Bryce Petty showed us what he was capable of last season and it wasn't terribly impressive. Inaccurate, prone to turnovers and never looking comfortable, Petty didn't seem to be a legitimate option as a starter in 2016 and it's hard to imagine a vast improvement, especially since the team around him hasn't improved. The team has every reason to have Christian Hackenberg ahead of him in the pecking order as well, so even if Hackenberg doesn't start, Petty could find himself deep on the bench. Of course, Josh McCown is not a good quarterback, and nobody knows if Hackenberg is serviceable much less good, so even if Petty doesn't start with the job, it's possible he could end up with it. If he does, it's not a big step down for the receivers as neither McCown not Hackenberg seem like much better options. It's going to be a rough season for any receiver with these three guys the options under center. (May 22)

Jets | Josh McCown expected to be Week 1 starter (Sat May 27, 12:43 PM) - New York Jets QB Josh McCown is the 'heavy favorite' to be named the starting quarterback even though the team plans on having an open competition, giving McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg an equal amount of practice reps, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Our View: That's the way it should shake out, but with the Jets you just never know. Hackenberg has been impressive at Jets camp according to reports, but given what he looked like last year we have to take that with a grain (block?) of salt. Fantasy owners should watch this play out in training camp and publicly shame anyone in their league that adds one of these QBs to their roster. No matter who wins the job, only QB3 value should come from it.

Jets | Equal opportunity for Jets' quarterbacks (Tue May 23, 03:56 PM) - New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg will be given equal first-team repetitions during organized team activities, according to offensive coordinator John Morton.

Our View: McCown has the advantage from his playing experience, and he may win the job because of it. No matter who is the starting QB for the Jets, there is no fantasy value to be mined here.

Jets | Bryce Petty ready to compete (Wed May 17, 03:19 PM) - New York Jets QB Bryce Petty said he is ready to compete with QBs Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg for the starting quarterback job and believes he can win the job.

Our View: Petty's Madden Ultimate Team has over a 90 rating, and he just got the 99 OVR Tom Brady Cover Reveal card (just look it up on The guy who said he can get better playing football by playing Madden has a chance to win the starting job in 2017. Yes, that's the sad state of the Jets QB situation. Don't look for fantasy gold with this team at this position. No matter who wins the starting job, we won't be recommending them as anything more than a "you forgot to take your backup QB and now they're all gone" addition.
