Colt McCoy Fantasy Football News 2021

6:12pm EST 12/20/20

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring, ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Browns. QB Colt McCoy gets the start.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Giants QB Colt McCoy is "trending" toward starting against the Browns on Sunday night. "Team still has some work today so window still slightly open for Daniel Jones," Fowler adds. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but you should be avoiding Giants QBs in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring, ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Browns after a limited week of practice. Even if he gets the start, Jones can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups. QB Colt McCoy will play if Jones doesn’t.

Giants QB Daniel Jones sprained his ankle in the 2nd quarter of last week's loss to the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is also still dealing with a bum hamstring and is "in doubt" for Sunday night's game vs. the Browns, per Rapoport. Jones' absence would put Colt McCoy back under center for the G-Men. Hopefully you can avoid this passing game in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports that the Giants expect QB Daniel Jones to play Sunday against the Cardinals, "barring a setback" with his injured hamstring. Jones will reportedly need to "pass through some checkpoints" this week, primarily including proving to HC Joe Judge that he's ready to play. There would be upside to his matchup against Arizona if he returns, and Jones should provide the offense with more upside than backup Colt McCoy. Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram look like the only real starting options among pass-catchers. Jones' return could also help the scoring opportunities for RB Wayne Gallman.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. QB Colt McCoy gets the start.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game in Seattle. He’s not going to play, leaving Colt McCoy under center. It’s a downgrade for the entire Giants offense.

Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to miss time with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's win over the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is scheduled for a Monday MRI to get a better idea of the severity of the injury. Rapoport hears that Jones might end up missing just 1 game. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but look for QB Colt McCoy to start vs. the Seahawks this weekend.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden named QB Colt McCoy his starter for Sunday's game against the Patriots. It'll be McCoy's 1st action since breaking his leg last December. He completed 63% of his passes but averaged just 6.9 yards per attempt with 3 TDs and 3 INTs in 3 appearances for Washington last year. McCoy obviously isn't a fantasy option vs. New England's stingy defense.

Redskins QB Case Keenum missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. He took a beating against the Bears on Monday night but made it through the game. We'll see Thursday if this was just a day off or if it's a legitimate injury. It's worth noting that QB Colt McCoy practiced for the 1st time on Wednesday since last December's broken leg.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "all signs" are pointing to QB Case Keenum winning Washington's starting job to open the year, citing chats with multiple sources. That goes along with recent rumors and comes as no big surprise. Keenum looks like he'll offer a steadier hand for Washington wideouts in fantasy football. We'd bet on rookie Dwayne Haskins overtaking him at some point this season, though. Neither QB should be in your fantasy plans unless you play in a 2-QB or superflex league.

When asked this week whether rookie QB Dwayne Haskins is a serious contender to open the season as the starter, HC Jay Gruden said, "He's put enough out there on tape to say he deserves a shot, without a doubt," according to ESPN's John Keim. Gruden went on to talk about the "wow" plays and traits Haskins has already displayed. He also indicated that how well Haskins continues to learn and retains information during the break before training camp will be key. At this point, we'd bet on Haskins opening as the starter. But the situation will certainly be worth watching. He doesn't look like much of a 2019 redraft factor, but Haskins should increase the upside for Washington pass-catchers in fantasy football over what Case Keenum or Colt McCoy would provide.

The Redskins nabbed Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. Haskins was just a 1-year starter at Ohio State … but it was a super impressive year. He completed 70% of his passes and set Big Ten records with 4,831 yards and 50 TDs. Haskins did a lot of damage on short and intermediate throws — his 9.1 average depth of target ranked 42nd in this draft class, per Pro Football Focus — but he also finished with the 8th best passer rating on throws 20+ yards downfield. Haskins’ 77.1% adjusted completion rate was 5th best in the class. He’s not going to boost his fantasy value with his legs, but Haskins has the size (6’3, 231 lbs.) and arm to stick as a long-term NFL starter. Despite his relative inexperience, Haskins has a good shot to win Washington’s Week 1 starting job over Case Keenum and Colt McCoy.

Check out Dwayne Haskins' scouting report.

The Broncos have traded QB Case Keenum and a 2020 7th-round pick to the Redskins in exchange for a 2020 6th-rounder. Denver will also pay half of Keenum's $7 million 2019 salary. It's a cheap acquisition for Washington but doesn't solve the team's QB problem. Keenum's impressive 2016 campaign with the Vikings looks like a major outlier. He completed 58.4% of his passes and averaged 6.7 yards per attempt over the 5 prior seasons. Then he completed 62.3% with a 6.6-yard average and 15 INTs as the Broncos' starter last year. With QB Alex Smith (leg) unlikely to play in 2019, Keenum is the favorite to start for Washington for now. We'll see if the 'Skins add anything else to the QB room.

Redskins QB Colt McCoy injured his lower right leg in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Eagles. He headed back to the locker room for x-rays and is questionable to return. QB Mark Sanchez, signed just 2 weeks ago, has replaced McCoy.

Update: McCoy has a fractured right fibula and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN's Lisa Salters.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Thursday that QB Kirk Cousins will start this weekend's game against the Cowboys but added that how much he plays is "still to be determined."  We'd be surprised if Cousins played more than a half.  QB Colt McCoy figures to handle mop-up duty.  Neither is a Week 17 fantasy option.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said that QB Robert Griffin is the team's starter "right now."  It's a lukewarm endorsement from a coach who benched RG3 last season.  Griffin will head to training camp as the favorite to be under center Week 1, but he could lose that spot to Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy.  It's the 1st time in Griffin's NFL career that he's not locked in as the starter.  Perhaps that will provide the spark to get RG3's game back on track.  We can't consider him anything more than a QB2 gamble in 2015 fantasy drafts.  Griffin has been lasting until at least the 14th round in most March MFL10 drafts.

The Redskins have placed QB Colt McCoy (neck) on IR.  That leaves the starting job to QB Robert Griffin for the final 2 games against the Eagles and Cowboys.  He'll be auditioning to either keep the gig in Washington or land a starting job elsewhere in 2015.  RG3 is obviously a risky fantasy play, but there's upside in the positive matchups.  He's an intriguing option in DFS tournaments.

Washington HC Jay Gruden said today that QB Robert Griffin III will start Saturday's game against the Eagles. Colt McCoy is expected to miss the game because of the neck injury that knocked him out of Week 15's loss to the Giants. Griffin took 7 sacks and lost a key fumble after taking over for McCoy but also threw for 236 yards and a TD and ran for a season-high 46 yards. You'd have to be in bad shape to use RG3 in a season-long fantasy lineup next weekend, but his matchup with the Eagles could mean some sneaky value in tournaments on daily fantasy sports sites.

Redskins QB Colt McCoy re-injured his neck on the 1st series of Sunday's game against the Giants.  He's considered questionable to return.  QB Robert Griffin is in the game.
