Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Bradford is no lock to hold his job through the pre-season and we know he is as injury prone as they come, but if he does end up starting, Bradford offers much more than the general public will remember. He is by no means a QB1 or even close, but he does have the best QB-rating over his past 16 starts than anyone in the NFL.McCown is not starting Week 1 so he has virtually no value even in two QB leagues at this point.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Bradford has boasted a 68.6 completion % over the past three seasons, so he could deliver sneaky value in two-QB leagues. Yet he has not played 16 games in 2012, and Josh Rosen is waiting for his turn. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
We'll have to keep an eye on the quarterback competition in Arizona, but if Rosen can look competent, he probably has the edge to start.McCown will stay with the Jets this season and will likely start as long as Sam Darnold isn't ready. McCown had a nice fantasy season last year and will likely have value in spot starts this season, but Darnold is waiting in the wings and could even win the job from Week 1 on.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Major injury concern or he'd be top-15 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
In theory, Bradford could be a steal. He does have Josh Rosen breathing down his neck and his knees could give at any moment, thoughMcCown has always been better than people give him credit for and he's even a solid fantasy producer, but he's pushing 40 and one hit away from the sidelines
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After being given $20 million despite not having a clean bill of health, Bradford seemed like he was a lock to start for the Cardinals this year. After they landed Josh Rosen in the first-round, things are a bit cloudier, as he was widely considered as the most pro-ready quarterback in the class. By selecting Bradford (even in 2QB leagues), you're playing with fire. It appeared that McCown was going to be handed the starting job for at least the first few weeks, but there's noise coming out of Jets camp that Teddy Bridgewater looks really good. With that being the case, it's hard to invest any pick in McCown, because we know that Sam Darnold will be given the keys to the offense before long.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Bradford is one of the most accurate passers in the game and could be a great fit with Larry Fitzgerald, but he simply can't be relied upon to stay healthy and now has Josh Rosen right at his heels. Projecting Bradford to play even 12-13 games is a volatile strategy. McCown had a terrific 2017 campaign, but once again will be playing a mentor role.
