Josh McCown atrocious in losing effort

Josh McCown completed 17-of-30 pass attempts for 128 yards and an interception in the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Titans. He also rushed once for three yards.

Fantasy Impact

No need to think too hard about this one -- McCown is a back-end option at best and has no place in starting lineups that feature only one quarterback. Next week against the Bills in Buffalo is no cakewalk, either.

Josh McCown expected to start in Week 13

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Jets are expected to start QB Josh McCown in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

While Sam Darnold may work out for the Jets during pregame warmups to try to "convince" the team that he is ready to go, Rapoport is suggesting that it will likely be McCown under center when the game ultimately kicks off. Per reports, the Jets are "committed" to making sure Darnold is fully healthy before letting him back on the field and with McCown in line to start, it appears that the upside rookie will have to wait at least another week. Facing a must-win mentality Titans defense, McCown, who has thrown only one touchdown to three interceptions in two games this season, should be avoided at all costs in your Week 13 fantasy football matchups. If Tennessee's stout run defense shuts down New York's erratic rushing attack and the game becomes one-dimensional for McCown, the Titans defense might just pin their ears back and tee-off.

Josh McCown does not inspire vs. Patriots

Josh McCown completed 26-of-45 pass attempts for 276 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jets' Week 12 loss to the Patriots. He rushed three times for 25 yards.

Fantasy Impact

McCown has never been an exciting fantasy quarterback, and picked up right where he left off in his previous starts. He delivered a performance that won't kill you, and is fine for a QB2 in a Superflex or 2QB league, but he should not be touched in standard formats. At this point, it looks like McCown will start next week against the Titans, where he could be used as a second QB, but otherwise stay away.

Josh McCown lays egg in loss to Bills

Josh McCown completed 17-of-34 pass attempts for 135 yards and two interceptions in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bills. He also carried once for four yards.

Fantasy Impact

McCown was even worse than the sporadic Sam Darnold has been this season, preventing the Jets from getting anything going offensively. With the Jets on bye next week and then facing the Patriots, McCown does not need to be owned in essentially any leagues.

Josh McCown expected to start for Jets

Josh McCown is expected to start Week 10's contest against the Bills with Sam Darnold doubtful due to a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

McCown is expected to get the start. He's not a fantasy option outside of deep 2QB leagues given the difficult matchup against the Bills' secondary.
