Josh McCown, QB, Browns
2015 Outlook:Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
Many football experts predict McCown will win the starting QB in Cleveland job. I don't agree. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave him a chance last year, but he went 1-10 while completing only 56.3 percent of his passes. He didn't have one game with more than two passing scores. In his 11 games, Josh threw for 2,206 yards with 11 TDs and 14 interceptions. In 2013, McCown flashed upside in the Chicago Bears' offense when Jay Cutler went down with an injury. McCown's success that year was driven by Chicago's offensive system and strong receiving personnel. The Browns barely throw to their running backs and have questionable talent at wide receiver and tight end. Manziel has a much better chance of keeping defenses honest due to his running upside. Josh is 17-32 as a starter through 12 NFL seasons. He'll be 36 in July. Even if he wins the starting job out of training camp, he won't keep it for the whole season. Josh has no fantasy upside in 2015.
