Summary

The Jets have multiple options at quarterback this year. McCown is the safest option, given the fact that Teddy Bridgewater is coming off a significant injury and Sam Darnold is a raw rookie. While he is unlikely to reach even the modest numbers he hit last season, McCown is a good fit for what will, out of necessity due to lack of talent, be a conservative passing game. That said, the Jets and McCown aren't likely to be very productive this year. Plus, at some point the team will probably let Darnold loose to see what he can do, which will shorten McCown's time under center. All the negatives add up to McCown being not worth rostering in most leagues as he has no real upside and is likely to see his production drop from last year's surprising numbers. (June 29)
