2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
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.

Injury Darnold out, McCown gets another start
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 23, 3:30 pm

New York Jets
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will sit for the second straight game with a foot injury, coach Todd Bowles confirmed Friday. The move sets up the second-oldest quarterback matchup in NFL history: Josh McCown, 39, against the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, 41. Brady has been limited in practice this week with a knee injury but is expected to play Sunday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: McCown's first start of the season against the Bills didn't go so well. McCown ended the day with 135 yards and 2 INTs finishing as the QB29 in Week 10. He'll face the Patriots in Week 12 with a banged up receiving corps. Robby Anderson is pushing to play with an ankle injury.


Injury Sam Darnold likely to miss Week 10
Sprained foot
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 7, 1:00 pm

New York Jets
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is not expected to play Sunday after spraining his right foot last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, according to a league source. The injury is considered week-to-week, the source said. After facing the Buffalo Bills, the Jets have their bye week, followed by a home game against the New England Patriots. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Darnold was seen in a walking boot meaning Josh McCown will start against the Bills this week. The Jets have one 300-yard passing game through nine weeks and while the move to McCown might be a slight upgrade, he should only be considered in two-QB leagues.
