Apparently McCarron does not have a broken collarbone as reports said following last week's game. The Bills did say recently McCarron was getting a second opinion and that tests were inconclusive. It has been a strange and complicated QB competition and rotation, according to those who follow the team. Allen will start this week's game for the Bills and was looking to be the favorite to be the team's starter for Week 1 when McCarron was going to miss time.
BUF QB AJ McCarron - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook
A.J. McCarron faces a rookie in training camp to see who will be the starting quarterback Week 1. Josh Allen was drafted as the quarterback of the future, but McCarron could win the job and be the guy for 2018. Opportunity is McCarron's biggest fantasy asset.
McCarron can easily remain an NFL backup. Even if he is the Week 1 starter, how long will that last? He does have some NFL experience as opposed to rookie Josh Allen. But only three NFL starts and 133 pass attempts in Cincinnati is not exactly a big sample size.
2018 Bottom Line
McCarron or any Buffalo quarterback should not be drafted. No matter who it is, the Bills offense is expected to be below-average. McCarron only gets fantasy value if he starts Week 1 and performs well. For now, he isn't on the radar.
