Player Outlook

Josh McCown will return to the Jets as their starting quarterback in 2018, but he could face competition during the season from rookie Sam Darnold or Teddy Bridgewater. McCown played well for the Jets in 2017, which was his first season as their starter. In 12 full games (he broke his left hand in Week 14 and missed the final three outings), McCown had at least 18 Fantasy points in seven of them. He should have a better supporting cast this year with Quincy Enunwa (neck) healthy, as well as the addition of Terrelle Pryor at receiver to go with Robby Anderson. McCown is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues, but he should be a bye-week replacement or streaming option during the year as long as he can keep Darnold on the bench.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: To open camp as starter
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown (hand) will open training camp as the Jets' starting quarterback, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports. While McCown will begin camp as the team's starter, coach Todd Bowles also made sure to note that it remains to be seen what happens at the end of camp. Rookie Sam Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will surely be eyeing an opportunity at the starting job. McCown is the incumbent and has experience on his side, but his two younger counterparts should have more upside in the long run.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Ready for dual role
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown (hand) intends to help with Sam Darnold's development while also competing against the rookie for the starting job, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports. McCown figures to take the first snap with the starting offense when training camp begins, but Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater also figure to get their fair share of opportunities. McCown and Bridgewater probably knew what they were signing up for, as the Jets never bothered to hide their intention of drafting a quarterback in the first round. McCown likely has made a full recovery from the broken left hand that brought his 2017 campaign to an early end.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Should enter camp as starter
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown (hand) will enter training camp as the starting quarterback, but Jets coach Todd Bowles suggested the 38-year-old will need to fend off competition, Calvin Watkins of Newsday reports. "Josh will go into it as the starter, and by the end of training camp, we'll see who the starter is," Bowles said. In addition to re-signing McCown, the Jets added Teddy Bridgewater and traded up for the No. 3 pick in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft. Even if Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are non-factors, the team could be headed for a three-way camp battle to determine the Week 1 starter. There doesn't seem to be much concern regarding the broken left hand that ended McCown's 2017 campaign, as the Jets signed him to a one-year, $10 million contract that includes a $5 million signing bonus, per Watkins. Bridgewater's one-year, $6 million deal contains only $500,000 guaranteed, per Daryl Slater of NJ.com. McCown will turn 39 in July, but he's coming off the best season of his career in terms of completion percentage (67.3), passing yards (2,926), passing touchdowns (18) and rushing touchdowns (five). The Jets lost Austin Seferian-Jenkins to the Jaguars in free agency, but they added Isaiah Crowell, Terrelle Pryor (ankle) and Clive Walford, and they hope to get Qunicy Enunwa back from a major neck injury. The offensive line still appears problematic.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Re-ups in New York
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Jets re-signed McCown (hand) on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Prior to sustaining a broken left hand Week 14, McCown provided a steady hand under center for the Jets, averaging 240 yards per game and recording 18 touchdowns versus eight interceptions over the first 12 contests of the 2017 campaign. With another one-year contract in his back pocket, the 38-year-old will continue to serve as a bridge quarterback to Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg or whoever the Jets select in the upcoming draft.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Nearing 100 percent
    By RotoWire Staff

    The hand injury that ended McCown's 2017 season is "healing up," and the veteran QB indicated that he is just a "few weeks away" from being 100 percent, NJ.com reports. The 38-year-old signal caller is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he's leaning toward playing again in 2018, and if so would prefer to return to the Jets. Per the report, GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles have both said they'd like McCown back next season, and a reunion makes sense, given that the team seems likely to draft its QB-of-the-future in April. In such a scenario, McCown would be an ideal mentor/bridge starter for the team.
