Description: Quarterback Luke McCown signed a deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
Insight: We can't see any fantasy value here, but he was in the New Orleans camp for a while, maybe he can give the Falcons the Saints plays.

Description: The Jaguars are reportedly close to re-signing QB Luke McCown to a one-year deal. SOURCE: FLORIDA TIMES-UNION
Insight: McCown tore the ACL in his right knee and was on injured reserve for most of the 2010 season. The Jags are expected to address the quarterback position either through the draft, free agency, or both.

Description: After entering Sunday for a faltering David Garrard, McCown tore the ACL in his left knee. He tore the same ACL back in 2006.
Insight: With McCown done for the season, Jacksonville signed Todd Bouman on Monday. That's good news for Garrard's job security, as Bouman has never done even enough as a backup to stick with the same team for very long. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: The Jaguars acquired Luke McCown from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 7th round pick.
Insight: MCCown is strictly a back up in this league, so the 7th rounder wasn't such a high price. He would need a David Garrard injury to matter in fantasy (and maybe not even then.) (Sportsbuff.com)

Description: According to NFL.com, the Buccaneers are gauging trade interest in three of their QBs-McCown, Byron Leftwich and Josh Johnson.
Insight: Leftwich appears to be the favorite to win the starting job, but this situation seems uncertain at best. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/26/2009 12:14:00 AM
Description: ESPN.com's Pat Yasinkas reports that he's hearing the Bucs' starting job is McCown's to lose.
Insight: It was previously reported that McCown would head into camp as the starter, but this seems to indicate that he'll have to disappoint to be overtaken. Of course, even if he does hang on to the job, McCown doesn't look all that good as a fantasy option. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/21/2009 11:29:00 PM
Description: The St. Petersburg Times reports that McCown is the first-stringer heading into training camp.
Insight: That seemed to be the case back when the team re-signed him, but recent indications had pointed to Byron Leftwich becoming the favorite. He has missed a lot of practice with minor injuries, so Leftwich could well take over the job in camp. Ultimately, whoever starts will be a very low-level fantasy option. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: The Bucs' official website reports that coach Raheem Morris believes the starting experience Byron Leftwich brings has to be considered an edge in the competition for Tampa's starting job. Morris also said, though, that the race will come down to preseason performance.
Insight: McCown looked like the front runner back when the team re-signed him and let Jeff Garcia walk, but Leftwich has been gaining steam. Of course, McCown is getting more reps while Leftwich nurses a groin injury. We'll see what happens in camp, though neither is more than a very late fantasy option at best. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: The St. Petersburg Times reports that McCown and Byron Leftwich are running pretty closely in the race to start for the Bucs this season.
Insight: McCown looked like the clear front runner back when he re-signed with the team early this off-season, though Leftwich is probably the more talented passer. Neither should be drafted before the late rounds in fantasy leagues, if at all. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/26/2009 9:42:00 AM
Description: First-round pick Josh Freeman told his NFL.com chat crowd that the team told him it signed Byron Leftwich as a smokescreen.
Insight: That would seem to make it more likely that the team will cut Leftwich before the season opens, which in turn would seem to make McCown the favorite once again to break camp as the starter. Even if he does, though, he's no better than a very late fantasy pick -- if that. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/25/2009 7:08:00 PM
Description: The Bucs traded up two spots to draft Josh Freeman with their first pick in the draft on Saturday.
Insight: McCown looked like the front-runner to start for the Bucs early this off-season. If he does win the starting job, he probably won't last beyond one season at most. McCown isn't worth drafting at all in fantasy leagues, though, even if he does win the job. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: McCown appeared in two games last season and only attempted one pass, which was incomplete.
Insight: McCown was expected to be the favorite to win the starting QB job in Tampa Bay but will now be pushed by free agent acquisition Byron Leftwich. If he wins the job, McCown would be a number two fantasy QB. (SportsBuff.com)
