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.

Josh McCown to enter training camp atop Jets' QB depth chart

Veteran QB Josh McCown will enter training camp with the Jets as their top quarterback, but Sam Darnold is expected to see the most reps and compete for the job, according to Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com.

Fantasy Impact

Regardless of the outcome, neither McCown or Darnold should be owned in standard fantasy football leagues (12-team, starting 1 QB). Darnold is naturally the better bet long-term, and his draft capital suggests the Jets will give him every chance to succeed. McCown is already 39 years old, though, so the Jets surely know his time in the league is coming to an end. It shouldn't be shocking if McCown plays most, or even all, of 2018, paving the way for Darnold in 2019. McCown could be a sneaky pick in SuperFlex formats, as lots of fantasy players are ready for the rookies to take the field.
