Alright, I'm a not a huge fan of this guy, but we gotta start showing this kid some love, especially in Keeper/Dyntasy Leagues. While he may not be your big fantasy stud, he should go ahead of the Leftwich and Palmers of the draft.
McNown started the last 3 games of last season, giving us a glimpse of what he is capable of (NONE OF US NEED A RECAP OF WEEK 17). In that timed he rushed for more yards than ANY other quarterback, totaled 4 touchdowns (3 pass, 1 rush), and passed for 670 yards. His opponents during that streak included the Carolina Panthers and the Minnesota Vikings (safeties combined for 17 INTs).
And, the Cardinals are doing everything they can to improve his situation. They named Emmitt Smith the starter (I'm probabaly the lone Emmitt-supporter), drafted college phenom Larry Fitzgerald, and named QB-loving Denny Green as the Head Coach, a big improvement for the offense from McGinnis. If all their parts click, they probabaly won't be the top5 offense Denny promised (Vikings, Seahawks, Colts, Chiefs, and Rams all better), but if they produce how they can, that means A LOT of points for Fantasy newbie McNown, he may even win the starting job on your fantasy team.
The situation is very similar to that of the Houston Texans and the Cardinals should be set for a LONG time to come. Fitzgerald, Boldin, and Johnson (his primary WR) are all in their 1st or 2nd year, McNown is in his 3rd year, and the "old guy" for their offense is running back of the future is 25. There is no reason this team chemistry can't combine to form a prolific offense for many, many years to come.
So, when your draft comes along, don't forget about Cardinals QB John McNown. His ADP is the end of the 13th round, but he will warrant numbers deserving a 10th round pick, and still be considered a sleeper.
