Jets' Josh McCown: Awful in fill-in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown completed 17 of 34 passes for 135 yards and two interceptions while rushing once for four yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bills.

It looks like rookie quarterback Sam Darnold wasn't the problem in New York's offense, which looked completely inept under McCown's veteran leadership. With four straight ugly losses heading into the Week 11 bye, it wouldn't be surprising to see some changes to the coaching staff by the time New York next takes the field. Darnold should be back under center if his foot injury heals during the bye, but McCown would likely start again if Darnold remains out.

Jets' Josh McCown: Announced as Week 10 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Todd Bowles named McCown the Jets' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Bills, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

Sam Darnold was withheld from practice Thursday for the second straight day while battling a strained foot, prompting Bowles to rule him out for the starting nod. That paves the way for McCown to direct the offense for the first time in 2018, though the appointment will likely only be a short-term one, as Bowles reiterated that the struggling Darnold would reclaim the starting role once healthy, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. The 39-year-old McCown was effective while serving as the Jets' primary quarterback in 2017, completing 67 percent of his passes for 7.4 yards per attempt, 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions across 13 appearances. McCown will be a worthy option this week in leagues that include two quarterbacks in lineups and could merit consideration in deeper one-QB leagues as well.

Jets' Josh McCown: Likely to start Sunday against Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown is expected to fill in for the injured Sam Darnold (foot) as the Jets' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Bills, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The Jets haven't officially ruled Darnold out, but all signs point in that direction after he was held out of practice Wednesday while sporting a walking boot on his right foot. With a Week 11 bye coming up, it makes sense for the team to take a cautious approach with the rookie No. 3 overall pick and give McCown at least one start. Given how poorly Darnold has been playing of late, the 39-year-old's presence under center probably improves the fantasy outlook for all of the Jets' pass catchers.

Jets' Josh McCown: Set to back up Darnold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown will open the season as Sam Darnold's backup.

This was pretty much assumed since the Jets traded Teddy Bridgewater to the Saints, but the assignment was confirmed Monday, when the Jets officially declared Darnold their starting QB to begin the coming season.

Jets' Josh McCown: Plays four drives in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown completed three of eight passes for 26 yards during Thursday's 10-9 loss to Philadelphia in the preseason finale.

McCown will serve as the backup to Sam Darnold with Teddy Bridgewater now in New Orleans, so the Jets opted to give the veteran some valuable reps here. While McCown failed to get much going during his four drives in this game, his success as the starter last season suggests he should be able to hold his own if called upon this season.
