With Sam Darnold expected to miss Sunday's meeting with the Bills, the New York Jets will turn to quarterback Josh McCown to start for the team. McCown brings a veteran presence to the field and should avoid excessively turning the ball over, but the Bills currently limit fantasy quarterbacks to the third-fewest fantasy points per game, making McCown a strong sit this week.

With New York Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold (foot) dealing with a foot sprain, veteran Josh McCown will get the start in Week 10 against the Bills, according to a source. Darnold will be re-evaluated after the Week 11 bye, but his status for Week 12 is "uncertain" for now. Consider Darnold week-to-week for now. McCown doesn't have a lot of upside but was serviceable as the starter last year before a late-season hand injury knocked him out. The Bills have a stingy secondary, so things won't be easy in his first start of the season. McCown can be looked as a QB2 streamer in two-QB leagues.

New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown has been the best quarterback in training camp and is showing no signs of losing the job as the regular season approaches. McCown has always been expected to open Week 1 as the starter, but he's merely keeping the seat warm for third overall pick Sam Darnold. McCown surprised with 2,926 yards, 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games last year for Gang Green, but his upside is limited and his leash could be short if he struggles. McCown isn't an intriguing fantasy backup.
