LIONS 16, JETS 6, final: Todd Bowles gave Christian Hackenberg a shot, and it didn't work out. Now the decision is clear: Josh McCown should be named the starter. Maybe Hackenberg couldn't have changed that, even f he played well. Now it's a no-brainer. Frankly, the bigger question is, who's the No. 2 quarterback? Bryce Petty did a decent job.
Quarterback Christian Hackenberg fails again to lead the Jets to any points, likely giving the starting job to Josh McCown.

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.
