Jets sticking with Josh McCown at QB

The Jets enter the bye week 4-6 and head coach Todd Bowles reiterated Monday that Josh McCown is his quarterback. And barring injury, McCown will occupy that spot for that foreseeable future.

“We’re going to play the games and we’re going to try to win each one and take them one at a time,” Bowles told reporters during a conference call. “Josh will be our quarterback then we’ll go from there.”

Fantasy Impact:

Even though McCown and the offense struggled to find a rhythm against the Bucs on Sunday, the 38-year-old has put together an impressive season. The 15-year veteran has thrown for 2,242 yards, 14 touchdowns, and eight interceptions while completing 69% of his passes.

Ron Rivera said Greg Olsen is progressing very well and the plan is still for him to return for the team's game against the Jets in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact:

Reed added in his tweet that plan could change but Rivera likes where Olsen is at to this point and the team is excited to get him back. As we've seen from players returning from injury, they don't always jump right in with fantasy success but Olsen is looking to be ready to go for the fantasy playoffs.

Jets WR ArDarius Stewart (groin, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 10.

Jets RB Lawrence Thomas (concussion) took full practice reps again Friday.

Friday, November 10, 2017, 5:53pm

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 10. With Forte out, Bilal Powell is a low-end RB1 (and chalk DFS) play. In the four games that Forte has missed over the last two seasons, Powell has averaged 18.3 touches for 108 yards and 0.50 touchdowns. Elijah McGuire is also worth a look as a RB3/flex who should see 8-12 touches as the change-of-pace back. Beat writer Rich Cimini intimated that this might be a multi-week absence for Forte.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) misses Friday's practice, ruled OUT

Brian Costello - [Full Article]

Forte missed another practice and, according to Costello, it's "not looking good" for him to play on Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

UPDATE: the Jets have officially ruled Forte OUT for Week 10.

Fantasy Impact:

It's looking more and more likely that Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will shoulder the workload for the Jets this weekend. Powell should lead the committee and we currently have him ranked as a top-18 RB in both standard and PPR leagues.

Jets QB Christian Hackenberg (right finger) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

Jets RB Lawrence Thomas (concussion) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

Thursday, November 9, 2017, 6:46pm

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Forte is starting to look very questionable for Week 10. We’ll see if he’s able to return to practice on Friday. If he’s out, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire would see more touches.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Jets RB Lawrence Thomas (concussion) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Forte apparently has some swelling in his knee. If he can’t play on Sunday, look for both Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire to be Sneaky Starts in a nice matchup.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (right shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Winston is out for a while, so Ryan Fitzpatrick is a Sneaky Start given the favorable matchup against the Jets.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 6:00pm

Jets QB Christian Hackenberg (right finger) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

Bucs WR Mike Evans' appeal denied, suspended Week 10

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 7:55pm

Field Yates on Twitter - [Full Article]

Official: Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had his suspension appeal denied. He's out Sunday versus the Jets.

Related players: DeSean Jackson, Adam Humphries, Chris Godwin, Ryan Fitzpatrick

Fantasy Impact:

The good news is the Bucs play the Jets but the bad news is they will be without their starting QB in Jameis Winston, and now their top WR. Normally boom-or-bust Jackson could see a few more looks with Humphries and Godwin possibly getting more involved.
