Potential bad news for the #Redskins: QB Alex Smith suffers what looks to be a very serious leg injury. He’s been carted off, air cast on his leg, and Colt McCoy is in.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 18, 2018
Four of the Redskins last six games will be on the road, so McCoy would have to get used to hostile environments. He does have two remaining games against the Philadelphia Eagles, who rank 20th in passing yards allowed.
Colt McCoy's played well just about every time he's gotten a shot to in Washington. I think the Redskins can compete with him.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 18, 2018
If McCoy can keep the Redskins on track and extrapolate his performance today across multiple games, then he could become fantasy relevant on a week to week basis.
Gruden: I’m a big believer in Colt McCoy and his ability to play QB in the National Football League. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime for him that I’m sure he would want under different circumstances. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/bBqedAZW6r— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) November 18, 2018
He's a veteran with the ability to run or throw the ball. He's not worth starting in most standard league's, but in deeper leagues or two-QB formats, he might be worth picking up and seeing what happens.
