 Josh McCown, NYJ (Bye: 11)
37
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 213   DOB: 1979-07-04   Age: 39
College: Sam Houston State   Draft: 2002 Round 3 (16)

2018 (Projected)NYJ 86 139 958 6 6 16 52 1 83.1  

Outlook: At 39 years of age and with the New York Jets using the third overall pick of the 2018 NFL draft to select the quarterback of the future Sam Darnold, Josh McCown enters the 2018 season as a placeholder and mentor for Darnold until the rookie is ready to assume the starting role.

McCown is an excellent locker room presence and exactly the type of player any NFL franchise would love to help groom a young quarterback. It also doesn't hurt that McCown posted a career-year in 2017, setting personal records for touchdown passes (18), passing yards (2926), and completion percentage (67.3). In a season in which many Jet fans anticipated that the franchise would intentionally tank to earn a high draft pick, McCown and the New York passing offense was surprisingly good, especially for fantasy purposes.

The uncertainty surrounding how many games he will start before Darnold takes the reigns makes McCown unworthy of a draft selection in anything other than the deepest two-quarterback leagues. However, should the rookie from USC struggle, McCown has enough weapons in the passing game to once again be a viable streaming option, especially Week 6 at home against the Colts.


 Nathan Peterman, BUF (Bye: 11)
38

 Jacoby Brissett, IND (Bye: 9)
39

2018 (Projected)IND 33 55 371 2 2 11 49 1 37.5  

Outlook: With Andrew Luck coming off of a season-long injury, it would be a disservice to completely ignore the backup. If Brissett plays this season, it's a significant hit to the stock of every other skill player for the Colts, but Brissett could have some streaming value. He had four weeks over 20 fantasy points and four games as a top 12 QB scorer. If forced into action, he may be the one player to retain value, if only intermittently.


 Lamar Jackson, BAL (Bye: 10)
40
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 200   DOB: 1997-01-07   Age: 21
College: Louisville   Draft: 2018 Round 1 (32) 
SeasonTeamGameComp Att Yard TD INTAtt Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2018 (Projected)BAL 27 49 335 2 1 8 45 0 29.3  

Outlook: I don't normally address the backup quarterbacks when I do these player outlooks, but the combination of collegiate production, draft pedigree, and the state of the Flacco-led offensive, I'd be remiss if I didn't at least touch on Jackson's fantasy prospects. The former Heisman trophy winner adds a dimension this offense hasn't had since the days of Steve McNair. Jackson can make plays with his legs, both in the running and passing game. Now, barring injury or catastrophe, Jackson is unlikely to see play at quarterback early in the season, but if/when he does, I think he has to be a priority free agent add. Much like Deshaun Watson last year, I do think Jackson has the skills and bravado to give this team a spark, and sometimes fantasy success comes down to finding lightning in a bottle. Most leagues are unlikely to have the roster limits to be able to waste on a back-up QB stash, but if you do, Jackson makes for a fine long-term investment.

 Brandon Weeden, HOU (Bye: 10)
43
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 221   DOB: 1983-10-14   Age: 35

2018 (Projected)HOU 50 82 556 3 2 4 7 0 40.5  

Outlook: Hopefully Weeden doesn't see the field in 2018, but Watson's mobile style paired with his ACL injury slightly increase the likelihood that Weeden could make an appearance. On the whole, Weeden would represent a major step-back for every piece of the offense.

He hasn't started a game since 2015 and over his career he has a 57.9 percent completion percentage and a 31-to-30 touchdown to interception ratio. If he comes on the field, every player takes a hit.
