Week 4 fantasy football for quarterback Josh McCown and his New York Jets sees them face a very blitz-happy defense of the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s best to sit him this week.

Last week, the New York Jets surprised the football world and beat the Miami Dolphins. Not many had Gang Green beating the Dolphins but they showed up and played well as a team. Even quarterback Josh McCown put up a solid game as he totaled 249 passing yards, 18 completions, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Is he worth starting in Week 4 fantasy football against the defense of the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Unfortunately for McCown, even though he enjoyed a solid Week 3, that won’t be this case this time around. The defense of the Jaguars is a very blitz-happy unit that will undoubtedly bring the pressure on a consistent basis come Sunday.

It’s best to sit McCown this week and find another viable fantasy football quarterback if you’re desperate for one. There won’t be any sleeper action here as it’s hard to imagine McCown lighting it up against the tough defense of the Jaguars.

Fantasy owners would be wise to find another quarterback via the waiver wire if they’re in need of one entering a favorable matchup.

Yes, last week the Jets were underdogs even at home and much is the same against the Jaguars. Technically, the Jaguars are a better team and should easily beat the Jets which doesn’t bode well for McCown.

The Jets will more than likely commit to establishing the run in this matchup since it’s an area of weakness of the Jaguars defense. Expect to see more running and less passing in this Week 4 matchup.

Sit McCown and don’t even think twice about it. He’s not going to do much of anything against the pass rush of the Jaguars defense especially with an offensive gameplan more than likely revolving around committing to the ground game.
