With both Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater as the veterans on the team, it seemed impossible that Darnold would start before the second-half of the season. After a solid showing in Week 1 of the preseason, the Jets decided to give him the start in Week 2, though they felt enough promise to trot him back out in Week 3. After that start, they traded Bridgewater to the Saints and named Darnold the starter. Here goes nothing, right? After being given $20 million despite not having a clean bill of health, Bradford seemed like he was a lock to start for the Cardinals this year. After they landed Josh Rosen in the first-round, things are a bit cloudier, as he was widely considered as the most pro-ready quarterback in the class. By selecting Bradford (even in 2QB leagues), you're playing with fire.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Darnold will Week 1 as Gang Green's starter, but the position remains too deep to draft him in one-quarterback redraft leagues. While there's long-term gun-slinging upside, he'll probably endure some immediate growing pains, especially in the turnover department.Bradford has boasted a 68.6 completion % over the past three seasons, so he could deliver sneaky value in two-QB leagues. Yet he has not played 16 games in 2012, and Josh Rosen is waiting for his turn.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Jets have indicated the Darnold is the favorite to start the season over McCown at the point. There aren't many weapons, nor is Darnold polished enough to warrant value in even two-QB leagues, but he should provide a handful of stream-worthy starts.Bradford is no lock to hold his job through the pre-season and we know he is as injury prone as they come, but if he does end up starting, Bradford offers much more than the general public will remember. He is by no means a QB1 or even close, but he does have the best QB-rating over his past 16 starts than anyone in the NFL.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Sam Darnold completed 13-of-18 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown while adding eight rushing yards on two carries Friday in the Jets' preseason opener against the Falcons. He's making a case to begin the season as the starter. The Jets play the #1 easiest overall schedule in weeks 1-10 (based on pre-camp win totals) and the #2 easiest schedule of pass defenses weeks 1-17. A perfect situation to get a young Sam Darnold indoctrinated & allowed to visualize passing success early in his career. @SharpFootball Major injury concern or he'd be top-15
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 In theory, Bradford could be a steal. He does have Josh Rosen breathing down his neck and his knees could give at any moment, though
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Don't count out Darnold as being fully capable of beating out Josh McCown in camp, which would push Darnold up into the QB25 range.Bradford is one of the most accurate passers in the game and could be a great fit with Larry Fitzgerald, but he simply can't be relied upon to stay healthy and now has Josh Rosen right at his heels. Projecting Bradford to play even 12-13 games is a volatile strategy.
