Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (pectoral) is in line to start Sunday's game against the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. With Kyler Murray (ankle) expected to be held out until after the team's bye week, McCoy, who is also listed as questionable, should get the nod for the third consecutive game. He completed 22 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown in Week 9, but he went 11-for-20 with an interception and fumble last Sunday. Fantasy managers should view him as a QB3 this week.
Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback Colt McCoy (pectoral) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. McCoy put in a full practice on Friday after two limited sessions earlier in the week, so we suspect he'll be ready to make his third straight start, if needed, if Kyler Murray (ankle) isn't given the green light to play. The Cardinals are expected to take their decision on Murray up to game time once again, so fantasy managers will need to have a backup plan in place if they plan on starting Murray. The 35-year-old McCoy has gone 33-for-46 (71.74 completion percentage) for 356 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the last two games without Murray, and he'd only be desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he gets another start.
Arizona Cardinals running back Eno Benjamin (groin) and quarterback Colt McCoy (pectoral) were limited participants in Thursday's practice. Both remained limited for the second straight day. McCoy strained his pectoral muscle in the Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The 35-year-old is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers and would draw the start again if Kyler Murray (ankle) cannot suit up. Benjamin rushed for 22 yards on six carries in the Week 10 loss to Carolina. He will serve as James Conner's backup and be used in a change of pace role if active in Week 11. Stay tuned for further updates.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (pectoral) and running back Eno Benjamin (groin) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. McCoy strained a pectoral muscle in the Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers, but he should be available to make a third straight start this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks should Kyler Murray (ankle) be forced to miss another game. The 35-year-old couldn't get anything going for the offense against Carolina and would only be an emergency QB2 for fantasy managers if he starts again. Benjamin has 15 carries for 61 yards and a touchdown with Chase Edmonds (ankle) injured the last two weeks as a complement to James Conner. With Jonathan Ward still dealing with a concussion, Conner is currently the only healthy RB on Arizona's roster.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (pectoral) suffered a pectoral strain in the Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. McCoy should be healthy enough to make another start in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks if Kyler Murray (ankle) misses his third straight game. The 35-year-old McCoy left Sunday's game in the third quarter and never returned, leaving Chris Streveler to finish out the loss. McCoy and the Cardinals offense struggled all day, and the veteran backup went 11-for-20 for 107 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. The Cardinals and fantasy managers everywhere are really hoping that Murray can play this weekend against Seattle.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (chest) was injured during Sunday's bout against Carolina. The veteran sustained a chest injury that required further evaluation inside the locker room. McCoy wasn't playing well before succumbing to the ailment, throwing 107 yards and a pick off 11-for-20 passing and it came after starter Kyler Murray (ankle) was ruled out before the start of the contest. Nonetheless, he is questionable to return, with Chris Streveler entering the contest and taking over under center.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy should start in Week 10 due to Kyler Murray's (ankle) expected absence, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. This is the second straight week in which McCoy will be called into action. Last Sunday, he impressed against the 49ers, going 22-for-26 with 249 passing yards and one touchdown. He's a strong option in Superflex and 2QB leagues against the Panthers this week.
Veteran free-agent quarterback Colt McCoy is scheduled to visit with the Arizona Cardinals next week, and there's a good chance it will result in a deal, according to a source. If McCoy were to sign with Arizona, he'd become Kyler Murray's direct backup. The New York Giants signed veteran backup Mike Glennon last week, signaling that they won't be bringing McCoy back as Daniel Jones' backup in 2021. McCoy, 34, spent six seasons with the Washington Football team before signing with the Giants last offseason. He completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 375 yards, one touchdown and one interception in four games (two starts) for the G-Men last season. McCoy doesn't have any fantasy value as a backup, and he'd merely be a low-end QB2 for QB streamers in two-QB leagues if Murray were to get hurt and miss any time.
New York Giants quarterback Colt McCoy was 19-for-31 passing for 221 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in a loss to the Browns on Sunday. McCoy added three rushing yards on two carries. The Giants' offense was in reverse all night as McCoy could not get anything going versus a stout Browns Defense. Starter Daniel Jones (hamstring) may return next week, but even if it's McCoy under center in Baltimore fantasy owners should look for a different option.
