While coach Marc Trestman has plenty of supporters, he probably doesn't have a bigger fan than McCown, who went from an afterthought backup – one that was out of the league in 2010 – to one of the mos...

McCown (back) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite throwing two picks Sunday, which marked his first start since Week 3, McCown fared well, completing 27-of-43 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns. The pair of scoring strikes were directed at rookies Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and as McCown grows more comfortable with his pieces, he should put up additional fruitful performances. While he emerged from the game with a back concern, McCown's activity level Wednesday should alleviate concerns for his availability on Game Day going forward.
McCown completed 27-of-43 passes for 301 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Falcons. He also had five carries for a team-high 39 rushing yards.

Coach Lovie Smith confirmed Wednesday that McCown will replace Mike Glennon as the starting quarterback Sunday against the Falcons, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCown suffered a sprained thumb in Week 3, which precipitated three games with inactive status. However, he's been available to play the past two outings, and Smith has deemed that a change under center is required, despite Glennon's fair performance in McCown's stead (10 touchdowns versus six interceptions). McCown is a decent candidate to succeed Sunday against a Falcons defense that has surrendered 291 passing yards per game and seven touchdown throws over the last four contests.
McCown will start for the Buccaneers in Week 10 against the Falcons, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCown hasn't seen action since injuring his thumb back in Week 3, but it sounds as if he may have earned back his starting job following his return to health. Mike Glennon has done a serviceable job in relief, throwing 10 touchdowns compared to six interceptions, but will return to a backup role after winning just one game as a starter. Before going down to injury, McCown had completed 63 percent of his pass attempts, but threw for just 420 yards and two touchdowns, compared to four interceptions. He has a favorable matchup this week against the Falcons, who have allowed 8.4 passing yards/attempt this year, worst in the NFL.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After filling in reliably for Jay Cutler in two starts in 2011, McCown never got off the bench in 2012 as the third quarterback but will re-assume top backup duties with the departure of Jason Campbell. He possesses some mobility but would likely oversee a ground-heavy attack if called upon in the event of another Cutler injury.

2012

McCown will be the third string quarterback behind Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell in 2012.

2009

Capable backup quarterback, who could definitely have some value if anything happens to starter Jake Delhomme in 2009.

2008

New offensive coordinator Dan Henning orchestrated some big-time passing attacks for both the Jets and Panthers. And head coach Tony Sparano had a big hand in the Cowboys offensive success, which was predicated on an explosive passing game. But this QB crop is weak. Henne is going to be given a chance to start in order to speed up his development in what's likely to be a wasted year. He's the proverbial "Box of Chocolates" long term; but he has virtually no chance of being a productive fantasy passer in 2008. So only keeper-league players need apply. The new Miami regime obviously turned the page on Beck, so why shouldn't we? McCown did some good things for the Raiders last year, and stranger things have happened than him becoming a useful player on a team that's probably going to take a hit on defense and lose a lot of games (and thus throw more often). He's shown enough to deserve a season- long shot somewhere as a starter, but the Dolphins seem emotionally invested in Henne as their QB of the future. But if someone in the NFL this year is going to pull a Derek Anderson, our money is on McCown.

2007

The journeyman may get some starts while the team preps prized rookie QB JaMarcus Russell. Head coach Lane Kiffin has been extremely impressed with McCown's attitude and work ethic.

2006

There are major questions about who will be at the helm of the Mike Martz-led attack heading into training camp. Martz’s presence is a big consideration when you take the Lions QB. But make sure your expectation is Martz Lite, as former defensive coordinator and current head coach Rod Marinelli will surely rein him in somewhat. This could be very good for the Lions’ QB, as it will help keep him in one piece. But there is no denying Martz’s offensive genius and ability to develop QBs. Add Detroit’s exciting receivers, especially the potentially dynamic Roy Williams, and a nice back in Kevin Jones to the offensive mix, and you have the makings of an explosive attack. Who will take the helm? McCown had an 82 rating last year close/late (41 attempts). He didn’t display great arm-strength, and his accuracy is similar to Kitna’s, with 16.7 percent poor throws (15.7 percent in ’04). McCown could make some plays with his legs, as he had 139 rushing yards last year despite starting only six games. So, 250 yards and a few TDs is a decent rushing projection if he were to land the job. If you’re looking for a tiebreaker among the QBs, their respective Wonderlic results might hold the answer. Martz is very big on the test, having recently assembled the NFL’s highest-scoring Wonderlic squad in St. Louis. McCown scored 30 on the intelligence test, which is very good. At the very least, if Kitna gets the job, any owner would be wise to grab McCown as an end-game pocket pick.

2005

Coach Dennis Green named Kurt Warner the starting quarterback in May, but if the injury-prone Warner were to go down, McCown would get another shot, this time with a healthy Anquan Boldin (provided he ends his holdout) and a more experienced Larry Fitzgerald. McCown, is a good athlete with good arm strength and surprising speed, but he needs to get rid of the ball quicker and improve his decision-making.

2004

The Cardinals’ QB wasn't awful last year and will produce some points with his legs. And he has a QB-friendly coach in Dennis Green and two outstanding possession receivers in Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald. But Green wants to win right away and may not be patient should McCown experience a sophomore slump. McCown wasn't bad in terms of accuracy last year (15.7 percent poor throws), though he was late on too many passes (nine percent of his passes were defensed).
