Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy re-injured his neck and is apparently going to be placed on injured reserve ending his season.
Insight: Robert Griffin III is the next man up. He filled in for McCoy after the injury and threw for 236 yards and a touchdown.
 
12/14/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy has re-injured his neck and is questionable to return.
Insight: Robert Griffin III is warming up. If you started McCoy, this was a risky choice and it's blowing up in your face.
 
12/14/2014 11:38:00 AM
Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy has been cleared for Week 15, is active and will start.
Insight: He had handled the first-team reps in practice over the past two days, so no surprise here. He will be a QB2 against the Giants.
 
12/12/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy has been cleared for Week 15 and will start, according to Espn Redskins' reporter John Keim.
Insight: He has handled the first-team reps in practice over the past two days, so no surprise here. He will be a QB2 against the Giants.
 
12/11/2014 1:41:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy was taking his reps with the first team Thursday, according to Washington beat reporter Mike Jones.
Insight: McCoy is dealing with a neck issue, but appears to be on schedule to start in Week 15. That doesn't mean he's a viable fantasy option.
 
12/7/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy may have lost the starting quarterback spot on Sunday.
Insight: He threw for 199 yards and two interceptions, and Robert Griffin III came in relief, in the fourth quarter. Stay tuned.
 
11/30/2014 5:26:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Colt McCoy threw for 392 yards and three touchdowns versus the Colts.
Insight: If there is a fantasy owner out there that desperately needs help at quarterback, there are worse options than McCoy. His only real blemish was the six sacks he took.
 
10/20/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy is expected to start during Week 8 against Dallas.
Insight: Coach Jay Gruden made the announcement on Monday, and with Robert Griffin III not expected back just yet, McCoy has passed Kirk Cousins on the depth chart. McCoy is no better than a QB2 for next Monday's tilt against the Cowboys.
 
10/19/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Redskins backup quarterback Colt McCoy played the second half against the Redskins and completed 11-of-12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: More importantly, he won the game. That may not be important for fantasy owners, but we are guessing no one started McCoy anyway. McCoy could be in line to take the starting role until Robert Griffin III returns.
 
10/19/2014 3:09:00 PM
Description: Journeyman Colt McCoy, the backup quarterback in Washington, started the second half against the Titans.
Insight: Starter Kirk Cousins was 10-for-16 for 139 yards for zero touchdowns and Washington was down at the half 10-6. McCoy started the second half by hitting Pierre Garcon for a 70-yard score so this might get interesting for next weekend.
 
10/14/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Journeyman Colt McCoy, the backup quarterback in Washington, is not a starting option, according to a Washington Post report.
Insight: The Redskins aren't winning and coach Jay Gruden was asked about a QB change. Fortunately for Kirk Cousins' fantasy owners a change to McCoy isn't in the cards. But when RGIII is ready, Cousins will return to the bench.
 
4/3/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Journeyman Colt McCoy is headed to Washington where he'll compete with Kirk Cousins for a backup job next season.
Insight: McCoy has thrown a combined 18 passes over the last two seasons. He's never been of much use to fantasy owners and should be ignored in all formats.
 
8/26/2013 12:35:00 PM
Description: San Francisco backup quarterback Colt McCoy has won the No. 2 job behind Colin Kaepernick, according to coach Jim Harbaugh.
Insight: Unfortunately, that doesn't mean that McCoy can produce at Kaepernick's level if the starter gets injured. The 49ers would likely make big changes to their offensive scheme and McCoy still has yet to show us he's fantasy worthy. There is no handcuff for Kaepernick.
 
8/9/2013 12:42:00 PM
Description: San Francisco backup quarterback Colt McCoy will have an MRI on his right shoulder/neck after suffering a stinger in Thursday's preseason game.
Insight: McCoy will only be of use to fantasy owners as a handcuff if Colin Kaepernick gets hurt.
 
4/1/2013 5:12:00 PM
Description: Jason La Canfora from CBS Sports is reporting that the Browns have traded quarterback Colt McCoy to the 49ers for a pair of draft picks.
Insight: McCoy will only be of use to fantasy owners if Colin Kaepernick gets hurt. Now that McCoy is out of the picture, Brandon Weeden won't face any competition for the starting quarterback job this season.
 
3/27/2013 6:05:00 PM
Description: The Browns are expected to part ways with backup quarterback Colt McCoy according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: If the Browns can't trade McCoy prior to the draft, they'll likely release him. McCoy completed 9-of-17 passes for 79 yards backing up rookie Brandon Weeden in 2012.
 
12/30/2012 11:50:00 AM
Description: Colt McCoy, Brandon Weeden's backup in Cleveland, is inactive for the season finale.
Insight: The Browns will start Thad Lewis, a situation to be avoided if at all possible.
 
4/27/2012 9:34:00 PM
Description: Colt McCoy could be on the trading block now that the Browns have drafted top QB prospect Brandon Weeden out of Oklahoma State.
Insight: McCoy was pretty average last year (14 TDs, 11 INTs), though to be fair, he didn't have a particularly strong group of receivers to throw to. McCoy appears to be headed for a backup role behind Weeden if the Browns don't end up moving him.
