Analysis: McCown wasn't bad in this game, but he still is way too much of a threat to throw the ball to the other team.

Sep. 24, 2017 12:55 PM PT1:55 PM MT2:55 PM CT3:55 PM ET19:55 GMT3:55 12:55 PM MST2:55 PM EST2:55 PM CT23:55 UAE15:55 ETNaN:� - Josh McCown was 18 of 23 for 249 yards and threw one touchdown pass Sunday in the New York Jets' 20-6 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Analysis: McCown was solid, but still a bye week fantasy option at best in standard leagues.
Sep. 17, 2017 4:48 PM PT5:48 PM MT6:48 PM CT7:48 PM ET23:48 GMT7:48 4:48 PM MST6:48 PM EST6:48 PM CT3:48 UAE (+1)19:48 ETNaN:� - Josh McCown was 17 of 25 for 166 yards and threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the New York Jets' 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He did not throw an interception, fumbled once and was sacked four times. McCown added 31 rushing yards on four carries.
Analysis: McCown threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse with 9:08 remaining in the first half as the Jets cut the Raiders' lead to 14-7. He later hit Kearse over the middle for an 11-yard touchdown with 8:42 remaining, and Raiders kicker Giorgio Tavecchio hit a 29-yard field goal with 25 seconds remaining.
Sep. 10, 2017 1:51 PM PT2:51 PM MT3:51 PM CT4:51 PM ET20:51 GMT4:51 1:51 PM MST3:51 PM EST3:51 PM CT0:51 UAE (+1)16:51 ETNaN:� - McCown went 26 of 39 for 187 yards and two interceptions in the Jets' 21-12 loss to the Bills, though he did run in a TD from a yard out.
Analysis: The 38-year-old quarterback opened his 15th NFL season by extending his personal losing streak to eight games dating to Oct. 11, 2015, when he led Cleveland to a 33-30 win over Baltimore. McCown is now 1-17 in his last 18 starts.
Sep. 1, 2017 6:38 AM PT7:38 AM MT8:38 AM CT9:38 AM ET13:38 GMT21:38 6:38 AM MST8:38 AM EST8:38 AM CT17:38 UAE9:38 ETNaN:� - McCown took a shot to his chest from Eagles linebacker Joe Walker after completing a 20-yard pass to Austin Seferian-Jenkins with 7:13 left in the opening quarter of Thursday's preseason finale.
Analysis: The quarterback was down on a knee for a few moments before getting to his feet and jogging off the field toward the sideline before going down to a knee again as trainers attended to him. He's expected to be OK to start the opener, but you shouldn't be starting him.
Aug. 28, 2017 1:08 PM PT2:08 PM MT3:08 PM CT4:08 PM ET20:08 GMT4:08 1:08 PM MST3:08 PM EST3:08 PM CT0:08 UAE (+1)16:08 ETNaN:� - McCown won the New York Jets' starting job and will open with the first team when the regular season begins Sept. 10.
Analysis: The well-traveled McCown, 38, played only one series with the Jets -- in the preseason opener -- and threw a touchdown pass. It was apparently enough to edge 2016 second-round pick Christian Hackenberg. Bryce Petty, who had three touchdown passes last week, left that game against the New York Giants with a left knee injury.
Mar. 17, 2017 9:19 AM PT10:19 AM MT11:19 AM CT12:19 PM ET16:19 GMT0:19 9:19 AM MST11:19 AM EST10:19 AM CT20:19 UAE12:19 ETNaN:� - The Jets have signed McCown to a one-year contract worth a reported $6 million in guaranteed money.
Analysis: The guaranteed sum makes McCown the favorite to begin the season as the Jets' starter, where he'll serve as a bridge to either Christian Hackenberg or a rookie. The 13-year veteran, who'll turn 38 on July 4, spent the last two seasons with Cleveland and made 11 starts for the Browns, throwing for 3,209 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 13 overall games.
Feb. 7, 2017 2:27 PM PT3:27 PM MT4:27 PM CT5:27 PM ET22:27 GMT6:27 3:27 PM MST5:27 PM EST4:27 PM CT2:27 UAE (+1)17:27 ETNaN:� - McCown has been released by the Browns. McCown went 1-10 in starts over two seasons with the Browns, who cut him Tuesday before he was due a $750,000 roster bonus in March.
Analysis: McCown battled injuries throughout his stint with Cleveland. The 37-year-old got a concussion in his debut for the Browns in 2015 and twice broke his collarbone. And while he didn't produce on the field, McCown was a valuable leader for the Browns, who are still searching for their franchise quarterback. McCown passed for 3,209 yards and 18 touchdowns with the Browns. He said at the end of last season that he wants to keep playing.
