Fantasy Football: Josh McCown a sneaky start vs St. Louis Rams


 

After a two-hour delay, the game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Chicago bears would resume on Sunday, and despite some of the worst possible conditions to have to throw in,  and the Bears would rally in the second-half behind a solid performance by backup quarterback Josh McCown, who was filling in for the injured Jay Cutler.

After the game went into overtime, McCown would lead the Bears down the field, and Robbie Gould kicked the game-winning 38-yard field goal to win the game. McCown finished the day 19/31 for 216 yards (7.0) and one touchdown and didn’t throw a pick, earning him a 92.9 QB rating.

Bears Head Coach Marc Trestman has already announced McCown will make a second straight start Week 12 at St. Louis in place of Cutler, who remains week to week with an ankle injury. McCown is 2-0 as a starter this season, defeating the Packers on Nov. 4 and the Ravens on Sunday. He has not thrown an interception in 101 pass attempts. With Russell Wilson, Nick Foles, Andy Dalton and E.J. Manuel on a bye this week, McCown could be a sneaky fantasy football start against the St. Louis Rams.
