Jets' Josh McCown: Efficient with limited work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown completed 17 of 25 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns and added 31 yards on four carries in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders.

The Jets stayed within striking distance until early in the fourth quarter when Jalen Richard ripped off a 58-yard touchdown run and McCown lost a fumble on the ensuing snap. The 38-year-old quarterback otherwise turned in a competent performance, albeit with 57 passing yards and one of the two touchdowns coming on a lengthy garbage-time drive. The Jets opted for a balanced offensive approach while trying to keep pace with the Raiders, after attempting 39 passes and only 15 rushes in a 21-12 loss to Buffalo the previous week. McCown should see a bit more volume Week 3 against Miami in the Jets' first home game of the year. He's at least doing enough to keep the starting job for a few more weeks.

Jets' Josh McCown: Unimpressive in Week 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown completed 26 of 39 passes for 187 yards and two interceptions while adding a rushing touchdown in Sunday's season-opening 21-12 loss to Buffalo.

McCown looked more like the the guy who posted a 2-20 record and 29:24 TD:INT ratio in the past three seasons than the quarterback who had a sparkling 13:1 ratio in eight appearances with Chicago in 2013. New York's lack of weapons made life difficult for the 38-year-old veteran, even though he did manage to bring his team within a failed two-point conversion of tying the game late in the third quarter. With Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson serving as his top two receivers, it looks like McCown's in store for a long season.

Jets' Josh McCown: Leads field-goal drive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown completed six of eight passes for 57 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles.

The Jets let McCown play a couple series after using the previous two preseason games to evaluate Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty (knee). Already named as the Week 1 starter, McCown will lead an undermanned Jets offense into Buffalo for the regular-season opener. The Jets presumably will want to take a longer look at Hackenberg and/or Petty before the season ends, barring McCown leading the team to a surprise bid for a playoff spot.

Jets' Josh McCown: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown is expected to start Thursday's preseason contest against the Eagles, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Just days removed from being named the Jets' Week 1 quarterback, McCown will make his preseason debut Thursday, in what amounts to a walkthrough in advance of the regular season. While Matt Forte won't take the field, McCown may have the rest of the top skill-position players at his disposal, which could reveal who starts opposite No. 1 wideout Robby Anderson, for example.

Jets' Josh McCown: Named Week 1 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown will open the regular season as the Jets' starting quarterback.

Per coach Todd Bowles, McCown gives the Jets "the best chance to win right now." While the veteran signal-caller's Week 1 assignment has been settled on, the team's backup pecking order has yet to be solidified. Since entering the league in 2002, McCown has never appeared in all 16 games, so it remains to be seen how long the 38-year-old's latest starting gig lasts. With Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker no longer on the team, and Quincy Enunwa (neck) out for the season, McCown is slated to work with an unproven wideout corps, now headed by Robby Anderson. Given that context, we'd expect the Jets to lean toward a ground game featuring the duo of Bilal Powell and Matt Forte.
