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.

Sam Darnold solid in Jets debut
Rookie throws for 198-2-1 in rout of Lions
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 11, 8:16 am

New York Jets
Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold completed 16 of 21 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns, but the most telling number was this: He had only four incomplete passes after the pick-six on his first throw. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Darnold stayed in constant contact with backup and mentor Josh McCown during the game, with both players soaking up the success after the opening snafu. Darnold is worth adding in 12-team leagues as a fantasy backup, and is a must-own in dynasty leagues.
