The book is still out on Sam Darnold. The Jets didn't put anyone around him. The Panthers have some weapons, but their offensive line is terrible. Darnold throws off his back foot too much. He reminds me of Jay Cutler, only with a weaker arm. I'm not touching him. Avoid.The Lions accomodated Matthew Stafford's request and traded him to LA netting Jared Goff and some draft picks in return for a horrendous contract. Goff has no WRs and a coach who wants to smash skulls. Not the recipe for fantasy greatness for your QB. Avoid
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 If you were thinking the hate went too far with Goff and that he might be a decent streamer/platoon option, think again. His start to the season is a nightmare and it really doesn't get any better as it goes on. The first seven weeks include the 49ers, Packers, Ravens, Bears, Vikings, and Rams. If you want to find a great matchup, you have to wait all the way until Week 16. The Lions offense isn't one you should aggressively attack in fantasy drafts.

LOVE Joe Brady's offense and these weapons. If Darnold is any good, he's in a perfect spot to show it. Not convinced he is, but willing to take a stab to find out 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The curse of Adam Gase has been lifted. Now, Darnold gets a fresh start on a team that has enough weapons to succeed in the NFL. The talent is there, but can he overcome his mental hurdles and bounce back? If he does, he could be one of the surprise risers in fantasy football this season.The Lions may not have any WRs, but they may have one of the best offensive lines in football. That factor alone could catapult Jared Goff into some fantasy relevance this season.
