is "absolutely in the race" and the fact that the quarterback played the entire final preseason game is not a reflection of McCarron's roster status, The Buffalo News reports. McCarron was awful for much of the game Thursday, but he did rally the team to victory following 20-0 and 27-3 deficits, albeit against Chicago's third and fourth stringers. While it seems more likely Nathan Peterman or rookie Josh Allen will get the Week 1 start after both were rested Thursday, it might behoove the Bills to keep three quarterbacks around, seeing as they haven't had much of an idea as to which one is worthy of the starting job going back several months.
