Josh McCown does not play in preseason finale

Eagles backup quarterback Josh McCown did not play in the team's preseason finale against the New York Jets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

McCown only recently joined the Eagles, but the team apparently values him enough and feels he is adequately prepared to not risk him to injury in a meaningless fourth preseason game. Rookie Clayton Thorson played the entire game.

Josh McCown throws two touchdowns in Eagles debut

Recently-signed quarterback Josh McCown completed 17 of his 24 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, his first live action since joining the Eagles less than a week ago.

Fantasy Impact

McCown got plenty of work on Thursday despite signing with the Eagles just a few days ago, and he already looked comfortable in the offense. While he will only have fantasy value this season in the event of an injury to Carson Wentz, he is a strong handcuff option for Wentz owners who can afford to roster his backup in what should be one of the better offenses in the NFL this season.

Josh McCown comes out of retirement to sign deal with Eagles

Quarterback Josh McCown is unretiring and signing a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

McCown had signed on to be an ESPN analyst this season but had reportedly told the network that if the right opportunity came along, he would have to take it. With Nick Foles signing with the Jaguars in the offseason, the Eagles had turned to Nate Sudfeld to be their backup to Carson Wentz. But with Sudfeld out for a couple of months with a broken wrist, third-stringer Cody Kessler in the concussion protocol, and rookie Clayton Thorson struggling, the Eagles had a clear need at the backup QB position. McCown should step right in and be Wentz's backup in Philadelphia, putting him a snap away from being relevant in fantasy leagues at 40 years old.

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.