New York Giants quarterback Colt McCoy will officially be the starting quarterback for Sunday's game versus Cleveland after the organization decided to rule Daniel Jones (ankle, hamstring) inactive for the contest. McCoy, a former Brown, is making his second start of the year, but can firmly be avoided in all fantasy scenarios aside from contrarian single-game DFS lineups. Even against a historically exploitable Seahawks secondary earlier this year, McCoy was able to compile just 105 passing yards, with his presence under center likely knocking key offensive cogs such as Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, and Evan Engram down a peg in appeal. Jones' next chance to take the field comes next week against Baltimore, a matchup he'll have a chance to start in should he prove to be healthy throughout the week.
The New York Giants seem content to take the decision on whether or not to start Daniel Jones (ankle, hamstring) right down to the wire prior to Sunday's game versus Cleveland. With that in mind, it appears as if the team is leaning toward starting Colt McCoy, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, which wouldn't be a surprise due to how limited Jones has been in practice this week. With the contest not taking place until Sunday night, fantasy managers are best served looking outside of the New York quarterback room for a season-long playoff option. While the Browns Defense was pummeled by Lamar Jackson and Co. last week, McCoy is not nearly the same threat. Check back prior to kickoff for the final word, but at this stage, McCoy appears to be on track to be under center in primetime.
As weird as it sounds, ESPN's Jordan Raanan has suggested that the Giants could give snaps to both Daniel Jones and Colt McCoy at quarterback in Week 14. If true, that split would instantly make both players non-viable fantasy options, as it would be too hard to predict how things play out for Giants. It would also be a slight downgrade for the Giants pass rushers, though none of them were great plays either.
New York Giants quarterback Colt McCoy played efficiently and made enough plays when needed to help the Giants earn a big road victory in Seattle. McCoy completed 13 of his 22 passing attempts (59%) for 105 yards, one touchdown, and one interception that wasn't entirely his fault as it bounced off Evan Engram's hands and into the arms of the Seattle defense. It was the performance the Giants needed from their backup but not one that should excite fantasy managers. Starter Daniel Jones (hamstring) may be back in Week 14, but if he isn't McCoy would only garner interest in deeper, two-quarterback fantasy leagues.
New York Giants head coach Joe Judge said that quarterback Colt McCoy will see the majority of the first-team repetitions in practice on Wednesday, with some also going to Clayton Thorson. Daniel Jones (hamstring) is recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered in the Week 12 win over the Bengals and is not expected to play in Week 13 against the Seahawks. All signs are pointing toward McCoy, 34, making the start against Seattle after he relieved Jones last Sunday. He'll be asked to be more of a game manager, though, and will have a very low ceiling and floor for fantasy managers considering him as a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues. With McCoy likely under center for the G-Men this weekend, the Seahawks Defense will be a popular streaming unit in fantasy.
New York Giants quarterback Colt McCoy went 6-for-10 passing for 31 yards in relief of Daniel Jones (hamstring) in a win over the Bengals. McCoy didn't throw a touchdown nor record a turnover and added seven rushing yards in the win. Jones is scheduled to undergo further tests on Monday, but early reports indicate Jones is unlikely to suit up in Week 13. The 10-year journeyman McCoy doesn't offer much to fantasy managers and hurts the value of other members in the New York passing game.
New York Giants backup quarterback Colt McCoy is currently in for the injured Daniel Jones. It looked likes Jones is dealing with a hamstring injury, putting his return to the game in question. Jones is 16-for-26 for 211 yards so far. If he's unable to return, McCoy's likely to hurt the prospects of the rest of the lineup.
The New York Giants agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with quarterback Colt McCoy on Thursday, according to a source. McCoy will become the new backup for Daniel Jones in the Big Apple. The former third-round pick of the Browns in 2010, the 33-year-old played in just 12 games with the Redskins since 2014 and has thrown 29 touchdowns and 27 interceptions for a QB rating of 78.4 in his career. McCoy isn't the worst backup in the league, but he's also not the best. He's averaged just 6.6 yards per completion with the Browns, 49ers and Redskins.
Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy completed 18 of 27 passes for 119 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's loss to New England. The Redskins are very obviously the worst team in the NFC, and with their season already over at 0-5, there is no justifiable reason for the coaching staff not to roll with Dwayne Haskins going forward. Should McCoy retain the starting job for another week, he'll get to take on the AFC's worst team in the Dolphins. On that note, the Dolphins represent a fine matchup in which to officially turn the keys over to Haskins. Regardless of how this situation unfolds in the coming days, McCoy is about as far off the fantasy radar as can be.
The Washington Redskins will start quarterback Colt McCoy in Week 5 against the Patriots. Case Keenum was benched in Week 4 and rookie Dwayne Haskins came in to throw three more interceptions, so head coach Jay Gruden went with the QB most familiar with his offense. McCoy draws an extremely tough matchup in the New England defense and is a last-gasp QB2 this weekend. You shouldn't really trust any of Washington's pass-catchers, including an injured Terry McLaurin (hamstring), in this matchup. The Pats are allowing the fewest fantasy points per week (13.0) to opposing signal-callers and have yet to give up a passing touchdown this year.
Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy (leg), who head coach Jay Gruden has familiarity with, is an option to start in Week 5 against the Patriots over both rookie Dwayne Haskins and Case Keenum. Keenum was benched early in the Week 4 loss to the Giants in favor of Haskins, who looked like a rookie (three interceptions). McCoy hasn't been active yet this year but practiced in full last week and is fully healthy. He'll at least get a shot to run the offense in the near future. However, no matter who is starting for Washington in Week 5, they should be avoided against New England's shutdown defense.
Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy (leg) will likely not play against the Giants. After rumblings that McCoy could play in Week 4 while also serving as the team's starter, the Redskins will continue to roll with Case Keenum on Sunday, with rookie Dwayne Haskins coming in for relief if needed. Keenum has a favorable matchup against a weak Giants Defense, especially if wide receiver Terry McLaurin (hamstring), who has three touchdowns on the year, can suit up.
Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy (leg), who had three offseason leg surgeries, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday for the first time since mid-August. Starter Case Keenum (foot) is currently in a walking boot and is questionable to play in Week 4 against the Giants, but head coach Jay Gruden said that rookie Dwayne Haskins is the current backup. Gruden left open the possibility that McCoy could pass Haskins up as the backup by this weekend, however. Gaskins has shown his abilities, but the Redskins seem reluctant to want to put him out there so soon in his rookie year. McCoy has been with Gruden for all six of his seasons with the team, so he'd bring more familiarity if Keenum has to sit. Keenum had five turnovers against the Bears on Monday night, but Washington still thinks he gives them the best chance to win right now. Whoever is under center against the Giants will have low-end QB2 appeal this weekend. A move to either McCoy or Haskins would be a downgrade to rookie receiver Terry McLaurin.
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that quarterback Colt McCoy (leg) could miss multiple weeks of the regular season after having three follow-up surgeries this offseason on his broken leg. That leaves Case Keenum and rookie Dwayne Haskins to split the repetitions. Keenum is probably the favorite, but he's been erratic in camp. Haskins has shown signs of his upside, but he also doesn't appear ready to be a starter in his first year. It hasn't helped that Washington's left tackle spot has become troublesome in the absence of Trent Williams. This situation could be ugly in 2019, and we'd be surprised if Haskins doesn't see some starts eventually. Keenum is an unattractive QB2 in this offense, while Haskins is simply a dynasty hold for now.
McCoy has the most experience of the group, so it's no real surprise to see him lead the group early on. Case Keenum follows as backup and Dwayne Haskins is listed as third string. It's still extremely early, but McCoy looks like the early favorite to get the job. His knowledge of this offense and chemistry with Gruden is one thing, but he's also just a bit better than the comparable Keenum. Haskins likely won't start the season as the starter, but that could all change with a few preseason explosions or an injury. It'll be interesting to see how this one shakes out in the end.
Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy (leg) is missing offseason workouts with the team while recovering from another procedure on his leg, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. McCoy broke his fibula last season in December, and head coach Jay Gruden explained that the team rushed McCoy back for a potential late-season playoff push. The quarterback has now had three procedures on his leg since last December, although he could return as soon as next week. He'll compete for the starting job with Case Keenum in training camp, but the 'Skins could add another QB early in the draft this week. Even if McCoy somehow wins the starting job this year, he won't be an attractive QB2 in fantasy leagues.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
